Thanks for the response. 3% is a number I can remember. Thanks again. Will get to work figuring my numbers...now all I have to do is get the money.

Had a happy experience with Internet Managers at Menlo Mazda. Picked up 2010 MX-5 Grand Touring, manual transmission, power hardtop, with Premium package and Suspension Package. Car (with destination but before docs and taxes) came to $26,393.
Out the door price:
Selling Price: $26393
Dmv & Fees: $429
Tax (9.5%) : $2512.56
TOTAL OTD: $29334.56
They gave a reasonable price on my trade-in, too, so my final outlay was reduced. No surprises at all at the dealership; everything we'd emailed about was honored with no hassles at all. I had expected at least some unpleasant aspect, but there wasn't one.
What did surprise me was that I could get actual price quotes from only 3 of the 6 Mazda dealers I contacted. And Menlo was by far the lowest.
I love my Copper Red Mica roadster --- and the heated seats will pay off big time here in Northern California.

Trying to bring this forum back though. I did buy a nice used 2003 for 9900. Low miles. The 2001-2005 is the sweet spot for this car, IMO.

I recently purchased a 2002 MX-5 with just 36,000 miles for $8K. I bought the car in FL and it looks and rides like a new car. This is my first Mazda and also my first convertible. This car has been an absolute blast to drive.
I'll keep the car in FL where we have a second home. I expect to put no more than 5K miles a year on it, so I'm hoping to get many years of zoom - zoom out of my new toy.
