1997 Mazda MX-6 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Trunk size.

1997 Mazda MX-6 LS 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Looks great, handles awesome, great car to drive. Fun little car.


Suggested Improvements

The ATX (tranny) is not the best. They have a tendancy to crap out early.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Styling, handling, build quality, reliability, low cost of maintenance.


Suggested Improvements

Less plasticky interior, better headrests, cupholder on passenger side.

Review

Bought my 97 MX-6 LS for $6,000 and I couldn't be happier. Ok, so it's got 105k miles, but it runs perfect. Quick acceleration with the V6 is a kick in the pants! Got all the toys; leather, sunroof, alloy wheels, new MP3 CD, and power everything. Great bang for my hard earned bucks!


Favorite Features

Reliability. Except for a power window motor, haven't had any other problems since I got it a year ago. It's easy and inexpensive to maintain.


Suggested Improvements

Hmmm.... cupholder needs to be bigger. Hey I like to drink them Big Gulps!

Review

Unbelievable car. Oddly enough, fantastic on long trips...no driver fatigue! Corners on a dime, mpg up to 28+.Only problem... with radio antennae, but fixed cheaply. Leather seats hold up well. Sound system superb. Never done a thing to it and at 53k miles...doing great!


Favorite Features

Road feel, visibility of instrumentation, goodness of fit, overall quality, gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Possibly smoother auto-transmission.
