A Fun Toy You Can Actually Drive Every Day. — I live and work in the city and have enjoyed having this as my only car. Manual transmission is a must. I suppose my next car will probably be a little more practical, but I've managed to fit (on separate occasions) $300 worth of Costco goodies, a set of (4) wheels & tires, and myself and a passenger with enough luggage for a 4-day trip. Hard to imagine a better fun-to-drive value-for-money proposition. Get a Borla dual exhaust. You'll thank me later.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great connection between car & driver. Real throttle, great manual shifter and transmission. 5 nicely spaced gears. Light weight, easily tossable, quick steering, very maneuverable. Fun city car.

Cons: Not enough headroom with the top up. Chassis needs more bracing (solvable in the aftermarket). A/C zaps limited power on hot days. No cruising gear for the highway.

Pros: it is reliable, good on gas fun to drive , low miles

Cons: The cons are to small

Excellent Inexpensive Little Roadster! — The car lacks room for just about anything but it doesn't matter. My wife and I only drive it on sunny days here in Oregon which are few and far between but getting out on the mountain roads is what this car is all about. The wind,sun and fun is what we are after. There are plenty of better sports cars out there I'm sure but I'm happy with this one. I love this car, can ya tell?

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

Pros: lowered and corners beautifully. Plenty of power but could use a turbo. It'll be getting one shortly.

Cons: With few flaws, I don't care about them because I enjoy driving it so much and get plenty of compliments exactly the way it is.

First Miata *great Car* —

This is a really fun car to drive. Very quick in the corners and handles like its on rails (even on all season tires in 10 degree weather). Its also very easy to control when you get a little sideways. It gets off the line quick, tho the 0-60 is not that amazing (7.9secs), and stops on a dime. The seats are comfortable and hold you in place nicely while doing some spirited driving. The inside is easy to navigate and all controls are within arms reach. The space can be a bit cramped for a tall person. I'm 6'2" and just fit in with the roof up. My head does tend to bump the top occasionally but its worth that for the experience you get driving a car like this. I just put the top down (yes even in the winter. its down right now in fact and its 25 degrees outside) The gas mileage is low for a small 1.8L engine, i get 27 combined city and highway (with the occasional spin up the revs for a few mins). But this car is a sports car, tuned to perform, not to sip gas like a prius. Overall i would recommend this to anyone who wants to move fast on the backroads and/or cruise on the highway. This car can be beaten like a honda and it won't break. I got mine with 63k miles on it and i'm expecting it to last to 200k+. I've seen plenty for sale over 200k miles, and still for a pretty good price.

Pros: Small, quick, convertible, loves to rev, looks good, girls love it =]

Cons: Low gas mileage for a 1.8L (but its tuned for sport not econobox gas sipping.)
