This car has provided me with economical operation, with power to spare.  Maintenance, other than required by Mazda at the recommended intervals has been negligible.  People ask me if the car is new even though it is a 2002 model.  Its styling is timeless.  The car is responsive to minimal inputs making it safe to drive.  Visibility is aplenty.  There is no need to turn your head, just look in the mirrors and you know where you are in traffic.  It is comfortable during in-town commutes or for extensive road trips; 500 miles/day or more.  One only has to adjust the power seat(s) if you become the least bit uncomfortable.  Fuel Economy is appropriate for the car's weight and horsepower: 21 to 28mpg.  I only wish it used regular fuel.  


It is lacking in rear seat leg room, even with average size people in the front seat.  I am 5'9" with short legs and a long torso, and it is uncomfortable for anyone of average size in the back seat!  While there is plenty of horizontal space in the trunk, anything taller than 22" is hard to place in the trunk, i.e. boxes.  


I Love The Car. I Am A Mazda Kind Of Guy, Having Owned Over Two Dozen In The Last Thirty Years. — How do I like this car? If they still made it, I would buy another. However, I will look for one with the lowest mileage I can find and maintenance history when I replace this. It might be a while though, it only has 137,000 miles at present. I will give this one to my granddaughter next year when she becomes a Senior in High School as a graduation present.

Very comfortable car to drive.


Lack of after-market alternatives.


Great Car — Performance -- The braking feels sturdy and I like the handling feels confident. While driving the vehicle feels like it should have a more powerful engine. Build Quality -- Overall I like the build quality. There are certain issues that it seems like everybody has had. Such as the timing belt issue but in general Millenia is a very reliable car and does not take any more work than any average car. I don't like having to replace the secondary lights. The little round bulb in the headlight assembly is hard to find and changing the fog lights is a pain. But in general... excellent car.

I love all the bells n whistles.


Parts are expensive and dealers are dumb!


Love My Mazda!! — Great car. Parts are expensive, but I still like it. Mazda dealers are likely to give you the run around and probably wont find the problem, but if u are mechanically inclined there are very helpful Mazda forums with very resourceful people.
