I love this car. It looks great and is fast enough for me I've been getting about 18 MPG City and as high as 33 MPG on the highway. I keep the car as God intended it. Just added a Hood Bra, SUNROOF WIND DEFLECTOR NEW and Headlight Covers.
This was my first real car - now its my first
lemon. I've put about 30,000 miles on it
since I got it but I've also had to replace the
engine, transmission, and various other
expensive parts. And I used to make fun of
people with Ford Probes (they share the
same parts)...not any more. Whatever they're
asking for its not worth it - do not buy this
car! It will only lead to pain & suffering plus a
Bought my 93 MX-6 with 80,000 miles 2
years ago. Car has given me no problems
at all. Acceleration is quite good (0-
60 in about 7.3 sec) Braking and
handling are very good. Comfort is
alright but actually quite nice for
it's class. Some minor electrical bugs
have creeped up but are just annoying
(washer light wont turn off) Fuel
economy is actually far better than
advertised (26-29 mpg-mostly highway)
Luggage space is more than enough. Rear
is a bit small, but hey-it's a sports
coupe not an SUV!!!! A manual is a must
in this car.
The second gen MX-6, with its unique looks and sporty handling, enjoys a small but loyal following nearly two decades after it was discontinued in 1997.
I bought mine with 93,000 miles, put another 20,000 on the clock (which included a NY-CA round trip), and sold it for what I paid without incurring any major expenses. I liked it a lot and actually felt a twinge of seller's remorse when I let it go.
Since it shares the same underpinnings as the Ford Probe, replacement parts are inexpensive and not hard to find.
It's basically a reliable and fun ride with a few quirks. Offers great bang for your buck, but they're getting harder to find in good condition as time goes on.
I'm 19 years old and I bought this car instead of a Prelude(Which was too expensive for me). I bought it 6400$CND and it had 182k on it. Still, the car was in great shape. No rust, very clean inside. Once i tried it for the first time, i litteraly fell in love with it. It has alot of power, great handling and is very quiet. This car combines both performance and comfort at a very cheap price. I would recommend this car to anybody that wants power and yet enjoy his ride. But if you want to modify this car to look like those Civics, forget it. This car is very hard to please. Performance parts are expensive and more rare than any other import cars.
