The Mazda MX-5 has been ranked the highest sports car in the 2011 J.D. Power vehicle ownership satisfaction survey published recently. It beats worthy opponents such as the Volkswagen Scirocco, Audi TT, Mercedes Benz CLK and SLK. This is not the first time that the Mazda MX-5 has been successful in the J.D. Power Survey. It even notched up a satisfaction rating of 82.4 percent, an increase on its last year’s score and thus securing a greater margin of victory over its rivals than in 2010.

“The MX-5 proves that sports cars don’t need to be sophisticated, luxurious or expensive to be fun-to-drive. Mazda’s MX-5 has been commended in the past and this year its margin of victory is even bigger than it was in 2010,” stated the official press release. “Today, the Mazda MX-5 remains unrivaled as a rewarding sportscar that can also be used for everyday motoring all year round,” said Peter Allibon, Sales Director, Mazda Motors UK.“The MX-5 soft-top continues to offer the purest, fun-to-drive thrills, while the Roadster Coupe’s folding hard top provides a more refined experience, with that same exhilarating drive. Its low running costs and legendary reliability means the MX-5 remains an extremely competitive proposition as hundreds of very satisfied owners confirm."

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
