You are in the Mazda Millenia
What is this discussion about?
Mazda Millenia, Sedan
#1018 of 4030 Sorry, but that's not accurate

Millenia is cheaper and not smaller than TL. do not compare MSRP, compare how much dealers are selling these two cars for. Millenia S for about $25.5K and TL for about $27.5K. Also, they're about the same size, with TL bigger in front shoulder and knee room and Millenia bigger in the rear head and knee room. I'm 6" and I barely clear the TL's rear headliner; not in the Millenia; front head room about the same. TL is smoother/quiter on the road; while Millenia is more sporty and fun to drive.
BTW, most edmunds's car comparison review almost never favor's Mazdas car anyway. Please take a look at other reviews also; Car&Driver did similar comparison last year and TL is 1st, Millenia 4th (and this is the 2000 Model Millenia without all the improvements they made to the 2001 model while the TL is basically the same except for the exterior design) - Go figure!!!!.
#1019 of 4030 My 2 cents worth

Quote jdigeorgio--"Millenia doesn't make sense over TL"?
Like speedracer3 says--Quote ,"I got my Millenia P for $22K. I could have picked up a Millenia S for about $25K".
As a matter of fact I bought my "01 P for $21680, and the S, which I didn't want because of the supercharger, which adds a lot of mechanical complexity for a gain in power I do not need, would have added about $2500 to that, or about $24200. I doubt you could find a TL anywhere near those ACTUAL REAL WORLD prices.
I now have almost 4000 flawless miles on a great "made in Japan" with almost 100% Japanese content automobile, that rivals any car within $10000 of it's MSRP, both inside and out. The styling has to be as good as any car, bar none. The 626 does have a strong frontal resemblance to it, but the Millenia still comes out on top.
Unless you are planning to drag race and need a hot rod engine, I see no drawback to the 2.5L V-6 at all. It has performed flawlessly, and has all the power needed for anyone not interested in racing it.
Contrary to some posts I have seen, the reliability rating both in Consumer Reports and all online sites, shows the Millenia to be as reliable, or more so than the Camcords. The only exception being the spark plug wires on the '95 model, a $100 item.
I like the TL, but I love my Millenia.
That said, enjoy your wonderful new TL.

My other car is a '95 Olds 88. And while the Olds measures a little larger inside, the Millenia has a far superior open and airy feeling. After driving my Millenia, the Olds makes me feel like I am sitting in an overly upholstered hole. I always avoid the Olds in favor of the Millenia, unless going to a mall or some such place where the car is apt to get door dings etc. The Olds does have a little more rear knee room.
I guess my point is that the measurements don't tell the whole story. The Millenia is simply a joy to drive and to be seen in.

that those TL guys are trying hard to justify the thousands of dollars they overpaid for their Honda Accord...Opps...I mean Acura TL vs. the Mazda Millenia.
#1022 of 4030 FOG LIGHTS WON'T COME ON
Nov 25, 2001 (9:32 am)
I have a 95 L Millenia and the fog lights don't work.I've checked the bulbs and fuse and they are fine.I purchased a fog relay switch from the dealer for 22 bucks and installed it & the still do not work.If anyone knows of a recall or have experienced this;please let me know.
Also about a week ago my transmission went out on my car for the 2nd time in 3yrs but both times my extended warranty paid for the remanufactured tranny.The 1st time I had 63k miles and had only owned it for about 1yr 1/2 (the warranty co. brought this one to the dealer install.This time the same dealer(Jim Ellis in the ATL) used one of there's.Now I have a heavy foot where I'm always using my passing gear daily.I'm not sure it was me or not.By the way I have about 83.3k miles on it now.My extended warranty runs out at 99k or 12/02.I have to hold on this this car right now because I'm buying a home 1/02 at 6.25%.
Thank for listening but if anyone has an answer to my question it would be greatly appreciated.Happy Holidays

I would like to know if I could use the $4000.00 dealer cash For a new 2001 Millenia towards the negative equity of my trade-in.

Dealer cash is deducted from the purchase price on the spot.
#1025 of 4030 Has any one bought an extended warrenty
Nov 29, 2001 (8:44 am)
Hello to all
I'm fixing to buy extended warrenty for my millenia, and I was wondering if any one recommend buying extended warrenty from any where in specific, Also has any of you heard about a place on the internet called WWW.warrentygold.com, if so what do you think of it,I read on there Web site and it sounds very good. I also hear that the credit unions and car insurance company sell those extended warrenty, do any of you recommend where to get one from.
I'm wanting to buy one very soon, and all of your help is appreciated in advance.
please let me know what you think.
#1026 of 4030 Extended warranty
Nov 29, 2001 (10:47 am)
I was tempted to do it, too - but I really couldn't find company that I felt 100% comfortable with as extended warranty provider. Here is another one to look at: http://www.warrantybynet.com/
Because I have 2001 Millenia S I decided to start worrying about warranty in a couple of years from now...
#1027 of 4030 Where does one find dealer incentives?
Nov 29, 2001 (4:48 pm)
I'm interested in a Millenia but am frustrated trying to find a RELIABLE place to find out what ALL the incentives are on a particular make and model. For instance - Edmunds says nothing available but low apr. Kelley Blue Book shows 1500 back. Nobody lists any dealer incentives like the $4k I've read about here. Does anyone have the facts for me? Thanks in advance. BTW, I
drive a 99 626 with the 4cyl and have 54k flawless miles on the car. Still rides new - no rattles and doesn't use a drop of any fluids. I'm considering a 2.5 litre Millenia. I guess thats what everyone calls a "P" ??? Let me know your experiences - especially anyone with high miles (anyone w/ over 125k??)
