    Great Family Spcious Car — great reliable family car. Comfortable and spacious, great moon roof. Cargo area decent size. Not to stylish outside, however inside is great. The rear ac system could be improved to be independent from the from one. Great engine, I wish Mazda has a 4 cylinders variance.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: spacious and reliable

    Cons: not to stylish outside

    Mazda Mpv Impressions — Overall, i think it's a great family car. Obviously it's not designed for daily commutes or for super handling but it does the job averagely. The size gives it a plus over other family vans and the add-ons like leather trims, child lock, etc. makse it nice. The cargo space and the ability for the back seats to fold into the floor is a really great plus for lond-distance travelling with luggage.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great family car as well as good on cargo space, accessibility and long trip drive.

    Cons: Not really good on gas mileage. Sliding door motors tend to give problems.

    All Round Winner — I'm still driving this at 192,500 miles and it is still comfortable with get up and go. I'm starting to look for a replacement just because of the mileage and some minor problems that may befixable for not too much money.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: reliable, good power, lots of space and seating, handleswell,parks easily, comfortable for driver and passengers and great dog hauler!

    Cons: they don't make them any more

    Pretty Good Van Overall. Nice Stiff Ride And Excellent Acceleration. — Very good performance for a van, great acceleration, go-kart like handling. Rather narrow.

    Pros: Excellent performance, handling. Great reliability.

    Cons: Once a vacuum hose was torn. Common problem with this van and Fords.
    Caused rough idle and poor fuel economy.

    Short, But Spacious Cargo-hauler, Decent Performance Within Category As Well — I've owned this car for less than a year, but it's made a pretty good impression so far. This is one of the shortest minivans available in today's market, and the advantages are huge. First, of all, where I live, San Francisco, parking is a big deal. The MPV is more than a foot shorter than the Honda Odyssey, and you'd be surprised at how many more spaces are available because of that. The cargo room only decreases by a little, so this trade-off is highly worth it. Compared to its main competitors from Honda, Toyota, and Nissan, the MPV is also a Lot lighter...900 pounds under the Odyssey, 500 under the Sienna, and 700 under the Quest. It's not a one-sided battle, obviously, with the engine lagging behind the others by an average of 40 hp. Still, the lower weight makes this car feel much more agile through turns. Of course, nobody in their right mind would try to actually race with a minivan, but it's just a confidence-inspiring ride.

    Pros: relatively light
    short for easier parking
    nimble ride

    Cons: uphills aren't exactly effortless
    fuel economy is a bit low

    Mazda Mpv — Cargo rack is useful with limited cargo space in the rear. Captains chairs make access to the rear seats easier. 6 cylinder has good power for the size of the vehicle. Looking at the CX9 as the replacement. Cheers and Happy Hunting!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great Family Vehicle

    Cons: It is a minivan
