FUN FUN FUN

3rd owner with 104,00 miles I asked myself what am I doing buying this type of car? I have two other cars but this is the one I drive every chance I get. Cause its fun fun fun. Fast and Zippy , hugs the road thru the turns. Beautiful car, lots of stares!

Fun, reliable, dependable, easy to work on

Really an amazing car. Mazda just hit the mark for a fun to drive roadster without requiring sacrifice in terms of longevity, reliability or dependability. The handling is balanced and forgiving, while maintaining a reasonably comfortable ride. It has enough power and though it won't win a stoplight drag race it will embarrass much more powerful cars on a twisty road.

Love the car!

Perfect Car. Great price too. We couldn't have been happier! Thank you Fitz Automart and team under Jeff S. Most likely we will return for future Mazdas. This is our first Mazda.

Fun Fun Fun

The most fun reliable convertible ever. This car is meant to be driven with the top down. This is not an ideal daily driver. It is noisy with the top up. It’s for partly sunny 77 degree days. Got it? Good....

It claws the road.

Fun drive. Small trunk. Enjoyable ride always. Mine was broken into twice with a cut through the top. I finally sold it, because the interior window fogging became dangerous.

One of the best I have owned

The car handling is amazing, and this generation looks similar to RX7 FD, it looks cool also drive cool. And it is very reliable car for sure, the part is cheap so it won't take too much money to own one.

Great car and excellent mpg

Fun to drive; lots of compliments

Great car! Fun to drive and people in other cars or walking by constantly complimenting the car. Other Miata owners often honk when we pass. Only the 10th Anniversary Edition for me

Best car I've owned!

I've owned this car for eleven years and am selling because I bought a 2014 Miata. I've had no complications with this car in all of this time and I've put 75,000 miles on her! Edmunds says the 1999 is one of the best years for Miatas. It's been so much fun, the way it hugs the road, the way it looks like it's moving when it's sitting still... I have loved every minute of owning this car.
