How is your Mazda 2 working out for you? Did you get std. or auto? What kind of fuel mileage are you getting around town? I would like the 5 speed but I'm sure my wife will want the automatic. I would appreciate any comments about the M2 both pro and con. Thanks Bud

If you fit this description, please respond to predmunds.com with your preferred contact information by Friday, October 19, 2012.

Thank you so much for the information. I thought this board was dead. My wife is still pressing for the automatic so I guess it will do a bit less in mpg. It still seems very workable for me. Thanks again for the info and the link to the fuelly page. Bud Mabry.

A reporter is looking for a subcompact car owner or shopper to weigh in on what kind of impact a sleeker design, like the "Furia" concept released in Detroit, would have on their purchase decision. If you own or are looking for a subcompact car, and think a sleeker design would impact which car you buy, please send your daytime contact info to predmunds.com no later than Monday, January 21, 2013 at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET.
#92 of 92 Automatic transmission is laggy
Jul 12, 2013 (11:49 pm)
Automatic transmission is laggy. Cornering from a stop sign is sketchy as the throttle control hits a bit like a 2-stroke dirtbike, but after a delay. I press the accelerator pedal and nothing happens for a second. Doesn't matter how gradually I depress it, it lags -then hits. So trying to control speed from a stop around a corner on a city street is hard because it unpredictably lurches toward the car stopped on the right.
The overall car is great. I wish my wife could drive a stick, the auto tranny is no good for city driving. I bet the 5-speed is great. I miss my Echo! MPG is disappointing.
I'm 5'8" and the driver seat is all the way back. The cruise-control controls are my least favorite of the many types I've had.
