Good for a temporary car

2002 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


My girlfriend and I shopped around till she found this 626. She wanted something else, but nothing else seem to offer greater value for similar price. At first, we liked it a lot and she talked about keeping it for a lot longer. However, now there's a problem with the intake manifold, and three seperate repair shop can't seem to fix it. It's still running okay, but she can't help but wonder when the car would give her troubles. It's a good car, just that it disappointed us quite a bit after just two years. Getting this car at a low price allowed my girlfriend to save up for another car, so we'll be shopping for another Mazda, maybe Mazda 3 to replace this

Best Features

Good peformance for four cylinder. Great gas mileage. Good driving dynamics. Great value for low price. Comfortable interior. Probably would've made a good first family sedan, but we haven't quite gotten there yet :-).

Worst Features

AC isn't too great on hot summer days. Apparently some reliability problems. Also an annoying problem with check engine lights coming on all the time. Other than that, not much.
