    Technically the mx6 is a probe in disguise. The probe was what Ford engineers first designed when they were trying to come up with a new (foxbody) Mustang.

    ford body, mazda motor...

    the v6 is the shittiest motor mazda ever made too. they blow up, leak, make all sorts of nasty noises. my ex's had a nasty cam tap from some spring that wears out on the cam gear. they all do that eventually. they also are known for eating distributors every few thousand miles.

    i'm not hating because it's a ford. the car is a beater/winter pos. at least hondas are project cars and have resale value.
