1999 Mazda 626 Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

My 1999 626, manual transmission (we bought it new) has 165,000 miles on it. It is now a "college car" for my son. The engine went out a few weeks ago and we opted to put a used one in (100,000 miles on this one). $1,800.00 later and the car is running great. We could not find a used car for the price of repairing this one. The body and interior on this car still looks great. Only problems..antenna won't go down, one power window doesn't work (back seat) other than that this car has been almost repair free. I hope we can get another few years on the new engine.....

Review

I love my 1999 Mazda 626! I drove it home 100 miles the first night I owned it and fell in love with it! I purchased it to replace my 1992 Accord that bit the dust. My friends love the swinging air vents. The car runs great and looks decent for Mazda styling. I never expected to be so satisfied with it!


Best Features

Swing Air vents, clean and easy to use interior, and the ease to drive. Very quiet on the road.


Worst Features

Stronger engine, more options for LX, and cup holders in the back.

Review

I'm only 17 so when looking for a car my grandpa wanted me to get one little but Nice. So he picked it out. At first it was great but within a week it was a total pain. The back sway bar was broke, there was a little oil leak and the fuel pump went out. In total repairs where over $1000. Thats a lot for a girl in school and working a minimum wage job but I got it fixed and its a great car. Everything works good. Pretty good gas mileage and not too bad on insurance.


Best Features

The nice trunk. big enough for a sound system and grocerys. really roomy. a/c and heat with the sway air thingy. cd player. its not too loud for a v6.


Worst Features

from what i hear the sway bar in the back goes out on everybodys. and the fuel pump does too.

Review

Bought new and have no regrets. I have the car maintained regularly and it is garage kept. It has not broken down on me yet and the repairs have really only been maintainance items. Best car I have ever owned in terms of reliability.


Best Features

Swinging vents, large trunk, fuel economy, fold down seats for through trunk storage.


Worst Features

Full size spare tire

Review

I love this car for following reasons 1. Comfort. I love the interior comforts and the features that it has like Swing Vents 2. Driving. The acceleration was good. Pick up was not comparable to Chrysler V6 but not bad either. 3. I have driven this car over the NH mountains and never had issues. 4. Had to recharge the AC at about 97kmiles and timing belt replaced and after that the AC is fine without issues Regular oil changes , 90000 service, done. Recently had to replace the transmission hose as it had some problems.


Best Features

Swing vent, Keyless Entry, Interiors, Exteriors, Driving


Worst Features

Could pack in a little more power. Was thinking of upgrading to Mazda6
