A journey in buying a Mazda 3 hatchback
So I've driven the skin out of my mazda 626. Almost 175K done on it, and only after buying it in '06. Through this time I have had envy for the mazda3 hatchbacks and now am in the process of acquiring one.
Not many of these for sale where I am at (KC), however I came across a 2004 Mazda3 s hatchback. Besides the standard features, it also has a sunroof/moonroof and 6-disc cd changer with leather interior. It has around 35K done on it (yea, that low right?!)
What would be a good deal on this sort of car? Since it is one of the older models and its already 2011, I am finding it hard to judge a fair price in a private dealer situation.
Would love your inputs and thoughts on this!
