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


My wife & I purchased this mini-van with 12,000 and we now have 66,000 miles on this vehicle. Initial problems included the Shift Solenoid for the transmission, oil gasket and seals around timing chain case cover were replaced and a noise with the fan was fixed. All work was covered under the warranty. We have put on 40,000 miles since our problems without any other issues. The car has a V6 dohc Ford American made engine that was used in the Taurus. Funny thing is our problems were all related to the Japanese parts - go figure! Anyway, I would consider buying another if they were still being made. We plan to keep this car until it dies (hopefully not anytime soon)!

Best Features

Windows on back doors go up and down - feature not found on other mini vans. Seating for 7 with decent cargo. Setting for 4 gives excellent cargo space.

Worst Features

Gear shift too long and interferes with dash controls. Interior plastic door panels are cracked on both sides - needs quality improvement in the plastic parts.
