Love... — now that i have put some more work into this car i find that 96HP can go a long way... especially with a 5 speed! although it needs new shocks and handles like a boat I will love it till the end! PS. Added cup holders!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Good Car, Not Much To Look At — This was the second car that I owned. It wasn't much to look at, but it was fuel injected, and got me from point A to point B. It was moderately comfortable. Power was decent, but not too much. The seats were moderatly comfortable.

1986 Mazda 626 — First car I ever had, and I really liked it despite its problems. My family traded it in to buy a 2004 CR-V. It only had a 3-speed transmission, which meant I couldn't go more than 55 or 60 without feeling like I was breaking it. It handled very well and felt very solid. The downside: for some reason a lot of stuff started to go wrong and had to be replaced before it had 100,000 miles, and it popped and cracked when turning because something else was going out. Bearing plates, I think.

Pros

Copious torque, a neat green turbo light that came on under boost, great stereo, comfortable seats, a great bargain compared to other vehicles in its class.

Cons

Torque steer.  Lots and lots of it!

Mazda 626gt Turbo. An Amazing Performer For The Mid-eighties. — This car was a stealth sport sedan. It had big (for 1986) polished aluminum wheels with performance tires, headlight washers, an aggressive honeycomb grille, and a black and red TURBO badge on the trunk. With a high performance stereo, orange and black gauges, an aggressive stance, and enough torque to break the tires loose with almost no effort, this car was a thrill both around town and on long trips.

1986 Mazda 626 Gt Turbo — I would recommend this car if you could find one. They're getting hard to find, mine is a sleeper because it has been stored. Now it's back because of the fantastic MPG I'm having fun so far, I have put 200 miles on it. It now it needs a muffler. I want to keep it factory original if possible but its getting hard to find OE parts. I looked at standard 626's but was not impressed until I drove the GT Turbo!
