I'm looking at buying a 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 with 155,000 miles. I've looked at the Carfax and the service history looks good and well documented. The 6 speed has been serviced at 154,000 miles, new clutch kit, seals and fluid change.

I wanted to know what things i should pay close attention to and make sure to check. I have no experience with this platform or even Mazda's in general so any and all advice will be very much appreciated.

Give this thread from MSF a read. It mostly pertains to gen1 MS3, but a lot of the info can be applied to the gen2(2010+). There’s a TSB for the sticky dash that sometimes happens on the 2010s. I had my dash replaced for free by the dealership. There’s also an issue with the VVT for MS3 with build dates ending in February 2010. This is a $1k plus repair for parts and labor. Good luck in the hunt.
