Nothing's wrong with them, here australia we call them MX5's. Personally I think they are great cars.

I love miatas. I was in the market for a one a couple months ago but just my rotten luck. It was the beginning of summer, the demand for the car was high and i couldn't find any in my price range. I needed a car immediately and thats when i spotted my current car.

The NC(the 3rd gen) miata is a nice re-working of the original classic. I think its a worthy successor and brings the miata into the modern age.

I'd get one if they could fit people over 5'10 in them. Looks like in a few years i might be able to get a new '06 Miata.

My friend owns one, he is like 6'1. He has no problem fitting in it. The head room seems fine but not the width, the seats are so narrow and the shoulder room tight. if you over like 300 lb, you won't be able to close the door

Okay.. well I'm 6'5. So... heh. And my height is in my torso...not legs. Maybe I can finally ride in a Miata with the top up with this new 06 model!

That SOOO IS the real concept car. That was in tons of magazines right when it debuted.

look for the "big ugly post" about miatas (i think it's a sticky). ignore the massive flame war it developed into, but read the first posts.

MX5's(miata's) are over priced for to little performance... if you really want one to go hard you've gotta get a 13bt for it and spend a good dollar on a new box and clutch combo...

just to expensive for to little performance...
