I traded my beloved 2006 MX-5 for this iTouring because of some un-merited police activity. We set out on a trip from Iowa to South Carolina a couple of weeks after the trade. I was most impressed by the quietness of the interior, the handling, and gas mileage-frequently in the mid 38 MPG range. The one complaint is that the driver's seat-at least, lacks thigh support. After the first day, my upper legs hurt so badly I could hardly walk. I am not tall-5-11, typically had the seat clear back and elevated. I've never experienced this problem before and didn't find any other posts using the search feature. I am very pleased with the car and would not notice this on most shorter trips.
