A good car!

published

I’ve owned my Mazda 2 Neo for nearly 2 years now. It’s a good to drive car with enough power and good economy. Handles really well too which makes it a fun car to drive.

Few quality issues fixed under warranty such as a faulty BCM, rear suspension and rear seatbelts.

If you regularly stream music from your phone I’d recommend getting one with MZD screen as the Neo’s basic radio isn’t much use. Works fine but just cant select music or podcasts via the radio. Although that’s something I should have checked before buying it.

All in all a good car and one worth looking at.

Great first car

published

Bought this car a little over 6 months ago and it has been great ever since I purchased it. Have never ahd a problem with it, it is extremely economical on fuel. It is a smaller car so you would not want to have a whole family in it. But it is a great little run about town car,

Awesome small sedan!

published

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

published

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.

Great Car

published

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

published

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

published

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.

Zippy little car!

published

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!

I LOVE this car cannot fault

published

I am really happy with this car. It was the best decision i ever made it is so cheap to run and i have never had a problem with it. It just zips around the place so easily and parts are easily accessible. The inside interior is so comfortable and pretty spacious in the back but boot size could be bigger but i am happy with it as its all i needed.

A perfect city runnabout

published

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

published

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.

Great car.

published

I have had my Mazda 2 Neo for 5 and a half years. It has been nothing but good to me, never had an issue. It is so easy to drive, park, reverse etc. there's nothing I dislike about the interior, everything is easy to clean. I fill up my tank every fortnight for around $35-$42. My upgrade will definitely be another Mazda but for now this little bubble is running just fine!

Great small car! Petrol consumption is awful!

published

Love the feel of the Mazda 2, great handling and braking and a perfect small car! However the petrol consumption is that of a 30 year old V8 engine and seems to be a very common problem with the model. Within 2 years the car had to be rewired and the brakes failed due to bad fluid put in from new purchase! Wouldn't recommend the Mazda 2!
