My 5 year old Millenia still drives
like a luxury car. I bought it for its
reliability and gorgeous exterior. The
leather grade is rather cheap. The
interior is tight and front seats are
not comfortable for tall adults. The
workmanship and fitting are flimsy. My
moon roof stops working (not fuse-
related). If you live in the
DC/Virginia area, I would not recommend
buying your car from Brown's Mazda.
They drop you like a ball once your car
leaves their lot. The acceleration on
this car sucks. I would get the S
version if you love the shape and the
supple ride. My next car would likely
be a Lexus, Volvo, Mercedes, or a BMW -
definitely not sold by Brown's car
The Mazda Millenia S is the poor man's
5 Series BMW. I bought mine used with
34k on it--someone else ate the
depreciation..I got great value. The
handling is agile, a real driver's car,
yet ride quality is high. The engine is
responsive, smooth, quick. Mechanically
solid, and loaded with features,
including traction control, ABS.
The engineers and builders paid
attention to detail.
I find the car comfortable, even on
long trips; maintenance has been
P1195 EGR BOOST SENSOR, this will kill
your pickup and gas mileage.
engine makes noise after 100,000 to
solve put 2 quarts of karosene and
idle it for 5 minutes, change oil and
filter, use SAE30 the noise is gone
for 20000 miles.
Discontinued because of bad rep. after
FORD bought MAZDA, their vehicles went
down the toilet. I remember my 1984
626 ran over 300,000 miles, you could
never find that now !!!!!
Mazda dealers overcharge, dont buy
Rotate tires after every oil change.
I rated the car so high because I sold
it for profit !!!!
My Millenia was purchased for a
seriously reduced price below the
sticker. I thought I had the deal of
the century(millenium??) Once I got
over the terrific sound system and
sexy styling, I was left with a cramped
cabin with few features like cup holders
(only 1 provided),an ashtray, a glove
box with more than a few inches of
space. The transmission always felt
like it was missing gears and spinning
in low speed acceleration. Reliability
was not what Consumer Reports
suggested I could expect.
I bought a 2nd hand millenia. The car
is excellent when it comes to all the
luxury features. The interior is great.
The car is 6 yrs old but still most of
the things seem to be working perfectly
fine. The pick-up is bit of a problem
at low speeds.. may coz of the heavy
weight. The car drives really smooth
and once above 50mph, the pickup
improves a lot. Its very easy to get a
speeding ticket if you are not watching
