MX3 V6 Valuations



  • OK all ive been hunting around and having a good checkup on a the value of my mx3 v6 (WES) so i had hin appraised for intrest reasons here what i got..

    Mazda MX-3 Coupe (91 - 98)For Looks, driving position, V6 engine against ropey ride and handling 1.6 engine

    Reliability 3 stars Well engineered, but expensive to maintain with age. Essential (though expensive) cambelt replacement needed after five years

    Mazda MX-3 Coupe 1.8i V6 2dr 1996 (P ) 114,000 miles
    Dealer £2,255
    Private £1,705
    Part exchange £1,405
    Trade £1,255
    Cost new £17,400

    Now some how i dont think i will get the private rate for Wes at 1700, now what do you all think the real value would be of a mx3 v6 like Wes…

    Rainy...



  • i think a fair price depending on how well looked after 'wes' is then in between £750 - £1250.

    Also miles, work done etc will be taken into account



  • someone once offered me £250 and a bag of jellybeans for mine. i was so tempted cos i love them beans. but the old girl is not for sale…



  • Against - ropey ride and handling??? No way

    **The ride's a little on the harsh side (though less so than our Mk1 MX-5… brrrr), but the handling? GTFO.

    Aaanyway. I'd expect to pay £2k tops for a below-average-mileage, R-plate, V6 in properly mint condition - so £1.5k for a late model in good condition seems okay to me, mileage depending.

    Red's up to 107k now, though not in mint condition at the moment (she's getting there). I'd still be lucky to get £2k for her if I was selling because, even though the mileage is below average, people are blinded by 6-digit odometers. 100k is a big turn-off - though we all know these things can run thrice that without a problem (if serviced properly).**



  • Please note all for the record i never made the quote ref the handling..

    **I bought mine in September 2003 for £3,250.

    18 months later - at a Mazda garage where it was being serviced and MoTed - a mechanic offered me £5k for it.

    And no, I'm glad I didn't take it - Red's become part of our family, and is getting packed into a shipping container when we emigrate :D**

    At the moment, all plans are for Oregon. It's a few years away yet, mind.



  • Low milage, FSH, T&T up to £1300
    Mid Milage 75 - 85,000 some history , in good condition, T&T £500 - £850
    High milage 115,000+ in good nick, T&T up to £600

    But as soon as the condition is anything but good the price starts to drop quickly.



  • i paid 500 clams for mine. 115,000ish in good con, with T&T. that was a smidge over 2 years ago.

    These prices seem quite fair and accurate,
    I have done well out of my mazdas the first MX3 the guy was desperate and I beat him down to £550 from £950 for a j plate with 155k, FMDSH and every factory extra because he was desperate and I like to haggle low LOL

    The second and current one I did a 8 hour round trip to cornwall to get a 97 R plate with 71k and FSH for £800 this is about a year ago it depends where you go there are some bargains around or they go for book price.

    I did see last summer a local forecourt with a 1998 'S' plate MX3 in silver for £2495
