The 1999 626 LX has many fans who say the car looks good, has a roomy interior, is enjoyable to drive, and gets good gas mileage.

The 1999 Mazda 626 LX V6 is the upper midrange model of the sedan. Upgrading to the LX gets power windows and air conditioning, and a sunroof is an available option. The V6 engine has 2.5 liters and 170 horsepower.
1999 626 LX V6 owners seem to have two vastly different experiences. Those who bought the manual transmission love the car, saying it is fun to drive, lasts forever, looks good, and has a comfortable interior. However, those who bought the automatic often have transmission failure, which seems to set off a string of additional problems.

Most drivers are happy with their 1999 Mazda 626 ES V6s, saying they like the peppy engine; the comfortable, stylish interior; and the relatively good gas mileage. However, those who purchased the automatic seem, for the most part, to have regretted that decision, with many saying they have suffered a transmission failure, and some having to replace the transmission numerous times.
