Due to main experience with my previous car, I paid close attention to reliability when I was buying this car. And the Demio (or any Mazda) really is reliable. In three years we only put gas in it and drove it.
It is also quite roomy and has decent storage space for a small car.
The motor is one of the strong points of this car. It has enough power, but isn't a big 'consumer'. Changing gears is not that good, it's a little bit slow.
It is also very well equipped, air conditioning, 2x electric windows, central locking, fog lights for a reasonable price.
Perfect car for small urban family (roomy, reliable and easy to park)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2000 Mazda Demio Escape 1.5 from UK and Ireland
Excellent - comfortable and easy to handle
No problems at all.
I bought this car after one owner - the seats were immaculate. However I have now covered the seats as I like to make sure they are preserved in good condition
I am extremely impressed with the Demio 1.5 it is very nippy - drives superbly (after a Nissan Micra which are sometimes very heavy to handle)
It is a real "head turner" - body polishes very well - such a rare car I have only seen 1 other in 1 month.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I agree with the comments, I too have a Mazda Demio Escape 1500 - absolutely brilliant car. My daughter has bought one too... very rare we ever see another on the road. Only seen 1 other in our town!!! 10 out of 10 overall.

I have bought yet another Mazda Demio, GSI, this time... still a brilliant car, don't know why it is not more popular. Although I'm glad it isn't I like owning a "rare" car.
