2003 Mazda Miata Shinsen Convertible 2-door 1.8l on 2040-cars
Portales, New Mexico, United States
|I'm currently selling my 2003 Mazda Miata (limited edition) Shinsen.
This car is very mechanically sound. I have taken it on road trips and never had any issues whatsoever. It gets great gas mileage, and it is honestly one of the funnest cars I have ever gotten to drive. This thing handles beautifully; I had it professionally inspected about 5,000 miles ago and the mechanic told me the brakes looked like they were brand new.
Having a little convertible like this is awesome during the summer, and it really isn't bad during the colder months. The AC and heat both work very well. It comes with a single disk CD player, black leather seat covers, power windows, power door locks and cruise control.
Unfortunately the paint on the hood is fairly faded from the sun (It sat in a lot for a long time before I got it) and It has various scratches and dings in the paint due to it being my daily driver, but it is still a very reliable car; in fact it's not uncommon to find people driving this model with upward of 200,000 miles on the odometer.
If you are interested I can meet you somewhere in Portales so you can see the car yourself.

This past September we reported on Top Gear's destruction of the Mazda Furai, one of the finest concept cars to ever grace an auto show stage. It turns out that the Furai, which was burned nearly beyond recognition at the hands of the British magazine, was actually destroyed back in 2008, and that the entire thing had been covered up for five long years.

Now, a few months after publishing that heart-wrenching composite of a half-baked Furai (shown above), the lads at TG have published their account of just what resulted in a priceless concept car being transformed into a smoking hulk on a Suffolk runway. Click over to read the full story about just what happened, along with pictures of the Furai before, during and after the inferno.
Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Suzuki and Daihatsu have announced an alliance that will see a push to improve fuel economy from both gas-powered and diesel-powered engines by as much as 30 percent before the end of the decade.

The newly assembled Research Association of Automotive Internal Combustion Engines put the roughly $20-million project together, with the Japanese government committing to half the cost while the eight manufacturers will chip in the rest.
According to Automotive News, the automakers will team up and share basic research on internal-combustion engines in a bid to cut costs. Eventually, the results of the research will find its way into a production vehicle, although it's unclear just when we'll see the fruits of this partnership on the road.
It's hard not to be smitten with the 2014 Mazda3; after all, just look at it. But beyond its slick lines, we found the new compact hatch to be a pretty remarkable steer, offering up good levels of comfort and refinement, not to mention functionality and engagement. Now, there's more reason to like the 2014 Mazda3, as we've just learned that the car will officially be rated at 30 miles per gallon city and 41 mpg highway.
That 30/41 rating is for the Mazda3 sedan fitted with the 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G inline four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. Opting for the manual transmission retains the 41-mpg highway number, but drops the city digits to 29. Hatchback models with the 2.0-liter engine achieve 29/40 mpg with the manual 'box and 30/40 with the automatic.
Mazda also offers a larger 2.5-liter inline-four in the 3, and while a six-speed automatic will be the only transmission available with this engine at launch, the automaker has confirmed that a manual is coming shortly. With the 6AT and 2.5, the Mazda3 sedan is rated at 28/39 mpg, or 29/40 with the company's i-Eloop regenerative braking system. Hatchback models shrink those numbers to 28/37 and 29/39 mpg, with and without i-Eloop, respectively.
