2001 Mazda Millenia Premium 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)
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.
Stereo, leather, rims, sunroof, comfortable seats (fully adjustable up/down and back and forth), reliable, safe.
Interior heating/cooling controls are a little counter-intuitive.
Car could be higher off the ground- have to go very, very slow over bumps and it is not fun in rain storms with lots of standing water.
