    Mazda 626 — I like the pep it had. LOVED the Moon Roof and ABS option. OK gas mileage. Needed LOTS of maintenance. Expensive car, I will not ever own a Mazda again. It was a good car, but I would never, ever want to own another.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Moon Roof and ABS brakes

    Cons: Poor MPG, Expensive, bad tranny.

    626 — Day 1 = a plan old 98 Mazda 626, a car you see everyday. Last day I had it = Slammed, Mazda Millennium rims 17"s, 20% Tints, 20,000k H.I.D.'s, 2001 rear lights with new emblems and alot more. I tryed to make the car feel like a newer car. I also had a new engine and tranny put in. Appearance wise, the car looks great. Performance wise, the car was in the low category. This car was just a cruiser. And I miss it alot!

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

    Pros: Looks, great car to chill in

    Cons: Performance!, most trannys on these cars go

    My Baby - Mazda 626 Wagon — Engine - strong, fast response. Handling - superb (also becase I've got 17 inch rims). Quality - convinient and durable materials. Appearance - exterior styling is conservative, but nice. Extremly big trunk - possibility to sleep there :-) I've buy new rims, window tinting, black coloured rear lights, sport exhaust, and many more...

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

    Pros: Big, fast, comfortable, good looking

    Cons: Little rust around rear fenders

    Ick — 3rd transmission. Oil leaks. Nothing good to say about this car. Issues abound since I bought it 6 years ago. Drive it off the lot and the tranny dropped. Even the weatherstrip never stayed in place. Minnesota car. Poor handling. Very poor reliability. Crappy tranny. Avoid the 98 model.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: nothing.  

    Cons: poor design, expensive maintanence

    My Second Car — a great car absolutly fantastic its like a sports car but without the sports car insurance and it has only four cylinders and is lightweight so it gets great gas mileage everything about this car is just amazing if you want a really good car but for not too much definently consider a 626

    Pros: Great Performence, Great Miles per Gallon

    Cons: cant legally race it

    Older Mazda Still A Good Deal — In addition to getting great gas mileage, this is a very dependable, comfortable and stylish car. It has an all leather interior for comfort and durability. It handles well, shifts easily and so far has only required routine maintenance to keep it running smoothly. I took this car to Tennesse last year and had no problems at all.

    Pros: Gas mileage, comfort, dependability, appearance

    Cons: A.C. no longer works

    My 1998 Mazda 626 Lx — Bought this car for my wife. then I found out it was built by Ford. I have spent more time doing repairs then driving. I can't wait to sell this thing. Have to change fuel pump again, second time in a year. Don't buy a Mazda made by Ford. For sale 1998 626 Best offer.

    Pros: Nothing

    Cons: Trans blew up, rear strut bushings, fuel pump(twice)

    My Car Now! — This car has amazing quality... it is built well, performs well, its not a stick shift, but it accelerates like a sports car... the acceleration, even if u rnt stepping on the gas quickly, feels like u r jack-rabbiting ur restart.... its awesome.... the breaking is touchy, but it works... its good.... the handling is really fun... its easy to drive and easy to get used to..... it needed repair once because the muffler was bad, but it is fixed now... it used to sound like a racecar and almost make u deaf... but its really quiet now.... its not all pimped out or anything but its pretty sweet... it looks like the car is a sports car wannabe... it goes up to 150!! thats fast!.... my family payed a couple thousand dollars for it... and the gas mileage is decent.... its like 26 to 29 mpg....

    Pros: Great handling, performance, goes really fast.. etc

    Cons: repaired once and air conditioning dont work...

    626 — auto eats into my limited power good reliability fair handling but can understeer smooth output no major dramas needs bigger exhaust and stiffer suspension could do with xenons prefer manual cars for control and power output benefit from cruise control and ABS and CD player needs to be cleaned more regularly

    Pros: positive

    Cons: negative
