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


Review

Bought my Millenia one year ago and
still loving it! Got a fantastic deal
on it, only regret is that I did not
upgrade to the "S". My husband wanted
a Maxima, but I had spotted the
Millenia a couple of years ago and had
my eye on it. Finally decided to get
it when we heard it was being
discontinued. Expect to keep it for
many years. We always get compliments
on what a sharp-looking car it is, and
people are always amazed at the
incredible interior once they step
inside.


Best Features

Heated seats!! The lighted odometer controls are clear and easy to read, even during the day. Car is very comfortable and we love the steering wheel controls for the radio and cruise.


Worst Features

More power, legroom, and the jerky shifting of the automatic engine definitely needs to be addressed.

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


Review

We went to the dealer prepared to buy
the Mazda 6. While browsing the
inventory my wife spotted this Millenia
among the other cars. It was love at
first sight. Great looking car compared
to the 6's.
Test drive was the kicker and huge
price reduction from sticker ($8k).


Best Features

Sweet Supercharged Miller Cycle Engine


Worst Features

Transmission, Smoother shifts up and down. Shifts also seem to be undecided and sometimes at wrong intervals! More front seat leg room!

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


Review

Almost every hot option in other cars
was standard on this car. Can NOT be
beaten for the money. Without a
doubt, my favorite car I have owned!


Best Features

Leather Interior Climate Control Power Point in the center console where it belongs!!!!!


Worst Features

Slightly more leg room for those of us who are over 6'2" would be appreciated, but I've given up on car makers thinking of us tall folks.

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


Review

I was looking for a sedan for over six
months, and my searches narrowed down
to two vehicles: Maxima and Millenia.
Even that took me a while to choose:
powerful engine or smooth ride of
better-looking car. I am happy with my
purchase, even it is not a "most
recommended" car. Standard features can
be compared only to Maxima's GLE. Plus
Millenia is a better-looking car
(Maxima’s rear end is ugly even on '02
models with spoiler). For the money I
paid for used '02 Millenia I could not
get even ‘02 Maxima GXE. The Millenia
drives smoother than the Maxima.
However, if you prefer power over the
comfort of a nice car, go with Maxima.


Best Features

Smooth ride, attractive looking inside and outside, impressive built quality, the 2,5L engine is not so underpowered as many people state, and it is quieter than the famous Maxima's engine, nice looking instrument panel and the entire dashboard.


Worst Features

Some road noise (mostly because of sporty high performance Michelin tires), transmission is not as smooth as on Maxima.

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


Review

Great deal on price. Went to buy a
626, came home with a Millenia. One of
the most visually appealing sedans on
the road. Well proportioned look. Am
told reliability will be good. Would
be concerned about depreciation, but
expect to keep it several years. My
prior Mazda was a very good vehicle. I
am generally satisfied. Too bad it is
discontinued.


Best Features

Styling. Seats. Suspension. Middle visor. Sound system.


Worst Features

Underpowered. Rough shifting, especially at city speeds. Need more head/leg room.
