Fantastic Sports Car Without All The Stuff They Put On Cars Now. Not Needed In A Sports Car. — At the time I owned this car I felt that it was the best sports car out there. Although it didn't have much power the combination of handling, braking and shifting made it a ball to drive. You could wail to the redline and not be breaking the law too much. Over 16 years it required nothing beyond the usual maintenance items. Its sole problems were a squeaky window and a rattle. Both were repaired in the first month. The structure was somewhat flexible but who cared. With a Borla exhaust the sound was wonderful and it made the radio unnecessary. If I had the room I would have kept it but it was time to move on.

No Better Car For Your Dollar. — Perfect design for an inexpensive lightweight sportscar. Reliable, work on it yourself, ~30mpg, plenty of modifications available, and has a solid frame to make it into whatever type of car you want. Not the highest handling limits, but it is SO forgiving at the limits that you'll want to push it all the time. If you can't drive fast with 90hp, you can't drive fast with 900. Take down the top (2 seconds) and enjoy yourself.

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

My Miata — Low maintenance and very reliable. A lot of fun on the corners and good get-up-and-go with excellent gas mileage. The car is easy on the eyes and wonderful to cruise with the top down on a sunny California day, or night.

Cons

Very small. Engine leaks oil.

Super Fun To Drive Cute Convertible For Cheap $ — Bought this car for $2900 cash to drive on sunny days. That's pretty cheap for a convertible. I think it may be the smallest car on the road and it feels like your driving a toy. The 5 speed stick is responsive and turns on a dime. The manual steering is a little tough until you get going. Great gas mileage. I can never remember when I last visited the gas station.

Most Fun To Drive, Smiles Per Mile, Bang For The Buck Sports Car — The best British sports car never made. A very affordable, modern version of the classic sports car. Great fun to own and drive. Huge availability of replacement and performance parts. Many Miata clubs, with a great following of fellow enthusiasts.

A Fun Little Car That Works Great As A Commuter — Handling was by far the best aspect of the car, despite the fact its a convertible. Good engine with high revs and quick off the line. Decent stock sound system, I really enjoyed the seat intergrated speaker, especially with the top down. The only part of the body styling I didnt like was the nose. Far too 'cute' for my taste.

Primary Use: Commuting to work
