2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata
Fun little convertible, perfect for sun seeking travelers...
Cruise around town or up and down the coast in comfort with heated seats and leather interior.
6-spd manual transmission! Please make sure you know how to drive a stick before booking!
I am also frequently in the Monterey area. Pick-up/Drop-off in Monterey/Carmel available with advanced notice!
Shortly after booking, please send me a note confirming that (1) you know how to operate a manual transmission, (2) you are aware the car only has two seats, (3) you are aware that the car has limited trunk space. This serves to prevent unpleasant surprises for all of us when you try to get in the car at the airport with three people and a pile of luggage!
Delivery available with advance notice. For airport delivery/pickup, please note this car is not large and the trunk is very small. Unless you are an extremely light packer, your stuff will likely not fit. Delivery to your hotel is preferred.
No pets. No smoking. 91 Octane fuel only.
Does the car have a manual transmission?
Yes. Please know how to drive a stick before picking the car up. Please also send me a note shortly after booking confirming you understand the car has a manual transmission and that you are proficient in the use of a manual transmission.
Is the top easy to operate?
Extremely easy. Once I show you how it is done, you should be able to operate it one handed in about 5 seconds without getting up.
Will I fit in the car?
I don't know. I am 5-10 and 220lbs and fit comfortably for long trips. My brother is 6-4 and about 220lbs also. He fits, but not comfortably for long trips. Feel free to ask me if you have any special considerations.
Will my luggage/child/third passenger/etc fit?
If you have to ask, probably not. The car only has two seats and a small trunk. One person and a reasonable amount of luggage should be fine. Two people who are light packers should also be fine. I don't recommend using car seats. My five year old with a booster seat fits in a pinch, but it doesn't seem particularly safe. For reference, this car has a 4.5 cubic foot trunk. A Honda Civic has about 15 cubic feet of trunk space. If you can't take it on the plane as a "carry-on" it likely won't fit in the trunk.

Olivier went above and beyond to get the vehicle to us at the time we needed. It was an absolutely wonderful car, and I'm seriously considering purchasing one after renting it for just a few days. 10/10 would rent again!
