Super Sport by Chuck on 06/23/2010. Trim: 1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata Base, Owned 2 years.
Pros: This car is a kick in the tail to drive. Nothing like the wind in your hair and a 20 year old car purring under you. Holds the road like it is glued to it. Hard to believe that a convertable has an excelllent air conditioner, but this car does. Heater is also excellent.
Cons: Watch out for the date of engine manufactire - I got stuck with a bad timing belt/crankshaft and ended up having to get a different engine. Make sure you follow the service of the timing belt. The electrical system can be difficult to supply the window motors and interior lifghts.
Overall review: I probably have more ion the car than it is worth. But I think I will be buried in it. Lots of fun. 30+ miles to the gallon at 60+ mph.

Twenty Years of extended youth! by Retired, go around me...if you can catch me! on 03/25/2010. Trim: 1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata Base, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: After 20 years, I still love driving it, & people can't believe it's a 1990 car!
Cons: Not a thing.
Overall review: My Miata looks as good as it did in Jan 1990...when I first drove it home from the dealer. It's an amazing machine & everything still works...air, flip up headlight covers, power windows, cruise control, clutch...even the adrenalin rush !!!

inexpensive fun! by Joe on 01/06/2010. Trim: 1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata Base, Owned 9 years.
Pros: 20 years old and you can't kill the engine. Change the oil every 3k miles and add a shot of slik-50. Fun to drive and you can park it anywhere worry free.
Cons: After 20 years the interior dash is starting to fall apart.
Overall review: This car has more value than what is worth! You can replace the top yourself for $450.

A great sports carr by An MSN Autos Consumer on 03/20/2008. Trim: 1990 Mazda MX-5 Miata Base, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Very reliabile. A grest sporty convertible at a great price. Used parts cheap and available--easy to work on yourself.
Cons: Be sure to keep drain holes at base of top and front window seal clean. If buying a used Miata check floorboards for potential rust from pooling water if top leaked or drain holes were plugged. Be sure to change timing belt per manufacturers guidelines.
Overall review: Fun to drive and own, cheap to maintain gets 26+ mpg with properly tuned engine
