#1056 of 2415 WHAT'S AGOOD PRICE FOR I-4 hATCH
Mar 27, 2005 (9:02 am)
Can anyone help me in determining what I should pay for a new 2004 Mazda6 5dr.,manual hatch with the security package and the Bose/moonroof package with cloth. There are only two 2004s in my area (CT). Both are Volcanic red. There is $3000 incentive from Mazda, plus another $1,000 from Mazda credit if financing at approx. 6.5% for 60 months. I am at $18,300 plus tax, title, insurance, and a $299 conveyance fee. The invoice is approx $21,800. Should I be below invoice plus the incentives or is 22,300 - 4000 incentives good ( 18,300)?

18,300 is way high.
This car is nearly two model years old.
I'd offer 17,000 at the most, plus they waive the conveyance fee, whatever that is.

Looks like the vehicle I quoted was sold.
I've found a few more 04's in the area that are definitely cheaper, though they have 7-10k on the clock rather than the 53km the sold one had.
Fortunately no rush for me, so I'll proceed with Due Diligence.

With invoice prices of around 24-25K the dealers in my area want around 20K plus tax . There must be at least 10 2004 wagons in my area but none seem to be willing to sell for less than 20K after the 6,000 in rebates . What puts me off even more is that I just realized what about the mileage and the first dealer said 500 miles on his new wagon ouch . What do you think a fiar price is on the wagons that have a msrp of around 26-27K .
thanks JM .
#1060 of 2415 Certifed pre-owned?
Mar 29, 2005 (12:55 pm)
I thought about trying to find a leftover 'new' '04, or even buying a new '05, but there's a dealer in my area (Maple Shade Mazda, Maple Shade, NJ) who only sells used Certified Pre-Owned Mazdas, and with a certified pre-owned car you get a lot of extra warranty protection. I made a deal on an '04 6S ATX sedan with 13k miles on it for the 'Internet price' of a bit over $18 and was out the door for under $20.
The car is going to be my wife's driver and she puts about 30k/year on the odometer because of her long commute, so when I thought about it, it seemed like actually a better deal than buying new (because she will blow through the remainder of the 4yr/50k bumper-to-bumper in a little over a year).

`This Mazda 6 wagon was the Parts manager's demo
it has 4920 miles on it. `
It wonders me how dealers fail to mention small descripiances like this when they quote new car prices !!!!!

You're wise not to rush, Clive. That is one of the biggest advantages, I believe, we consumers have in the madness called car buying.
My Mazda dealer uses autotrader.ca as one source for used car pricing.
Visiting various dealerships may be helpful in determining with whom you would like to deal once you're ready.
#1063 of 2415 Available rebates for April
Mar 30, 2005 (9:16 am)
Hi everyone. I have been reading the forums for a while now to see if I should purchase a loaded 2005 Mazda6 sedan. I was wondering if anyone knows about any rebates that will be available in April here in New York or rather the United States, since the rebates currently available are set to expire on March 31st. Thanks everyone

I just bought a '05 Mazda6. I had the S-plan plus all the rebates. Financed thru Mazda and asked the dealer about going thru my credit union, and the finance person at the dealer said I had to wait 4 months to transfer it to my credit union!!
Is that true?
