#189 of 191 2002 MPX ES transmission failure
Oct 16, 2012 (6:48 pm)
Our 2002 MPV ES transmission failed Friday at 107,000 miles. Local quotes are +$3,000 for rebuilding the unit, but after reading all the posts for similar failures, I will probably scrap the van. We live in a rural area and the van hasn't been subjected to stop-and-go traffic, carrying lot of weight, or pulling a trailer. After seeing all the complaints, and experiencing a similar problem, I would not consider purchasing another Mazda product, and will recommend that any friends or family members do the same.

2000 Mazda MPV, gear shift shows both neutral and drive selected, 156,000 miles, just started this week. I will check if clicking overdrive off affects it. Transmission likes to hunt on steep uphill, more so at some speeds than others. Other issues. Oil pan gasket leak replacement did not work and the dealer had to pull the engine up to do it.
Lost a radiator at about 125,000 miles. Both radiator fans and the thermostat housing failed this year.
Have replaced two input actuator controls, which only get used at 3500+ RPM or some such, but DEQ will not pass with an engine check light.
