This is s very reliable, full of space, smooth ride, dvd player for kids to watch movies, the rules of dressing so this allows the third row to come out making it very roomy for barbecuing long road trips, moving, going to football games. or whatever else

I really like my MPV van to drive, to carry 7 people comfortably, to haul bulky / large items. It had relatively little problems, which was replacing all 6 coils over a 8 year period. Not bad considering it now has 130,000 miles and is 14 years old!

The most important thing others should know about my car is that it is a great family car that is large enough to carry everything a small family needs.

My car is perfect for my current needs. It is large enough to carry lots of stuff, but small enough that I do not feel like I am driving a bus. I do wish that it had better gas mileage as it does not get the best mph.

Consequence:

Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
03V206
Summary:
On certain minivans and passenger vehicles, the socket holder in the fog lights is installed in the lamp casing using pressure. During operation of the fog light, the heat from the bulb can expand the socket holder. The expansion can force the socket holder rearward. After repeatedly being subject to this expansion, if the fog light is also subjected to vibration during vehicle operation, the socket holder with the bulb holder and the wiring harness may separate from the fog light casing. Should this occur, the bulb socket and the harness can drop inside the bumper, and the heat generated by the bulb can cause the bumper to burn.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will install a spring to prevent the socket holder from separating from the lamp case. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began July 7, 2003. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.
