Dependable Boredom — i am so cheap that i would gladly own this car again. perfect car for your teenage daughter. dependabe but boring. wont turn heads. very low cost of ownership and driving cost. i have to add that the body held up well in rusty PA. the trans is a little loose but probably needs a flush.

We Have Owned This Car Longer Than Any Others And It Still Runs Like A Top. — This car is reliable. We have had no major problems with it. All it required was basic maintenance throughout the years. It starts fast and runs quiet. It handles well. The air conditioner in it works better than our other cars. The gas mileage is great 26 mpg in town, 32 hwy.

My Favorite Car. — this car was awesome. I loved it and i miss it a lot. When i went to pass a car and the passing gear kicked in it sounded like a race car. Lots of leg and head room, which is important cause im really tall. great sounding stereo too. Very Nice car. i recomend to anyone.

Good First Car — Its a nice car but has a lot of problems and you have to take it to a mazda delar for repair cause garages dont work on it . Its pretty expensive for parts but besides that not to exspencive. The car is boring to drive. It's a car for the new and old drivers.

My Thoughts — I like the 626 as a daily driver. It is not the fastest or most fun car I have every driven, but if you stand on the skinny pedal it will get on down the road. I wish I could say more.

Sweet — The car was a nice car to drive. It was cheap to own and the spare parts was also cheap. To bad that it did not have so much of an engine dought... But the car saved me when I crashed and survived...

its too slow and cant get any decent aftermarket parts

My 626 — my 626 is somewhat old but it looks good still and it has a decent ammount of kilometers for being a "97". i pimped it out as much as i could but there is no mods that you can buy online for this thing. its not really that fast either.

Super on gas, quiet, smooth engine

Cons

Rough ride at times, looks suck

Good Milage! — The manual tras. and 4 cylinder combined for over 30 mpg. Not much to look at but ran great. Rather trouble free up to 135,000 miles.
