If The British Could Only Build A Car Like Japan — My Miata isn't a very fast sport car but it is very enjoyble, I haven't had and major problems with it and it is very reliable. I have had a lot of British sport cars in the past (MG- Triumph-Austin Healy) and the Miata feels like a British car without all the maintance. It is British Racing Green with Tan interior.

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

I Want Another One Sooooo Bad. — i wanted a widebody for it. it wanted a 13b. the top was amazing, 30sec one hand operation. seats were wonderfully supportive and never uncomfortable. the handling was perfect! almost never understeered or oversteered, though both could be induced. the shifter had such a positive feel too.

Cons

NO trunk space

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.

Superb And Very Usable 2 Seater, Engine Is Bullet Proof And Goes On For Ever... — not much in performance but doing 30 feels like 60, superb handling, easy to take the top down, no squeeks, rattles or bangs, build quality can not fault, only one problem, little noisey with the top up, all in all an excellent fun car to drive,, even has a quite a large boot for a 2 seater....

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

HANDLING!!!!

Cons

Needs a 6th gear to really top-out

Dollar For Dollar, A Great Budget Thrill Ride — This car is fun as hell to drive. It corners and brakes amazingly. It's a little sluggish, but with a few high-performance bolt-ons, it will be a fun vehicle. Gas mileage is great. You can easily get 35 mpg (when you really want to) :-). The suspension is extremely stiff. Dollar for dollar, this is one hell of a ride

Handles like a GoKart. Easy to drive. Very balance handleing.

Cons

Lacks power.

Gokart On Drugs! — This is a fun car to drive. Not the fastest, but it handles like a gokart. The car is very under powered, but only in this car you can rip second gear through a turn and still have traction. If you are thinking of getting a Miata first thing I recommend you getting is better coilovers. Then you really can drive this car at the limit. Also get some performance up grades such as intake and headers and exhaust. So you can get a little more power out of it. But other than that I love my Miata..

300whp+

Cons

too many slow cars on the road

Me Oughta — Great blance, slow stock, but cheap and easy to get more than you ever could handle. If you like to go off for a drive thru all kinds of roads, this car will thrill youtono end. Light, agile, and fun.

Buy A Miata — Very fun to drive and fuel efficient. Exceptional handling and feel. Reasonably quick. Inexpensive to repair. Nicely weighted steering with good feedback. 4 wheel disc brakes and 4 wheel double wishbone suspension make for excellent handling. Buy a miata. OK?

91 Miata — Great nimble car. Not great daily driver. Cheap maintenance, and great build quality, though not hard considering the small amount of parts used in the car. Very fun to drive but lack of power can be very frustrating. two words.
