1998 Mazda 626 ES 4dr Sedan

Review

bought 6 months ago from private seller. 1998 ES-V6 5 speed manual, 60k miles. have put 20,000 more on it since, have had no problems whatsover. It is quite fast, i guess about 7.5 seconds to 60mph. runs right with preludes, eclipses, other little 4 cylinders... great fun. the only ford parts i see are the cruise control, and some minor engine control systems. no big deal. dont know about manual tranny, but it works fine. dealer says engine/tranny combo "bulletproof" compared to other mazdas so i expect near toyota-like reliability to continue

Favorite Features

170hp engine, standard features (sunroof, decent leather, power accessories), lots of room inside, looks good

Suggested Improvements

geared very low. same gears with the 6 as with the 4-banger. makes for great acceleration, but high revs on interstates. add 6th gear! make seating position higher, include more features (rear armrests, split fold seats, glovebox light, etc)
