The 2002 Mazda Miata mx-5 is a great affordable sports car.

Great car! Very fun to drive and efficient in terms of gas mileage. The Mazda Miata also makes a great first project car. There are not too many problems other than servicing breaks, tires, etc. However, the water pump/ radiator is going bad due to the fact that the car wants to overheat with the a/c on during the hot summer days of Texas. Shouldn't be much of an issue if you live in cool areas. Parts are readily available as well so fixing isn't an issue. Handling on this car is also great. Fun little sports car for anyone wanting an affordable sports car.

Mazda miata is a great car.

The car is great value for a sports car. Although old, the mileage is really great. All Mazda Miatas do well on mileage. It is reliable. It can be a little daunting driving on the highway because the car is so tiny. You can hear the wind hitting the roof of the car. There is not a auxiliary but it is easy to install one. The roof is cloth because it is a convertible. It is a great car all around, if you love driving.

They don't make them like this anymore. It will be hard to buy another car.

I have had minor problems with the past couple of years (battery, transmission, and belts) that are more due to age than any failings of the car manufacturer. It was very reliable when it was fairly used. The bucket seat are fairly comfortable.
