Old School roadster without the grief
By debushau on
1993 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible
Has the look and feel of an Elan or
Sprite - sharp handling, moderate
power, compact package - without the
frailty. Reliable though not 100% - my
car needed new a/c compressor, rear
wheel bearings, ball joints, top is
wearing out, beginning to feel "loose"
with squeaks, new converter (x2),
synchro on 2nd, radio kaput, etc.
Motor is solid but doesn't pass muster
in a sports car.
Confidence inspiring handling. Lack of
power means limits can be explored
safely. Decent trunk. Good mileage. Ok
ride. Popular for auto cross and
racing. Nice sound.
Later models have stronger motors. Bit
heavy for its size.
