2011 Mazda 2 Touring 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

The car is great, but NOT with an automatic tranny. I would have bought the stick but my wife can't drive a stick. I miss my Echo, that was the best car I've ever owned. The ride is fine. But getting out into traffic is dangerous. The acceleration is very laggy. There's a delay. Going around corners is sketchy because throttle control is a guessing game. You step on the gas and it's a crapshoot what's going to happen. There's no gradual acceleration, it hits - reminiscent of a 2-stroke dirtbike. The cruise control buttons are my least favorite of all the types I've had. The fuel economy is not what I'd expect from a tiny car. The driver seat is all the way back and I'm 5'8".

Best Features

I like the solid rubbery ride, don't mind the way you feel the road or even the road noise. Good steering and braking. Comfortable seats. Price.

Worst Features

New auto transmission. Better cruise-control controls. Give us 2 keys and don't charge $400 for a second key - rude!
