Great car but expensive to keep on road

I had a 626 97 for about a year and a half that I had purchased second hand at high miles over 200,000km nearly up to the 300,000km mark and after its last service it unfortunately failed on me with 5 major parts one by on very quickly went and was a $3000 fix more then the car was worth so it went to another that had the $ and passion to fix it.

The car was great to drive very low to the ground very gutsy and powerful a but not so great and fule, it is also a beauty to park and turns well. If you are looking at getting a 97 be willing to invest $ in it as it maybe cheap to bye but not in the long run.

Zippy fun car

I have a 1996 Mazda626 Deluxe (Manual). I bought it second hand in 2010 with 176000 kms on odo. Now odo is 212000 Kms. I did not face any problems with the car except for once I had to get the fuel pump changed. I service it every six months (Oil, Filter). I am very happy with the performance and the dynamics of this car. This car does not have ABS or traction but if you are a good driver you would know the limits of your car. This car communicates with the driver in a good way and is a perfect balance of dynamics and comfort. Very Happy with it...:-)

Good

Just love this little car!!! For a second hand car it offers all the mod cons of central locking, air cond and other comforts that I didnt have in my much older car. A terrific reliable little vehicle.
Fuel economy, light power steering, get up and go!!!
Its a bit of a plain jane and the centre console is in a really silly place right above the hand brake....? A bit smaller than I expected once you put 2 baby seats in. Show details

Hi My mazda 626 was going great, after stopping for 5 minutes it would not start, not even a click, all windows went up & down , battery tested ok , racq checked it said looks like immobiliser quit. What could have caused this?

Hi Mal, I'm no expert but if yours is a manual then you can try push start. If it starts then it could be the starter motor. Sounds like a starter motor has worn out. But as I said I'm no expert.. Good luck

I'm pretty sure that the guy would have checked all the fuses as well. Bcos some times blown fuse could be the culprit
