Mazda 626 Reviews from Lithuania
1993 Mazda 626 GLX 1.8i fuel
Total reliable and practical
Clutch replaced at 150000 km.
Handbrake is unpredictable.
1.8i engine is too small and too weak for this car.
Fuel consumption is great. In the city it takes up to 9 L/100 km and on a highway (90-150 km/h) it takes 6.5-8 L/100km.
There is a lot of room for the driver (I'm 185cm) but not enough legroom for the back passengers.
Handling is not perfect but the car is stable on high speed even on gravel.
Looks great even after 8 years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1986 Mazda 626 LX 1.6
Don't buy a > 10 years old Mazda!
Constant engine overheating problems, head gasket was changed two times.
The camshaft and all piston rings were changed.
Rear wheel bearings were changed.
Front brake discs had to be changed.
Electrical gadgets are failing - for example when a door is open the clock resets to 1:00pm, head-light beeper stopped working and so on.
All four shock absorbers were changed, and some other suspension problems had to be fixed.
Clutch disc has worn out.
I had lots of problems with this car, but mostly due to its age and mileage. When it starts falling apart, nothing can stop it.
Overall impression is still not so bad: it is a comfortable family car (although not much space for legs - newer models are better).
