1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


Purchased this car with 58K in March as a daily driver. Already put 10K add is drives great. Gas mileage is awesome. Had to replace the master & slave on the clutch -- plastic cracks after 10 years. Also, just put in new plugs, wires and timing belt. Runs like new! I drive 40 miles each way to work and love to drop the top on nice days. It makes the commute in ATL way more tolerable. Drove from Atlanta to Jacksonville, FL - 6 hours one way. The car was more comfortable than you would expect on a long drive. Don't get me wrong. This is not the optimal distance car but you won't be miserable on long drives.

Best Features

Easy manual top, 5 speed acceleration and above all else great tight handling. Most fun on tight curvy mountain roads. Car is very reliable and inexpensive for general maintenance. Treat it right and it will reward you for a long time.

Worst Features

Lots of complaints about cup holder. The bottom line is it really doesn't have one. I wedge bottled drink behind the passenger seat and it works fine.
