If you want to save money, then go for the 2004 6s 5 door(sports package is already included in this model). It's the exact same car as a 2005 except you get a 5 speed instead of a 6 speed auto, if that's what you want. Same good looks and the same V6 engine. The 2004 is also priced around $900 cheaper than a 2005. If you go to the mazda.com web site and click on inventory, they will search for you in Ohio. So far, I see their is seven 2004 models left. 6 of them at Mazda Direct in Columbus. Fortunately, 5 of them are silver(same as mine). If you get one for MSRP $25000 and with a $6500 automatic rebate(w/ autoshow discount) you are looking at around $18500 or less for a Mazda 6s with a V6 engine.

Msmith4 said "I did buy an O4 Wagon (auto, sport package) in Edmonton back in late Feb. OTD price (including GST) was $25,990.00"
Sounds like an excellent price. A few questions:
- Did you buy the GS V6?
- How many kilometres at the time of purchase? Was this a demo by any chance?
- Was there any PST along with the GST?
- Do you remember the Freight/PDI charges?

The price sounds pretty good, may be hard to get lower on an '05. I bought my Mazda from Mazda Direct in Columbus in October; had one bad experience in the middle of negotiations but otherwise positive; they have a lot of inventory to choose from.

#1073 of 2415 Tempted to get a 2004
Mar 31, 2005 (10:33 am)
I'm on the fence on whether to spring for a 2004 6i 5-door (Volcanic Red). A dealership nearby has one loaded (Bose, Moonroof, Security Package, Leather) for just over $25K. After negotiation, I'm guessing $18-20K would be a good range.
HOWEVER, the car has a stickshift- which I've always wanted to drive. But with the rebates ending today (and so tempting), and moving cross-country in a few weeks, I'm wondering whether to spring for it.
If I knew the rebates would stay the same- or get better- next month, and I had another couple of days to think, I'd feel better considering it. After all, I've been wanting a 6 for the past 3 years- and the Volcanic Red (I believe)was on the Tokyo Auto Show Atenza I saw back in 2002 that began my love for this car- and this one has everything I would want.
So should I do it today, or will the rebates continue?

About the stickshift, I should elaborate. I've learned about 2 years ago, but I quit out of frustration (with myself, my mom teaching me, and fear of ruining her BMW) although I was starting to get the hang of it. So this would be my first stickshift, and I wonder if I could get the hang of a Mazda stick- especially before making a 1700 mile trip.

No, not on financing at all. The sales guy has been great, but one of the managers really tried to pressure me to buy THAT DAY OR ELSE. When I wouldn't budge and walked out, another sales manager called me at home and apologized and said the deal was still good. I told them up front I didn't want any extended warranties, rustproofing, etc. and the finance guy just wrote up the straight ticket. So it all ended up very positive.

I'm looking at this private sale of a hatch version below.
The guy bought the car 2 months ago for $32,000 - there's $31k left to pay.
I can take over the 0% payments, but still to me the cars not worth that much - mind you in taking over the payments I don't pay GST apparently.
I feel like offering him no more than 26k but then he'll have to pitch in 5k out of his pocket, which I can't see him being too happy about.
I think it was you who mentioned the madness of car buying - what a circus! :0)
