2002 Mazda Millenia from North America
What has not gone wrong?
First, I had to replace a hose.
Then, the snow fell down, making me hydroplane twice, so I spent several hundred on all new tires.
Then, my spark plugs blew out.
My catalytic convertor is broken.
The driver's side bum warmer is broken, along with the heat as well!
I had to replace the timing belt, and my headlights - which need to be replaced again, not even 1 full year later!
Also, the sides of the car, where the rear tires are, are completely rusted, along with my backing plate, causing the car to ROAR as I accelerate, which the car now barely can.
The sway link is broken as well, causing me to be very close to one side of the lane I'm driving in, so I have to drive with the wheel slightly turned left to remain in the middle.
The check engine light is constantly on, AND I don't even have working airbags...
This car is also VERY low to the ground, causing me to scratch and scrape the underneath of it EVERY SINGLE BLESSED TIME I roll over a speed bump.
Latest problem: my car accelerates on its own and now the brakes aren't working!
This car lasted me just under 5 years.
When I first got this car, it was a dream. The looks, on the outside and inside, sure are great for such an old car. The stereo is unbelievable, along with how comfortable it is for me (a 20 year old female). I loved the tan leather interior that went very well with my tiger print car mats and my red exterior. It sure did turn heads!
But unfortunately the clock was very cruel with my 2002 Mazda Millenia, as this car does not age well. But what I can say is that this car has gotten me through the NJ floods and survived two accidents before finally retiring. It truly breaks my heart to give up such a great first car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
