1992 Mazda 626 DX 4dr Sedan


This car just keeps on going. I've owned it for 8 years now. Have had to do the usual maintenance for a vehicle that now has ~165k miles: radiator, tie rods, valve cover gasket, alternator and water pump. Burns a little oil these days, but not bad. With higher freeway speeds these days, it doesn't get as many mpg as at 55 mph. Still, I average about 24 mpg with close to a 50/50 mix of city and highway driving. Better than most cars these days.

Best Features

Manual transmission: can wind this puppy up and go, if necessary. Good gas mileage compared to the majority of mid-size 4-door sedans made today.

Worst Features

Cupholders would have been nice, but they weren't standard back then. The cruise control has problems maintaining higher speeds (65+).
