Purchased this car from the showroom - Brand new it looked inviting, but as it turned out, everything that could go wrong...went wrong - I had to have constant expensive repairs - Right after the warranty ran out, I purchased another warranty costing 2,000.00 for another 5 years, but the auto adjustable steering column jammed and none of it was covered - Costs over 600.00 to repair - The engine (problem) light has spent more time being on, than off - Just about everything that you can replace on an engine, had to be replaced - The catalytic converter has to be replaced at a cost of over 2,000.00 again ! - And all this well before the car has 60,000 miles on it - Projected reliability ???

I bought this car used with 120k, drove 2 years and 20k miles before car was totaled by insurance company.
Did well in the accident, no injuries despite driver's side impact.
Fun to drive, sporty, sharp rims, great stereo.
Minor, inexpensive repairs: thermostat, motor mounts and a fuse.
A/C compressor was starting to go out.
Visor mirror and one vent cover came unglued otherwise interior looked almost new.
Took on lots of highway trips for work and did great at high speeds, comfortable on long drives.
Adjustable seats and steering wheel give a good custom fit for the driver.
My mechanic said it was a great car, I would buy another mazda in a heartbeat.
Got about 18/24 mpg.

Mazda has strengthened the Millenia's body structure to improve torsional rigidity 30 percent. Combined with a new rear stabilizer bar and a larger front stabilizer bar, improved handling is the result. Visually, the car should be more appealing thanks to new front and rear styling. The interior has been updated significantly, as well. Hardware changes include larger disc brakes, a revised ABS system and standard side airbags for both models.
