Since I just purchased the car, nothing has gone wrong under my ownership.
However, as of writing the MX-6 needs:
New front ball joints.
The airbag diagnostic circuit replaced.
Drivers seat leather repaired.
I have always wanted one of these cars, and when the opportunity came to snatch one up at a super low price, I couldn't resist.
What a deal! This is such a wickedly fun and at the same time civilized and refined automobile.
The 2.5L V6 is very responsive and smooth throughout its RPM range and can pull from low speeds in any gear. Drop a gear and floor it and the car blasts ahead. I have never owned such a powerful car.
Like the engine, the suspension and chassis grip the road with tenacity, but also give a taut controlled ride that is not jarring. And for a larger car, the MX-6 handles great in the corners.
The clutch is buttery sooth and once one gets used to the heavier shift linkage, quick, precise shifts can be done with ease.
Something that really sold me on this car, along with the timeless styling, were the seats! The leather ones in my LS are a dream- I would be proud to have them as furniture in my home.
Great stock 6 speaker CD stereo. For a 13 year old sound system it works great and sounds awesome.
I'm expecting the MX-6 to cost more to run and maintain than my last car, a 1992 Hyundai Scoupe. But I don't care as it is just so much fun.
