Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Mazda 2 hatchback?
Due to the urban driving that the Mazda 2 is likely to be subjected to, check that there isn’t any slippage or any notchiness from the clutch. Any problems here indicates abuse and the the likelihood of large repair bills.
Check for any scrapes to bumpers or poor accident repair to body panels. If the work hasn’t been carried out to Mazda’s workshop standards, then this could lead to future rust problems.
