2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata Sport 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
This car is a blast to drive! The fit and quality of the exterior and interior are very good to excellent. The road noise at highway speed is acceptable, you can still have a conversation with your passenger. The car has plenty of power, you don't even need to down-shift when passing at highway speed. The short shift close ratio gear box is precise and easy to use. The cup holders in the center console are pretty useless as anything in them will impede shifting. Gas mileage has averaged about 25MPG but that is with a lot of city driving. And .. IT'S FUN TO DRIVE!
The handling and quickness. Ease of raising and lowering the top. Gauge and control placement, and driving comfort.
Get rid of the console cup holders, another storage area would be more useful. A supercharger option would make this car the baddest thing on the street under $40,000.00.
