My MX-6 was a base model 4cyl auto.
The tranny went twice once at 86k and
again at 108k miles. This car is far
from reliable. If you are considering
a car in this sport compact catagory
check out an integra or cavalier over
this car. It was nothing but

While I love the looks and performance
of my car, I have to admit I've spent a
lot of money on major repairs. I
bought it after 51k miles. Being the
second owner, I've had to replace the
motor mounts and the whole front axle
because the original mounts went bad
and lifted my engine up damaging my CV
axle! Second, my transmission died
twice. The first time, I replaced it
with a used one and then after 50k
miles I had to pay for an overhaul
($1800). Could it be just plain bad
luck? But like a star-crossed fool, I
stick with my car because I like the
look and the way it handles.

It is an extremely reliable car (have
made several cross-country trips in
it), and it performs as if it has a few
more cylinders than it actually does...
if you're thinkin' about gettin' an MX-
6, I would strongly encourage ya.. you
won't regret it! :~)

Bought this car new in Aug of '94.
I've always been impressed by the
performance of this car considering it
only has 118 HP. With 120,000 miles on
it, it shows no sign of letting up.
Besides a few interior noises and an
external AC compressor noise, the car
has held up well. The only repairs
I've had to have were both CV joints
($240 total), a clutch ($250) at
110,000 miles, trunk lifts ($50), a
tune up ($120), and I had the timing
belt changed at 80,000 miles ($300).
Only this after 8 years of City stop
and go driving.
