Also Ob2? or 1?

Any Common problems that happens to the 2nd gen mx6?

If you could go back what model and what year would you get? and why? thanks

The 2nd gen is available in the 2.0L I4 and the 2.5L V6. There should be no question as to which one to get.

The 2.5L V6 is OBD1 from 93-95. From 96 on it's OBD2. OBD1 is the way to go in my mind.
The early(93&94) MX6 LS (V6) had a few issues.
Rear calipers that seize
Faulty distributer
Both are fixed in the 95+ models.
Other common failings include Valve cover gaskets and the ATX tranny..

Technically 95 is probably the prime year, but the differences are so minor it's not worth worrying about. Maitenance records and condition on these cars is most important considering the newest one is now 7 years old.

In summation: find the best car for the best price and ignore the year.
