I purchased the 02 Millenia S about a year ago with 44K miles on the odometer. It now has nearly 62K and I am always asked when and where I bought my new car. That speaks very well of the 6 year old styling and my and the previous ower's care. Though not the fastest car I have ever owned, the Miller cycle 4 cylinder is above average in performance and still is reasonably economical (combined city and highway mileage 25mpg). It drives tightly on rural roads, tightly holds 180 degree exit and entry interstate ramps, but is perfectly at home cruising on the interstate or in city traffic and parking situations.
The front seats are wonderfully supportive and comfortable even on long road trips. The instrument panel layout is so intuitive and well presented that everything just seems to be where it should be. All gauges and accessories can be read at a glance or turned on and off in the with a quick touch. The audio (which is a Bose system and excellent) and cruise control buttons, mounted on the steering wheel, took me about a minute to master and memorize.
The rear seating is tight for 6 footers, but my 16 year old daughter and her basketball/volleyball friends fit just fine. Their gear is stored in the surprisingly large trunk with a very low liftover height.
I have have no repairs to date and only standard maintence of oil and tires. The tires I replaced at 46K miles because I was going an extended trip (about 2,000 miles) and the one thing that bugged me, excessive road noise, was solved. The M&S tires suggested by my tire shop not only quieted the interior, but have helped to make this an adequate snow and ice vehicle here in northeastern Wisconsin.
This is one of the favorite vehicles I have owned (I have owned over 50 vehicles) and this includes Audi's, Cadillacs, Saabs, Volvos, Chevrolets, Fords, Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles and Chryslers.
I do have a major service due and am unsure of the cost, but this is an excellent used car value and a wonderful daily driver.
