This is my second Miata - the first was a new 96, this one I got, loaded, with 58.5K on the clock for just shy of $9k. Have had the belts replaced - all other 60K servicing was done by the dealer I bought it from before they delivered.
A really engaging driving experience, near-perfect handling, great gas mileage, thoroughly dependable.
Never fails to bring a smile to my face top up or down, rain or shine.
Smiles per cent per mile. The perfect second car.
Brakes aren't the strongest. Mazda quality control is excellent with the exception of the poor-fit carpeting - both sides are coming loose from sill. Happened on my new one too.
