Simply Outstanding

My son and I own this car. Easy to work on, inexpensive parts and pure driving pleasure. This is our second Miata. The N/A, first generation Miata's have a special place with enthusiasts. I'd be weary of heavily modified versions from backyard mechanics.

4.4

One of my all time favorite cars

A lot of people hate on these but that's just because they've never driven one themselves. It handles unlike any car I've ever driven and is so easy to work on. There's also a plethora of aftermarket parts. One of my favorite cars by far.

4.3

Fun and Reliable Car

Fun car to drive, it's small but I'm 6ft tall and fit in it just fine. Handles like it's on rails, great little parking lot racer or high gas mileage daily driver.
