No Worries!!
By rdsterl@hotmail.com on


2000 Mazda MPV ES 4dr Minivan


52k+ mi, still wows us. First Mazda,
after Camry/2 4Runners. Quality
excellent, w/ 2 exceptions:
Stowable armrests for the middle row of
seats failed, and slide off metal frame
occasionally. Primarily due to kids
sitting on them, Mazda not to blame?
3rd seat "headrest guides" break off
when used in "stadium" seating
position, and we use it often. Passing
pwr great; drivetrain (?) kicks down
when needed right away, though this
will affect mileage, i.e. hubby
driving. Size, 2 kids/2 dogs, about
perfect. More, plus baggage, consider
Toyota/Honda. No towing experience.
Fuel econ avg 26+ mpg hwy.

Best Features

Fit/finish excellent for the price. Door handle design (like a Mercedes) seems to be new standard for all mfrs.-- very convenient. Comfortable seats for long trips.

Worst Features

Power seat option for driver's side. Fix the clearance problem with the shift lever--blocks radio when in 'D'. Sturdier design for stowable armrests. Cubbies in the cargo area for the 3rd seat headrests would be nice.
