1997 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan


Overall the car has performed fairly well. After first purchasing the car the check engine light went on. The car also ran rough. Just today I learned the car had a leaky heater coil; had it by passed for a 100 dollars instead of replacing the whole thing for about a thousand. The A/C on the car is wonderful; cools in about two minutes flat. Gas mileage is about 18 miles to the gallon. The paint is not very good on the car. I would recommend it for a first car for let's say a college student. If you are a real commuter I would not buy this car; instead I would by a Nissan or Honda - two much better cars.

Best Features

The air conditioning is wonderful, the basic stereo is pretty good.

Worst Features

The power on the car needs improving. The transmission could shift a bit more smoothly.
