A reviewer wrote in that this car has a transmission without a filter. It makes common sense that, to keep the selnoid valves from gumming up with dirty transmission oil, an easy and inexpensive way to keep that transmission in peak working order BEFORE it crashes is to change the oil.....a little PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE will go a long way to keeping this car on the road and out of the shop. One guy wrote that he bought the car at 113,000 miles on it and 2,000 miles later, the transmission went out. Now...ask yourself...do you think the previous owner changed the transmission oil frequently? (every 35,000 miles)
I bought this used car in sept 06, June 07 the transmission needed replacement! The previous owner had replaced the transmission Nov 05, one of the reasons why I bought this car despite the negative reviews it received! It was a great car to drive and didn't give problems until the transmission caved less than a year of my driving it. I bought it at 180,000 miles and now it's stopped running at 185740 miles! What a waste!
I have a 1995 Maza 626 LX--4cyl. model with 210,000 miles. This car is amazing. I've had very few problems with the car--no mechanical issues, occassional exhaust problems that stem from New England winters and road salt. Everything else has been standard maintenance--oil, plugs-wires, etc. I know that eventually I will need to get another car--but I'm sure that I can only be disappointed after such great luck with this one.
I bought this car used late in 1998 with almost 60,000 miles. I use it for city driving primarily and it has been GREAT! Other than usual maintenace all I repaired/replaced is the clutch. It runs and drives great. Very reliable.
