Thanks so much! It's still up in the air, but factoring in insurance, fuel, monthly payments, and taxes, it looks as though the Mazda6 Sport Auto is extremely comparable to a Mazda3 i Touring Auto HB with Preferred Package. For the Mazda6, fuel economy is comparable, insurance and payments are slightly cheaper, and property taxes are slightly higher. All this for a newer model year with a brand new design with more room and more power and equivalent features. It's definitely going to come down to how each one drives.
I know this month has barely begun, but any chance of guessing how they'll change the rates in May?

You're very welcome will_ksu. It's difficult to say what the May programs will be like at this time.

You made a great post and I want to acknowledge that. However, I am very familiar with leasing. I have a spreadsheet in which I enter money factor, residual value, etc and I determine the monthly payments in advance based on what I am looking to pay for the car.
I think I skipped a step when I interpreted your post. I assumed that someone would always calculate the selling price beforehand. So in your scenario, if a dealer comes up $100 less than my calculated payment for the same car with the same equipment as other dealers, then I wouldn't really care how he is getting it done.
That being said, this scenario is unlikely because either I would had miscalculated my numbers terribly wrong or the dealer did. Math is math as much as I hate it. So I would surely double check my figures before committing.
Finally, I have also found that dealer MF and Residual numbers are sometimes different than numbers obtained here. Whether that's lying by the dealer who knows, but sometimes their figures are not te same so their calculations are different. This is assuming top-tier credit.

Car_man I have several questions:
Are these numbers for the 2014 Mazda6 Touring the same for April as March?
Also, could you post the April MF and Residual for a the Touring, 36 months, but with 10K miles per year?
I notice you mentioned Chase, but Mazda's website mentions Mazda Capital Services. Are the numbers the same regardless?
Do you know the acquisition fee for the Mazda6? Is the security deposit the same as the first month's payment?

I have been looking at the Sport model and it seems to have everything that I am looking for already standard.
So could you please post the money factor and residual value of a the 2014 Mazda6 Sport Automatic with both 10K and 12K miles?

Are you aware of the lease 'promo/special' for April on the 2014 Sport AT?
It's a 36-month lease, $1999 due at signing (includes 1st mo & acquisition fees), $229/month (plus taxes, title and fees).
It allows 12k miles per year with $0.15/mile overage. MSRP is $23,290 including destination and payment is based on Cap Cost of $21,515.
Purchase option at end of lease is $14,207. Dealer participation required, as is top-tier credit.
You mention a $1000 rebate, is that the Owner Loyalty Incentive or something else?
I'm not sure if this will help at all or not, but just thought I'd throw it out there....

I wasn't aware until now. Thank you, for informing me, as it gives me leverage . But, I just got another offer from another dealer who I think may have closed the deal, if everything goes smoothly during the actual purchase.
257.60 a month w/ 1K downpayment and 1k owner royalty (for anyone w/ a mazda at your address)
based on 21919 (w/ rebate) + 595 acquisition fee.

Glad I could help! It's actually $1989 due at signing and $219/month in some markets.
But the $257/mo OTD is sounding pretty sweet! What color (interior and exterior) are you getting?
#367 of 557 Need ballpark idea of Mazda6 i GT 36mo Lease Pymt- help!
Apr 28, 2013 (12:11 am)
This is a very vague question, but Iím only looking for a vague, ballpark answer...
Iím helping a friend of the family find a new car before the lease experies on her 2010 Infiniti in a few weeks and she turns it in.
She loves the Mazda6 i Grand Touring and plans to lease again. She is 60-years old, credit score in the 780+ range and owns a Physical Therapy practice that cleared over $200k last year.
Currently, cash flow is a bit of an issue, but it will return to normal in less than two months. She just had some MAJOR unplanned expenditures (over $15k) very recently. So she would like to keep the amount due at lease signing as low as possible.
1- What is the least down payment she could expect to pay on a 36-month lease on a 2014 Mazda6 Grand Touring?
Any chance of $1000 due at signign (which I know typically includes first month payment).
2- What is a ballpark estimate for the monthly payment on a 2014 GT 36-month lease? Is $350 realistic? Or $400/mo?
I just need a very general idea, can I tell her a payment between $300 and $400 is doable?
She is in love with the Mazda6 and so am I. I also have a 2012 CX-9 GT and just gave my nephew my beloved 2006 Mazda3 5-door for his 15th b-day!
If we canít make the Mazda6 lease work out, Acura is currently running $0 down lease specials on a lot of models. The godawful TL 3.5 ĎBaseí is $390/month for 36mos with $0 down, but a TSX Tech 4-door is also $390 with $0 down.
The TSX SportWagon is $360/mo, same term, $0 down and the TSX ĎBaseí 4-door is $330/mo.
The TSX Wagon would be my (distant) 2nd pick after the Mazda6....
HELP me out guys! Iím just dontí want to pursue the Mazdat6 any further and get her hopes up if it isnít financially realistic for her!
