door lock actuators fail a lot NO Recall

2000 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan


Good overall van, BUT be ready to spend $150 plus for the door lock actuators when they fail about every two years. This is the price for the PART ONLY for each door. This van we have has both front door actuators that have failed within weeks of each other in 2003. Should be a recall item as MANY others have this same problem, but Mazda does NOTHING. Be warned! Oh if you have the dealer do the work, you are looking at $350 P&L and up per door!

Best Features

Very good ride even after 7 years (in 2008), and 130K miles.

Worst Features

Make door lock actuators that don't break after two years! This is a real expensive problem dumped on the customer!
