I bought this car in April 2009 at Lujack Mazda in Iowa and have loved it for 12 years but am "upgrading" to a new CX-5 so it's time to say goodbye to the hot hatch.
I have all service paperwork, most of which was performed at Don Miller Mazda in Madison, WI. Most recent service item was replacement of the air conditioner compressor last fall. There is nothing the car currently needs other than new brake pads in the next 5000 miles.

Car is bone stock. Zero mods added to the car. The only addition to the vehicle has been a 3/4" hidden hitch, which I've used to attach a 2-bicycle bike rack.

Current tires are around 2 years old and have loads of life left. Car also comes with a separate set of very nice aluminum alloy 16" winter rims with winter specific tires, with enough tread for about two winters.

Interior is in excellent condition. Exterior is in very good condition. There is a very thin crack on the passenger side of windshield, which has remained unchanged for quite some time. Paint is in very good condition, with some very small, minimal rust right behind the wheel well, which is not really visible without looking for it.

Car has been treated with nothing but love and care, as I've enjoyed this car immensely.
