Great scores but.....
By PatrickInAlabama on


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


The issue is once we approached 5 years/80K miles, the engine light came on. It's been downhill ever since. After 8 visits to 5 different shops including the dealer, we paid $3K to fix the catalytic converter. The final straw is 1 day after forking over $3,000, the light comes on again and the transmission shifts all over the place. The dealer has no clue. If you ever are told you have to replace the catalytic converter ....don't. Time to go shopping. We were told we need to spend another $300 for some assembly and the guy wasn't sure this would fix the problem.

Best Features

I can park the MPV anywhere. Nothing short of a subcompact can touch the MPV in maneuverability.

Worst Features

Not sure about this. After 5 years and 80K miles the vehicle went downhill fast. What's astounding is that the dealer had no clue what was going wrong and he had a technician come in from Atlanta to take a look.
