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


My patience has been rewarded - I grew
up in Michigan, and now live in So.
Cal. A lifelong motorcyclist, it was
here that I could finally get what I
consider to be the finest 4-wheeled
equivalent of a bike - a Miata! Grins
from ear-to-ear, sensational handling,
bulletproof reliability, and at a price
that still can't be touched in this
segment (sorry, I have never warmed up
to the looks of the MR2). I now have a
pleasant dilemma in the garage: Bike
or car? This is indeed a classic
roadster in the purest of (all)
senses. Do yourself a favor - dismiss
what anyone else thinks, and take one
for a spin. You will not regret it.

Best Features

Styling, handling, build-quality, engine note, interior, manual top, weight (or lack thereof), wheels, reliability, unwavering grin factor.

Worst Features

The MAZDASPEED MX-5 is already at dealers. Nice to have a step-up if that time comes. Big if, however. I love this car.
