*SOLD* Buy My Car… (2005 Mazda 3)

We’ve got some life changes afoot here in the Coleman household which means my current commuter vehicle of choice – a Mazda 3 – isn’t going to cut it anymore.

As much as I love it, we’ve got to part company – so my 2005 Mazda 3 is on the block. If you’re looking for a new(ish) car, or know someone who is take a look. It’s got an extended warranty that goes with the car (4yr/100,000km) and a full set of Bridgestone Blizzaks (on steel rims) that I’ll throw in as well – more details below.

If you’re interested drop me an email or check out either the Facebook or Craigslist postings (contact methods there too).


The highlights:

  • Indigo blue exterior, Black interior both in excellent shape
  • Power Windows, Doors & Mirrors (w/Remote Keyless Entry)
  • Power Sunroof
  • 16” Alloy Wheels
  • 2.0L – Auto with 4-speed sport mode transmission
  • Cruise Control
  • AM/FM/CD
  • Air Conditioning
  • Low Kms (~32,000)
  • Dealer Maintained


  • Extended FACTORY warranty – car has warranty through four years (Sept 2009) or 100,000km
  • Full set of lightly used Bridgestone Blizzak Tires mounted on Steel Rims ($1000 new) (1.5 Seasons ~5,000km on tires – Good for many more seasons to come)

Asking: $18,975 o.b.o

  1. I used to own a Mazda 3 and I have some problems with it, like an unidentifiable noise in the front end when accelerating in a turning position from standstill. In addition the plastic on this car is frail – plastic at base of windshield and windows chips very easily if scraping ice and shifting still feels stiff to me, especially 2nd gear. In conclusion, this car is fun to drive, when it runs properly, but I can’t believe the repair and maintenance costs of some of its Mazda Control Arm lately. I’m almost afraid to continue driving it at this point as it has emptied my bank account…

    Hope yours is not that hard to maintain and has no problem… Because even with the problems I had with my previous Mazda a friend of mine is quite interested in owning one because of the so called rotary engine..

  2. This is such a great looking car, why do you want to sell it? If this was my car I'd only sell it to buy a 2010 Mazda 6, they really outdone themselves in every perspective: the design, the comfort and low fuel requirements.

  3. I will always go for new cars. Try visiting your local car dealers. Nowadays you can get some really nice deals as I have already done after visiting a Portsmouth Hyundai dealer.
