2002 Mazda MX-5 Miata SE 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
I am not a car person and have never cared much about what car I drove. It was strictly functional. This yellow Miata changed that. After 4 years it is still an absolute blast to drive and people still comment about what a cool car it is. I drive it all year round with a hard top for the winter months. It looks cool like that too. My husband loves to drive it too. It is most fun on windy mountain roads. We go out driving on weekends just for the pleasure of driving it.
The gold-metallic-flecked-yellow color is stunning in the sun. The way it handles responsively is a close second.
Automatic headlight turn-off. If you forget to turn off the lights you will need a jump after about one hour.
