    My score is 760 and I'm gettin' 2% on the speed 3 im buyin over at Mazda gallery on route 1, just outside Boston. Some pretty good deals if anyone's looking. Of all the dealers I went to, definitely the most cooperative.

    Not to saying you are wrong, but in my area the cheap money is no good on the speed3.

    2007 MAZDA3 4-Door and 5-Door 1.9% APR for up to 36 MONTHS (1)(4)

    (1) Take new retail delivery from dealer stock by June 4, 2007. See dealer for complete details
    (4) 36 MONTHS MAZDA AMERICAN CREDIT FINANCING AT $28.60 PER MONTH PER $1,000 FINANCED. 1.9% APR ONLY FOR WELL QUALIFIED BUYERS. NOT ALL BUYERS WILL QUALIFY. AMOUNT OF DOWNPAYMENT AND OTHER FACTORS MAY AFFECT QUALIFICATION. Take new retail delivery from dealer stock by June 4, 2007. See dealer for complete details. Excludes MAZDASPEED3


    So I would not count on the cheap money until the deal is done and MAC funds the loan.

    Thats fair. I just got down to 1.8% this morning, though. And ya the speed 3 isnt the cheapest car around, but I find its a lot of bang for your buck. And I like it a lot better than the SI I looked at. I also dont want a car that will require me to have it in the shop every 3 days. I was looking at a couiple saabs, but everyone I know who has one has to bring it to the shop every few weeks.And even if I do need to get something fixed; I looked into it and the gallery has a really good service record.

    I test drove an Si sedan yesterday (while they were changing the oil in my S2000) and I am heading out right now to drive a speed3. They just got one off the truck and I need to drive it before someone buys it :D . You can get cheap money on the Si for sure, around here no on the speed3. The $500 rebate coupon "for Mazda owners" they sent me also excludes the speed3 :( .

    I am pretty sure I will like it better than the Si, but I can get the Honda for invoice or a bit less and about $800 over invoice is the best I can do on a speed3.

    It is not posted on the MUSA web page yet, but the dealership said they just got new promotion deals on the Mazda3. They still have 1.9% for 36, but they also now have 48 and 60 month rates (the 60 is 4.9%) - sound like the same deal as Honda is offering on Civics.

    I checked, and the speed3 is again excluded from the cheap rates - at lease in my area.

    Just thought I'd add to the forum the recent deal we got for the daughter's car:

    2007 Mazda3 S Touring automatic w/ Moonroof and 6CD package

    Price before TTL: $19,624 (includes a "Philadelphia Assesment" of $193 and a "Warranty Retail Parts Recovery" of $32) Dealer showed me that this was the invoice (Edmunds shows $19,492 but doesn't account for the other line items). Also financed at 3.9% for 48 months.

    Good, bad, or ?

    BTW, this car rocks! A lot of bang for the buck, esp. with all the safety options the touring model provides.

    Wow. Looks like a very good deal APR-wise. Anyone venture to guess whether they will have these deals around Labor day? Seems like the end of model year is always better but something may have changed in the market since I bought my last vehicle.

    Hi All, I'd like to take advantage of the low financing rates this weekend. I'm looking at a Mazda3 i Touring with the following: ABS/SAB/SAC, moonroof w/6CD, autodim mirror, all weather floor mats, door edge guards, and wheel locks.

    MSRP $19,463 before TTL
    Invoice $18,103 before TTL

    I'd appreciate opinions on what a fair price would be (before TTL).

    Thanks!
  • mike245mike245 Posts: 5
    Well, I don't know exactly with all those options. But I would try to get $500 over MSRP. I know at Mazda Gallery in Norwood, finance rates are .9% this weekend. They were tellin me to wait and close the deal over the weekend. I think its the same everywhere else. Good luck :)
  • dwynnedwynne Posts: 4,018
    But I would try to get $500 over MSRP

    I hope you meant $500 over INVOICE - or else the dealers would chuckle every time you worked a deal with them :D .

    A few hundred over invoice would be a decent price, as long as that included destination and dealer fees.

    Hi All, I offered the dealer $150 over invoice. He hemmed and hawed but finally agreed. The invoice amount that I had gotten from Edmunds was correct except the invoice also had an additional $215 "location Assessment". That is similar to what digidave reported in post #3092.

    So the pricing went:
    $18,318 Invoice (including location assessment and $595 destination)
    150 agreed to "over invoice" price
    1,125.42 sales tax
    175.00 registration
    289.00 dealer conveyance fee

    I took the 0.9 financing.

    By the way, the registration and dealer conveyance fee varied from dealer to dealer.

    Hope this info can help someone else looking to purchase.
    Thanks to all of you who contribute to this forum.

    I have an e-mail offer on i Touring. MSRP including destination is 17,750. Invoice is 16,656. Price is 15,606. This is well back of invoice.
  • dwynnedwynne Posts: 4,018
    When I was RX-8 shopping a couple of years back, invoices I was shown by the dealer showed similar "Add ons". It appears they are normal for Mazda dealers and vary by region, it seems.

    Hey guys,

    I've being reading the forums a lot lately as my family is deciding on a car, which all but points to Mazda.
    They most likely will end up with this version of the Mazda Sport: http://www.mazda.ca/eng/getin/mazdamaker/estimator.asp

    I was wondering if there were any fellow Canadian's in Toronto or the GTA that would be able to help my family get the best possible deal. We are looking at financing between the range of $0 down - $2000 range. Does anyone have any tips or experiences they could perhaps share?

    Thanks guys.

    we are actually looking at leasing now instead. any advice?

    Hi all,

    Oh the phone, I worked out a deal with a fleet manager for a Mazda 3 S touring, and was wondering if you guys think I should go for it. BTW, this is in south bay/san jose area in California

    Mazda 3 S touring w/ manual tranny, silver color
    Options: wheel locks...yea thats it
    MSRP according to edmunds: $19, 070
    TMV according to edmunds: $18, 343
    Invoice according to edmunds.com: $17, 881
    Negotiated price: $17, 400
    -the price includes destination and assessment fees

    Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks
  • Yeah that's a good price. I got mine (same trim level, no options) for $18200 but that was back in November when the '07's weren't discounting so much. Make sure you get an out the door price. Don't let them quote you a low sale price then add on a bogus $599 documentation fee.

    Just bought a Mazda 3 Hatchback Grand Touring,
    Pearl White with all options, except Navi.
    Gave $500.00 under invoice and got the .9% for 36 mths. This is in the DFW, Texas area.
  • turnpike1turnpike1 Posts: 1
    Did anyone here use the Costco service, and if so was the price they gave you negotiable?
  • missyc1missyc1 Posts: 17
    Picked my car up lastnight. My car is so badass I LOVE IT!

    Phantom Blue looks different in every light. I'm so glad I went with it. It looks nothing like the chip you see in the brochures or online.

    They through in All-weather mats and the body colored door guards too! All for $19,292.00. I think I made pretty good. :D

    Looking at buying a new Mazda3 for our daughter who is going to college in Sept. Does anyone know when is the best time to buy a 2007 - would it be July/August before the 2008 comes in Sept? Also, do you know if there will be any rebates for college students?
  • dh5551212dh5551212 Posts: 3
    Yes, it would appear you donit.
  • shatzishatzi Posts: 15
    I am looking to buy a 2007 Mazda3 s Touring 4 dr sedan for my daughter. Options would include 1MC Moonroof and 6-CD changer and Black Leather Seat Upholstery. What is the best price we could anticipate. I have seen model w/o the leather seats for $14,990. Would it pay to buy it and put in the leather seats after? If so does anyone know of a good aftermarket company in the Long Island area that I could get estimates from. We are looking to put $10-12K down and finance the balance. Does anyone know when Mazda runs their sales for 2007 models - is it in the summer?

    Please respond soon as we are looking to purchase this vehicle in the next week or so.

    This is an online offer so I'm not sure if I can haggle to bring down the price or if I can even expect to get a lower price...

    Thanks!

    $17,254.00 Car (includes destination charge)
    $58 doc fee
    $1558.08 tax

    We passed on the mazda leather when we bought our 3s back in 2005. Looked and felt cheap to us and not as smooth as other leather we have seen and felt in other cars. In the case of mazda, I'd definitely go with aftermarket leather. Think you'd find it of better quality ans smoother. Check with the dealer as to who they farm their leather out to and go see them and compare. Definitely worth it.

    Looks like you are getting a very good deal. I live in Chicago NW suburbs and looking for the same car & options except that I want it in Galaxy Gray Mica.

    Can you tell me which dealer you got this offer from? Maybe we can buy together and get a better price. Let me know.
