I got my Mazda when it had about 77,000
miles on it and it now has over
180,000. The engine is in great
condition, but I have had to put quite
a lot of money into repair in the
suspension system. One of my biggest
complaints about Mazdas are the cost of
the parts--in my experience they are
upwards of three times the cost of your
standard domestic car. My 626 has
served me well, but when it has needed
repair, it cost a lot! My advice to
those purchasing a Mazda: Find a good
mechanice who knows Mazdas well.
