Mazda 626 2.5L KLDE V6 0-100km/h and Acceleration
Standard 121kW 2.5l 1995 Mazda 626 with a squeaky clutch pedal and worn out
brake pads (I changed them later that day). The only thing it's got is a
crappy K&N pod filter. I couldn't power shift into 2nd as the clutch just
slips... If the clutch was good and the tires were good I'd say it'd do
consistent runs of 7.5seconds to 100km/h which isn't bad for a $1500 18
year old first car.
Note: Engine mounts are also screwed.

Redline Review: 2015 Mazda CX-5
No longer just a re-badge Ford, Mazda starts from scratch and builds us a
compact SUV with the soul of a Miata. The 2015 CX-5 has all the traditional
strengths: a roomy cabin, good fuel efficiency, an excellent driving
position, and good cargo space. Only a lack of an upgrade engine and
slightly dated cabin tech keep it from being the best in the segment.
