1997 Mazda 626 DX 4dr Sedan

Review

I purchased my 626 DX with 63,000 miles last May from a buddy for $4500.00-- thought I was getting a good deal. In less than 11,000 miles the following has happened: exhaust fell off, front brakes + rotors had to be replaced, CV joint replaced, radiator had a hole in it, clutch went out and all four struts are shot. Some deal. Trade value on this dog is nothing, so I'm fixing it and putting it up for sale so I don't totally lose my shirt.

Favorite Features

It's not bad looking. That's it.

Suggested Improvements

Try building a decent car, Mazda. My sister-in-law has a '97 626 LX and has probably sunk better than 10 grand into it--three transmissions (auto) + struts twice. We both should've bought Hondas.
