1994 Mazda MX-6 2dr Coupe


Review

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
headaches.


Worst Features

better tranny

Review

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.


Best Features

Nice, smooth ride. Very sporty- looking, sleek vehicle.


Worst Features

Car out-of-production, but I would re- design the tranny as it seems to have a high failure rate. Also add better, longer-lasting motor mounts and add some room to the backseat!

Review

Car runs very well, but is a little
small in the back seat. The sun roof
is great and the car is really fun to
drive. Needs some minor repairs, body
is good. Heater does not work.


Best Features

sunroof, leather seats, sporty look, tinted windows, five-speed gives it excellent pick-up and passing power.


Worst Features

Needs to be detailed, and needs a CD player.

Review

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! :~)

Review

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.


Best Features

I love the performance of this car - 118 horse power, but it drives like it has 160. It takes turns great and has a sports car feel. Also, being 6'1" it has plenty of leg room up front. The cloth interior is also top notch.


Worst Features

More horse power would have been nice, but then I bought a 4 cyl. and I knew what I was getting. A better stock sound system would have been nice as well. Hey, Howabout a back seat that someone could actually sit in without having their knees in their throat?
