What's the used Mazda MX-5 sports like?

This is a good-looking two-seat sportster. It has a front-engine, rear-drive chassis that delivers plenty of grip and steering with precise feel. Oh, and fun - by the bucket-load!

True, the 99bhp 1.6 is not quick enough for something most people would call a sports car, but the 124bhp 1.8 engine is a belter. And, both are all the more exciting thanks to the superb fast-shifting gearbox and direct clutch.
