#4298 of 5141 Best deal on 2006-08 Mazda3?
Sep 14, 2009 (7:21 pm)
I'm looking for a used Mazda3 Sport with under 35k miles. I'm very near Wayne Mazda in northern NJ. They have a ton of used 2006-2008 models that would work for me. These are listed from $13,995 to $16,995. One specific car is a loaded 2006 Sport with 30k miles for $14,995.
How much room I have on these used models? What would be a good deal? I'd like to be at $13k OTD. Is that possible? Can I get it even lower?
Are there any big advantages to a 2008 over a 2007/06?

Leased for 36 mos/10k miles/yr, cap cost $17,729, which is $500 BELOW invoice-very happy with the deal and the car. Got first color choice, and dealer had to trade to get it.

I got the red car instead... cost me $17600 with all fees included... i'm fairly pleased with my purchase.. i'm sure i could have gotten a better deal somewhere else but the red is very hard to come by in the northeast.. especially a manual transmission... i ended up NOT going to the wayne NJ dealership because i checked them out on the BBB website and they got an F rating... i'm sure others have had great experiences with them but regardless.. put me on edge...
thanks to everyone for their insight and input...

#4303 of 5141 S Plan price
Sep 22, 2009 (4:52 pm)
Has anyone used the S-Plan to purchase a Mazda 3? I am eligible to use the plan but I want to make sure I understand it before I go into a dealer.
The website says that rebates and incentives should be deducted from the S plan price including dealer cash incentives, top level dealer engagement or stair step programs.
How will I know if the dealer is deducting those items from the price. Is there a way to find out if any of those incentives and/or rebates are available now?

This is the best I was able to do on price around Worcester, MA for a 3i Touring with automatic, gunmetal color (numbers below approximate):
$17,971 negotiated price
$1,111,94 sales tax
$239 dealer fee (I asked them to remove this from the original negotiated price of $18,210 so they could add it back on at the bottom of the sales invoice, where it's pre-printed.)
$125 dealer fee for tags
I was helping a relative shop for the car and I found the two dealers in the area pretty immovable on price beyond their only internet offers. Both were initially willing to let me walk. Of course, where I live on Long Island, I'd have 10 dealers to choose from in the same radius, so there might be more competition. I would have liked another $500 off in addition to the dealer fee, which is largely profit.

I got a quote of $18,500 OTD for an i touring automatic. I emailed to a few dealers and ask if any of them could beat that price. I received one response saying they could but the difference won't be that much. Is it any good? Tax is 7% here.
#4306 of 5141 New to fourm. Need advice on price.
Oct 10, 2009 (9:02 am)
Been shopping for 2010 Mazda 3i touring
sedan with Auto/Bose/Moonroof.
Quoted 18720 (no tax in my state)
This was quoted by general sales manager and confirmed.
The invoice is 19489.
Seems like a good deal to me at $769 under invoice?
However I know how these quotes can someti
es be when they tell you that "Internet quotes do not include floor mats so that will be $1,500 higher" and so I have to walk and feel like I wasted my time!
Any advice? Thanks.

Looking to purchase a 3 Hatchback model/sport with Moonroof , Bose Option and Auto trans, MSRP aprox 22,700. What is best price less tax you have received? Am in Denver Colorado market area.
My company offers the Ford X plan, which in Mazda is the S plan, does anyone know if this is still available for 2010? Brochure this year does not mention Mazda like they did last year.
