#1750 of 2415 08' Mazda Sedan 4D, deal or not?
Aug 26, 2008 (10:17 pm)
One dealer at Dallas area offer me the following prices for 08' Mazda Sedan 4D:
1. $17,000 (OTD) for 2008 Mazda MAZDA6 i Sport, one-time cash payment.
2. $ 15,035 (OTD) for 2008 Mazda MAZDA3 i Sport (auto transmission), 0%APR & 0%DOWN. (manual window)
3. $ 16,984 (OTD) for 2008 Mazda MAZDA3 i Touring, 0%APR & 0%DOWN.
4. $ 17,750 (OTD) for 2008 Mazda MAZDA3 i Touring VE, 0%APR& 0%DOWN.
Actually, I prefer MAZDA6. Is that possible that I can get better deal in town. For example $17000 with 0% APR or even less than $17000 with 0% APR? Any thoughts? How about the other 3 offers for MAZDA3? I will buy this week, really need help. Thanks a lot!!!

17000 OTD with your taxes, dealer fees, title, etc is a very good price. Probably around 15,500 to 15,800 I would guess depending on your dealer fees. In many areas of the country these are hard to get as they are gone.
I just sat in the an '08 Mazda3 again this morning during an oil change on my '07 Mazda6 and I am glad I got the I4 Mazda6.

Thanks m6user! How do you think the price for the other three MAZDA3? Good deal or still negotiable? Thanks

I really don't follow the prices of the Mazda3 that much and it would depend a lot on how important the financing rate is to you. I always pay cash for my cars so I don't really pay a lot of attention to finance rates. I'm sure you realize that usually when they offer 0% financing you will pay more for the car and vice-versa if you pay cash.
You would probably be better off posting your Mazda3 questions over on the Mazda3 forum. But if you're not in a hurry, there are probably people that can give some advice here as well. I would be glad to try to help but, like I said, I'm really not up on the 3.
#1754 of 2415 time to upgrade my 6?
Oct 11, 2008 (1:44 pm)
Took my 05 mazda6 in for an oil change today and after drooling a bit over the new 6 in the showroom, I ended taking one for a drive. Very nice, comfy ride... very good fit and finish. Not quite as sharp handling wise compared to my older 6, but then again it handles bumps better and is quieter. Plus back seat room is huge compared to mine. For a v-6 grand touring minus my trade in, the 09 would end up being around 16k which seems pretty fair. By the way, I went to Ron Tonkin in Portland and these guys were great to deal with. Super easy and very nice guys which I can't say about any other car buying experience I've had!
But... no manual tranny and no hatchback which my current 6 has and which I love. Thing is, I really like my current 6, but I've been getting the sense that a new, less edgy car is in order for my life now. If they had a hatch, I'd have a new car in my driveway now, but they don't. My mom just bought a car in this class a month ago and we drove many cars. I drove the Accord, Altima, Azera, Sonata, Camry (yuck!), and an 08 Maxima (the car my mom ended up getting). The 09 mazda6 is the winner in my eyes ... the Maxima comes in a close 2nd, but I prefer the 6. Besides, I'm not going to get the same car as my mom!
Anyways... I'm amazed I'm even considering this. Went in for an oil change and almost bought a car.... What do you think?

#1756 of 2415 I Love My New 09 Mazda 6
Oct 12, 2008 (9:19 pm)
I just got my 2009 Mazda 6 s Touring w/Convience Pkg.The whole process was smooth. This is what I paid:
$26,700 OTD(Out The Door) Price
$1,000 Private Launch cash
Total: $25,700 OTD
I got a great deal. My whole family loves my car. They all want to drive it. I love the head lights. You can see everything thats in front of you. The handling is great around tight corners. The brakes, sound system, and everything else is great on this car. My advice would be to get the v6. You'll have more fun with it. Trust Me

I'd like to trade my 07 Mazda3 hatch for a 2008 Mazda6 hatch. Does anyone know if there are many new 2008s around still? The Mazda website search is not very user-friendly when you want to look beyond your immediate area. Thanks.

2008 hatch was hard to find 4 months ago. Not many are produced and they were relatively unpopular in the U.S. That may have changed with many
Americans appreciating a hatchback with the dumping of their larger vehicles. The 6 hatch was huge, you could almost load a refrigerator in it. One of the most useful 4 door sport sedans and virtually indisinguishable from the regular 4 door sedan.
Too bad it is discontinued for 09-

Yes, another vote for the hatch. It is too bad they are not offering that body style to the American public. Even though sales numbers haven't been near as a impressive as sedans, I'm sure Mazda sold their money's worth, more than breaking even. I realize it's all about profit, and that's why they are still putting design dollars into roomier crossover SUV's and horsepower races instead of efficient cool "premium" hatches and sporty wagons with an emphasis on fun factor/MPG.
And now the new model's out without offering the versatile hatch body, while it's likely more buyers than before would seriously consider or are looking for a sedan body with a concealed hatch offering premium trim and either a 4 or 6 cylinder engine than there were with the previous generation 6, but they aren't being offered at the wrong time to develop a following. I'd love an iGT 4 cylinder hatch. I don't need the extra power of two more cylinders for a car like this, especially with the adequate power the 4 offers. But I want "premium" amenities like all auto windows and moonroof, quality interior, and great handling all in a durable and efficient package. In other words someone made the decision that buyers should look at VW, or pricy BMW or Volvos if that's what they value. But with my perception of their questionable long-term reliability, I'm just not comfortable plunking down $30 grand on a squarish VW and have the windows tinted. That's just not me, and likely only certain buyers loyal to European brands will go that way.
I do think it's funny how Mazda can design the swoopy body lines of a hatch but only offer a fixed trunk door model, both seemingly to suite American tastes.
