New Mazda owner
« on: November 24, 2017, 09:34:51 PM »
Hi Folks, I'm new to this forum and new to Mazda having bought a one owner 59 plate used Mazda 2 from a local dealer. I've got a standard TS 1.35 ish (I think). At the moment I think it's been great but I would appreciate any experienced people out there advising me on things to look for or know/common faults. Many thanks.

Hi and welcome  :)

My first Mazda 2 was a 2008 TS2, and my ex-wife had one too so I have a fait bit of experience of them.  The early cars had a recall for the rear wheel bearings. yours may have been on that - but it is that long ago that any problems would have happened by now!  The clutch pedal could develop a click as you used it, Mazda never did solve that one but I found it best not to let the pedal release too quickly.  The only other issue was that the release button on the boot could perish, that was fixed under warranty and was possibly fixed by the time yours was made - check for a thin crack on the button, looking like you've pressed your finger nail into it.

Hope that's of use, but also hope yours doesn't have any of those issues.
