1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


Its obvious-fun car to drive. Needs more
ummph off the line. High RPMs while fwy
driving (4k@73mph) 6th gear should be
OD. Economical (30mpg). Great build
quality. Image?-everyone has an opinion
when you buy this car ("mid-life
crisis?" or gender specific
pre-concieved notions as to
ownership...could be regional?). Tight
handling. Minimal trunk space. Useless
cupholders. Roll bar should be option.
Short throw shifter is A+. Overall great
car. No regrets - Buy this car.

Best Features

Handling, quality of build, reliability. Throwback to British roadsters of yore, but will run to 200K. Simplicity of design. Ease of drop top. Glass rear window. Clutch and shifter. Min. wind buffet w/top down. Pass. airbag disable switch A+. Priced right for what you get.

Worst Features

As noted: add hoop rollbar option, redesign placement of cupholder, deepen trunk, add grill to intake, add option for 40 more HP/factory turbo. Keep 'em rolling off the factory line.....
