Happy with my fourth mazda
By D.Rathbun on


1998 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan


This 98 626 has never reqired any
repairs except an ABS sensor @30K. It
is a 5 speed manual which seems to be
more reliable than the automatics. I
change the oil every 3000 miles and
keep up with scheduled services and
have yet to have a hint of a problem.
I'm a little worried about the Ford
connection as my well cared for
Windstar's engine blew up after 61,000
miles. The car has plenty of pep with
the 5 speed and appears to be utterly
reliable...more trouble free than my
Honda accord which puts it in good
company. It also handles well in snow
and ice but will bog down in the
really deep stuff.

Best Features

fit and finish, large trunk

Worst Features

key should unlock all the doors at once. I didn't like the origional bridgestone tires. They wore like iron and rode like iron. A set of michelin tires improved the car's ride and handling.
