1992 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


Review

I bought my Miata new in '92, and have never been sorry. I did loads of long-distance driving up & down Calif. when working for the state. Later took the car to England for 10 years where it was loads of fun on twisty lanes. Added supercharger, adjustable Konis, & slotted discs all around and it now goes & handles even better. Over 105K miles, and the only thing that has ever failed was a blown heater hose, long ago.


Best Features

Fun, fun, fun to drive!


Worst Features

Slightly more comfortable bucket seats--though it just may be my back getting older since I bought it 18 years ago. Only wish I had the 6-speed box.

Review

I decided to sell my motorcycle due to arthritis and replace it with a convertible. I had thought about buying an affordable classic, i.e. MGB, Triumph Alfa Romeo or Fiat. To cut a long story short I bought a 92 Miata SE in British racing Green with 108K on the clock. The AC had been removed and power steering replaced with non power unit. This car is in its element in narrow twisty country roads. It will out handle almost any other car on the road. It's not all about top speed or 0 to 60 times. It's all about fun to drive and it's not going to cost you and an arm and a leg.


Best Features

It's handling can't beat it


Worst Features

I bought my Miata 4 months ago with 92,000 miles on it and fell in love with it right away! It drives & handles great and the gas mileage is outstanding! This car is perfect in every single way!


Best Features

Driving with the top down


Worst Features

If you do not like attention don't buy this car. It's eye catcher!

Review

Living in Temecula & working in National City ( 70 mile commute ) was killing my Ridgeline, so I bought this with a rebuilt engine. This car is an absolute blast to drive. I'm getting roughly 34 miles to the gallon and am just having so much fun in it. The previous owner had maintained this car as I would, taking care of every detail. I love it so much that i'm debating on selling my Ridgeline & using this as my primary. Possibly a bad idea, but do I really need a car payment for a truck I barely drive now :)


Best Features

It's just fun, that's it. Easy to work on & dress up any way you like.


Worst Features

As my toy car, nothing. Well, if I could get a bigger smile when I get in it I guess that would be better... Trust me, you'll love old Miatas...
