Not bad for a minivan
By khealy on


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


I don't really like minivans but I need
to keep all of my toys out of the
weather and away from thieves (skis,
bikes, etc.). I was attracted to the
MPV for its small size, adequate
engine, 5-sp transmission and
handling. I have't been disappointed
with any of these features. The
engine/trans work very well, even on
high mountain passes. The handling is
better than I have ever experienced in
a minivan on twisty mtn roads. It's as
fun as a minivan can get! Fuel economy
is ranging from 20-23 mpg with most of
my driving in suburbs and mountains.
Much better than any of the SUVs I
looked at.

Best Features

3.0l engine and 5-sp transmission make this van very enjoyable to drive (especially for a minivan). Handling is also excellent for a minivan.

Worst Features

Needs to have the following features available: auto-on headlights, climate control (with so much glass), heated front seats, and a better stereo (the option stereo has pretty poor sound quality)
