Without the miata where would we be? One of the greatest mass produced cars ever assembled.

My 2000 miata had over 100, 000 mi. But still seemed tight. A few oil leaks repaired and am ready for summer!

Nimble — Great cars for the weekend, handles like a go cart. Nice for day trips, would have only for a weekend car. Lack of versatility does not make for a good daily driver. For a manual top, is super easy to put up and down. As a second car, you can not go wrong.

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

Pros: Fun to drive, like a go cart for the street

Cons: No storage room other than a backpack.

10th Anniversary Mx-5, Excellent Condition, Ultra Low Mileage — This is a great looking and driving little sports car. The seats are supportive and smooth leather. Shifter feel is excellent, wooden steering wheel is great. 200watt Bose stereo sounds great even with the top down! 4 sport tires with full thread and matching fiberglass hardtop is included. Mx-5s aren't about raw power, they're about balance and nimble road handling. They inspire driving confidence and reward proper sport driving techniques. Miata's are truly the best bang for your buck driver's cars. Only selling bc/ this house bought two brand new Miatas and parking space is getting thin.

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

Pros: Crazy low mileage! Unique luxury appointments, awesome sound system, fun to drive!

Cons: like all miata's, she's tiny. limited storage and seating.

An Overall Fun Car — This car is perfect for long rides on beautiful days with the top down. It moves so quickly that it gets in and out of traffic and is a smooth ride that you can also count on as a daily driver.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, quickness, fun, good on gas

Cons: Small, not a lot of room for traveling long distances

Buy It If You Like Sport — really fun to drive, its very sporty, and the mazda quality is acceptable but not fantastic. the proformance is really fun especially with a manual transmission. its a handful to drive in the snow with the rwd and stick, but if your good enuf you can have a lot of fun with that little car

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: performance, style

Cons: cost of ownership

Fun Without Getting Into Too Much Trouble. — What a great car. Superbly balanced, perfect manual gearbox and totally connected to the road. Even after adding more than 300 additional horsepower to the factory 116hp at the wheels, the car was still extremely well balanced. I can't wait to buy another one and do another turbo setup.

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

Pros: If you want fun and reliability, this is it!

Cons: Only 5 cubic ft of cargo, which is plenty for most.

Fun car to drive. Good mpg, it isnt an every day driver and it does need premium fuel. The trunk is small but it would carry a few duffle bags for a long trip. The manual tranny is tight, fast shiftin... Read More
