Bad computer
By oldfartfighter on


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


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

Best Features

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

Worst Features

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