Great Car - Get 5-speed standard only

1995 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan
This is a great car with over 30mpg. Bought it in 1995 and now has over a 150K and still hums perfectly. Stay away from the automatic transmissions; if you did your research when you bought it you would know it has problems. Bought new in 1995 and the only problem with it has been the antenna motor and some paint peeling last year. Only money spent has been on normal REGULAR maintenance and new tires. This car still has the original clutch. Pro's are reliability, comfort and mpg. Con's are cup holders, seat belt frays, antenna motor. I wouldn't trade or sell this car for the world.
Reliability, comfort, MPG, and clutch. MPG is over 30 MPG. Why are manufactures bragging about new MPG's because they aren't any better than this except on hybrids. Car handles fine in the Wisconsin snows.
Cup holders, seat belt durability, antenna motor durability. Price of repair parts can be expensive but repairs are almost never needed.
