The MX-5 has the heart and soul of a pure sports car. It appears and feels like Mazda put 110% into the MX-5. I am completely satisfied with the driving experience. Fit and finish are excellent. Performance is more that satisfactory. Interior comfort is excellent. I have never been so passionate and thrilled with ownership of any automobile. The bang you get for a very reasonable buck is great. Remember this is a sports car, so storage and frills are not the point ... it's the driving experience. Before you buy a Porsche, BMW or S2000 go drive the MX-5. You'll have plenty of change left over. And your insurance agent will not reach so deep into your pocket.
Smooth power, 6 speed manual and interior ergonomics. The entire automobile is really easy on your eyes.
