1993 Mazda 626 DX 4dr Sedan


Review

Purchased this vehicle in May 2010 with low miles. The interior build quality is quite good, if a little boring, with few squeaks or rattles. Economical and "spacious", it's not exactly fun to drive but gets from A to B with little fuss. The term boring aptly describes this vehicle. The frustration comes in with the infamous flashing "hold" light; replaced the component the diagnostic told me to replace, to no avail. The trouble code causes the transmission to operate only up to 3rd gear. If you're considering this vehicle, get one with the manual transmission as they were not plagued with the problems of the automatic. Haven't had any other mechanical issues.


Best Features

Economy; interior space (for the year it was built)

Review

This car has undoubtedly been the most reliable transportation I've ever purchased. With 160,000 miles on it has been as reliable as I could ask for.


Best Features

The fact that it has great "get-up-and- go" for it's age. Sporty.... I'd say!


Worst Features

Needs head shaved a bit and new head gaskets (the whole shabang). Air conditioner probably needs to be replaced, in lieu of refurbishing it.

Review

I have had this car for 6 months now it has 400,000 km on it now. It is the most reliable vehicle I have owned in a while. I drive the crap out of this car and it just wont die, I would buy another Mazda if they are all like this


Best Features

The gas mileage is great in the city and the car has lots of pep.


Worst Features

Better cup holders. Better exhaust system (not that I plan to fix it). A 6 speed would make this car amazing.
