This is my first car. I inherited it from my dad. I absolutely love this car. If you take care of it, it will take care of you! I have an ES trim, with the bigger engine and alloys. The ES trim is a must. My car currently has 192,000 miles on it, and It will not die anytime soon.
Moonroof, suspension, amazing engine (ES models have the same engine of a 1995 Miata), supportive seats, fun to drive.
Needs a 6th gear for the sake of fuel economy. Exhaust header pipes break routinely, and the interior plastic panels have rattled from day 1.
