1996 Miata MX-5 M Edition I bought this car Aug, 2015 with approximately 97k. SoI have put just about 2000 miles on it and always kept garaged even through thewinter. Never drove it in the winter. The body is rust free. No surface rust topor bottom. However I would consider this to be a drivers car. Meaning that thepaint has several dings and a few touch ups. It could use a paint job to be verynice. The silver stripe is a decal and can be easily removed if you prefer. TheM Edition comes with power windows, leather seats and ABS brakes. When Ipurchased the car It needed a timing belt and then I progressively started makeseveral other upgrades. The head was removed for a valve job, surfacing gasketmatching along with ALL NEW hydraulic lifters!Timing beltWater pumpMain bearingfrontExedy ClutchFidanza flywheelRear main bearingNew fluidRedline differential fluidWilwood big brakes kit from GoodwinRacingSteel brake linesMotul 600 brake fluidPerformance brake padsAvanti Storm9" wheels225/45/ZR15 Goodrich RivalsMega-Squirt pro tuned by Dyno Source,Waukegan IlA&M AFR gaugeGoodwin bump steer blocks Visible in extended lower control jointsRacing beat front swaybar with endlinksFeal 441 road race custom coilovers.

Mazda reports strong Skyactiv sales, plans to boost output 25%

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 17:32:00 EST

Mazda is set to expand production of its Skyactiv engines after critical and commercial acclaim for the fuel-sipping powerplants. The Japanese manufacturer has a number of plans in the works to bump up production, with the first being a 25-percent increase in output from its Hiroshima, Japan engine facility.
Besides adding a new line, Mazda will modify the line that built MZR engines, a family of mills that includes the 2.3-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder found in the Mazdaspeed3 and the 2.0-liter found in the MX-5 Miata. The bump in production is just part of Mazda's goal of selling 1.7 million vehicles globally by 2016, with 80 percent of those vehicles expected to wear a Skyactiv badge.
Mazda also builds Skyactiv engines at a joint-venture facility with Ford, in Changan, China, while a Mexican facility will go online by March of 2014. Skyactiv engines currently power the Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5.

Xcar tries to figure out what makes the Miata so great

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 17:00:00 EST

Over the past 25 years and 3 model generations, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has shown that you don't have to be the best to be a massive success. The little, Japanese roadster has never been the absolute peak of automotive performance, but it's precise handling, good reliability and frugal running costs have helped make it a star. Autoblog recently tried to give you the experience of driving one on video, and now Xcar Films has made its own in an attempt to show what makes this droptop an icon.
As Xcar puts it, the Miata isn't the world's best sports car, but it is the world's favorite. When they were originally designing the roadster, Mazda's engineers took everything that made British droptops from the '60s great, and junked all of the stuff that made them a terror to own. The result was a car that would start up everyday with no fuss and get drivers wherever they needed to go with a huge grin on their face.
The fourth-generation Miata is imminently on the way for its September 3 unveiling, and the very early rumors indicate that Mazda doesn't plan to rock the boat too much with the latest one. It supposedly rides on a longer wheelbase and wider track but with the weight trimmed by over 200 pounds. Check out Xcar's video for a primer on MX-5 history and why the automotive world loves this little roadster.

Honda may recall up to 1M vehicles for airbag issue, following Toyota's lead

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 15:30:00 EST

It seems Toyota won't be the only one recalling the faulty Takata airbag inflators for long. Honda insiders in Japan claim that the company is getting close to announcing its own worldwide campaign that would begin before the end of June.
Unnamed sources close to Honda in Japan tell Automotive News that the company is pursuing an internal investigation into possibly affected models and is working with Takata to gather more information. They claim that it could involve even more than the 1.14 million cars worldwide that the automaker covered under the first recall for the problem in April 2013, including 561,000 vehicles in the US.
Toyota jumpstarted this process last week when it recalled over 2 million cars worldwide, including 844,277 in the US. Soon after, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began a preliminary evaluation into the issue following six reported incidents, and started assembling data about potentially affected models from Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Chrysler. NHTSA also began investigating Takata itself.
