If you are looking for a fun, 2 seat convertible, then this is the car for you. Car and Driver, Motor Trend and Consumer Reports have always rated the MX-5/Miata as a best buy and one of the most fun cars to drive.
While it may only have a 4 cylinder engine, it's very fast. And the car handles really well.
The power retractable hard top means that you go from having a solid roof over your head to the wind blowing thru your hair in 12 seconds. Also the hard top means your car is more secure and no extra noise when the top is up.
This is the second MX-5 that I have owned, the first a 95 model was a blast and this one is even better, I love the automatic convenience, and paddle shifters for fun .... the manual soft top goes up and down easily and driving it is just a joy. If you are looking for a great fun car to have .. this could be it. Not a lot of trunk space, but with a little juggling I can fit my golf clubs in the trunk (remove the woods and driver first unless you want to play with bent clubs ....) The heater is awesome, so even in cool weather the top down is fun!!!
