Not a good over 120,000 vehichle

2000 Mazda 626 LX V6 4dr Sedan
My husband & I purchased this vehicle used with about 55,000 miles on it. Was very reliable with very few problems until it reached around 120,000 when we were constantly dealing with issues. From A/C issues that had to be fixed because they were needed for other systems, to main engine trouble, this car turned into a money pit with high miles. I noticed most reviews have been written with the cars still under 100,000 miles. If you are wanting a car that will last, get rid of your 626 before it hits 120,000. We wish we did. The repair man just told us it would be another $700 to fix the issues this time. We said forget it, and revived an older car we had. A much more reliable choice.
Comfortable, plenty of leg room, roomy even for larger guys (like my husband)
Oscillating vents seemed great, until 110 degree days when driver and passenger both wanted continuous air blown at them. CD player gave out long before it should have. Air conditioning not very cold, expensive to get parts and work on
