Great roadster

2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring 2dr Convertible w/Power Hard Top (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Outstanding roadster that beautifully captures the essence of classic British roadsters of the 50s and 60s without the problems, e.g., oil leaks, Lucas electronics, SU carbs, etc. Great gearbox, 50-50 weight distribution, excellent powerband and amazingly engineer PRHT add up to an unsurpassed roadster experience. Great bargain when compared to much pricier competition. Especially noteworthy is the fact that the retractable hardtop takes up no trunk space, so a set of golf clubs fits in the boot nicely. You really can't ask for a more balanced approach to roadster motoring. A great automobile.

Best Features

Power retractable hard top (PRHT). Provides a measure of security over soft top, as well as less noise at speed. Goes up or down in only 12 seconds, and takes up no trunk room.

Worst Features

Although I enjoy the exhaust note, I'm contemplating an aftermarket exhaust with just a bit more resonance to it.
