We liked the Sienna LE okay but didn't care for its almost $29,000 price tag. Saw an advertisement in the paper, Mazda MPV LX 2006 for $16,397. Called the dealer, confirmed the price, got the color and stock number and went to pick up the car. No hassle negotiating! The Mazda was about $7500 off MSRP. Have been driving almost a month now and love every minute of it.
Pleasantly surprised to find the interior almost resembles that of the Sienna's. Of course the Mazda is more compact yet it fits our needs well. Beautiful exterior. Can't beat on pricing. Love the way the key folds. Original factory warranty for 4 years/50,000 miles.
Bigger floor compartment so when folding third row seat, do not need to remove headrest. More acceleration power.
