1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Convertible


I bought this used car with 55k miles for the fun, and it has delivered in spades. It's also surprisingly practical. Decent mileage (27 MPG in normal driving and 30 MPG hwy at 70 MPH), absolutely reliable, comfortable for this 5'11" 62 year-old. I find that I can transport most anything I want to with a little imagination. I've added a roll bar and so can even carry lumber in good weather. Overall, it's the easiest automotive smile I've encountered, is relatively inexpensive to purchase and earns its keep as well.

Best Features

The handling, hands down. Comfort is surprisingly good for me. The convertible top. Economy of operation and ease of maintenance. Did I mention handling?

Worst Features

The roll bar has added stiffness and, one hopes, safety - I'd add one to the option list. Otherwise, I'm happy.
