2000 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan


Purchased in Nov. 2001 as a used vehicle and have had no real mechanical issues to complain about. It has performed well over the last six years. The biggest complaint I have is the corrosion issue. I first noticed a problem around the rear wheel well. Then around the edges of the doors. The hood has now perforated at the front edge and the paint is bubbling along that same edge. On the underside of the hood a chunk 4"x3" came off when I closed the hood. The rubber seal (to keep water out) no longer provides a seal because there is nothing for it to attached to. Buyer beware if you purchase this van you will have a rust bucket. Beware!!!

Best Features

Fold down third row into floor, third row can be flipped to be used as a bench, captain slide together to make single bench, and roll down windows in sliding doors.

Worst Features

Paint the vehicle properly to prevent major corrosion. Have the second row captain chairs move fore and aft. Improve fuel economy.
