Special Edition - Near Perfect
By Matthew on
Vehicle2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata Special Edition 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewI had a hard time finding the special edition here in SoCal. When I found one for sale, I went to see it, and it was beautiful. The light blue doesn't seem too feminine for me. I love the contrast of the brown leather against the blue exterior. The car handles beautifully, and is always a blast to drive. It has rained 4 days since I bought it, and those days are the only time that the top has been up. The manual top is just perfect, easy up and easy down from a seating position. Throttle response is great especially when merging onto a highway. But the real treat this car delivers is the steering. Near perfect! Lotus Elise is the only car with better steering than Miata.
Best FeaturesI love the dark brown leather with light blue stitching. The other favorite feature is the steering response. The turning radius is so small that I can do a complete 360 degree turn on my narrow street with cars parallel parked on each side. This car is so easy to love... I can't say enough!
Worst FeaturesFew complaints here. Console cupholders are useless especially with the manual shifter. Improve the door holders, and make a dedicated iPod or blackberry holder on the console. Also...could Mazda please include a hardwired iPod connector for this car? Other than these 2 things no complaints.
