2002 Mazda MX-5 Miata LS 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great little car. Don't forget it's intended purpose and you'll love it! More trunk room than before - a real plus. A little more power would be nice, but, this issue can easily addressed aftermarket. LS trim and suspension (drive both before you buy) upgrades are worth the money if you want to save yourself some aftermarket work.


Favorite Features

FUN TO DRIVE!, drop top, 6 speed trans, cornering is the best


Suggested Improvements

bit more power, tilt wheel, be prepared for engine/exhaust heat convection into interior

Review

This car is as fun as driving gets for those who want handling over power. The top is incredibly easy to opperate, steering is great, shifting is beautiful, and handling is superb. The car has bulletproof reliability and drives as solid as you can get. It's lower performance limits make this an incomparibly fun city vehicle, and it loves to be driven like it's hated!


Favorite Features

Great agile handling, super-easy top, fun fun fun


Suggested Improvements

More supportive seats. Truly can't think of anything else for this price.

Review

Fun to drive top up or down. Top is watertight. Ergonomics are good. Base stereo sound quite good.


Favorite Features

Easy to open / close top. Handling in corners is superb.


Suggested Improvements

Needs a bit more power - especially w/ A/C on! I wish I had just one more inch of legroom.

2002 Mazda MX-5 Miata SE 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

This has got to be the most fun on the road for the price. I can honestly say that I am not car rich and cash poor!! What a blast to drive and everyone seems to be envious when you tell them that you drive a Miata... unfortunatly up here in Canada it is only good for six months of the year. My other car is a Protegé5 and it is just as much fun to drive!!!


Favorite Features

6 speed transmission; power to weight ratio; overall looks.


Suggested Improvements

Better speakers; make supercharger available at the dealership; car can be a little jerky at start-up from the line.
