1996 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan
Review
Bought it a year ago with 86k. owner rebuilt transmission at that time. Drove it out of state a few times. now, at 108k, transmission fails. After reading on the web, talking to owners and mechanics, I find out that it was a FORD transmission; 1994-97 626 transmissions have design flaws moking them trouble or failure periodically. All Mazda dealers know it; mechanics know it; most Mazda 626 owners are suffering through it. A "junk transmission" is their exact word. I fixed mine at AAMCO (well know national tranny place www.aamco.com ) for $1750 and they told me they did something extra to fix the issue permanently. Engine power slow.
Favorite Features
roomy interior and comfortable ride.
Suggested Improvements
Recall the transmission; too many complaints around.
