What are cars similar to the Mazda miata?

I'm looking for a first car and I'm gonna get something that is used. Around $10,000. I've checked out miatas, s2000's, and solstices. My dad doesn't want me to get anything german made as he owns a few mechanic shops and knows they're expensive to repair(I'm stool open to suggestions).... show more I'm looking for a first car and I'm gonna get something that is used.
