I personally don't like most of their body styles. But I researched it for my niece in college for her budget. She's been driving it from Fountain Valley to UCLA (about 40 miles each way) for 2 years with no issues yet.

yes reliability stats are what hyundai/kia is great at. i can tell you everyne i know that's been down that road has had problem after problem, or they are in the 1-2 year trade cycle, never gonna pay it off BS. so i say no to korean cars.

I also see people on a budget getting Scions. Not sure how they're priced, but it is a Toyota, so it must be pretty good.

maybe it was a joke? Mazda 2 never came out?

http://www.caranddriver.com/mazda/mazda-2

i can't find any info on it either.. or they don't sell them in the US:

https://www.mazdausa.com/?referrer=http://www.mazda.com

here is the wiki on it:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazda_Demio

"Mazda USA announced that the Mazda2 hatchback will not be sold in the US market, except in Puerto Rico, due to low sales of the previous generation model. The sedan variant, however, will be marketed in the US by Toyota as the Scion iA"


So it looks like the new Toyota yaris is the new mazda 2.

"In the United States, the Scion iA sold 7,605 units in 2015.[77] Due to the discontinuation of the Scion marque, the model was re-branded as the Toyota Yaris iA after August 2016 for model year 2017"


darn Akiba for making me research things...

I can't get one in the USA, because we have standards.
