2005 Mazda MPV LX-SV 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A) LX-SV 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Driving the van is very pleasant. The gear shifter gets in the way of the console, but the controls on the steering wheel make up for most of the inconvenience. Gas mileage better than in my previous minivans. Drives more car-like than many other vans I tested.
Price, Price, Price.The fold-under third bench is what also sold me on this van. Also, in and out access is car-like as is the steering and general handling. Roll down windows on the sliding doors is also a great feature.
The gear shifter should be shorter or on the floor, so it's not blocking the console. Also, no access to general indoor lighting by the driver is inconvenient.
