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!
Love this car so much!
This car is amazing. I have found it to be very reliable and economic. Having the sedan definitely provides a lot more boot space, and a small amount of room in the back seats. It has a nice interior. I have found the driving experience to be of high standard, however you still have a bit of noise that you would expect from a medium priced car.
Overall, I have found this car to be my perfect first car, and have loved driving it.
The Mazda 2 is a great small car and the perfect first car. The front passenger seat has a lot more legroom than you would expect, as to the back seats. It is quite fuel efficient and is very reliable. Is also extremely quiet making the driving experience great. Love it.
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 ...
One of the most affordable cars I have driven
I got this car 5 years ago and still feels like a new car when I drive. great fuel consumption and the interior is way better than some small cars in the market. this car has a generous boot space too. i drove this to Melbourne and didn't even feel like i drove 800kms.
Ticks most of the boxes
I've owned a number of small cars in the past (Nissan Pulsar, Suzuki Swift, Toyota Vitz) and I would definitely rate the Mazda 2 above all of them. I have a 2012 Mazda 2 Sport 1.5 bought as the second owner here in NZ. To me it is a much more refined car than the others I have owned and well equipped, safety was a big factor when I chose it, and I appreciate having stability control and side/curtain airbags.
I have had no problems with fuel consumption, I do a lot of short trips around town with a bit of motorway on the weekends and it's usual...
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...
Little awesome zippy car!
The car handles well since it's quite small. It can be agile when there are not many passengers, but you can easily feel the extra weight when you go to accelerate if you have 3 or more people in the car. Nonetheless I've had no issues with this model so far.
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.
Perfect small car.
Purchased second hand my Mazda 2 is incredibly cheap on petrol and runs smoothly. One of the quietest cars I've driven and also the easiest to drive and park. It may look small from the outside but is actually quite spacious inside. It does hit potholes quite hard though but I try to avoid them anyway.
Perfect for my needs
Purchased a used 2013 Mazda 2 to replace my previously crashed old car, and it has been great. No issues so far, runs smoothly and looks pretty. I haven't used the boot or the back seats much though, so unable to comment. From what I can tell, it has decent fuel mileage but haven't counted exactly.
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.
My 2011 mazda 2 is an amazing car to drive and is amazing on fuel. I put 98 premium in and it costs $42 for a full tank of petrol. Is comfy car to drive and has everything i need. Is a great little car for someone just starting to drive.
great to drive, economical, very reliable, not enough compartments & their not roomy enough for proper storage.Leg room good, have accidentally gone into nuetral & sports just by a knock of bag etc . Looks sleek.Great sound system .ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM .Drivers seat a little low for shorter people like myself, i use a cushion.
Check engine light issues!!
Have had nothing but issues with my mazda 2 Neo, it went okay for about 15,000km then the check engine kept coming on, then it would go okay for a few weeks then it would come on again, this has probably happened about 15 times and majority of the time i am told it was dirty fuel even though 90% of the time the fuel i used was 98 so i swapped between servos to see which was the best one. Have had the engine replaced and just about every other component in the engine block. Have had it towed 4 times once from 100km away. Engine has cut out on me...while driving on more than one occasion, and when i tried to get a new car i was told i would have to pay the difference with the amount of distance the car had been driven, and now after seemingly going okay for about 5 months the check engine light has come on again and i am getting told it need a carbon cleanout here we go again. UPDATE: Took my car in for the service cost me $877 and less than a day later my engine light came back on, when I took the car back was informed properly everyday for 4 days then I had to ring them after hearing nothing for a week. They cleaned out the manifold which had carbon build-up, so do I change servos again because this will be the 6th servo that has had an issue with dirty fuel.
Another Mazda purchased!
good performance & driving experience
Awesome red & black sports interior!
Costs approx $55 to fill fuel tank very economical
Front of car quiet low to ground so be careful over bumps in the road!
Fourth Mazda I've owned!
Dislike to maintain car warranty can only get Mazda serviced at same dealership
