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


Bought this car new to replace a 1991 MPV. Gas mileage was good to start but as it gets older it's terrible. Hate the spare tire setup. It's the worst to try and change to the spare. It broke right after the warranty expired. Mazda needs to re-think the mechanism of storing the spare. Mazda also needs to be real on the carpet color choices. Kids, pets, etc. are riding in this vehicle and the light colored carpeting takes a severe beating. Thank goodness for steam cleaners. Upholstery is light but cleans up nicely. Leg room and clearance between back seat and middle seats are hard to maneuver unless you're a kid. I like the middle seat feature of being able to move them apart.

Best Features

Love the back seat folding flat and the well for groceries and stuff.

Worst Features

Driver and passenger cup holders are not deep enough. Large cups fall over. See above review for more improvements.
