    2009 Mazda MX-5 MIATA

    Fun fun fun.

    Pros: Handling and road feel.

    Cons: Needs more horsepower.

    You only buy this car is you are looking for some fun, not practicality. The handling and feel is great. You feel like you are connected to the car and road, so much so that even when you are going 45mph you feel like you are flying at 60mph. This is cheap fun and will get you 75-80 percent of what you would expect with a high-priced sports car, minus speed. Suspension is adequate for most people but parts are cheap enough for enthusiasts to mod to hearts content. If you haven't driven a 2500 pound car like this, you will be in for a surprise, and hopefully leave with a smile.
