More Fun Than My 500SL
By RichTampa on


1996 Mazda MX-5 Miata M-Edition 2dr Convertible


I like convertibles. Take that back, I LOVE convertibles. My last two where a Caddy Allante and a Mercedes 500 SL, respectively. They were both big, gas guzzling V8 powered "sports cars"... neither one could come close to the providing the day-to-day fun of my new Mazda Miata. I did my research. These cars are bullet-proof; something my high-line roadsters lacked. I am 6'5" and fit fine inside the car, a tad cramped on longer runs, but fine for under 100 mile trips. Bottom line ... if you are looking for a reliable, safe (dual air bags & aftermarket roll bars), economical and is a blast to drive and be seen in, your search is over. I bought mine 70+k in great shape for under $5k. I LOVE IT.

Best Features

Handling, economy, ragtop. Miata clubs and add-ons available online.

Worst Features

It's the right mix of sport and durability...ok, maybe the whole cupholder thingy for my wife (may install an aftermarket upgrade I have seen online).
