Mazda 2 after 250 miles. Again after 40,000 miles
By mikeinct on
Vehicle2013 Mazda 2 Touring 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI had concerns about the Mazda 2 based on other reviewers reports.
So far my experience has been very positive.
I almost bought a Honda Fit base.
But for less money I bought the Mazda2 Touring MT.
My feeling is that the Mazda is sportier and more fun to drive.
Also I am finding that with careful use of the stick you can get much better economy than reported by EPA.
On stop and go commute my mpg is mid to high thirties.
I have yet to spend much time on the highway but I won't be surprised to see over 40.
I like the interior and the exterior.
The build quality is evident.
Everything inside and on the dash is intuitive.
After 40,000 the Mazda 2 runs fine. It has been good in the winter and
gets great gas mileage ~ 35 to 40 mpg. The only problem I had was front rotor warping
at 25,000 which I repaired. Not under warranty.
I expect to run the car for many more inexpensive years.....Mike
After 60,000 miles the Mazda runs fine. I did have to redo the front rotors again. When they warped the first time the fix was to resurface and this was not a good idea. I should have insisted on new rotors.
