2001 Mazda MX-5 "Mine !"
Hello from Lafayette Louisiana
Just recently bought a 2001 Miata LS with the factory sport suspension package and slip differential. But one thing I have trouble determining is that everything says it's a LS by the interior, tan interior, leather tan seats, Bose system (at lest it use too, JVC deck install but the factory cassette is still in the dash not hooked up) Contacted Mazda customer service and the reply was that it was too old to get the build sheet but did give me the build date and that it came with the sport suspension package and slip differential. Also gave me the pdf file of I guess is the spec sheet for the 2001 Miata's and all the options and what standard on each model.

The problem is if my Miata is a LS with the sport package with the slip differential according to Mazda's spec sheet the only way to have the these options on the LS it says only with the 6 speed tranny and mine is a 5 speed, so what gives ? Is the spec sheet wrong or do I have a base model ? Or could some previous owner dropped the 6 speed and went back in with a 5 speed ?

Hell I didn't figure it would be so hard to figure out what I have sitting in my driveway................... confused smiley

Thanks for any information that ya'll can pass my way

Glenn

PS: That is not the original top, just put that one on 2 weeks ago the original was glass with defrost

Just took this pic of the ID tag on the passenger side door post. Maybe someone more knowledgeable with what the codes mean.

Thank you
Glenn

Hello from Central Oregon. 1992 NA purchased from original owner 10 years ago. Pretty much stock at this point, although the brakes have been converted to '94-'97 spec and interior is being changed out from the tan to a full black interior. In the process of building a 1.8 with the 2.0 stroker crank and possible small turbo kit to replaced the original (and getting tired) 1.6.

Hello, My name is Larry, this is my second 2002 Madza Miata SE in Blazing Yellow Mica, I had to sell my first ones one and was fortunate to find this one in 2013, Always garage kept, Bubble Stored in Winter. I love it.The car has 55000 miles. I will add the Vin registration to it Later when I get to the Title. LOL

I live in Indiana and have about 4 months of driving before it has to go back to sleep for the winter.

I am having some battery problems due to not driving enough. I believe the alarm system is the drag. When the battery gets low, the alarm goes off occasionally. Also the lcd screen on my Bose Sound system is missing some segments. Would like to replace it with a new System one day.

I also ride bicycles for pleasure. I am 65 years young with a younger wife. She also loves my Miata.

Hi,
Not such a new member, but I've been a lurker for a while. I bought my 2010 Mazda in September 2012. It had been a dealer demo for the first year of its life and used by someone for the second year. So, when I purchased it from the local Toyota dealer near Albany, NY, it still had quite of time left on its warranty. The only thing that gave me second thoughts about the car was that it has an automatic transmission. Well, I guess I'm not perfect either and it was such a good deal that I couldn't turn it down - I think the Toyota dealer just didn't want to have a non-Toyota car on the lot. It had 12,000 miles at the time of my purchase and now it has about 34,800 miles. Here in upstate New York, a Miata is definitely an April to October only car. No problems with the car (fingers crossed) but the tires are going to need replacing before the 2018 season. Any advice on that would be appreciated. Don't want the cheapest tires, I want to be safe, but don't want the most expensive either. Anyway, that's my story - Happy Driving to all!

Wes
