Mine is L version which I bought with 8000 miles in '97 and it currently has 190,000 miles. The car is very reliable and still my daily driver (13 years!). Only performed scheduled maintenance. The paint faded and the driver's leather seat ripped but other than that it runs really well. Even the A/C is still cold.
The head gasket went out at 52K miles,
warrenty thru 50K, so no help from
Mazda. Then keys lost, Mazda had the

I purchased used with 40,000 miles. At
52,000 miles the head gasket blew and
cost $1300 to repair. Now at 112,000
the trans is out and it will cost $2500
to repair. Other than these big ticket
items, I have also had to replace 2 CV
joints. Many good aspects, but buyers
I purchased my 1995 millenia in May of
2002. I got the car for $5,200. What

car this year. (My job as a traveling
salesman really packs on the miles).
The Milenia has been outstanding. On
the freeway it delivers a true luxury
ride, while maintaining an "athletic"
stance on the road. This is a fairly
big car that never feels like a
The car does not have the power of a
Maxima (especially not the 2.5 liter
version). The reliability of a Camery
is probably superior. For the money
though, you absolutely can't go wrong
with a Millenia.
