Mazda MPV Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda MPV here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Best people mover for $15,000?
The Kia Carnival gets The Tick, every time, in that price range. And with four kids you will find that a proper people-mover gives far more flexibility than an SUV or even a converted van.
Mazda MPV spluttering problem
Intermittent problems can be hard to diagnose, they never seem to happen when the mechanic is present to observe it. But when yours is misbehaving it continues to misbehave for some period of time. Next time take it straight to a mechanic and have them run their diagnostic equipment over it. It would be worth having the injectors cleaned, if they're partly blocked the engine can splutter and misfire, and have all of the engine sensors checked.
THE Kia Carnival is the least reliable, having well-documented problems with head gaskets. I would be drawn towards the Honda because it's well-built, well-designed and more contemporary than the Mazda.
