Miatatude — the most reliable and fun car that I have owned and still own, the car has a large[enormous ]following of varied clubs with a wide and diverse vocations at 79 years old this will probably be our last year of Miata touring. p/s over the years I have added and installed many customand performance features to satisfy my ego

Cons

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..

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

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

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.

Awesome — performance - acceleration is good, braking is great, handling is good, top speed is awesome. Build Quality- No repairs needed, small rust spots behind both doors. Appearance- Standard look for now. Cost of ownership- very little Fun Factor- Fun car to have.

Pros

No top and fun in the corners

Cons

Blind spot when the top is up and it can be hard to se out of if tall

I Love It And I Think With A V8 Swap (like I Have Planned) It Will Be Even Better — Acceleration is ok but where this car excels in is in the corners. 4 wheel independant suspension really keeps it flat in the twisties. There have been only a few minor things to fix which is great considering that this car is about 20 yrs old. Gas mileage is great since it is only a 1.6L. I tell you though, even though it is not the fastest, once the sun shines and top is dropped, it is just a blast to drive around in. The ride won't beat you up either.

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?

I Have One, Need I Say More? — this is a real sports car, light, simple; easy to drive... except when you decide to go really fast, then it can oversteer on corners and scare you if you don't know what you are doing. The fun of driving fast in a slow car such as this one far outweighs the fun of trying to go slow in a really fast car. its usually cheaper too.

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.
