  • Seeing as you got it for under invoice...by about a $1000. I'd say you did well.
  • Right now, I think that the dealers are willing to go to greater lengths to sell cars. Its hard to believe that they got the car I wanted from over 150 miles away then drove it another 45 miles to drop it off at my house all at $1000 under invoice.

    Keep it real folks, A 2000-3000 off msrp deal was hardly anything 24 months ago much less now. We're looking at 6000-7000+ off to get realistic. Anything less is hardly giving the car away. Do you want to eat $5000 or more to drive a average sedan for 12 months? In a recession?

    Good luck

    An '08 Ford Fusion that has an MSRP of $22,900 (not $22,000) would easily have a selling price of $20,000 the day it was delivered to the dealer. So, yes KBB says it has a trade in value of $12,775 but your loan payoff would be right at that $12,775 anyway. You would not be "eating $5000 or more" as you say. Worst case scenario you would break even.
  • I just picked up this car for the wife yesterday. Sandstone with Moonroof/Bose package. We paid 25,879 total including tax, title, and fees which I thought was a good not great deal. The price would have been 23,879 but then I would have had to go with regular financing costing more in the long run. So we opted for the 0% for 36 months. I always negotiate the OTD "out the door price" and leave the dealer to figure out how he comes up with the number. I suppose that lets the dealership disguise profits. We did get the $1000 loyalty so a more accurate comparison is 26,879. I thought the mazda dealers would have been more aggressive in dealing with me but I found most of them kinda lazy. Only one dealer followed through with constant contact eager to make a sale. I can only guess Japanese dealers aren't hurting as bad. I haggled for quite a bit as it doesn't bother me and I beat the carsdirect.com price but it was a lot of work and maybe I'll just bypass the dealer next time. In short, I'm happy to get a brand new loaded 6 for under 26K total.

    Where did you get such a wonderful deal?
  • I think that you got a very good price. My price was $25,309 but it didn't include tax which I have to pay. Since I got such a good price without the owner's incentive, I didn't get the 0% financing option, which is ok for me. So far I am loving the car although I have to say that I am a bit intimidated reading the owner's manual as to all the programming options available for the Grand Touring model. I think that dealers are dying to make a sale. January 2009 figures for Mazda are down 27.3% from last January and the new Mazda6 model is down 60.1% over last January so they are hurting. I can't give out the name of my saleswoman on this site but if you live within driving distance of the Eastern shore of Maryland and are interested in a great deal, contact me @ lewisinuk@hotmail.com and I will forward her name and the dealership to you. They were great and there was no pressure. They picked up the car over 100 miles away and then delivered the next day 45 miles to my house.

    Has anyone in SoCal got a good deal on the 6's? I looking to decide between the Camry, Accord and 6. I still don't understand why I am not getting a good deal on the 6's. It is a nice looking car but some how I hardly find people driving it here.
  • A bit confused after all the discussion about regional advertising fee and what not. Overstock.com had the car I want at invoice price for iTouring with auto, convenience, Bose & roof for $24281. Should I offer the dealer 23281? Is that the fair price right now for this car? Hope someone can chime in. Thanks.
  • I got the 6 i Touring with the same package for about 24k so I'd say that this is a good price. I was offered $2000 incentive so the car would have been even cheaper but I opted for 0%.
  • I am looking for a used car for my college bound daughter. I found an 08, Mazda6 with 20K mileage for $10,900. Carfax shows that it was a rental. Does that sound like a good deal?

    Thanks

    These were also heaviliy discounted, many paid $5000 below MSRP (as did I in 2007). Of course, it would be very foolish to buy a new car and then trade it in after 12 months...who does that?

    It's not like one can buy a used car at the trade in price, so I am not sure what the point of that sort of comparison is. A used 2007 Mazda6i is about $12,000 from Hertz, with much higher mileage than I have on mine. I paid only $4000 more than that to buy mine new two years ago.

    A 2008 Fusion was based on the first gen Mazda6. The 2009 Mazda6 is nothing like a 2008 Fusion.

    Asa matter of fact, the 2010 Fusion has less in common with the 09 Mazda6 then the 2008 Fusion and 03-08 Mazda6.

    i got a quote from Orange mazda, NY recently for a 09 i sport. They just offered me 19600-1000rebate+TTL, and they said they can just sell it for invoice. I think this offer is a little higher than my expect. how do you guys think?
  • Is that Automatic or Standard. I've been looking at Mazda6 and here's the quote I got:

    A 2009 Mazda 6i Sport (2.5L 4cyl), automatic, no options. Those prices include cash back.

    Lists at $21,920
    Invoice is $20,578
    Purchase price is: $18,078 w/o financing, 18,578 w/ financing

    this dealer was in NJ.
  • Has anyone purchased a fully loaded 2009 Grand Touring S recently? How much did you pay under invoice?
  • xinyxiny Posts: 3
    Thank for your reply.
    i am inquiring a 6 speed manual.
    your price doesn't include tax, am i right? how much is your cash back? is it only regular $1000 or plus owner loyalty? i plan to finance, and the price they offered is just invoice, there is still some room to haggle.
  • those figures are NOT including TTL or owner loyalty.
  • Got a quote of $17983 for 09 Sport Auto. the only option it has is a spoiler. This includes the $1000 owner loyalty but not TTL. Got that through two emails. Haven't pushed them at all. Can I do much better?

    Thanks!

    sound a good deal. Where did you get this quote?
  • Just got back from the dealership. Was intending to buy the Mazda5 but the Mazda6 was spacious enough for two child seats and a boat load of baby stuff in the trunk. Got a Touring 4-cyl, 6-speed manual. Sunroof package and preferred equipment package. S-price (basically invoice) - $2000 dealer cash from Mazda of Roswell (metro Atlanta). Internet department there was superb.
  • I'm being quoted 3k off of msrp on any mazda 6 on the lot. seems like a good deal to me, should I jump? also debating the v6 vs the i4, is the v6 mileage really as bad as it sounds?

    If you look at my last post of sedans, most of the used 08s are barely worth trade in 12000-13000 first year. (what your 09 would be worth in 12 months). (kbb.com)

    $3000 off a 22000 base mazda6 wouldn't seem that appealing to me at $19000. I believe the 20000msrp 09 mazda5 is barely worth 13000 in 12 months. $4000 or so off msrp is appropriate here, and your targets (price or price + financing.)

    If no movement, a 5, saturn aura or chevy malibu might be worth a shot at $14500 or so, if the ads hold up usually gm loyalty or lease. Possiby you could work something else.

    In the auto-news I read that the 6 had the most disappointing sales figures.mazda reported. $5500 was about the discount on the 08 22000msrp 6. This was when the economy was fair. The discounts should be larger, or they got their production in control quick.

    Hyundai may discount the 20000 sonata gls 6000 or more in your area, so getting quotes from 6-10 dealers before the holiday or end of month may be fruitful. (for all dealers)

    I wouldn't break a leg getting to the dealer for 3k off. The Honda or Toyota may be more desirable in the 19000 range (or less) for a base.

    I've seen some abnormally low price figures on the $20000 Pontiac Vibe (Toyota Matrix). $14000 or so with loyalty (or not?). Either way, both vehicles have a trade in of about $13000 1st year. $3500-4000 off msrp wasn't uncommon in past years, so one would want at least this much off now.

    Good luck

    The '08 Mazda6's depreciation shouldn't be used as a basis for projecting the resale value of the new '09 model. The '08 was HEAVILY subsidized, especially at the end of the model year, with rebates exceeding $4000. Obviously, that destroys residual values when comparing to the full MSRP.

    The '08 Mazda6, although a great driver's car, wasn't class-competitive. The '09 model is has now jumped to the front of the pack, leading the mid-size class in many respects! The improvements will certainly result in a significantly lower rate of depreciation.
  • this is kinda what I was thinking also. 3k + financing on a brand new model seems pretty good. if this type offer doesn't move cars i would expect them to simply cut production, go in slow burn rate on money and try to wait out the recession rather than eat a big loss on a car that should be one of their best sellers. but then I will also be upset if I'm wrong and in 2 months they are cutting them by 5k also and I overpaid :P

    if their depreciation really is as bad as you say the best thing to do would by one used with a few months mileage on it and save big. problem is finding one.
  • jfritschjfritsch Posts: 958
    Nope. Nothing earthshaking about the 6.

    The 24000 Impala is barely worth 11000 used.

    The $20000 Sonata (said class competitive with Honda) is barely 12000 after a year.

    The 20000 09 Mazda5 barely worth 13000 after 12 months.

    22000 Saturn Aura about 12000 virtually the same car as the malibu. The malibu maybe the same (not many 08s made)

    Perhaps the 22000 mazda6 will outperform at 13000-14000. (the m3 is best in this respect) In any event, don't break a leg for a 19000 deal, as the sales figs for the 6 were the most disappointing of their lineup. The economy is in the tank. A 09 Honda Accord or Toyota Camry may be worth around the 19k.

    Good luck

  • I just accepted (still time to back out) an offer on a 6 iTouring with conv pack. MSRP 25475 got the offer down to 20556.17 including TTL. What do you think? Sound like a decent deal?
    This will be my first 6.. drove really well, good accel, handling, was very impressed overall with the ride.

    Oh ..does anyone know where I can get or what is needed for the Sirius ready head unit so that I can get The satellite radio going on the car?
  • That's pretty much the same car I'm interested in and that's a better price that I've been able to get (I've e-mailed 5 dealers so far). What general location are you in and what's your sales tax? Also, can you get the special financing with that price? The best deal I've gotten on that same car was $20,500 before TTL. I'm interested in your details because it's the best price I've seen so far.
  • thats over 3k below invoice. I also am curious where you got this deal
  • I live in Northeast PA and actually went to a dealer in New York to get this car

    Actual selling price of car is 20226. I'm trading in a 2004 Accord so with the trade there is a decent break in the sales tax which is 6% in PA. Right now they have 1500 customer cash back and I also got a 500 preferred customer discount (dealer said they got about 6 of these cards from Mazda and I was given one). Salesman said most dealers get a few of these cards Mazda. Maybe with this info you can get your dealer to give you one.

    So After trade and then adding tax is why Price is where it's at. Seems from what I'm reading that its not too bad a deal.
