Miata--best kept secret
By Roadhugger on


2004 Mazda MX-5 Miata LS 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Purchased a 2000 Miata for my wife in
June of 2003. I thought the car was a
joke until I drove it. Interior is a
little small for me but perfect for my
wife. The car's handling is
outstanding and can't be beat on those
curvy, hilly roads. Maybe a little
underpowered at the start but once
rolling it's got plenty of getup and
go. Even with an automatic transmission
the economy is great at 26mpg around
town and over 30mpg on the open road.
Plus the car appears to be well built
with perfect alignment of doors,
hood,trunk lid and body panels. I'm
now a Miata nut who leaves his T-top
Camaro in the garage and takes the
Miata out to burn up the roads.

Best Features

My favorite feature of the Miata is the super-outstanding handling on the open road. Whether hilly and curvy or straight open road the car handles fantastically.

Worst Features

To improve the car I'd have to add about 40hp more and a tilt steering wheel. The tilt wheel would make entering and exiting the car for big guys like me a lot easier.
