1996 Mazda 626

1996 Highlights

Chrome is tacked on front and rear, and the hood is raised a bit to give the 626 a more substantial look. ABS is available as a stand alone option on LX and LX-V6 models for the first time (formerly, you had to buy an option package), and side-impact protection meets 1997 standards.

Reliable Used Vehicle
This was my first Mazda and I have been impressed with its performance and reliability. It's fun to drive. Great for a non-boring A-to-B commute.
Just can't complain
I've had my Mazda for 5.5 years. With the 4 and the manual, acceleration is average but fuel economy is great (32 in mixed driving, higher on the highway). The FR680s I had wore away in 20K, but the Potenzas I replaced them with have been much better. Coming up on my 1st brake job at 70K. Otherwise, aside from oil changes and a new muffler, it's been great and trouble free.
Don't believe the hype
2.0L I4, 5sp trans, 221k miles. Only problems I have had were wear/tear items (rotten plug wires, oil sending unit failure, vacuum hose leak, drive axles at 120k, struts at 120k). Don't know where people are having the problems with the trans, as I am still on my original clutch. Purchased this car w/32k miles in 2000, and heavy mix of city & hwy driving, have had no major problems. Not a speed demon of a vehicle, but gets me from A to B safely and comfortably (and I'm 6'4"!).
