ReviewMy 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.
Best FeaturesStyling, handling, build-quality, engine note, interior, manual top, weight (or lack thereof), wheels, reliability, unwavering grin factor.
Worst FeaturesThe MAZDASPEED MX-5 is already at dealers. Nice to have a step-up if that time comes. Big if, however. I love this car.
