Breaking system

The car at this point has proven to be everything promised but I wasn’t told about the braking assist. Very bad idea, dangerous to other drivers. The car makes you keep your distance. That allows others to fill gap the the car applies the brakes forcing everyone behind you to break and the gap in front of you doesn’t justify the brake being used. You end up being a bad driver. 3 times it has coursed me to experience others wrath. Show details

Nice ute but a few issues

Purchased March 2021 and now done almost 25,000km. This is a farm ute. No major issues except the mice like the wiper blades and, like other people say, the "take key" bell is really, really annoying when you are jumping in and out of the vehicle all day on the farm. Even after 2 years, that bell still drives me nuts.

Also, I think it is a bit soft for a farm ute. I don't know how long the plastic rear bumper will last the rigors of paddock work and sticks etc. And the front plastic bumper scratched easily until I got a bull bar. So far I don't put it through the same paces in the paddock that I did with my previous ute - 2003 Hilux. Show details

Frustrating piece of junk

Unfortunately I purchased a new bt50 thinking it would be as good as my old one.
This new one is the biggest pice of junk I’ve owned.
Compared to my old 09 bt50 the ride quality is terrible, fuel consumption is slightly higher & even though it’s meant to have more power it seems slower & sluggish.
The auto transmission sometimes holds gears for too long around town, but at higher speeds it’s always changing between 5th & 6th.
Luckily mine has the update that lets me turn of lane keep assist with one button, but unfortunately there’s no easy way to turn off the autonomous braking which seems apply itself randomly when you pass vehicles using a turning lane. Show details

Buyer beware. Terrible "safety" features, paint scratches like nothing else, clutch noises

Had a 2020 new model/shape BT50 for 13mths.

Pros:
-punchy
-quiet on the road (if you can put up with beeping and warning systems!)
-towed well

Cons:
-Mazda Australia only provide lip service about the woeful "safety" features.... Lane control, cameras, auto braking, sensors are all very dangerous. Nothing short of dismal in fact. Will pick up things which are irrelevant on the road and then jam on brakes and swerve for no reason. Hated this stuff. Constantly beeping at something. Very difficult and frustrating to turn off without a simple button like other cars.
-paint scratches exceptionally easily and panels dent with minimal pressure.
-high beams are really not great
-ugly old style park lights
-after market mods really expensive Show details

Don't buy this car if you drive on country roads!

The Lane Departure Prevention system makes driving this car on country roads down-right dangerous. This is a quote from the manual "In the following situations, do not use the system because an accident may unexpectedly occur. It may not be able to properly control the vehicle because the lane cannot be recognised. - General roads, -roads with curves, -old lane markings, -avoiding a stationary vehicle, -crack or repair mark on the road, etc." Unlike other brands we own, the LDP system cannot be turned off, except by going through a series of settings EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU TURN ON THE KEY! Mazda say they are working on a fix, but it has obviously been a long time coming. How hard is it to make it default to off instead of on? Show details

Shitbox

Done 7000 kms on my brand new bt-50 before driving it on sand for 2 hours, somehow the front dif has blown a hole in itself and 4x4 wouldn’t work. Mazda says they’ll pay for everything yet I’m stuck in the middle of no where for weeks without a courtesy car or accommodation. Camping on the side of the road waiting for them to find me a hire car Show details

New 4X4

Only 1 week old, can’t wait to get it off road. Mainly used to get to and from work, a lot of technology I have to get used to which will take a while, and have to see how reliable it is off road Show details

Kiwi here. Just bought a 2022 BT50 and am horrified at the ridiculous settings it comes with. Loved my CX5 it replaced but it looks at if Mazda is at the mercy of Isuzu now. Lane assist in particular is lethal as I'm on rural roads often but Isuzu NZ says they will only make the off setting easier to get to through the menu, not supply a button as I read elsewhere for Auz owners. Any other experiences out there?

Yeh I think that's standard. Did you ask the dealer to remove it or turn it off for you?

I hate it-especially when towing my van. Turn it off and it just comes on again each time I restart the engine.
