Just picked up my 2001 MPV LX (Rainforest Mica) with Touring Pkg, Moonroof, Roof Rack, 6-disc changer, etc. Paid Edmunds TMV. It was great - I showed the salesman all of my homework and told him to take it or leave it. They took it. It was really a great experience at Millenium Mazda in Durham, NC.
Now I have to read all of the posts from the various MPV boards!

Did the dealer offer any incentives (either $1000 cash + 1.9 financing; OR $1500 cash)???
Seems to me that the dealers are tight-lipped about what incentives are available. I took the $1000 + 1.9 APR.

Interesting - they offered me $1,000 (which the local dealership doubled to $2000) plus 4.9%.
I was happy with 4.9 (my credit union only had 6.7), but 1.9 would have been even better.
They were not making a big deal about any incentives, and heard of them while there.

The freight + air condition tax + administration fee is cnd$1235
Total price is (24510+1235) + TAX = 29607.

Just wondering how well other canadian did.
The business manager push me buy an extended warrenty, which is 7 year, 160000km (100k mile) bumper to bumper. The cost is cnd$2195 + tax.

#2185 of 8223 extended warranties
Sep 19, 2001 (11:06 am)
Buying a 2001 LX and was offered the extended 5 year warranty for $1095. Anyone feel its worth it? Or are there any other sources?

A few Q's
How far do you drive in a year?
What is the mileage limit on the extended warranty?
Why do I ask? The Mazda new comes with 36month/50K mile warranty. So unless you are getting 60 months and 100K miles, and you actually expect to drive that far, then go for it.
You are basically talking about $550/year for two additional years, if you don't blow through the mileage allowance.
It may look like a 5 year warranty, but in most cases, it really is only a two year warranty since you get three years regardless what you pay for your van. Of course if you are buying miles...
But if you are really warranty conscious, it might be cheaper to lease for three years and get a new van when this one is out of warranty. If you drive less than 16.6K/year and can get a lease with that many miles, this might be the way to go.
Final question, Mazda warranty or third party.
I'm partial to the car makers warranty if I chose because they have more to lose if I'm not happy.

The guy asks for advice. I post a few clarifying questions and this thread goes dead.
