2007 Mazda 3 Sport 2.0 petrol £1250

Recommended Posts

I realise that this might be a bit 'new' to be of much intererest here, but I thought I'd offer it on here before I have to deal with the pond life that inhabits Gumtree & Facebook Marketplace........

 

2007 '57' plate Mazda 3 Sport 2.0 petrol in Aurora Blue with 11 months MOT (due Sept 2019).

 

Currently on 108000 miles the car has had 3 owners from new & I have owned it for 4 years. The engine is chain driven producing 149bhp (when new) & has a 6 speed manual gearbox, its quite good on fuel - I get around 40mpg on average.

 

This year it has had new discs & pads all round, 2 rear shock absorbers & 4 new tyres fitted (all the same brand) which have still got plenty of life left in them.

 

It is equipped with DSC, traction control, cruise control, 4 elec windows, elec heated mirrors, leather interior, 6 disc cd changer (with factory fitted Bose sound system), climate control etc The aircon doesnt get too cold (probably just needs a regas m8!)

 

The car has been very reliable & for the past 3 years has been used daily for a 50 mile commute & has never let me down. Has some service history, I change the oil & filters myself every 6 months during my ownership, although I had it serviced by the garage that did the MOT earlier this month.

 

The car is in good overall condition (surprisingly un-rusty for an 11 year old Mazda, not even any previous MOT advisaries for rust!!!), and has some stone chipping / car park dints / general wear & tear for an 11 year old car.

 

I am only selling as I need a bigger car for the family, so I am offering this fantastic piece of far eastern engineering for £1250 for it as it is (if it goes to Gumtree / Facebook I will add a £250 idiot tax to the price, and I shall eagerly await offers of broken Xboxes, stolen pit bikes & flat screen TV's, Staffies, requests to pay for the car at £3 per month etc..........)

 

In the unlikely event that one of you chaps is interested, the car will be available after this week (collecting the new car at the end of Sept)

 

Located between Huntingdon & Peterborough (PE26 postcode)

Right. Most of you know how odd I am with my fleeting car ownership.

 

Anyone fancy this? Since I've had it, I've replaced all the wipers, fitted new NGK spark plugs, new alloy wheel center caps, new pressed plates and fitted an aux input.

 

Really drives fabulously. Almost complete history and an amazing spec.

 

£1250 as per the original price, so I'm making a small loss

Right I may pop this on Autotrader for a week if this doesn't shift on here as I have my eye on something on here. I'd that goes then I'll keep the Mazda for the time being.

 

I will be de misting the headlamps this week, and will fit a new fuel filter too!

      First some background:
      I was brought up with no car interest, a car was transport and nothing more which resulted in a selection of poor cheap cars being the cars of my youth.
       
      Fast forward many years (just over 9 years ago) and I have a wonderful* Vauxhall Vectra estate to carry us about. Unfortunately it is crap and throws fault codes at us with nothing being there when it is checked (even at Vauxhall)
       
      As Mrs T is the main pilot of this chariot with the two little miss T's on board, it has to go.
      The hunt is on for the new steed to safely and comfortably carry the family around. I have a company car at the time so big journeys are not an issue.
       
      ebay is my weapon of choice to find the new family car. It has to be good value cheap for no other reason than I am tight.
       
      Weeks of research with lots of cars that are too expensive and too far away for easy collection end up in my watch list.
      Finally a possible is spotted in Fife. I go and have a look and find a poor looking but solid car. One previous owner and lots of history.
       
      The auction was to end on the Saturday at midday, we were going to be out! I decided on how much I was willing to gamble on it and on the Saturday morning I put in my max bid but straight away it went to my max bid, I was winning but it had three hours to go with no room for me to go up! We went out anyway.
       
      I spent the next three hours kicking myself for not bidding more while we were out as it was the first car I had seen that fitted my criteria. Fate was in charge.
       
      On returning home I go straight on ebay to find 'Congratulations.............'
      For the grand total of £500 I had just won this fine vehicle!
       

       
      It has 5 months MOT and after fitting seat belts in the rear for the girls car seats it is pushed into daily service.
      My gamble and subsequent use results in a perfectly reliable car that actually does what it is supposed to do.
       
      Even more importantly Mrs T loves it so a win all round.
       
      All my cars have names (most are earned over a bit of time) and this one is called 'Gwendolen' ( G reg car and from Wales originally. I hate the name but I am not going to argue)
       
      That sums up part one, more will be along later (probably much later)

      My Compact is up for sale again, MOT until November.
      Manual, 2l turbo diesel, 165k miles.
      £750

      I've replaced a load of stuff over the years, been meticulous with servicing. Brand new turbo, crank pulley, injectors, inlet seals, handbrake mech, vortex filter etc). It had a new BMW battery from dealer a couple of years ago. New spare wheel, toolkit, books, wallet, first aid kit box etc
      Swirl flaps in the inlet have been blanked. Has black M-sport alcantara interior, with bucket seats (fully adjustable) and leather bits. It's really clean inside and out. Cool fold out rear windows like old Japanese cars but they’re auto electric powered
      17" E90 alloy wheels with four 5 month old Landsail tyres
      Two keys, service/manuals, dealer keyring, etc.

      The only things wrong with it:
      the glow plug ECU is reporting a fault.
      The front bumper is stone chipped.
       It has always started first turn of the key in whatever weather in the four years I've had this, so I'm sure the glow plugs are working, but it's just giving an error. It has had this fault in INPA since I've had it.

      It shifts quite well with 150bhp, I've managed 70 - 80mpg on a gentle run over 200 miles, but always get an average of 60mpg. There's no rust on the car, it's pretty mechanically sound I've done close to 70k miles in it I think. Only the crank pulley has failed on me in that time.

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
