Fun for a first car
By Dr. Frito on


2002 Mazda 626 LX-V6 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


We purchased this new a year ago for
$15,000. Being our first new car we
wanted to be careful. We looked at
the Accord and Camry and really would
have liked an Accord, however for the
V-6 model we would have shelled out an
additional 6-8 grand. We've had no
troubles with it and really have had
fun. We took off on a 2500 mile road
trip not too long after purchase.
Interior is clean and simple.
Exterior is also clean and simple. No
qualms with anything.

Best Features

Clean simple interior, everything labeled clearly and within easy reach. Sound system isn't too bad. Nice materials used, not all cheapy plastics like the Chevy and Fords were.

Worst Features

This is a moot point since it is no longer being made, however the cup holders are in a dangerous place which hampers shifting our manual transmision. It isn't as quiet as the Accord either and has less power. Gas mileage could have been better. (got around 28-29 on the interstate.)
