2003 Mazda MX5 Indiana 1.8 petrol from UK and Ireland
Gorgeous looking fun car, that will make you smile when behind the wheel or looking at it
I had to replace the original wheels, as they had bad rust.
This car looks the part, either with the hard top on or the soft top down; the Vin Rouge colour, contrasted with the cream leather, makes it look very refined.
The drive compared to my old MR2 is also more refined, with better storage, better comfort and road holding. The MR2 was more nippy and probably more fun, but the MX5 has won my heart, and every second behind the wheel is met with a huge smile.
Fuel costs are what I expected; apart from the original wheels being replaced, it has proven very reliable.
The tonneau cover for some reason will not remain fixed over 60 MPH, but not a biggie.
I would not think twice about buying another, but as I feel the Indiana is the nicest one they made, I guess any other would be second best.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
