I never thought I'd buy a Miata. I'm a pretty tall guy and a long-time Honda driver. I also thought the Miata would be underpowered. All it took to change my mind was one test drive. First, the car fits my 6'3" body like a glove, with no headroom or legroom issues even with the top up. And, although it's not a muscle car with a huge chunk of metal under the hood, this car is a the perfect sports car--fast enough to knock you back in your seat off a red light, light enough to throw it around curves, and completely balanced. I feel more comfortable driving up twisty mountain roads at 50mph than I would in a Mustang at 30. The next smile you'll get is when it comes time to fill the Miata up. I routinely get 25mpg city and got 36mpg on my last cross-country trip. About that cross country trip: driving very long distances is always a bit uncomfortable, but having the top down does help :)
This is my fourth Miata - I have driven them since 1995. I really enjoy driving Miatas, and my latest one that I purchased this year is even better than the earlier ones. Very smooth ride, but what I have always liked best is the responsiveness of the steering and acceleration and the really good excellent way it holds the road on turns and curves. My current Miata is my first retractable hardtop and I like the convenience. I was pleasantly surprised to find a bit more trunk space in this car over its predecessors. People have started conversations with me about the car in parking lots and so forth which is a very pleasant experience. Good on gas, and among all four of my Miatas I have needed almost no repairs.
It just makes me happy every time I drive it. Even better, almost every time I drive it people stop, look, and smile. I've heard "nice car!" so many times, but every single time it still makes me happy. What more can you ask but to have a car that makes both you and the people around you happy?
