Pros

Handling, overall quality, classic appearance, reasonable to maintain, incredible fun

Cons

Everything wears out with time, but the first to go was the paint on the fenders and the upholstery, both repairable

The Most Fun I've Ever Had With A Car — I couldn't be more pleased with my Miata. I enjoy the driving experience even more than my 2006 Honda, and I don't just mean when the top is down on a sunny day! How can you complain about a 17 year old car that still purrs and never gives me a lick of trouble. Have the chance to buy one? Do it.

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

acceleration, handeling, sound, raw feeling, steering, fun as hell (scary actually)

Cons

noisy as hell, feels every pebble on the road, spins-out when applying too much gas on sharp turns

92' Mazda Miata W/ Greddy Td40h-15g Turbo — I bought this miata a fews months ago from a mechanic from Charlotte. It has a GReddy turbo(15Gturbine td40h compressor), no ic, vortech 12:1 FMU, Racing plug wires, home made boost control, crappy stock GReddy BOV, fidanza 8lb. flywheel, 6 puck Spec stage 3 carbon metallic clutch. It's running 8lbs. boost, at least that's the maximum I read on the boost gauge at full throttle. performance (mine w/ Turbo): Quick revs, acceleration(like a motor cycle, except not nearly as fast) 14.5 1/4 mile Takes Corners at 40mph easily (note: don't apply gas or you'll spin out like me) Quality: For being 16 years old, it's reliable, few problems, maybe convertible is leaking. Apperance: looks o.k. Fun Factor: 9/10... not a super car, but is a cheap substitute for a Lotus elise msrp: >$38,000

Fun Miata! — It's a fun little car that can take the turns pretty well, and it gets good gas mileage.

Splendid, A Dream Car — for being a 16 year old car, it sure doesn't act like it! super fun to drive, and taking the top down is a dream! I love that I got it painted yellow. it gets great gas milage and the trunk is suprisingly spaceous!

Pros

Fast, light, agile, thrilling car to drive!

Cons

If you are a tall fella, 6' plus, and more than a little broad about the beam, this will be a
snug fit! Occasionally a little twitchy in the wet and greasey conditions!

Fun For All Convertible! — If you like driving with a traditional set up, i.e., front wheels steer, and rear wheels drive, then this is the convertible for you! I will expand on this later!

Would Recommend This Car To Anyone — What's not to love. Just like the ol british roadsters except it still runs flawlessly after 120K miles! Great handling and driving dynamics, could use a little more power, but what car couldn't. One of the best cars I've owned!
