#381 of 538 Looking for a pre-owned NC MX-5?
Mar 16, 2008 (7:15 pm)
I remember a few of people here have expressed interest in looking for pre owned NC Miatas. I want to let you know that there have been a lot of lease turn ins that Mazda is taking back. Back in 2006, Mazda did an abundance of 24 month leases. Check with your local Mazda dealer, and ask them about any lease turn ins.
Mazda has an online auction, like eBay, for all it's dealers for lease turn ins. I have noticed an abundance of MX-5's pop up as of late. We just purchased a few ourselves.

That's exactly what came on mine and I have the kit in the trunk. I like them, but hear they are expensive to replace?

Thanks. I am looking, though probably not until July or so.
I'll do another search.
I've seen the 06s dip to about $17k. I did find one gem a couple of weeks ago, it was a leather-lined loaded up model with something like 8k miles. I should have jumped on it. I just wasn't planning on buying until later this year.
I'm keeping my eye out for bargains like that.
Where is your dealer? You're up in New England, right?

Yeah, I'm in CT, about 40 minutes from NYC.
Just to give you an idea of where they are price wise, we bought a 2006 MX-5 Touring (cloth interior, power options, 16" wheels) 5-speed tranny with 9,500 miles for. We are asking $17,990 with a Certified Pre-Owned Mazda warranty (8yr-100,000K)
This should be the price according to Edmunds.

Fair price since it's CPO.
Not sure when we're heading up to CT to visit the in-laws, but maybe I'll drop by your dealership if it's on my way. We may go this summer.
They are in Norwalk. My brother-in-law is in Milford. Is either place close?

Milford and Norwalk are about 30 minutes from me. I'm located in Danbury.

Thanks for the info on Mazda Roadside...it sounds like a nice plan. Between that, the repair kit and AAA I'll feel okay on those roadtrips.

Lets be real here, how often do you encounter a blown tire? That's what I thought. That is exactly why Mazda does not include a spare tire. Not to mention the fact that the MX-5 is a seasonal car to begin with, and they are usually driven UNDER 10,000 miles per year. Less weight, and less cost. Really not a bad decision on Mazda's part, if you think about it.

Has anyone tired to fit full size 15 or 16 inch rim and tires from Mazda3 in NC MX-5 trunck?

I have to agree. Never used my spare.
In fact one time I checked and my spare was flat. Oops. Wouldn't even had been useful if I did get a flat.
I've only taken it out of town twice, to the beach, about 150 miles away. I doubt I'll do that again. It's cramped for long trips like that.
