    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Light weight fun hugs corners. Looks great.

    Cons: A lil small but my dad is 6 foot 6inches and he enjoys driving it.

    Street Legal Go-kart — Looks great, nimble as a cat, stops on a dime, quick thru the gates, easy on the pocketbook. What more could you want? BANG FOR THE BUCK, a street-legal go-kart! It's my first NEW MX-5, 3rd one I've owned.

    Pros: Sharp, nimble, quick, holds its value

    Cons: Small trunk

    Best 28k You Can Spend Legally — Handling is pretty good as well as the acceleration. The power retractable hardtop works really well and you feel more secure than in the ragtop although headroom is less.

    Pros: Can be a everyday car.  

    Cons: Small.  But what can you expect from a 2 seated roadster.  Manual shifter is not as smooth as i would like.  really notchy.

    The Adult Version Of A Go-cart! — After reading Consumer Reports, I made the choice of going with their recommended choice for roadster in this price range. Mazda built this car with driver comfort and performance in mind. From the short throw shifter, to controls on the steering wheel and heated leather seats for the cool summer nights with the top down, one can't help but smile while driving this incredible machine. I owned a 99 Miata LS, and the improvements since then are amazing. I personally enjoy the added leg room, no more cramped legs on a long drive. UPDATE.....Still love Miatas....just not enough room for me and my Saint Bernard to enjoy it...sold it :-( . The new owner keeps in touch and is having a blast!

    Pros: Performance, handeling, comfort & styling

    Cons: trunk space
