1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


I have a black Miata with tan interior leather with the Nardi stick shifter. I was moving to Florida and wanted a weekend car. My first choice was a MR2, but no luck on one in good condition. My brother had a 91 with 170000 miles with no problems so I bought one. I have not done any major work in 6 years. Only oil changes, put synthetic gear fluid and a set of plugs and air filter. I did have to replace the top but for 560 dollars including labor you can't beat. I am running Mobil 1 synthetic and I get 31 MPG and tha'ts with the air running half the time. Anyone looking for an inexpensive convertible and does not mind go-cart type ride and handling then this is the car for you.

Best Features

The short throw stick shift, rear end, the speakers in the head rest, and the way the engine purrs at 60 mph and above.

Worst Features

More leg room, an armrest on the door, more storage compartments, a dome light up around the mirror.
