1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible

Review

This is my wifes little tic tac, as she lovingly refers to it. Bought it from some guy who had just changed the engine since the crank went out. Very common 1990 problem, however engines are PLENTIFUL especially through japan. Paid 3k with tax and license. Very hard to find one cheaper in as good condition. Handling is top notch and keeps up with more expensive sports coups with ease. One gripe, power, or the lack there of. Suggestion? yes, buy a greddy turbo kit for $1100. It'll add about 40hp and make one HECK of a difference. Engine is bulletproof once crank is fixed and will run 200k miles without breaking a sweat.

Favorite Features

Great car for the money, TONS of aftermarket goodies. Easy to work on and maintain. Deffinetly a drivers car.

Suggested Improvements

Already improved in the 94 and newer with the 1.8l making life a bit easier with more torque and hp's to go about your day to day's with.
