When I heard the car had a 158 horse power four cylinder, I thought, GREAT, an under powered little car. BOY WAS I WRONG. I took it on a test drive and...WOW, this little car MOVES...! When you put you foot into the accelerator, this car POPS. There is no hesitation, it just gets up and goes. I love the power hard top and the Bose stereo is top notch, I just wish is had a volume control for when you drive with the top down, so the volume would increase and decrease with outside noise. Overall, this car is a 10, it handles well, brakes well, and I love the automatic/manual stick shift option. Well done Mazda!
- 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
I have had miatas since 1990 when they first came out. They handle BEAUTIFULLY, they are inexpensive compared to other cars, they look beautiful, they never need repairs - what's not to like? And if you think I'm exaggerating, check out Consumer Reports ratings. The Miata has been rated best in its class for years.
