Here is the truth about this car: 1. Consumes large amounts of fuel, if you're thinking of driving this car on a daily basis then make sure you have loads of money for the fuel. 2. The car is extremely heavy, there is no pick up at all. Due to the vehicle's weight this has resulted in the miller cycle engine having to work harder to supply energy and that results in greater gas consumption. 3. Motor oil consumption is just ridiculous. The car drains large amounts of motor oil and I find myself replacing it on a weekly basis, which is just ridiculous. Overall I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone, its expensive to maintain and the resale value is nothing but laughable.
And now, the REAL truth:
Your car should get about 28 mpg.
Your car weighs less than 3500lbs. (about 400lbs. LESS than a new Camaro).
With a drag coefficient of just 0.29 it's one of the slipperiest production cars ever made.
Your car should do 0-60 in 7.5 seconds.
Your car shouldn't consume more than a quart of oil every 5000lbs.
Your car has a WORN OUT ENGINE.
Nobody wants to read the performance specs of someone's WORN OUT car.
You should write that your car?s engine wore out by X number of miles, and perhaps that you?ve found it expensive to maintain.
You should not falsely imply that ALL Mazda Millenias are heavy, slow, get poor mileage and drink oil.
