2000 Mazda MX5 LR 1.8


Comfortable, stylish plus and superb road holding


Door let in a lot of water one rainy day.

Clutch part needed replacing because of 1st gear shudder.

Coil and plugs replaced when car would not restart when warm.

General Comments:

Now that I have had my free repairs it is going well.

The clutch worried me during first month, but the dealer was great and fixed clutch.

The NR is a LTD edition of 500 here in Japan. Wooden steering wheel, leather seats, plum color, cream roof.

It has been well looked after by 2 previous Japanese owners; I am British.

It is all I wanted in my first sports car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
