Hello tucci314. Let's work up a sample payment on the car that you are interested in using Mazda's current lease program and see what sort of number we come up with. According to my calculation, if you were to lease a 2007 Mazda3 s Touring with an automatic transmission, sunroof, and 6 CD changer that has an MSRP of $20,860 and a selling price of $19,992 ($500 over invoice) through Mazda Credit right now for 24 months with 12,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $298. As you can see, the payment that you are looking for is not really possible without making a large down payment. Even if you were able to negotiate this car's price down to invoice, the payment would still be $283 before tax. If you want a lower monthly payment, I suggest stretching out this lease to 36 months.

Hi fgaz1. This car's lease payment will depend upon what sort of selling price you are able to negotiate on it. The lower its selling price is, the lower your lease payment will be. For now I will assume that you will be able to negotiate a $1,000 discount on this car. According to my calculations, if you lease a 2007 Mazda3 s Grand Touring Sedan that has an MSRP of $23,000 and a selling price of $22,000 through Mazda Credit right now for 24 months with 12,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $354. If you stretch this lease out to 36 months or are able to negotiate a lower selling price its monthly payment will be a little lower.

Hi steevo. I have seen Mazda's April lease program for the Mazda3 and I would be happy to give you an idea of what it is like. I just need you to provide me with some additional information first, including the exact model that you want, how long you want to lease it for, and what mileage allowance you need. Let me know what these numbers are and I'll tell you what the April lease program is like.

#122 of 850 Mazda 3 Lease

Please tell me what my monthly payment should be on a 36-month lease, 12k miles a year, for a Mazda 3 with a price of $17,700. We would put $2000 down, to cover all fees, first payment, etc. The dealership wants $243 a month...seems high to me.

That sounds right to me, what is the APR?

Sorry, but don't know apr. I can tell you the sale price is $17,356 and the monthly payment is actually $237.49 for 36 months with $1994.99 out the door. Your thoughts?
Thanks very much.

I think that it is a good price for all those options. Sounds good to me.

did you list the options and I missed it?
have you seen the advertised lease deal? $189/mo with a hair over $2k down for only 24 months. Your 36-month deal does not sound too enticing to me.
