I purchased my 626 3 years ago and it
has been a reliable car. The only
mechanical problem was last summer when
the air conditioner failed. The biggest
problem with the car is the road noise.
It comes from underneath (we live on a
dirt road) and the windows and doors let
in too much noise. I've also noticed
that the 626 doesn't seem to hold its
value and I'm a little worried about
trading it off next year.
I like the color--gold/sand colored
exterior and tan interior. It has
enough zip for me--a mom and a couple
kids. I have the automatic v-6.
Please work on the road noise problems
and little annoying rattles that seems
to develop over time. My daughter had a
Mazda MX 6 and it had lots of rattles as
