EVERYONE smiles at this car
By lifesabrook on


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


Bought this as a second car -- midlife
fantasy, tantalized me from its spot on
the car lot. Got great price on 1-year
old model with only 8,200 miles on it.
I smile when I drive it, and everyone
else smiles back. Corners like crazy
and maneuvers with confidence. White
paint chips easily, and while my car
has sport suspension, alarm, gorgeous
wheels and stainless racing exhaust, it
really needs cruise control; leg
position on accelerator gets VERY
uncomfortable on the highway.
Passenger seat also rattles on bumps
when empty and black cloth seats always
look "linty."

Best Features

Looks so sexy, great fun at a low price. Old fashioned sports car feeling but with mechanical reliability. Great "growl" to racing exhaust.

Worst Features

Sound system is useless with top down. All models should come with cruise control. Fatigue factor on long highway drives -- no cruise, high RPMs, steering around bumps and potholes due to stiff suspension.
