Excellent, 10 out of 10. Buy one
Battery went flat first few weeks. Cost $220 Australian.
Seats wear driver side.
Timing belt must be changed at 100,000km's or sooner. Best do the water pump at the same time..
Great sports car that is not going cost you your house..
I also own 1991 BRG 1.6.. I need new rear window plastic; was burnt from sun. Need work on diff.. Alarm kept going off in the rain... Power window went up slow, needs work. Other than that, great sports car.
Most parts are cheap; there are MX5 wrecker yards all over Australia.. Also new parts as well from Mazda Australia.
I ended up selling 1991 BRG MX5 to a Mazda dealer in late 1998.. Ended up buying a Clubman in 2000.. looking at buying all colors from MX5 starting 1989 to 1997.
Excellent sport cars for any age.. I got my first Mazda MX5 back in 1997, haven't looked back since...
They handle like go cart - excellent... I now own Clubman black, 1 of 7 in Australia... no power steering/no air con/1.8 motor/ LSD Diff/ comes with Bilstein shocks. All factory spec made for the race track...
I also owned a 1991 British racing green back in 1997.. Tan leather seats /CD player/ 1.6 motor/ numbered as well. Only 300 were imported from Mazda Australia, only 200 had the numbers.. Don't know why?
They're great. Investment prices will go up next few years. The MX5 is world's best selling sports car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
