The little red engine that could
By imanah on


1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


it is my primary car and has been very
good to me. Things I have learned;
1. Having it as a primary car in the
Northeast is not so safe or practical.
I reccomend having an alternative in
the winter due to its low weight.
2. A Nice audio system and a plastic
window is an invitation to have your
car broken into with anything from a
razor to a houshold knife.
3. People think you are rich if you
have a miata, as if it was a porch :)

Best Features

1. Eye catching. 2. Excellent for summer nights with the top down, crusing on the expressway. 3. Reliable of course. 4. Two seats means I wont be driving 5. I can just unzip the back window if I want the feeling of a convertable without the lack of privacy.

Worst Features

For the 97 model you get what you get. I think if mazda put tiny speakers in the seats that would of been cool. Definatly a plastic window is not the strong point of the vehicle. Also being low to the ground, makes the miata suseptable to lower body damage.
