The best Miata yet!
By Brandon on


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


So much fun to drive and one of the best cars with the top down. Great looks inside and out. Comfy seats and bigger than the previous Miatas. Race car steering, race car transmission and race car suspension. Suspension turns in sharp while the wheels stick like super glue. Flick the steering wheel and you dive into the apex with barely any turns on the wheel and the whole car talks to you. Great exhaust note. Great gas mileage. I owned a Evo 8 and currently own a 350Z and a Lotus Elise an this is probably the best deal when it comes to handling. And has become my new weekend car and ever daily driver.

Best Features

The exterior looks great! Interior is comfy, practical, comes with no nonsense (most of it anyways). Steering is quick and light, chassis talks to you and is very communicative. Top down driving couldn't get any better. Transmission is probably one of the best ever. a great deal.

Worst Features

It's a 2 seater and has 4 cupholders. Gas door release is hidden in the storage area. Body roll sets in a little to early. Not as quick in the straights as a 350Z or a Boxster. Seats are hard to get used to but hold you in very well.
