    2010 Mazda MX-5 MIATA

    Best sports car for the money!

    Pros: The build quality, the fit and finish, just perfect.

    Cons: No power seat on drivers side.

    As a used car dealer, I've sold 136 Miata MX5's. Not one came back for a dimes worth of warranty work! It is the best sports car you'll ever own, period. It handles perfectly, gets 30 mpg, has more than enough power and looks sensational. Easy to service, inexpensive to own, and the build quality is second to none. Perhaps one of the finest cars made in the world. Makes a smile come to your face everytime you run it through the gears. I highly recommend it if you want a bulletproof sports car that has high quality build aspects, and never breaks.

    1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata

    I love my car, honest:)

    Pros: It is so responsive, and a joy to drive. Plus people smile when they see it:)

    Cons: It is really low to the ground, and small, and has no back seat, and it is not exactly practical to own in Wisconsin, but the first nice day, when you can drive it around with the top down, well, it is cheap bliss:)

    Okay, so I am a very non-confident driver, and have never been 'into' cars. But a bunch of years ago, so long ago I forget when, we bought a used 1990 Miata, from a local dealership. It still runs great, and looks great, but most of all, it drives great, and will make you feel at least 20 years younger:) Must be the easiest car in the world to drive. Your wish is the Miata's command.

    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.

    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.
