I’m getting the urge to save up for a second car as my “weekend car.” I’d want something cheap but reliable and fun to drive. My top two choices are a pre 2004 Honda S2000 or a second generation (1998-2004) Mazda Miata.

The pre 2004 S2000’s don’t have a rev limiter and offer a more intense driving experience. The Miatas are extremely popular cars and show up at my driving club and local car shows.

@CEB1993, yeah those Miata's are definitely popular. I should know -- a coworker of mine owns one.
He also modified the flip up halogen lights and made them LED Halo's. I'll see if I can snap a video or pic
of his car before or maybe after work today, unless he brings in his Mustang.

*Edit*... he brought his Mustang. I'll see if he brings the Miata on Monday when I'm back at work.

My Subaru Legacy has a 6 speed CVT transmission with manual paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The CVT is pleasant and the constantly changing gear ratios keep the RPM’s at a fairly relaxed level while cruising at a constant speed. I wish there was a true manual overdrive mode to get the Subaru WRX/STI experience. There’s some road noise from the 18 inch premium wheels, but I just turn up the radio a little louder  :D

Bullet proof reliability so far after two years including a drive all the way to Canada and back. At 87,000 miles we’re still going strong. That 3.6 liter “boxer” engine is a fine machine. I replace the oil (5W-30 synthetic) every 5000 miles. I restored and resealed the headlight lenses and replaced all the stock incandescent lamps.
I just got a new 2020 Subaru Legacy last year and I LOVE it! It has the smoothest ride of any car I've ever driven and very fuel efficient. I have also considered trading my Civic for a WRX but who knows. Nice to see another Legacy owner on here!

Hey that's awesome! Reviews say these newest Legacys have ride quality and seat comfort of luxury sedans twice their price. The Legacy really is an awesome road trip car  8) I've driven mine all the way to Montreal, Canada and back. With the 6 cylinder version, I can get about 590 miles out of a full tank of gas. I've heard the redesigned Subarus 2019 and newer replace the 6 cylinder with a turbocharged 4 cylinder.
