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.

I agree with everything C said. That seems expensive. Cars are very high in the USA right now, though, so you must gauge the market for yourself.

That’s low miles for a 6. It should last a very long time.

Many may disagree with me, but I think Mazda has been making better cars than Honda (as far as durability goes) for over a decade now.

Bulwnkl, would you say durability, or would you say reliability and lasting-power? I think of being "robust", strongly-made, tough when I think of "durable"... I believe Mazda's are long-lived, but somehow I feel they are fragile. Certainly fragile paint, thin sheet metal?
Good question. When speaking in an automotive context, I use durable to mean long-lasting. I agree with you that the bodywork, for example, is light and thin.
