1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


Review

I highly recommend installing a supercharger on the miata. I purchased a used miata with a supercharger already installed. It feels like I'm driving a rocket powered go-cart. I'm probably pushing close to 200hp in a 2300lbs car. And to top it off, I get 28mpg with my foot in it all the time.


Best Features

Handling. Gas mileage.


Worst Features

Factory turbo or supercharger option.

1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata 10th Anniversary 2dr Convertible


Review

I have 10th Anniversary. It has been a reliable vehicle and I am still amazed that people comment on how good the car looks. I am happy with everything, but the power. It lacks power. It does. There is a circulating slogan that it is fun-to-drive. But it would have been infinitely much more fun if it had more power. I have no clue why Mazda is so reluctant to add reasonably powered engine to this wonderful roadster.


Best Features

Handling and responsiveness are excellent.


Worst Features

Needs inline six.

Review

I just picked up this 10th anniversary edition Miata with 100,000 miles on it. The car still runs and idles like new. No vibration at all. The paint is in very good condition. I love 6 speed manual tranny and dual tone interior design. Leather and suede buckets seats. The handling is excellent. RWD. I love this car. A nice Christmas present for myself


Best Features

6 speed tranny with LSD. Nardi edition. Bose stereo.


Worst Features

Need a power door lock switch.

My Miata has been a "blast" to drive! I drive an average of 900 miles a week! The Miata has NEVER let me down! No engine work or transmission work! Change the oil and filter every two weeks at approx. 2000 miles. Super car!!

NONE
