Mazda MX-5 1996 FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda MX-5 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Should I buy a used MX-5?
The MX-5 is a great little sports car for someone looking for some fun on the road.
The earliest ones are getting a little long in the tooth and are looking a little tired.
Go for an NC model, that's from 2005-on, and you shouldn't go wrong. They're reliable, user-friendly, they look good, and they're great fun to drive.
Look for a low-mileage example and avoid any that look like they might have been used in competition.Show more
Best options for a fun convertible?
The easiest question on record. Get an MX-5 and you'll have all the sunshine and fun you want. The only problem will be choosing between the 1.6 and 2.0-litre engines. Most prefer the "big-bore" engine but I like the engagement you get with the smaller one.Show more
Mustang, 370Z, IS350F, 86 or MX-5?
If you don’t want a convertible, which rules out the MX-5 as my easy first pick, then the 86 is the car for driving enjoyment on a reasonable budget. But don’t overlook its Subaru twin, the BRZ, which is my choice of the two. Both get The Tick, having shared our Car of the Year award.Show more
