WE COULD NOT HAVE GOT A BETTER CAR IF WE HAD BOUGHT A NEW ONE OFF THE SHOW ROOM FLOOR, IT WAS JUST WHAT WE WANTED IN EVERY WAY AND EVEN BETTER THAN WE EXPECTED.
A Fun Car to Drive
2007 Mazda MX-5-MiataDan Maloney - Honeoye Falls, NY01/16/2016
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.
Great little sports car
2014 Mazda MX-5-MiataDoug Williams - Chicago, IL12/05/2015
Fun to drive, good fuel economy, reliable. This is my second Miata, they make great commuter cars as well as fun weekend toys - they're reliable, the handling is great, and the look good. They are smaller than a typical sedan, so they don't have a lot of interior space or luggage space. Obviously, you should make sure you fit comfortably and can see out of it before buying. Similarly if you have to haul kids around, or a lot of parcels every day, then a two seat roadster might not be the right car for you.
Fuel economy is pretty good, I'm getting mid-20's to low 30's depending on how much town and open road driving I'm doing. It's not the highest mpg rating but it's pretty good for a sports car.
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.
