I just bought a 2007 Mazda MX5, 42000 on the clock and in good nick. After having it a few days - I called the guy as its pulling to the left on acceleration. Also - Diff noise is audible too. He picked it up - took it to Mazda for a health check and the report says:

Front tyres are low

changed battering in key fob

slight corrosion to front discs

and I was spot on about the Diff

so when he's back from hols in 10 days time - he's gonna get the diff fixed and sorted.

to be honest - I'd be expecting him to put 2 new tyres on it at £100 a piece for Bridgestone tyres (recommended)

Does that sound unreasonable?

Did you not notice the tyres when you bought it? Who buys a car and doesn't check the tyres????


Private seller..he is under no obligation to sort anything.

Commercial seller....likely he will sort diff, but tyres etc, your problem unless seller is very charitable that day.
