    So reliable and excellent fuel consumption

    published

    Extremely reliable and great on fuel.
    Great turning circle and super easy to park.
    Like all small cars it is not good if you need lots of leg room. Surprisingly though, we’ve managed to fit a lot in it while moving house (even bookshelves), and have managed to take it on camping trips with all our gear.
    Out of all the cars our family has owned this one has served us the best.

    Horror

    published

    Bought a 1997 Mazda 121 for my first car. Here I am on my l's, driving it and all of a sudden it catches fire under the bonnet. Over 2 grand down the drain. After that experience, never buying Mazda again.

    I'm 13 years old this is a review of the Mazda. It's a good car, hasn't missed a beat can, do hand brakes easy and has a lot of go to. It tows big logs back to the fire, it goes great and it has been punished by me and my family. It had a fight with an Toyota Camry in a tug of war but both got bogged and the trusty Hilux towed them both out with no problem.
