hello barbara. if the only thing you dont like about your miata is the brakes, i'd say either get em fixed, or buy a new miata. the new models have ABS (antilock braking system) standard and their brake distance is way lower. Also, they have achieved 5 star crash test ratings in (almost) all areas. If you enjoy driving your miata, i say fix it, or go for a new one. if you're looking on the side of practicality however, both the integra and mustang are good choices, but they dont handle nearly as well as a miata.

Hello Barbara, Here are two different brake upgrades for the Miata, one uses the factory size and upgrades rotors and pads the other upgrades the rotor size and replaces the calipers (but you must have 15" or greater sized wheels). Of course the better kits is a lot more expensive because you get rotors and calipers along with the brackets to connect them. http://www.gomiata.com/4bigbrkit90.html http://www.miatamania.com/Shop/ViewProducts.aspx?PlateIndexID=76874

Darryl's got it right on the money. Get new brakes, or get bigger brakes standard when buying a newer model.
