2004 Mazda Mazdaspeed MX-5 Miata Convertible 2dr Roadster (1.8 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

The only bad thing about this car is
that I am not the only one who owns it!
Go-cart handling, lots of power and a
sunny day with the top down makes some
girls look at you as if they wanted to
jump in the passenger seat.


Best Features

Turbo engine Handling Nice interior Sport suspension


Worst Features

The cup holder seems to have conflicts with my elbow

2004 Mazda Mazdaspeed MX-5 Miata Convertible 2dr Roadster (1.8 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

love the drive , had a boxster
previously and was sick of all the
porsche hype . This miata is half the
cost and twice the fun . The handling
is incredible and the turbo lag is
really non-existent . Performs
extremely well on the bends and
turns . No oversteer or understeer it
goes where I point it . Unbeleivable
body rigidity for a ragtop. I really
like the fact that it handles and
drives like a go-kart with an adequate
amount of practicality . This is one
of the most fun vehicles I have ever
driven , can't seem to get the smile
off my face . The torque band is
exactly where it should be for a
vehicle of this weight.


Best Features

Short shift , very nice . 17 inch wheels look awesome and are very functional. The spoilers are not too bold but make a statement. I love the color , red with gold metalic . Interior is well appointed again not too bold but just enough to say COOL .


Worst Features

More trunk space . My boxster had tones of space with the mid engine design. Front stabilizer bar should be a smaller diameter , with the strut stifner in place the front end is a slight bit harsh .

Review

The MS miata is a real work of art.The
style can't be beat at any price. This
car has the ability to put a smile on
your face moving or standing still. The
transmission needed to be broken in, for
the first 1000 miles I was wondering if
this new beefed up trany was ever going
to shift smoothly like my loved
1990,then like magic, the trany went
from stiff and bulky,(actually missing
gears or refusing to go in altogether,
Revlimiter was used many times because
the shift was too slow in engaging.) to
smooth and precise the way miata's have
always been.The handling is razor sharp
this little car hauls a$$. The cockpit
fits like a glove(it's great to be
average). Finally I can get over my 1990.


Best Features

Looks, the Red may be better looking but the gray is more masculine. Handling, shifting,over all "oneness" defines this car. Value, I paid under 24 with the leather and fabric top. Speaking of the top, excellent design. ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM.


Worst Features

Hey mazda give us more rev. 6500rpm is just getting into the beef, another grand would do, you know the engine can handle it. Cup holders are useless when trying to shift. The dead pedal is made for a size 6.The gas mileage is only fair, around 20 mpg. but over all a well thought out SPORTS CAR

Review

My Mazdaspeed Miata is the perfect
blend of performance, sportiness,
handling, reliability, and quality,
which is critical to me. The only
convertible I seriously considered was
the 240HP Honda S2000. Though its a
great car, it wasn't worth the extra
$6,000 or so; not to me. The only
thing my Miata was lacking: I'd have
liked a power top. BOSE stereo is
great, too!


Best Features

The available power provided by the turbo.


Worst Features

Power top.

Review

Short and sweet. After owning a
standard Miata this is a great
improvement. There is no complaints
here.


Best Features

Stylish leather seats, perky turbo, and the suspension to match.


Worst Features

A better free flowing exhaust to help the turbo breath. Other than that its perfect.
