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.
Zip, looks, and handling.
Cup holder is an annoyance. Need one, but not sure where I would recommend placing it. 20-30 more HP could be interesting.
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!
How it handles turns/curves, the
sportiness of the look.
Wish it got better gas mileage (mine is
automatic). Wouldn't mind an automatic
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!
Great night illuminating
headlights,tight gear pattern with easy
shifting, comfortable seats, ability to
raise the top in less than 30 seconds,
just looks so good!
