My wife and I bought our Madza with
103K on the odometer, it is now up to
165K Our 626 has been a very reliable
car but is now really starting to show
its age. When we bought it the The
paint had developed a few pinhole rust
spots, there are quite a few more now,
not bad, but noticable. We have had
to replace the radiator, a half shaft
and the air intake hose. A few months
ago the AC compressor failed. One of
the power window is faiing as well.
Other than that the car has been VERY
reliable, no problems at all with the
drivetrain. I'd love to keep it, but
a $800 A/C repair on a car worth only
$2000 is hard to justify.
Great power for a 4 cyl! reliable
drivetrain, well designed interior,
comfortable seats. Not one crack on
This is a very plain jane car to
drive, It will get you where you want
to go, but probably put you to sleep
on the way.
