Default Experts Help Needed ... on buying a Mazda 3 Hatchback.

I had given an option to pick up a Mazda 3 hatchback (Imported).

I have only one worry about picking this up, Service ... !!!

Can someone let me know about the availability of both Spares and all the service centers in India. I stay at Bangalore, but will not worry to travel to service it.

Bro, if it is a 2009 Mazda 3, then it is a very good car. Problem as you rightly said is service, which even here in Dubai is nothing to crow about.

Try contacting Varun_m. He recently bought a miata and changed a few parts which he bought online if I remember correctly. If you have a good mechanic i think servicing will not be a trouble as I really doubt it offers some high end complex electronics. And 3 years is not very old so you should not be looking at anything major. Is it owned by an embassy or is it a private import?

The car is a private import one. The person was bought the car in uk and was using it.

Then he has imported the same here.

If the guy bought it down right now under TR, I dont think he can legally sell it for another two years.
A very honest question: Why do you want to buy it? I mean that it wont come cheap. Plus it does not offer anything very special. Is he giving a very good deal for it? How much is he asking for?
