2002 Mazda Millenia Premium 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)
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.
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
Some road noise (mostly because of
sporty high performance Michelin
tires), transmission is not as smooth
as on Maxima.
