1996 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car with 18,000 miles on it. I now have 100,000. It has had a variety of irritating, but not major, problems over the years. Frequently, the "check engine" light comes on. Usually, the Mazda dealer can't figure out why, they just turn in off. Overall, the car has performed well. At about 95,000 miles the transmission simply stopped working. It had to be completely replaced ($2,600). After the repair, it went out again after 1,500 miles and 3 weeks time. The windshield takes 5-10 minutes to clear. The car pulls snow in and blows it onto the inside of the windshield.

Favorite Features

Smooth and quiet ride. Good gas mileage. Handles fairly well.
