I wholeheartedly agree. I was considering the Maxima, as a friend of mine had an older model edition I really liked. The later models, however, are a monstrosity (especially the rear end. What's with those stupid tail lights?) I agree also about the 626. Another friend of mine had an older model 626 several years ago, and I really liked it. Now, I find the 626 quite plain. It's funny though, because the Millenia's differences from the 626 are only subtle (as far as styling goes), but I find the millenia to be an absolutely beautiful car. It just goes to show how subtlties can make all the difference.
Has anyone noticed that Mazda is starting to advertise again like mad. Of course it's for the MPV. I still haven't seen a Millenia commercial since 1995. Fine by me. I love having one of only a handful around. There's a sort of commaraderie in it. On those rare occassions I see another one on the road, I glance over and give a nod to the driver... the driver almost always returns the nod acknowledging that we both know a secret held by a select few... Millenia...

Hello, this is my first visit...just purchased a 2000 sand mica MilleniaS with chrome wheels...looks great...my question...Do I need mud guards...I think it will detract from the appearance of the car but I do not want to deal with tar...paint chips etc.

2001 does not look better in person either. I am glad that you are glad that you got 2000.
ecaf - I agree on all points, including your thoughts about Maxima and Q45. They looked so good in early 90's.

I have mud guards put on my millenia S sandmica and It does not take away any of the looks, As a matter of fact I thinks that it adds to the looks.
go for it,.

marak88...thanks for the advise...did you get them at your mazda dealer and what color are they ?
Sep 15, 2000 (2:43 pm)
yes, i got them from the mazda dealer, I think they cost around $85-95 for all 4 of them, they even put them on for me, black is the only color they come in.

I think that your price 27500 is not a bad price at all, if you calculate the interest 3.9% assuming its for 5 years, then you are paying about $2813 worth of interest, if someone else buy the millenia now $25500 with 7% interest rate for 5 years, then the interest will be around $5172 in interest, calculating the difference in interest is $2359, if you take the $2359 out of your 27500 then your deal is actually $25141, on top of all of that you have got your car in Jan 1999 not at the end of the year, before mazda discounted the prices even more. I think that you got a super deal, you did real well.
#125 of 4030 Interior Cleaners

To all those out there who own a '00 Millenia and are looking for a good leather and interior cleansing product, I can assist you here. I have a product that cleans 100 times better than all the retail products that are out on the market.
This product does not leave any of that greasy/oily sheen that many other products leave behind, I have been using this product for about 2 years now, and I can assure you that there is nothing better available.

What I did for price was went with dealer financing at 9.99%, but paid it off in full on my first payment with a home equity line of credit. The Home equity line of credit will have an effective after deduction rate of between 5.5 and 6%. This is not a bad option for those who can use it.

Good move, you get a tax write off for on a purchase like a lease, without the headaches of a mileage allowance.
