Fully Restored by the 10,000-Mile Mark - 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Convertible Long-Term Road Test

The odometer in our 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata just hit 10,000 miles. We'll have to be diligent about taking it on road trips if we're going to make it to our 20,000-mile goal.

    Really not a huge fan of that gauge. It's a little confusing. A little cluttered. And very dated. Also, cramming a rectangular screen into a round binnacle makes me wonder if they were favoring form or function or neither.
  • "The road trips helped increase the Miata's overall fuel economy from 29.1 mpg in the first 5,000 miles to 30.1 mpg overall. That lands us a hair above the EPA's Combined estimate. We don't see that very often for sports cars."

    That's a shocker. You don't see sports cars that weigh under 2,400 lbs and have only 155 horsepower very often, either.

    LegacyGT - that gauge is perfectly legible and regular drivers will know what it all means.

    Though it's a cheaper display in that it uses an old fashioned segmented display, it gets the job done and it's inoffensive. Probably a cost cutting measure.

    As someone who owns a 2016 MX-5, that gauge is perfectly fine while driving / operating the car. The picture on this post doesn't do it any service, makes it look like a huge eyesore but in reality that is not the case.
  • Does it have a low fuel light? (Serious question)

    How's the transmission holding up? Apparently, from reading the forums, more than a few transmissions have failed already.
