Hi Everyone,

My GH TS2 2.0 Petrol is 7.5 years old now and has less than 29000 miles on the clock. With full service history, immaculate interior, but it does have a couple of small scratches on the outside as you would expect it from a London car this age.
It has a fullsize spare wheel in the boot and has Michelin Crossclimate tyres installed on all four corners.
It still has RAC warranty on it until the end of October.
I love the car as it has never let me down, even on long journeys at rather high speeds in Europe. But it lacks power, I am tempted to go down the Skoda Octavia VRS route.
Webuyanycar reckons I can get £5500 for my Mazda. What do you guys think? I will probably get it serviced and MOTd before I sell it hopefully that will boost it's value a bit more than the actual service costs. 8)

Thanks

Try the Honest John Daily Telegraph motoring section "Value my Car."
The figure you quote is the same as offered for a 2 litre  of the same age, as a trade in against another car, but with double the mileage of yours.
So think you may well get a bit better offer.
Low mileage cars in good condition are not normally a big problem selling.Dealers want them,

Thanks for the tip mate. My biggest issue is that I like Mazdas. They make well
Equipped reliable beautiful cars. But they do rust. I previously ownedd a Skyactiv but that one was a diesel. That one was rusting too even though it was less than 2 years old. The other thing that it did rattle and drove me crazy. I might be looking at a Skyactiv 165ps Petrol as well. But the Octavia VRS is in a different league.

Good luck with your search, trying the different cars out can be very interesting. You tend to find one that fits you and you have the that " this will do for me "feeling.Then the haggle with the salesman bit.

Should have mentioned if you are looking at the Skoda VRS, very nice car, but check if it's a chain cam engine or belt cam. If belt cam, it will need a new belt ,rollers and water pump at 40k or 4 years whichever comes first.
With main dealer it tends to be on the expensive side of a service. A lot mentioned in various VAG sites. on the subject. £400/£600 is mentioned. Dealers tend to gloss over this fact until your three year warranty is running out . ( I did a bit of homework of this make and was put off by the comments.)
Also are Mazda not bringing the 2.5 petrol engine with a Turbo to the UK in the near future. Read something
along those lines, may well be wrong but if correct will be a great motor.

I drove a 2.0 TSi Laurin & Klement Superb today. very refined actually Superb car. It has all bells and whistles, lane assist, park assist everything. Pulled like a train too. Mazda's naturally aspirated petrol's do lack that. I have seen a 2.0 Sport Mazda6 Skyactiv at my local dealer, I might give that a go too. It is a beautiful car too.
Thanks for the tip about the timing chain.
