First car, never had an issue! Dont want to upgrade.

published

I purchased this car when i just got my licence and 7 year later I still dont want to upgrade. I regularly service it and never have issues with it. Fuel economy is great. Only issue im having recently is the clear coat is coming off my paintwork but i guess that is a sign of age for a 14 year old car.

Very impressed.

published

Probably the best small car that I have owned. It handles well, goes really well and costs very little to run. The only complaint is that the radio is difficult to replace with another type. Only in the early 2007 models though. Seats are comfortable and I'm 6ft. Car is quiet, unless you really give it a stir and then the throaty engine sounds great.

Runs like a Swiss watch

published

Have done over 110,000 kms and not a problem. Very roomy back seat, also great load space with seats down and large rear door with low loading lip. I use it mainly around Sydney but have driven to Tamworth and Canberra, and it handles highway speeds comfortably. Very zippy off the mark even with the auto. Economy 7.2l/100km on the highway, just over 8l/100kms around town.
Totally reliable, fun to drive and very roomy
Only complaint is that the small wheels give it a slightly choppy ride on rough surfaces.

Great car and very roomy for its size

published

We've done 60,000km in it with only a couple of issues so far. As others have said interior is very roomy, I'm 6ft tall and is nice and comfortable to drive, we also have a large dog and she can sit up quite happily in the boot.
We've got an auto and it is still quite zippy around town. Feels well built.

We've only had the following issues with it:
- After springs replaced from suspension recall front end now audibly creaks when being compressed on car park ramps, steep driveways etc.
- CD player got stuck and wouldn't eject a CD for about 6mths then one day the CD just came out and all is ok again!
- One of the engine mounts has worn out and needs replacement
Flexible, reliable, practical car

Did a lot of research before buying my Genki. Couldnt have chosen better. Usually travels carrying 3 people and not a problem. Corners & handles incredibly with plenty of get up and go (I have a manual not automatic). Love my Two!!
Everything, great car, great fuel economy, great reliability, and soooo cute

My mum bought this car a couple of years back and was heartbroken when she got rear ended and lost it. it was a great car. Even after it was completely smashed by the accident and the back wheel wouldnt even turn the motor still ran perfectly.This car was really efficient on fuel and really reliable. It never broke down and was a really safe good car. Had it not been for the safety features it had my mum would have been alot more injured in the accident.
Great price, Great size, plenty of room inside, very reliable, very safe, great look, great to drive, great on fuel, efficient and just all round awesome.
Absolutely nothing

I LOVE this car! Three years later I still get a kick out of getting in and driving it. The only reason I would change it is to buy the new model coming out in the next few months)
incredibly roomy for such a small car (brought a flat-pack IKEA wardrobe home in it), excellent safety equipment, totally reliable (57K km and not a single problem), great handling, terrific equipment.
Base Neo has key-operated central locking (got it after-market upgraded for $250... money well spent)

In January, we were looking for a new hatchback with a lot of space and that was easy to get in and out of. After much trawling round car dealers we came across the Mazda Neo 2, a splendid little hatchback that runs on the smell of a petrol rag and has a high ceiling for tall people.We bought it and a small trailer to match it's size.Just perfect for couples, singles and pensioners.

Grat little car. Had choice of Ford Fiesta, Honda Jazz, Holden Cruze or Holden barina and still went for the Mazda. Best car we've ever had!!
(My Mums got the Neo 2003) Lots of features even for the standard one 6 years ago. Cd player, AC, Power windows and mirrors, zippy 1.5 and full of character. Not one problem after six years, Great loading and giant boot even with the rear seats up. Comfortable seats and well finished interior
