Why Pay More for Honda and Toyota
By Justin Owens on
2005 Mazda MPV ES 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I have only had this van for a month, but with all the features the MPV has, why pay more for the Honda or Toyota? We purchased the ES, with everything on it. It has leather, DVD, moonroof, power doors -- it's loaded. Sticker on this MPV was $32,190, but after using S-plan and rebates we only paid $26,718. This saved me almost $10,000 compared to the Honda and Toyota equipped the same. The only thing you lose with the MPV is the room. It is smaller than the others, but it feels more like a car than a van. I have not had any of the issues stated by the editors review. The MPV is a great value and fun to drive, plus you don't see these at every stop light like you do the Honda and Toyota.
DVD, Moonroof, roll-down rear windows, power doors, fold flat rear seat, the engine is peppy, size, 4 year/50,000 warranty with roadside assistance.
Gear shift blocks volume control when in drive, but we have the volume control on the steering wheel, automatic locks, automatic lights, heated seats
