Manual 2016 Touring with 84K miles for $12,800 after taxes/fees. Good deal?

Hi all,

I found a manual 2016 Touring with 84K miles that I plan on checking out this Saturday. It was an Auction car and it looks good based on the pics. The dealer does give me 2-3 hours to get it inspected so my plan was to take it to the closest Mazda dealer for a PPI.

The carfax does show an accident without any damage. Not sure what that means…

Couple of questions:

  • is the 2016 model as noisy as it’s portrayed to be?
  • is 84K miles too much for used car with a direct injection engine or no need to worry about that?
  • is the car comfortable enough for road trips and a daily 40 mile commute?

I appreciate any feedback you can provide.

IMHO the price is too high but right now the price is too high on any used car, so there you go.

In terms of durability and total cost-of-ownership? The 3rd Gen "6" is hard to beat, especially with a stick which removes one of the high-expense risks from the equation. I have no idea what sort of screwing you get with one of these up north where they salt things, but I've yet to see a vehicle that tolerates that well beyond the 10 year point.

With well over 200k on the clock of mine I still love it and other than routine maintenance have had exactly zero problems.
