Pros

The car can flat get up out of there.  Has a very easy to change oil filter.   Very few mechanical problems.

Cons

odd-wheel size makes new tires expensive.

Style And Speed In A Sedan — Ya get the power of a RX-8 and the looks of a 929. If you want a more luxurious Lancer Evo. without much dropoff in performance the Mazda 6 series may be your ticket. There is some but surprisingly little (or least to me).

Electrical problems, transmission problems.

Nice, But Not A Reliable, Well-made Car. — The Mazda 626 was a nice-looking car, but it was not reliable. Every few months, something went wrong with it, whether it was something small or large. I had to have the transmission and power pack replaced. The timing belt broke. It cost more to keep the car than it did to buy it.

Pros

gas mileage, it fits everything i need it to. THE TRUNK IS HUGE!

Cons

my rear main seal is broke so im leaking oil all over my catalytic converter & i have a hole in my exhaust pipe infront of my resonator so it makes a whole bunch of noise.

45

3500 — it has needed a few repairs, a new o2 sensor, needs a an exhaust pipe weld , a few rust spots the kinda came out of nowhere, ive had to replace the air intake boot....which was a pain in my a**! and it does burn oil like its its job! i love the gas mileage now that the o2 sensor is in, to a full tank i get a little over 400 miles, acceleration isnt top of the line but it works, i cant say much about thge brakies, i need new ones, but it does brake very well, no pull or shaking. it handles very well too, the interior is nice, the front buckets arent to comfy for long (8hr) road trips but then again what would be comfy for 8hours straight? i love my little car, it does have it downfalls but the good outweigh the bad....if you find one of these cars for sale buy it!

Pros

Comfortable interior.

Cons

Bad transmission.  Weak 4 cylinder engine.

Tranny Problems — The automatic I4 models from around the '99 model year have known problems with the transmission. Mazda used a weaker transmission from the Ford Probe in this model. As a result, I had to get the transmission replaced no less than 3 times before getting rid of the piece.

Nice And Reliable Until Over 100k — Bought the car new. No problems other than paying the dealer top $ for 60k maintenance. However, after 100k car developed problems with transmission, sensors and other little things.

Pros

Pros: I love the red cherry color with the tan leather seats. The seats are comfortable and I absolutely love the power front seats being that I'm only 5 ft tall, I can easily slide my seat up. Oh and can I say power windows are a hit.

Cons

To be completely honest I haven't actually driven the car yet because I'm doing some repairs slowly but surely.

Other Than The Fact The Repairs Are Quite Expensive, I Love It. — As far as the car's acceleration, braking and handling I don't actually know because I'm still doing some repairs to it (head gasket, fuel pump , brakes, etc.). The car did come with a fully equipped Kenwood 1800 watts amp professionally installed in the trunk that was pretty loud and nice. It also came with some nice shiny rims by the brand Bigg Wheels.

Pros

Peppy engine with some decent speed.

Cons

Mazdas are notorious for having bad trannies.

45

Decent Reliable Car — I've had the car for quite a while now and it's actually for sale. It's been a great car and it was a peppy little thing. I've had a blast with it. I had that SOB at 135mph so it didn't do too bad. It's just time to retire it to someone else.

Pros

Good economicle and reliable ride

Cons

Wind sensitive /sidewind...

25

Mazda-bazda ;) — Lookes like an old-mans car, but is a very reliable ride. Economicle diezel. Drives good, but wind-sensitive. Could have move umpf (horsepower). Can be upgraded from 115 to approx 140 horsepower, but is costly. I would bye it next time with full auto- climate. Practical car, but not much fun driving. Cheap in parts.

Pros

comfortable, decent performance

Cons

unreliable with high miles, fwd

45

Decent But Boring — It's pretty practical and reliable until the miles get really high. Mine's been almost trouble free until around 170k when everything goes to hell. Luckily mine has a proper manual tranny so it's not too slow. I also hate front wheel drive, but that can be said about most cars.
