    It looks like they accidentally included the floor mats...wasn't on the window sticker, but they are in the car...

    Price was $18788 + TTL = $20,234 (I'm hazy on the last two digits...) with 0% financing for 60 months, and 90 days no payment at all. Plus, no trade-in, no Mazda loyalty bonus.

    I think I did well, but probably not a record low. Purchased from Bankston Mazda in Ft Worth, TX on 27 Aug 2010.

    Follow on:
    - I got the interior/exterior appearance protection for $500. I figure all it takes is one bad spill/stain inside or a few chips on the outside and I got my money's worth. I recognize it is a gamble, but it doesn't seem overly stacked against me.
    - I also got the extended bumper-to-bumper warranty for $2150. My usual way of thinking is that they wouldn't sell it to you if they lost money on the deal, so it is a gamble you will most likely lose.
    This time, however, they introduced it as Mazda splitting the cost of the extended warranty because it gives them more data on long-term maintenance/repair trends. The addition of road hazard insurance, and the fact that it allows me to drop my roadside assistance insurance also defrays the cost to me to a certain extent.

    In both cases, what clinched the deal for me is that I play to keep the car for 10 years, and want to keep the car in the absolute best condition possible for those 10 years, so I see both choices as a slight gamble to preserve the condition of the car.

    Thoughts?
  • Enjoy your new car!!
    Get your self a little log book to put in your glove box, or that nice "zippered book" that comes with your Mazda6iATSport.
    Keep an accurate log on mileage/gas.
    Sit back and enjoy the comforts and smell of your new car.
  • Would like some feedback/opinions/help from you all. I am in Northern CA.

    I want to know if its possible to get a new 2010 Mazda6 i sport automatic for around $17-18K OTD? Thanks.
  • Probably not. A few weeks ago , one was sold 19k+ TTL.
    Keep bugging them, selling is slow, so do deal!!
  • Today I received an on-line quote for an auto 6i sport for 17,400 and change before destination and TTL The MSRP was 21,400 and something. The dealer is located in MD - suburban Wash. DC though, with a limited inventory in that trim. The dealer said the 0% financing also applies with that price but I need to verify that further.
  • I recieved more on-line qoutes from dealers in the Wash. DC area for Mazda 6 i sports (MSRP around 21350). The lowest is $16,500 with rebates ($2000 rebate) and before destination, ttl. With 0% financing, the price is $17,734.

    These prices seem very competitive and unlikely to go lower, even late in the 2010 model year. (When do the 2011 models come out?). Any thoughts?
  • My dealer in Tyler, TX say they have ordered their 2011's, but not there yet.
    So, probably in December is my guess.
    Your price for that 2010 is very attractive.
    I just did a West Coast round trip, over 4000 miles, and never got less than 30 mpg. One tank of gas got 34 mpg. Mileage with Calif. mix gas always is less that the other states I passed thru.

    I already have a few 2011's im my inventory. I got them last week.
  • I'm guessing they have the freshed exterior and interior?

    My local dealer is suppose to have a 2011 S GT (listed as a 2011 on their website) but when I saw the front end it looked exactly the same as the 2010. I emailed Mazda's customer service rep and they did confirm all the changes such as the new look, steering wheel, piano trim and so on.

    In any case, what's the MSRP on a 2011 6 S GT with Nav and Tech? My choices probably comes down to a fully loaded Sonata Ltd Turbo or a fully loaded 6 S GT. Going by the 2010 prices the 6 will come out about 3K higher on the sticker and shorter warranty. But I do love the way it drives and th growl from its V6

    Oh choices....

    Why not save $2K and not get the nav? Portable GPS systems are more convenient and much less expensive than the in-car systems, offer real-time traffic as well, and can be used in your other vehicle(s)...

    And yeah, the growl of a V6 beats any force-fed I4... :)
  • I gotta thank you for making putting some sense into me greyghost. I drove the 6 again and I was just as pleased as the first time, unlike the Sonata where I was disappointed the second time I drove it.

    My local dealer is very low on used cars so they are very aggressive with their trade in offers. I'm also looking to see if I can get a S Plan from a friend' father who works for Mazda. If all goes well, I will be yet another happy Mazda6 owner :)
  • I purchased a 6MT i Sports (MSRP $20,300 ish) for $14,785 - Drive out $16,000. :shades:

    I didn't get the Mazda owner loyalty rebate of $500, otherwise I could have it for $14,299 as it advertised in the paper.

    This week, a local dealer advertises the same car for $14,199 during the local Auto Shows, and with additional Mazda owner loyalty rebate bring it down to $13,699. (I hope that it's not one and only).. :cry:

    You got over almost $6k off MSRP on a base model? That's wild. What dealer and where?
  • Is this with automatic or manual transmission? What dealer and what city? Thanks.
  • So now that I finally figured out what I want there isn't one available around my area. I'm looking for a 2011 model, S Grand Touring in Sangria Red, black leather, Tech and Nav. My local dealers have looked, but nobody came up with what I am looking for. Mazda's website hasn't been updated so I can only search for the 2011 model.

    One of the dealers suggested that I order one but it could take up to 2-3 month which is an awfully long time to wait. What do you guys suggest that I do and what price should I be shooting for? Truecar is showing me about 28,800 for S Grand Touring with Nav, Tech, Wing Spoiler and California emissions. If you guys can share some quotes that you received it would be helpful.
  • Have you used the official Mazda website to search? That is what I used to find mine when the dealers did not know.
    It worked for me. Try it.

    Um, he did.

    Mazda's website hasn't been updated so I can only search for the 2010 model.

    If you're really set on the color and features, I'd seriously consider ordering one then. The '11 production is just hitting dealerships now, and I'm sure it'll be more i models than s, let alone the GT w/Nav, in dealer stock, so even getting your specific color/options within 200 miles of your location may take 2-3 months anyway, let alone at the price you're willing to pay.

    Speaking of which, $28.8K is a good price for a rare-optioned (read: hard to find), loaded s GT. They may bite on $28.5K, but probably not much lower than that (if any).

    Is there one without Nav in your area? Personally, I'd skip the Nav and save a few $$$ in the process...
  • Hi Everyone I just purchased a 2010 6i Sport Manual with a spoiler as the only option for 14,849 with the total OTD for 15,800 after fees and MA Sales Tax at Wellesey Mazda. I also traded my 2008 Mazda 6i SVE with 61k KBB Good value was 8100. I received 8500 acv. Does this sound like a great deal? Additionally, in the paper today I see an additional 500 (autoshow) rebate being advertised that I didn't recieve. Since I haven't taken delivery, but completed the paperwork could I utilize this rebate to perhaps get an accessory I wanted like fog lights that retail at 325 and call it even? Thanks for the feedback!
  • Sounds like you got what you wanted at a very affordable price. Go show the dealer what they did not give you as advertised.
    Take it back in parts for your new car.
  • Hi All,

    I'm hoping everyone will help me by telling me whether this is a good deal based on your experiences:

    2010 iTouring Plus
    Base Price = $24,028
    -$3,000 (cash rebate)
    $21,028
    +$500 for heated seats
    +$1,499 rear dvd system
    +400 rear spoiler
    ==================
    $23,427
    +$1,405.62
    +$208.50
    ==================
    $25,041.12 Out the Door Price

    I was thinking of seeing if I could talk them down to an out the door price of $21,000, am I dreaming or is that fair for what I'd be getting in the 2010?

    This is all prior to discussing...I have a 2009 toyota Camry Hybrid that my lease is up in March 2011, I've got 3 monthly payments left of $217per month, I plan on paying the one for December on 12/15/10. The Camry only has 13,300 miles on it after having it for 3 years.
    I have not yet taken the Camry to the Mazda dealership yet for them to look it over, but I think they would love to get their hands on it considering the few miles it has on it. What do you think I should expect for the Camry?

    Any and all comments would be welcome and thank you all in advance.
