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


I had a '99 Miata with a few options
and was very impressed with the great
handling, fun driving, and reliability
it offered. To date the '99 has never
seen the dealership again.

Times changed and I could afford the
exact Miata I wanted, a midnight blue
with leather and sport suspension. It
looks awesome. It feels a little more
stable in bumpy turns thanks to some
chasis bracing that was added this year.

There is no power difference from '99
to '01 or '02 models. However, I love
the car and it's many positive traits.

The only negative is the driving
position needs to be improved.

Best Features

Handling, looks, style, price. If you wait till late in the year, you can usually get $3-5k off the sticker.

Worst Features

More knee room on the right side of the footwell. (from the gas pedal up) It's an awkward driving position. An option for more power would be nice.
