Zombie car that I love.
By hassef on


2001 Mazda 626 ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Owned this car for 11 years. I purchased
car used as a dealer demo with 7K on it. At first thought I had a lemon, door trim peeled off, radio broke, O2 sensor went and a sway bar linkage broke, thankfully all under warranty.
Now in its 12th year the car has given up the ghost and is a rolling zombie that refuses to die!
This year had to replace the CV boot and axle
(my fault regular maintenance would have spotted cracked boot and saved me $), the oil pan rusted out, front struts gone, check engine light is on,
exhaust almost rusted out and engine leaking oil from a gasket. Saying all this I still loved it. Has out lived all my other cars and cost the least in maintenance.

Best Features

Now the family beater, used for light duties and will do so until it finally decides to die. Next car will be a Mazda.
