#2111 of 2415 Re: Is this Good price for 2009 Mazda 6 i GT? [lrota]

2009 was the only year that the Grand Touring was available with the 6-speed manual, so it's a rare find! If you liked the car and it has all the features you want, it's definitely worth consideration, in my opinion!
You probably know this already, but the Mazda6 i and Mazda3 s have share the same 2.5L 4-cylinder and 6-speed manual transmission. The fuel economy and acceleration is very similar for both models.
For comparison sake, a 2010 Mazda3 s GT 4-door with no options has an Edmunds TMV price of $21,293. The 2009 MZ6 GT has everything standard on the MZ3 plus several additional features that are optional or unavailable on the MZ3-
Auto-dimming rearview mirror w/ HomeLink remote, Advanced Keyless Entry & Start System and Anti-theft alarm system (extra cost options on the MZ3) AND power front passenger seat and Blind Spot Monitor System (BSM) which aren't offered on the MZ3.
The TMV price for a USED 2009 Mazda6 i GT 6MT is around $20,800 (Dealer Retail), so the price of $19,350 seems like a very good deal. It's also $2000 less than a Mazda3 s GT 4-door.
If I were in the same situation and the car has all the features I wanted AND I could live with the interior/exterior color combination, I'd go for it!

OK...you probably wont believe this but they accepted $17.9K for a new 2009 M6 i GT with 6spd manual with 300 miles on it.. It sat on the lot for 10 months...I was more than happy to take the manual transmission! Very happy with it.

Wow - I would have bought it for that, and I'm not in the market! When my '05 iSport is a little older, I will have to look for one of these used as my preference is 4cyl+MT+Leather, which can't be had past the '09 iGT. Drive it in good health!

TO IROTA: I mis-spoke when I said you must have the Touring Plus model. I thought you bought a 2010 model, which as you already know doesn't offer the 6 speed manual for 2010 models, but DID offer it for 2009 models.
You really researched out the product line, and I commend you for it.
Rarely do I find someone who really shops with knowledge, versus the norm who shop with only emotion,, and that is why auto salesmen have bad reps.
I learned something from you, and thanks!! mc

You got a STEAL on it, to say the least! The KBB trade-in value on it is about $18,300, so you got an amazing deal! You actually have equity in your new car, rather than the dreaded "$xxxx depreciation when you drive it off the lot"....I'm envious!
What color is it? I'm just curious. Congratulations!

HOST: Who the heck at Edmunds is responsible for the model of vehicle that is pictured on the right side of the page. They are absolutely just all over the place. Here we are in the current prices paid thread for Mazda6 and there is a 2011 Mazda pictured to the right. That model will probably not be available for sale for another 6 months. It's a wonder there have been 0 reviews.
On the Infiniti G37 prices paid there is still a picture of the 2008 G37 up along with a 2009. The '10s have been on sale for several months.
Just really curious as to this total lack of consistency.

The banner across that 2011 Mazda6 actually says it is not expected to launch until spring 2011.

I'm sure some sort of search engine matches up post content and discussion title with the ads (and, make no mistake..that is an ad from Edmunds... hoping to generate more page views).
How does it work?
Does that help?

Thanks for the reply.
Does that help? Oh yes, now it's clear as mud. I guess I didn't realize it was an ad. I actually thought it was supposed to be a helpful shortcut to access reviews and info of the new cars we are discussing here in this forum. I'm sure when you click through to Edmunds there will be boatloads of new and exciting info on the 2011 Mazda6.
#2120 of 2415 Mazda6 iGT pricing?
Apr 19, 2010 (10:16 am)
My girlfriend is interested in a Mazda6 iGT (trading up from a 2000 Corolla, and she is actually still considering a Prius). She would want the technology package but no Nav (she likes her Garmin just fine). We live in San Jose CA. I see from this site the MSRP including destination of $28,815, Invoice of $26,432, and TMV of $26,901. We test drove one yesterday and the salesman seemed very eager to cut us a deal on it. He mentioned $2000 rebate -or- 0% financing. Ha anyone recently shopped for a Mazda6, and if so, what kind of deal could you get? Thanks.
