Review of the 2000 Mazda 626

  • A bland, bread-and-butter sedan that's not big enough for families and not sporty enough for enthusiasts.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Sharp steering and handling, improved content and options.

  • Cons

    Styling that is still bland, shortage of horsepower.

  • What's New for 2000

    Improvements in styling, handling, steering, interior content and options are the highlights of the 2000 626.

Money pit!

Vehicle: 2000 Mazda 626 ES 4dr Sedan

Bought the 4 cylinder with about 30k miles on it. Once I hit 100k every major system started breaking down. Replaced the transmission, everything on the front end from the sway bar to the tie rods and ball joints. Electrical problems. I think I put more money in this car than I paid for it. I will never buy a Mazda product again. Not built to last. Drove daily 80 miles a day all highway. The worst car I ever owned.




2000 mazda 6 with 281k

Vehicle: 2000 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan

i bought this car new in 5/00 with 16 miles. since then, i now have over 281,000 miles on it and it's still running strong. A/C replaced 2 yrs ago, front axles replaced last year and transmission is going out (5 sp man), but with almost all highway miles, i'm going to drive it into the ground. otherwise, runs smooth, good pick up, comfortableand gets me there and back reliably! happy enough that we bought a 2009 mazda 6 that my wife now drives around!

Totally disappointed

Vehicle: 2000 Mazda 626 ES 4dr Sedan

Purchased the 626 used at 60k mi. Now have around 173k and on the 3rd transmission, which is now going out after 31k miles. That's $2,200 for the transmission that lasted less than 2yrs. Beyond that, I've went through many a hot months without AC, after spending 800 to repair it. But hey, it has an oscillating vent that still works!! Truly a bad piece of machinery.
