thanks to Joe Myers Mazda Houston, TX!
I took on the task of shopping for a new car in Dec after a total loss accident. I was overwhelmed with all the choices out there. Camry, Sonata, Accord, Malibu, Altima all with similar prices. I visited about 20 dealerships and really studied the market to avoid getting the wrong car or paying too much.
Purchased a 2009 Mazda6 i Touring AT with Conv Package on Dec 31 2008. The MSRP was 24885, INV 22853, and TMV 24594. My first offer of 2,250 below invoice, 22635*, was accepted. No sunroof.
* They wrote the deal up at 22,335 + 299 for 1 yr. paintless dent/ding repair. I didn't want this service, but its cost was built in free. What I didn't know that day is that you can cancel this within 30 days and get your $299 back! The ding repair doesn't include collision damage. It is limited to 4" or less of painted surfaces damage, doesn't include: paint repair, chrome, glass, areas with lines or curves, nor areas with reinforcement behind the body panels. Huh? That's the whole car.
Sent in the cancellation for ding repair today and this will reduce my purchase price to $2550 below MSRP and they included the 0%, 0 down, 0 payments for 90 days.
I believe it helps to make an offer on a vehicle on the last day of the month.
I think the leather trimmed cloth seats look great. It gets hot here in Houston and the cloth seating area should be a plus. The DSC, Blind Spot Monitor, auto Rain Sensor, push button start, no touch keyless entry are all features that blow away the Camry.
The sliding armrest is funtional and comfortable to use. The leather wrapped steering wheel had a good feel.
At night the instrument panel and center console lighting transform the car with a futuristic look. If you are thinking of buying a Mazda6 you must test drive this car at night.
Bluetooth was easy to pair with my phone. Controls are on the wheel. The system is voice responsive and it works great even though I haven't done the voice training.
I was looking for a car with a futuristic style and found the Mazda6.

I've gotten a quote on a 2009 M6 iTouring, black cherry with beige, conv., bose/moonroof, MSRP $26645, was a demo and has 1600 miles on it. I am a current Mazda owner, so the below price does include the loyalty bonus, but not the low APR. The price quoted is $21,561 + $270 doc fee + TTL.
That appears to be $100 below invoice, then minus $2500 in rebates/incentives (including loyalty).
Should I jump on it, or can I do better?

Im looking for the base 09 Mazda 6. I'm getting the car under the S plan.
Went to Maple Shade Mazda in Turnersville, NJ
The dealer info doesnt add up to me. The invoice I got off of Edmunds said $17,601 plus destination charge. The salesman said that Edmunds was innacurate and the invoice was $19,739. He said the $19,739 included $670 destination fee, a $253 Philadelphia assessment fee (he said all Mazda's have this, its an advertisement fee, I have never heard of it) and a $87 level 2 emission fee (He said NJ requires it... idk). That is $2,138 more than the invoice... That soulds way off to me.
The S-plan is usually the invoice and a 2% discount right? maybe I got the wrong info.
Here's the numbers he gave me
MSRP: 21,020 (Edmunds said it was $18,550)
Invoice including the fees, $19,739 (thats what he said is the lowest he could go) Edmunds said $17,601
Cap reducation of 903.00 (I dont know what that is...)
Term: 36 months
Money factor: .0002300
Cash Due: $1600 (that includes $750 of my money, the 1st month payment, and $850 lease support from Mazda) But now that I just added it.... that doesnt make sense.. It would have to be $1,893.41
Monthly payment 293.41, that does not include gap insurance
He said Taxes are $762.28 , we are 7% in NJ
The it says fees/Lessor $403.30 - he said that was the tags.
Am I getting ripped off or is he actually right? I just dont understand how he can say Edmunds is wrong.

I just received (1/10/09) an email from Maple Shade Mazda, maybe it will help with your negotiations. Here it is:
"All New 2009 Mazda 6 Special Supplier Pricing -- You Pay What We Pay!
Maple Shade Mazda is, for a limited time only, offering NO HASSLE, NO HAGGLE, Special Supplier Pricing - PLUS - $1,000 Current Mazda Owner Loyalty Incentive.
Your $1,000 Loyalty cash can be combined with 0% APR financing or a Fantastic Lease Option."
I paid $1,000 under invoice w/0% back in November. I was not a Mazda owner at the time. I used Edmund's site for invoice pricing and added the francise fee to it. Other dealerships in and around Philly also had the fee. I also added the emissions fee provided on Edmunds. I had a good experience at the dealership and can recommend you include them on your dealership list. Good luck, it's a great car!

Was the 1,000 under invoice the OTD price. They said they can not budge under invoice plus the fees.
you can email me at tamzab123hotmail.com
Im supposed to go look at it again tonight... but I heard people get the S-plan at invoice -2% and Im over that for sure....
Did you use the S-plan?

My neighbor is Manager of Naperville Mazda in IL..
I just factory ordered a 09 Mazda6 iGT w/All Accessories from him to be delivered the last week of March.
I did S-Plan...S-Plan is at Invoice plus Destination ($670.00), Plus a Regional Fee (IL Fee is $336.00)=S-Plan Price..You do not get 2% under...You could get Dealer Cash, which I am getting ($500-$1000) and an S-Plan Rebate (You will know the Rebate $$ (If there is one), when they put your S-Plan Pin in.
You also can get Public Rebates and any Special Financing.
They have to show you the invoice, which shows S-Plan Price.
Hope this helps!!!
