Great minivan at a reasonable price !

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


I hated thinking of spending $23- $28k
for a Sienna or Odyssey (SUV's with
room are even higher) ! Found a
great "in-between" bargain in the MPV.
It is definitely smaller than your
standard minivan on the outside but
inside I was amazed how much it had to
offer . Even in their base SV model you
get ABS, disappearing 3rd seat, sliding
side by side captains chairs, stereo
control on the steering wheel, etc,
etc ! What really swung me over were 2
things. 1) You can get this car for
under 20k. and 2) They beefed up the
engine to 200hp and it is smooth as
silk. We took it on a 10 hour trip to
Maine 2 days after we bought it and
realized this was a great choice.

Best Features

Disappearing 3rd seat. Tons of headroom, sliding middle seats (bucket to bench), ABS standard.

Worst Features

Gas mileage about 21-23mpg on the trip to Maine, fully loaded with AC running would have like to have seen 25+ given the smaller size and stronger engine.
