I have a 96 626 that has 125,000 miles. I purchased my car in 98 with 60,000 miles. In may of 2000 I had to replace the oxygen sensor. I have also had to replace the left front axel and the right cv joint boot in Feb. 2003. Now I have replace my entire transmission which is going to cost around 2300. I had no indications that I had transmission problems until it just quit. On my way to work my car just stopped moving on the interstate. When I pressed the accelerator it wouldn't pull. So I got off the road safely and attempted to see what the problem was. The car was not moving forward or backwards. I had to have it towed to the transmission shop to be told the wonderful news. I have been doing research and I'm finding this car has lots of problems. I am also having problems with oil leaking and occasionally the accelerator pedal appears to be hard to press as if it's stuck for a few minutes or it's real tight. I would not advise anyone to purchase a Mazda. Don't even take it if it's free because it would be cheaper to purchase a car. I realize my car has 125,000 miles but I had a Nissan that I drove 180,000 miles for before major problems occurred. I'm filing this complaint in hopes something can be done because this is a major problem.

While driving the car on the expressway or anywhere for that matter the car engine light comes on and the "over drive off" light begins to blink and my overdrive turn off. I usually have to pull over to the shoulder or at a red light and turn the car off and back on to fix it. This is very unsafe and annoying because it happens almost everyday. I have to do this during rush hour on I-294 in chicago. I am reluctant to take it to Mazda repair because they charge $100 just to take the car in the shop and they try to find little ways to slap on a bigger bill. I had them change my transmission fluid and a week later it leaked and they told me there was a hole in the transmission. Apparently it was not there before the transmission fluid change and they did not notice it during. So I had them just refill it and I added sealant from auto zone. I checked my transmission fluid weekly and its just fine. Engine light comes and goes at will. There seems to be a problem with the computer chip or something which is Mazda's fault and I should not have to pay to replace or fix. Everything on the car is stocked and I maintain the car better than Mazda suggests. I check all fluids, oil change every 2000 miles, etc. . . I know that many people (thousands of them) that have the same problems with the engine lights and the "over drive off" light blinking.
