2002 Mazda MPV

Trim: LX

We like it
We like our '02 MPV because it has many premium features such as power sliding doors with remote open. We have young kids and they would not be able to open the sliding doors, but a push of a button and they can get in and out by themselves. Or we can use the remote to open the doors for them. They also like have the power roll-down windows in the sliding doors. Its smaller than most minivans which makes it easier to maneuver and park and in my opinion it is safer than vans like the Odyssey in the sense that there is better visibility when driving and backing up. Suspension is a bit poor and road noise it higher than in other vans. When you consider the price differential the Mazda is a better value in our opinion. Rust is an issue, be sure to have it oil-sprayed. We are ready to replace our '02 and are looking at the 06' MPV, we sure wish Mazda Canada would import the later model MPVs that are sold in Japan. Mazda 5 just won't cut it for our needs.

2006 Mazda MPV

by techstuff on 10-12-2012
last of the Mazda vans
We have owned three Mazda vehicles including two used MPV vans. This is the only Mazda to offer six seat belts and the last model year for the MPV compact van design (replaced by the smaller Mazda 5).

MPV is spacious inside, with lots of leg and luggage room, but it's shorter than most vans outside, so it parks like a car.

Recommended.

2002 Mazda MPV

Trim: DX

Wonderful Mazda MPV minivan


Every time I am in my MAZDA MPV 2002, I enjoy it even more! It has turned out to be a WONDERFUL choice for us!

One of the biggest pluses is the easily configured second- and third-row seating. I am happy to report that they actually DO
move around easily.
To change from a two passenger bench to two captains chairs you just pull a release lever and the right hand seat slides. You can also remove both seats if you needed the cargo room.

When the third seat is upright, there is a storage space in the recessed cargo well. That well is where the seat is folded into when you fold it down flat for more space. Again, this is very easily done.

Another thing that I really like is the Power roll down windows on the sliding doors! This is exclusive to the MAZDA MPV and so much better than just being able to either open them a crack or not at all! You can also open and close these doors with a button to the left of the steering wheel.

It has a wonderful sound system with a AM/FM/cassette/CD with a digital clock. There are speakers throughout the van and steering wheel mounted audio controls
