1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


I bought this car for a daily driver one year ago with 100k miles. Now I'm at 115K and the only expenses have been a tuneup, new tires, and oil changes. It handles great, is fun to drive with the top down, and gets 25-30 m.p.g. Though small, it is solidly built. My son borrowed it for his Jr.-Sr. Prom, so my three kids (two teenagers and one married) like it too and occasionally ask to borrow it.

Best Features

Ease of lowering the top, power, handling.

Worst Features

I would settle for less power and better gas mileage.
