I purchased my MS Miata in Feb. '05. Overall, the car is great. When I test drove the car, I didn't imagine it to handle like a go cart. The instant I got into the Miata, I had a good feeling about it. The design was marvelous. The tranny was a little hard to get used to at first but by the time the car was broken in, it shifts fine. The turbo in the car is excellent. but the ride is a little bumpier then I thought it would be; I could feel every little texture of the road. The interior was done just right, everything is easy to use. The sound system is just right. The best thing about this vehicle is the price. It is a good car for around town driving but needs work on the highway.
Turbocharged, Bose sound system, superior handling, glass window in the rear.
Supercharger would be better for the car. I would like the power off the line. The other thing I would change is the gearing for highway driving. I can be on the highway and driving at 60 mph and the tach will be at 3000 rpm.
