2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring 2dr Convertible w/Power Hard Top (2.0L 4cyl 6A)
This car is extremely fun to drive. Grips in the corners and gives you great feedback. Would love if they put a turbo charger on it, but the 4 cyl engine still pulls nicely. I test drove both the manual and auto 6sp. I ended up with the automatic because it shifts quickly at near redline when driving spiritedly, and I do more highway driving and did not want the suspension package that was on most of the 6sp manuals.
Road handling characteristics. This car does what ever you tell it too. Simply fun to drive
Turbo charger, car would be even better with a few more Horses! And head room, at only 5-11 my hair rubs on the hard top, and when sitting shotgun for distances there is no leg room.
