I use this car to commute to work and
the miles on it are highway miles only.
I've liked the car for commuting but
I'm on my third transmission. Someone
reading this might think I'm hard on
transmissions but I've owned lots of
vehicles(currently own 4)and I've never
had a problem with transmissions going
out on me. The car has been an average
car for me and if the transmissions had
not gone out, I'd be really happy with
the car. The mechanics that worked on
my car told me transmissions always go
out on the Mazda 626.
lots of trunk space with fold down rear
seats allows a person to put skiis, or
other long items in the trunk.
