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?
I bought my Miata as a commuter car. I wanted something safe, cost-effective, yet NOT one of those boring egg-shaped gas-savers. Keep in mind that my other car is a 2004 Range Rover so the Miata has stiff competition on my review. The car is very reliable, and so cheap to buy and run. It's saving me a lot of money on gas and handles my daily 3-hour commute (round trip) with no problem. Plus, if I ever need to sell the car, there's a ready market of Miata afficianados. I definitely recommend this car if you're looking for a fun, yet practical car.
- Beautiful styling outside and in
- Awesome hard-top that doesn't take away any of the (already limited) space
- This car sticks to the road like crazy. Driving it on switchbacks in Malibu and in the San Gabriel Mountains was a complete blast.
- The only affordable and reliable (check Consumer Reports) convertible on the market
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.
