Lovin' it

Vehicle: 2004 Mazda MX-5 Miata Cloth 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Looked at S2000, Z3/4, Audi TT, and many others. Wanted a weekend "toy". This was by far the best value, without sacrificing any of the features I wanted (zip and more zip). Better handling in the curves than the others.




Miata mama's fun toy!

I love my little Miata! It's cute, cool and fun to drive! I especially like how it takes turns/curves and at an accelerated speed, too. BUT, I find myself doing ticketable (is that a word??) things just because I can! Call it my mid-life fling, but this is a car I'm happy to have met!




Great roadster

It's been a blast! Value is the bottom line and this is it.




Our midlife crisis

Vehicle: 2004 Mazda MX-5 Miata Cloth 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

We are 58 and 62 and were in a weekend rut. Last July 4 we bought our red Miata convertible and have spent every nice(and some not so nice)warm weekend exploring within 200 miles of home. The gas mileage is 28-30 mpg. In September we plan to drive it to New England for a two week trip.It is easy to drive and reminds us of the MG B we owned in the 60's. We belong to a Miata club and have been on several rallies. Most of the people in the club are either very young, or our age. This car is fun for anyone...our 16 year old granddaughter has her eye on it!




My "wind-up"

It is a joy to get in it and feel the mini-power. And the good feeling I have while I am in it.
