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


My first experience with a Mazda
vehicle was my neighbor's 1992 Protege
LX with 175,000 miles on it. My GM
vehicle with 80,000 miles on it had
broken down, and I had to use her car
to go get parts. I had so much fun in
that car with 175,000 miles on it. It
also felt better put together than my
GM vehicle. Since I was in the market,
I immediately researched and purchased
a 2000 Protege ES. I am now a proud
owner of a 2002 Coastal Blue MPV ES,
and I feel just a strongly about it.
Just as the Protege is the most fun
small car, the MPV is the most fun
minivan. The fact that it looks so good
only cinches the deal in my opinion.

Best Features

Decent stereo, 17" wheels, very stylish, small enought to be nimble, large enough to be useful. Able to deal and get a good price.

Worst Features

Like everyone else, fix the shifter (some push buttons on the steering wheel would be nice!), make the rear seat split/folding, seat heaters for leather seats, and make a deal with Jaquar to put the 230 hp 3.0 with the exact same transmission in the MPV.
