1993 Mazda MX6 2.5L from North America
Out of this world
Very minor Problems. I drove the car from Texas from Chicago. On the way home to Chicago, my clutch went out. Not having very much money, I drove it 900 miles home, and felt very silly to learn that one of my fluid hoses had rotted through. I guess it was because I had left the oil cap off one time when I checked it, and this deteriorated the hose quickly.
The sunroof motor is dying, I also get the 'rear brake light' problem, I don't have a spoiler (which I think makes the car look more original). It is a little loud, but I just turn up my radio (still factory and factory speakers still great).
This is a great car. I've owned many cars (mostly used) and the only other car I've owned that handles better was the Audi Quattro (it handled superbly). I get 400=+ miles highway on a 15.5 gallon tank; city driving is about 350<. I use Mobil One synthetic oil; a little expensive, but well worth it. Mobil is the best oil for adding miles per gallon. Synthetic or no. Try it!
I put 35,000+ miles on this car in 1 1/2 years. I've driven from Chicago to Miami and Chicago to Brownsville, TX, among other shorter trips.
The only major problem I've had is the wheel balance/alignment. It seems to need adjusting more than other cars.
I feel I was extremely lucky to have found this car at $1500.
My next car will most definitely be a Mazda--new or used. zooom zooom zooom!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
