2001 Mazda 626 LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This car might have been better as a 5 speed manual. I personally would never build a 4 cylinder car with an automatic transmission. It was underpowered and noisy from the beginning. At about 59,000 miles I needed a major tune up and now it has a broken boot and front drive axle and the car has only little more than 70,000. The handling in any weather conditions is sleepy at best. It may be a front drive car but it should be able to control its back end a bit better.

Best Features

Swing mode on the vents. Roomy backseat for a compact.

Worst Features

No more automatics on 4 cylinders to start with. Better handling and smoother ride.
