Get The Power!

The Mazda MX-5 has been named ‘Best Sports car’ in the highly-regarded 2010 JD Power vehicle ownership satisfaction survey published recently. The survey saw the participation of more than 17,000 car owners across the UK. Owners of Mazda’s iconic two-seater sports car gave their cars top-scores for appearance, exterior and interior quality, mechanical reliability, performance, running costs and dealer service. The Mazda MX-5 scored a satisfaction rating of 82.3%, beating the Mercedes-Benz SLK, VW Eos and Audi TT, amongst other rivals, to claim the ‘Best-in-Class’ honours. One feature that owners were particularly pleased with was the car’s soft-top, which was praised for its quality and reliability.
The car is also a previous winner of the JD Power award.Reporting this year’s survey results WhatCar? magazine said: “If there is one car that always does well in the sports category, it’s the MX-5. It has a trophy cabinet full of JD Power awards and now adds this year’s title, too.”

Mark Cameron, sales director, Mazda UK, said: “Today, the Mazda MX-5 remains unrivalled as a rewarding sports car that can also be used for everyday motoring all year round. The MX-5 soft-top continues to offer the purest, fun-to-drive thrills, while the Roadster Coupe adds to those thrills with an even more premium experience, together with that same exhilarating drive. With its low running costs and legendary reliability, the MX-5 remains an extremely competitive proposition as hundreds of satisfied owners confirm.”
