Problem Free & Blast to Drive
By Ktoes on
Vehicle1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible
ReviewPurchased this car used in 2001 as an
anniversary present. My wife & I have
never had as much fun driving before
this. Engine is tight and cornering is
a joy. Short-throw shifter is the
best. Most important, I just change
oil and go(Synthetic every 7500).
Never had a mechanical problem in 2 yrs
(70K miles). I am continuely impressed
with the body design--a work of art.
Be careful not to become a dangerous
driver in city traffic due to its
acceleration & quick manuevering. Not
a bad weather car or for drivers over
Best FeaturesEasy convertible top to put up & down. Smileable acceleration & cornering. Every day I admired the body design. Glass rear window w/defogger. Easy to wash. Lots of aftermarket accessories. Darn good clean fun to drive!
Worst FeaturesDifficult to get in & out of for middle-aged geezers like me. Trunk keylock too low-scratch bumper. Ignition key too hard to find in dark. Needs to come standard w/rollbar. Trunk needs gas-strut to hold up. All of these minor things have aftermarket fixes. Oil filter hard to change.
