The Perfect GUV (golf utility vehicle)
By retiredgolfer on
2005 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I'm retired and the primary use for my vehicle is to take me and my buddies to and from golf. I've had a pickup for years, but decided I wanted something that would keep the clubs/carts inside and have the capability to carry more than 2 golfers in comfort. Tried several different SUV's and smaller station wagons but none had adequate cargo capacity for my needs. Tried some other minivans but they seemed too big or too pricey. Stumbled on the MPV and found it perfect at the right price!
Flexibility to go from cargo to passenger carrying configuration. Fold down 3rd row seat. Sliding 2nd row bucket seats. Power windows in sliding doors. Decent MPG. Drives like a car, very quiet and smooth.
I guess just the location of the shift lever could be moved. Any other improvements would probably add to cost of vehicle and I love the price!
