Mazda Miata Cars For Sale

Mazda Miata Cars For Sale – Happy, young and carefree. I could never imagine an angry Miata driver, let alone a Miata driver with road rage. The Mazda Miata, or MX-5, has been around since 1989 and is currently in its fourth generation, the ND. Here is the third generation Miata, NC. This is pre-Sky Active and pre-Mazda and Ford’s divorce from the Miata. Actually, this Miata is the NC1 Miata. The NC Miata had a facelift in 2009 (NC2) and another in 2013 (NC3).

This time we have to thank Martin for providing us with this car for a Cars Malaysia review.

Martin has had this car for over 5 years and the car was originally silver in color with a 6 speed automatic transmission (torque converter). This is the hard-top version. Some Miata buyers will opt for the soft-top version because it’s more prone to rollover in the cabin. Manual transmission Miatas are also hard to come by in our used market, so those looking for a manual Miata usually end up with a manual transmission conversion. This has been translated.

The Mazda Miata Isn’t The Affordable Entry Sports Car It Used To Be

Why did Martin buy a Miata? His first car in Gran Turismo was an NA Miata. It is so simple.

The MX-5 is a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive car with a 4-cylinder NA (naturally aspirated) engine. Small road racers are usually associated with older British car manufacturers (MG, Triumph, Austin-Healey, etc.), but the Japanese also have notable small roofless cars such as the Miata, Toyota MR-S and S2000. Of course, things get smoother with the Suzuki Cappuccino, Honda Beat and Honda S660.

The Mazda Miata has a 50-50 weight distribution, which I doubted at first when Martin told me. I hear this almost every time people talk about FR cars. Well, to prove this point, Mazda made this video balancing the MX-5. If we still want to argue whether this video has any tricks, maybe we can try this experiment ourselves if we have the budget for it.

Unlike the Honda S2000 and Toyota MR-S, the Mazda Miata is still in showrooms in 2018. A new ND Mazda Miata will set you back RM241,198.00 (OTR without insurance).

If we were to shop the used market, a Miata NC would still be over RM100k, but they are mostly automatics. Miata NA (1.8 Manual) can be sold for RM50k. There are more NAs and NBs on with the lowest at RM50k and the highest at RM75k with the 1.6 engine.

However, if you want to try track or autocross on a budget, I personally recommend the Proton Satria. It’s cheaper to tear them down and fix them up if you start now. Miatas may be a very popular segment in other countries such as the US, UK and New Zealand, but they are still quite expensive in Malaysia.

The Mazda Miata is fun, but a little claustrophobic (top down). This is still a traditional fun car with power steering, mechanical parking brake, standard 6-speed manual transmission, analog gauges and no push button start. I like this. It’s more forgiving and easier to drive than cars like the Toyota Corolla AE86 and Nissan Skyline R32. Martin installed a short-shifter, so I expect driving a stock NC Miata with a stock shifter would be much smoother. The throttle is also electronic which I believe contributes to the smooth power delivery the Miata has at low revs.

The ride is engaging, the steering feedback excellent. Shifting is fun and 2nd and 3rd gears have very good range. While it’s definitely straight-tube mounted, the car isn’t really that strong even top to bottom. It’s comfortable at low speeds and doesn’t shake when you put it down. I expected a less comfortable ride from a car this size, but I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the ride was.

* The car had a SARD mid pipe but the catalytic converter was shot. A straight piece of pipe is welded instead.

Getting inside can be claustrophobic for some. The car is low, small and rear-wheel drive. The gearbox already takes up a lot of space in the cabin. Everything is very close to you from the steering wheel, the gear knob, the parking brake and the roof. What I like about the cabin is that you can rest your left hand completely on the armrest while changing gears. What’s missing is the floor-mounted gas pedal now found in all Mazda cars. It makes driving more attractive and puts your foot in a more comfortable position.

The image above shows the 2015 Mazda 2 foot pedal layout I tested earlier. Unfortunately, Mazda hasn’t quite nailed it yet with the NC1 Mazda Miata. The ND Miata has a floor-mounted gas pedal. Having tested 2 Mazdas, I have to say the ride has never let me down.

The seats are Nissan Skyline R34 semi-bucket seats, wrapped in different upholstery (including the steering wheel) to match the Martin’s interior.

As mentioned earlier, this is a pre-Mazda and Ford divorce. Therefore, Ford has the right to build and use this engine under the Duratec brand. Mazda calls it the MZR engine, short for “MaZda Responsive.”

This Mazda MX-5 Miata NC features a DOHC LF-VE 2.0L naturally aspirated 16-valve engine. The NC1’s interior isn’t a proper fake interior, and Mazda improved that in the facelifted NC2. There is a one in a million chance of an engine oil withdrawal problem (with the NC1) and unfortunately this happened to Martin’s Mazda Miata on one occasion.

This issue was resolved when the Mazda NC2 was released and included other improvements such as better suspension geometry. I believe things got more refined when the NC3 was introduced, if you’re looking for an NC Miata, a safer choice would be to go for the NC3 (the NC3 basically isn’t in Malaysia. You can go for the NC2. Instead).

The NC1 is also guilty of using unreliable plastic parts. An example of this is the cooling tank. As for the plastics, the threads on the coolant reservoir cap wore out, so Martin replaced it with an aftermarket coolant reservoir from Moroso.

I love the Mazda Miata. It’s a fun car. It is small, nimble and very attractive to drive. But in Malaysia it’s not as affordable as other countries like UK, US, New Zealand (even used Miatas). This particular Miata is the NC1. Obviously the NC2 or NC3 would be a better choice (if you’re looking for an NC) as the car has been further redone following feedback.

For this happiness. The Miata will put a smile on your face (unless there’s a 1 in a million accidental engine oil leak). It is a rear wheel drive small car with an open top and a 2.0 liter engine. I think the Miata is perfect for stress relief driving.

It seems wise, we are all entitled to our own opinion. To me, the NC Miata still has a nice happy face despite the evil smile of the ND Miata. For a more attractive face, you can try looking at the NA Miata with pop-up lights.

. With the obligatory MX-5 answer out of the way, let’s take a look at this all-yellow 2016 model that could be yours if you wanted it. It is currently up for auction

That’s because this 2016 MX-5 is the same car that Engineering’s Jason Fenske once stripped down. It debuted on his YouTube channel three years ago as a stock triple-black Miata. In his care, a yellow leaf was added to refresh the look, but under the hot tamale hat. According to the auction listing, you’ll find an Edelbrock supercharger installed, but don’t take the auctioneer’s word for it. Fenske installed the supercharger in an EE video that still powers the sports car to this day.

Fame) bought it from Fenske in July 2022 and according to the auction description it still has the same models. The engine features three linked tunes for different performance levels, with dyno graphics showing a maximum of 210 horsepower at the wheels. It doesn’t sound like much in the age of 300-horsepower minivans, but it carries a svelte 2,300-pound sports car with a six-speed stick. Trust us, it’s a great recipe for fun.
