2002 Mazda MX-5 Miata SE 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
Review
Sold a 62 T-Bird and wanted an affordable used convertible as replacement. Tan interior and manual transmission were only requirements and purpose was for a summer car and not as a daily driver. Was not a Miata fan to start with and bought one from a friend mainly because I knew it was reliable and well taken care of. Also liked the fact that it was British Racing Green and a Special Edition fully loaded. Paid half the price I expected to pay for my original choices of z4 or boxster with same age/mileage. So far, so good. Comfort above what I expected. Acceptable motor/wind noise. Fun to drive. No rattles. Look and feel very solid.
Favorite Features
Beautiful looks. Good compromise of classic roadster philosophy versus modern design and comfort. Fit and quality finish of interior. Nice design of dash instrumentation. Easy use of convertible top. Expected reliability.
Suggested Improvements
Less power loss when A/C is on. A 5th or 6th gear that should act as a real overdrive and bring down more the RPM when using them. A little more horsepower. A real back wind deflector than the basically useless one installed. Windshield a bit higher or seat a little lower for 6 ft people.
