What a car!!!

Vehicle: 1991 Mazda 626 DX 4dr Sedan

I bought this car for $350 with a bad head gasket because the parents had let their son drive in to school for three years. I put about $600 into fixing it up. Drove it for 4 years without a problem. About 32-34 MPG at first, and then recently got about 35-38 MPG on freeway. One tank I got 542 miles with just over 13 gallons. That's about 41 MPG! The head gasket went out again last year in the winter and so I bought an oldsmobile because the though of fixing a head gasket in sub-zero weather made me cringe. The olds got about 24 MPG and drove like a boat. I just fixed the mazda and it drives like a racecar and got 37 MPG on the last tank. I love this car!!! The head gasket parts cost $250.

Great, cheap, but fun transportation

With 186,000 miles and $850 from a kid that just graduated from mechanic school and had done alot of work on it for class. I was changing jobs where I needed to drive alot and need a good MPG car with gas prices approaching $4 a gallon and rising. This car has not disappointed at all. I have had to put some money into but nothing expensive and I was able to do the work myself. Its fun to drive with 5-speed and gas mileage is terrific. I bought some wider tires and rims from a 97 626 and it handles great. If it was a hatchback I would have the best vehicle ever. The car has already paid for itself as I have driven it 12,000 miles many of those for work. Great purchase would easily buy again.

Love, love, love my mazda

I purchased this car new in 1991 with 10 miles on it. It now has over 130,000, and I still love it! Very reliable, great gas mileage, looks and runs great still! Only problem is major paint oxidization, but then, it never had a garage to sleep in. Could also use a cup holder. Interior is just as nice as when I purchased it, except for a small crack in the dash vinyl, at the corner of the defroster. :-( Not once have I had any major repairs. I'm a fanatic for clean oil in my car, keeping my plugs clean, and keeping the tires properly inflated. Thanks, Mazda, for building a wonderful, dependable car! I'll drive it until the doors fall off! FYI - I also own a '87 Mazda B2200- love it too!

I love my mazda 626

Almost no repairs with this car. I am the first and only owner. More reliable then my 1990 Camry even.

I hate this car. I have had problems with the brakes off and on. A spark plug flew out of the engine block while I was driving it. Now it doesn't always start in park and often stalls at stops and hesitates when I accelerate from a standstill. I can't wait to get rid of it. I also find that it doesn't have much get up and go on the freeway. Which would be o.k. if the car ran well and was reliable in other aspects

My mazda has been great!

I have had my Mazda 626 for four years. I've been pretty rough on it, but two growing boys and a husband riding in it almost every day for four years can be hard on any car. The biggest problem I've had with my car was when the water pump went out about 3 years ago when I was driving back and forth to college. The minor problem I'm having right now is that the driver's side door mechanism is broken and I have to open the door from the inside. Other than those things and a slight oil leak, my Mazda has been the best car I've owned.
