Hello, I am writing to inform you of a transmission problem I have with my madza 626. I have taken it to my mechanic and have talked to 3 others and they all tell me the same thing. This is a common problem with the automatic transmission on the madza 626. I bought my car new in 2001 and it has almost 99,000 miles. I have been told that it will cost me $2500-3000 to fix it. My mechanic says it will be cheaper for me in the long run to trade it in and get a new car. I am forced to get a new car because my 2001 madza 626 does not run. This car needs to be recalled.

626 Mazda LX 2001, 46,000 miles, transmission failure. Dealer diagnosed as requiring full exchange (rebuilt) transmission. Originally quoted at $2,400. However after extensive complaint Mazda representative assisted w/charging for labor $700 only. Mazda is being unfair with this situation...no car should be having this kind of failure at 46,000 miles. Looking to have entire job warranted...warranty had just expired by 3 days when incident occurred.

I have a 2001 Mazda 626. The over drive light began to flash, within 15 minutes I was at the dealer. I need a new transmission. My car is not showing any signs of failure. The light keeps flashing. I put an external transmission radiator and the light has not turned on. I have to replace my brakes 4 times in six months. They say it is my driving. How can this be? once it took them a week to put brake pads. That Monday they said it needed rotors and did not have the parts. That Friday I picked up my car and they said it did not need rotors after all!!! they rented me a car, 2 months later my credit card was charged for the weeks rental. Besides this the national city mile of cars wescott Mazda-Kia dealer are sexist and discriminate against women. The customer service guy (tom) called me an ass and never apologized even after I told his boss.
