"A medium sized van that's easy to drive and a dream to park. Removable 2nd row seats create a spacious cargo area..I have easily moved couches, bikes and tons of moving boxes. Rear seat will reverse to make a rear-facing bench seat for railgate parties. Lots of glass for great visibility. The convenience of a van with comfort and drivability of a sedan. Reliable and well-maintained. It's a Mazda so there's a ton of miles left in her. You'll love it like I have."

Perfect for our purposes when we bought it.

"Great family car when kids where young and even now - great for hauling, for loading up with bikes, sports gear, suitcases, etc. Perfect for active adults. Not necessarily a 'cool' look, but I've found no other vehicle type that fits up to 4 adult road or mountain bikes side-by-side upright and that doesn't drive like a truck. Good for surf boards, wake board, scuba equipment, gardening stuff; great versatility with seat configuration. Love it."

"We bought this car with less than 100 miles. We are now well on our way to it having 120,000! I have loved the fact that it was smaller than the comparable vehicles w/o giving up on any of the conveniences. We have never had to do more than normal maintenance. Really wish they were still making these!"

Pros: "great price fun drive, economical"

Cons: "rear shocks are low weight, pain2change air filter"

"Only negative is If we loaded some heavy weight extended family it would bottom out rear shocks Otherwise handled p,enty of family campouts, Day outings with tons of kids friends etc. Our mechanic says it has a timing chain and thats why its a tank. We just keep the oil changed and it keeps going. A friend had one that was totaled in a rear end hi speed collision and it held up well too. We love ours and are on the fence about getting rid of it but it won't seat 8 :-( and we are fixing to have another kid."

"I was third owner of my MPV and it drives and runs great. I am really pleased with the heater, however, the AC runs a little on the warm side for my liking. Even at 185,000 miles, runs to anywhere I want to go without any problems."

Pros: "great car"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I have owned this van since 2005. I bought it used with 25,000 miles in great condition. I have three boys and we have gone all over with this van. The van runs great with a few minor things to be replaced.I wish mazda didn't stop making this van I definitely would have bought another one. I now have 145,000 miles and all good.Just the right rear door handle broke off but I think this is the only flaw it has."
