1990 Mazda 626 from North America
Zoom zoom to the bank
Wheel cylinder was replaced at no cost.
It also shakes when in drive = shiatsu.
Its almost down to a conspiracy how this car is underrated.
Needless to say, I stumbled upon this jewel through circumstance of losing my beloved 300e to engine trouble.
I tell you if the economy stays deprived, buy 1990 626 if you can find one. I haven't touched anything in a year of ownership except for oil changes. I plug my intuition, it obeys without any treats. The 2.2 OHV 12v direct injection with 140hp is more than adequate to gallop through very athletically with every and any competitor in this class.
At 260k, this car still begs for more spanking; at 120kph the rpm is still under 3 grand with the red line at 6g's, while idling quiet to a fault, you won't know it's running if you were standing next to it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
