#1119 of 2415 rebates on 2004 mazda6
May 16, 2005 (5:30 pm)
According to edmunds, "up to $4000" plus another $1000 if you finance with Mazda.
After I saw this, I spent some time tracking down 6cyl, manual trans.
I didn't care too much about body style (slight preference toward wagon). Preferred a raging deal to lots of options--really, would have been happy with a base model.
I found a hatchback in Austin, TX and a loaded sedan in CT, both on autotrader. Was seriously considering the hatchback, but the fellow in TX told me the rebate was $3000 plus $1000--you get the extra $1000 for the wagon.
I then found a redfire 5 speed wagon with beige interior 2 hrs away in Charlotte, NC through a labor intensive process of searching the 10 closest dealers to nearby cities in GA, TN, SC, and NC on the mazdausa website. It has the luxury package (leather, power drivers seat, etc), fog lights, wheel locks.
Plenty of automatic wagons, but this was the only 5 speed I found. Bought it yesterday for $17242 plus tax, tag, fees for a total of just under $19000 out the door. That was 200 under invoice in addition to $5000 in rebates : ) I got 200 under invoice by protesting the $500 "doc. fee" that they stated they could not budge for legal reasons.
This is the most fun vehicle I've owned! Happy hunting!

That is an excellent deal, congratulations. I can not believe that there are still 2004 model still around.
There is a dealer in my area advertising that they still have 3 2004 wagons. Prices for an automatic with Bose stereo are $18,450. So you did real well at basically $17,542 with leather.
I have had my sport wagon for about a month and 1500 miles and I love it. I have no idea why they are not moving. The price certainly seems right.

Forgive me for joining the converstion late and just bardging in and asking questions, but thats what I am gonna do, LOL.
Where does it say what incentives are available for the 2004 Mazda6's? I don't see it on edmunds or mazdas site, I assume I missed it. But if it is indeed 3000+1000, thats sweet. I know there are 2 mazda dealers close to me, one has plenty of 2004 6's left. I think around 60 it says online, the other doesn't appear to have any, seems weird to me. But if I can find one I want and get 4000 in rebates. I just may have to jump on it. They did make the 5 door in '04 right? And are there any significant changes from the 04 to 05 model years? Also, and I am sure I am pressing my luck, but I don't suppose you could get s plan pricing(I qualify for it) as well as the reabtes could you?

#1124 of 2415 What about the warranty?
May 18, 2005 (2:01 pm)
Okay I posted in the other forum, still nor response yet. But here is my next question, does the warranty start from date of purchase or date of manufactur, or something else?
Also how long is the warranty, edmunds says 4 year 50,000 mile bumper to bumper and powertrain. But I have seen 2 other websites saying its 3 years 50,000 miles for both.
#1125 of 2415 4 years/50000mi

bumper to bumper. Clock starts ticking when you take delivery.

That is an awesome deal! I'd love to find one like that in the fall when i am shopping. One question, do you know if the wagon has any tow capacity?

I'm fairly sure that Mazda says none of the 6's are allowed to tow. I found that strange because every car that i've ever owned had at least a 1000lb rating for towing.
#1128 of 2415 Found 2004 sportwagon
May 25, 2005 (10:53 pm)
new, automatic, fully loaded for 20k. Good deal? Also looking at new 2004 Passat GLS wagon for 21,200. I like the quality of the interior on the Passat and the acceleration and handling on the Mazda6. Consumer Reports doesn't give high marks for reliability to either one so that isn't a tie breaker. Anything else I should consider?
