2003 Mazda MPV Minivan LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We just purchased our MPV two days
ago. One reason why we chose this
vehicle is because of all the other
reviews. We are very pleased with it.
It is a really nice looking van. (not
grandmaish). The only drawback is that
the stereo controls are behind the
gearshift when in drive. The price is
unbelievable when compared to the
Sienna or Odyssey.


Best Features

Love the bench seat that folds down into floor. No more trying to store a seat in the garage.Also, the passenger windows roll half way down.


Worst Features

Only improvement would be the stereo/gearshift placement.

2003 Mazda MPV Minivan ES 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

When we first test drove the Mazda MPV
we were impressed with how it handled.
The steering is responsive and the
braking is quick. It didn't seem to
roll as much in turns as one might
expect a minivan to do. Now having
driven for 6 months, we still enjoy it
a great deal. It has made several long-
distance trips in addition to the usual
around town driving. It has sufficient
power for passing on the freeway, and
the steering feels tight in turns. It
seems to have sufficient room for our
little family. It feels quite safe and
secure.


Best Features

Some of the features that we have particularly enjoyed include the fold- down 3rd row seat, the passenger windows that roll down, and of course the sunroof.


Worst Features

The few things that we have not liked as much: not a lot of room between the 1st and 2nd row seats; tough to get CDs to fit correctly into the CD storage in the dash; no cupholders for 3rd row driver-side passenger.

2003 Mazda MPV Minivan LX 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Just purchased a new LX MPV. We were
sold on the handling, reliability,
quadruple 5-star safety rating, sporty
look and all the cool features at a
very reasonable price (22k with
rebate). We bought one with power
sliding doors, roof rack, 4-seasons
package, fog lights, rear step plate,
side airbags and traction control. Got
it at invoice price and $ 2000 rebate.
We were turned off by the attitude of
Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna
salespeople, who demanded MSRP or more.
Mazda salespeople were much more polite
and helpful. Mazda needs to market this
minivan a lot more.


Best Features

Pwr sliding doors, fog-lights, fold- down third row, removable second row seats, audio & cruise controls on the steering wheel, 16" alloy wheels, 4 pwr windows, rear heater and a/c controls. Quite roomy even though people says it's small. Fits really well in our 2- car garage.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage - always a good thing now that Fuel prices are so high.

2003 Mazda MPV Minivan LX-SV 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

When my wife and I were looking to
trade our prized Civic Si for a MiniVan
we looked at several different models
and manufacturers. Honda was obvious
and so was Toyota (2004 Sienna) but the
real show stopper for us was the MPV LX
with the Tow package. It just handled
more like our Si then the others. It
wasn't so large that parking would be
an issue and I thought it was every bit
as sharp looking as the other two
vehicles already mentioned. The
deciding factor however was the price.
0% financing, no payments for 90 days,
the best value for our trade in and
free maintenance for 3 years sealed the
deal for us.


Best Features

Smoking hot deal, Exterior lines, Handleing - especially with the 16 inch alloys, Ride comfort adn aggressive engine.


Worst Features

None that I can think of yet.
