Fun but Unreliable

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


Lack of reliability has been the biggest disappointment with this vehicle. Tires were bald before the warranty expired. Within a year after warranty expired, oxygen sensors had to be replaced ($500) and engine coils had to be replaced (another $500). My sister-in-law has the exact same make/model/year, and she's had the same problems--it's like clockwork. It also emits a stinky sulfur smell immediately after turning off. At least it's purty and comfy and fun to drive.

Best Features

Fold down and removable rear seats. Captain's chairs. Styling.

Worst Features

Get the gear shift out of the way so I can tune the stereo. Nix the noxious sulfur odor. Cure the reliability issues.
