    Highest Smiles Per Gallon That You Will Find! — This car is great fun for anyone you enjoys driving. Designed with the British sports cars of the past in mind. Rear wheel drive, short shifting, handling is fantastic. This is the best British Roadster ever made. (without the British leaks and electrical problems)

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

    Pros: Great looking. Always positive comments from people. Handles like a nut!
    Bose radio kicks butt!

    Cons: not great in the snow.

    Great Car — Fun convertible car to drive with a 5 speed manual transmission. The exterior is dark blue and the interior is tan leather, it also has the factory AM/FM radio CD player with Bose speakers. Great gas mileage and with only 62,208 miles it is in excellent condition!

    Pros: Enjoyable to drive, fast and sporty

    Cons: Nothing

    It Is A Great Car, But Better As A Secondary Car Rather Than A Primary Car — a little TOO small but it handles amazing and has been extremely reliable for the past 2 years ive owned it. I would definitely reccomend it to anyone i get alot of compliments on it, i just wish it had a little more power

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its amazing

    Cons: Not that fuel efficient and does not have very much space for hauling people or stuff

    Buy It — Excellent performance from a fairly inexpensive car. Fun to drive, a real pleasure to drive that puts a smile on your face. Made by a proven company with good prices for parts and it is a car that will keep running.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: More fun driving than one will have in a long time

    Cons: not a good people carrier

    2002 Mazda Mx-5 — I like this car a lot because of its lightweight-ness and the simple cockpit. The convertible soft top is a blast too! some wind in your ear and you will never forget about driving this car. It is so joyful and you always feel safe! it feels like nothing can go wrong with it. and because it is so small you can park it very easily. The engine does seem a little underpower though and the noise when the roof is up is also quite irritating if your doing a long distance drive. This is not a fast car but it handles so well, you will feel as if you are driving a go-kart and when you have the roof down it is a joyyyyy to drive!

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

    Pros: handles very well, simple softop convertible makes it easy to operate, very light weight!, small engine makes fuel consumption very good comparing to other sport cars, FUN FACTOR!

    Cons: The drivertrain, can feel it sitting and operating next to your left thigh which can produce unwated heat. The noise, the ride is not refine at all. practicality problem , a bit more leg room would be much appreciated

    Wouldn't Own Anything Else! — Its an amazing little car, gets great gas mileage and fun to drive. The only drawback is if you are in a wreck, it could be pretty dangerous. Overall though, I totally recommend it to anyone that is looking for a good car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its fun!

    Cons: Too small if in a wreck
