Whoo Hoo!! — One fast little so-and-so. Fastest car I've ever drove and it was a 4 Cylinder NA. Handled amazingly, point the nose where you want to go and it goes that direction. Very Very short shifts.

Pros: Fast and great gas mileage.

Cons: A little small, and it was a little difficult to find reverse when I first got in.

Fun, Light, Perfect Handling, But Underpowered, And Needs To Look Better — Front end needs re-designing. Needs more power than the standard 166hp 2 liter engine.

Pros: handling, clutch, shifter, handling, nice and low, handling

Cons: needs more power, and a bit more leg room for a driver over 6 foot

Number One Will Be Always Be The First — Excellent relationship power - weight, for 900 kg the four cyl. engine feel it like a V6 supercharged.

Pros: Relationship power - engine (best in class)

Cons: mmm...  maybe the premium price for being the first vehicle in the category

My Mazda Mx-5 Touring —

I really like this car and will love it, this week will be week two. I feel very comfortable with the car and it's handling characteristics but am not impressed by it's lack of power and it's heavy road feel. It does have a 50/50 weight distribution but the front end is lacking something. To the dealer's credit, they are willing to make it right. I will keep you posted and upload some pictures. I love the highland green color. Now that I have had this car for over 3 months, it has developed an issue with the check engine light, I had my buddy do a system scan and there were no codes being thrown, he reset it and it was OK for about 30 days, it popped up again and stayed lit for about 4 days and went out, came back on about a week later. I have checked everything and the diagnostic was run again. No issues or codes. This car was used and registered in Florida and sent up to Rhode Island to an auction. I think that these issues were there all along. I have finally gotten the codes for the check engine light and it's the thermostat, one would think that it's an easy fix but, in fact, it's hairy. The placement is located on the drivers side of the engine, towards the bottom. the price from parts stores varies from $29.00 to a high of $56.00 I have not checked with the dealer prices but I know the are high. I am not happy with Flood Mazda at all. What NAPA did for me for free (diagnostic) would cost $99.00 there. The car is a looker, but still has the squirrely feel. My son drove it for the first time and was literally all over the road. I'm used to it now but it is and remains an issue. Many things have been done to this car to get it right. The tires were replaced and high speed balanced. The balancing that was done by the dealer was not properly done with one full ounce difference being put to the right side and 2/3 of and oz. in the other wheel. The car was keyed badly several weeks ago, I opted to do a full body wrap to make it easier to fix if it should happen again. Security has been increased to catch the weasel who did this awful thing.

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

Pros: drivability

Cons: squirrilly steering has been cleared up. Balance was off by quite a bit. Their answer (Flood Mazda) New Tires. I got them, they paid. Still squirrely, had them re-balanced. Now it's perfect.

I loved my little Miata! It was so fun to drive! It had a manual transmission and convertible top, of course. If you want to have a passenger onboard, you might want to choose someone small in size, because it’s very small inside the cabin. Shop lightly too, because there is very little trunk space. It’s not even able to carry a small laundry basket (not deep enough). If you are just looking for a weekend ride, then this is the car for you!
