This car is pure fun. Most bang for the buck. With the suspension package, traction control, and stability control cornering is superb and virtually no nose dive when braking. Ride is suprisingly smooth for such a short wheelbase and suspension package. The MX5 fits like a glove and everything is in its proper place except for the cup holders in the console which I have found to be a good place to stash gasoline receipts. The Copper Red Mica with tan leather has drawn nothing but compliments. Gas mileage is impressive returning 30 mpg in the first 600 miles of which only 200 has been highway driving. The convertible top is a marvel, just unlatch it and heave it over your shoulder.
Great handling with a fairly comfortable ride. Easiest operating non power convertible top on the market. Steering wheel controls for sound system lets you keep eyes on the road at all time. Power is more than adequate and engine revs like crazy but still pulls well at low rpm in higher gears.
Scrap the console cup holders on the manual transmission and make it a storage bin.
