Description

Rediscover the joys of driving a simple car! There are many reasons why the Miata holds the Guiness world record as the best-selling roadster of all time, but the simple truth is - it's mad fun. It's a cult classic, a consummate antidote to road rage, a magic mood-lifter, a telepathic dance partner. It's the answer to... well, everything. Whether you are a pathological car nut or just someone looking to enjoy a Sunday drive, this is your car. Since its debut in 1990 the Miata has evolved to keep up with the times. This one is a darn clean example of the very first year of the very first generation, the car that started it all: a burbly 1.6L four-cylinder, 50/50 weight distribution and a paltry 2,000 pounds to fling about on four skinny tires. And, of course, it's a manual and it's rear-wheel-drive. The car is tiny. Driving through a sea of beige and gray, everything else on the road will seem like a bloated monstrosity. This can be weirdly amusing and you may catch yourself grinning silly. Don't be alarmed - this is normal. Especially if the top is down and the sun is out. (I love driving new cars. If anyone is interested in swapping cars for a day or two let me know!) Delivery: - I'd be happy to deliver the car anywhere in the DC/MD/NoVA. Normal delivery fees apply.

Guidelines

I do my best to keep this car as clean and original as possible. Thus, I kindly ask that in the car there be: no smoking no eating no coffee or sticky beverages no drivers who do not know how to drive a manual transmission

Faqs

  • Can I drive it in the rain?
    Absolutely - just don't put the top down. The car was designed to be used in all weather, i.e. it does not leak.
  • Your car is lovely, but it's 28 years old. Is it reliable?
    Like the rising sun. It's Japanese, has ridiculously low mileage and it's been well-maintained. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere.
  • How do I open the stupid gas tank?
    I feel your frustration. The gas tank release is in the cubby between the seats.

Such a fun little car! Even at 30 years old, the Miata is still smooth, clean, and well-kept (no noticeable signs of age on suspension, clutch, gearbox, etc.). Leonid was highly responsive and honest. Was an overall great experience!

The car is a lot of fun and Leonid is a great guy. Definitely recommended.

Wonderful experience with the Miata! Leonid made pick-up/drop-off a breeze and spending the weekend with the top down was an exhilarating vacation from boring cars and the workweek.

I'm going to do my best to keep this short & not so gushy. With that said I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE-LOVE-LOVE this car! What a perfect car to site see & for evening drives through the city. Truly a drivers car that carries an experience that cars from today just don't offer. Overlook how "simple" & "old" this car looks, its in amazing shape, will leave a smile on your face & will encourage you to just drive! Can't wait to drive this car again, this will be my preferred car to use while in the area.

My experience working with Leonid was exceptional. I couldn’t be more pleased. We had the time of our lives exploring the beautiful country roads of eastern Maryland in his classic and beautifully maintained Miata. This was my first expense working with Turo. Leonid was a great ambassador for the brand. His communication was always timely and gave me tremendous confidence in the idea of renting someone’s personal vehicle. Leonid personally delivered the vehicle to us at the curb at BWI airport and went over all instructions we needed to safely operate his car. Returning the vehicle was equally as simple. His descriptions of the vehicle were accurate, especially when he says you’ll smile the entire time you’re in it. We sure did. This car is pure fun! Thank you again Leonid, it was a true pleasure working with you.
