2011 Mazda MX5 SE 1.8 petrol from UK and Ireland
Great fun as a second car for the weekend
CD player has stopped working.
Idle and tensioner pulleys became noisy around 2000 RPM; self replaced, an easy job.
The 1.8 engine feels underpowered, but can be taken to high RPM. Handling is very good, great with the (hardtop) roof down.
Fitted Continental Contact Premium 2 tyres - not sure if that was the best choice.
Apart from the CD player fault and noisy pulleys - has been totally reliable.
Would consider buying another, but only with a 2 litre engine.
Stormy blue pearlescent paint looks good, but chips very easily.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
