This is my second Miata. Not sure you can beat this little roadster for good ole fun on the road. My first Miata was a 1990....I really loved that car but Mazda has really done a fine job on this new design...more leg and head room, more powerful engine, more room in the trunk...and you can put the rag top down with one hand in 10 seconds! Check out what the experts say about this car's reliability and agility...and it's affordable!
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.
My other car is a Lincoln MKS. Unless I'm going on a long trip I always drive the Miata. I have a 2011 GT PRHT and I haven't had this much fun driving in years. The Miata is responsive to the accelerator, steering, and brakes and with the wind in my hair it always makes me feel like I am in my 20's again. I'd buy another Miata in a heart beat.
