    2000 Mazda Miata: Evolution Orange Mica — The car is cheap, fun, and sweet. To add to it, we have an evolution orange mica one. There were less than 400 made of this color in the world. We have only needed to replace the air conditioning once. That was only because my mom decides to BLAST the AC with the top down... Haha. I love it. It's the most fun car to drive, my parents say, and I can't wait until I get to drive it. It's also got great gas milage! It gets between 30 and 40 MPG on the highway. My Miata is amazing and I wouldn't trade it for anything... :)

    Pros: Appearance, Handling, Fun to Drive

    Cons: Manual Top

    Street Legal Go Carts — these cars are very fun to drive for the money. great power to weight ratio for the stock engine. turbos make them extremely fast. they also make a V-8 kit which is 4k but its worth it. they dont have very much room though and dont get the gas mileage you would expect.

    Pros: fun to drive

    Cons: gas mileage isnt great for such a small car

    This Car Makes The Driver Feel The Jinba Ittai That Mazda Wanted! — Fantastic, affordable little car - comes in 3 models: Mk1 or NA (frog eye headlamps 1989 - 1998), Mk2 / 2.5 or NB (1998 - 2005) and Mk3 or NC (Mk3 comes also as Roadster Coupe - from 2005 - present). I own a NB, (1.6 B6 engine), and its main plus point over the other later models is that it is lower to the ground and, over all, more sporty. The later models have all the gadgets and toys, but this in turn has not done the car any favours, as it is heavier than the older models. The NA was the lightest of the models, weighing in at approx 940kg. The NB stands at 1000kg, and the NC has an additional 95kg on top of that - mainly due to the more powerful engine. The MX-5, being a rear wheel drive, is a bit of a nightmare on wet roads - handling is not so easy, and often the car is inclined to drift into corners. However, newer models have Traction Control which does help. Also snowy or icy conditions are not good for the '5!!! On the whole it is an extremely fun car to drive. I love mine, and have never regretted buying it!

    Pros: Affordable, fun, economical to run

    Cons: Not so good for winter driving due to the rear wheel drive and weight of the car.

    Mazda Mx-5 — I owned this car when I lived in England, and had to sell it when we moved to the United States. While I owned it, I was in car heaven! This was such a cool car to drive - and I mean that literally. (If you've ever driven an open-topped car in England you'll know that it is a COOL experience - more like bloody freezing!) I loved this car, and was heartbroken when I sold it before we moved. Unfortunately, while I owned my Mazda, I was involved in an accident when an uninsured driver ran into the back of it at traffic lights, then pushed me into the back of another car. This made me a little nervous about buying such a "diddy" little car in the US, because it did not stand up well to the impact. Still a gorgeous little car!

    Pros: Very sporty, handles beautifully, good posing potential

    Cons: Not very sturdy in a crash. If you're paranoid about safety, go buy a Volvo instead - this is not the car for you!

    The Little Car That Could — Had the 2.0liter over summer of 2004. Basically pushed me into the roadster/sportscar camp well and trully. Responsive, quick, nippy. If you wanted to compare it to anything you'd probabley say it were reef shark or blue shark-it'd take a chunk or two out of you but you'd be alright-its not the great white that would eat you whole. If I wanted something in this class and couldn't afford anything else-I'd have it.

    Pros: Handeling

    Cons: Never going to be as good as the others in its class

    Great Car !!! An Absolute Blast To Drive!! — The 2000 Mazda Miata is a perfect little roadster. The car is fun to drive, especially on curved and winding roads. COnsidering that it is not a powerhouse, the car is surprisingly fast and looks and handles like cars priced at much higher pricepoints.

    Owner for 0 years, 1 months

    Miles Driven per Year:7,500

    Pros: Beautiful to look at.  GREAT convertible and EZ to open and close.

    Fun Ride, Great To Drive! — This is a perfect car for town or highway driving. Not ideal as a family car, but for a road-trip for two, or even a commuter car, it works well. No better way to arrive at work than in a convertible! It handles very well - hugs the road, and this Special Edition has amazing wood trip and an incredible Bose sound system.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great car for personal enjoyment - NOT a family car! Excellent handling, low to the ground. Fuel economy is excellent for a sports car, 25-33mpg. The glass window in the soft top is Great acceleration, six-speed transmission is fun, and it's great for top-down summer fun!

    Cons: Low cargo space, no back seats, pretty cramped for a tall guy like me!
