Description:
I've got an itch... and the only cure is a convertible...

...so, my dad has put the worm in my ear... I finally have a good paying job, and my Mazda2 ain't getting any younger... I *may* go take a look at a Miata retractable hardtop in the near future, just to see what it's like... I dunno... who knows what my reaction will be...

#20, I have to take into account that I drive a parent around that has limited mobility... too low, and they can't get out of it easily... plus, I need room for a collapsible wheelchair... it *almost* fit in the Miata's trunk... for want of an extra inch on the opening.

#21, I don't think the Eos is a good match then. The trunk is very small with the roof down. I know it sounds odd, but what about a Camaro? :/

#22, Last time my uncle visited, he had rented a Camaro convertible... I wasn't impressed. (This is the same uncle that in years past had rented a Boxster and a Panamera)

Mustang convertible, duh. :P

If you're looking for something nice, maybe a used Infiniti G37/Q60 convertible or Lexus IS250C?

#24, I will not buy a car older than the one I already have, nor will I buy one with more than half the mileage of the Mazda2... I'm only considering another car because the Mazda is starting to show its age.

Any "luxury" brand convertible would either be too expensive or two too "used"...

...and, no, not going to consider a Mustang... my driveway has enough cracks in it as it is.

#26, I guess that's been my biggest failing as a car fanatic... I am a mechanical idiot. I couldn't properly "wrench" on a car to save my life... if something goes wrong, I have to get a professional mechanic involved.

#27, for me, it depends on the vehicle. As a whole, I agree. I know *how* to do some minor stuff, but my fine motor skills aren't very good. :/

Sounds to me like the car you need to replace the Mazda is a lower-mileage clone of the Mazda, or suck it up and fix the one you have. :/

#29, It's not that there's anything wrong with the Mazda right now... it's just starting to feel... tired. ...and starting to get a fair amount of squeaks and rattles in the interior.

#30, If I'm going to go through the hassle of buying a new[er] car, it'll have to be an upgrade... in terms of style, "fun", and/or power...

Not sure what your price range is, but you could possibly find a used 370Z convertible for $20,000 or thereabouts. Suitably sporty (high-performance even) and a bit bigger than a Miata.

#34, but how is it getting wheelchair in and out?

As far as practicality is concerned, and living with a VQ35 engine at more than 80k miles, I'd say... well, be careful. The 370Zs are smaller than a Miata inside, at least to me. I'd wager a Focus or perhaps a Mazda3 would be a good bet. Maybe even a Chevrolet Cruze, in RS trim.

Also: here's your chance to get a Mazda5 or even a C-Max. Mazda5 will realistically get about 26 or so MPG combined, whereas the C-Max manages to get above 30 even with a heavy foot. Be careful about entering and exiting parking lots, though.

No, no minivan. Hell, my considering the Eos was pushing it... another restriction is the car needs to be narrow enough so I can still fit the bike next to it in the garage.

#39, Yes, I've always wanted a Cobalt SS with no bodywork and one less wheel.
