Review

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.

Review

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.

Review

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.

Great, cheap, but fun transportation

Review

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.

Driven like it's been stolen!

Review

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!

Love, Love, Love My Mazda 626!

Review

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!

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

Doesn't handle well with deer

Review

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.

Yuck!!!

Review

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
