2022 MX-5 Miata RF Reliability

The Mazda Miata hasn't been a part of the J.D. Power Ownership Survey since 2019, and in that year is scored a rather disappointing 73 out of a possible 100 points. But the lack of recalls relative to other brands is pleasing, and while early model years had a few, 2020 and 2021 models are recall-free. Each MX-5 Miata RF is sold with a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
