It's an awesome driving experience for this 67 year young kid in the Texas Hill Country and the ease it handles and hugs the road on the curves. I've only had it for two weeks and it's averaging right at 30 MPG. My neighbor told me that it's a motorcyle on 4 wheels. The six speed auto tranny is very smooth and I'm still learning the paddle shifting feature which is fun. I agree with others, that you do need to stop after a couple of hours and limber up. Mazda did a wonderful job on the exterior and interior design and the soft top is so easy to operate. I wish I'd done this 10 years ago.
Overall design as it does turn heads, Bose sound system, ease of handling, fuel efficient as advertised, and just plain fun to drive.
Might add a few more horses to the engine and stronger fan blower, otherwise don't try to fix something that ain't broke.
