2008 Mazda 8 Repairs - Should I still buy? Sign In

Hello,
I am about to purchase a used 2008 Mazda for 5000$, with 103,000KM with no rust on the body.

There was an inspection done, and it pointed out the following:
1. Shock-Struts Front - Front right learking
2. Disc Rotors Front - Rotor Rusted
3. Disc pad/ Shoes Rear - 4MM left
4. Disc Rotor/Drum Rear - Rear Rotor Very Rusted
5. Ball Joints - Front Left Loose
6. Battery test - Need to be replaed
7. Lights exterior/interior - To be replaced
8. Break system condtion - Breaks are noisy

Other things highlighted, which I believe to the above mentioned items are as follows:
1. Remove and replace high mount stop lights
2. Remove and replace battery
3. Remove and replace F control arm/lower
4 wheel thrust alignment needed
I`m wondering, how much would that cost to fix, and is it still worht buying, how much can I negotiate?

Thank you!

I would be more concerned as to WHY the brakes are all rusted up. Has the car been parked for a long time?........... WHY?

Its from a used car dealership, the Car Proof shows nothing, likely obtained at an auction.

Just my opinion without looking up values or much. Pass on this it needs things a vehicle that if it was cared for wouldn't need. Keep looking and still get another checked out like that it was good info to forget that car and move on,
