MX-6: Ups and downs
By Mike on


1990 Mazda MX-6 DX 2dr Coupe


Performance with the automatic transmission is weak. The car seems fast until you put it to the ground with the pedal half way and there's no more power at some speeds. Styling is good for a car in its price and year and my paint job has still not faded. It is white but red tends to fade. Cupholders are nonexistant and my A/C weakened out. Engine has survived a ruthless assault and seems to deal well with beatings. There just always seems to be new problems coming up. My motor mounts cracked and this is quite common for this car. Overall it's not a bad car for the price. Others seemed to have a little better luck than me with the car so I think the previous owner was tough on the car.

Best Features

Engine sound. Engine takes beating. Paint job remains glossy. Turning radius.

Worst Features

It has 110 hp (so I doubt it has the type of power others have commented on on the non-turbo versions). No cupholders. Car fogs up like crazy. Rough automatic shifting. Side panels very faded. 1990 year means it has old A/C system. Water leaks in trunk through lid (common problem).
