I got 2 Questions:
I am planning to buy a mazda, so here are my options:
Option 1: Mazda6, 2006, V4, the cheapest of the Models, but I am gonna have them add Leather Seats and Rear Spoiler, out of the door price (including taxes and all that junk) is $19K
Option 2: Mazda6, 2005, V6, its the 5 Door Model, it comes with every extra posibble, moonroof, leather seats, etc, etc. Its a Demo car, so it has about 6k miles.
The out the door price is 24.5k (Which I am hoping to bring down to at least 22.5K)
Are these good prices for these cards?
#1403 of 2415 Good offer on an '06??
Dec 10, 2005 (4:57 pm)
I just came from a dealership today in the pensacola, FL area. I was looking at a 2006 Mazda6, V6 with the sport package, bose/moonroof package and the 6spd-auto transmission. The MSRP was $26,820. They offered me the car at invoice of $24,566 minus the $3000 in cash back. The out-the-door price would be $23,569.79 Any thoughts??

i think i'm starting to get used to the tranny now, though sometimes i still have probs getting into third smoothly (strange since in my honda, getting into third smoothly was a given). sux about your ck engine light...keep us posted as to what the prob was.
one thing to add to my experience so far...just did a thorough detailing of my car today (wash, clay bar, wax) and found a huge amount of black tar-like spots all over the car (my car is a dark grey and was not very visible...perhaps i was too attached to my "baby" to see the blemishes). the dealership i bought the car from had recently had the road paved in front of it so maybe this is where these came from. use goo gone and this seemed to take these spots off very nicely. after the wax and clay bar (if you haven't used a clay bar before, it's amazing! makes the finish so much smoother by removing contaminates from the paint) all is well. the longer i have this car, the more i'm appreciating it's handling.

Where'd you get that deal? I'd love to swing something like that in my town.
#1406 of 2415 How much for a demo?
Dec 26, 2005 (12:10 pm)
I am looking at a demo '05 Copper on black 6i 5 door, manual trans with the Bose and Leather package, MSRP is 25,055. The car has 38XX miles on it (my salesman drove the car for 3600 of those) in good condition, car does have a small dimple on the hood, a door ding on the door edge (paint chipped) and a few scratches on the interior.
I am thinking of offering $16,500 (including 3500 rebates) due to the condition and demo status. Am I lowballing far too much?

personally, i don't think so. some dealers are offering 8000 off all 05's now, and i think they have added some special financing as well. in the end, this car is used (you don't know how they drove it and there is damage on the car). basically, you're asking for 500 off a brand new car w/ no damage or miles. but the thing is, that copper color is really rare now. it's a sweet color that makes the car stand out, especially on the 5 door. that would have been my first choice had it been available when i bought mine a few weeks ago. by the way, i got mine for 7k off of msrp w/ 300 in accessories thrown in (looking back on it, i think i could have done a bit better). i would keep an eye on mazda ads in the paper of the nearest major city, and bring in copies of the deals to show the dealership with this car. this may help you get the best possible price. anyway, good luck. and if you do decide to get it, you'll love the storage space of the five door. plus the handling is pretty sweet to. as you can tell, i'm pretty happy with my purchase.

Went to the dealer today for 2006 Mazda6 i sport with 5-speed sport AT and wheel locks.

Edmunds invoice: $21,518 (with destination and regional adjustment)
The dealer offered $21,000(out of door and without $1000 MAC and $500 gas card). Dealer wants me to respond by Jan 2.
Could you please give me some suggestions for this price?

Have you checked out the pricing on carsdirect.com? Also isn't there a $1500 rebate on the Mazda6 right now? Unless it's an issue of whether or not you'll get this rebate in time, I wouldn't let the friggin dealer pushing you to buy by a certain date. In norther cali, carsdirect quotes a V6 Mazda 6s Sport with the Bose, Sunroof, etc. package for about $21.3K.

Thanks for your reply. Forget to mention that the $21,000 is after the $1500 rebate but before MAC $1000 and $500 free gas card.
Also checked carsdirect.com. The price it quotes for a same model in our area is $19268 (after 1500 incentive, 500 MAC and 500 bonus). I don't understand why they provide a different MAC and where this 500 bonus comes from.
In the previous message, I didn't make it clear that it is not that we have to respond by Jan 2. We actually went ot the dealer today and got a agreement for 21,000 (outofdoor price, will be 20,000 after MAC). The payment is subject to finance and test-drive, which means that if we are not satisfied with the test-drive, we don't need to make the payment.
So, what do you think? If the deal sounds not good, can we refuse this price?
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a pretty decent deal if $21K "out of door price" means including TTL. I think the 500 bonus you see on carsdirect.com is the $500 gas card, which I believe you can take as cash rebate instead of a gas card. Although I also don't know why the MAC rebate is different. I'm a little confused by the numbers you gave me, but $20K after TTL seems pretty good.
