Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7
"This was little old lady car sold to my daughter for college. So only 2 owners. No accidents.. Super low mileage. Back tires have low tread. Starts up every time, even in the dead of winter buried under a foot of snow. No dents. Sun roof not working but repairable. A few tears in roof upholstery but can be fixed. Brakes repaired in 2014. Have paper work. A great car that my daughter used for college. Needs some exhaust pipe work. Roars when started, then quiets down. A good reliable engine. Would be great with some minor repairs."
"bought this little 626 back in 2001 and it is the car that won't die! We now have 299,000 miles on it and have never had to make a major repair. Still gets better than 31 mpg and the manual transmission is still as strong as ever! Replaced tie rods and cv boots, had a new clutch at around 240,000 miles but NEVER had a major problem. Paint faded badly at around 175,000 miles and the headliner is looking rough but cosmetic issues have been the only issues that we have had so far. I even bought another Mazda based on the great experience we have had with this one!"
