1996 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible

Review

The Miata 1996 vintage is a wonderful car overall and amazingly reliable. Such dependability is probably due to the car's inherent simplicity. It is a fine example of balance. The power, weight, size, handling ability, all work together as a unit. Beefs about trunk size are unfounded. The wife and I have driven from Nashville to Toronto as well as various other trips to Ohio and Florida with no problems. Don't waste your time with "exotic" Eurojunk. Get a Miata.

Favorite Features

Simplicity = less stuff to break; Great gas mileage; one can use nearly 100% of the car's potential driving to the grocery; amazing aftermarket; incredible reliability

Suggested Improvements

Perhaps a bit more horsepower and torque; an oil filter one can actually get to
