Actually it was the manual... which may have seen some abuse, because it 
certainly wasnt a smooth gate.  But I do beleive it was the 4 banger 
version... not the 6, which WOULD make a big difference.  Assuming its 
better than the v6 they put in the mx-3.  Last week when I was in 
atlanta, I drove my freinds mx-3 for the week, it was the 5 speed v6. 
What junk.  The 4000 would definately beat that car, there isnt even an 
arguement there! :)  it was new tho too, 15k on the clock.  Very 
unimpressive car, and after the week, I was glad to hand over the keys 
again! :)

But the botom line is... no, I havent driven the mx-6 with the v6 and 
5speed though... and if done right, its a good combo...  (hear that audi???)

I do remember toying with a mx-6 turbo, and losing miserably on the 
hiway...!  :)  hey, live and learn!
