Very Happy ... So Far

2005 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

We've had our MPV for almost 3 months. So far we're more than happy with it. The ride is comfortable and car like. Its tidy dimensions, compared to rivals from Honda and Toyota, are a plus to our family of 4. The sliding rear doors are a blessing, since our 3 year old doesn't know the meaning of "slowly" or "gently" when opening his door. As far as reliability goes, so far, so good. 2 1/2 months is a little too early to make a judgment. Let's see how things go in the next 4 years. As I said, the MPV's smaller size is a plus for us. However, if you feel "bigger is better" in terms of cargo and passenger space, then an Odyssey or Sienna would be a better choice.

Favorite Features

Sliding middle seat. Nice to change configuration depending on rear seat needs.

Suggested Improvements

1. Column shifter in the way of stereo controls and AC button when in drive. 2. Having to remove the headrests when flattening the 3rd row. 3. Make the 3rd row a split bench. 4. A bit more low end torque. 5. Despite smaller size, mpg is equal to or worse than Ody, Sienna, or Quest.
