I have owned my Miata for 12 years. My parents bought it for me as my first car when I turned 16. It has 120000 miles on it, and It has never broken down. It has never left me stranded. I have had it serviced when it was due. The interior and exterior are still in excellent condition. I live in TX so the weather is usually always perfect for top down fun! The leather and wood trim are all in excellent condition. This has been a true delight to own and I will be buying another Miata when this one finally dies, which I hope will not be for a long time.
My favorite features are the speakers in the headrest, convertible top, wood trim and leather seats. Still a great looker.
A little more power would have been nice, but overall a great car.
