You are in the Mazda 626
What is this discussion about?
Mazda 626, Sedan
#749 of 2044 New 2000 626 LX-V6s Still on the Lot?
Jul 22, 2001 (6:25 pm)
A Mazda dealer in my area currently has two "new" 2000 626 LX-V6 5-speeds with less than 100 miles still on the lot. The dealer's initial asking price for each is $15,995. Both don't have ABS/Traction Control but are equipped with the LX-V6 Premium Package:
- Wheels: 16 in. Alloy w/Locks
- Tires: P205/55R16 tires with 205mm width, 16.0" rim
- Power Moonroof
- 6-Way Power Driver's Seat
- Carpeted Floor Mats
- Heated Door Mirrors
- Anti-Theft Alarm
Is it just me or is this a great deal since the 2000 626 is almost identical to the 2001?! Any thoughts from the 626 experts out there?

It is not just you. Those are a steal.
In fact, if you decide not to buy one, let the folks here know about it, because someone will.

Where are you located? Better yet, where is the dealer?
Hmmmmm.... The thought has crossed my mind more than once to trade in my '99 automatic for a newer stick with power seats and moonroof. Although, I would like leather.

I've been reading alot about the Mazda 1994 626 transmission problems...
Does anyone know if there are any substantial problems with the 1990 626?
Jul 23, 2001 (9:17 pm)
the a/c system in the v6 626(ford). All mazdas are using ford diagnostics for obdII. the fuel tank and its components are ford. I'm sure i could come up with a few more if i really thought about it. By the way, if you like a car..buy it. Also, the 1990 626 was a better car than just about anything mazda makes today, but it is old and time catches up with us all. My 92 is still going strong and will be around for quite some time.

Our A/C has been OK, it's a 1995. We've only required one major unscheduled service, and that was for the fuel injection cleaning.
My former car, a 1991 Escort GT, leaked freon one year, and then lost its compressor the next. I hope our Mazda fares better, because those combined cost me over one grand.

check your facts...
The A/C compressor is made by Sanden and the Evaporator is made by Valeo.
I'll give it to you that the fuel pump is a Ford product, but the tank is made by Elsa Corp.
The PCM is made by Visteon a former Ford company. By the way, you have to admit that the capabilities of WDS blow away the previous system and I'd much rather have my vehicle diagnosed with that than the NGS.

the a/c system is ford- whomever makes the parts for ford is another story. havent looked lately, but since 93 all the fuel tanks in 62's were made by ford. I definitely wont disagree about diagnostic ease when it comes to the ngs tester. It is the best system going, unfortunately ford does not want to give mazda all the capabilites that the ngs allows the ford techs to use. the original question was what parts of the 626 were ford. I wasnt making any comments on whether these items are good or bad. the cruise control unit should be ford in any newer 626 and also the wiper motor.

Maltb: wow, what kind of source do you have at your disposal to get quick facts like that?

One would expect to see motorcraft plastered on that compressor if it was a Ford system. Ahh, what would I know anyway.
