Autotrader Find: 1992 Mazda 929 With 40,000 Miles

If you’re a car enthusiast, you may remember the Mazda 929Mazda’s flagship sedan, which rivaled models like the Toyota Avalon, the Acura Legend, and the Nissan Maxima, and which ultimately became the Millenia. Most people, however, have forgotten the 929 — but if you look back on it fondly, here’s your chance to own a nice one.

This particular 929 is a 1992 model, which is the first model year of this particular generation. Like all 929 models, it used a 3.0-liter V6 with around 195 horsepower, but the benefit of this particular one is that it’s traveled just 40,000 miles from new. That surely makes this one of the best-preserved 929 models in existence, as this generation lasted for just four model years, and it wasn’t particularly popular at the time.

According to the Carfax report, this 929 was sold new in May 1992 in Salisbury, North Carolina, where it remained with the first owner until February 2016 and 37,000 miles — an amazing 24-year ownership. The car then bounced around with a few owners in South Carolina and Colorado before ending up where it is now: offered for sale by Maaliki Motors in the Denver area with 40,500 miles on the odometer.

The 929 certainly wasn’t the most popular 1990s sedan, or the most revered, but it’s an interesting relic from a different era. And this particular one is an especially nice relic for people who want to relive the bygone days of Mazda.

  1. My dad owns a 1988 Mazda 929. Have gone on quite a few road trips out to West Virginia (from Minnesota). He bought it for a temporary car in the early 2000s waiting for the Chevy bel air. It never came out and we still own that car.
