I purchased this car from a family member for $1, and it runs like I paid $20,000 for it. Running it at 65 mph average speed, I get 36 mpg. Running at 80 mph, I still get as much as 34 mpg. As far as mechanical problems go, I have yet to have any, and the engine is still as powerful as the first day on the road. The car also gets attention because there are not many left on the streets anymore. At the current selling value of $2,000, if you see one, grab it. The money you will save in fuel costs is outstanding.
Sporty appearance, gas mileage, strongly built engine and body.
I purchased the MX6 coupe from my aunt back in December of 2007; she was the original owner. Everything on this car was designed well, except for the 138-hp Inline-4 engine. A sports car should be a little more powerful, but it still runs like a dream. I'm getting about 32mpg on mid-grade fuel. The design of the car looks nice, but all models should have included the spoiler. After 138,000 miles most of the car is still in great shape. The real axle was replaced two years ago as it completely snapped in the snow. Other than that, the car runs great and is still getting attention. It's a car that isn't seen frequently anymore.
Sporty design, gas mileage, powerful speakers, reliability.
More powerful engine, spoiler on all models, leather interior.
This car has not been a bad car to me. I did have to the replace the clutch once and axles twice, but the motor Is absolutely solid. Not a drip of anything, anywhere. The interior was not built well. My door panels are barely hanging on by a thread and the fabric on those panels are coming off the surface. The drivers seat does not like to be gotten in and out of a lot because it tends to tear on the left side. My center console started to fall off and my cupholder (the ONLY one in the car) won't come all the way out anymore. Backseat -- crammed, is the only way to put it. Don't try fitting someone over 5'5 in there or they were be hitting their head on the rear window everY 2 minutes.
Sunroof, 5 speed, sleek dash, reliable engine.
Use better parts when assembling the interior. It tends to fall apart. Rear trunk struts are worthless.
I am the 2nd owner of my MX-6, from
selling my mustang in 1997, the car was
a dream. It has been a very reliable
car with no out of pocket expenses
except for minor things. I am actually
selling my car, but only because I need
a bigger car (not much leg room in the
back for clients and family!) Other
than that, I will be sad to give it up@!
sunroof, sleek look, quick for a 4
cylinder, gas milage
nothing that can't be helped like the
antennae, hatch hyrolic lift,rubber
molding around window,plastic head
light covers discolor
I am the original owner of a Hunter Green
1993 MX6 LS. It has been a very pleasurable
car to drive for 11+ yrs. It offers a good blend
of fun driving, nice interior and great styling.
The exterior looks neither trendy nor generic
but sporty nice in an ageless sense.
Mechanical reliability and cost of repair have
been poor. Problems included power antenna
that sticked in cold [at 2 year], trunk hinge
that wouldn't hold the lid up [at 8 yr], A/C [at
7 year], oil leak [at 10 yr] and many others.
Bad city fuel efficiency. Suite polluting
(originally purchased in NJ, it barely passes the
smog check in CA).
