Review of the 2002 Mazda Millenia

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

  • Safety
  • Pros

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

  • Cons

    Cramped interior, weak base engine, lack of brand cache, floaty highway ride, aging platform.

  • What's New for 2002

    Now that the brilliant 6 sport sedan has been approved for production, the Millenia's days are numbered. Understandably, changes for 2002 barely register on the Richter scale. Are you ready for this? An auto-dimming mirror with compass is standard, and Snow White Pearl paint is changed to Snow Flake White Pearl paint. You can also get a Special Edition with a chrome-finished front grille, a black exterior and a black-and-ivory interior with titanium trim.

2002 mazda mellinia s

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Mazda Millenia S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

I bought the car new in 2002 & still have it with 75000.00 miles. It is a wonderful car with beautiful a design. I have had no problems at all with this car . Although newer cars have a lot more gadgets , I am satisfied with what i have . It has a good power & the gas mile is OK for the amount of driving i do.Because of this car I will definitely consider a Mazda if I decide to buy another vehicle although a hatch would make more sense.

Expensive to fix and maintain

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Mazda Millenia S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

Just purchased this car for college aged daughter. Purchased from a private party in a state that does not require emission inspections (Ohio). Car drove like a dream; ext. and int. were in great shape for a 10 yr. old car. It had a reasonable amount of mileage (121,000). The owner mentioned the check engine light was on but their mechanic could'nt diagnose the problem. Needless to say, after purchasing the car, taking it to Pa for inspection...it failed miserably! $2300.00 later! change the catalytic converters; fix broken seal on transmission; change a light bulb (requires front bumper to be removed!). Pretty car....but way too expensive to maintain! Buy only if you have $$$ to fix.

Great car!

Vehicle: 2002 Mazda Millenia S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

I bought this car used - 2 years old with 26,000 miles. I've now had it for 6 years and have had only tires and brakes needing replacement. It's been a great car and I love driving it. Just wish it was a bit better on mileage, but can't complain, 'cause it really gets up and goes!

S model problems

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Mazda Millenia S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

I've had my S since 2002, always had basic maintenance done. It has 95000 anad is due for Timing belt change to the tune of $2500. Valve covers leaking into cylinders, misfiring and not burning all gas which might be hurting the cat converter. Might need ignition coils, clogged ECG valve. This car was fine until now and now its going to cost over $3500 or more to get these things fixed. Very expensive car to maintain with higher mileage. Think twice about buying a used S model unless you have deep pockets.




One nice car

Vehicle: 2002 Mazda Millenia S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

This is one nice car! If it was not so unique and sharp I would buy a V6 Fusion or Mazda 6 with this 6 cyl engine in heartbeat.

At six years & 80k

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Mazda Millenia S 4dr Sedan (2.3L 6cyl S/C 4A)

Bought brand new for $25K after owning 2 brand new Accords. This car still turns my head in a parking lot full of newer models. Very dependable, fun to drive, comfortable on long trips. Cost to replace timing belt is doubled due to the supercharger belt. Love to hear that compressor sing, though. This baby really scoots with the Miller Cycle engine and scroll supercharger, even if it does require premium gas. The alloy wheels have coroded on the inside resulting in loss of air pressure in tires and excessive wear. Paint on side view mirrors has worn off and auto-dimming rear view mirror has worn out. Other than that, it has been a wonderful ride.
