Topic: Q: Looking for tips on buying a used Miata RF (NC)

I'm helping a friend who is considering to buy a Miata as his daily driver. The particular model he's looking for us a 2011 Miata RF that seems pretty well optioned up for $13K-ish (asking). California car. I've helped plenty of friends shop for used cars so I know what to look for in general (signs of repaint, damage, etc) but I'm less familiar with Miata specific issues/quirks.

I know plenty of you folks have owned/taken apart Miatas before so I wanted to see if you folks could share some buying tips on what to look out for.

Thanks in advance.

PS. I've read the following NC buyers guides already. Anything else you folks might want to add? … uide/31354 … 257/page1/
