#857 of 903 Great price near Sacramento
Mar 31, 2006 (4:32 pm)
This is a great time to buy any 2005's left on the lots! Today I completed a deal for a 2005 AT Sport for a final price of $23,591 (invoiced at $25,741, so 2150 below invoice). I used CU Auto Sales in Sacramento. To get to that price, there was $1000 dealer cash, $750 rebate, and $1000 Mazda financing rebate.
Guess I'll have to change my username now.

What was the sticker on the vehicle?
#859 of 903 took the 8 in on Monday ...
Apr 07, 2006 (7:12 am)
to finally get my recalls done. I know that sounds bad, but didn't get to it last fall and didn't drive him all winter so....
Anyway, my Mazda dealer had a crapload of 05 8's left on the lot - probably around 12 give or take. I didn't look them over in great detail, but I know there was one white one, a few reds and blacks, and they had only one auto. Most stickers I looked at were in the $28 - $31K range. I did not ask about selling prices simply because I'm not in the market for one, but I got nearly $10K off my leftover 04 from them last year (and it was earlier than this in the new year).
The dealership is Lester Raines Imports in South Charleston WV. If you google them, they do have a website with no real info on it other than phone number, directions... Might be worth checking out if 05 inventories are getting skimpy in your area.

And, after driving the car for a week, I can only say WHERE HAS THIS CAR BEEN ALL MY LIFE!
#861 of 903 Interesting Mazda RX8 buying experience
May 01, 2006 (6:25 pm)
I saw this rx8 in Denville Grecco ,used 04 for 22900, it was a sports package with NAV 10k miles on it. Lowest they would sell it at was 22,0000. Let him know that I could buy a new 06 for 24,000 base. He said no problem ill get you one. So a week goes by and I stop at Wayne Mazda, Just looking, did not even plan or had authorization from the Wife. These people were good, Ive had 5 years of past car sales experience and new the game. I didnt do that much research except for the carsdirect 24,000 and change for a base model. The sales guy told me to pick out the car I liked and not worry about price. Ya right , heard that. So after 2 hours of being there, I told them i was still looking and havent decided what i wanted, i was also looking at a toyota 4 door truck. they went back and forth with really good prices, I really wanted the car but i had not told my wife yet. SO I had a figure in my head that i new they could not reach. I was looking at a 32,000 GT AT spoiler, 6 CD changer. they kept going lower. they were down to 27,500. I finally wanted to leave and told them i had to go. The Boss came over and told me what would it take. I told him i want the GT for the price of the base. He nearly fell over. I was ready to walk, and asked me if i was a real buyer, pulled out my credit card and threw it on table, He came back with 24,500 plus fees. I signed with a disclaimer that my wife had to approve also. Will long story short , she did not approve and was livid!!! after hours of explaining life is too short, she caved but on some criteria, she looked at the contract and there was over a 1,000 in fees. So we went back to the dealer and my wife who hates car dealers , sat at the table and demanded to take off the fees.....she did pretty good. Out the door including tax,license and fees came to 26,300. SO i bought the car for 24,650...not bad for a 32k car....and yes I love it ...awesome car, great handling,...............a week goes buy and i needed to buy some touch up paint so i went back to my local mazda dealer and they saw the new rx8. A sales manager stopped me and asked me why i didnt buy from them and asked how much i paid, I tell them that i did stop buy and try to deal on a used one and the manager was not being that fair on the deal...so they end up telling me I paid to much! I dont think so , after reading what everyone else paid, i think i got a pretty good deal. Plus the kelly blue book lists the car over 25,000 for a used 2005. Mine is brand new. Go to Wayne Mazda , they are excellent, and not to sneaky...just be an informed buyer and youll get a good deal.. thanks for reading.

just picked a used mazda RX-8 2004 Manual with all options except navigation and 6 cd changer( though it has the BOSE)
for $18800 with 11700 miles . I thought it was a great deal. After seeing what others are paying for a new one, i dont know if it is a great deal anymore. Guys with recent buying experience, did i do ok?

I'd say you probably saved 5 or 6 grand over a new one, so not too bad i guess. Got my 05 GT AT back in Feb for 24,200.

#866 of 903 Recent So. Cal. buying experiences?
Jun 30, 2006 (4:46 pm)
I've been looking for an RX-8 for some time now. Most dealers are quoting $200 to $300 over invoice for a 2006 MT (any trim) and will quickly go to invoice -- AFTER the current $1000 cash back and $500 financing incentive.
This seems to be more or less what people here seem to pay give or take over the years, but can anyone post recent buying experiences? I am in So. Cal.
