1998 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan
I bought my 626 used with 61k already
on it.I have had the timing chain
replaced, belts, rotors, brakes and
maintenance on a regular basis.
i keep reading about the transmissions
(mine is the automatic) and I consider
myself blessed at not having any
trouble with it and I am at 101k and
I do suggest that anyone owning the
automatic get the transmission fluid
pumped out and replaced on occasion to
increase the life of the automatic as I
do, it seems to help.
I think the rear spoiler gives mine a
somwhat sporty look and i really like
the (electric) moonroof also the huge

I would suggest that they redesign the
dash to some degree ( I am 5ft9 and

like it some of the gauges arent very
Lastly, make a powered drivers seat
common equipment and not an option as
do many manufacturers now.
