    2004 Mazda MX-5 Miata

    I LOVE this little car!!!

    Pros: 1)Overall looks, shape, bodystyle. 2)Sound of the engine. 3)Feeling I get when I drive it.

    Cons: 1)Sound of the horn. 2)That it took me so long to get one.

    I see people driving convertibles that cost far more than what I paid for my MX-5 Miata, but I know in my heart its impossible for them to derive any more joy and pleasure out of their expensive vehicles than I get out of mine.

    2004 Mazda MX-5 Miata - Cloth (M5)

    Pros: handling

    Cons: grueling, punishing ride

    Advice: Perhaps the Miata ain't what it used to be.

    I'm wondering whether my three day old Miata is a lemon. The AC has failed after 300 miles. Highway driving at 70 mph and above is nothing short of brutal. The car shakes violently. Conversation is not possible, and it is difficult to hear the radio. I'm hoping some expert here will give me advice.
