This is my third Miata. The '92 has the
roughest ride out of the three. I also
spend a lot of time finding and
securing rattles which was not a
problem on the others. 3/4 visibility
is nonexistent with the top up. The
trunk did leak water. The shifter is
notchy and not very smooth. This
apparently is common in the early
models. Now for the good. This car is
over 10 years old and more reliable
then my '99 Jeep wrangler. Very fun to
drive. Handles great. Convertible. I
test drove the z3 and mr2 and still
plan on buying a new miata. They are
just better cars.
Fun factor, excelent enterior lay out,
reliability, hard top.
Better quality leather, more power,
smother shifting, and glass back
window. The good news is they now make
miatas with these improvements :)
