2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6M)

Review

This is a fantastically fun car to drive. The power in the '06 is felt immediately upon pressing down on the accelerator. I took it to about 10 autocross events and it performed very well on the OEM street tires. The six speed transmission, however, required frequent shifting between second and third on faster courses. This is not a problem on the road as you can easily skip a gear without notice.

Favorite Features

The convertible top lowers and raises with one hand from the driver's seat without having to turn around. Handling is superb.

Suggested Improvements

The cup holders on the door are uncomfortable on your knee during aggressive cornering.
