Hey everyone just thought I would try to get a thread going where all us Milly owners can have some input. As I watch the miles on my odometer continue to creep up from my daily long drives I began to wonder if many others have high mileage on their car. So post it here. Format it as follows:

Year:
Mileage:
Major problems you've had:

Here's mine:

1995 S (owned 1 year 2 months)
119,532 miles
Complete engine rebuild at 99,800 miles ($6,500)

Feel free to post even if you have an 01 Milly with only 20k :mellow:

Well, considering I have one of the oldest dated Millenia's on here ;) (because the Mazda released the Milly 1 year early in Australia), I better put up my mileage.

Year: 1994 S (released in Australia as the Eunos 800)
Mileage: 115,853 km or 71,987 miles (damn metric system here)
Major problems you've had:
1. Leaking water pump (refilling radiator every 2 days)
2. Cracked radiator (replaced)
3. Cracked engine mount (replaced)
4. Leaking oil pan (replaced)
5. CD Changer starting to lock up a lot (my tunes!!! :'(

1999 2.5L

Mileage:40,602

Owned: 58 days



Problems:
Bought car with 36,272

1.When I first bought it from Wayne mazda I had the Mildew smell from AC vents..local trip to pep boys fixed that right quick...

2.Old windshield wipers..Good ole pepboys...

3.Now its in the shop fixing the terrible gas mileage due to the common fuel sending units..

4.I've heard the popping noise 3 times since I've had the car under hard braking or slight accel but haven't happened at all since within the first 2 weeks Ive had the car..guess maybe it was settling in...Prob not but who knows..

5. Need new key switch..When you turn key sometimes it takes a little bit more turning to start the car..

Minor ones nothing major...All under warranty so I figured i'm good..I bought extended warranty to cover my ass so I should be ok

1999 S, owned since July of 2001.

110,000 miles, bought it with 58k, yuck!

My car has been pretty much ok.
Last week though it wouldnt start, and for no known reason. So I had it towed to the dealer. They found a small wire connected to the starter solenoid I believe had corroded and broken off. Cost me about $300 between towing and repair. I bent a rim hitting curb 2 weeks ago during a snowstorm, which I replaced. When the dealer went to do the allignment they toldme I have two other bent rims. Has anyone else had this problem? They ALSO said that I should have had my timing belt replaced at 100k, a $1200 job, and that I'm probably driving on borrowed time. Anyways that's it so far...

By the way, for the guy who had the TCS problem,was it during cold weather? When it's really cold the TCS won't function properly and the light will be on for few minutes until the car warms up...

1994 Eunos 800 Millercycle. New Zealand owned. Imported from Japan @ 60,000Kms. Now done 170,000kms and most of it relatively trouble free.
Work done includes;

All front CV's
Engine Mount
Brakes (pads and disks)
Cam belt and water pump
Air intake hoses (starting to harden up with age and split)
Other small niggly things

That's about it.

As the car is now getting a bit long in the tooth, have made the decision to trade up to a 98 model with about 40,000kms on the clock - again a Jap import through Mazda in New Zealand.

What's up?...I'm a new member on this site but I have a '95 Millenia with 142,000 miles on it, and haven't had that many problems with my Milly. I've had a cracked radiator that got replaced, and the air conditioner kinda wacks out sometimes but not always...i've had a few other minor engine problems but nothing really serious

1996 Millenia S type,
I just bought my beauty 6 months ago with 88k.
Got a good price on it too. I got certain things to fix though. Might need CV Driveshaft, definitely need a tune up. Looks like previous owner got into a little bender fender. Most of that stuff should be covered under warranty.

S types come with 210 hp, any suggestion to up the hp, and improve acceleration?

98 Millenia S (has everything for that year)

Bought it in August 2001 w/57,000

It now has 95,000 but runs great (mileage is high because i lent it to a friend that put 10,000 miles on it in a month and a 1/2. no longer my friend).

Needs oxygen sensors (wont pass Texas inspection w/o) but it still gets good gas mileage

Replaced both CV joints ($200.00)

Squeaky rear struts?

Would like Scheduled Mileage service for preventative maint but thats just to be safe.

It does have an oil leak but that will be taken care of with the Scheduled Maint im planning to get.

95 Milly S
Bought it in Dec.02 W/102,000 miles
Now has 108
Replaced cracked radiator (seems to me common) Had to have the brakes done because of cracked ceramic ffront right side pad.
Cd changer sucked from day one( now gone), may need new TCS module..waiting to see. Have bad feeling may need new CV boot, or maybe axels, hear the dreaded clicking during tight turns. May also need new break booster, pedal gets squishy sometimes, may be realated to TCS/ABS module tho. Am about due for a new windshield road grit & sand have worn this one down in the wipers path. I need a remote for the factory keyless entry for this car, only a 95 will work (I've found out from trying e-bay), it has to have the mazda emblem on the remote, or will not work.
When I picked the car up I had to drive it 1,200 miles home, & it was some of the most enjoyable driving I've had in a long time, the car drives wonderfully, reminds me of my old Supra, just heaver, a lot heaver. I truly love driving my car, windows down & sunroof open w/radio turned up on a nice Sunday afternoon drive on country roads is like taking a mini vaciation in the milly.
