1988 Mazda 626 2.2 litre injected from North America
Comfortable, well-rounded car
The rear stabilizer links have broken; replacing these also required replacing the forward arm.
The B.A.C. valve and throttle position sensor malfunctioned, and they needed to be replaced. This was a very expensive repair ($1100).
The right rear brake line blew, and the brake fluid cylinder on the right rear blew previous to the brake line.
My car has a very comfortable ride. It handles very responsively on the turns, but it does not have very quick acceleration in either power or economy mode.
I really like the option of outside air vent or fan. I also like the tachometer being included even though it is automatic. The seat belt clips, however, have broken on both front seats.
Repairs are very expensive with parts that must be ordered through the dealership.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
