Good used value, but no Toyonda
By Nick Naylor on


2002 Mazda Millenia Premium 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Good value used...bought the car real cheap, and since it looks like a Lexus and has similar interior craftsmanship it is a great value. Very comfortable seats. Nicely equipped. Good brakes and nice handling. A joy to drive on windy roads. However, not all is well. Transmission needed replacement at 65k miles. Even after replacement, 1-2 shift is somewhat harsh, a seemingly common issue with this car (does not lead to long term confidence). Check Engine light is perennially on (EGR Valve). slight oil and coolant leaks. Previous owner or subpar reliability in general? In general, a comfortable nice car that is not a paragon of Japanese quality.

Best Features

Interior design, comfortable seats, flat handling, very comfortable cruiser.

Worst Features

more driver legroom (I'm 6'4"). Needs a more reliable & smoother powertrain. Premium gas and mediocre fuel economy is a pain...I drive a 4x4 SUV also that in the end, per mile, barely costs more to fuel than the Mazda (5 mpg less, but regular gas).
