It Ain't Sexy, But It's Wheels
By BobbyBaylor on
1998 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan
A good car for the price. Bought this
car new and drove it 4 years during
college. Boring sedan styling, but I'm
a boring sedan kind of guy. Looks more
expensive than it is to people who
don't know it's just a re-badged Ford.
Won't turn heads, but better than
driving an Accord or Civic like
everybody else. Unlike other reviewers,
I had absolutely no problems with my
626, except for weather stipping around
doors that fell out EVERY summer and
had to be replaced (under warranty).
The car never failed to start. Biggest
gripe is acceleration from 0 is
nonexistent. Lots of trunk space.
Oscilating air vents will wow all your
Good gas mileage, simple and clear dash
and center console layout
Better paint quality, defrosters don't
work well, more powerful engine!!
