I bought this car 5 years ago and it had over 140,000 miles on it.
I have never had a serious problem with it.
it's so much fun to drive.
I highly recommend it to anyone.
Great value, very reliable and great design.

My wife bought her MX3 GS new in 1994, and it still has under 40,000 miles on it and is still like a new car.
Granted she has not put a lot of miles on it, and it is garaged all the time, but this has honestly been one of the absolute most trouble-free cars I've ever seen.
Add to that that it is fun to drive,
looks good, it's comfortable and relatively economical.
After 18 years of ownership my wife still loves her MX3 and never even considers that she might want somethng newer.
Only regular upkeep (oil changes, 1 set of tires, 2 batteries, 1 tune-up and we did the 60K scheduled maintenance at 30K just because of its age), and 1 minor repair (cracked air hose).
Hard to beat

This is a great little v6 engine. I
bought it used with 183,000kms and it
now has 200,000.... i have not had a
single engine related problem and it
runs good and pulls hard. Also has
original tranny, and at 200,000 kms,
thats one good reason why imports are
great and GM's SUCK !!!
this car is SO fun to drive. while it
has its fair share of mechanical
issues and kinks. it is still
incredibly reliable, and should last a
longggg time if maintained properly.
if you plan to buy this car do your
research! mx-3.com has a tech forum
which details most of the common
problems found on this car. most of
the problems are minor. that aside,
the car is zippy, its sporty, and its
FUN. it handles like its on a RAIL.
not only that it gets good mileage,
and it's easy to maintain. i wouldn't
trade my mx-3 in for anything out
there today! :)

I have had my Mx-3 for a year now and I
have had nothing but fun with it. The
only real work done to it was the usual
water pump and timing belt
replacement. The car is economical and
sporty at the same time. I love the
gas milage compared to the typical gas
hogs. I would suggest this car to
anyone, especially those looking for a
car you don't see everyday.

This car is very reliable with a
unique look and a good balance of
pickup and power while maintaining 25-
30 mpg. I replaced a rusted muffler
at around 50k miles, both CV joints at
around 60k miles and the roters and
pads at around 73k miles. I consider
all of those to be standard
