Pros

The most fun you can have with your cloths on!

Cons

Other large cars do not see it since it is so small. High Horse power cars try to race you, but this car is designed for great handling not for Speed.

Great Fun Convertable — The Mazda Miata can still be found with lower mileage for very reasonable cost. We purchased our 1991 SE with hardtop with 49k miles in late 2009 for $7,500 and that included delivery from Florida. The Miata is so easy to work on and the miata.net community is the most helpful of any car that I know of.

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

Not For Hairdressers. — Needs wider wheels/tyres. Skids on braking because it's so light. Acceleration is quick, not just because of engine, but also short-shifting close-ratio gearbox. Beautifully agile. Sills can rust easily, requires regular top up of waxoil to keep it all beautiful. Find one with a hard top.

as above

Cons

Cheap Thrills - Better Than A Cheap Woman — Acceleration 0-62mph sub 7secs Braking - needs attention! Handling - sweet as a nut Interier is next for restoration Fun Factor - 10/10 Cost of ownership is not important... as most of the cost goes to up-grades and restoration and I would warrent those as "additional". By the time its finished, we're looking at over £15,000. But that's not the point is it? Its a passion, part of me and when is on the road, it will take on most cars. I'm always just under the limit... Because I want to keep it. I just love driving this car

I Miss Mine Everyday — Acceleration was alot of fun with minor upgrades, braking was great, handling was awesome. Build quality was very good. Appearance was a little mis matched with the stock bug eye headlights, but mostly good. It didn't cost much to own. Fun Factor of 10!!! Like driving a go-kart on the street.

Pros

It feels better than anything else in the world

Cons

It is small, the roof is not that water tight

The Na Mx5 Miata — These cars are so amazing! It may have a meager amount of power, but there is NO SUBSTITUTION! Miatas feel so tight and grab around anything. Minor performance upgrades will make it a track ready animal. I LOVE MY CAR GO BUY ONE TODAY

Pros

Tough, Fun, Convertible, Fun, Easy to work on , cheap , Fun

Cons

Too small, flexy chasis, relatively slow.

I Still Miss This Car — Engine is willing but still anemic, which makes it fun to try to go fast. Although they are famous for being very reliable I had to repair mine a lot, although it only left me stranded once. Build quality is above4 average. I was able to autocross it without any problems ( not bad for a 12 year old car). Probably the most fun car that I've ever owned. The cockpit might give some claustrophobia though.

Mah Car — ok well i like that its a samll car, ONLY because its less weigth that the engine has to haul, thus its faster. For me, it doesnt cost a whole lot to own, only thing i really pay for is gas and reapirs and anything i may want done to it. The inside is definitely nicer than the outside for now, mainly cuz the lady that owned the car before me did not take care of it at ALL. and thats 16 years of not being taken care of. im surprised it looks as good as it does now. Of course, the car has only gotten better since ive owned it, and from being where it is now, it only gona get better.

Miata — Performance: Acceleration is moderate. On par with a typical V6 sedan from the 90's. Braking and hanlding are superb. Build Quality: It has some rattles and cowl shake. Overall pretty solid though. Repair side, it has been excellent. Apperance: It could use some masculinity. Cost of Ownership. Expensive to buy (relatively speaking) but cheap to operate. Low maintenance and around 38-40mpg on premium. Around 34mpg on 87 octane. (Ignition timing advance when running premium) Fun Factor: The #1 reason to buy. It's not that fast but incredibly fun to drive. (It's handles like a go cart)
