2002 Mazda MPV LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


I bought this car out of pure necessity. I couldn't wedge anything bigger into the underground parking stall for our condo.

The new 300hp V6 gives it a surprising zip when passing or driving on hills, and the smaller wheel base provides excellent maneuverability on our narrow city roads. The folding 3rd row seat was also an important feature to me since I don't have a garage.

The trade off for the MPV's small size comes at the expense of passenger comfort, especially for the poor souls sitting in the third row. Definitely unsuitable for long commutes.

Best Features

Car-like feel, fold-away third row seat.

Worst Features

Gear shift gets in the way of radio & A/C controls.
