The Mx-5 — The Miata in stock form leaves a lot of room for improvement. This Miata is to a point where I cannot complain. Full suspension work makes it handle like it should (in my eyes). The garrett turbo makes the car perform great. I have driven stock Miatas, and while they are fun, they just lack too much. I like knowing that my car hangs with V8s'. It is honestly like a go-kart on steroids.

Pros: Quick, nimble, and cheap

Cons: It is an older car.

Rwd Lsd — It is a RWD sportscar with LSD. It weighs roughly 2000 pounds. It is a handling beast, and once it's turbo and has coilovers, will destroy all. The only downside is the build quality is typical old japanese. Rusts sort of easy. The seats are comfortable, but this is a sportscar. Overall a really fun car to drive.

Pros: RWD LSD

Cons: It's a little underpowered, stock.

91 Mazda Miata, The Most Overlooked Sports Car — The Miata is one of those cars that is so much more than its spec sheet. On paper it is a little convertible with a dinky 1.6L engine that makes 100 hp on a good day. Doesn't sound to thrilling, but driving it is something I think every car person should. The uber light weight and front and rear double wishbone suspension and this car a go-kart for grown ups. This car is by far the funnest car I have driven, and I have driven alot of faster cars. This one I will hold onto forever.

Pros: Handeling, fun to drive, Mazda quality

Cons: Lack of power, and a cabin made for little Japanesse men.

The Miata's First Time Special Edition — This is one of the British Racing Green Special Edition Miatas. 1991 was the first time a Special Edition (or later "Limited Edition") Miata was offered. The initial buzz over the Miata had finally worn off and this was Mazda's way of keeping the excitement going. While not an overly powerful car, the early Miata is a very satisfying and fun car to drive. Very mechanical and reassuring. You are not isolated from the workings of the vehicle, you are included in them. It's great fun and definitely a driver's car.

Pros: FUN!  Very sporty in the classic roadster way.  

Cons: Limited storage capacity.  I've heard headroom can be a problem for tall drivers.

Miata, Fun In The Sun — This is the most fun car to drive I have ever owned. It is bettere than the two Corvettes, I have had. Better handling, and better build quality. I like the older Miata because the are light, rugged, simple and easy too modify. My Honda CRX was almost has much fun, but not a convertible.

Pros: Handling, quickness, quality, cannot break it, looks good

Cons: Needs  a little more power

Miata — Performance: Acceleration is moderate. On par with a typical V6 sedan from the 90's. Braking and hanlding are superb. Build Quality: It has some rattles and cowl shake. Overall pretty solid though. Repair side, it has been excellent. Apperance: It could use some masculinity. Cost of Ownership. Expensive to buy (relatively speaking) but cheap to operate. Low maintenance and around 38-40mpg on premium. Around 34mpg on 87 octane. (Ignition timing advance when running premium) Fun Factor: The #1 reason to buy. It's not that fast but incredibly fun to drive. (It's handles like a go cart)

Pros: Zoom Zoom

Cons: Bang Bang (Darn Michigan Roads)

I Still Miss This Car — Engine is willing but still anemic, which makes it fun to try to go fast. Although they are famous for being very reliable I had to repair mine a lot, although it only left me stranded once. Build quality is above4 average. I was able to autocross it without any problems ( not bad for a 12 year old car). Probably the most fun car that I've ever owned. The cockpit might give some claustrophobia though.

Pros: Tough, Fun, Convertible, Fun, Easy to work on , cheap , Fun

Cons: Too small, flexy chasis, relatively slow.

Mah Car — ok well i like that its a samll car, ONLY because its less weigth that the engine has to haul, thus its faster. For me, it doesnt cost a whole lot to own, only thing i really pay for is gas and reapirs and anything i may want done to it. The inside is definitely nicer than the outside for now, mainly cuz the lady that owned the car before me did not take care of it at ALL. and thats 16 years of not being taken care of. im surprised it looks as good as it does now. Of course, the car has only gotten better since ive owned it, and from being where it is now, it only gona get better.

Pros: quick, drives well, reliable, stylish.

Cons: Little to small in the trunk, small gas tank.

Quick, Reliable — not much to complain about - bought it in '94 with 43K miles on it. now, with 79K miles, it still handles well. a few rattles, but i can live with it. the rocker panels seem to rust, maybe it's cleveland weather
