#361 of 557 Re: 2014 Mazda 6 Touring [Car_man]
Apr 16, 2013 (10:31 am)
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?

Apr 22, 2013 (4:17 am)
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?

Very informative stuff here..

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!

Hey biggbrother. Chase's April buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2014 Mazda6 Touring with 10,000 miles per year now vary by region. In some areas the money factor is .00073. In other areas it's .00045. If you tell me what state you are in I can tell you what factor is available in your area.
The residual value for this lease would be 59% everywhere.
Mazda Capital Services is just the brand name that Mazda uses for leases that it runs through Chase.
Chase charges a $595 acquisition fee on every Mazda that it leases. I think that you will probably be able to get your vehicle's security deposit waived.

#369 of 557 Satellite radio? Heated seats?
Apr 29, 2013 (11:28 am)
I'm looking to lease a sedan (Accord, Camry, etc.) and am considering a Mazda 6 but from what I understand, the only way to get Sirius satellite radio is to lease the top of the line grand touring?? Or heated seats?
#370 of 557 Re: Satellite radio? Heated seats? [ral2167]

Heated seats are only available on the Grand Touring. I find it very odd that Mazda made "leatherette" upholstery standard on the mid-level Touring, but heated seats aren't even optional on that model. (BTW- I couldn't wait to see just how cheap-looking and feeling the "leatherette" would be, but I was very pleasantly surprised! It looks and feels more like real leather than the leather seats in my $40k Mazda CX-9 GT!)
SIRIUS is also standard on the GT, but not offered of the lower models. The previous two generations of Mazda6 had SIRIUS-ready audio systems and the dealer sold the SIRIUS hardware for $300 or so. I bought it for my 2006 Mazda3 and it was a simple plug-and-play installation and was fully integrated like a factory unit would be.
But I don't see it on the 2014 Mazda6 Accessory list. I did some digging into the detailed specs (from Mazda's marketing site) and it does indicate that the audio system in ALL 2014 Mazda6 models are SIRIUS-ready. I'll email a buddy of mine who runs a Mazda Parts Dept in Alabama and ask him about it....
Other than SIRIUSXM, they are Pandora Internet Radio compatible, if you want to explore that. It's my understanding your smart phone has to work as the receiver for Pandora, but I know several folks who seem to love it!
If you're interested in the Touring model, you should consider getting one with Touring Tech Package....or at least drive one with and one without it to compare. For $2000, it adds a LOT of features!
If you decide that the Mazda6 isnít quite right for you, I have something else in mind that might fit the bill and itís much more interesting than Camry or Altima or even the Accord....the Acura TSX!
Acura has some pretty incredible lease deals on the 2013 TSX right now. The Ďbaseí TSX has everything youíd want- heated, leather seats, 7-speaker Premium Audio system with standard XM radio and AUX/USB inputs and all the other features youíd expect on an entry-level luxury car.
You can get a 36-month lease with $1999 due at signing for $279/month (not including taxes, registration, blah, blah).
Or you can go with $0 due at signing and $330/month.
Parent company Honda is also running some nice lease deals on the Accord. They have promo leases on LX, EX and EX-L V6 Sedans, but the EX looks sweet but it has cloth seats (not heated) and a not-so-hot 6spkr 160-watt Audio System without SIRIUSXM even as an option.
If you step up to the EX-L, you get heated leather seats AND a MUCH more impressive 7-speaker 360-watt Premium Audio System with standard SIRIUSXM. You also get a Forward Collision Warning System (which Iíve had for years, itís called a WINDSHIELD in my car), Lane Departure Warning System, Rearview Camera, 2-position Memory for Driverís Seat, 4-way power passenger seat and LED brake lights.
The EX-L stickers for $2590 more than the EX, but you get a lot of value for the money IMO.
The EX-L V6 is almost identical but instead of the 185hp 2.4L 4-cylinder and CVT, it has a 278hp 3.5L V6 with a 6-speed automatic. It is rated at 21/34mpg, great for a V6 and I recently read a review of the V6 sedan in one of the car mags. It does 0-60 in 5.6 seconds, which makes it the fastest mid-size sedan you can buy (or lease). The V6 is carried over from the previous generation Accord, so the new 6-speed automatic is largely responsible for almost-insane-for-a-family-car acceleration! Iíve had the pleasure or driving one and I was very impressed. But it is so smooth and quiet that I hit 90mph and it felt more like 70.
The EX-L V6 lease is 36-months, $2799 due at signing and $309/month.
The $0/down alternative is $0 due at signing and $380/month.
I probably gave you a little (LOT) more info than you needed, but I hope it helps you out!
