Amazing Vehicle for the Price

This car is amazing for short. There is a little more road noise than expected. This is my first vehicle and I absolutely love it. I drive it to school, work, and home everday. I only have to fill it up about once a week. Overall, i would recommend this car to a first time driver.

Very good and cost-effective car!

by from Dallas on December 2, 2009

Very good and cost-effective car! Nice looking like Bentz, solid body, generally good performance, and better price than most similar cars!

I can say this car is a good car to have it for transporting stuff like to places within one or two hours. However, this car doesn't seems to have the great big power when you do the "kick-down"...All it have is the sound but not the speed. Also the CD player is not that good because it comes from the manufacture and so the CD player cannot read MP3 files...so which i went to get a new player so it can read the disc. So if you are not a music person this car will suit you unless you want to pay more money for better quality things. Overall I will say this is a good car.

Although it can be a good car, its appearance is nothing to write home about and the reliability factor is suspect. My 2000 model has stranded me twice in the 14 months that I have owned it, most recently for a broken transmission cable that is going to cost me upwards of $400.00 to repair. While searching the internet for descriptions of this problem, I encountered an alarming number of reported problems with the transmission on this model - none of the problems have been acknowledged by Mazda and none of the owners have been recompensed by the company or by dealerships. My transmission has yet to fail me, but I wouldn't take the risk. Buy another car - my next will be a Honda or a Toyota.

The 626 4cyd. auto is a good all around car for it's class. Avg.22-24 mpg city, and 26-30 hwy. Had the car for 8 years, if buying one again would get extended warranty for any thing over 70,000 miles. Repairs can be expensive. These are basic transportation and should be veiwed as such. They can be unconfort- able on long trips. Power is good but at highspeeds iffy when passing. Makes good work or student car. Would buy another but only if the interior was up graded to better seats. The car should be maintained by dealer and have extended warranty, make sure when buying that all regular maintance has been done according to manufacture.

Last one I owned I sold with over 240,000 miles. These cars will run forever with just regular oil changes. Styling is timeless and comes with a standard accessory package that beats all. They could have offered optional wood grain, but you can purchase separately.
