1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible

Review

This is my second Miata, and I still love it everytime I see it and get it for a drive. Build quality went down from my first (a 1990), but I may be nitpicking. I've driven alot of of other sports cars, but not many compare, because the Miata is so light and communicative. You don't need fancy electronics to get you out of trouble the miata tells you, and the car has the ability to get you out of trouble. Only when you start getting into the 50K+ range do you get something comparable, but still those drive so dryly and clinically. It just doesn't seem to be an experience.

Favorite Features

Handling, communication between the car and driver, and sheer enjoyment of driving on a nice day with the top down.

Suggested Improvements

Power is always nice, but I have driven turbocharged, and supercharged miatas, but it doesn't seem to increase the driving experience.
