2nd Year of Use Review
By Marc Mushkin on
Vehicle2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewMy 06 Mazda MX5 is a wonderful little car - "fun to drive" was a phrase I never understood until getting this car. It's great ... but: 1) having the cup holders on the doors is a dumb idea. They rub your thigh and if you ever put a drink there and forget when you open/close the door you'll have the drink flying all over (unless it's a NASA designed sealed cup). 2) The electronic keys are a disaster: I've had to change batteries four times in 2 years. One of my keys gave out entirely and it was replaced (warranty, thankfully). They tell me the keys "communicate" with my BlackBerry, so they constantly run the battery down. Really? In any case, this flaw is a real bummer!
Best FeaturesConvertible top - amazingly simple, elegant and functional
Worst FeaturesAs stated above: the keys MUST be fixed. I don't know if this has been addressed on later versions.
