The second gen MX-6, with its unique looks and sporty handling, enjoys a small but loyal following nearly two decades after it was discontinued in 1997.
I bought mine with 93,000 miles, put another 20,000 on the clock (which included a NY-CA round trip), and sold it for what I paid without incurring any major expenses. I liked it a lot and actually felt a twinge of seller's remorse when I let it go.
Since it shares the same underpinnings as the Ford Probe, replacement parts are inexpensive and not hard to find.
It's basically a reliable and fun ride with a few quirks. Offers great bang for your buck, but they're getting harder to find in good condition as time goes on.

I've owned 3 of these cars over the course of a decade, with the most recent one being a 93 LS with 130k on the clock. replaced CV's and boots on front axle immediately as they were bad, then drove it for 4 yrs without doing a SINGLE thing to it, no maintenance, no repairs. (except a cracked radiator tank, my fault. That took me all of 10 minutes to replace) the car ran like a screaming banshee, always and never left me stranded. sold it for $900 (paid $1,000) and the person who bought it drives it almost 400 miles a week for work. still runs strong and has given him no problems.

Bought this beauty two yrs ago and only parted with her because I needed four doors. The only mechanical issue I really had with this car was an overheating problem, due to the extreme abuse she put up with and all the seals needed replaced. This car LOVES to go faster, never happier than when she's accelerating, even at 80mph!(I've had both the 4 cyl and the 6 cyl and they're both the same) The shifting couldn't be smoother. The exterior looks great too, despite being her age... And around the curves you couldn't find a grippier ride. Thank you, Mazda I will be looking for another mx6 in the future :)

I love this car. It looks great and is fast enough for me I've been getting about 18 MPG City and as high as 33 MPG on the highway. I keep the car as God intended it. Just added a Hood Bra, SUNROOF WIND DEFLECTOR NEW and Headlight Covers.

Got it close to 90,000 miles. Had a ton of things wrong. The radiator, the Steering system, the clutch went bad the wheel bearings went bad and made terrible noises. Anyway when I got all that fixed, the car gave me two solid years (except for a timing belt). Then came the problems again, Struts, Speedometer, Starter, Horn, Airbag, moonroof blablabla. I just kept on driving with those problems. The drive wasn't bad and I do like the 2.5. Great gas mileage and very smooth. Could pick up some speed too if I needed it. Would go to 130 in a heartbeat though 140 would take a while!. In short, a good looking car with a good engine but a mechanical nightmare!

Have always been a Dodge and Pontiac girl, until 1998, when I drove my first Mazda mx6, it was love at first gear! About a year ago my lil pretty was park outside my home, whem a van came along and totaled her out, I cried like a baby! She had never given me a problem in 10 years despite her 180,000 miles. She drove me and my daughter safely 2000 miles to my mothers funeral just a month before, all the way we drove 80-90mph! Last week for my 50th birthday I found another, same great speed, head turning style and ageless beauty, the legend lives on......ZOOM ZOOM!!
The 88-92 MX-6's were very reliable. The 93 was reliable. The 94-97 MX-6 4 cylinder auto's had the Ford Tranny just like the 626 4 cyl auto's did and that spelled alot of transmission problems for Maz...
