World Class Roadster by Racer X from NJ on 08/25/2012. Trim: 2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring Power Retractable Hardtop, Owned less than 1 year.

Pros: Excellent Brakes, Very precise steering and handling, Short shift throws and light clutch effort. Heated Dual Leather seats, Nice Bose radio with great speakers, Lightweight & Nimble on the read, Exhaust note is like music to the ears, Power Rectractable Hardtop (PRHT) that includes glass rear window with defroster and 1 button operation is amazing and definitely a head turner! Good power to weight ratio too!
Cons: To be 100% honest, it's hard to come up with any serious "Cons" about the MX-5....although it has a decent sized trunk for a 2 seat convertible, a little extra room would be nice. A little bump in HP or another MAZDASPEED (turbo) variant (like the one in 2005) would be nice to have again.
Overall review: This is a REAL sportscar with 20+ year heritage (the type that should NOT even be offered with a automatic transmission) and has proven itself on the racetrack and on the streets. People who have NEVER driven an MX-5 for some strange reason, want to put the MX-5 into the same category as your typical buyer for the VW Cabrio or Beetle (which are usually females). The MX-5 (unlike the VW's mentioned) are designed for the serious driving enthusiast and someone who KNOWS how to handle and drive a sportscar..plain and simple! My advice: skip the auto trans slushbox and cloth top and go straight for the 6 speed manual and PRHT and you have a top notch, year round driving machine!
