| ||Model of the car:||LS V6|
| ||General comments:||This car is the cheapest "eye-turner" you'll find. Seriously, MX-6s are so rare on the roads, everyone turns to see yours. GET IT WITH THE SPOILER...it looks like a Ford Probe without a spoiler, and we don't want that now, do we?No anti-lock brakes, though, for obvious sport handling reasons. But the 4-disc will lock the tires in a hurry at high speeds, so watch it. Front-wheel drive affords better control, as well as more weight over the drive wheels. This car is light - it would spin out with rear-wheel drive.Second gear has all the power you'll need, from 15mph all the way up to 50. "It's my favorite gear!" You'll feel it sink you back in your seat once you reach 3000. I love popping the clutch at 3200rpm and rocketing off the line after a brief chirp of the tires.|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Loose, notchy feeling in the transmission (manual)Power windows need a lot more powerHeavy clutch|
| ||Previous car:||Toyota Celica - MX-6 is faster and quieter. Celica is less jarring on bumps.|
