CA 2010 RX-8 R3 Blue 32k miles (Los Angeles) *** SALE PENDING ***

Year: 2010
Make: Mazda
Model: RX-8
Price: $13000
Mileage: 32500
Color: Aurora Blue Mica
Private or Dealer Listing: Private Listing
Location (US State/Canada/Int): CA

*** SALE PENDING ***

Purchased in May of 2017 at around 13,500 miles. I have never tracked it, only driven on public roads. Garaged day/night. Stock except for all LED interior lighting, LED rear license plate light, debadged "Mazda" lettering on tailgate. Tires are Nitto Motivo, 70% treadwear left. Interior is in excellent condition.

Carfax report available for free viewing here

Additional photos here

Maintenance
- Redline transmission and differential oils added at 13,500 miles
- Cabin and engine air filters replaced at 13,500 miles
- Oil changes performed every 3000 miles using Castrol GTX (conventional) 5W-30
- Engine redlined regularly, in excellent health
- Compression test performed at 31,000 miles, at an elevation of 1500ft. Video here
- New spark plugs installed at 31,000 miles. Original ignition coils/wires.
- Passenger airbag recall replacement performed 1/27/2018
- Passed CA emissions inspection (smog) December 2018
- New battery installed 2/20/2019

Minor cosmetic and mechanical imperfections
- on rare occasions, shifter pops out of fourth gear into neutral; no other transmission issues, no gear grinding
Note: the shifter may only need a simple adjustment. Please see this thread detailing the Counter Shaft adjustment procedure. I plan to have my mechanic investigate.
- driver's power window auto up/down not working
- small dent in rear left fender; no paint damage
- moderate curb rash on all wheels

Included with purchase
- two smart card remote keys
- wheel lock nut key
- spare set of floor mats
- tire repair kit
- owners manual
- I can also include four new slotted brake rotors and Hawk HPS pads if desired

I'm selling due to an office relocation at my company. The R3 is my daily driver, and I can't afford a second vehicle. The combination of the increased commuting distance, the RX-8's thirsty nature, and the annoyance of driving a manual transmission in stop-and-go rush hour freeway traffic would make commuting in the R3 a miserable experience, especially in hot weather. I've decided to lease an electric vehicle and let the R3 go.

Pre-purchase inspections are welcome, within a reasonable distance. Asking price is firm at $13,000.

Thanks for your consideration.

Nice R3! Have you tried the Power Window Initialization procedure?
From the SII service manual:
POWER WINDOW INITIALIZATION PROCEDURE
NOTE:
Initial setting must be performed for the switch of each window drive-side and passengerside.
If the following operations have been performed, initial setting is reset, and auto up/down
and two-step down operation are disabled. Therefore, performing initial setting is
necessary.
Negative battery cable disconnected or power window system power
supply fuse removed. (perform initial setting for the switches of all seats.)
Power window switch connector disconnected. (Perform initial setting for
the switch connected with the connector.)
Prolonged open/close operation of the power window main or sub
switches causes the circuit breaker to activate and automatic operation is
disabled.
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
2. Press the switch of each window and fully open the door glass.
3. Pull the switch of each window to the manual-up position to fully close the door glass, and
keep holding the switch up at the position for approx. 2 s.
Good luck with sale!

Yes, I've tried the initialization procedure but the auto up/down function was not restored. Thanks for your post.

Many thanks for the additional pics. Whilst I appreciate the mileage, it's a little more than I'd like to pay with the issues you've listed and being on the other side of the Country. Good luck with the sale.
