We have owned our Bongo 2.5TD 4WD for 7 1/2 years and its quite simply part of the family. We have such fun in it. This is probably due to its incredible versatility. Its a camper, mini-bus, does trips to the dump, can carry quite large item of furniture, plus more. Fairly basic to maintain. We did have a cylinder head go on us two years ago, but then she is 17 yrs old! This is a great family car and kids always seem to shine to them. The only downside really is the poor fuel...

hi, bongo owners, This is a great campa van, we bought our first van a few mounths ago and we think it is great, we also had a awaning made for it in a lovely blue, but because we are in our 80's we couldnt manage to put it up, so we would like to find anyone that would be interested in buying it, we are very sad to see it go as we paid £675 for it selling it for 300, if possible, we are out a lot in our van and love it, happy camping ann (read more)

The Mazda Bongo Friendee !
Owned for 4 years done 100,000 km, only regular maintenance, no breakdowns, no problems with electrics, auto is great, best 4 speed I've driven, the 2.5 TD engine is a torquey workhorse, some describe it as weezy and noisy, but if you look at the sound deadening in the van, there is a lot of room for improvement! Once proper sound deadening it put it strategically, its way more refined!
Lots of verstility for seating, particularly as the front seats also fold... (read more)

The Bongo drives like a car, can be used on a daily basis and is very versatile. We had ours converted for camping, it sleeps four at a push and two comfortably, add an awning and you have lots of space.
Bongo fury the owners club/forum is very useful for picking up info/parts, basically anything to do with Bongo's.
Once you have driven one you will be hooked. Tel (read more)

We have had our Bongo conversion for 5 years and it has never let us down. We have been all over Europe in it and driven in all weathers. Often referred to as a weekend vehicle, we are often away for 3 weeks with no problems at all. We bought it with my husband's retirement 'lump sum' and it has been the best purchase we have ever made. Minor disadvantages. 1. It is too tall for most height barriers. 2. MPG not great (20-25mpg).

We have had our Mazda Bongo a year now, and we are already looking at what we can do to extend her life (e.g. quality replacement components, waxoiling, etc).
She has a few issues, but most we can get fixed as we go.
The kids (6 and 4) both love her, and we have no problem getting them ready to go out when it is in the Bongo. Just cant imagine life without her now! (read more)

We bought our Mazda Bongo two years ago. We were looking for a people carrier but also needed something for touring abroad and with enough space to transport items to and from our holiday home. This was more than ideal its great to drive and easier to park than our car. We had some overheating problems but all it needed was a good Bongo garage. I can't praise it enough. (read more)

We had a coverted our Mazda Bongo in the UK and loved it, we were very sad when we had to sell it in order to go travelling. The engine was great, we owned it for 2 years and never had any problems. The rear conversion was great, and having a fridge was a really good idea as you can enjoy a cold beer with a BBQ or your dinner. We will definatly buy another bongo. (read more)
