Pros It's a Miata, Nuf said.
Cons Minor tech tweaks
Summary Bought the car shown about a month ago. My 4th Miata. Only one thing more fun than twisties in my Miata, twisties in my Miata with tunes. Unfortunately, I need cables to do it. Fix that and it's near perfect. True, in the twisties, don't need much tech. But on the highway to and from work, or stuck in traffic, handsfree is nice. Also, top down is the whole point, so the heated seats are a blessing on cold mornings. Who wants to bundle up to get to work. My minor complaints:
1) It's 2012, full bluetooth please.
2) For 50 cents they could add automatic headlights. With the keyless entry, you must remember to turn everything else off or it beeps loudly at you. Now we play the "why is it beeping this time" game.
3) move the PRHT controls to the top of the windscreen
4) Put in a 20 minute power cutoff. We drained the tiny little battery on the second day.
Don't need nav. Just find a small road and take it. If you get lost, you will have to backtrack, which means more driving fun...
Pros I hate to repeat all comments above, but I do agree that the Miata (I started in 1989, changed to turbocharged Miata in 2004) is made for pure driving experience. Bluetooth, GPS, and other audio/visual tech products would ruin the fun.
Cons Nothing concerns me except for the change in the stick. No need to change it.
Summary More fun, less technology is right for the Miata.
Pros Fun, fun, fun!!!
Lack of all the hi-tech toys
Did I say fun & reliable
Cons None. A very well built car.
Summary This is a driver's car, totally fun, safe, efficient and reliable. It's based on the original MG style of car. Tech toys simple add distractions. If this car had them and you used them, you would kill yourself. I want to drive, not play with tech toys. Mine is a 2008. Don't change a classic car. Oh, the trunk, my wife and I just traveled to Florida and back from Tennessee. The trunk held everything we needed without waste. This is truly a great sports car and it doesn't need anymore tech toys than what it already has (e.g., a radio, 6 CD player, heater/AC and rearview mirrow). Put the top down and have some fun . . . !!!
