2007 Mazda MX-5 MIATA User Reviews
- $10,155 - $11,878
- No trim specified for this review
- Turns on a dime, stops on a dime, torquey all the time.
- Sometimes it rains.
I absolutely love this car! This is a second car for me, and I only drive it when the weather is nice. After 4,000 miles, it still puts a grin on my face every time I drive it. The steering is very communicative and responsive, and the sport suspension telegraphs every blip in the road, but with no harshness. The wide torque band and short gearing keep the accelerator responsive in every gear. This is definitely not a car for cruising and talking on the phone. It's a drivers car that keeps you engaged and entertained all the time. This car always wants to play! It makes me want to race it every time I get behind the wheel. Anyone who orders this car with an Automatic transmission simply doesn't get it.
I got the car fully loaded with the Bose audio, smart key, 6 spd manual, Bose stereo, Sirius, black leather, 17" wheels and sport suspension in Galaxy Gray. I love the smart key and the heated seats and tri-directional vents keep me cozy down to about 35 degrees with the top down =). The Bose audio is nice, but doesn't compare to the thumping Shaker 1000W stereo that was in the Mustang I traded in. I was a bit disappointed that I couldn't get both Sirius and the iPod module, but honestly I don't need to be fiddling around with the iPod in the car anyway. I would have liked the Sirius antenna to be better integrated though.
I've never owned a convertible before, and the power retractable hardtop is what hooked me. With no compromise in trunk space, not a lot of added weight, and the added security, I was sold. I'm a Miata owner for life.
