2001 Mazda MX-5 Miata LS 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Overall this car has been what I
expected. Lots of fun to drive. Not
alot of money. Not too hard on the gas.
A few problems: My clutch has
deteriorated immensly. Shudders and
stutters on Moderate effort starts in
first few miles. Worse on wet or humid
days, going to persue warranty. Some of
door trim has come loose. Safety catch
on roof latch stopped catching after 6
months(roof still stays closed but
could accidently release). Factory
tires lasted 25,000 miles (Bridgstone
Turanzas). Seats are too soft in the
lumbar area. Emergency Brake handle is
a serious
knee space intruder.

Best Features

Easy drop manuel top w/ Glass Window (I operate from the driver seat with one hand). 16 in wheels & 45 series Tires. Tight shifting and Great Handling. Bose Sound System did not disapoint.

Worst Features

change emergency brake location/design. Add Telscoping to steering wheel. when seat is back for 6' drivers wheel is too far away. Firm up seats and improve shape. they are too cushy and do not provide support.
