This is my third Miata after owning a
1990 and then a 1994 model. I have
owned many cars from cheap imports to a
Lexus LS 400. In my opinion the Miata
is the most trouble free car on the
road to own and operate, and a joy to
drive. I put over 100,000 miles on the
first one and only replaced an $8
headlight (excluding routine oil
changes, tires, and filters). The only
weakness I have seen in these cars is
that the OEM spark plug wires do not
last that long. Replacement spark plug
wire set will last for another 100,000
miles and cost around $30-35. This car
is always a blast to drive and will
never leave you stranded.
Awesome mechanical reliability, great
build quality, fun to drive, averages
about 25 mpg city and 28-29 highway!
