Pros

She drives like a baby Ferrari 355

Cons

You don't like getting your hair messed up...

You Can't Have Her, She's Mine :p — I love my car. She's put a smile on my face every day for the past 5yrs. She's not the fastest but rear wheel drive + skinny tyres = FUN FUN FUN. Amazing build quality, only the clutch has failed in 5 years of hard driving. She's a V-Spec, the highest specced MX-5 they ever made, full leather, I put a Nakamichi Stereo in with speakers in the head rests and a beautiful Nardi steering wheel, the same you'll find in an E-Type. I'll keep her as long as i can...

wundercar, it's not an SUV

Cons

none! I want another one!

35

Splendid, A Dream Car — for being a 16 year old car, it sure doesn't act like it! super fun to drive, and taking the top down is a dream! I love that I got it painted yellow. it gets great gas milage and the trunk is suprisingly spaceous!

Pros

Handling, overall quality, classic appearance, reasonable to maintain, incredible fun

Cons

Everything wears out with time, but the first to go was the paint on the fenders and the upholstery, both repairable

The Most Fun I've Ever Had With A Car — I couldn't be more pleased with my Miata. I enjoy the driving experience even more than my 2006 Honda, and I don't just mean when the top is down on a sunny day! How can you complain about a 17 year old car that still purrs and never gives me a lick of trouble. Have the chance to buy one? Do it.
