By bones on


1998 Mazda 626 ES 4dr Sedan


bought 6 months ago from private
seller. 1998 ES-V6 5 speed manual, 60k
miles. have put 20,000 more on it
since, have had no problems whatsover.
It is quite fast, i guess about 7.5
seconds to 60mph. runs right with
preludes, eclipses, other little 4
cylinders... great fun. the only ford
parts i see are the cruise control, and
some minor engine control systems. no
big deal. dont know about manual
tranny, but it works fine. dealer says
engine/tranny combo "bulletproof"
compared to other mazdas so i expect
near toyota-like reliability to continue

Best Features

170hp engine, standard features (sunroof, decent leather, power accessories), lots of room inside, looks good

Worst Features

geared very low. same gears with the 6 as with the 4-banger. makes for great acceleration, but high revs on interstates. add 6th gear! make seating position higher, include more features (rear armrests, split fold seats, glovebox light, etc)
