    2002 Mazda MX-5 Miata - SE (M6)

    Pros: During cornering there is no sloppy give in the suspension. Quality looks.

    Cons: The car functions precisely as it was designed to.

    Advice: Have fun. Compare with Toyota Spyder and others. This is one fine auto.

    I have almost 20,000 miles on this car. It is a fine auto. My wife loves it. When she happens to have it coming home from work, the top is always down. It handles with ease. It traverses a corner in a playful manner. It makes driving fun. I have also driven it through almost two winters with no problems. I have put all season Toyo tires on it. These are high performance all season tires. My wife and I went on our first vacation without children in 18 years and we had a fine time. The trunk held a tent, sleeping bags, air matresses, clothes etc. Mileage was excellent- 35 plus miles per gallon. I am so pleased with the quality and class of this vehicle.

    2002 Mazda MX-5 Miata - LS (M5)

    Pros: six speed transmission, suspension package

    Cons: The cabin needs to be a bit more roomy

    Advice: Prepare to have alot of fun driving this great sports car

    I love this sports car . . this is my second Miata. I owned a 1999 new and really enjoyed it except for the cronic front wheel shimmy @ around 65 mph. When I saw the 2002 SE MX-5 in Yellow Mica .. . . I knew I had to have it. There is a big difference in comfort and the six speed is fantastic. We drove it up the west coast this fall and many people were unsure of the make of my Miata. I think they thought they were looking at a test car at first. Great on the corners and don't worry about hi revs of 6,000 rpm's . . it really likes it.

    2002 Mazda MX-5 Miata - SE (M6)

    Pros: handling and the dashboard

    Cons: Comfort level after a few hours

    Advice: buy it

    This car is amazing for the price. While other sports cars offer more horsepower and amenities, who needs them? I have taken turns at 30mph and the car sticks to the road like glue.This car gives a driving experience that makes the driver 'one with the road'.If you want anything less go buy a Buick!
