Affordable, reliable, fun/slick looking car!
I had to get a clutch job done around 90,000 miles. But that is expected, and I don't blame Mazda for it.
Power window slowed down around 90,000 miles as well, but no major problems.
I got in an accident with a CR-V during the first month I got the car. That's when I realized how strongly Mazda Miatas were built. Even with the damage that completely deformed the rear quarter panel, it runs strong without any fixes.
Its reliability is a pleasant surprise.
Performance-wise, most people think that going fast is what determines performance. It is certainly not a car made to be driven fast, but the handling is great.
It has a short shift stick, so it is very fun to drive around.
My Miata has went over 100,000 miles now, and is still running like a champ! A good buy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
