2009 Mazda 5, 147k miles, MANUAL TRANSMISSION, $1500 (updated from $2000).
Second owner, had it since 2011, bought it used from a BMW dealer with 52k miles on it. Clean title, no check engine codes, everything in the drivetrain works properly. Selling because my wife wanted a new car, AC isn't working and I don't have time to troubleshoot anymore, and I traveled more than half the year and didn't have time for deep dives into the car to fix small things and make it perfect to sell..

This is a true manual transmission car with a fresh-ish clutch and tons of life left in it. The AC was working until recently, but something electrical is preventing the AC compressor clutch from engaging- I replaced the clutch (not the first time), and it still won't turn on. I'm thinking the refrigerant pressure sensor or the evaporator temp sensor, haven't had the time to dig into those systems yet and I really need the driveway space and the cash now...

The good:
New AC compressor clutch (146.5k)
New passenger front lower control arm (146.5k)
New passenger engine mount (146.5k)
New rear engine mount (146.1k)
New brakes (discs, pads) with fluid flush (145.1k)
New upper front strut mounts (145.1k)
New battery (144.2k)
New coil pack in cylinder #1 (143.5k)
AC refrigerant purge/refill (143.4k)
New MAF sensor (143.2k)
New AC fan blower resistor module (136.5k)
K&N reuseable air intake filter in the factory intake box

Oil change with Mobil1 full synthetic @ 143.4k

The bad:
AC doesn't work, as previously stated (electrical problem to clutch)
Blower fan has leaves in it (edit, not anymore, spins fine))
Driver's window regulator needs to be replaced ($56 @ AutoZone)
CD player doesn't play CDs
Overhead DVD player has Disney's Cars stuck in it (blame my son), still works with aux inputs.
Front bumper cover has the usual Mazda5 problems with the anchor holes at the fenders not holding, solved with big washers and big bolts. Plus the scrape on the front right of the bumper (pictured).
Tires could use replacing in a few thousand miles, but they roll smooth and pass inspection in Texas.

EXTRAS that will come with the car:
HID headlights (they don't glare in the OEM projectors)
NC Miata wheels (only 17 pounds!)
Oil filter conversion to spin on Mazda3 adapter, no more pesky cartridge filter!
Knowledge that the engine is healthier than advertised- it put down 143-145 to the wheels, which translates up to about 170hp at the crank vs the Mazda advertised 155hp, assuming typical 15% drivetrain loss to the wheels.

The car is located 10 minutes from DFW airport in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex. PM here through Facebook if you're interested in the car.

Posting here first (and Mazda 5 Facebook Group) before putting it on general sale sites. Will wait a few days before kicking out to other Facebook groups and sale sites- figured the 5 community might be interested in having first stab at a manual.

If someone in this group buys the car, I'll throw in a Metra dash kit for a Double-DIN head unit (radio) and the radio wiring harness adapter. Pay my asking price and I'll throw in the OEM side skirts that I bought and never mounted.

Good luck! We have '15 5 and it's such a great vehicle but I always wish it was a manual, haha.

Thanks! Every car I own is a manual... so specifically hunted this one down because we needed more space for a few years.

Good man! Both my daily drivers are manual. The wife can be stuck with the slushbox! 😀

Friendly BUMP for a good member's good car! Honestly presented as well! I don't need a 3rd Mazda in my driveway at this moment, but if I did, it would be this. The swiss army knife of cars...I miss mine sometimes still.

Thanks! Updated the post a little- and it IS pending, but may still fall through if the buyer doesn't take it on Tuesday (June 2). Blower fan no longer has leaves in it, spins fine. Price updated to $1500, and if you want it (and the guy on Tuesday doesn't take it), I'll even fly you in to buy it if there are tickets on American Airlines that I can get for points.

Hey everyone, my 5 just drove away from my house for the last time. Thanks for all the interest! Sadly, it didn't go to anyone in the Facebook group or on here on the forum. What that means though- will soon post up two stereo dash kits (one still new), side skirts, BC coilovers, Mazdaspeed3 rear sway bar, adjustable upper control arms, front left lower control arm (new!), and maybe a few sets of wheels plus other crap I'm sure I'm forgetting. Oh. Mazdaspeed3 big brake conversion with SS lines too.
