Porsche Handling, Mazda Price. —

It's a roadster; a 2 seat, RWD, convertible. I don't have kids so there's no need for a backseat. Cargo room. I can pack an entire shopping cart of groceries into the trunk and then there's half a cart worth of room behind the roll bars when the top it up. There's also cubbies everywhere in the car for extra storage. It's shocking when you realize how much stuff it can hold! Build quality, ride quality and MPG are better than the '06 I had. They say the AT and MT have similar MPG, HOWEVER, the MT has 167HP vs the AT with 158HP so that's a win for the MT. I've had the car in for oil changes....... that's about it. Well, the battery had to be reset for sitting in the showroom for so long so aside from that it's been super reliable. shifting is like butter and I smile every time I have the top down and I see curvy roads coming up. It's worth the money. The sound system is better than in my '06 AND you get speakers in-between the seats in every trim on the newer models instead of just the GT on the older models like my '06. Just drive one with the top down on a beautiful day and you'll see why Mazda has sold over 900,000 of these cars since it was released in '89 and the number is shooting up higher each year.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I used to make fun of this car before I drove one and I sincerely apologize to Mazda and every owner ever for that. It's fun, quick, reliable and the cost of ownership is on the low end. If you can get past the whole "It takes premium gas" part, then you'll love owning and driving one.

Cons: Umm... maybe add a digital compass? The only car that I drove that could outperform the MX-5 in handling was the Boxster, and it wasn't by much (the 911 didn't come close to the Boxster or MX-5's handling)

Interesting Car. — With a rotary engine, and size, this small sports car is a lot of fun for adults with the need for a fun ride. It has a low profile which makes it easy to get into, but a challenge to get out of.

Pros: it is fun to be in.

Cons: too low to the ground.

Fun Driver, Very Comfortable And Good Space For A Classis Roadster. — Great car. Perfect for me as daily driver and weekend fun car. Handles nicely. Top is really impressive in that is simple, with not as many moving parts as the competition and it fits in the boot leaving trunk space. The auto and its simulated manual is kinda cool and though I have read some bad things about the sound system I find it perfectly adequate. Very pleased with the purchase.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: All good so far.

Cons: None.

Fun To Drive Roadster. — Although I have only put 1,700 miles on this little baby, it has been a joy to use around town and on country roads. This is a fun to drive and easy to own sport car that is as close to the feel of my old MGB's as any other little 4 banger that I have owned.

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

Pros: This car is absolutely fun to drive and a real head turner. Very economical to own and insure with an excellent manufacturers warranty and reputation.  Best selling roadster in the world for several years now.

Cons: Not the tire burning power of my old Honda S2000.
