Used 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata Touring for Sale
Reviews for 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata
Truly fun car
If you are looking for a fun, 2 seat convertible, then this is the car for you. Car and Driver, Motor Trend and Consumer Reports have always rated the MX-5/Miata as a best buy and one of the most fun cars to drive. While it may only have a 4 cylinder engine, it's very fast. And the car handles really well. The power retractable hard top means that you go from having a solid roof over your head to the wind blowing thru your hair in 12 seconds. Also the hard top means your car is more secure and no extra noise when the top is up.
My baby, a (Mazdaspeed 3), became a pain to shift in San Fran after my stroke. I looked at all the usual products such as Civic, Altima, Impreza, ect....and decided I only needed two seats. Shoot, 95% of the time I only need one. Being a loyal Mazda fan I bought a MX5 (Miata). WOW...this thing is spunky, even with the 6 speed auto. It's not Mazdaspeed 3 spunky, but on the freeway I get over 33 MPG (much better than the sticker says). My worst MPG was in city driving only and it was 23.5. A rack for the trunk-lid allowed my wife and I to take a week long trip to Tucson this year. Six months before the stroke I would have never thought of owning a car, (much less a Miata) with an automatic transmission. This car is responsive with the AT. My wife drives the Speed now, (I get behind the wheel now and then), but there is no doubt the Miata is a lot more fun to drive, and dropping the top is the greatest experience. This car is even great on my insurance. It's not for everyone but don't drive one if you really don't want a two seater. A test drive might convince you that you have to have it. Oh, and as for the five stars for comfort, for two people it is great. We found that out on the 1,500 mile round trip to Tucson.
Great for road trips, fun for grocery store runs
It's fun to drive and though it's small (two seats), two people can easily fit duffle bags with clothes etc for ten days into the trunk. I love the retractable hard top (goes up and down in seconds) and the Bose audio system, as well.
