It's obvious everyone at 120 E Liberty St. has a love for the Miata. Over the years, it's proven to be an affordable, great handling, great looking, and great performing sports car, what's not to love?
As Zenlea noted, the brisk October weather may not be the best way to fully enjoy what the MX-5 has to offer, but it made for some interesting looks from other motorists. Our test car's competition yellow is similar in color to that of most construction equipment. The main difference being, the MX-5 doesn't want to stay on one side of the orange barrels, it wants to slalom them.
Disengaging traction control and electronic stability control let the little Mazda float its rear end around almost any turn with a blip of the gas; thanks in part to the optional limited-slip differential. Of course, a huge bonus to this sports car is that when you lighten up on the throttle, you can achieve 28 mpg highway.
