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.
2008 Mazda Miata MX-5
2009 Mazda MX-5-MiataJon - Georgia12/29/2011
I wish I had never bought this car!!! At least in December!!! LOL. It's too cold to ride with the top down!! Had it down twice so far and I love it! I purchased the Grand Touring Edition with a convertible hard top, has all the bells and whistles! It it fun to drive, it has a 6 speed manual trans. It will Zoom Zoom. But driving it with the top down with the Bose Stereo going, its like a complete different car, than with the top up. Can't wait to get on some curvy mountain roads this spring with the top down! Handles like a dream! You won't go wrong with this little sports car!
Fun to drive

The Miata is very fun to drive and handles very well. The hard top roof is very convenient. The engine is a little loud. There is very limited trunk space and no spare tire. You will need snow tires for traction in the snow which run around $1,200 for four.
Nothing compares to the feeling of the wind whipping your hair back as you cruise in a well-built convertible. Well, almost nothing—the feeling of getting a great deal on your vehicle purchase is definitely a close second. You can enjoy both of these awesome sensations at the same time by selecting a high-quality convertible that sells for less than $20,000.
This sports car buying guide has 18 different sports cars for shoppers who want a little more driving excitement in their lives. There’s something for everyone here, from zippy four-cylinder convertibles to monstrous, 500-horsepower-plus sports cars that really push you back in their driver’s seats!
