MazdaSpeed Miata: excellent!
By Biasin on


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


I've owned approximately 10 Mazdas and they've all been extremely reliable and wonderful cars. In 2001, I bought a Miata LS w/6 speed and ABS and all I wanted was a little more power which the good folks at MazdaSpeed now provide. I actually considered an S2000 but after test driving it and the MS MX-5 I preferred the Miata because it FELT faster and had way more torque at low RPM. It definitely pulls harder in the higher gears without needing to downshift and the interior quality is far superior to the Honda's. Also, the stereo is an awesome sounding 6 CD BOSE system which is much better than the Honda's single disc factory unit. Keep up the good work, MazdaSpeed. I look forward to the MS 3!

Best Features

Speed, handling, brakes, steering, shifter, stereo.

Worst Features

Cruise control should at least be optionally available (packaged with the leather) and the suspension should be adjustable as in the old MX-6 GT. The brakes should be larger (use the ones from the Mazda 3s) even though the stopping distances are quite short.
