1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata
|Excitment while driving, performance, sportiness, ride||Passenger seat: no height adjustment|
|Performance / economy trade off - they got it right!||Visibility . poor rear & side visibility at speed|
|Hard top convertible -top operates easily, insulates noise & temperature well||Trunk is too small / limited cargo space|
|Styling . great traditional roadster||Gas mileage, for a small car|
|Paddle shifters on steering wheel is a fantastic feature||Rough ride - but it is a low to ground vehicle|
|Style - zoom zoom, baby: it is fun.||Loose in higher speed turns - wider tires will help|
|Driving experience - handles great, corners well, for 4 cylinder engine it's quiet||Lumbar support is very poor & non adjustable|
|Inteiror - quality seats, well thought out design||Stereo should sound more immersive. it's too front oriented.|
|Vehicle exterior - great designed sports car||Totally impractical, but sports cars aren't supposed to be practical|
|Wanted sports car - this meets my desires||Noise - road and engine noise could be lower|
