What's the Best Car You Ever Had? in The Off-Topic Lounge Posted April 21, 2022 I've asked folks about their worst car so what about the best car you ever had? Way back when, I had a 72 Valiant with a slant 6. Great reliable car with decent gas mileage, for that era. My 2000 Mazda Miata Special Edition was the most fun, outside of my race cars. It was super reliable and got a steady 30 mpg. Wish I still had it but my back wouldn't allow my to climb down in it any longer. Had to sell it. Broke my heart. I'm been driving a 2020 Kia Niro Touring S hybrid since November 2020 and it's pretty nice. Averaging about 48 mpg. Not as sophisticated as the Honda Insight Touring hybrid I traded in for the Kia. That car was really nice. Got about 52 mpg with it. But like the Miata, it was like climbing down into it and had hard seats. Again, it's my back that forced that trade. The Kia has a 10 way adjustable drivers seat. Super comfortable and a little sporty with 18" wheels and wider tires. The Miata has to be the best (most fun) street ride though.
