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


I purchased this MX-5 barely used with 11900 miles. I have had a blast with this car driving through the mountains and back roads. Handling is impeccable and crisp. Power is more that adequate and braking is fantastic. It is snug bit comfortable once in the cock pit. Shifting is sweet with it's close ratio gears. Very smooth operation on both highway and back road driving. This is the first manual transmission I've driven in aprox 20 years and it was like riding a bicycle. Mpg has been 34 highway and 27 city. It is noisy with the top up but drop the top and you forget about any noise except the exhaust growl. Great car.

Best Features

Quick top operation, close gear ratio, performance and handling.

Worst Features

Sound system is pretty weak at any speed. Needs a big boost. center console is in need to padding and a telescoping steering week would be nice for shorter driver like myself or even adjustable pedals.
