Review of the 2001 Mazda Millenia

  • Not really a luxury car, and not really a sports sedan, Millenia is past its expiration date.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Improved exterior styling and interior design, supercharged Millenia S engine, competitive price.

  • Cons

    Cramped interior, no navigation system available, aging platform.

  • What's New for 2001

    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.

An excellent car

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mazda Millenia S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

Other than the timing belt and IAC valve I have not had any problems with this car.It has a lot of pep for a tiny 2.3L V6,enough to entertain me on a boring day.




Outstanding, understated, and overlooked

Vehicle: 2001 Mazda Millenia S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

I've owned the Mazda Millenia S, which I purchased from a dealer off lease return for several years now. I've always thought that the car was underappreciated for its lovely styling. Okay, it's not a head turner, but I think it is one of the more attractive cars out there. It is completely rock solid. Spartan compared to say Lexus, but has everything I need/want. Too bad they quit making this lovely car.




Under valued

Vehicle: 2001 Mazda Millenia S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

I think Mazda should really consider re-making the MMS! I've ave. btwn 22 and 28mpg. It's grt on the highway and has plnty of pep when you need it. The leather dsn't get too warm when the sun beats on it all day. Recently had the opp to take a long ride w/ 4 adults and 1 child. We had plenty of room inside for of us. Lumbar sppt is a nice add on during long trips. I don't inticipate using the seat wrmers too much here in So. Cal. but the car is complete to say the least. Yes it would be nice to have a navigation system but for those on the go, Garmin 2620 is far better than factory installed ones I've come accross and cost much less.




Millenia strong performance/price ration

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mazda Millenia S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

The Mazda Millenia offers excellent value for the price. It is comfortable, handles well and has good acceleration. The Miller S engine is very smooth with good top end power. The interior is well designed with easy to read guages and all controls within a comfortable distance to the driver. The seats are a little low but still comfortable even on long trips. Mazda could have designed the interior with more wood grain and higher quality leather to better compare to other luxury cars like Lexus or BMW. Overall I am extremely happy and enjoy the Millenia very much. I have not had one mechanical or quality issue.




Well-balanced between ride and handling

Vehicle: 2001 Mazda Millenia S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

I have owned 2 Mazda 626s and 2 Mazda MPVs. My last 626 was totalled, so I decided to move up to a Millenia. I went and test drove one and knew right away it was the car I wanted. I found an "S" with the Miller-cycle engine. What a great engine! Smooth and quiet, yet very responsive. This car has a perfect balance between smooth, luxurious ride and road feel. Everything about the car says quality. The fit and finish is outstanding. The Miller-cycle engine should be an option for all of their vehicles that have V-6 engines. I have owned many Japanese and American cars. In my opinion for price and quality Mazda beats them all.




A rare car worthy of

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mazda Millenia S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

I purchased my 2001 Mazda Millenia in 2002 brand new as a left over. The dealership was discounting this car $10,000 off the sticker price of $35,000 (sticker included chrome wheels, 4 seasons package, heated seats, and bose in dash 5 cd system). This car has been an excellent value to me. I really enjoy and look forward to driving it
