Ahead of its time
Antenna mast broke after 4 years; replaced.
Spark plug cables need to be replaced every 30,000 Kms, as they tend to short and cause misfiring.
Power window switches broke a couple times, and the fix would be to have it backed via screws with a metal plate.
Self adjusting lifters tend to need replacing after 50,000 miles.
Velocity joint boot rubbers replacement every 50,000 miles.
This is one of the best cars that Mazda has ever produced; had it from new, and never had any major problems, apart from those stated here.
Both in design, which is timeless, and performance, the car has been the best car that I have ever owned (please note that I own a Range Rover, Jaguar and Mercedes, and still prefer driving my MX6).
The handling in this car is by far the best. Still gets stares wherever I go. Wish that Mazda would start production of this Sporty Coupe again; I will be the first to order one. PLEASE MAZDA, relaunch this car.
To those of you who are complaining, perhaps the car that you bought has been abused; this is the only explanation.
Feature wise this car still to this day carries standard equipment that many new cars today don't. Definitely a great buy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
