1996 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


The Miata 1996 vintage is a wonderful
car overall and amazingly reliable.
Such dependability is probably due to
the car's inherent simplicity. It is a
fine example of balance. The power,
weight, size, handling ability, all
work together as a unit. Beefs about
trunk size are unfounded. The wife and
I have driven from Nashville to Toronto
as well as various other trips to Ohio
and Florida with no problems. Don't
waste your time with "exotic" Eurojunk.
Get a Miata.

Best Features

Simplicity = less stuff to break; Great gas mileage; one can use nearly 100% of the car's potential driving to the grocery; amazing aftermarket; incredible reliability

Worst Features

Perhaps a bit more horsepower and torque; an oil filter one can actually get to
