Fun car to drive but not for everyone

by Don34 from Swansboro,NC | March 01, 2020

This is a great sport car and is a sport car and not a commuter car. If you enjoy the sport car features, then you can most likely drive it every day. It has limited room for carrying things. The seat are sporty and hugs your body in the car. If you are tall, I’m 6 ft, it is a little tight compared to my Tahoe. I love the car because it is truly a sport car and fun to drive on curvy country roads. I don’t know if I would want it as a daily commuter car but for a recently retired guy, I think it’s a great sport car for the price.

The Mx-5 RF is a dream to drive.

I guess I fit the target demographic -- close to retirement guy living in Sunny Florida -- where it seems that every other car is a rag top. My last vehicle was an Infiniti G37X with a V6 and a ton of attitude. It was great on the highway but a royal pain in every other situation. From terrible telematics to awful MPG's I couldn't wait to get rid of that package of too much automobile -- and get myself a fun car that I would look forward to driving. The RF is a dream to drive. It brings smile to my face just starting it up and pulling out of my driveway. Compared to my G37X which roared onto a highway, the MX5 accelerates in a wonderful controlled manner -- when you floor the car you don't feel like the car is going to fly off the road. Yes, it is a noisy with the top down. Yes, the trunk is a joke. Yes, just about every other driver (including troopers) start up conversations to learn what I am driving and are surprised to hear it is a Mazda Miata. I test drove the soft top and was ready to buy one but then I saw the RF at launch. Love at first sight. I was less concerned about the soft top in the Florida sun than I was parking a soft top anywhere outside my garage. The fixed top offers a little more security when there are idiots looking to cause trouble lurking around a parking lot. The audio system is awesome. I love cranking up some Boston or Chicago and heading for A1A. I drove a Mazda 3 for 10 years and loved it. Then I was seduced by the "luxury" of Infiniti and a rude awakening with the reality of the car, the dealer, and the brand. Happy to be back behind the wheel of a Mazda. Because Mazda makes great cars.

Remarkable little car

I came out of a 2012 BMW 128i...which I really liked. This car is sooooooooooooooo much fun. Well built, sporty, responsive, and, did I mention fun!
