I've had this car for 13 years now and have replaced the auto tranny neutral switch, ignition coil, EGR, fan switch, radiator, and distributor. I love the auto tranny shift points but the idle vibration is a bit rough. The exhaust manifold nuts need to be retightened occasionally, but the car is otherwise very reliable and quick. It has almost 150,000 miles on everything but the engine, which has about 60,000 miles on it (previous owner overheated the first one). It will be hard for me to sell this car, but I think a good replacement will be a Mazdaspeed MX5 (now that I don't need to transport kids around).

It is a great looking little car . Especially for as old as it is. Great paint and style, but it has been nothing but a money pit. I have spent hundreds this last year and am on foot as we speak. I would love to be driving it, but I am tired of calling tow trucks.

In 4 years i have owned my 6, I have
never brought it to the mechanic. No
problems with my baby. The car is fun
to drive especially when your turbo
kicks in around 2600rpm. Only problem
i have notice is that there has to be
at least 4 feet of piping from the
turbo to the intercooler to the
throttle. Too much bottleneck, If you
free that up it'll be much much better!

I have owned for 13 years. Great car if
oil change is done every 3000 miles.
Few problems like the antenna (after 12
years working fine). Powerful car that
needs to be driven responsibly or be
prepared for a dozen tickets every year.
I'll keep mine until fall appart.

the best car ever (considering cost).
i have owned it for 7 years. now have
208,000 miles on it. never had
problems. every time i get into it, i
have fun. interior and exterior designs
are great. it is roomy, even for 4
people (try getting into an eclipse).
seats are still comfortable after 13
years of use. it is fast (145 hp, 190
torque). best of all: top speed of 133
mph. not many cars can do that. even
the expensive ones. if you can find one
in good shape, buy it (manual
