2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata Touring 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This vehicle is perfect for the times we live in, if you only need to transport yourself or one other person. It is comfortable, easy to drive, yet puts a silly grin on your face as soon as the go-pedal is pressed. The balance is great, and the car can easily be pushed to its limits without scaring the driver. The top is a dream to operate (I can put it up or down in 3-4 seconds), the mileage is beyond what is advertised, and the price is right! With the improved styling, Mazda may have more buyers than they think over the next year or so. This really is a practical car.

Favorite Features

Styling, balance, power, great shift effort, interior is almost anticlimactic - everything is exactly where it should be, no surprises. You never have to take your eyes off the road to find a button or dial.

Suggested Improvements

A little more side bolster on the seats. My 5'11" frame is starting to slide a little in corners. Disappointing when the top is up; this car is built to run with the top down all the time.
