Yes, they are.
CarsDirect price of 25.6k for Accord V6-EXL.
You can either use their dealers or simply go to a local dealership and ask if they will meet their price.
Executive Honda in Wallingford did.
Oh---see what the 2009 Mazda 3 models are going for. Mazda is giving their models away AND trying like hell to sell remaining 08 models.
You apparently read nothing that I wrote....why don't you read it again.
You are comparing a low ball price sale quote of a Accord with an MSRP of $31,500 to the MSRP...say it again with me....MSRP , not selling price, of a 2010 Mazda3. Not a fair comparison.

The term was used, and as I had missed noticing it when it went up, it rested comfortably until someone decided that we had to go into it instead of simply ignoring what was more a result of the death of the English language than anything else. So I've removed the post in question, and the posts discussing the post.
Back to the Mazda 3 please.

I am not sure why you are on this forum?? If you want an Accord just go buy one.
I agree with AVI on this one for sure. In my case I am buying a 2010 3 S Sport automatic which retails for $20,210. I can buy the car for $500 under that price easily plus I have a preferred buyers card from Mazda for another $500 off. There is nothing, and I mean nothing that comes remotely close to this car for around $19,200 plus taxes. If you tried to compare this car with the Civic EX you would be way off. It would be a better comparison to compare the S model 3 to the Civic Si which would cost a lot more for the same gas mileage and a little more hp but less torque.
Different strokes for different folks. Isn't it great that we don't all like the same thing.

The Canadian version just has a driver's power seat, not sure about U.S.

I am 99% sure it is just the drivers seat. I test drove one last week but didn't look at the passengers seat controls.

In CT, MSRP for a 2010 Maza 3 IS THE SELLING PRICE. Right now, dealers are asking for full sticker. That may change in the future, but right now..MSRP IS THE SELLING PRICE. There are many who will, I suppose, pay full sticker for a new model. I am not one of them.
The quote from CarsDirect was NOT a lowball price. It was honored.
Say it again with me...MSRP IS THE SELLING PRICE FOR THE 2010 MAZDA3. MSRP IS...
#293 of 832 2010 Mazda3 sedan
Mar 08, 2009 (9:44 am)
Found a 2010 Mazda3 sedan, 2.5 eng, 6 speed trans, Bose stereo with 8 speakers, moonroof etc, sticker is $18,500, dealer would not even budge $1 below sticker. I am in Southern New Jersey, Phila area and can't find another 2010 Mazda3 anywhere close by. Needless to say, the car is still sitting on the lot.
There are still plenty of 2009 Mazda3 sedans around with the 2.0 eng and 5 speed and they are ready to wheel and deal but performance wise the 2010 is much more superior.

I have a 2.0 liter Mazda I new value 10 months old with 4k on it.I bought it because it was better on fuel than the S or GT 2.3 liter.The GT came with heated seats,but I wanted a 2.0 like my Type S Acura.
. Now, if I go with a 2010 HB 5pd (wish it was a 6spd) it will have a 2.5 liter. So my question is can I shift into second gear and skip 34 and drop it in 5th gear (OD)? In my Acura I can drop it in 6th gear from third gear. I get 31 highway 26 city premium fuel.
I have a feeling of a good trade in . I clear masked it, got rid of goofy antennae and put an Acura shark finn on it,but I need a HB. the options I want are a sunroof and heated seats.So,I'm stuck with a GT right?
Unless dealer sends car to shop and installs heated front seats for $800.00.
Well, if you have any ideas or critism I'd appreciate it. I'm off to try an Astra 2dr HB with heated seats and (leather) no sunroof unless you buy 4dr. . I was told it was an Opel made in Germany or belgium and it's rockin' Eurpope .You got any other cars in mind/
