Great handling car with a good shifter. It could use more power, but it is adequate if the revs are kept up. The great thing about the older NA cars is that 99% of the stock parts are still available and there is a big after market for go-fast parts.

Ratings & Reviews
Most fun & reliable car for the money. Sorry the newer ones are not made as well. Love my Miata!! Pros: Fun to drive, extremely reliable, very inexpensive regarding fuel usage & maintenance. Great engine. Cons: Small, loud noise from road noise, lousy stereo, convertible clips don't last as long as the car & same goes for center console...to much plastic in interior (doesn't do well in heat in southern states) no luxury but great design for price point
Instead of driving a car just because it's what I can afford, this car I love! It's the first car I really want to keep! It's a neat sensation to drive an awesome car. Every Miata owner knows it too, and every single one that I've met is very friendly, with that shared-experience camaraderie. No reason you can't have a little fun every Monday morning...
It's treated me very well for the amount of money put into it over the years. It's a car that will get you around and you can enjoy the road in it's simplicity. It's been well worth my money. OMG
