A true sports car with great looks, remarkable agility, extraordinary overall performance, and plain good ol' fun is what I was looking for, and the MX5 provides these features in full measure, and at a price that couldn't be beat! I bought the car when I was 60, and feel as if I'm 18 every time I pull out of the garage. I've just looked at the 2006 models. The MX5 tradition lives on in this "upgunned" model. You can bet another new MX5 is out there in the future. Well done, Mazda!
Can cruise at 70 without a hiccup. Hugs the road as tight as Velcro. Its good looks turns heads and earns appreciative smiles. Bose sound system. It sounds like an MG of old, just as planned.
The only thing wrong with this well-engineered automobile is ... nothing!
My wife and I live about an hour from
the Sierra Nevada mountains on the
California side. Whenever we want to
take a Sunday drive, we hop in the
Miata and spend a wonderful day winding
through the foothills and mountains
with the top down. What a way to enjoy
Looks and handling.
A bit more trunk space (but not at the
expense of the car's basic design).
This is my second Miata. I loved the
first one (a '95), but this SE is even
better. I'm constantly complimented on
its looks and I've been very impressed
with the way it grips the curvy
mountain roads here.
I was disappointed to learn my SE
color would be available as a standard
color in 2004. It's much nicer to
leave the SE colors as exclusive.
My patience has been rewarded - I grew
up in Michigan, and now live in So.
Cal. A lifelong motorcyclist, it was
here that I could finally get what I
consider to be the finest 4-wheeled
equivalent of a bike - a Miata! Grins
from ear-to-ear, sensational handling,
bulletproof reliability, and at a price
that still can't be touched in this
segment (sorry, I have never warmed up
to the looks of the MR2). I now have a
pleasant dilemma in the garage: Bike
or car? This is indeed a classic
roadster in the purest of (all)
senses. Do yourself a favor - dismiss
what anyone else thinks, and take one
for a spin. You will not regret it.
