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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

standard side airbags,traction control, and abs.


Suggested Improvements

A 5 speed transmission (Automatic or Manual.) would have been nice. Intercoolers that are not in the engine compartment

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Solid mechanicals; lovely looks; comfortable. NO extra junk that breaks.


Suggested Improvements

Clock display difficult to read (glare), funky climate control, two-toned interior could be a bit nicer.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Bose stereo is great. Six disk in dash changer is easy to use. It has the 9 speakers and plenty of boost. Mazda has done a great job of keeping outside noise out so you can enjoy some tunes on the road.


Suggested Improvements

On the stearing wheel, the middle button to cancel the cruise control and select the radio options should be more like the other two. Make the whole button useful. Also adding memory position to the seat for muliple driver would be nice.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Miller S engine


Suggested Improvements

Higher end look for the interior Better Leather on Seats

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Zoom-Zoom handling balanced with luxurious ride. Miller-cylce engine - so smooth and quiet with tons of power. Leather on the seats is much better quality than Honda/Acura leather.


Suggested Improvements

Bose stereo sounds great, but doesn't work and play well with others. Can't upgrade to MP3 player without ripping out all the Bose speakers and wiring. The outside temperature reading only goes up to 99. Bring back the Millenia and the Miller-cycle engine!
