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!
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.
Hmmm.... cupholder needs to be bigger. Hey I like to drink them Big Gulps!
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!
Road feel, visibility of
instrumentation, goodness of fit,
overall quality, gas mileage.
What a fantastic car. I bought second
hand with 25k, and have owned for 3
years. I now have 130k, and still
runs like the day I bought it. Lotsa
power (provided you have the 2.5L V6),
lotsa torque unlike the vtec 4
cylinders of today. You don't need
5000 rpm to get this car moving. Mine
is cherry red, and I have
metallic/smokey light tint on the
windows (comparable to the Lexus type
tints), and man does it look sharp.
It's a real eye catcher. I've gotten
so many compliments about my car, I
almost don't want to get rid of it!
But, tis the end of an era for me, and
I'm off to SUV land.
V6-24valve, exterior styling
6th gear for highway driving ... at
120km, rpm hovering between 3500 and
4000. good power, but don't need it
all the time, 6th gear needed.
