    I Like This Car B/c So Many People Ask Me If It Is A Porsche... Of Course I Say Yes. — Fun as hell to drive, especially in the summer... The car is small, which is very nice for getting through tight places or maneuvering quickly when in traffic. There is one small ass trunk so I don't pack much. Winter driving sucks ass and I pray for my life during these months.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun, gas mileage, look, sporty drive feeling

    Cons: Small trunk, death trap, winter driving

    A Fun Car To Drive! — This car is built to handle the twisties. It's not a drag racer. Its not built for fast accelleration, but handles well and is a blast to drive. I wish it had more upscale features, like heated seats, but I truly LOVE this car!

    Pros: It handles nice

    Cons: Its not a luxury cruiser or for tall people.

    I Love My Miata! — This is a fun little roadster-convertible! Beautifully designed and very high quality! We have it for 3 years, used model from 2003, but never had any problems with it. I'm sure it will last for many years to come. To summarize: excellent performance, high quality build, awesome appearance, low cost of ownership and fun factor through the roof (pun intended)! :)

    Pros: everything

    Cons: can't think of any

    Zoom Zoom Mx5 — A true sportster with great speed and awesome traction!!! Fully loaded and all the toys this was a steal.. The resale and craftmanship made my decision! If you need a great sports car that will make you happy with the MPG, Resale, Nastalgia, and just plane fun to drive this is the car!!!!

    Pros: Too many

    Cons: I cant afford two of them!!

    Overall Great — everything is amazing.... interior needs a lil work... the mpg is great. the exterior is beautiful... mouse grey with a navy blue top. performance is amazing ( 5 speed manual transmition) its fun sporty... and a big head turner... this car can definitely get tuned up. i have a ractive performance muffler. i wanna put in a super charger and a cold air intake. idk for sure but i might wanna out in a catalitic converter..... also, a rear lip spoiler.. overall fantastically amazing.

    Pros: everything is positive

    Cons: interior is a little plain. but great non the less.

    Fantastic Car, Easy To Handle, Great Fun To Drive! — The mx-5 is meant to be the biggest selling roadster in the UK and i can see exactly why. In the time I've had my mk 2.5 1.8i, I've lowered it, uprated the air filter, added a mesh grill, and fitted clear indicators. It is very much work in progress as i also intend to add style bars, uprate the brakes, upgrade the tyres, change the fuel cap to a chrome style. Eventually i will consider supercharging. I doubt i will turbo it instead although i will consider this nearer the time. This car is quick, responsive and really fun to drive. The other thing I've noticed is how people treat you as a person driving a car and not just another car on the road. When i say that i mean that, because people can see your face they tend to be more courteous, they let you out at junctions and thank you more for giving way to them etc. I've been bitten by the MX-5 bug and love this car to pieces. I've also had lots of positive remarks from strangers which is always nice.

    Pros: great handling, great looks, loads of mods available,

    Cons: visibility with roof up, having headlights shining right in to your car at night as it's a lot lower than most cars, comes in some very unusual colours!

    The More I Drive It The More I Love It. — I have only had this, my first roadster, for a few days, but it is every thing I read about. The 6-speed took a day or 2 to feel comfortable with but now is just fine. Shifts smoothly from bottom to top. Cornering is like riding on rails.

    Best Car I've Ever Had! — Current mods include a lowering kit and ground effects, done before I bought it. Engine is currently the stock 1.8L DOHC, eventually I plan on turbocharging it.

    Pros: Handling is awesome
    Peppy acceleration
    Looks good

    Cons: Wore out the tires doing donuts

    My Little Miata.. — Well, its beyond small. I am pleasantly surprised at how much fits in the trunk, and if the top is up, there is quite a bit more storage room behind the seats. You'll never be asked to drive in the carpool!!!

    Pros: It's peppy and convertible, what else is there?

    Cons: Only 2 seats!!!

    The Best Bang For The Buck All Around Sports Car. — Decently quick, handles like a dream, sounds great and looks terrific. This car has been out since 1990 with very few changes. Its that good!

    Pros: Small, superb handling, easy to work on, lots of mods available

    Cons: Small, lots of mods available
