I am getting ready to make a 36,000Mile/3 Year Review of the 124 Spider on You Tube(similar to the one I did for 25K/2 Year).

Everyone is invited to post a short (2-3 sentences tops) comment on what they think of their 124. Fun? Reliable? Issues? Practicality? etc.

Please note, I will use as many comments as possible in the video and attribute them to the name of the poster. If you wish to be anonymous or have me use a different name please include that info at the bottom of your comment.

Classica, Basic Sports car to enjoy, or modify to suit you, Lusso, The executive 124 and the Sporting Abarth Spider. All three models have proven reliability built into them through their shared Mazda MX5 platform DNA whilst outwardly displaying their Italian Heritage lightweight body design with the beating heart of a turbo assisted Fiat 1.4 Multiair engine unit .

Fun, fun, fun. But watch out for car’s strong affinity for fall foliage and twisty roads. Tough to avoid them if nearby.

One of the best-kept secrets on the market.

Something this affordable shouldn’t be so much fun.

Italian where it counts: styling, turbo kick, refined suspension tuning, amazing engine sound. Japanese where it counts: assembly quality and attention to detail. The best of both worlds.

Introverts beware. You will be approached while refueling and at red lights.

Probably one of the most honest things viewers will read on the internet today.

To drive this car is a purposeful act. It’s not a just get in, start, and drive like the average mid size ute. You can, of course, but that’s not this cars purpose and you will tire at the inconveniences.

You sit low. It’s loud at highway speeds. With the manual, you need to pay extra attention. (No checking texts at red light). You have to be a good driver. (I often quote top gear driving a semi.)

Bottom line, this car is for those that enjoy the act of driving, all the time, every time.

Somehow it makes my VW GTI seem like a Buick. A big, lazy sedan for times when I would have to put the 124's top up.

Dry days between 50 and 100 degrees are for enjoying the wind in my hair!

Agreed. My Spider makes everything else drive and feel like a beached whale.

I purchased my 2020 Silver Classica Auto in June, we love it and since you don't see many 124's we are often asked what kind of car it is. Most think it has more pizzazz and more expensive than a Miata!
