2002 Mazda Millenia Premium 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Can be a great value as a used car, so definitely worth a look for the nice interior design & materials, smooth ride, and upscale, if somewhat generic, Japanese sedan look. However, poor interior packaging makes this somewhat large sedan small on the inside (uncomfortable to drive w/knees splayed out--I'm 6'3"). Also, they have harsh shifting auto trannies with poor reliability, and other reliability issues as well. 170hp base engine is pretty weak. Fuel economy for a sedan is only 23mpg mixed city/hwy, and worst of all, requires premium fuel! If the tranny was smooth, there was another few inches of driver legroom, and my check engine light would turn off...then I'd probably love it!

Favorite Features

great used value, clean, generic, but upscale design, nice interior, smooth ride, good brakes, nice handling

Suggested Improvements

better interior packaging--seems this car wasn't designed to fit Americans. Put an auto tranny in it that doesn't grenade at 60k and shifts seamlessly (how about a GM tranny?) make it run on regular fuel. Modern Mazda's are much better overall.
