1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


About 2 months ago I bought a 1994 Miata equipped with the B-Package and ABS. It had 53,XXX miles on it, had never been in an accident, and had all the records. I got the car for $3,000. This has hands down been one of the best gamble of my life. I absolutely loves this little car. Its a blast to drive, still feels as solid as a rock (especially for an mid 90's convertible), gets great gas mileage, and looks absolutely stunning. And, what surprised me is it actually sounds good for a 4 cylinder. Plus, The car fits my family and I perfectly (I'm the tallest at 5'8"). I expect many more happy, fun filled miles in this two seater.

Best Features

Fuel economy, having the ability to put the top down, exhaust note, precise 5-speed manual with short throws, build quality, A/C, its comfortable for average sized people, having ABS, small storage nooks and crannies (pouch behind the passanger seat, 2 door pouches, glover box, center console box, and self behind the seats), the handling, and the constant compliments I get about the car (I was very surprised when I noticed this car still turns heads).

Worst Features

Ground clearance, it can be hard to get out of, no roll bar, questionable safety on todays roads, some road roughness can upset the ride/handling, trunk size, manual top with boot cover takes a few minutes to put down or up, luckily though, putting the top up takes less time.
