Don't believe the hype
By mn mike on


1996 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan


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"!).

Best Features

Manual trans "swinging vents" bubble roof fits my oversized frame

Worst Features

More HP better MPG (the camry gets 6mpg more w/a bigger engine!!!)
