2001 Mazda Millenia Premium 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)
It's a shame Mazda stopped building the Millenia. I bought mine used and have put nearly 130,000 miles on it. It has given me no problems at all other than a Check Engine light that seems to think there's a problem. The drive is very satisfying; think of the Millenia as a big Miata. The ride is smooth and quiet and it is generally a very comfortable car. The interior is classy and it comes without the gimmicks of high-end technology. Storage space is good with enough cup holders for everybody and a wide trunk. A folding rear seat would be nice. Mazda did not put enough effort into marketing the Millenia and giving it a competitive price tag. I think it would have been a very successful car.
Sexy profile, sporty handling, smooth ride, classy interior, comfortable cruiser even with 4 adults. Positive comments all around.
Rough transmission, add more power and a folding rear seat. Two things that hurt Millenia's sales were a high price tag and a lack of a marketing campaign.
