2004 Mazda Mazdaspeed MX-5 Miata 2dr Roadster (1.8 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

I got mine back in April right off the truck. It's the greatest car I've ever owned! The only complaints I have with it are that I wish it had a key hole light, and cruise control. The shifter takes some getting used to. The tendency is to over guide it when all it needs is pushed back and forth with a bit of side pressure for 1-2 and 5-6. The car gets 32 mpg on the highway, and 24 mpg in town. It has just a bit of oversteer, with none of the body flex that my '91 model had. The ride is kind of brutal on the freeway, but that's to be expected. Just make sure you're pointed in the right direction and there's no cars in front of you when the turbo kicks in!

Favorite Features

Acceleration, gas mileage, fit and finish, and awesome handling.

Suggested Improvements

It could use better interior lighting and cruise control.
