#1789 of 4030 Real World Millenia Prices
May 20, 2002 (9:19 am)
What kinds of "real world" prices are people paying for the 2002 Millenia (P or S)? I've read that there are deep discounts and mfg rebates on this car. Plus this is the last year for the MM.
Also has anyone purchased a Millenia (or any other Mazda for that matter) using a Ford A or X plan? If so, how did it work and how much did you save?
I looked on the Smart Shopper board, but didn't see any such topics for the Millenia.
#1790 of 4030 Timing Belt - Water Pump
May 20, 2002 (3:43 pm)
I bought an extended warranty so the cost of the timing belt is not the issue. If the car should last me 250K miles, like many of you have said, I'd rather change the timing belt twice as opposed to 4 times.
Has anyone had their waterpump replaced? When did you have it done? I asked the dealer, and they told me not to worry about it with the 60k mile timing belt change.
#1791 of 4030 98 cd changer upgrade
May 20, 2002 (3:45 pm)
I am trying to upgrade my Cd changer in my 98, and everything on the web says that I should check if the system has cd changer controls. Does the 98 bose factory system have cd changer controls?

You should have cd changer controls on the factory system...you just have to make sure to get a changer that works with them.
#1793 of 4030 Re: Timing Belt - Water Pump

I got the timing belt on my '96L replaced about six months ago at my local mazda dealership. Coincidence or not, the water pump starting leaking a day or two later. After getting frustrated with the dealership, I got an independent shop to replace the pump (it cost nearly as much as to replace the belt). This owner of this shop was amazed that the dealership didn't go ahead and replace the pump when they were changing the belt since it requires no additional labor and the part is fairly cheap. I've definitely learned my lesson...

silvercrown, you can expect about $22K for the P and $25 for the S model.
#1795 of 4030 Timing Belt & Water Pump & more
May 23, 2002 (4:43 am)
Back in 1999 my water pump went out in my 1995L MM and the dealership did go ahead & changed the timing belt. I did have a warranty on the car but it only paid for the part that was broken (water pump). The timing belt cost me $450.
Also I just purchased a 2002P SE black wth the ivory interior for $22,500 this is the drive off price. Now I did trade in my 1995L which had a balance of $3100 with my bank. The car had some damage to the interior but it was silver which is popular & it only had 87k miles on it.
**To anyone,was this a good deal?**
#1796 of 4030 Front End Cover for 98 Millenia
May 23, 2002 (12:44 pm)
I have a 98 Premium MM. Love it! I would like to protect the front end as I am on the highway frequently. Local Mazda dealer cost for a full front end bra is $119. LeBra website is at $92.99 for a full bra. I would rather simply get the top part of the bra to cover the hood instead of the wrap around bumper full size bra, but cannot seem to locate one. Do you know of any other sites I could check out???
Thanks in advance for your responses!!

Thanks for the info. I really like the looks of the Millenia but I never thought I could afford one until I read about the pricing discounts on this board. With this being the last year and me having access to both a Ford A and X discount plan, maybe .....
#1798 of 4030 Differences between '01 & '02
May 25, 2002 (5:42 am)
I should know this by now (as much as I've been hanging around this board). What are the differences between the 01 and 02 Millenia P? I'm not sure there are any. Thanks in advance.
