Great Car For Fun, Daily Driver If You Don't Need Much Space. — This car has great maneuverability and is a joy to drive. It makes you feel like you are in a race car. The ride is bumpy and there is little storage space, let alone leg room, but it hugs the road, provides excellent gas mileage and is super easy to maintain. The top is easy enough to work and the response to driver is perfect. I'd absolutely recommend this car to anyone looking for a fun ride.

True Buget Sportscar, With Great Gas Mileage — We loved this car , it was so much fun to drive . If youve never experianced a Miata you out and test drive one with the top down and throw into a curvy road and see for yourself why everyone who owns one loves it so much.

Mazda Miata 1993 — Maintenance so far (since Aug 2005), other than oil/filter: (a) new timing belt (standard 120,000 mi service) (b) change of all fluids (they were rather dirty) (c) complete renewal of the A/C system (new condenser, compressor, etc.) (d) replacement of the large and small shift boots (e) removal of rust both rear quarter panels (consequence of living in the rust belt) (f) new clutch & flywheel (not a surprise at 135,000 miles) (g) new fuel pump (h) replaced camshaft position sensor (Note: this is a $600 part! By checking the classified section of miata.net, I luckily bought one (used) for $100) (i) new brakes, new ventilated front discs (j) DRLs, so no need to pop headlights

Zoom Zoom! — Cost of ownership is extremely low - minimal yearly maintenance and it runs like a charm! Very HIGH Fun Factor - extremely fun car to drive! Passes smog test every two years without a problem. Had a minor issue with the security system that was purchased with the car from the dealership - it is interfering with the ignition of the car - I need to remove the whole system. Other than that, it is in great shape for having over 125K miles on it! I will never sell it!

Pros

50/50 weight distribution, every option in the book,amazing handling and gearbox - and over 30mpg

Cons

Too small to take on a roadtrip, target for theft, wind noise is deafening on long road trips

Only 1500 Made, Loaded To The Gills, Red Leather, Tight Handling, Dream Shifter! — Short on cabin space and cargo room, but long on driving pleasure. All the joys of a 60's British Roadster with none of the fall apart. The 93 Limited Edition comes with a 10 speaker stereo, BBS wheels, Bilstein shocks, a 1/4" lowered suspension, ABS brakes, headrest speakers, a bass woofer embedded in each seat, and a red leather interior

I Heart My Miata — the miata has always been an iconic sports car. cheap, reliable and has some of the best handling out there. the acceleration could be better, but thats not what this cars about. the miatas styling and great demeanor on the road make it one of the best sports cars out there. mine handles high speeds great! at 110mph its free of any shaking or rattling.

A Great Budget Sporty Compact Convertible — Fun to drive, build quality good, goes through plug wires quickly though. Not much in the way of interior space, and not much security in a convertible, but gets great gas mileage, and is awesomely easy to find parking for.
