TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata

2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearComment
2016 The new Mazda MX-5 Miata is, well, new, so TrueDelta has no reliability data on it. But past Miatas have all been reliable, and other current Mazdas have been reliable, so there's little reason to think that the new Miata won't be. MINIs, though not on average as bad as their reputation suggests, have been considerably less reliable than Miatas. And, if you do get a bad one, too often it's horror-story bad. Scion FR-Ss initially suffered from a few common issues, but the average for the 2013s has been improving and the 2014s have been good. full 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata review
