3 year love affair
By Kiko J on


1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata STO 2dr Convertible


I bought my used Miata 3 years ago and
decided not to sell it when I moved from
Florida to Michigan. In the snow I had
my share of little problems but dringin
top-down during spring/summer makes up
for it and more. The Miata is an
amazing car. Not only is it reliable
but has a great design, I like the old
box more than the new one but the new
one still is cool. No problems except a
failure with both the master and slave
cylinder with the total cost being $400.
For 3 years it ain't bad. I am torn
between the RX-8 and the Mazdaspeed
Miata for my next car; but I can say
that Mazda delivers more performance for
your buck than any other car manufacturer.

Best Features

Handling, looks, stereo, reliability.

Worst Features

Space, what else? More hp (has been taken care of in 2004!) and like many have said those cupholders behind the stick shift.
