I am about to buy a 2004 Mazda6 Sports Wagon Manual-- with leather, but no 6 CD changer, moonroof, bose, etc.. My dealer is asking $18,880 (this is after the $4,000 rbate, but I think I may be paying too much -- Edmunds lists this same car for $18415 and WITH 6 CD changer, $18,826. I like this dealer a LOT Mazda in Cary, NC-- he is teling me I am paying $750 over invoice. Advice? Thanks Time is of the essence!

I am negotiating for the above-- very nice dealer (Cary, NC) is iffering me a price of $18,880 (w/out all the taxes, etc) for this car with leather interior, etc.. but NO 6 CD changer--he tells me I am paying $750 over invoice. Edmunds listed this same car as going for $18,425; with 6cd in dash: $18,826... Any wiggle room you know of? I need to make a decision quickly-- thanks!!!

Try to find the exact invoice price of the car thru edmunds with all the installed options. There is a rebate upto $4000 on this car. So try get it for a price less than or equal to invoice - $4K.
I got my wagon few weeks back for $4.5K less than invoice, refer to my posting #881.

I bought my 6s sedan from this same dealer last spring. I was using S-plan, so I did not negotiate the price. I think you should be able to find the exact invoice price and pay that (or maybe $250 over, but not $750 over) then subtract the reabte. They have a very high doc fee (~$375) as well, so I would try to just pay invoice. They'll get their money from the sale...

I am negotiating a deal right now for $500 off invoice. This car is a manual, bose, side airbags, roof rack, moonroof and the homelink with compass. Total price after the $4000 rebate in california will be $19750 plus tax/liscense.
I test drove a Saab, Subaru, and an Audi. For the money, the Mazda is far better..
For someone who does not care about the leather package, they are advertising a total cost of $16799 for an automatic. That's a good deal.
My thinking regarding that person and the dealer demo, way overpriced when you can get a new one with 50 miles for less money!!

Sounds like a good, if not great, price to me. Please keep us informed about your purchase and dealer experience. I'm 5 mi. away & interested in a 6s.
I looked at used MPV's last yr. & ended up in Raleigh buying new. Good price & good dealer. Cary turned me off with their price negotiations, but that was then.
Maybe I'll see you there before the end of the month.
#894 of 2415 2003 Mazda 6i pricing
Dec 27, 2004 (9:56 pm)
I'm interested in a 2003 M6i 4-door sedan from an Internet Auto Dealer in Reno, NV. The car is silver, automatic, ABS, basic power options. The mileage is 18,000. The dealer says retail is about $18500 and they bought it wholesale for $15,700. I'm thinking this is pretty steep for a 2003 model with 18,000 miles. I was thinking about offering $13,500 to start. Is this too low for a car like this, and if so, what should I think about spending for an M6i with these specs.

to me - that seems way too high. If they paid $15,700 for it wholesale - they will probably lose money on the car.
looking at the invoice price of the car at about $17,500, with about $3000 in rebates - FOR A NEW ONE - I would say that you shouldn't pay over the $13,000 you are initially going to offer. I am sure you could get a new one for about $14,500.

Similar equipped 6i are listed for sale here in California for a no haggle price of 12,900 They are rental return from Hertz with about 22k miles. I think your price is more than fair.
