2010 Mazda MAZDA2 Review
Unreliable And Dangerous Car — Owned the Mazda 2 sedan 1.6 auto car for 10 months and was involved in a bad crash due to losing control at 90km/h (highway speed) braking to avoid another car that swerve into my lane without indicators. Found out that the rear suspension is leaking badly and may have caused the crash. Besides that, there is a long list of problems on it and Mazda chose to ignore my complaints. List of problems include: 1) Burning smell during acceleration 2) Squeaky noise on rear suspension 3) Brake suddenly loses pressure during idle 4) Faulty reverse sensor 5) Noisy power steering when turned full lock 6) Warped disc brake It's unfortunate that i got a lemon car, but so does dozens of Mazda 2 owners out there. Hopefully there will be a huge lawsuit against Mazda. I guess you get a lemon when you pay for the price of one... Never had any problems with all previous models of Mazdas i owned. This is the worst Mazda ever in my life. My advice is never buy it to all potential customers out there!
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Light weight, quiet, stylish, low maintenance cost, good ride comfort with low NVH, large cargo space in sedan and great handling
Cons: Severely underpowered, brakes auto releasing itself during braking, burning smell during acceleration, faulty rear suspension, Electronic Brake Force distribution without Stability Control that can cause crash at high speed braking, cramped back seat and uncomfortably hard seats, poor visibility at rear on sedan models, faulty reverse sensor and a long list of problems

Power very adequate for one person commuter. Handling is outright impressive. Interior feels cheap and interior dash is boring. Smaller than most of the sub-compact competition. Car seems ... Read More

Appearance: It's a car built to target Asian girls, and the styling reflects that. It's curvy, yet still has a few sharp angles. Looking forward to the update due in Australia in May. Build Qual... Read More
