Pros

Great handling minivan and seems to be really reliable. The van has a good radio and power windows all around. Dual-zone ac/heat. Easier to park than full size minivan.

Cons

MPG could be a little better, I prefer a larger sized minivan for more room.

Too Bad I Can't Get A 2013 Mazda Mpv! — I wish the MPV was still being sold by Mazda, I would consider buying another one to replace my current minivan. I will have another child next year and a smaller Mazda5 will definitely not cut it. Compared to the other minivans on the market, the MPV has character and is a standout, even being 7 years old! For a 2005 the Mazda MPV is a solid vehicle and offers amenities that are still appreciated today. (update) Had the baby already and she is in the middle row most of the time. The van has been in the shop a couple of times fairly recently. The first was the uhaul wiring that caused the van to not start (fuse went out). The next problem was that the alternator went out. The car has over 150,000 miles and I guess that is not too bad. The van now has some sort of leak, I think it is a coolant leak. The stain on the asphalt goes away after it rains.

You Drive,you Know. — strong body,poor acceleration,bracking and handling is fine.it gets rust under the trim and lower parts of the body. too many computers for everything form brakes to ignition. i love the rear seats,which can give you lots of room in the back.

Low Owner Cost, Reliable And Sporty. — Reliable. Front wheel hub bearing is a beast to replace. AC does not cool rear passengers well. Steering wheel air bag rattles. Looks sporty and gets you there in reasonable comfort. The Mazda MPV is a fun car to Drive.

Traded My Odyssey For An Mpv. Good Move! — Love the size and the way it drives. Zoom Zoom Zoom. Too much road noise though. My 2000 MPV was a lot quieter.

1989 Mazda Mpv By Lance
