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

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.
