Best little convertible ever!

My 2001 Miata MX-5 ls is beautiful, and I absolutely love it! Although it is 17 years old, a lot of people think it is new. That is because I have taken really great care of it, to say the least. And with its super smooth manual 6-speed transmission, it delivers excellent performance, and it is a blast to drive. I especially love driving it with the top down at night. The only problem I have had with it is a window leak on the passenger side. It was a bit tricky to fix, but thankfully, it is all good now.

The convertible experience.

Driving a miata is a lifestyle. No one understands how driving a convertible connects you to people. Suddenly people want to talk to you, ask you questions, invite you to parties... In traffic! While the miata is more of a summer vehicle since it is rear wheel drive. There is not a lot of room & the trunk is small. It is mostly meant to be a fun extra car. It is been very dependable & had little repairs required!

Pros and cons of my Miata.

My Miata is sporty and fun, it has a spare tire which has proven most helpful when I had a flat. The parts are inexpensive compared to my previous Passat. The trunk is small and the engine runs a bit loud, that takes some getting used to. Overall it is my favorite car to date.
