2003 Mazda MX-5 Miata LS 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Hey, I did my time in minivans. This
is my "other" car. Have been smiling
ever since hubby bought it for my
anniversary present last summer.
Always have very silly grin when
driving. I make up excuses to drive
whenever it is sunny, and always take
the long, long way home.


Best Features

An absolute blast to drive.


Worst Features

You must be kidding.

I LOVE driving my Miata! Definately no
buyers remorse here. Highly recommend
this car for the fun-minded and quality-
minded.


Best Features

Ease of top operation and "go-cart" style handling as well as "short shifting" gear change.


Worst Features

Mazdaspeed is already doing it for 2005 model.

2003 Mazda MX-5 Miata Shinsen 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Will always have a least 1 convertible
in my driveway thanks to Mazda.Car is
everything a roadster should be.Price
makes it a clear choice over any sports
car on the road today.


Best Features

No wind effect with top down due to deflector.16" tires are a great feature and the Shinsen colors are great.


Worst Features

None.Listen.You wanted a Roaster you got one.A great one.

Review

I am LOVING my new Miata. I was
hesitant at first due to the small size
of the cabin, and the 5.1 cubic feet of
trunk space, but I didn't use my
backseat anyway, so I DON'T miss it.
The legroom is only slightly less than
my last vehicle (Celica), and it
handles like a dream....tight steering.
Lots of "zoom-zoom". Great car.


Best Features

Gorgeous exterior....garnet red mica with parchment leather interior and cloth top. Love the Bose sound system and the tight steering.


Worst Features

Would appreciate more trunk space...storage in general.

Review

This car exemplifies my life today; it
is a drastic change from the pickup
truck I traded in. I am rebuilding my
life and wanted a car that reflected
who I am today and who I hope to
become. Wherever I go, I receive
wonderful compliments on my car.


Best Features

I love the Bose stereo system! As a music lover, and as a person who spends a lot of time driving, it is paramount to an enjoyable trip. I can crank up the base and the volume and nothing vibrates or rattles. It's great.


Worst Features

I can't think of a thing I'd change about my car. Maybe an automatic top, because I don't have the upper arm strength necessary to bring the top back up, although I can get it down easily enough from the driver's seat.
