Still Smiling
By G Feltis on


2001 Mazda MX-5 Miata Special Edition 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


This is one fun car. Looked for several months before purchasing a used Special Edition with 53K miles. This is one of many Mazda's I have purchased. Great handling, good brakes, this car begs to be driven enthusiastically. The six speed is great, shifts smoothly and precisely and keeps the rpm's below 4000 at 75 mph. I will go out of my way to take a twisty set of roads, this car is easy to push hard in the corners. It takes a set and with smooth power application will drift progressively,and when pushed hard will break lose in the rear. If this Mazda lasts as long as my 91 truck I will be smiling for years to come.

Best Features

6 speed, limited slip differential, British Racing Green paint.

Worst Features

A bit more power without a weight penalty.
