So what is your monthly payment? You left that out. Unless we're to assume its $332
#422 of 558 Sirius Radio for 2014 6 Touring
Jun 20, 2013 (9:26 pm)
I just picked up my 2014 Mazda6 touring and when I set the specs for the lease I was supposed to get the sirius radio installed at the dealer. I got a call this morning which is the day that I was supposed to pick it up and they said that Mazda does not make the part to put the radio into the sport or touring model. I do not know if they are just saying this because they were giving us the radio for free because we have been long time customers or if it is actually the truth. If anyone knows someone that works for Mazda or has any idea on how true this is I would like some information. I am also wondering if I get it installed in the dash now by a third party would it show up on the 5.8 inch screen in the car? I am assuming yes if the cars are equipped for the sirius set up.

I am just wondering if you got any information from your buddy that works for Mazda about the satellite radio. I was supposed to get a satellite radio complimentary put into my new lease of a Mazda 6 touring because we have had so many cars from the same salesman. This morning which was the day in which I picked the car up they gave me a call and said that they can't put the radio in the sport or touring models for the 2014 Mazda 6 because the part needed for it is not made. I do not know if this true or they are just saying this so we do not get the radio. Also, if I go somewhere else and get one installed in the dash will it display on the screen already in the car. Since you stated that you read that all models are equipped to be setup with it I would assume that it should show up on the screen. I figured you would be a good person to ask for this situation and any information would be greatly appreciated.

Please can someone that is familiar with how leases are priced help me evaluate whether the following lease payments are a good deal or not? Car dealership is in NY metro area.
My lease is 20,000 miles per year for 2 years. Please take that as a given as I need these parameters.
MSRP: $31,190 (2014 GT with FoW and MRCC)
Invoice price : $29,421
Money factor: 0.00022
Money down of $1,984 (made up of bank fee 595, tax 950, first months payment 439)
Monthly payment (inclusive of tax): $439
Any thoughts would be gratefully appreciated.

I'd go with a 4 cylinder camry XLE with a similar MSRP (or actually $1000 less but with similar features) with a money factor of .00001 and a much lower selling price. But if you prefer the mazda due to appearance/other, I have no opinion as to whether that's a good deal or not. Happy motoring whatever you do.

That's one thing I don't understand-- how in heavens name does mazda only offer satellite radio in the top of the line grand touring. Ridiculous. Appears you got lied to about the satellite being able to be put into a touring. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Using your numbers, it appears that the capitalized cost of the car to get you to $439 a month is around the MSRP. Based on posts, the car should sell for invoice +/- a few hundred. kbb.com says a fair price is $200 over invoice.
Who is the leasing company? Is it Chase (Mazda Capital Services) or a third party leasing company. That money factor seems low and considering the residual percentage for a 36 month, 10K/yr is 60% (see post 408) these days, a 67% residual for a car with 40K miles, even only two years old, looks high. If it is a third party leasing company be careful, check out the disposition fees and know they will hit you with excess wear and tear charges that Chase would not. They have to make money somehow and they are not making it based on the MF and residual. Also, you should put all the fees into the lease. Should the car be stolen or totalled in an accident, you lose everything you paid at inception.

ral, ronny wants a car with MRRC and FOW. That's radar cruise control and forward obstruction warning. Those aren't available on a Camry. The GT also has Bi-Xenon Adaptive headlights and the City Braking system similar to Volvo. Can't get them on a Camry. And the Camry received a Poor in the new Small Overlap crash test so I wouldn't want to be behind the wheel of one. Suggest you consider a Mazda6. It's worth a few extra bucks.

What if the car behind you (say, a camry) doesn't have MRRC and FOW?
