 2015 Mazda 2 GENKI owner review

Patrick S purchased this Mazda 2 new for $22,690 (including all on-road costs). Patrick S wouldn't buy this car again because: "This was a fantastic small car to own and my highest recommendations for anyone looking for a small, cheap, fun, reliable little city car. I wouldn't get another only because I am now in the market for something a bit sportier, however, should I be in that market again it is definitely one that would be at the top of my list. "
