I recently saw an ad for 1999 Millenia S 9.000 miles for 12.999. It seemed too cheap to be true, so I took my wife to the dealer and it was there waiting to be bought. The car looks super clean and still has that new car smell, but I ma a bit hesitant. The price is way tooooo low. What gives????? Should I go for it???? Is there a trick that I am not aware of??? ( I do not trust dealers at all - bad experiences from the past). Please advise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hm, according to KBB (www.kbb.com) and Edmunds used car values it should sell for $17-$18K (trade-in value is over $14K).
I'd run VIN through Carfax or something like that to make sure it hasn't been totaled before (salvage?).
I've also read reports that cars recovered from garages under WTC are showing up at used car dealers. I'm not sure about that new car smell...
Good luck, do your research well!
#1460 of 4030 BLOW OUT SALE ON MILLENIAS

Quick question for you guys.
Do you think there is going to be a blow out sale on the Millenias when the Mazda 6 arrives?
Guess what? Mazda gave me two free tickets for the New York car show,who said Mazda was cheap:).

I think it is going on right now. $4000 to $5000 under invoice seems to fit that description. My brother in law is a car dealer, and he was amazed at mine being bought at that price.

I have a 2000S ME with 12,000 on it & just noticed this yesterday. I seem to remember reading the cause/ effect in this forum. Any one remember? I didn't want to have to back through all the posts to find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
#1463 of 4030 which color is best
Mar 07, 2002 (11:23 pm)
I was just wondering what you guys thought was the best color for the millenia either 99-00 or 01-02. I have a 99 s with the white/sandstone exterior and chrome wheels and it is absolutely beautiful but I am in the market to get a new car (a millenia of course) and I saw a '01 with the black/silver exterior and it was definitely an eye catcher. It had more of a dramatic affect than the white/sandstone which screems elegance and luxury. My only knock of the black/silver would be the fact that the leather is gray which in my opinion looks dull. Black leather would've been gorgeous with the exterior color scheme. But as it stands I am torn between these two colors. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Any color would be with the chrome wheels.

No second thought on this- go for the pearl white this is definately the best color in the Millenia line up (IMHO).Only negative here is the body repair if you have an accident,a tiny scracth can cost you a fortune.

I also like the Pearl White Mica. But my wife hates white cars, and only sees it as white.
I bought the Platinum Silver, with gray interior, which is beautiful. I also saw it with tan interior, which to me is a complete mismatch, and I don't even see that combination on the color chart. Silver is the most popular of all car colors right now, for a good reason. It looks great, and hardly even shows dust on it. According to a friends son who works at a car wash, it is the easiest color to make look good.
Happy car hunting.

I have the same Millenia but with 17k on it, I also see small amounts of whitish smoke upon start and then some...I believe (not sure) it is due to a small amount of oil drip from the supercharger seals??....Hopefully someone who knows the exact cause will post the proper answer....where are you located kngmke??

Are there some good places to get parts and accesories on the web? I just want simple stuff like filters and basic accessories.
BTW - I am buying an 01 Millenia P. 11k miles super clean. Great value versus the Camry or Accord.
