91K and need new engine
By L Reynolds on


2004 Mazda MPV ES 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


The 2004 Mazda MPV was reliable until about 65K when I started having trouble with numerous ignition coils. The last straw was last week - replaced all three rear coils - #3 kept misfiring and dealership recommended to replace them all. Then ck eng. light came on again and they cleaned fuel injectors. Light came on again, they turned it off because it said #3 coil again and it was just replaced. Last Friday started and it shook like a go cart - had it towed - now I am told the engine is blown. They want $7K to replace and $3300 for a rebuilt with 1 yr warranty. So frustrating - used to love this van but now am afraid of all its problems - don't know whether to fix - worth $500. now!

Best Features

Love the fact that back seats can be removed - great for hauling college stuff. Also love that back windows go down.

Worst Features

Cannot see radio or a/c because shift arm in the way. Also had rust that they told me was the "wrong" kind for the warranty to cover - found out that was BS - should have been covered according to several reputable body shops.
