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

Great Little Roadster —

Performance: Acceleration, especially with the manual is speedy but not rocket-sled like. Braking is excellent with stock brakes. I have Riken Raptor HR tires on right now which are functioning great in all types of weather except snow/ice. Handling is like your on rails. Every little nudge of the steering wheel is translated to a change of direction. One of the best handling cars I've ever driven. To sum it up, it swallows corners. Supercharger planned in distant future (i.e. when I have money) Build Quality: Excellent craftsmanship and everything is laid out very simply. Would be a very easy to work on car. Modifications require little effort. Few squeaks and rattles on interior, but that is acceptable with the stiff suspension. No repairs as of today. Appearance: Fantastic looking car, but could do with some more muscle. Some say it looks like its smiling, which just reflects how one feels when tossing this thing through corners. The "Classic Red" combo with the tan top is very british sports car like and is a good look for the car. Cost of Ownership: The Miata commands a premium over similar models made by other manufacturers because of it's excellent build quality, good gas mileage, and high demand. I got a good price on the car, and so far, all regular scheduled maintenance has been relatively inexpensive. Fun factor: VERY FUN! I'd probably give it a 9/10, just because it could use a little more power.

Pros: Peppy engine, Looks great, Manual Tranny, Bose Sound, Handles like it's on rails, Comfortable interior, There is actually a trunk, Lots of potential for upgrades

Cons: Could use more oomph, I would have liked the stock ground effects option but it is no longer offered, Trunk space

Awesome Car! — I love everything about this car.. absolute blast to drive. Very well put together, extremely good handling, price is great, nice interior too. Only downsides are size, I went to this car from an Audi A4 and the interior space difference is pretty extreme. I guess it could be faster too, get the Mazdaspeed version if you are into stop-light grand prix's

Pros: Fun factor, thread a needle at 80mph handling, great mileage and reliability

Cons: Old women love this car for some reason

Fun To Drive — This car is fun to drive, it corners amazingingly well - accelerates great. plenty of power for my needs.. inexpensive to buy & own (in realation to most sports cars). Twelve more words and I can submit this. why?? because it is face book & one tends to waste there time here doing things like this.

Pros: great on corners

Cons: bit low to the ground - I would not dirve this in the winter.

2002 Mazda Miata — this was given to me by my mom. shes driving it at the moment cause shes looking for a new car for herself. i like it, its very small you can def. drive under an 18 wheeler with it. you do feel the road when you drive, very rough, so i wouldnt recommend it if you want a smooth ride, its a rotary engine vehicle.

Pros: Its Cute

Cons: Rough Drive

My Car — its more than i can explain, the ride is stiff but fun. Engine has good potential, driving with top down is underappretiated unless personally experienced, maybe an expensive payment monthly but well worth it, car is a street legal go-kart, so many aftermarket parts available i had to buy it

Pros: 4-cyl torque, mpg, short throw shifter, driving with top down, handling, very fun to drive

Cons: stiff ride, not enough power stock, no tilt, winter mobility

Mazda Mx-5 Nb-f Mark2 — My all time favorite car, if you consider looks, fun driving it, build quality and price or cost. For now, I want no other any more. Mazda, when you think of making something better ... same size as first miata, similar ooks as second miata NB-fl and smaller 1.5 but powerful +110 hp engine. This must work.

Pros: looks, buid quality, fun in driving, price

Cons: might have a bit more power, compared with engine mounted.
