1998 Mazda 626 ES 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought one of the first 1998 Mazda 626's in the area. If I had known better, I would have checked Edmunds and purchased another car. My car has been back to the dealer 9 times for electrical problems. This was fixed when the dealer replaced the whole wiring harnass. Even more drama was in store for me. The transmission went at 62,000 miles. $3200 to replace the transmission. With the electrical problems, the transmission, and poor trade in value, this car was a complete bust. My only saving grace was purchasing mechanical breakdown insurance from Geico, this made the cost of replacing my transmission $250.

Favorite Features

Swinging car vents to keep the entire car cool simultaneously.

Suggested Improvements

Improve transmission, and sight lines on the car. it is extremely hard to see the front and rear bumper to judge parking.
