Tons of fun to drive

Haven't had the car long but I loved it as soon as we pulled off the lot for the test drive... The car definitely isn't practical or particularly comfortable but that isn't the point of a miata... I got a manual transmission club with the BBS/Brembo/Recaro package so you can feel everything on the road, which is the way it should be in a car like this... For having electric power steering the feedback from the steering wheel is great, it is tuned so well that it feels like a hydraulic system... The shifter is still as crisp and mechanical feeling as it was in the older Miatas (if it's not broke, don't fix it) and is extremely satisfying to run it thru the gears... There is enough torque to cruise in 6th gear at 35 mph, and at anything above maybe 1700 rpm you have enough power to pass without downshifting (if you're not trying to pass too quickly) and it makes good noises and pulls pretty good at higher RPM... Car is rated for 35 mpg highway but I have babied it and got pretty close to 40 while having to stop at a few lights and driving with the top down... If I were only on the highway and tried I could easily get better than 40 with the top up... Would not recommend one as your only car unless you never take road trips and never buy more than a couple bags of groceries at a time (my other car is a Crown Vic so I'm covered for comfort and grocery getting), but if you are looking for a second car or can live with the downsides of a tiny convertible as your only vehicle then I can't recommend the ND enough... I'm smiling like an idiot every time I get in it... Can't speak to reliability yet as mine has less than 1000 miles on it, but I have heard it has forged pistons, rods and crankshaft I would imagine at least the bottom end of the engine will be bulletproof...

I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES

Wife tired of hearing "I love this car."

Handling is awesome, acceleration is spirited, looks great, super reliable, interior looks good. Seats are so-so, need to angle seat up some and higher bolsters would be nice. Lots of up-gradable stuff out there, easy to work on, top goes up/down in less than 2 seconds. thimble sized trunk holds a surprising amount of stuff. People look at you funny when you keep pulling stuff out. EVERY time I drive it, I tell my wife how much I love this car. Its just plain old fun. Ihave the CLUB manual shift version BTW. Highly recommend, but if I had to do it over again I would get the club with the brembo brakes and recarro seats, but would stay with the manual transmission for sure!

I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES

best car I've ever purchase.

Great design, paint color, tires and wheels, 6 speed tranny, engine, safety, stereo, seats, Driving position, and overall just a great improvement from my 2006 miata.
