2001 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


This is not a van you want to buy when you have other choices like Odyssey and Sienna. the plus point is it drives nice - more like a sedan. The first 4-5 years were almost trouble free with few niggles. From then on too many problems. Recently, it won't start and had to be towed and found out that the engine froze because there was no oil ! The oil is changed on time and there is no leak. How did the oil disappear in 3 months - is a mystery !!! in winters of Chicago, the sliding doors always get stuck and you cannot open it! If you are buying new one, sell it after three years. If you are buying old one, I will look elsewhere.

Best Features

Drives like car, foldable third seat.

Worst Features

Transmission jerks, sliding doors needs improvements. There is lumbar support for the driver seat and is very uncomfortable for long drives without firm back support. O2 sensors went out few times. need better sensors for low oil etc.
