OK, we've had a lowest miles poll, and a highest miles poll. So how about a poll on how many miles you've been driving MX-6s? How many miles have you put on your car, or how many miles have you spent with multiple MX-6s/626s combined?

I got my first MX-6, an LX when I was 16. I put about 20,000 on it over a years time before it was picked up by a tornado and thrown in a creek bed. I've had my GT since '96, I bought it at 97k miles, and it's got 193k now. So that's 96k on the GT + 20k on the LX = 116,000 miles and 6 years spent with MX-6s.
I never drove my 626, it just sat in the driveway until I stripped it.

:eek:



Anyway, I bought my first mx-6 (a white LX) in '97 with about 68k miles on it. I drove it daily until May 2000, when I signed it over to Kennymx6. It had about 142k miles on it.

So far I've had my 626 since May 2000, and I got it with 147k miles on it. Currently it has about 163k. So thats a total of 90,000 mx-6 miles. :D

Well, I guess I'm the rookie of the whole group. I've only had my '88MX6 GT turbo for about 1000 miles. I stuck an ACT clutch in it when I got it, which now has the 1000 miles on it. All I have to say is that I have loved every d*mn mm of that 1000 miles so far. Every inch of asphalt I eat up in the car brings a whole new level of hapiness I never knew existed. Gotta love turbos's. Got Boost?

the good thing where i live in NZ is that everythings so close. i live in one of the biggest cities in New Zealand and its only got like 300000 ppl or so. that means all our cars have low miles.
my cars on 144kms was on 132kms when i got it a year ago at the start of September so ive only bout 7-8000miles in a year. My dads car is a high mileage user and it still only does 25000km a year.
