Bought this minivan for my business and was so impressed with the ride, gas mileage and features, that we took it on vacation for 10 days. It doesn't ride like a minivan. It rides like a car. The standard stereo and CD with steering wheel controls is excellent. I test drove a 2005 Kia Sedona and found the Mazda MPV to be more quiet, smooth and stable. Don't overlook this one!
Rear AC, fold down 3rd row seats, removable captains chairs in 2nd row, cargo space for groceries behind 3rd row seats, steering wheel controls for stereo, storage compartment under passenger seat.
Move the shifter from the steering wheel to the floor. Everything else about this vehicle is excellent.
