Decent Car for the Money

by from Des Moines, IA on May 3, 2011

I've owned my Mazda Millenia since 2004 when I bought it used. It's a 2001 model. It had 37,000 miles and now it has 127,000 miles, mostly driving 18 miles each way back and forth to work. At about 9...
I've owned my Mazda Millenia since 2004 when I bought it used. It's a 2001 model. It had 37,000 miles and now it has 127,000 miles, mostly driving 18 miles each way back and forth to work. At about 90,000 I had to get the transmission rebuilt which was a real bummer. . .cost $2K. However, aside from that speedbump the car has been remarkably reliable--a true workhorse for daily commutes. Even in our brutal Iowa winters the car performed really well with just the front wheel drive and decent tires. The handling is fairly straightforward and it's obvious the car was not built for aggressive driving but as a highway cruiser it is quiet, smooth and has good visibility all around. The creature comforts are reasonable although the seat heaters are weak. The engine power is lacking somewhat but I like the 4-wheel disc brakes. Buy with relative confidence. I think I'll keep mine until the wheels fall off which should be a quite a while yet.

Drove it off the lot in 2002 - over 155,000 miles, very good car in very good condition. Just got bumped, OK slammed the other day in the back and the trunk is now in the back seat. Looking to replace this wonderful, efficient, low maintenance, reliable, good car. One of the best I have ever owned.

I've owned my millenia s for one year now and am looking to trade it in. Over all it is a good vehicle, but you have to have enough money to keep it up. Style wise, the car is excellent. Gas mileage is great for a supercharged v6. I drive about 70 miles a day on the highway and get around 29 mpg. The downside is that the car needs premium gas. In the year I've owned it I've had to do a bit of work to it but the miller cycle engine has had no issues. Dispite high miles, the car still has a decently smooth ride and runs very smoothly. The sound system included is great. Overall this would be a good car to own, as long as you can afford to keep up the mechanical work.

Wish they were still making them!

by from on May 13, 2012

The Millenia has been a great car and still looks and runs well with 158K miles. Mazda cars are a good value, but there is nothing in this class in ther current product line. Too bad, I'd buy another!

This car looks like a lexus on the inside. Preforms like a 02 altima 2.5 It looks like an Infiniti. Handels like a new mazda 6 speed on some curves. Over all it's better than a honda or camry v-6. Mazda is missing out on the luxury cars market. If mazda droped the base engine and sold the car for the base price. Add xenon lights and nav system. Then acura tl and infiniti i 35 lexus es camrey v-6 accord v-6 maxima would be in for a good run.

Overall this MilleniaS with the Miller engine is outstanding. Well equipped with great performance and good mileage. II've owned three Millenia and would buy another if they would have continued to make them beyond 2002.
