I've been driving my 1995 MX-3 V-6 for 6 years now and I'd rank it with any coupe of any make, price range or year! Peppy, great looking, reliable, like any car of the Mazda line. Give it regular mechanical maintenance and a little body TLC and it will love you back. A Porsche tried to race it on the highway the other day--and lost.

Beautiful car, especially in Brilliant Black (which I obviously own). Very roomy for such a small car. Great handling, great performance for such small displacement. I have very little rust and it is 13 years old! A/C is still going, that is a plus for me. Only problem I've had with this car, is that the valve cover leaked a little oil onto the manifold cover and smoked a bit (which could happen to any car), but some gasket sealant can solve that problem. I've only sat in the back seat of my car once, just to see how it felt. They could be a little more reclined, but I'm not riding in the back so it's not my problem... HA HA!

For a 10 year old car, with 110k miles on it, this has given me fewer problems than every Civic my friends or I have owned. Nothing beyond routine maintenance and gives me better mileage than a comparable Corolla. Not to mention the most important part - it's a lot more fun to drive than either of them.

I bought this car new February of '96.
I've had very little problems with the
mechanics of the vehicle. Mostly just
routine maintenance (oil change, tires,
battery) although earlier this year I
did have to replace the right half
shaft. It was only a $120 repair and
considering I've had the vehicle for
more than 7 years I'd say that's not
bad. I will be in the market for a new
car soon..but I'm not parting with my
MX-3. I will probably keep it till it
won't drive anymore and fix it up with
a body kit or something next year.
