MX 5 pulls us out of a rut.

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


This car is not for a person who wants basic transportation. This car is for someone who truly enjoys driving. With four children we had become the typical kid hauling, van owning parents. Not having driven a stick for 15 years, I had forgotten how much fun it is to go through the gears. Especially the way this car shifts and welcomes high revs, it really puts a smile on my face. My wife and I are enjoying short getaway trips and evening drives. We now look forward to traveling the winding country roads of southeastern Ohio instead of avoiding them. Our MX 5 has pulled us out of our rut.

Best Features

Exterior styling gets plenty of lookers and the interior fit comfort is better than I thought I’d find. The instrumentation is perfectly placed and everything is within easy reach of the driver.

Worst Features

I would like to add HomeLink as an option as well as variable intermittent wipers.
