My partner has a Mx-5, the 1.8i version. It is in British racing green & is a 1996 model so we have the 'pop-up' headlights, a feature which gives the car its individuality. Due to safety concerns, these are not featured on new models which is a shame. We have had the car for 2 1/2 years. ... Read review

Dependable, affordable and FUN!

AdvantagesDriver appeal, affordable, classic...and fun

DisadvantagesNone

"f you enjoy the open air and real driving, then the MX-5 is for you. This car is reliable, has the looks, delivers rewarding driving experiences and is packaged in a simple yet classic style. It really does have classic status, being introduced in 1989, the shape is hardly changed from then and most people will instantly recognise one. This car provoked the return of other 2 seater roadster models from MG and Fiat (the MGF and Barchetta). My car is ..." Read review

I actually travelled 100 miles up to ..." Read review

Mazda's MX5: The worlds best selling sports car

Advantagesfun, stylish, easy to drive, convertible

Disadvantagesfuel consumption around town, road noise on the motorway

"...a full service history with Mazda and had been cared for by the Lotus garage that had taken the car in as a part exchange. The car did require the big service at 60,000 miles (includes the cam belt change) which was carried out by MKG3000 Mazda of Twickenham for the reasonable cost of £390. Around town the car deals with bumps very well with only large pot holes sending a shimmy through the chassis. Road noise around town is also very acceptable ..." Read review

Great to drive and practical too.

AdvantagesBrilliant fun to Drive and looks great!

DisadvantagesHaving only two seats occassionally means passengers can miss out.

"The Mazda MX5 was my final choice of purchase after being given some money recently. I was looking for something fun and sporty, but originally looked at four seater options such as the Astra Coupe and VW Golf. After reading good magazine reviews, I decided to test drive the MX5 - I was not disappointed. The low chassis hugs the road and the steering is responsive. The 1.6 is more than capable in the lower gears and the tight gearbox makes it ..." Read review
