Bought this Mazda 626 5spd in 2006 of March with only 76,000 miles. Now it's got over 87,000 and all I have to do was put gas in it and regular oil changes. I get about 30mpg city/ 34mpg hwy at cruise speeds of 72mph. It's fast to drive, doesn't have the oomph like the turbo, but quick on the go for a basic 4 door sedan. Interior rattles a little but that's average for a old vehicle. Everything works like it should and hopefully it will go a long long way.
Quick and fun to drive 5 speed.
Could use a little oomph under the hood but don't need to do 0-90 in 6 seconds.
