My Millenia was purchased for a
seriously reduced price below the
sticker. I thought I had the deal of
the century(millenium??) Once I got
over the terrific sound system and
sexy styling, I was left with a cramped
cabin with few features like cup holders
(only 1 provided),an ashtray, a glove
box with more than a few inches of
space. The transmission always felt
like it was missing gears and spinning
in low speed acceleration. Reliability
was not what Consumer Reports
suggested I could expect.
Bose stereo, great radio antenna pick-
up, traction control for winter travel,
More room for body to relax.
Ashtray/lighter. Bigger glove box
(like one that might handle gloves).
Smoother shifting transmission. More
power for the weight of the car.
I bought a 2nd hand millenia. The car
is excellent when it comes to all the
luxury features. The interior is great.
The car is 6 yrs old but still most of
the things seem to be working perfectly
fine. The pick-up is bit of a problem
at low speeds.. may coz of the heavy
weight. The car drives really smooth
and once above 50mph, the pickup
improves a lot. Its very easy to get a
speeding ticket if you are not watching
1. Bose Music System
2. Dual Heated seats, All 4 ABS breaks,
Traction control.... Very handy
especially if you are driving in heavy
My 5 year old Millenia still drives
like a luxury car. I bought it for its
reliability and gorgeous exterior. The
leather grade is rather cheap. The
interior is tight and front seats are
not comfortable for tall adults. The
workmanship and fitting are flimsy. My
moon roof stops working (not fuse-
related). If you live in the
DC/Virginia area, I would not recommend
buying your car from Brown's Mazda.
They drop you like a ball once your car
leaves their lot. The acceleration on
this car sucks. I would get the S
version if you love the shape and the
supple ride. My next car would likely
be a Lexus, Volvo, Mercedes, or a BMW -
definitely not sold by Brown's car
Exterior, paint, soft door closing,
supple rides, Auto climate control,
Driving column clears for ease of exit.
Bose music system.
Acceleration can definitely be
improved. Car interior can use more
leg and head room as well as overall
interior space. Material quality needs
improvement to be consistent with its
cost. I would seriously consider the
Passat over this car for the same
