Nice. We had to have something to carry our 4 dogs in, plus easy transport for bikes if we want to ride somewhere away from the campsite, hence the Element.

I've owned three Miatas and all were a hoot. They are pretty much bullet proof. Before our very recent move, I drove a Grand Cherokee, an RX-8 and a 2001 Miata SE. For my new car, I chose something with the best bits of the other cars, the Fiesta ST. It has the size of the Miata, handles like the Miata and RX -8 and has much of the utility of the Grand Cherokee.

Unfortunately, I found out that it's not towable and had to buy a dolly. Fiestas are towable, except the ST. Had I known, I would still go with this car. The dolly isn't very convenient, but the car is loaded with enough fun to make up for it.

Your NA series is much like my neighbor's. That is a great color combination. The tan leather and blue metallic paint looks excellent. I would snap up that car in a heartbeat if I was in the market. I have never owned an NA car, but I'very heard they're the purest version. Congratulations on your choice.

I just re-read your post and realized that you were not talking about the Miata, but if your Miata was an automatic, you are correct it is NOT towable.

If your Miata was a Manual Transmission, it was DEFINITELY flat towable.

I towed a 2000 5-speed for 35,000 miles and have now towed a 2010 and a 2012 6 speeds a total of 16,000 miles.

If you get another Miata, feel free to contact me for information on how to do it.

Tim

Right, they were manuals, but I never towed them. I know they are towable. The ST is an odd case where Fiestas are generally towable, the ST isn't. It also doesn't say it in the manual. I discovered this after I bought the car.
