Wow. Looks like a very good deal APR-wise. Anyone venture to guess whether they will have these deals around Labor day? Seems like the end of model year is always better but something may have changed in the market since I bought my last vehicle.
#3095 of 5138 Mazda3 i Touring pricing for Memorial Day?
May 24, 2007 (6:34 pm)
Hi All, I'd like to take advantage of the low financing rates this weekend. I'm looking at a Mazda3 i Touring with the following: ABS/SAB/SAC, moonroof w/6CD, autodim mirror, all weather floor mats, door edge guards, and wheel locks.
MSRP $19,463 before TTL
Invoice $18,103 before TTL
I'd appreciate opinions on what a fair price would be (before TTL).

Well, I don't know exactly with all those options. But I would try to get $500 over MSRP. I know at Mazda Gallery in Norwood, finance rates are .9% this weekend. They were tellin me to wait and close the deal over the weekend. I think its the same everywhere else. Good luck

I hope you meant $500 over INVOICE - or else the dealers would chuckle every time you worked a deal with them .
A few hundred over invoice would be a decent price, as long as that included destination and dealer fees.

Hi All, I offered the dealer $150 over invoice. He hemmed and hawed but finally agreed. The invoice amount that I had gotten from Edmunds was correct except the invoice also had an additional $215 "location Assessment". That is similar to what digidave reported in post #3092.
So the pricing went:
$18,318 Invoice (including location assessment and $595 destination)
150 agreed to "over invoice" price
1,125.42 sales tax
289.00 dealer conveyance fee
I took the 0.9 financing.
By the way, the registration and dealer conveyance fee varied from dealer to dealer.
Hope this info can help someone else looking to purchase.
Thanks to all of you who contribute to this forum.

When I was RX-8 shopping a couple of years back, invoices I was shown by the dealer showed similar "Add ons". It appears they are normal for Mazda dealers and vary by region, it seems.

OK, this offer I received from a dealership in Wausau, Wis., quoted me 18,870 MSRP for a i Touring with ABS, autodimm mirror with Homelink and door edge guards.
I admit, my credit is crap, though I'm not in debt. Insufficient credit was what the finance guy said. When we finally started the finance talk, the banks were closed so I'm going back tomorrow to talk it over with him.
At this point I'm willing to see what he has to offer and table it a few days before giving them an answer. That said, what is a decent price for the i Touring? I know there's no specific answer, so I'm looking for a ballpark figure. 18,870 sounds a little high to me at this point. I'm willing to put 5,000 down.
Thanks for your help!
