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.
Great style, shape, and paint. It's red and still bright and shiney like new.
Bad gas mileage, Mechanical problems to many to name . Drinks oil like crazy. Electrical problems .
i have had mazda mx6's since i was fifteen years old all of them have been the gt turbo model except one but i put the turbo kit on it love the car its body resembles a nisan skyline which is the best car in the world anyway i love it never left me walking
all wheel disc brakes,electronic vents,power glass sun roof,all wheel stearing,very fast with minor mods,auto adjusting suspension.
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!
better piping to intercooler and
turbo, mazda should of used a MAP
sensor instead of VAF.
And mazda should've of put the
Japanese Mx6 engine 16v DOHC.
170hp/130lbs trq. redlines at 8000rpm
and has way better top end power vs.
our 12v sohc engine even turbo.
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 fujitsu stereo is great and the
turbo is all the fun for this car
