Vehicle Description

This 2002 Mazda Miata Special Edition is serious cruising fun for very little cash. And since this comes compete with A/C, automatic transmission, power windows, and a cool color combo, you realize you still get a lot of roadster for your money.


When you see a complete car like this for such an affordable price, you always are asking, "What's the catch?" Well, in this case, the only catch is that the market hasn't caught up to these yet. The factory Titanium Gray Metallic was one of two colors for these Special Edition cars. They only made 1,491 in this color, and we imagine you'll find it far more tasteful than the yellow ones. The SE cars are likely to hold their value because they were an expensive option when new, and so they are a rarity today. So when this one retains its fun cruiser attitude and appearance, it tells us it has lived the right kind of life so far. It has the svelte proportions that make these a spiritual successor to the best Europe had to offer. The body is precision straight, just how the Japanese made it, and there's even a bit of added flair with the factory 16-inch alloys. In fact, the color of the paint makes for the perfect midpoint between the brighter silver of the wheels and the black folding roof - creating nicely coordinated total package.


The saddle tan leather with black accenting has a timeless appeal. So this special edition feels like an extra reminder that the Miata picked up the torch from the tradition of European roadsters. And just in case the European-like feel wasn't already there enough, you also have a great Nardi sports steering wheel. Beyond that, the full gauge package looks fantastic with white faces and a touch of chrome around the speedo and tach. They were built around the driver, and so you soon realized that every feature you could want is right at your fingertips. This includes power windows, power locks, and a sweet-sounding AM/FM/CD/cassette stereo system by the masters at Bose. There's even modern safety with dual airbags. But as a true driver's roadster your favorite moments will always be with the top down, and so it's great to stay comfortable while open to the world thanks to the cold-blowing air conditioning.


Under the hood is a highly original package that's believed to be original to this special edition car. Mazda hit a home run with the Miata by combining the European driving experience with one of its speedy and hardy engines. The 16-valve, 1.8-liter DOHC fuel-injected motor was precision engineered to be rev-happy and sound great doing it. The sport-tuned suspension and four-wheel disc brakes are part of a harmonious package that makes the car feel like an extension of you as it instantly reacts to the road. But more than just great for a quick backroad trip, this one has been loaded to make sure you're comfortable no matter the distance. That's thanks to features like power steering, cruise control, and the automatic transmission w/overdrive.


Complete with owner's manual, rarity and fun doesn't have to be reserved for the expensive cars, and this Miata proves it with every mile. So hurry up, because the next weekend road trip is coming up quickly. Call today!!!
