What Owners Say
"CD player would not function"Anonymous, CO (2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring 2.0-L 4 Cyl)
"Stopped pairing"Anonymous, AZ (2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring 2.0-L 4 Cyl)
"The battery is dead after not being used for several days. We were initially told by the Mazda dealer we bought the car from that the radio had a short and had to be replaced. When the radio was replaced it was discovered that the CD player also did not work and was replaced. However, the problem occurred again and again. So far the dealer has not been able to find the problem but finally confirmed that there was a problem. The dealer has specifically stated that they do not feel responsible for not determining the problem and giving back an unreliable, defective, and unsafe car. They claim that the car worked when it left their repair facility. The car will work if it is used every day after having been recharged. The car is currently at another location of the dealer where they remained mystified. An online search showed that a phantom drain has been a known Mazda issue for a number of years."Anonymous, CA (2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring 2.0-L 4 Cyl)
