1996 Mazda 626 ES V6 4dr Sedan


Sports sedan with 5 speed tranny. Plenty of power and easy on gas (29 mpg highway).Very reliable but repairs can be expensive. Had 120k when bought in 2002. Now close to 200k but rides like new. The V6 engine will outlast the frame. It uses one qt. of oil every 3k miles. If you are looking for this model, make sure it has the 5 speed. Avoid the automatic!

Best Features

The rotating air louvers, sunroof, large trunk.

Worst Features

The larger V6 engine barely fits making labor costs high for alternator, water pump, and timing belt replacement. The engine compartment should be larger to allow easier access.
