Loved It — Loved the car while I had it, didnt own it too long due to an unforseen accident. Got it cheeply though, had put on a new top and underbody. Very fun car to drive, drove it about 100 miles a day.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Great handling, performance, fun-factor and build

Cons

Expensive to service and insure

Still My Favourit Of All The Cars I've Ever Owned — The MX-5 is simply the best value and performing 2 seat coupĂ©/convertible on the market. The rear drive chassis, the handling, comfort and build quality make it the best choice in this market. Only let down by ridiculously short intervals and expensive services, the car was a pleasure to own and drive no matter what the weather

Turns on a dime and gives you back a quarter change.  Fun! Fun! Fun!

Cons

Tight interior space

Like Driving A Go Kart — Just a great car overall. Engine performance is somewhat lacking and interior cabin is tight. The car gets great gas mileage and has low maintenance cost. It is an extremely fun car to drive and handles better than 99.9% other cars. If your looking for a roadster this is the best value for your money.
