2001 Mazda MX-5 Miata Convertible 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My Mazda Miata MX-5 fulfilled everything I wanted in a convertible - sleek, sexy and sporty. It's a blast to drive. I can't wait to until 5pm when I can leave work and have some real fun. Handles wonderfully, stops on a dime and I'm usually the first off the line from a red light.


Best Features

My favorite features are the curvy body style and tight handling.


Worst Features

More power under the hood!

I love my Miata. Pros: 1.) It handles like a dream and is a lot of fun to drive. 2.) You can beat most cars off the line. 3.) It looks great. 4.) Reliable 5.) Good gas mileage (if you choose not to have fun.) Cons: 1.) No storage space. 2.) Loud road noise. I love my Miata.

Review

The Miata is one of those cars people just awe over, you can't help but name it, you want to call 'her' something. The sleek curves give off a sense of class, while the small, but cocky stance says "I want to play". The Miata, in my opinion, is underrated, it has enough power for most people, and enough aftermarket support for the rest of us. A light-weight rear-wheel drive car is just one of those things that any generation could admire. Cruising the interstate with the top down, wind blowing.. You can't resist but feel that you're free.


Best Features

I would have to say that my favorite feature is the gas pedal... Just kidding, in all reality, my favorite features would be the easily accessible sound system, easy to change out and upgrade if you needed, and the other would be the abundance of space in the engine bay.


Worst Features

With the Miata you'll definately want to upgrade to a short-ram intake system, and probably an aftermarket exhaust. And you'll definately not want to skimp on the sound system, a good high-quality amp and component speakers with a good quality head-unit will do wonders for this car.

Review

I have had this car for about ten
months, and it has been a great
investment. With the addition of roll
bars, 17 inch wheels, supercharger, and
all new audio, this car is amazing. It
handles like a champ with a great
amount of power. You cannot beat this
vehicle in price versus quality and
performane. I have yet to have any
issues with reliablity. It has not yet
seen the inside of the dealership.
With many Miata clubs and many
aftermarket components, this car has
been great fun and entertainment. I
would highly recommend over the MR2 and
the S2000.


Best Features

Handling, Styling, Top Down Fun


Worst Features

Mazdaspeed Miata has the right idea.

Review

Bought this as a second car -- midlife
fantasy, tantalized me from its spot on
the car lot. Got great price on 1-year
old model with only 8,200 miles on it.
I smile when I drive it, and everyone
else smiles back. Corners like crazy
and maneuvers with confidence. White
paint chips easily, and while my car
has sport suspension, alarm, gorgeous
wheels and stainless racing exhaust, it
really needs cruise control; leg
position on accelerator gets VERY
uncomfortable on the highway.
Passenger seat also rattles on bumps
when empty and black cloth seats always
look "linty."


Best Features

Looks so sexy, great fun at a low price. Old fashioned sports car feeling but with mechanical reliability. Great "growl" to racing exhaust.


Worst Features

Sound system is useless with top down. All models should come with cruise control. Fatigue factor on long highway drives -- no cruise, high RPMs, steering around bumps and potholes due to stiff suspension.
