    About Mazda MPV


    The Mazda MPV is a minivan that first set sail at the tail-end of the 1980s and went on to become one of the Japanese automaker's most consistent vehicles on the roster. The late ‘80s/early ‘90s brought about the popularity of the minivan and car companies kept trying to get a leg-up on one another. Mazda distinguished the MPV from its competitors thanks to the model's "smallish" size (although still capable of seating up to seven passengers) and its available all-wheel drive. Under the hood was a 2.6L four-cylinder engine good for approximately 120 horsepower paired to either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic. However, a bolder 3.0L V6 (150 hp) could be had, as well. In 1992, seating increased to eight passengers and the manual transmission was dropped from the lineup. By 1995, the V6 engine configuration took over as standard. During its first generation, the Mazda MPV also became one of the very first minivans on the road to feature four doors.

    When the second generation of the Mazda MPV was released for the 1999 model year, it sported a shortened wheelbase and was constructed off of a front-wheel drive platform (LW). The most notable change to the MPV was the vehicle's lack of four-wheel drive, which Mazda discontinued. But a bevy of updates to the MPV were ordered for the redesign in order to make up for it. It showed off dual sliding-doors, a foldable third-row seat, multi-directional second-row captain's chairs, and power windows. The new powertrain consisted of a 2.5L V6 which got credit for producing up to 170 horsepower along with 165 pounds-per-foot of torque directed through a four-speed automatic transmission.

    2002 welcomed in another update, as the engine was bolstered to a 3.0L V6 configuration capable of 200 horsepower mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. 17" alloy wheels, traction control, an improved braking system, and a new suspension were also among the changes. However, the DX trim was dropped from the lineup, as the LX and ES were left as the two remaining trim levels. A year later, the base trim became the LX-SV and showcased a wide list of options such as a rear-entertainment center with DVD. In 2004, the front-end of the MPV was given a fresher and four-wheel disc brakes as well as a rear air conditioner were added to the model as standard. Following the 2006 model year, the Mazda MPV was pulled from the North American market. Despite no longer being in production for US car buyers, the Mazda MPV is still a visible presence on the road, especially due to its reputation for comfort and reliable Mazda parts.

    There is a long list of minivans that have come and gone over the years without having made even the slightest impact. We know who they are. The Mazda MPV is not one of them. Still a factor on the street, the MPV is credited with being named the most fashionable ride in its class by most major auto magazines and that is not a coincidence. Just look at it!

    Mazda MPV: the Seatbelt Lawsuit
    Mazda MPV: the Seatbelt Lawsuit

    Mazda will be sued, because a woman died wearing a seatbelt across her lap while riding 1993 Mazda MPV minivan. According to Autoguide, the High Court ruled the lawsuit to go ahead. The woman's family insists on suing Mazda Motor of America Inc. since 1993 Mazda MPV minivan featured only lap seatbelts (without shoulder belts) in the middle seat of the van's second row. A woman, whose surname is Williamson, has died in a 2002 accident and her family claims that her body was jackknifed with the lap belt what caused mortal internal injuries.

    The Williamsons want the court to adjudge that Mazda was inadvertent for not installing the lap-and-shoulder belts, while the car company states that federal regulators actually gave an option of putting either shoulder-and-lap or lap seatbelts in the middle seats of a van.

    California Courts disregarded the Williamson case, taking into consideration the evidence from a 2000 decision, where Honda was the defendant in case of installing airbags in relation to automobile injuries. Both cases were led by Justice Stephen G. Breyer and even though he disagreed that cases were similar, airbags regulations didn't lead to filing of injury suits, while in the matter of seat belts regulators gave an order to apply a standard restraint system for all seats, convincing that it would be a result of increased safety. At last, the Government adjusted the Supreme Court to avert the 2000 hearing of Geiger versus Honda, having allowed the Williamson's case to go on.
