This is my 2nd Millenia 1995. 1st the
standard engine. Lacked power, shifting
unimpressive. Traded it for the S
version. More power, but shifting still
unimpressive. Maintenance & repairs
very expensive. 60K miles maintenance
at Mazda dealer $1600 "due to the
special engine". Front shock absorbers
$700. I paid $1200 for 1st ext.
warranty, repairs exceeded $2500 by the
time it expired. It does not break down
often, but when it does, it's costly.
CHECK ENGINE light (Oxigen Sensors: 4
instead of 2)$600. Dashboard
display that shows A/C settings:
over $800. Replacing a $4 part
somewhere in there: $260 in labor.
Price was the reason why I bought them
used in 1998 at Carmax... They were
about $16K and $18K respectively,
versus the Acura Legend sedan or TL
(can't remember which one) at $22K.
