Holy Cow!
By japman on


1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


This car ain't a car - it's a way of
life. How many cars have owners clubs,
millions of accessories, newsgroups,
shows, hats & T-shirts? There is a
reason. Most other Miata owners on a
sunny day will pop their lights to say
hi on a crowded freeway. No problems,
zippy engine, european pizazz with
Japanese reliability & performance.
Cheap to buy, operate & maintain. Not
much pretention, but you can certainly
feel the jealous eyes coming from SUV's
on a warm Spring day.

Best Features

Top mechanics. Engine. handling. Power. Maintenence. the whole package on every year ever built.

Worst Features

Not too practical for use as your only commuter rocket. You may as well have a '72 Firebird in the snow...and carrying anything besides a single small bookbag or suitcase requires a hitch and trailer.
