It's Amazing Inside And Out. — It's a Mazda.. What's not to love? It's fun to drive in the city or on the highway, it handles great, very roomy interior, actually has some pep under the hood, easy to maintain, easy to drive, very reliable. Great car all around.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Everything

Cons: Rear seats

If You Want A Fun, Small Fwd Sports-compact, Buy One Of These. If You Want This One, Contact Me. — --Performance: awesome acceleration, shocks a lot of guys in their Civics. Brakes are pretty good, and the only car that I've driven that handles better is a Mini Cooper S. --Build Quality: these cars are VERY well built, it's not uncommon to hear of them lasting for up to 170k. I've not had to replace a single part on this car yet, and I've had it since June, 2009. The only rattle is the rear deck inside the car, it's a large plastic piece, and is a little loose. --Appearance: The outside looks ok, with a front lip, rear bumper extensions, new wheels, and a lowering kit, the car would look great! Supra taillights are also a popular mod for this car. Interior is pretty nice as well, everything is well-placed. --Cost of Ownership: Mine has only costed me gas and insurance so far, MPGs are in the 23-25 range for me, and nothing has broken on mine (of course, mine only has 58k miles on it, so that helps). --Fun Factor: This car is a BLAST TO DRIVE!!! My only complaint is that it is FWD, and I wish it were rear instead, if it had that and a six-speed, this car would be near-perfect. The car has a really high gear-ratio, I looked it up, and the website said 4:10, but I'm not sure if it's that high. Great for acceleration, and it still gets good mileage, so I guess not too bad, a six-speed would make it so much better though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it's really fun for a small, late-nineties sports car that's off the beaten path. Also has it's own cult-following who know it inside and out, and will help with anything on it

Cons: if someone has tried to soup it up, or has just plain dogged it (general things that apply to any car, really)

Its A Great All Around Car, Dependable, Durable. Quick. Good Looking. — Performance -Acceleration 6 -10. Small v6 packs a punch, but small engine lacks urgency. Build Quality - EXCELLENT. This car can handle anything. Appearance - I love the way it looks Cost - Cheap lol I love it. This car is great fun for anyone.

Pros: Its just a great all around Vehicle.

Cons: Its a two door.

Mx 6 Review — Easy to drive, handles great; at 120,000 miles haven't had any major repairs at all; interior is a nice beige leather, shows a tad of wear, exterior is a generic "high resale" white; one tank of gas lasts about 400 miles and with regular oil changes and checkups, I have sidestepped any major repairs; absolutely most fun cars to drive and I've driven much newer and more expensive car than mine.

Pros: Most fun car to drive, Low cost of ownership, great performance, highest build quality

Cons: Exterior parts are rare.

A Grear Little Trooper — Had a great time with this car. Often found myself hoping in for a quick ride and ending up on the other state line. Easy to drive, super reliable, fun to go fast, just only ride two people. Gas mileage was nice too. Definetly a car to pick-up for the hell of it.

Pros: Great gas, cross state line buzz

Cons: Litlle Back Seat, and no cup holders

Mx-6 Review — Performance - Peppy, the power is evenly distributed. It doesn't jerk you in your seat like previous cars I have driven once it hits the powerband in the higher RPMs. Build Quality - It is an older car and I haven't had it for very long so I am not really sure on what is to be expected. Appearance - I think it's a beautiful car. It has great lines and design. Their isn't anything negative that I can think of. The only interior down fall is it needs extra cup holders and the rear window is very hard to clean from what I have noticed. I don't mind the back being very small, I don't lug anyone around. I recommend this car to anyone looking for a first car or something to use as project. It definately has potential.

Pros: Really fun car

Cons: Rear windshield a pain to clean
