2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata Sport 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
This car was designed for people who love to drive. It has a firm suspension and perfect balance. No body roll, and very direct steering. This thing corners like it's on rails and stops fast. More trunk space than other convertibles. Trunk space isn't taken up when the top is down - it goes into a separate pocket. Can put the soft top up or down with one hand from the drivers seat. No luxuries in the cabin - it's a sports car. If it hasn't got it, you don't need it. Excellent build quality.
Trunk space - more than you think. Easy soft top operation. Paddle shifters on steering wheel. Responsive, sports car feel and performance. Reliable, and gets good mileage (although with a small tank, you fill up more). The MX 5 is pure driving fun! Just try not smiling when you drive it.
Factory stereo is poor (replaced immediately). Radio reception poor (listen to iPod instead). Seats can cause some hip discomfort on long trips.
