The Best of the Best SERVICE
My poor old 1997 Mazda 121 got ill, mind you he had travelled almost 310,000 kilolmetres and the medical bills were getting bigger and bigger. I went to one GM-Holden dealer to look at the Barina. Walked into the showroom, alleged Salespeople walking around, I was the sole possible customer. They simply ignored me so I walked out. Went down the road to Jarrett's. What a change! The Salesman, Brenton Woods, stopped doing whatever it was he was working on immediately and asked if he could help! The conversion was complete! The SERVICE - and the c...apitals are deliberate - from the start until I picked up my little new boy was endless. Nothing was too much trouble. I was introduced to the Accounts Manager, the Service Manager and on Delivery Day I was taken through all the new technology. One person is usually overlooked by New Car Buyers and that is the one who prepares the vehicle. His name is Eli, I have never met him but he did a beautiful job. After I had completed the first 1000 kilometres I booked him in for his First Check-up. All done with no fuss. I have since bought a couple of accessories for him and the SERVICE remains as high as ever. I cannot recommend Jarrett Mazda at Mount Barker Highly enough.
Awesome small sedan!
I bought the Mazda2 Maxx Sport Sedan for reverse camera and sensor.
Since it's normally only for 2 passenger, it is good enough (the back seat's space is quite narrow for tall people).
It is economical and easy to park.
I loved the interior design of the sport version - black cloth with red stitch.
I can also fold the back chair down for even bigger boot space, very handy when needed.
I also added GPS, which is an amazing add on.
As my first car, it is good for its value.
Great little car
Small enough to make parking easy. Fuel efficient, I get 500ks around town per 40 liter tank, quiet smooth ride. I have owned three Mazda 2's and they have never let me down. The only gripe I have is that the fuel gauge isn't very accurate once it passes 50% empty. I recommend these cars to anyone who wants a small fuel efficient reliable car.
Really liked this car so i bought one off the show room floor.
The sedan attracted me because of the large boot size.Good for a couple who want a holiday,as our luggage fits and our belongings aren't left exposed on rear seat.
Manual transmission works for me with plenty of power so don't be afraid to use it.
The automatic transmissions kickback didn't suit me.
Latency in response
Very comfortable on the inside and looks good. Low fuel consumption. Very good for learners and slow drivers. But I definitely would not recommend this car for those to rely on quick response of the car in various circumstances. It has a huge latency and may put lives in danger. I had to change my driving style after purchasing it. It is completely opposite to my previous car - Mazda 2 (!) fabricated in 2008.
Amazing fuel usage, great handling
Efficient on fuel is an understatement, we used to fill up once per fortnight now we fill up once in 2 and a half months, it's amazing.
As a second car its perfect for running about and picking up kids. The driving is zippy and smooth and has good pickup.
The interior is tidy and of good quality, the backseat is of reasonable size for a small car and the boot is pretty spacious. The mod cons aren't all there for the standard car but its okay
Overall the Mazda 2 is an awesome second car for a family or first car for a new driver.
Security, excellent road holding even in wet conditions, quiet running, large boot size, excellent petrol consumption approx 6OO kms to full tank, body alignment type seats, added hands free phone, usb port instead of cd player, automatic stop sensor on windscreen the neo comes with a pearl finish, no extra cost.
Zippy little car!
I love driving this car. We had a Mazda 323 protege before and after going back to Mazda after a spate of other cars, we were not disappointed! The interior is minimalistic, but functional and the running costs are great. I drive about 500 km per week to work and back. A 32L tank is about $40 a week running cost depending on the petrol price, and I drive every day including weekdays to take my daughter to swimming and random parties etc and it goes for about 7-10 days between fills. I have the hatchback which is little, and I have had trouble fitting things in there even with the seats folded but that's expected because its a small car!
A perfect city runnabout
I love this Mazda car which I bought for my partner . It is solidly built ( no tinny feel ) . The interior finish is high quality . It has fast acceleration for a small motor.
The car is also excellent on long drives on freeways . It hums at 110 kms . No vibrations or rattles. The radio bluetooth system is brilliant. I recommend it.
Comfortable and zippy little car
The smoothest car I've ever driven. Hardly chews the fuel (I only have to fuel up every 3-4 weeks) but has a lot of power when you put your foot down. It may look like a small car from the exterior but it has more space inside than you'd expect. And, i didn't expect this from a brand like Mazda but replacement parts are cheaper than expected.
Really love my new Mazda 2 GT
My Mazda 2 GT handles well. Easy steering and stable on road. Just love the interior, so glamorous/sophisticated with white genuine leather seats and interior with narrow red feature trims. A ladies' dream! The exterior Metallic
Soul Red just glows. Seats are so comfortable. There is adequate leg room. The hatch appears small but has just the right amount of space as is deep. The high tech. features are awesome such as pop-up driver display showing 3 items: speed being done, maximum speed limit for each road you are on, cruise-control details...
Mazda 2 - An awesome car
The best car I have driven. Really smooth and powerful. Very stable and got a comfortable feel. enjoying the luxury of a good car without paying an arm and leg for it. The look is very slick and modern. Thinking of changing my second car to a Mazda too. 100% recommend this car.
My Mazda 2 is the best car I have ever owned. It was my first 'Brand New' Car and it didn't let me down. So compact and easy to park. Sound system is fantastic. The standard tyres are remarkable and lasted so long. Comfortable for long trips. plenty of legroom in the back. Easy press button hatch opening. Great first car for young one or little zippy runaround for busy nana!
Mazda2 Genki -Light car segmen on premium price
Bought mazda2 Genki 2015 model for $23k including road costs. Now when I look back,
Positives- great for city drive
Autosensors with rear view reverse camera
Fun drive in city or on road with upto 80speed limit
Interior looks like premium however, this is not applicable to overhead roof.
Downsides- You are paying premium price for light car segment which is made in Thailand and NOT Japan
This car can sway sideways on windy days in Victoria on freeway. Solution is left lane drive or slow down the speed.
No blind spot monitoring in safety feature ...
Mazda2 Maxx Sedan - great budget buy
Firstly, i chose Soul red... arguably the best auto red around the moment. Still love it a year later.
Initially i found the car a little under powered, however quite quickly adjusted my driving behaviours and found it gets around just fine. This car is very economical to run. I have done some long distance driving - e.g sydney to Canberra - and have got the advertised fuel consumption. It also gets up to speed on the freeway easily and and is comfortable to sit in for long periods as both the driver and passenger. Choosing max was also a goo...
Love my car - zoom zoom
I recently went from a lancer which I had brand new to a demo Maxx 2 sedan - and I wish I had done it sooner, What a great car. Has the nice room of a sedan. Nice interior with a lot of features. Love the reversing camera and sat nav. Great drive too
Awesome little car
We replaced our Mazda 323 in 20014, and it was absolutely a surprise to find a small hatch with plenty of leg room, good sized boot, and all the nifty features I never had in my previous Mazda.The fuel economy is great, even with Adelaide's high fuel costs.I love the fact that it zips into small spaces in the shopping centre, sometimes I don't realise its still running if I have the radio on and waiting at the lights, "so quiet " I would recommend this fantastic little car to anyone especially older persons looking for an affordable little car.
Great Mazda Service, Solid feel built car.
Was looking to replace my written off Honda Jazz, but went to compare the Madza just to see and felt it was built better overall for the same price range. Performance is slightly underpowered for it's weight but the handling is great. The car feels solid which reduces the road and engine noise. Basic service is nearly $290 from the dealer so i take it to my trusty qualified mechanic for around $150. Note you do not have to get your car serviced at the dealer to keep your warranty, just as long as your mechanic is licensed and use genuine parts.
The car design inside is great, but the exterior is abit dull compare to other cars in it's class.
I love this car!!
Brand new 2017 Maxx model, gorgeous colour and a dream to drive. Plenty of headroom in the front for adults and I am quite tall. The back is really for children or babies. The seats are comfortable. Mine is an automatic and it handles very well and takes off well from stopped. Fuel consumption is very economical. The rear camera is great, an excellent safety feature. I find the i-stop annoying (the engine cuts out and restarts automatically when stopped in traffic) but it might work well when driving in the city. My previous Mazda was reliable, economical and good to drive and this one is a step up.
Mazda 2 sedan
I purchased the sedan as I wanted boot space and ease of accessing the boot that did not involve having to reach my arms far, as required with a hatch. The car size is good. We purchased rear sensors, as did not come with any! This car is easy to drive, including having a small turning circle. The car does not have automatic lights or wiper settings. The head space in the back is an issue for 5' 9" son. Petrol consumption is good. Take off from standing is slow, breaks are reliable / satisfactory.
Questions & Answers
2015 Mazda 2. Should the front left wheel be 10mm further back than the front right. Is this normal?
I have a 2015 genki dj series with 75000 klms on it. With regards to the fuel filter do these ever have to be replaced. Where is it, How often should it be replaced and can a home mechanic do it.
I am no mechanic so I did a google search. It tells you that it needs to be changed every 30000 klm, so if your car is suffering from symptoms of a bad filter such as it smells, lack of power and engine stall, then I suppose you need to change it.
Everything is on youtube, if that is something you want to do. Just do a search. I personally would not waste my time. You probably saving $100 (or $200 at the most). Just call up your local mechanic for a quote if you need to change it.
Sounds like you do everything yourself (such as change oil & service) which is great but I always go back to my dealer to service my car as I need it to be in a very good condition as I use my car everyday. Remember to change your drive belt (about 90klm) and your battery (probably end of the year) if you have not done so. I hope this helps.
