downsizing?
« on: November 18, 2009, 09:21:25 AM »
My son has just done his first 19k in the new 2, cracking little runabout,  would recommend for anybody for a town car ( wife's  shopping trolley etc ) also sits on motorway no problem, worth considing if anybody needs to downsize or get a second car but staying with the maxda brand.

1.3 Petrol & the smaller engine output too but to be honest this is a real cracker ( due to light weight of car ) the mileage he's done i wish we'd have gone for the diesel thou, but there's nothing wrong the petrol i bet the 1.5 sport is a belter & would like to test drive.
