My Mazda Miatas — Perfectly weight-balanced, double wishbones front/rear, 4-wheel discs, incredible handling and a drop-top. I look for any excuse to drive mine. Add a high-performance suspension, grippy tires and an aggressive alignment and you've got a track monster. Add forced induction or a V8 and you've got a street/race track monster.

Fun For Under $7000 — It handles great. No annoying little build quality problems. If you push it it won't scare you, slides are easy to do without spinning out. I autocross it and it is a cheap way to get into motorsports. Just gas, oil, and new tires twice a year. It takes the abuse in stride i've repaired nothing in a year of ownership. i need to replace the timing belt but that is ok after 85000 miles. It isn't bad on fuel economy either. 28 in town and 29 at 70 mph, my only complaint is that at 70 you are around 3500 rpm. It could do 30+ mpg if i could lower the revs. It even rides pretty well and fits my 6'1" 200+lbs brother with leg room to spare.

The harder you drive it be more fun it is.

Cons

OK, so the roof leaked a little when it rained really hard, but don't let it put you off the car.  I would buy another tomorrow!

The Start Of Something Good — Nicknamed Buffy (the Volvo Slayer) after many reliable Swedish tanks, the MX5 changed my life. I loved driving it, met great people with it, had top holidays driving it about, just a great fun car to have.

Build One! You Won't Regret It!!! — Performance - Well with the 5.0L V8 under the hood, upgraded brakes, and aftermarket coil-overs and sway bars...the car accelerates, brakes and handles VERY well! Build Quality - It's ok...it's a 10 + year old car Appearance - Interior has been spruced up a bit, but is seats are showing their age. Exterior is much better now that I tore the car appart and painted the whole thing with a fresh coat of Brilliant Black. Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage is 20-25mpg, not bad for the power and fun. Maintenance is very easy to do and parts are cheap. Fun Factor - Hell yea...I don't think you could have more fun on four wheels!! Freak'n hillariously fun!!

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