1989 Mazda 626 GT 2.0L 16v from Australia and New Zealand
Great car in every way
Radiator split on top and had to be replaced. This I did myself and found it easy to replace.
Oil cooler had to be replaced. Didn't know this model had this attached as the library manual I looked at didn't show this cooler in any of it's diagrams. I replaced the head gasket, thinking it was the problem first.
Have had the clutch plates replaced twice in the time I have owned it.
Great reliable car, as you can see from the kilometers I have done.
The has good performance. You can fly along on the open road at a great number of knots for hours at a time.
Petrol consumption is excellent except when you really put your foot down. I mean when traveling at 140 K's plus.
Full electrics and a sunroof make it very nice to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
