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


Nice van to replace our '04 trailblazer
(nightmare car!). Great handling, peppy
drivetrain, compact package, quality
looking and feeling interior bits.
Reliability has been great despite
warnings to contrary-drove rental MPV
for 3500 miles with no probs and liked
it well enough to buy an 04 which now
has 2000 mi on it. Stable, surefooted
handling and silky smooth tranny make
for a fun drive (in a minivan?!) Kids
like roll down windows in side doors.
People complain about shift lever in
way of radio-no problems if you use
controls on steering wheel (actually,
no real problem anyway). We enjoy this
van as much as our first Honda Ody but
without the transmission problems of
the Ody.

Best Features

3rd row fold flat seat, stereo, ride/handling, mid row slide seat, smooth transmission and willing engine, strong reliability so far, great looks, clean, well designed towing package, LX PLUS package is a nice trim level between entry model and high-end. All season rubber mats are worth the $$$!

Worst Features

Seat material is a little on the lightweight side (bought custom fit covers for kids)-not much else-we like the van!
