1997 Mazda 626 ES V6 4dr Sedan


Transmission went out at 38,000... right after the warranty expired. After a battle with the dealer, Mazda agreed to pay for parts ($2,000+) and I got stuck with $900 labor. Now at 45,000 miles engine light comes on periodically and I am starting to see oil-like stains on my garage floor. I am getting nervous. I own only $800 on the vehicle and fear more major repairs are looming. Used to buy American until Dodge and Ford fiascos... wanted to give Mazda a try, but will buy only Hondas and Toyotas from now on.

Best Features

Interior styling and dash, leather seats, sunroof, Lexus-like paint job.

Worst Features

More leg room for driver, more powerful motor, better rear defroster (weak), driver-arm-rest is cheaply constructed and busted after 22,000 miles.
