2002 Mazda MX-5 Miata LS 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I have owned my 2002 Mazda MX-5 Miata for about a year now but have been racing miatas for about 5 years now and i would recommend these cars to anyone who wants a car you will never be bored of driving, outstanding reliability, the handling is matched with that of $100,000 cars, I have personally seen miatas smoke Z06 corvettes and Ferrari by half a mile on the road course, and by whole seconds on the Auto-X course. These little cars receive little respect from muscle car owners, but the real drivers car owners (ie. Porsche, Lotus, Aston Martin) they know whats up... As a daily driver, midlife crisis car, or a professional racecar the miata will always come through.

Best Features

Gorgeous body lines, it looks like a $80,000 Italian sports car and turns heads like such. The handling is the #1 feature of these cars, its what they are built to do. Bose premium stereo is awesome and even after 10 years still crystal clear.

Worst Features

More factory Horse Power, Factory HID headlamps, more aggressive exhaust note, larger factory brakes with ventilated discs, no more perforated vinyl seat bottoms, (prone to splitting)
