Fun for a first car
By Dr. Frito on
2002 Mazda 626 LX-V6 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
We purchased this new a year ago for
$15,000. Being our first new car we
wanted to be careful. We looked at
the Accord and Camry and really would
have liked an Accord, however for the
V-6 model we would have shelled out an
additional 6-8 grand. We've had no
troubles with it and really have had
fun. We took off on a 2500 mile road
trip not too long after purchase.
Interior is clean and simple.
Exterior is also clean and simple. No
qualms with anything.
Clean simple interior, everything
labeled clearly and within easy
reach. Sound system isn't too bad.
Nice materials used, not all cheapy
plastics like the Chevy and Fords
This is a moot point since it is no
longer being made, however the cup
holders are in a dangerous place which
hampers shifting our manual
transmision. It isn't as quiet as the
Accord either and has less power. Gas
mileage could have been better. (got
around 28-29 on the interstate.)
