I bought a Miata due to everything I had read about this type of car. All of the reviews agreed on how dependale these cars are. The other factor was the fact that I wanted a fun car to drive to work everyday and the Miata is always described as a fun car.
I love the way the car looks going down the road with the top down. The 5 speed is really easy to drive. I really like the real glass window with the defogger.
