I can't believe it's rear wheel drive??
By johnny marshall on


1997 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan


Bought it with load and people in
mind. That's all I got.Constant rear
passenger door locking problem, it
locks when it shouldn't. In winter, all
locks go screwy. I NEVER asked if it
was front wheel drive when I bought it.
Japanese DON'T make rear wheel drive
anything anymore, right? WRONG! New
winter tires on, it handles worse than
my old GMC vandura!
No confidence in this vehicle
whatsoever. Even the Big 3 make front
wheel drive minivans!
What happened to these guys on this
one? The fuel economy is aweful, I
can't wait to change it! I think a
Sante Fe will be better than this.
What a shame!

Best Features

I like it fine when the weather's nice outside and I'm not driving it, they said the CRV was overpriced, underpowered!!

Worst Features

Front-wheel drive people!!! The AWD must be murder on fuel economy!
