I bought my 626 for my daily commuter with 206,000 miles on her. She is a non turbo, 5 speed manual, she now has 300,500 miles on her and still running strong. Just recently I have had to replace alternator, starter, coil, timing belt and heater blower motor, but what the hay, she has earned all that. I drive her like she's stolen every day, and the worst mileage I've ever gotten once was 29 mpg, the best ever on a road trip has been 42 mpg. I average about 35.5 mpg daily at highways speeds up to 80 mph. I wouldn't trade this girl for anything in the world. I would recommend a 1991 626 LX to anyone. My kids love riding in her because she is so peppy and fast. This is just an all around great car!
Has all the torque and speed of a Mazda 3 (driven several) and still gets better gas mileage than most new cars on the road.
i agree with you all the way
it was my first car
even though it had swiss cheese for a frame it still held all the potholes and bumps
had to replace the clutch slave and master cylinders
had a tire blow out, the spare had a blow out
so i got rid of it because it was costing my too muc money
now i drive a 1999 Chevy Astro
i would totally buy another 91 626 LX
