Purchased this car from the showroom - Brand new it looked inviting, but as it turned out, everything that could go wrong...went wrong - I had to have constant expensive repairs - Right after the warranty ran out, I purchased another warranty costing 2,000.00 for another 5 years, but the auto adjustable steering column jammed and none of it was covered - Costs over 600.00 to repair - The engine (problem) light has spent more time being on, than off - Just about everything that you can replace on an engine, had to be replaced - The catalytic converter has to be replaced at a cost of over 2,000.00 again ! - And all this well before the car has 60,000 miles on it - Projected reliability ???
I bought this car used with 120k, drove 2 years and 20k miles before car was totaled by insurance company.
Did well in the accident, no injuries despite driver's side impact.
Fun to drive, sporty, sharp rims, great stereo.
Minor, inexpensive repairs: thermostat, motor mounts and a fuse.
A/C compressor was starting to go out.
Visor mirror and one vent cover came unglued otherwise interior looked almost new.
Took on lots of highway trips for work and did great at high speeds, comfortable on long drives.
Adjustable seats and steering wheel give a good custom fit for the driver.
My mechanic said it was a great car, I would buy another mazda in a heartbeat.
Got about 18/24 mpg.
After owning a Lexus for the last 5
years, I decided to try something
different to lower car payments. I've
had the Millinea for a couple of
weeks now and have come to some
conclusions. The styling of the car is
nice outside and in. I like the
dashboard, it's layed out nice. The
ride is quiet and smooth. The
engine seems to hesitate when you
first step on the gas, which I find
annoying. The latch covers in the
back for the child safety seats keep
popping open. If I could do it all over
again, I would opt for an Acura or
back to another Lexus.
