1998 Mazda Mx-5 MK2 2d Convertible
Update 26/2/2019- Just undergone RACWA inspection. No issues found. Commented on the use of non standard rims and tyres and condition of drivers seat centre section worn. I can put you in touch with inspecting party.
Very low 68,690kms. There is no service history with the vehicle. Before my time this 1998 vehicle was sold new by Berwick Mazda in Dandenong Victoria. The next record I have found is from Ballarat City Mazda Victoria in 2004 when the vehicle was seen at 55,101kms. I assume the vehicle was stored for some years for unknown reasons as the next record available is from Melville Mazda Perth Western Australia when the vehicle was seen in 2016 at 63,000km. I purchased the vehicle at auction last year with a little over 65,000kms showing on the digital odometer. The 1.8L engine looks original and runs beautifully and is coupled to 5 speed manual gear box. Has 16” alloy wheels with 4 BRAND NEW 205/45R16 tyres. Drives well and structurally looks original. Exterior 8/10 interior 7/10. Drivers seat needs some attention. Soft top in good serviceable condition. All cooling, brake and clutch fluids replaced, and radiator hose replaced at recent service with no other issues reported. Licenced to 27/01/2019. Will provide Statutory Declaration as to the accuracy of the vehicle kilometres, More photos available. Fresh Mazda service with the sale of the vehicle. Genuine buyers only at or around the asking price please.
No service history is an issue granted but if you were to look at and drive the vehicle you would realise that the odometer reading is correct. The engine is tight as a drum and has 30,000km before timing belt is required(every 100,000km). Overhead gear is very quiet. The gear box is smooth and all the disc rotors are very serviceable and pad ware is only 40%. Clutch is solid with good pedal height and no judder. It needs a few cosmetic fix ups but is mechanically excellent. I bought a new set of front and rear pads in anticipation but were not required. Buyer is welcome to have these. I have done a little over 3000km since ownership and no oil has been consumed after a new oil and filter change at purchase. Old filter was cut and inspected and no metal was evident. The engine does not blow any blue smoke. The existing tyres although with good tread were 20 years old so I assumed original. All were replaced with new 205/45R16s. I will supply a full service and mechanical check at any Mazda dealer. Price is negotiable based on any issues found but want $7500 at least as a starting point. I don’t anticipate any problems. Only 68,690km!
Reason for selling is purely financial.
