Not a winter car
By Richard on


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


This is my 2nd 626. It's been a reliable car and gets exceptional fuel economy. It has no frills, but gets me where I have to be... except in the snow. Like my first (1998) 626, it slides all over the place in snow. I've tried several different tires, including snows and there's no drastic improvement. I fear driving on snow-covered roads! The only cumbersome maintenance issue is having to replace a pair of bushings in the rear suspension every 20k-25k. You know when they're worn; the noise is deafening.I've got 105k on the car and really haven't had to put a lot into it. I plan to run it as long as I can up to 200k.

Best Features

Great fuel economy, interior roominess, reliability.

Worst Features

Should not need to fuel an economy car with high octane gas, redesign the rear suspension to make it more durable. Put adjustable lumbar support in the front seats.
