Pros

Fun to drive, like a go cart for the street

Cons

No storage room other than a backpack.

Nimble — Great cars for the weekend, handles like a go cart. Nice for day trips, would have only for a weekend car. Lack of versatility does not make for a good daily driver. For a manual top, is super easy to put up and down. As a second car, you can not go wrong.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

10th Anniversary Mx-5, Excellent Condition, Ultra Low Mileage — This is a great looking and driving little sports car. The seats are supportive and smooth leather. Shifter feel is excellent, wooden steering wheel is great. 200watt Bose stereo sounds great even with the top down! 4 sport tires with full thread and matching fiberglass hardtop is included. Mx-5s aren't about raw power, they're about balance and nimble road handling. They inspire driving confidence and reward proper sport driving techniques. Miata's are truly the best bang for your buck driver's cars. Only selling bc/ this house bought two brand new Miatas and parking space is getting thin.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

An Overall Fun Car — This car is perfect for long rides on beautiful days with the top down. It moves so quickly that it gets in and out of traffic and is a smooth ride that you can also count on as a daily driver.

Buy It If You Like Sport — really fun to drive, its very sporty, and the mazda quality is acceptable but not fantastic. the proformance is really fun especially with a manual transmission. its a handful to drive in the snow with the rwd and stick, but if your good enuf you can have a lot of fun with that little car

Only 5 cubic ft of cargo, which is plenty for most.

Fun Without Getting Into Too Much Trouble. — What a great car. Superbly balanced, perfect manual gearbox and totally connected to the road. Even after adding more than 300 additional horsepower to the factory 116hp at the wheels, the car was still extremely well balanced. I can't wait to buy another one and do another turbo setup.

Small, sporty, quick. Oh, and the top comes down

Cons

Not as much oomph as I'd like.

Great, Fun Car. Very Mod-able — Great car, solid, pristine condition. Build quality and interior are great, but it's an SE trim, so it had better be great! Good mileage. Turns heads. Hard top is good for bad weather. Softtop is mainly down when the hardtop is off.

Cheap, fun, soft top, and parts are well priced and easy to get hold of.

Cons

Its down to your personal taste but i personally can't fault this car, the 1.8 would have been nice but not really needed.

Mk2 1.6 Mx-5 — excellent buy, The pocky 1.6 engine doesn't disappoint with its performance and economical on fuel, after doing heavy reseach since buying my motor for you tuning nutz the 1.8 vision on the mk2 is easier to get performance parts, but its two insurance brackets higher and the the difference of 30bhp i couldn't warrent spending the extra cash, they handel as well as the reviews a pleasure to throw it into a bend, being a base model no abs but i love the raw feel of the car! a must buy for a driving nut! plus driving down the country roads with the lid down brings a whole different concept to world, i love it!

The Equal Opportunities Roadster! — I love my car. Being a total girl, I've called it James. It's a turn of the century mx5 icon, vin rouge paintwork, cream leather seats and wooden Torino steering gubbins... Very elegant! After years of driving hot hatches, which were good, driving James seems to crank it up a notch. Although just a 1.8 (at the time the highest engine spec) it really does go and the handling is excellent. Recently had to have a hire car and the fuel efficiency was close to that of a basic and much less fun, VW Polo 1.2E... Stunning motor, and I'm so glad he's mine!!!

2000 Mazda Miata: Evolution Orange Mica — The car is cheap, fun, and sweet. To add to it, we have an evolution orange mica one. There were less than 400 made of this color in the world. We have only needed to replace the air conditioning once. That was only because my mom decides to BLAST the AC with the top down... Haha. I love it. It's the most fun car to drive, my parents say, and I can't wait until I get to drive it. It's also got great gas milage! It gets between 30 and 40 MPG on the highway. My Miata is amazing and I wouldn't trade it for anything... :)
