If they are not driving: it is a blast to drive.

Love that it is a blast to drive. It is cute. I get compliments all the time and make "miata friends" in parking lots/ on the road. Convertible. Compact. Low gas usage.... Dislike that it is a little limited in heavy rain (leaky roof), does not hold much in the trunk, and I can only take one passenger. Would be awesome if the roof was replaced to not leak/be easier to lower/raise..

MX-5 Miata short review..

The MX-5 is a well-performing, sporty vehicle with a convertible drop top. The vehicle is comfortable, though only a 2-seater, and especially fun to drive in warm, sunny weather. Potential issues include bad traction on snow due to front-wheel drive.

- Ethan C

It is very reliable and easy to drive, has a ton of trunk space as well.

It performs well and is definitely very reliable. Mine has low miles even though it is 13 years old and it still runs like a dream. It is easy to have it serviced and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap, reliable car.
