1990 Mazda MPV LX 3dr Minivan


For its age and size, the Mazda MPV is a great little car. Depending upon how well maintained it is, the vehicle can get up to 18mpg while holding 7 passengers. A reliable car, however it is terrible to work on. At least on the V6 model, even changing the spark plugs requires several extensions on your ratchets. All things considered, it holds up better than an Aerostar, and looks nicer too. It's good in a crash for the people inside, but even a small collision will total this vehicle. Strengths: holds 7 passengers comfortably, safe, compact, easy to drive. Weaknesses: sluggish acceleration, difficult to work on, handles poorly in snow (for RWD models).

Best Features

The back end is customizable to accommodate whatever load you put in it, the seats fold down to an almost flat position, and the rear seat can also fold up to give the cargo area more space. The car heats up fast in cold weather, and has numerous little goodies tucked away inside it.

Worst Features

Being an older vehicle, it's going to need some parts if you choose to buy one. I myself had to replace the starter, all the belts, front rotors and brakes, and rear brakes. Just make sure as to the condition the vehicle is in before you buy it. Check to see what work the previous owner had done.
