2006 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Excellent and good looking vehicle, no major problem as of today. Good handling, braking is average in winter conditions and the windshield seems to be a problem (had to be changed twice - cracked by small rocks impacts). You should consider buying a rear step protector because the paint can be easily scratched when loading or unloading from the cargo bay. Too bad that Mazda want to replace it with a cross-whatever vehicle (Mazda 7).
Last seat row that folds into the floor. Sliding seat (second row). Decent acceleration, good gas mileage in normal driving condition. Back seat air conditioning controls (a must in summer heat). Rear door windows.
Standard roof rack (please). Auxiliary input for MP3 players. Auto shut-off front light system. Rear bumper radar system for better parking maneuvers. Central control for all the interior lamps. Better protected spare tire space (very messy when you have to change a tire).
