2001 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought the four cylinder LX after comparing to other cars. After driving for a couple of months I think I should have gone back to Mitsubishi. The automatic used with the four is from Ford, same one used on the Contour/Mystique line. Not very smooth shifting, quite jerky. Dealer recommended aftermarket cooler so that transmission wont burn out so soon. Talking to others with this car that seems to be a common problem. Been to service a couple of times for warranty work on interior panels and that in window antenna. Replaced rear glass due to faulty antenna (radio would go out when rear defrost is on.)

Best Features

Control layout and oscillating ac vents. style. Price.

Worst Features

Better transmission. Dont use Ford parts. More front legroom.
