Mazda MAZDA6, Hatchback, Sedan, Wagon

$20k seems about all I'd pay. The wagons aren't moving well I guess. They had one locally here with a $4,200 discount coupon they mailed me. Cars all lose value quickly, so spending $25 on a car which in a couple three year will be worth half that much doesn't make too much sense from a dollar invested stand point. Most I would ever pay for any regular car, like a Mazda or Ford, would be $20K. Used cars are so much better a deal, unless you get in on these really big discounts. They have sold Mazda6 cars for as low as $15,999 on close-outs and this current year, I have seen $16,999. They are great cars, but not worth $25K or more, out the door price. If I get a 2005 Mazda6 it will be 4 cylinder and a stick. Plenty of fun and cheaper on gas.
#1162 of 2415 Dealers with internet pricing?

I'm familiar with Fitzgerald, who has dealerships in the D.C. area and Florida. They post actual, out-the-door prices, on their website. (Although their Mazda dealer just informed me that they include the $1,000 financing rebate in their prices, which I think is misleading . . . if you're paying cash or don't qualify for M.A.C. financing, then you can't get that particular rebate . . . but that's another story.)
Can anyone direct me to any other Mazda dealers that list actual, fixed prices on their websites? Location doesn't matter.

It's your lucky day! I found the following dealership that actually posted prices!
Each new car has a web page that shows the MSRP, the pre-rebate selling price, and the post-rebate price. The dealer has a 2005 Mazda6s with everything I want (leather, auto, moonroof) for $24302 after $1500 rebate. Gosh--if I get Mazda financing, that will go down to $23302! But I don't like the color
Edit--LOL! Get a free barbecue accessory set "just for stopping by" the dealership! If only the car had an on-board grill . . .

Does anyone know if Mazda has any type of Customer Loyalty rebates? And if so, are they stackable?

Thanks . . . their pricing appears to be competitive. More shopping to do!

I've received a quote on a Mazda6 Sportwagon, with luxury package, moonroof and Bose package. Msrp is 28,295. My price would be 23,500. With 6.9% financing. Is this a good deal? Never had a mazda. Seems steep compared to some other brands like honda or toyota. Does anyone have an opinion, should I counter offer or keep looking? I'm also concerned about the Ford Taurus engine. Kind of old technology. What do you say?

I'd say you're generalizing a bit too much by saying that the Mazda6 uses a Taurus engine. They both offer an engine based on the same Ford Duratec 3.0 (which evolved from a Porsche engineered design), but has been modified for higher performance by both Mazda and Jaguar in their applications (added VVT, more HP). Furthermore, Duratecs (of which there are several varieties) seem to be generally regarded as well designed, reliable engines and I doubt the 3.0 V6 design which bears that name could be considered as "old technology" since it has only been around for a few years. If you're interested in more details, Wikipedia has a nice writeup on the Duratec:
At any rate, if you were to drive both a Duratec 3.0 equipped Taurus and Mazda6, you would know right away how different the Mazda6 version of the engine really is, and the differences are good!

this site is offering mazda 3's more than $1000 under MSRP. I wasn't aware of any special financing rebates on the 3 and best I have got has been about $250 under MSRP. what gives? ">

Just checked price for 2005 Mazda6 4dr Sport Wagon s Grand Touring carsdirect. With incentives and destination charge, with roof side rails, rear spoiler, body color sport grill (?), rear bumper step plate and wheel locks the price-$24,200. Why with those options? They round the price to a nice number

I think you're saying I can do better. With the 2006's coming soon, I think I can get it lower. Apr not good either. Nissan and toyota and honda all have better aprs.
