Our family own a 97 Maxima and a 2000 Millenia S. I agree the Millenia is a smoother, quieter car but it is also more docile and less of a performer than the Maxima. The Millenia has more interior room and is a better family car (that's why my wife drives it). Nagging tire problems related to alloy wheels that occur on the Millenia don't exist on the Max. Interior appointments are nicer on my Maxima GLE even though the Millennia Millennium Edition is supposed to be Mazda's top of the line. Interesting fact - the Max 3.0 litre engine and the Millenia 2.3 supercharged engine both put out about 200 hp!
#205 of 212 Tires for the Max
Feb 05, 2006 (7:34 am)
Does anyone have a recommendation for all season tires for a 97 Max that perform, wear well and are QUIET? I am running a set of Toyo Proxes TPT that have been extremely noisy from the start and are driving me crazy! Upper price limit is $500 - $600 for the set.

but I was looking for a car in very tied budget ( 5000 dls) was the most. And i stumble into a Mazda Millenia S Millemium Edition in really reallly really small dealer ( i have being looking for 3 month) . It has 94,000 miles, with everything original (bose system with amp and everything) all the options with suede seats..I took a mechanical and he review it and it seems peferct...i drive it and it seems okey. This dealer is way small , dosent have financing of any kind.you have to come with your own financing or cash ( i am buying cash).
The price for sale is 5,500 dls and i really really really love this car.. I am not a car person but i found myself in love. But i am hesitante, it seem to be tooo much of good deal (all the listing i have check out are 6500-7999 same year, around the same milles and same trim)i am always highly exceptinck person.
The car is sold as it, no warranties. I could purchase one from them or buy it outsite but my budget is tie. What is your opinion? What you i would i check for to make sure this not a lemon??
I would really appreciated your opinion.

#208 of 212 98 millenia dillemna
Feb 28, 2008 (1:54 pm)
im a baby wit a car as most wood say i have a 98 millenia base and there is a squirting sound everytime i accel to mid rpm. whenever im in nuetral or park and i rev the engine (with some exhaust leak work needed) i hear a squirting sound. could it be the fuel injectors ?, maybe it needs a tune up though its not insured just in the yard for now?sometimes in the cold it has a animal killing sound but its not the usual squeak till the engine warms up so i rev the moor to mid rpm and it stops. could that mean the timing belt is about to go? im 19 and my parents scorned the car cuz it has no radio till now but i love it .

This is an easy one. There is no comparison between the two. One is a Nissanm, the other is a glorified Ford.
#210 of 212 Maxima .... still around

Well, Max is still around while Milenia no longer exists. It was a pleasant design but compared to Max it had no chance. RIP.
#211 of 212 Lemon revisited
Aug 15, 2009 (9:10 pm)
It is interesting to note that all the old "lovers" of Millenia who forked over 20K+ for their mazdas are so silent. Perhaps their plans to keep them for 100K+ never materialized and after paying for parts which were only available from the dealer, decided to trade in their beloved Millenias where they got hosed once again. Can we all say one more time?
