The Best Car Ever Made — For the price you will not fine a finer piece of automobile machinery made in the planet. This is a true sports coupe. WIth the cabriolet aspect adding more fun to a car that is already the most fun car to drive. Just read the reviews, consistently a top 10 car of the year on Motor Trend. Positively reviewed by every automobile authority. Top Gear's review questions why someone would ever opt for a BMW Z4 instead of the Mazda MX-5. I purchased the car used (single owner, florida lady owned) and consider the decision the best value for the dollar transaction I've ever made. I now look for excuses to make errands.

Zoom Zoom — I love everything about my MX-5. It's a great car and it's fun to drive. Both the Exterior and Interior are very stylish. It's definitely an eye catcher. The stereo sounds great even with the top down. I also like the fact that it has a trunk.

Fast, Fun, Sexy, Wide Open Perspective On Your Daily Drive. — Absolutely love this vehicle, it is by far one of the most fun cars I have driven. Takes summer tires so got to expect some replacements every season or so, but I wouldn't trade the fun of driving this car for the world, it is amazing!

fun to drive, well built, great gas mileage

Cons

a little noisy on road trips, tight seats

Nc Miata — 30,000 miles with nary a problem... 28-32mpg, even quick enough to get out of its own way. Great for autocross, or on dirt roads in the wilderness. Even fits all my camping gear. Modern build quality with the fun factor of the old Miatas. Love the red. Yo <3 mi Mazda!

Fast and great gas mileage.

A little small, and it was a little difficult to find reverse when I first got in.

Whoo Hoo!! — One fast little so-and-so. Fastest car I've ever drove and it was a 4 Cylinder NA. Handled amazingly, point the nose where you want to go and it goes that direction. Very Very short shifts.

Number One Will Be Always Be The First — Excellent relationship power - weight, for 900 kg the four cyl. engine feel it like a V6 supercharged.

Pros

A true sports car--drives and handles like one and at a fraction of the cost.  It's a Mazda.  I've owned 3 in my lifetime and they are the most reliable cars on the planet.  My first Miata, a 1991 (second year they were out on the market) was sold in 2002 with 103k  miles on it.  Aside from brakes and oil changes, I never had a single repair--not even a clutch.  Great gas mileage--it will go 200-280 miles on a fill up of about 10.5 gallons.  Sex appeal--more grunty than the earlier versions, you'll feel young and free behind the wheel.  The new 2.0 litre engine has plenty of vroom vroom for a 4-cylinder engine, too.

Cons

You can't go to Home Depot and buy much of anything with this car.  Or, take a drive for a 3-day weekend with more than 2 small pieces of luggage in the trunk, unless your passenger likes holding things in his or her lap.  But you don't buy this car for practicality, you buy it because it's fun, because  you like to drive, because you want a rag top car on those glorious sunny days.

A Sexy Convertible Sports Car For A Fraction Of What It Should Cost — I bought my first MIata in 1991, the second year they were on the market and still had those flip up headlights. I drove it for 11 years, and sold it in 2002--and only because I was moving to Sydney, Australia and couldn't take it with me. It had 103k miles on it, and still drove like a dream. I never had a single problem with it mechanically. Mazdas, from my experience, are well-built, a great value for money, and I believe a quite underrated brand of cars. When I returned to the US in 2011, I was older (47), but yearned for the days before my 9-year stint overseas. While it was completely impractical (you can't really haul much of anything in it and there is only room for 2), I found myself in Mazda Oakland looking at this car--with just 19k miles on it, and even though it was 4 years old, still had that new car smell to it. I decided to take it for a test drive, instead of the Mazda 3 that I came to drive, and once I was behind the wheel, I was hooked. I've had many joyful experiences in this car in the 3 years that she's been mine. One of my first dates with my husband was driving through the Marin Headlands in my Miata, on a gorgeous, sunny day--with the top down, and holding his hand for the first time. Or up to Napa Valley for a weekend of wine tasting. Or to Yosemite in a freak October snowstorm. This car made my middle-aged life feel a little more frivolous, a little more fun. It was the one thing I owned that made no sense for the life I had and I didn't care because every time I got behind the wheel, I was transported back to 1991--a 27 year old driving his first convertible, and feeling young and with a life that was full of possibilities. I am only parting with it now because marriage has brought another car into my life, and with my parent's car (oddly enough--a Mazda 3)--we have one too many cars and my Miata is, well, the most dispensable. You will love this car. You will have fun times, romantic times, great memories. Just none of them about going to Home Depot.

Pros

The car handles like a dream, has plenty of power, low curb weight, I get compliments daily on how nice it is.

The dealer charged me way too much, there are several little things that are a pain in the butt.

Great Car, Crappy Dealer — The car is so nice to drive that you don't really know how nice it is. I had to rent a car for about a week, it was a brand new Chevy Impala with less than 100 miles when I picked it up. Fresh and clean with all the bells and whistles, I kind of thought that the domestic market had improved. Upon my return, I got back in my car (the Miata) and felt the difference before I left the parking lot. It was amazing. Later when I tried to trade it in at the same dealer I bought it from for $16,400.00, they offered me under $10,000. I still owe $15,250.00 on it. They (Flood Mazda) wanted me to take a loss of $5,000.00, as if it were nothing, and the car was 100 % better than the car they delivered.

I Love This Car! — This car was perfect for me as it is sporty, really cute and so easy to drive and take care of. It does have a fairly new battery 2/13) and low profile tires were replaced in 3/12. I've taken it on a few road trips and it handles well for long distance driving. If you are looking for a car that shows off your love of sports cars at an affordable price, this is the model for you.
