2006 Mazda MPV LX-SV 4dr Minivan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


I've only owned this vehicle for 4 months but so far, it's been great. I love the size. It's not a tank (aka Odyssey/Sienna). I also like having a vehicle that isn't on every corner. The MPV really stands out from the crowd. Took it on a long trip this summer and it performed flawlessly. The interior doesn't have that cheap quality feel that some cars have. It feels solid.

Best Features

The size is great. It has a relatively smooth ride. Removable 2nd row captains chairs. Radio/CD controls on the steering wheel are really nice. Roll-down 2nd row windows are cool (as are the dual sliding doors).

Worst Features

Considering its size, it doesn't get great gas mileage. Don't get me wrong, it's still decent. The shift handle on the steering column is bad! It blocks your view (and access) to other knobs on the middle panel. You can get around this by using steering wheel controls. V6 is on the weaker side.
