Makes Me Smile
By Capt. Joe on


1996 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


This car make me smile every time I drive it. Wanted one for quite a while and a year ago found one in good shape cheap. Customized some of the exterior and put her up for the winter. Changed the oil and put a new battery in this spring. I am middle aged and had MG, Fiat, Triumph etc. convertibles from the 60's and 70's. Miata MX-5 has all the best characteristics and traits of all these cars with none of the problems. Starts, runs, super reliable, no electrical problems when it rains. Top super easy to use. Great exhaust note. Winds easily to 6500 rpm and get 27 mpg when you beat on it. Don't buy this car with a auto transmission. Quick fun to drive. My wife and I are reliving out youth.

Best Features

Crisp handling. Nice exhaust note. Easy opening top. Wind in your hair excitement.

Worst Features

Wouldn't change a thing except buy a newer one.
