2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata Sport 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I always wanted a convertible. My Brother had owned a couple of these in the past. Doing research, I found buying used is no bargain, so I bought new. I love this car. Its fast enough, handles like a dream.
The top stays down 90+% of the time, when its raining/ bad weather, I drive other car. Plan on keeping this for long time. This car is small and so am I, so its big enough,
bigger people may have a problem here. The car is very very basic, although I got the convenience package;I recommend this. There are few things that I would like to have on this car, but the good so outnumber the bad...This is the cheapest convertible you can get, insurance is reasonable…
the most smiles per $/mile

Best Features

convertible, both having and operation bought "sport" cause it has 16" tires, will be cheaper to replace and because there are not as low profile, a better ride handling is awesome fast enough for me I get at least what the EPA # have. got 34 on the road too. they haven't gamed the numbers like some companies have ( and been caught doing) incredible value…. 24K out the door ( pa 6% tax too) 4 months and 2000 miles do not not know reliability, but my bro owed 2 and had no problems, and mine stays in a garage annually milage will be around 5000 miles a year

Worst Features

1)cloth on seat carpets on floor are sup par 2)should be able to roll up window after engine is turned off ( timed like on my civic) window should not be fully up when putting up top. 3)trunk release should only work when key is on, its never secure, with a soft top like mine. 4)the visors are rather useless and so so cheap, really 5)the interior plastics are cheap cheap cheap 6)no spare tire( don't know how you get around this one) # 2 and 3 would cost min $$ getting seat covers next year visor need a total redue…..useless Bluetooth only in a big$$ option on top level car, pushing it to 30K…. really
