2000 LS - Reliable and Fun
By Brandon on


2000 Mazda MX-5 Miata LS 2dr Convertible


This car has been a blast. Super reliable and fun to drive. This is my daily driver as well and the car saw an icy New Jersey winter last year. Was fine with a set of 4 snow tires. I only broke the end loose once. These cars are a great buy and will last well beyond 200k miles with some TLC. I think the 160-180hp range would have been better suited for the car as it feels kind of slow down low with lack of torque. If you're looking for a low maintenance, reliable 2 seater convertible, this car is probably for you.

Best Features

Rear wheel drive with a Limited Slip Diff. on the LS model, manual top easy to put down. The motor is bulletproof and extremely reliable, even taking it to the 7000 rpm redline daily. Also has a great online community and support.

Worst Features

Coilpack failure is somewhat common on the 99-00 causing misfires. Cupholders are terrible. Cheap plastics inside and the Bose audio system is horrible. The leather seats barely have any bolsters, so going around a curve will slide you around. Not the best car for taller drivers.
