2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata Sport 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I currently own a 2006 Miata Sport and it is my 5th one. I bought first year model they came out and they are unbeatable for the money.All the ones I've had average close to 30mpg and I have spent $0 dollars on any of them. They're the most reliable and dependable cars I've ever owned. I've had the Honda S2000 and it's expensive to upkeep..preminum gas,tires are staggered so you can't rotate and insurance is outrageous.. the shear fun factor alone this these Miata's is priceless.i've owned every convertible on the market ( or pretty close) and I always come back to the Miata.Only issue I've ever had with these cars is the rain drains clogging up and water standing in the passenger floorboard


Favorite Features

cheap to own and keep up. parts are cheap. handling is insane. great value


Suggested Improvements

rain drains tend to clog up and water stands in the passenger floorboards. Keeping those drains clean is of the most utmost importantance to prevent issue.Mazda knows of this design flaw and offers a kit to correct this for $700.. maybe make the drains more straight down and take out the curves

2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I love the car, but, my wife will not ride with me any more, the damn car (computer) takes a crap if you park next to or close to overhead power lines. do not trust the car any more, last week we went for a ride to view fall leaves and stopped at a road side tavern for a brew, went to car , it would not allow the "key" to start, after much frustration and calling a tow truck operator, my wife looked at the manual and found that overhead power lines could cause a problem, enlisted some cowboys from tavern and pushed the car about 6' away from the overhead powerline, walah, it started. now will not venture any further than to town 2 miles do not trust the SOB


Favorite Features

great looking and well built but the electronics lousy, too bad for a car like this, my 3rd one and last!


Suggested Improvements

get rid of the many BS computer stuff, a KEY IS GREAT

2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata Touring 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Very questionable plastics in interior. Have experienced annoying rattling clicking noise on console. Absolutely no help from Mazda with problem. While very fun to drive, the annoying rattle takes enjoyment out.


Favorite Features

Looks, fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

Get rid of cheap plastics in interior.

Review

I am very impressed with the car. It seems to have made some significant improvements since the last change in 1999. The only improvement needed is gas mileage.


Favorite Features

The convertible top.


Suggested Improvements

One improvement needed - better gas mileage.

Review

Had my '06 MX-5 for about 2 weeks now. I have enjoyed the car thus far. Seems solid and is fun to drive.


Favorite Features

Comfortable seats, fold down top, auto transmission, keyless starter.


Suggested Improvements

Still would like to see more interior room and storage. A few more toys like built in garage door opener, outside temp, one touch power windows, bigger trunk.
