Vehicle: 1997 Mazda MX-6 2dr Coupe

This is an excellent car for any enthusiast, such as myself; however, if your looking for an everyday driver, you should probably look at a larger vehicle. The best part of this car is the fact that I can put all of metallica's band gear in my trunk... IT'S HUGE!!! The cost of the large trunk is that you have to compromise your back seat space. The other big downer about this car is the one cup holder that only fits a 12oz soda. 4cyl is a little slow, but the 6cyl has a decent amount of power. Transmission could have been designed better. I dont like having a 2.5 ghost gear :( I still think that it is a great car though. I'm very pleased with it.

Great car

Vehicle: 1997 Mazda MX-6 LS 2dr Coupe

I've had this car for nearly 4 years. Got it at 39K and its now at 75K. No real big problems at all. Ive taken various long trips (1500+Miles) without any issues. It's a great car.

Svelte, reliable beast.

This car never breaks down. The four cylinder is more than adequate in the city (I live in DC). With Eibach sport springs and bigger tires--I run 225/60/15--handling borders on amazing. I've got the last year (1997) in metallic gray with a greenish tint, and it looks like nothing else out there. Keeping this one forever.
