Vehicle2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewSo today was probably the perfect scenario for driving the new 2013 Club spec Miata.
Sun was shining, not a single cloud in the sky, and traffic was minimul.
It took some getting used to with the short throw 6 speed amnual and the quick to react ABS.
The 2.0 DOHC puts all 167 horses on the ground thanks to the 4.10 rear end.
I am very particualr when it comes to sports cars, but this one kept me smiling.
You already expect these sporty special editions to have a horrid ride quality, however mazda found a nice medium between comfort and harshness.
I would Highly recomend this car to drivers who want to race the tracks on saturday, and enjoy small trips to the store on monday.
Best Features4.10 gear ratio, Handling, Grip, steering response, chassis.
Worst FeaturesInterior, price, plastics

RE: "Suggested Improvements: PRICE" ===> Allowing for inflation, THE MIATA PRICE HASN'T RISEN SINCE 1990. Your "Club Spec" with "Convenience Package" is better equipped than the 1990 edition's "Base" trim level with "A" package and A/C. That car cost about $25,000 in 2014 dollars, compared to about $23,000 the comparably equippped Club Spec. The 3rd gen is a vastly improved car, with far better safety features and improved ergonomics, too! Maintaining a stable price for TWENTY-FIVE years is remarkable enough. If the MX-5 were a consumer electronics products, "cheaper" might be reasonable, but for an automobile, your expectation defies logic.Report it

P.S. Work the inflation numbers yourself at http://www.usinflationcalculator.com/ -- The 1990 model year pricing is available on Miata.net in the last "Table" displayed on the "Production Information" page at http://www.miata.net/faq/production.htmlReport it
