Mazda Millenia



  • All of your responses are greatly appreciated. I'm on the case today.
  • I beleive a 95 626 remote is the same.
  • The mazda parts CD lists 5 different remotes for the 95 millenia. Just go to the dealer and pay the $115.

    The Millenia remote is unique to that model. The MPV has no trunk release and no panic button until 2000MY.

    There are actually only 2 and the early one is $115 vs $200 for the most common one that fits up to the 2000MY. The early one is the same as the late model 929 but it wasn't very long in the Mill.

    The '95 626 remote is the Ford style, not even close. Of course Bob, you could have checked that.
  • Okay let me apologize in advance for posting dumb a** questions. I'm definitely trying to go the EBAY route but lets say I get it, what needs to be done for it to work with my car. Does it have to go to the dealer to get programmed or what?

    Either take it to the dealer and have it programmed or you can follow the instructions listed in the shop manual to program it yourself (not very difficult).

    Blake, I have a 2000 S and have over 25K on the odo. My gas milage has been a measly 18mpg for city and highway combined. Spoke to dealer in Dallas Tx. area who claimed that the reformulated gas is the culprit. Other than the gas mileage (it sucks!), the MM is a very dependable car.

    How to reprogram your car's remote:

    Step 1: Open the driver's side door, and then press the lock button (on the door) so all the doors lock and the security light comes on.

    Step 2: Unlock the drivers side door by turning up the switch so the security light now turns off.

    Step 3: - Insert your key in the ignition and turn it to ACC position, and then take out the key. Repeat this three times. (remember to take the key completely out!)

    Step 4: Close and open the door three times. The car should now beep once.

    Step 5: Press any button on the remote two times. The car should beep once again.

    Step 6: Wait 5 seconds and then the car should beep four times and your remote is programmed!
  • Step 7: Do a little jig.

    Step 8: Bow to Japan and stand on your head.

    Step 9: Throw some salt over your shoulder.

    There its done..

    Sorry couldn't

    Don't forget to mention what to do if he has 2 remotes.

    I believe the procedure you gave him will lock out any others but the one he programs.
  • What are the lowest prices now for both the P & S models & where are they? Looks like Kelley blue book site is showing $ 7,500 in incentives. How come this info is not on Edmunds?
  • My new P model has to have the accelerator pushed almost to the floor for it to downshift. Has anyone been able to get the shift points reprogramed so that shifts can be made quicker? Any info on reprograming would be appreciated.
  • A Boston area dealer has an ad for a 2002 S for $22,835 as I do not qualify for the college graduate additional $500 off. They are advertising it as $10K off. It seems like Mazda/Ford has pretty much eaten a lot of the depreciation on this car.

    BTW, I keep reading that this car depreciates but every time I look at a used one they don't seem very cheap to me. My wife's 2000 Impala depreciated about 10K in two years.

    I looked at the 2000 model two years ago and I didn't want to pay $26K for it. I also didn't like the harshness from the tires. This car doesn't need 17 inch wheels in my opinion. Are the tires still harsh? The new model isn't as good looking as the older model imho but it has more features.

    I'm looking for advice. I know Edmunds rated it dead last in its test but at this price it is now in a totally different competition. I will call tomorrow and see what its all about.

    For the same money I can buy a used 2001 Lincoln Continental which is faster though not more manuverable obviously. I consider bothto be "luxury" cars. Easier to get parts for Lincoln and cheaper also. The mileage may not be that different as I see some Millenia owners are not getting good mileage. I have considered the Maxima but I don't want a live rear axle.
  • FYI-

    Some of the instructions posted mention pulling the key completely out -- this is NOT the case for my 2001 P. Everything in the directions is correct about car door open, lock, unlock, insert key, power on/off 3 times, then you'll hear a horn beep - hit any of the remote buttons (I got 3 of 4 remotes to program) and you'll hear the car beep. You're all set.

    Lastly, don't pay $100+ for remotes - please, you're just allowing the dealer to gouge us! Go on ebay or do a web remote search. Plenty of guys out there will sell for $40 or less. I got 2! Millenia 01 remotes for $25.
  • Thanks people, you all have been truly helpful. The arguments about cars are cool but when you can really get good info from complete strangers, that's what makes this site.

    Kelly is showing 4 different incentives;

    1. 0% financing
    2. Low financing and $2,500 rebate
    3. $5,000 rebate
    4. $500 college graduate

    These incentives can not be combined, except the college graduate. You can only pick one of them.

    Gas mileage in my '02 S in town is 23-24 mpg.
  • I'm sorry I have to say this and it's not just because I own a 95 Mill S. I am at work and just took a smoke break out in the parking lot, I was just looking around and happened upon my car. The Millenia is such a good looking car. I can't believe they're not going to be continued. I mean honestly what other car looks that good. It definitely looks better than the Lexus (Es), all Acuras, the Maxima etc. I live in Los Angeles and most of the nice cars people have are the Beamers and the High end Lexus's and so on, but you really don't see that many Mill's as opposed to in my hometown of MD. I see the same nice beamers everyday, and I would love one but they're everywhere. I love the seeing Mills here because it reminds me of my car. If a car could truly be handsome, I'm sorry but the Mill is it. I just wanted to get that off my chest. Please continue.
  • Can the autodimming mirror be installed at the dealership or is it a factory option only? That way I can pick one out that is otherwise what I want and add it on.
  • Went to dealer as noted above. They had a great deal on black S without CD changer, winter package or chrome wheels for $22,800 plus another $600 for Lojack. Didn't care about the wheels but wanted the CD changer and the winter package and didn't want a black car. Bought Sand Mica S for $25.5K plus $150 for moonroof deflector. They wouldn't budge on the price, so I paid an extra $3K for $1400 of options but got the color I wanted. On the other hand this is the same price it sold for 2 1/2 years ago when I looked at them. Got lousy trade in for my car but given market today decided to get it. Picking it up on Monday.
  • You can add the mirror later...I had it added to my 2001 S.
