Overall:

Still My Favourit Of All The Cars I've Ever Owned — The MX-5 is simply the best value and performing 2 seat coupĂ©/convertible on the market. The rear drive chassis, the handling, comfort and build quality make it the best choice in this market. Only let down by ridiculously short intervals and expensive services, the car was a pleasure to own and drive no matter what the weather

Pros: Great handling, performance, fun-factor and build

Cons: Expensive to service and insure

Overall:

Like Driving A Go Kart — Just a great car overall. Engine performance is somewhat lacking and interior cabin is tight. The car gets great gas mileage and has low maintenance cost. It is an extremely fun car to drive and handles better than 99.9% other cars. If your looking for a roadster this is the best value for your money.

Pros: Turns on a dime and gives you back a quarter change.  Fun! Fun! Fun!

Cons: Tight interior space

Fun to drive and very reliable. Soft top was very hard to use, especially trying to close it as it was very hard to get it to latch. Very uncomfortable and extremely noisy on any thing over about 50 mph, but its a roadster, right?
