Any reason NOT to invest $4,500 in the 2009 Mazda5 3-owner with one damage report within first 10,000 miles (front impact) from 9 years ago with 140,000 miles on it?

This is not an investment . What does Kelley Blue Book say the value is. Have a mechanic look at it for about 100 to 125 so that will improve your chance of not buy a piece of junk.

About the right price… But @VOLVO_V70 is right, spend a bit to have your mechanic inspect it. Best $125 you’ll ever spend.

Loved that Mazda5. It’s too bad all the minivans became maxivans. Hope the mechanic check goes well.


#5

Lots to like about Mazdas, but they are far more rust prone than the norm. That may not matter so much depending on location.

Three owners in 9 years? Why? Are all the service records available to you? Not likely with that history.


#6

If it passes a mechanic’s pre-purchase inspection, I’d say at that price that’s a pretty good choice for a used mini-van.

Seems like a good deal a coworker has an older one with at least 220,000 miles that’s going strong.
