2012 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring Convertible w/ Retractable Hardtop Review

Fun, economical hard top convertible with excellent 6 speed transmission


Only 2 people & no one over 6' with top up.  No spare tire & small trunk.


Fun Ride With A Hard Top Convertible & Not Expensive To Maintain — Fun ride with a hard top convertible and not expensive to maintain. The ride is very good & the 6 speed shifting has a very good sync. system, even for my wife, who loves driving it. The heated seats are great in the winter. There is no spare tire and the trunk is small. We like the fact that many systems are not electronic thereby reducing potential electrical repair problems that we have experienced with other automobile/trucks we have owned. My wife and I love driving our MX5 Grand Touring Miata.

This car is very agile! It is a true sports car on the back roads


The Power. It needs more of it


Overall A Wonderful Car To Drive! — I would recommend this car in a heart beat. It is very fun to drive, it turns heads constantly, and i get many compliments on the Two tone with matching rims that came with the special edition model. The only thing that i would frown upon is the power. I wouldn't mind having an extra 20HP. That can easily come with a few mods, but modding isn't for me!

Get One. By Dave

The Ultimate Affordable Convertible By Raoul

I bought the '91 Miata as replacement for my Fiat Spider. The Miata was certainly a step up in reliability, performance, and handling. Sportier than the Fiat and more fun to drive, although not as con... Read More

Most Fun For The Dollar, Ever By brigantine

A lot of people have told me these early Miatas were underpowered. A lot of people don't know how to drive a high spirited 4 cyl engine. The engine had a red line of nearly 6,000 rpm and didn't even... Read More

The Most Fun For The Buck You Could Ever Want. By Sly_Fox
