Oil sensor simply lost its ability to keep oil in the crankcase at 74,000 miles. Oil pouring from crankcase at traffic light. A major disaster was deferred by being observant.

Some trim frail.

Thermostat malfunctioned at 88,000 miles with fair warning.

General Comments:

Wonderfully touring car that had been overlooked when produced simply because it may have performed so well.

Too bland?

Superb comfort and rather affordable for such rapid transit.

Fuel economy great for a V6.

Summary:

Very hot in addition to the great performance

Faults:

The only problem I have had with my MX6 LS is the automatic antenna doesn't work as well as I would like it too.

General Comments:

This car is a hundred times better than most cars I've been in... I've driven the BMW X5, Mitsubishi 3000GT, Mazda RX7, and a Toyota Supra among other cars, and this car is definitely one of the quickest I've driven.

It is also one of the most comfortable.. regardless of the fact that the backseat is small, but what do you expect form a sportscar.

It has a sleek design and is extremely reliable.

Hi there,

I am from Sudbury, Ontario and I am looking to buy a 1994 Mazda MX6 with 140 000km. I am really interested in buying it but I am just wondering how it is on gas, how expensive the parts are to replace, and if I'll run into any kind of problems since it is a 94 with high km...

The selling price is $7 000 Canadian + taxes.

Please let me know what you think ASAP.

Thanx.

I live in Ottawa, Canada. I've owned my 94 MX6 LS for almost a year now. It had 186k when I bought it, but it still runs great, the only major parts that I changed were the timing belt and the muffler.

It's not bad on gas if you drive it casually, but if you're like any MX6 owner you'll probably drive it fast because it has some power.

Summary:

Enjoyable, but not versatile

Faults:

Transmission, brakes, windshield washer, tires, headlamp, exhaust clamp and exhaust pipes.

Question: The manual says "no", but can I tow a small (15') trailer behind this car? I am moving 1200 miles and have more belongings than can fit in this, my only vehicle, but not enough stuff to warrant a moving van. What to do???
