Illustration for article titled Are NB Miatas Actually As Reliable as Everyone Says They Are?

I’m on the hunt for a new DD and came across this NB for sale near me that looks pretty nice and is well under budget. Thing is that my commute is around 25k miles a year (pretty much all highway) so whatever I get is going to have to stand up to that kind of driving and while people consistently praise Miatas for being cheap and reliable, I don’t know if that’s relative to other sports cars or if a 17-year old Miata is actually a defensible choice for an everyday car (practicality notwithstanding). Any high-mileage NB owners care to share their experiences or have some tips for what to look out for when seeing/driving the car in person? Thanks!
