Mazda 626 LX- nice car poor transmission
By GJG on
1994 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan
Bought when it was one year old as a chick car present for my wife in Cameo White with tan cloth interior. She loved it. Always a pleasure to drive, comfortable to drive. The only major maitenance problem was the transmission, replaced 3x under original and extended warranty. Not great on gas and the transmission shifts rough by design. After nine years we just gave it to our daughter and it still looks brand new. I have of course done all the required manitenance like timing belt, water pump ect....
The body and interior are really nice looking. The color Cameo White is really exceptional.
Mazda only had that really bad transmission in 1994 from what I hear. The one with the Hold button. My sister just replaced her transmission on her 95, no hold feature
