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

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.

Great, Fun Car. Very Mod-able — Great car, solid, pristine condition. Build quality and interior are great, but it's an SE trim, so it had better be great! Good mileage. Turns heads. Hard top is good for bad weather. Softtop is mainly down when the hardtop is off.

Pros: Small, sporty, quick. Oh, and the top comes down

Cons: Not as much oomph as I'd like.

Mk2 1.6 Mx-5 — excellent buy, The pocky 1.6 engine doesn't disappoint with its performance and economical on fuel, after doing heavy reseach since buying my motor for you tuning nutz the 1.8 vision on the mk2 is easier to get performance parts, but its two insurance brackets higher and the the difference of 30bhp i couldn't warrent spending the extra cash, they handel as well as the reviews a pleasure to throw it into a bend, being a base model no abs but i love the raw feel of the car! a must buy for a driving nut! plus driving down the country roads with the lid down brings a whole different concept to world, i love it!

Pros: Cheap, fun, soft top, and parts are well priced and easy to get hold of.

Cons: Its down to your personal taste but i personally can't fault this car, the 1.8 would have been nice but not really needed.
