Fun drive-add inches
By gary moon on
2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata Sport 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Love the exterior style, price was a major factor in purchase. Turns out the machine is a hoot to drive, I fell in love during the test drive with the zippy feel and handling. My salesman just about had a coranary while I was puttng this car through its paces. Shifting the Miata is great fun, I love torturing the transmission from red light to red light.
5 Speed shift, acceleration, colors (Silver and Black), 5 spoke rims, the ease of use of the pop-top. Being low to ground is a great feel. (But I wish they would provide a lift recliner for getting in and out of the car.)
All cupholders stink, door holders take up valuable space for a 6 foot 230 lb guy like me. Give me a spare donut tire instead of a can of expand-a-foam and a aquarium pump. The stereo is kind of muddled at highway speeds.
