very fun car to drive. handles the road like no other car i know or have ever owned. i owned my 2003 miata for 10 years until i decided it was time to just own 1 vehicle. since my truck was my everyday ride i recently sold my miata to carmax. the miata is engineered so simple without the frills you see in most cars today. just a well built car that will last years if you take care of it. my miata called for premium gas so i contacted mazda and they said it was safe to use regular but i wouldnt get the same performance. i didnt notice a difference as i opted for the cheaper gas. i do miss my miata and may eventually buy another one from carmax when the time is right.
- 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
This car helped me get my mojo back. Its sporty and fun. Great in the rain but haven't driven it in the snow yet. The thing I like best is that I can work on it myself. Mazda seems to have designed the car to be worked on by their owners. Moreover, there a whole world of after market parts, blogs forums and info available. I was able to buy original shop manuals which are invaluable.
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.
