I bought my 96 Miata two years ago. In good running condition with IÂm assuming 120K. Since then she has been across state lines, driven 103 MPH down deserted highways, been my daily driver and is the closest to heaven IÂve ever been
I am not good at maintaining my cars, I forget
until something goes wrong. SheÂs had an oil link since I bought her and once in a while she ends up bone dry and ticky but as soon as I add oil sheÂs right as rain. The speedo cable squeals..not a big deal. all in all she still runs like a powerhorse roadster should, has saved my life with epic handling. I'll never own anything but a Miata. ever.

Yep, you read that right! My previous car was a '98 Boxster. The Porsche was superior in almost every way, except I enjoy driving the Miata EVEN MORE! Handling is second only to the Lotus Elise, on par with an S2000, and better than the Boxster, for a fraction of the cost to buy and maintain. You just can't go wrong with this car.
