I Can't Complain

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


We purchased our MPV used in 2005 with about 45,000 miles on it.
With an extended warranty, we paid total about $11,000.
It now has 227,000 miles on it (365,000km).

We had to have the transmission replaced at 95K miles, but it was covered under our extended warranty.
We had coils replaced at one point, and a couple of other repairs around the $300 mark.
Regular oil changes and routine maintenance (brakes, trans. fluid, etc), this van has kept chugging along.
Along with daily driving, we drove from Auburn, WA to B.C. Canada twice a week for 2 years (6 hours round trip), while hauling 2 drums, harnesses, 2 sets of bagpipes, and 4 teenagers, 2 adults.
We averaged 22-24 hwy mpg

Best Features

Handles well, drives like a car. Always felt zippy and had good power. Good fuel efficiency for a minivan (mine, anyway). Love the fold down 3rd row seat.

Worst Features

Seating could be a little more comfortable/cushy. After long hours in the van, tushes tend to get tired.
