1998 Mazda MPV Overview

The Mazda MPV's only noticeable upgrade for 1998 was the addition of a CD player, which was included as standard equipment on all models. Other than that, the four-door MPV minivan was virtually unchanged from the previous year. Four versions were available -- the MPV LX with two-wheel or four-wheel drive, and a higher-end MPV ES version, also with two-wheel or four-wheel drive.
All models came with four-wheel anti-lock brakes. Power was provided by a 3.0-liter V6 engine that produced 155 horsepower. A four-speed automatic was the only transmission available.
Standard features for the MPV LX included power windows, dual airbags, cruise control, fog lights, power door locks, and power exterior mirrors. The ES version added leather captain's chairs, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a rear heater, and a self-leveling system, among other features.
The MPV's roominess, versatility, durability, and safety features were among its positive points cited by drivers. Most drivers reported have very few mechanical problems with the vehicle, and replacement parts were easy to find. Drivers also liked the MPV's sporty looks, although on the downside, drivers noted that its the ride could be harsh and that at times the vehicle seemed underpowered.
