#4693 of 5141 2011 Mazda3 i Touring Manual, price on 10-28-2010

This is what we paid for our Mazda3s, right?
So here we go. Did everything over the phone and internet for 2011 Mazda3 i Touring Manual with no extra options.
In the end, driving away with it for $18,000 including dealer fee, 6% tax, registration and tags in PA. So, I would say, the price of the car itself is $16,800. But... But it is including $500 Mazda loyalty discount because I have Mazda already.

2010 i3 Touring Auto, Bose/moonroof. Chicago area.
19,360 - $500 cash back = 18,860 + tax
This was the last gunmetal blue in the area. Dealer would have parted with a black one for 18,500.

I just bought a 2011 3 s sedan 6 speed/2.5L and bose moonroof for 17,400 (19,000 OTT) in Florida. MSRP was 21,629. Great deal. Love the car. Am adding the Sirus radio and leather for 1,200 from an installer of the dealer (faked a referral from the dealer!!!!).Will add engine mods from Corksports when the designs are done.

I bought mine in Port Richey. There are better deals for new cars that these (2011). Try searching in cars.com and autotrader.com. Lealand in Miami and Yoemans in Daytona have really good deals.

Can you combine the special 500 financing rebate with the 500 dealer cash?
#4700 of 5141 Is this a good deal?

Can anyone tell me how much I can expect to get off the sticker price for a 2011 Mazda3 i touring with the moon and tune option? Please make it before rebates or taxes. I think I can get $3000.00 off sticker but not sure. Thanks for any help.

Pricing may vary by state/region, so where you live may be different from the following amounts that I pulled using my zip code (Atlanta area)-
2011 Mazda3 i Touring 4-door (assuming 5-speed manual)
w/ Bose/Moonroof Package
Sticker Price- $20,290
Best Local Price (TrueCar.com) - $18,153 ($2137 total discount)*
* $500 Marketing Support (Dealer Cash) is included in this total
2011 Incentives available-
0.9% APR for 60 months + $400 Bonus Cash- must finance thru Mazda's captive lender
So you could save another $400, making the total $17,753. With the finance rate of 0.9%, with $1500 down payment, would result in a payment of around $280 for 60 months. Over the life of the loan, you'd pay less than $600 in interest! If you had to finance the same amount at 6.99% on a regular 60-month loan, you would end up paying about $3100 in interest. So the 0.9% loan will save you more than $2500 compared to a conventional loan at the current average rate.
Another suggestion you might want to consider is a leftover 2010 Mazda3 i Touring. The 2010 and 2011 i Touring models are identical with no changes made for 2011. Here's an idea of the deal you could expect-
2010 Mazda3 i Touring 4-door MT
Sticker Price - $20,070
Best Local Price (TrueCar.com) - $16,550*
* $1500 Marketing Support (Cash to Dealer) included in this total
0.0% APR Financing for 60 months + $750 Bonus Cash
That would bring the price down to $15,800 and you wouldn't pay a penny in interested over the life of the loan! That's a savings of around $2550 compared to the 2011 model ($1600 lower purchase price, $600 interest savings compared to 0.9% loan, $350 more Bonus Cash).
Buying a previous model year vehicle usually has one significant drawback- depreciation is much greater than on a current year model. But that doesn't seem to be an issue in this situation! The Mazda3 has the highest resale value in its class and a 2010 Mazda3 i Touring MT currently has a used value of $17,215 (Dealer Retail). So there's no need to worry about negative equity. Your insurance rates will also be lower by as much as 15% on Comp/Collision coverages.
