1990 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Hatchback


I just hit 176,000 on the odometer and bought the relatively rare Japanese built 5-door hatchback in April of 1990. I still have the original clutch like others here and A/C. I did have to have the A/C switch replaced as well as the EGR valve mentioned by others around 130K. This reliability has been outstanding; Rather, I have only had normal maintenance of the oil, anti- freeze, CVjoints, timing belt, tuneups, etc. other than the items above. I have never replaced the manual transmission fluid.

Best Features

Fold flat hatchback rear seat 30 mph gallon average overall Extremely reliable

Worst Features

U.S. model reliability not the same as Japanese models. Body colored door handles indicate Japan (and J on Vin) -- chrome door handles on sedans indicates made in U.S.
