Yogi02:joker97: Yes I've considered the mpv, but didn't know much about its reliability
I have not had a single issue and the fact that it is based on the Mazda 6 which is one of the most reliable cars out there.
I am really picky about the cars I purchase and there is a lot more of them out there now since I bought mine.
Highly recommend taking one for a drive - Mine has the factory 18" alloys and handles quite well
Stay right away from the Pre 2005 old shape ones, completely different car.
+1 for the 06+ MPV - very good car - the 2.3l is zippy and economical - the 2 seats in the middle have a gap between them make the back seats easily accessible.
They've got power doors both sides, reversing camera, Bluetooth, good headroom for those in the back.
Get the 23c rather than the 23t (t for turbo)
