2002 Mazda Miata — this was given to me by my mom. shes driving it at the moment cause shes looking for a new car for herself. i like it, its very small you can def. drive under an 18 wheeler with it. you do feel the road when you drive, very rough, so i wouldnt recommend it if you want a smooth ride, its a rotary engine vehicle.

Highest Smiles Per Gallon That You Will Find! — This car is great fun for anyone you enjoys driving. Designed with the British sports cars of the past in mind. Rear wheel drive, short shifting, handling is fantastic. This is the best British Roadster ever made. (without the British leaks and electrical problems)

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

Fun In The Sun — Love driving on hot summer days with the top down. Great for back country roads and AutoX. Very reliable good on gas can use as a every day driver. Rear wheel drive make for more fun. If you want a fun car the Miata is it!

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

Pros

Handling, convertible top, solid chassis, great reliability, nice fuel mileage.

Cons

Power is merely adequate, clutch is finicky for the novice driver, RWD and 50/50 balance requires some practice in aggressive maneuvers. Requires a proper alignment roughly once a year.

Great Light-weight Sports Car In The British Tradition With Japanese Build Quality. — Absolutely outstanding handling gives credence to the fact this is the most-raced car in North America. Amazing shifter, 50/50 weight balance, tractable engine, and surgical steering. It is, however, very small and anyone over 6'4" or with an inseam over 34" need not bother to attempt ingress. The car doesn't have a terribly large amount of power (142 hp for the 2001-2005 model discussed here). And while 5.0 cubic feet of trunk space is plenty ample enough for normal trips or a carefully packed weekend getaway for two, it won't replace your SUV or station wagon for taking bags of recycling to the center.

Great Car — Fun convertible car to drive with a 5 speed manual transmission. The exterior is dark blue and the interior is tan leather, it also has the factory AM/FM radio CD player with Bose speakers. Great gas mileage and with only 62,208 miles it is in excellent condition!

Fun To Drive — This car is fun to drive, it corners amazingingly well - accelerates great. plenty of power for my needs.. inexpensive to buy & own (in realation to most sports cars). Twelve more words and I can submit this. why?? because it is face book & one tends to waste there time here doing things like this.

It Is A Great Car, But Better As A Secondary Car Rather Than A Primary Car — a little TOO small but it handles amazing and has been extremely reliable for the past 2 years ive owned it. I would definitely reccomend it to anyone i get alot of compliments on it, i just wish it had a little more power

Primary Use: Commuting to work
