I had my eye on this van since I bought our last car several years ago. Mazda had built this generation MPV for 8 years or so, and so had plenty of time to work out any kinks. And it shows in terms of reliability and quality.
Steering wheel mounted stereo controls; dual zone climate control; roll down windows in sliding doors; easy to store third row; smooth V6; cabin air filter.
I'd sacrifice some of that power for better mileage (I don't think I've ever had to floor it); better design for moving between rows including foot operated emergency brake, removable armrests and seats that hug closer to the doors.
