2003 Mazda MPVVisitor, Buffalo, NY, October 11, 2010 18:29I like to drive this car, been driving it for about 5 years. But it has some serious (idiotic) design problems: -Transmission had to be completely replaced at 100,000Km. -Alternator is BELOW the car, I think front axle needs to be removed in order to remove alternator, sludge gets there easy. -Oxygen sensors 4x, chronic problem - one of them is extremely difficult to replace. Generating engine trouble warnings on dashboard. -Rear heater - pipes under car, originally made of steel, will rust out in few years - cause cooling liquid leak > engine overheating - there is no indication other then temperature gauge needle, easy to miss. -Spare tire attached to bottom of the car by little crane, will rust out in few years, becoming unusable. -Front light-left - bulb is very difficult to replace. Battery needs to be removed first etc -Steering, vibration from road is felt - feels like unbalanced tires, but body is not vibrating only steering wheel. Good part - I still like the drive (except the steering vibrations), never have had problems with engine, AC, electrical, electronics, brakes.
