I was wondering how many miles a 626 lasts?
Your 626 has three major liabilities, two partially related. Otherwise they're good cars if treated well as BW said.
1. Weak lifters (actually hydraulic valve lash adjusters)
2. Weak oil pumps (keep your oil clean, at that mileage I would recommend an oil additive)
3. Assuming it's automatic trans, the shift cable
Other than that it's they're solid 200k cars.
