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


Review

I love my 2006 MX5. I use it for commute. I have problems when it rain. Every rain season the car floods from the drains inside the car. The dealership fixes it everytime for no charge. Concern problems continues. I am scared to drive or park the car outside in the rain. What should I do?


Best Features

Handles great!! Love everything else.

Review

Love my car. Continuous problems with the roof leaking and flooding inside the car behind the seats. The vents keep clogging where water runs off. Problem every rain season. Any suggestions?


Worst Features

Solve the roof problem. Larger vents for water to run off.

Review

Wow! Like a motorbike with four wheels. I love this car! I bought a new Fiat Spider in 1980 because I almost froze riding home from the mountains at Banff to Calgary at night. This Miata is to replace the Fiat while I rebuild it. I may never rebuild the Fiat because this Miata is sooo much better in all ways (except maybe the way the cupholder sticks you in the leg). What a blast! The gas mileage is even fairly good at over 30 mpg. I have found the long way home or to where I am going regardless of the cost of gas here in Canada. This roadster is really sooo much better than my Fiat Spider ever was.


Best Features

Zippy engine, exhaust sound, on-rails-like handling, excellent top, good air and heater, decent gas mileage on regular(better but more expensive on premium). Zoom, Zoom, Zoom!!!


Worst Features

Get rid of the cup holders, put a storage compartment under the arm rest cover.

Review

On "The Dragon" in the Tennessee mountains, all but the fastest motorcycles hold me back. This car really handles well. I'm getting about 24-26 MPG. The manual top is very easy to open and close. In hot weather the top often clicks into its boot with just a simple backwards push. In cooler weather I have to twist back in the seat to click it into the boot. Either process takes 3 to 10 seconds. My wife is just 5"3" and needs to get out of the car seat to open and close. The red mica is beautiful on this car.


Best Features

Handling, fit and finish, economical to purchase and maintain.


Worst Features

iPod/MP3 integration.

Review

I have had my MX5 for 6 months now, and I am in love with it! The new body style is definitely eye catching.It performs great and corners fantastic. I must admit though I did expect better gas mileage with the a/c on, but it more than makes up for that in the fun category.


Best Features

Zoom-zoom.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage, less interior noise, top latch rattles intermittently.
