1986 Mazda 626 2.0 turbo Fuel Injected from North America


This is one of the best cars I have owned


One of the fuel injectors went to crap.

Engine was missing badly when I got it it was misfiring, changed spark plugs cap and rotor. that fixed it.

Emergency brake cable snapped; $50 to replace.

General Comments:

This car is really fast for a 4 cylinder.

Especially when the turbo kicks in.

It starts in the cold just as easily as it starts in 100 degree weather.

This thing never fails to put me back in my seat.

The turning radius is unbelievable. I got her to turn around on a 1 lane without having to back up.

The bucket seats are really comfortable.

Overall I LOVE this car and would recommend it to anyone; although nothing is better than the 87 Nissan 200SX I had before it.

1986 Mazda 626 LX 2.0 turbo from Trinidad and Tobago


A reasonable dream car!


The usual maintenance jobs, the first few years, (brake pads, belts, hoses, etc...).

Changed the entire engine, (it began to consume oil).

Did a 'body job', changed some body parts because of my negligent driving.

General Comments:

This car runs like hell! Since installing the new 'turbocharged' engine, man I feel like I'm 'Vin Diesel' from the Fast and the Furious!

Lowered and tunned suspension, upgraded brakes, makes it fun to drive!

Only problems are there are no parts (like sensors, turbos, gaskets) for my model in my country! And it sucks!

1986 Mazda 626 LX 2.0 litre turbo from North America


This car Goes real fast when tuned up


The alternator stopped working.

The electric shocks were in need of exchange.

The car needed a tune up to increase performance and efficiency.

General Comments:

The car now runs really great and I really love it.

When the turbo kicks in the car just goes real fast.

I have equipped the car with Nitrous Oxide Systems and if the car is well equipped it will handle performance equipment very well.

I love this car and I would buy another one any day.

I bought this car and I was inspired by the movie "Fast and the Furious" and so I began the journey of making my car a car that I will enjoy.

If you buy one of these cars you will be satisfied, I guarantee it.

You may have to spend money to tune them up and fix them, but it is well worth it in the end.

Also, the police will not suspect anything because the car is a sedan.

1986 Mazda 626 Turbo GT ? from North America


I loved this car I want another one


Things that had gone wrong with the car, were pretty much normal wear and tear, brakes, clutch, the only major problem was the turbo went, so I by passed it and drove it with no turbo.

General Comments:

I would not say this was a performance car, but even without the turbo it still drove at 90mph + rather comfortably.

I bought this car for $700 (US) when my mustang got wrecked to drive over the winter and while I was rebuilding the mustang.

For the 3 years or so I owed this car it was relatively maintenance free except for the clutch, brakes, and turbo, I only changed the oil once that was when I bought the car.

I drove this car from North Eastern Ohio on many occasions to South West Indiana, a sum of around 500+ miles with no problems what so ever.

The mile per gallon where excellent.

1986 Mazda 626 Super Deluxe Coupe 2.0 Carb from Australia and New Zealand


A cheap reliable easy to drive car


The engine needed to be rebuilt at 200,000 KM, since then the rocker cover has leaked oil. The flywheel has a couple of broken teeth so when I start it, it sounds like there is a cat under the bonnet. The electrics (sunroof, windows and central locking) have all stuffed up. And the rear demister just stopped working. The hand brake light and the tail light and the stop light warnings are always on.

General Comments:

The car is great for Mums, but if you want performance the only way I get it is with a couple of MC Donalds trays and the handbrake. It handles great and is very comfortable.
