Which used Mazda MPV MPV should I buy?

The MPV was originally offered with just one engine - a 120bhp 2.0-litre petrol. This was replaced with a 139bhp 2.3-litre unit in May 2002, and a 134bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel joined the range at the same time.

The diesel is undoubtedly the pick of the bunch, because it's refined and strong. By contrast, the petrols need to be worked hard to encourage any useful effort out of them, and they get wheezy when they are.
