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.
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.
