Best car

Vehicle: 1991 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan

i have had 5 cars before this. a vw jetta. a ford ranger, a doge neon. a chevy blazer and a honda civic.and i drive cars like a speed racer and this is by far the best car i have owned. i purchased for 750$ thinking i would get an ok car just to drive for a little while. and then i drove it. and it drives really smooth and is actually kind of fast. this is a very fun car to drive. it drives perfect on the highway and gets great gas millage. about 32mpg. i put 20 dollars every other week and i drive it alot. the tranny shifts perfect. although my shifter is a little loose. wich is no problem. car has 226,xxx miles and still runs strong.

Got the car as a gift from my uncle. I've some problems, the clutch pedal gets stuck sometimes, the rim's lip is a little bent so it leaks some air. It has a power steering leak and somewhat of a small gas leak, if I fill it up all the way. The frame is in the worst condition I've ever seen on a car. It cant go on a lift at all. I've done some brake work on, wheel cylinders, pads, shoes, and brake lines. Bought new rear speakers spx my a/c don't work at all. There's a short in the circuitry, every time I put a fuse in it, it blows it up.

A tank on the road

I bought my 626 for my daily commuter with 206,000 miles on her. She is a non turbo, 5 speed manual, she now has 300,500 miles on her and still running strong. Just recently I have had to replace alternator, starter, coil, timing belt and heater blower motor, but what the hay, she has earned all that. I drive her like she's stolen every day, and the worst mileage I've ever gotten once was 29 mpg, the best ever on a road trip has been 42 mpg. I average about 35.5 mpg daily at highways speeds up to 80 mph. I wouldn't trade this girl for anything in the world. I would recommend a 1991 626 LX to anyone. My kids love riding in her because she is so peppy and fast. This is just an all around great car!

Doesn't handle well with deer

I bought this car as a beater that I was planning on having only a year. When I left the country my sister took it because it was a lot better than her Tempo. We haven't had any problems with it that are out of the ordinary (i.e. brakes, shocks, tires.) At 211,000 miles the engine was still running like a top. It didn't show signs of leaking oil. It even made another cross country trip. The only thing that killed it was that my brother hit a deer. Looking at these low ratings for this car, reading the background stories and having a little mechanical ability under my belt, my best advice is to drive it and see if it has been abused or sitting dormant too much. It is a great car.

No better car for the

My family bought this car when it was new in 1991. I was 7 years old at the time. 12 years and 143,000 miles later the only things wrong with this car are stupid mistakes made by myself and my do-it-yourself dad. This was my first car and I had it for 2 years until I got a 97 Blazer, which my mom totalled. I had more problems in 6 months with the Blazer than 12 years in the Mazda. I'm still driving it back and forth to college (about 300 miles) and it shows no signs of slowing down.
