A great car

1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


This is my second Miata, and I still
love it everytime I see it and get it
for a drive. Build quality went down
from my first (a 1990), but I may be
nitpicking. I've driven alot of of
other sports cars, but not many compare,
because the Miata is so light and
communicative. You don't need fancy
electronics to get you out of trouble
the miata tells you, and the car has the
ability to get you out of trouble. Only
when you start getting into the 50K+
range do you get something comparable,
but still those drive so dryly and
clinically. It just doesn't seem to be
an experience.

Best Features

Handling, communication between the car and driver, and sheer enjoyment of driving on a nice day with the top down.

Worst Features

Power is always nice, but I have driven turbocharged, and supercharged miatas, but it doesn't seem to increase the driving experience.
