1998 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan

Review

Not a bad car for the price. Stay away from the automatic transmission models--they have a long history of premature failure. Luckily, ours came with a 5 speed. Unless you're very concerned with gas milage, try to find a V6. I've found the 125hp four cylinder engine very unrewarding. Where the 626 shines is in handling. I've been very impressed with the way the car corners

Favorite Features

Stock stereo is very good. The stock alloys are also nice, as well as power moonroof and spoiler. They give the 626 a very sporty look.

Suggested Improvements

Hore horsepower for the four cylinder, as 125 is not only weak, but well behind the Camry and Accord. Also, height-adjustable seats, though I heard it was available in later models.
