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

Review

Great MPV for its price. Paid about $20,500.00 for LX model with LX Plus pPackage and power sliding doors (great Needed option). Gets about 21 mpg on mixed hwy/city driving (35/65). It does not have clunky transmission problems as others have reported. Its slow to shift sometimes when you wanna pass people on the interstate. Solution, turn off the overdrive and bring it down to a 4 speed ... zoom zoom. Turns tightly on curves like a car. We picked this because the Toyota and Hondas were just too expensive -- $23,000/$26,000 for low end models. And because it gives a standard 4/50,000 warranty.

Favorite Features

Power sliding doors, sporty look, removable 2nd row seats and easy to hide 3rd row seats. Double hangers on the middle so you can put a rack to hang lots of clothes.

Suggested Improvements

Mazda should make the side impact air bag/traction control standard to address the poor rating on side impact by the Highway institute. It also should allow current owners to pay only $400.00 to install this option by the dealership, for current owners who would like to have the option added.
