Up for auction here is a 1991 Mazda Miata convertible.  Always adult driven.

The Good:
-Engine runs fine, no issues here.  Starts every time, idles normally, revs smoothly.  Still averaging 30-34 MPG on country roads.  No smoke or weird noises.
-Transmission is working fine as well.  Shifts are crisp and positive.  Clutch was replaced at 104,000 miles and works great.
-Brakes are in good shape.  Recent new front calipers and rotors.  New brake lines to the rear about a year ago. Stops straight.
-The interior is in pretty good shape, not perfect but pretty nice for a 23-year old daily driver.
-New alternator last year.
-New battery in 2012
-New fuel pump in 2011.

The Bad:
-It's going to need a front end alignment.  It veers a little to the right.  
-The air conditioning will need a charge.
-The power steering is not functional.  It's drive-able but takes some arm strength when going slow.  The pump will need to be replaced if you don't like the workout.  No fan belt noises though.
-The front tires should probably be replaced soon.  One of the back tires is less than a year old and the other might be around three years old.  
-The oil pressure gauge is not functional.

The Ugly:
-The headlights don't sit right in the down position so I just leave them up.  Could be an easy fix, I don't know. I haven't really been bothered by it.
-While the top is in generally good condition, the back window is not.  It is going to need to be replaced.  Look at the pictures.
-Leather shifter boot is torn.
-It's rusty.

This has been a very dependable and fun car for over ten years.  I have had very few problems with it and most of the issues are wear related.  The motor has never been modified.  The car has never been raced.  No boyracer fast and furious nonsense.  Regular oil changes with full synthetic.  If you have any questions, feel free to email me. I would encourage you to try and see the car before making a bid.  There will be no refunds.  This is a 23-year old car so know what you're bidding on.  You must come and pick up the car.  It is completely drive-able so no need for a trailer.  But I can help you get it on a trailer if that is how you want to pick it up.  I can hold the car as long as it is paid in full.  Talk to me.  I am quite free until October 1st.  Then I get busy.  Try to get the car before then.  Thanks for looking!

Next-gen Mazda MX-5 Miata mule spied 'Ring testing

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 11:27:00 EST

Fans of simple, lightweight motoring, rejoice - we now have images of the next-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata undergoing testing at der Nürburgring Nordschleife. Now, to be fair, this isn't some lightly camouflaged example that will give us a great peak of what the next Miata, which will also become the next Alfa Romeo Spider, will look like. This is a mule, with the new bits hidden under a current Miata's body. That doesn't mean there aren't a few scraps of valuable information here, though.
According to our flock of camera-toting spies at the Nürburgring, the next Miata is likely to grow a bit, as new models are wont to do. In particular, it will be longer and wider, and the wheelbase is likely going to be stretched, based on the shape of the wheel wells and doors. Both of those factors will add more space in the cabin.
Those are the big indications provided by these photos, but while the MX-5 might be growing, it's a safe bet based on these images that it, and the (likely pricier) Alfa, will retain the classic, long-hood, short-deck styling that so typifies rear-drive roadsters.

Mazda3 sales off to rocky start despite massive critical acclaim

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 11:30:00 EST

Like just about every other auto publication we've seen, we loved the way the Mazda3 drove when we reviewed it a few months ago, but those glowing reviews apparently aren't helping its sales. The new compact may be falling victim to a sales war between the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic, with the newcomer getting squeezed out by those with more established names and bigger marketing budgets.
According to Automotive News, Mazda3 sales have fallen every month since last August, and its sales are down 27 percent in the first two months of 2014. It certainly isn't helping that the entire compact segment is down five percent this year as well.
The biggest problem for the new model seems to be its price compared to rivals. Mazda is not offering the incentives that are on the hood of competitors. With the previous generation, the company offered more than $2,700 on the hood to move them out, but the current model only carries about $1,233 in markdowns, according to AN.

2014 Mazda3

The Cure For The Common Corolla
I hate the Toyota Corolla. I'm not talking about the new 2014 model; I can't yet judge a car I haven't driven. I'm referring to the current, old-as-dirt sedan. As an appliance, I get why people buy it, but it represents everything that I, as a car enthusiast, dislike. I don't like looking at it, I don't like sitting in it, and I really don't like driving it. There is absolutely no amount of emotion dialed into any part of the Corolla experience and every other vehicle in the segment is a far better choice. But still, somehow, Toyota sells 'em like hotcakes.
Thankfully, there are a lot of people who agree with me. And for folks like us, companies like Mazda exist. This small Japanese automaker places emotion and driver involvement as its top priorities when creating new products, and mostly - especially in recent years - the end results have been great. The new CX-5 crossover is a doll, to say nothing of the rakish and lovely new Mazda6 that launched earlier this year. And let's not forget the Miata...
