#345 of 536 2005 Mazda MPV Quotes
Oct 02, 2005 (6:55 pm)
I got 2 quotes from different Mazda dealer in San Diego, CA
Please let me know if there are fair prices or I should ask them more.
Dealer #1 Silver LX (Fully loaded) $22,800 (Tax included)
Dealer #2 LXs (Fullyloaded) Blue, black or silver.
Invoice price and 3000 Rebate and 1000 manager special discount.
If I use Mazda finace, Both of them will give 1000 finace rebate.
We have been to Toyot dealer to check SIenna and Highlander, but they don't give us any discount. All they can give us is Toyota factory rebate.
I like Toyota car better but I guess I should buy Mazda due to our tight budget.
Please give me any advise about the Mazda MPV.

#347 of 536 Financing through Mazda
Oct 02, 2005 (9:36 pm)
I have another question.
All Mazda dealer told me if I finance through Mazda, they give us $1,000 extra rebate.
I want to pay by cash so I told them I don't need it.
Then, the salesperson told me if I just finance for 3 months and then I re-finance so I may lose only $ 60 but I still get $1,000 extra rebate.
Have any body ever tried this re-finance?
Did you pay everything after 3 months?
I don't want to end up paying so much interest.
I prefer paying by Cash but if I will be able to re-finance in 3 months, I think I should try...????
Also, Mocha 46, I'd like to know your dealer in San Diego.
Can you give us any information about your dealer, please.

Your salesperson was correct..
Many people that would otherwise pay cash, have financed with Mazda Credit to get the rebate, then paid off the loan after 90 days..
Of course, they are hoping you don't pay it off...

Dealer #2 sounds the best if the $1000 manager discount is off of invoice. Finance thru Mazda and thats $5,000 below invoice. Can't beat that with a stick.
The Mazda MPV is just as good a minivan as the Sienna (for my needs)...plus you'll be saving around $7,000 by buying the Mazda MPV. The Highlander is overrated and overpriced in my opinion.

Thank you for your advice everyone!
I will go to Mazda and try to get the best deal!
#351 of 536 Top Model
Oct 30, 2005 (9:26 pm)
Just bought the high end model, Loaded. Leather, DVD, Moon Roff, power sliding doors, rear a/c and heat, 4 seasons etc. Sticker MSRP was 32K, paid 25K something. A few hundred bucks under invoce, plus 4 cash back. I figure we will have this van for a while so why not load up. I was temped to get the low end model, since they are selling for about 17K, but for once in my life I got what I really wanted. The price was not to bad. Plus it is nice.
The only I dont like is the front flip up table. I hate that. Why not put a console in there? I may try and take it out so I can buy an after market one. I like to keep snacks for the kids so I need the space.

Congrats on your new MPV covert. I believe Mazda put the "front flip up table" where it is so the driver or passenger could have access to the middle and back rows quickly if the young ones started acting up, or for whatever other reason. Though it is a bit to narrow to comfortably get through. I would much rather of had a console as well. I can always lasso the youngens from the front seat if they start getting to rowdy. The console could hold the snacks and a container of moist towelettes for the messes from the snacks.
