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


Review

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.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Plenty of leg room. All the fun luxury gadgets. Large trunk.


Suggested Improvements

Too expensive to fix...

Review

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!

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Like the super charger and extra boost. Styling seems timeless.


Suggested Improvements

More comfortable seats, dependable fuel door.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Quality and exterior appearance.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage is good on highway at close to 30 on long trips but only about 17-18 running around (but I likely drive it a little harder than most).

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Auto tilt steering wheel. Excellent Bose sound system. Unique Miller Cycle supercharged engine. Heated seats, climate control. Not many on the road and still stylish after 6 years. Quality built in Japan.


Suggested Improvements

No longer made.

Review

I love the look of my car I think it is a very classy looking car. Mine is black and looks great when it is clean and polished. I obviously haven't had it very long but have always liked the look of these cars.


Favorite Features

The leather seats, sunroof/moonroof, 6-disc changer, drink holders in the back seat.


Suggested Improvements

None so far it is a great car. My family thinks it needs more drink holders.

Review

I leased this car brand new and after the lease I had to buy it. It's a great car, (good going Mazda). It has 47,xxx miles and all I've had to do is change the oil and buy new brakes. Of course I buy a lot of extras just to assure its performance. Usually Mazda has bad transmissions but the Millenia S proved me wrong. It's a smart choice for a used car. When this one dies I'm going to look for another one with low miles.


Favorite Features

I love the supercharged v6, the Bose stereo system is awesome, the transmission shifts very smooth, and it handles great for a luxury car.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy and a navigation system.

Review

Got a good end of production deal on the Millenia - 5k rebate w/the dealer taking another 3k off sticker. Great looking car with lots of room. The ride is stiff with the performance tires. Very wide turning radius. The vehicle sits low so it's not e-z to get out of.


Favorite Features

It's fast!


Suggested Improvements

Better quality leather, quieter cd changer, trip computer, outside temp gauge that goes over 100 degrees. Trunk hinges can kill your groceries

Review

I have owned this car for 2 1/2 years, and I am generally pleased. It rides well, has a luxurious feel, and good handling. It is also very safe. The car was slammed into by another vehicle, and I was fully protected. Premium gas is a bit steep, but mileage is good. Very nice family car for the money. I purchased this rather than a Honda Accord, and I am glad I did.


Favorite Features

Heated seats, leather seats, comfortable ride, solid feel


Suggested Improvements

Car is no longer manufactured.
