  • Nice.... - 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata
    By -

    Great car and noticeable improvement over 2013 GT in ride, comfort, interior, economy, electronics and safety. Bose sound system has just enough extra oomph to make it enjoyable over the old Bose system which lacked a dedicated sub-woofer.

  • WOW! This is fun to drive! - 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata
    By -

    This is fun to drive. I'm not sure I would be comfortable driving on a long road trip but the vehicle is fun driving around town. I find myself accelerating into turns and braking hard. The performance is unbelievable. This is a homerun and the price is reasonable.

  • Beautiful! - 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata
    By -

    To me, the most obvious and appealing aspect of this car is its looks. Simply put, it is downright beautiful. It has the flowing lines, sculpted body panels, and the agressive look of a very high end exotic sports car. A buyer could be happy buying the vehicle based on looks alone. Fortunately, unlike some beauties that I have owned, ( or been married to), this car's qualities are much more than skin deep. I have the GT model, and the ride is a good balance between outstanding handling and a reasonably smooth ride. I have had it on my favorite back roads, and I can see why the MX-5 has such a loyal and enthusiastic following. The 50/ 50 weight distribution is immediately evident as is the light weight along with great suspension engineering. It is a true driver's car that will put a smile on your face. Buy it for looks, buy it for the great road vehicle that it is. Either way, you will be pleased.

  • Motoring, indeed. Top down 2 seater with style! - 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata
    By -

    If you wanted a comfortable roadster, with great road feel, snappy handling, this is it. I am a pretty hard convertible buyer to please, I've owned a 1994 Mercury Capri (which was a stylish 40mpg fun car), a 2005 supercharged Mini Cooper S Convertible with the John Cooper Works package (hard to beat performance), and I also had a 1971 Lemans Sport convertible (classic american muscle). A co-worker brought in his 2016 black Miata Sport into work. This being his 2nd Miata (he had the NC prior) he asked, no, begged me to drive his new 2016 Miata Sport. OK, I'll admit it, I was like how could 155hp be FUN after all my MINI had 207hp and weighed in only slightly more than this! Ok, I was wrong, dead wrong. I bought my white 2016 last week. This car is a BLAST. Its not techy (although the bluetooth is flawless). Every other control is just RIGHT. Controls are non-distracting, easy to use without looking (dials with tactile feel and easy to use). But you are looking at this car for the driving experience, and for that it's just flawless. Do yourself a favor, drive one. Stop reading reviews, and just drive it.

  • Grant Tourer it aint - 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata
    By -

    My prior soft top experience was with my TR8. The Miata GT is certainly more reliable, has more creature comforts, and handles better, but Grand Tourer it aint. Eight hours on the freeway in 100+ weather is not so good, I got leg cramps after 3 hours and the road noise even with the top up precluded conversation. Lack of handy cockpit storage and decent drink holders is a problem on long trips with two people, as is the lack of trunk space. That said, blasting along Angeles Crest in the early morning, or anywhere else, is guaranteed to get me smiling. I bought this car for fun not convenience, and it delivers. Follow-up = still great fun to drive locally. I especially like the 3 second top up or down. Hit a deer but it was still drivable, so pretty stout as well! Repair cost wasn't too bad.

  • New MX-5 Miata 2016, great car inside out. - 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata
    By -

    It has been a day after I purchased 2016 MX-5 Sports manual. Driving had never been this much fun. Engine note, gear shift, acceleration , breaking, interior space is great. I am 6'2'' and I still have 2 inches above my head with roof down. I like small storage spaces here and there. Interior craftsmanship is extraordinary. As a driver, it requires extra efforts to restrain yourself from having too much fun, unless you don't mind the cost of frequent tire and break change.
