Excellent, but a few gripes
By BobB on


2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


No dispute about this being the best handling, most refined & practical under-25k roadster. Mine's a GT, supposedly top-of-the line niceties... not. No fuel/trip computer. The ECU knows how much fuel it's burning. Let me know! No MP3 support in the CD changers (without a $500 upgrade just for MP3 support) Crazy cheap. No external media input, despite looking like it on the stereo faceplate --> devious. Intermittent wipers not adjustable rate, as if there were only 3 settings of rain. On/off seat heaters are off or hot.

Best Features

Easy top big trunk for this class of car.

Worst Features

4 cup holders for a 2-seater?? Useless center cup holders (in the way of my arm shifting). Change the center two to a storage bin (with snap-in cup holders if so compelled). Padded arm rests.
