I have had my 626 for about 6 months now. We bought the car used but I have to say that we have really enjoyed the car. Although the exterior is a little boring the performance and comfort more than makes up for it. The car is quiet and has a very sturdy feeling to it. It also has great get up and go. We've had no problems. We took the car on a long road trip and it was very comfortable and handled well on steep and mountainous roads. We love it!
Swing fans, very comfortable seats, huge trunk, fold down back seats, no awkward blind spots, good stereo system. Great heater and AC, we live in an extreme hot and cold climate and it has performed well.
When the seats fold down the opening is made smaller by panels on back of trunk. Transmission is a little touchy, when going from reverse to drive you must stop completely (recommended anyway for any car) or car "jumps".
