Conventional finance rebates are not always the same offered on lease/balloon scenarios.
The 2006 Mazda6 has a $2,500 factory rebate and a $500 MAC Bonus(only if financed conventionally through Mazda American Credit). This accounts for the $3,000 you speak of.
The 2006 Mazda6 has a $1,500 MAC Lease/AVP rebate and an additional $500 MAC Lease/AVP Bonus(only if you enter into a Special MAC Lease/AVP). This means you only of receive a total of $2,000 for lease/balloon scenarios.
Always ask questions regarding different programs.
#1459 of 2415 New Mazda 6 S Grand Touring
Jun 29, 2006 (8:21 am)
Just thought I'd share my information. Yesterday we bought a new Mazda 6, sedan, s Grand Touring, with navi and a few other minor accessories. The price was $24,831 (before TTL), which is 3,000 below invoice. I took the invoice numbers from Edmunds, and they matched the dealer's invoice to a dollar (he showed it to me).
The discount comes from $2,000 rebate for consumer, $500 dealer incentive and $500 MAC bonus, if financed through Mazda (you can refinance it if you can get better rate - that's what I'll do). By the way, the rate for me is 8.1%.
The dealership is Faulkner Mazda in Philadelphia. Overall, the experience was very positive. The salesrep was good and clearly knew his stuff. They didn't try to push any rustproofing, paintsealing, striping, or anything like that. I would definitely recommend the place, and especially the sales guy. He was very upfront with everything.
We also checked out Nissan (Altima and Maxima), Subaru (Legacy and Outback), Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Acura (TL and TSX). We wanted 6 cyl and leather, so we were only testing the upper trims. Not surprisingly, Acuras were the most appealing cars in this list. TSX is a bit underpowered, but TL is great. Unfortunately it is also quite expensive.
I would have bought Subaru Legacy, but my wife wanted something different this time (we already have one Subie).
And Mazda was the best of the rest overall, in our opinion.
So if you are thinking of buying Mazda 6, the time is now - I think that 3K below invoice is a given, and they probably could potentially go even lower. I now wish I'd started lower.
But the rebates expire on July 5th.

Used this forum a lot, so thought I would add this after my purchase...
Mazda 6i, base trim, plus:
* Automatic gear
* Convenience package
* Curtain airbags
* Wheel locks
MSRP - $22,210
Got a price that reflects $500 dealer reduction (not taxed) and $2000 rebate (taxed) and Manhattan 8.375% tax = $19,463
Paid OTD = $19463 + $210 DMV, title = $19,673
Paid cash, so there was no extra profit from lease, finance, etc.

$300 dealer fee? Not a bad deal other than this dealer fee.
#1464 of 2415 6i with A/T, Cal emmisions
Jul 03, 2006 (5:54 pm)
$15,495 OTD. Dealer tried to trick me with a "Secure Etch Silent Alarm Theft Deterrent System" which actually is, allegedly, the VIN etched into all the windows and a $2500 policy if car is ever stolen and not recovered (30 days). They almost got away with it having me believing I was getting an alarm system. Car would have been $16,090 had I paid for that nonsense.
Anyone else heard of this?

#1465 of 2415 Price to "Kick Off" the Negotiations?
Jul 04, 2006 (4:57 pm)
What would be a good starting point for talking price with a salesperson on a Mazda6 i, 5-Door Sport Model (Manual Tranmission) with the Bose Audio/Moonroof Pkg?
We will be starting our negotiations with our salesperson tomorrow morning intending to get things wrapped up as quickly as possible to take advantage of the rebates and didn't want to start off "too high."
The price I come up with considering invoice and rebates is $19,191, but this seems too high based on what other people on the board have said. Any advice anyone out there could offer would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!

we received a price is $20,600 for the same vehicle, but with automatic. that's $19,700 without the automatic.
i thought the price would be a bit lower too, but we got quotes from 2 dealers in the CT area and that was the best they could do. basically, on a $24,900 MSRP the dealer knocked of about $1,300 and then $3000 in rebates.
on a $25k car, dealer taking off about 5% seems right though.
