Does the Mazda 2 2013 model have a timing belt or a timing chain?
does the 2010 mazda 2 have a timing belt or timing chain and what maintenance is required if it is a chain and what kms does the belt need changing if it is a belt. thanks
The Mazda2 has a "timing belt" and should be replaced at approximately at 90 to 100,000kl.
This is the most expensive service you will incur, in what is an otherwise relatively cheap car to service, as long as you service the car at about 15 to 20,000kl.
I hope this has been useful to you.
The Mazda 2 2007-2014 model do NOT have a timing chain. They come with timing chain which is a much better alternative as y

Hello, I have a Question, Hope everyone can help me sort it out ..thank you ..
My question is, I just brought a 2013 new Mazda2, when I brought this car, the dealer give me full tank patrol . And I drove bit more than 200kms in the City, and my Patrol tank is nearly empty .......I do not understand,, 200kms is not far, if in Sydney, even can not go to Newcastale return with this full tank ....
So Does anyone know this situation is normal ? For a New car ? Maybe drive in the City, have to use lot of Patrol ? Stop, start,stop,start.......is that so? ....if anyone know Why like that, please let me know ...thank you .....
Hi Frank, just visited the Mazda website and found out the Combined average is 6.8Litres for 100 Km that is 100/6.8 = 14.70 km per liter. Now 14.70 X 42 Liters (full tank) = 617 Km. This is the combined average. So you must get an average of 600 Km to your full tank. At the worst case scenario of 8.9L/100 Km you should still get 470 Km per tank that is if you are driving so called Urban or City drive for full time. Hope you can run a few more test and then take remedial measures.
My 2008 Mazda 2 Neo in the past few days has started running rough, at the lights and when sitting in traffic it has started to jump and shake violently. I took it straight to the mechanic, who advised me to put it into neutral when the car did this. This annoyed me as instead of the finding the issue, he just told me how to stop it. I also requested he put some fuel cleaner through as I had just refuelled somewhere I normally don’t and thought it could be a bout of bad fuel. He said no it was probably a gear box issue. I asked him to check the fuel filters for blockages based on some advice given to me. He refused and told me it was probably the gearbox. He did drive the car and said the issue was definitely present, however failed to even lift the bonnet and have a look?
Agree with Jassin, I would be taking it to an independent Mazda dealership to a proper mechanic, yes they more than likely will charge you more but if you plan on keeping the car for a while and re-selling later down the road it is probably the best option
My Gear change consol bulb needs changing, how do I get to it?
I have the same issue, mine does not light up which is really difficult at night. I havent been able to find any information on this. Hopefully someone on here has the right information!!
Hi Alexass, Just found out this week, the consul top easily snaps off (and on again) just pull it carefully and you will probably find that although the bulb holder is there the wiring isn't. Apparently often the case with imported second hand or the garage has removed the wiring for some idiotic reason..
Does it have a timing belt or timing chain?
Timing chain. That was a plus point. I may have gone overboard in my dislike of the ride quality, but it is a short wheelbase high car, so some hobby-horse rocking and rolling could be predicted. But this didn't come out in my test drive, which was mainly on open roads. The urban ride is unsettled, and unsettling. I can never relax and just enjoy driving. And I suppose the electrical faults are likely to occur with any car. Just bad luck it happened to me. It is a tough, nuggety little beast. But the upholstery is needlessly firm, and doesn't soak up what the suspension can't cope with. It does ride better with two or more people aboard, but then performance suffers. I think I just need to go back to a larger car, even if my wallet can't handle the fuel prices. I used to enjoy a relaxed drive around local seaside sights and sounds, in my lovely Peugeots. No longer.
which year and when was the recall for the clutch?
