2011 Mazda Mazda2 Sport 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
Just bought the 2011 Mazda2 to replace my slowly dying 1999 Nissan Maxima.
It is awesome.
The savings on gas is unbelievable.
I drive mainly around town (work commute is under 4 miles on surface streets) and it handles beautifully.
Contrary to the "pro" reviews, I don't find the engine noise loud and the acceleration is fine.
This car has everything I had in my Maxima with the exception of cruise control (I wasn't interested in paying extra $ for fog lights, cruise control, and red seat piping on the Touring edition).
Oh, and did I mention, my 16 year old thinks it is awesome!
Placement of dials and controls.
Put the door lock control on the door - even the guy at the dealership had trouble figuring out where the control was.
