Default My BF hates my miata

Since i got my miata she started to hate it. She even wrote me a note with 10 reason why she hates it.

Here how it goes, word to word.

1.It is uncomfortable- the seats suck, it is a stiff, bumpy ride and i am too low to the ground.

2. You drive it like a race car

3. It is loud and stinks

4. it breaks down often

5. I hate convertibles

6. I hate sun on me and wind blowing my hair

7. With top on it is still hot as ****

8. I might as well drive a toy barbie car, because it would be, just as comfortable and same size.

9. It has no air bags and is unsafe

10. It stinks inside like an old car.



So yeah, not sure what to do here.

She absolutely hates it. However she hates big cars too. She loves Mini coopers and 2 door golfs.

I even converted the car to e85 to mostly cut down on the stink, she said its better but she still hates it.

Any suggestions?

Why would you care what your GIRLFRIEND thinks? Dump her, she's not the one or tell her to drive her own damn car.

LOL, i need to clarify something. She is actually my wife. Just used to calling her my GF its easier, lol. So yeah, too much trouble to go through divorce.

I did take her for a fun drive, almost spun out and she started to cry and i had a really big bruise on my shoulder because she kept punching me until we got home.

Perhaps you should take your girlfriend out for the rides instead of your wife.

Well that's a different story. My wife dosen't like my car either, so the easy solution is to just keep her out of it. She has her own car.

That's exactly what I do. My wife doesn't even mind the Miata, but she has still only been in it like 3 times in the last year. She has her Pathfinder, or she drives my IS300 if I take the Miata out.

Who cares what she thinks? It's not hers and she has her own car. Tell her to get over it.

A gentleman would offer to rub some soothing lotion on them.


My wife isn't in love with the Miata either, but she enjoys riding in it occasionally. Most of her complaints are related to how much time I spend on the car. She's jealous of my mechanical mistress. I remind her that it could be much worse.

Introduce her to your girlfriend. Should fix any of her concerns about the Miata.
