Lots of features in an attractive package. Reliability unfortunately has declined just as Consumer Reports has indicated in the 6. Throttle problems and now a malfunction in the Bose stereo. A few rattles as well. My previous '90 MX-6 GT was a better car, actually the best car I ever owned. May trade it for a Toyota. I bought it due to the safety ratings.
Styling, standard features, 8 airbags, hatchback versatility. Finally a hatch. Handling is superb. I feel very safe in this car. Came with the best tires Michelin Mxm. Steering wheel controls are great.
Seats are uncomfortable; very stiff. Should get better gas mileage. There is NO LUMBAR SUPPORT in the seats. Better reliability. American made; that's why quality has declined.
