Wish Mazda 9 were imported

2000 Mazda MPV ES 4dr Minivan


Bought this van new, fully loaded for about 25,500. No significant problems. Approaching 100,000 mi. Starting to look for new people mover. MPV is still being made in Japan under Mazda 9 badge. Unfortunately, Ford is trying to get you to buy higher priced Flex, and forced Mazda to drop import. Nothing else on market carries the easy handling, small size, multiple flexibility, and comfortable ride. I still get compliments on the smooth ride.

Best Features

Handling in parking lots. Smooth ride on the hwy. Flexibility of seating and cargo arrangements. I have often pulled the back captains chairs, dropped the back bench, and hauled cargo to family members in other states, then unloaded, raised back bench, and still had four seater to go to dinner.

Worst Features

The 3.0 engine was probably a help, but I have read complaints about tho one used. My 2.6 Duretec only gets about 17 mpg in town and 22 on road
