Cure to the midlife crisis
By ne28202 on


2003 Mazda MX-5 Miata SE 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


For one whom has spent the last fifteen years in station wagons, seats six sedans, and mini-vans, this little machine is the cure to the midlife crisis. The engine purrs, the handling is brisk and it just plain fun. I rate the Miata right up with my YZ 250 dirt bike on the fun meter. Don't waste your time with the automatic. I test drove the 6 speed first for about 20 minutes and then didn't even make it out of the dealer parking lot with the automatic. (Wife will just have to re- learn to drive a stick shift.

Best Features

Everything. The dash is well layed out, seats are comfortable, top is a snap (literally) to put down and put up. The car is a BLAST!

Worst Features

turn signal and wiper controls seem a little flimsy.
