Driving isn't boring anymore
By ValiantSailor on


2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Ever own a car so fun that you looked for excuses to go driving, or taking the long way home? That's the Miata, or MX-5 as it's now called. This car is so responsive it seems the driver can control it with thoughts alone. Light...predictable...responsive...FUN! All this and 30MPG, too!

Best Features

The six-speed manual transmission is one of the smoothest I've ever encountered, with short throws that seem almost automatic. The air conditioner and heater are both excellent. I drive top down all winter long, because the heater works so well. Same with the a/c in the summer.

Worst Features

Stock suspension needs a bit of tightening. The optional Mazdaspeed springs improve the car's look and its handling.
