I was a holden girl before I got this car and now I would never go back. Mazda girl for life here.
Great zippy car and very good on fuel. FIts all my shopping in the boot & has an awesome stereo.
Could be a little quicker, but for a 4 cyl, still has some guts

The mazda 2 is really good for it's size and price. It's spacious for just 4 people, a bit of a squeeze for 5 but for it's size it's good. The interior is really modern, well designed.
Awesome little car. Fairly fuel efficient although it is a small car. Feels roomy inside for it's size. Love it
Nothing really. The cup holders aren't great, they don't hold large cups. Could do with a bit more storage space but not at the expense of being a small car. Spare tire is only designed to get you home but that's nothing unusual for a small car.

I love this car! it's a 2009 Genki, which for top of the range, has leather steering wheel and gearstick, sound system controls on the steering wheel, very nice mags and foglights, to name a few extras. it certainly does as the commercials say...zoom zoom zoom. A fantastic car that deserves the rap it gets.
Plenty of grunt on the open road, smooth drive and gearchange, great on fuel,handles really well. fantastic little car with great safety features.
nothing really, except for maybe a bit more storage space in the console area and a slightly larger or more obvious fuel gauge.

What year did Mazda 2 start using soy based coating on wires?

This was an interesting question as I was not aware of it. I have tried to contact the dealer who sold me the car who had no idea about it, and asked me to contact Mazda directly. I have sent Mazda an email on 1st Jan 2020, and is still waiting to hear back from them. I will update this once I get a reply.

Thank you! I also emailed Mazda and the reply was a "best guess" as the person did not work in the actual parts department, but to his knowledge Mazda uses only plastic not soy coatings on wires. I did ask a follow up to let me know if he got more accurate information. Funny thing was that person at Mazda had purchased a Honda that had soy and it cost him $2200 bucks in repairs from rodent damage. My mom's Honda..over $1200. To me this soy issue is as big as the takata airbag issue and it is industry wide. So far, the auto manufacturers have avoided taking responsibility inspite of numerous class action suits.

Yes, Agree. This could be the tip of the ice-berg.
In 2016, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Toyota claiming the company should cover this type of damage after a customer was forced to pay around $1,500 to fix the chewed wiring under warranty.

I also own a Mazda 2 2007. MAXX nothing but troubles, rattles rough idle at lights too.
Paid for 3 bloody engine mounts, sensor, air filter, had to dealer so sick of it now. Seems to be on a real low ratio when starting up to 40 after that it's ok in higher gears. Auto. Had engine cleans, starting to think it is a lemon.
Very disappointed.......any suggestions?

For those who are having fuel economy issues, im from NZ so we only have years no maxx sport or genki variants. So is there a certain year that has issues..1.5 or 1.3 cvt or auto?
After a wee car like this but it will do a 200km round trip to our closest city 1 x a week, then of course small trips around our small town.
Fuel prices are going up..want economy without having to go to a hybrid. Looking at 2nd hand mazda 2 or demio 2009-2011
So any recommendation/advise would be appreciated
