I had a 2009 Miata and I loved it. It was the hardest car I had to part with. For this little car the cornering was great and it picked up fast. It is a fun car to have. Whoever buys one of these I hope you enjoy it at much as I did. You will not regret it.
There's nothing like a roadster for excellent cornering and maneuvering, but I believe the Miata to be the best roadster I've driven. Had a Toyota MR2 Spyder prior to this, which I dearly loved, but the Miata is more refined - the steering and braking are like glue on velvet.
In terms of comfort, this car is a great fit for a short/petite person like me. All the controls are easily within reach and I never feel cramped. Dashboard is great - traditional yet sporty - none of that crazy futuristic stuff.
With major road bumps, you'll hear loud bangs inside the cabin, but you will also notice that road bumps will not bounce you or sway you in this car, like in other cars. It handles dips in the road with unbelievable stability.
Mazda Miata MX-5
2009 Mazda MX-5-MiataDutchlu - , 07/08/2013
I purchased a Mazda Miata MX-5 2009 Red ragtop from CarMax in May. I was generally pleased with my purchase except for the failure of CarMax to provide full disclosure on the car. Following my review on CarFax, I determined that car had been in an accident, but that information was not revealed to me by the dealer.
I was also told that the car had two previous owners but the CarFax information listed three prior owners.
In general, thus far, I am not displeased with the car. I am displeased that what I thought was receiving full information on the history of the car was not presented to me at time I was looking to purchase.
