    Great Third Car —

    I was waiting for the new ND design but I want the retractable hardtop and not canvas. So I bought a 2012 Special edition for $a measly $20600 with 19K miles. The car is really fun to drive and handles on rails. Its not as fast as my Corvette was but s far far more reliable and I would rather drive a slower car fast than a fast car slow. GM does not make great cars IMO as far as reliability and value goes. The Miata is comfortable and has adequate room for driver and passenger. My biggest complaint is the lack of modern tech. BT works with phone but no music streaming. have to use the AUX IN or buy a BT aux in module. Only one 12V recetacle. But it does have HomeLink go figure. The new ND is teah laden with a lot of "nanny" tech such as lane change monitoring which is not needed on this car. But I would rather have more than less tech so i will be buying an ND IF and or when they release a Hard Top Convertible. The MX% is far far less expensive to maintain than the Corvette. I miss NOTHING in going from my 08 Corvette Z51 to this Miata. Except maybe the outward design which again the new ND MX5 has resolve to my satisfaction, In the mean time i will drive from the inside out and enjoy this economical traditional roadster I have the Automatic and prefer it over the standard. don;t feel the experience is lacking at all. I had a MT Vette then the AT and preferred the AT. Purists would rather have the Standard. I drove one and really prefer the automatic. that said I will not pay $1100 for the AT option on the ND if I buy new. I will buy the MT and save over a grand. I know it is unfair to compare to a Corvette but that is my most recent experience and I prefr the MX5 which says a lot about this fun little reliable car.

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

    Pros: Great car for the money
    Great fuel economy
    Traditional Roadster
    Retractable Hardtop is the best

    Cons: Bumpy ride
    Cabin noise
    Limited teach
