I need to upgrade our family to a
larger vehicle, we where drive a
Toyota Tacoma Double cab Truck
and that was our base for the quality
we wanted in the new car/van.
We found the Mazda to be a Great
Match, it had the style the wife
wanted and the features I wanted for
the family. The fit and finish seem to
be very good, and the engineering
seems to be well thought out, great
engine power really makes it move on
the high way and the handling is
almost sports car like.
We really dont have any one favorite
feature, we see a great package for
the family, but if I had to pick, its
7 passenger capacity and great sound
system and DVD player for the kids.
Larger armrests, and a center well or
some kind of storage space between the
Had a Voyager and replaced the
transmission. Had a caravan and
replaced the tranny twice. Five
trannies between two vehicles. Spoke
to friends about this. Astonished to
learn that they too had replaced the
trannies on their American vans. That,
to me, is inexcuseable.
I am really pleased with the Mazda.
Nice fit and finish on interior and
exterior. Alloy wheels really enhance
the look. Great stereo. Smooth ride
and the 3 Liter engine is just right.
This choice was a no brainer. A small
van but about as big as a full size SUV
(but without the guilt !) Easily the
best valued van of the Odessey \
Sienna\ MPV grouping.
Excellent handling, cornering, a lot of
power (0-60mph est. 8.2 sec.), stopping
is tight, body style is great for a
minivan (even look better in person than
photo), a lot of room for 7 people, or 4
people with bikes, I love it, nice to
drive and cruise around town, easy to
park, very good value!
GFX package for sporty appearance, 17
inch alloys, nice tires, cornering,
powerful engine (IT REALLY ZOOMS!!)
Nice "thrumbing-down" third-row seat.
Electronic socket. DVD system. Stereo
Add a spoiler, HID headlights, sun
visors for the sides of the front driver
and passenger, not just one visor for
It is fun safe, and spaces the kids out
well to eliminate fighting! Manuvers
great, love the looks, upohlstery is
like a luxury car! I had Toyota's for a
long time, and they kept getting
cheaper, and breaking. So glad I
investigated vans on this site and
others for 6 months, and choose this
one. The paint doesn't come off from
bugs like all the Toyotas, and the ride
Interior quality. Keyless remote
works far away. Needed the panic
botton in the middle of the night,& it
scared people. Windshield
doesn't fog up like other vehicles.
Car seat is held really tight,&
isn't in the way. Love radio

The gas tank opens where the slidding
door is, and could be dangerous when
pumping gas, but the other vans have
this problem too. The center console
flips shut easy, and it isn't safe to
keep a drink on it. I would buy this
van again in a heartbeat!!!
