    Can you create a new thread for the 2010 Mazda3??
  • Hi aviboy97. That sounds like a great discussion for the Future Vehicles section of the CarSpace forums. Here's a link for your convenience: Future Vehicles.

  • I really hope you didn't end up leasing this car for $380 per month. You could get a loan for $20,500, 60 months 6% for $396. Just $16 more and you could own it. You need to rethink that one.
  • Well, of course, comparing the long term purchase numbers to a lease doesn't make sense, right? I'm looking for a lease for certain reasons (business write off, new/different car in three years, etc.) that make the lease more appealing - so where should I be for a zero down lease? I'm looking for the best LEASE deal, not the lowest amount out of pocket overall....

    Thx...
  • Car Man,

    Thanks in advance for you assistance.

    My girlfriend is looking at a 2009 Mazda 3s Sedan Grand Touring with the Moonroof/Bose Pkg (2MC) and a rear wing spoiler (RSW). The MSRP is 23925 and the dealer quoted us a sale price of 20,488 which I believe is a very good deal.

    However, I am unaware of the current residual values and Money factors for 24mo/12k and 36/12k leases on this vehicle. Might you have those figures available? I believe these would be different from the 5-door model, but I apologize for wasting your time if these values are idenitcal.
  • No problem, tarheelbmw. You're right, the lease program for the sedan is slightly different than the program for the 5-Door. Mazda's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2009 Mazda3 S Sedan Grand Touring with 12,000 miles per year are .00285 and 68%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are .00229 and 56%.

    In September I made my Mazda 5 lease payment. The company mis-posted the amount and processed the check for $90.00 less than what it should have been. I made my October payment.

    In the last 24 hours I have received four phone calls from very rude individuals who each have given me a different story as to why I was late $90.00. I responded to the first call prior to researching the issue and stated I would send the amount immediately. I was then called three more times after that and was told they did not have an automated system to record the first calls.

    I asked to speak to a supervisor and was given the name of an individual who does not even exist in the company. I was given a fax number and faxed a copy of the check to that number. When I went to call the person I had faxed it too I was told he did not exist in the company. Eventually after four more calls I found that in fact the fax was received and the issue was being researched.

    Conclusion undoubtedly the most rude, arrogant and dishonest company I have ever done business with. I personally would not buy any product from Ford Motor company in the future including Ford, Volvo, Jaguar, Lincoln etc. If you do I would strongly recommend not financing through either Ford credit or Mazda.

    While the financial future of this company in tenuous they have decided to abuse the customer probably as a strategy to maintain a dwindling cash flow. I also will not do business with the dealer Scott Mazda in Allentown PA.

    I have filed a report with the FTC re the harassment by Ford Motor Company by telephone. The number of calls especially given the amount was excessive. The manner of the call agents varies from passive aggressive to out right hostel. These are cruel nasty people. They seem to find pleasure in harassing their consumers.

    Host, can we please do something about dfz1 post regarding his displeasure with Mazda Credit. He has posted in every Mazda thread. It's not really necessary.

    Hello all. I am purchasing a new Mazda 3 5-door and have a few questions. I really want the factory installed navigation in my car so does anyone know how it works? I know the graphics may be a little outdated but as long as it works effectively, that's what I want. Secondly, I was thinking about purchasing a cold air intake to give my car more power but how will it affect my gas mileage. I mean am I gonna sacrifice 2mpg or more? And the third issue I had was I was thinking about putting the spoiler from the Masdaspeed 3 on my Mazda 3. But my friend says that will also affect my gas mileage a little. Cmon! I mean how much heavier is the other spoiler. And lastly, should I get it in black or metroplolitan grey? Both gorgeous colors. Thanks!
  • Hi there I am Allan and I would think you will have trouble finding that particular car and also leasing one that old. It would be darn near impossible to lease one that old but if you find one please let me know that would be new to me and I would love to know how you did it.....

    Thank You
    Allan

  • Car Man, do you have anything on the MazdaSpeed 3?
    Thanks!
  • Hi azbriank. Unfortunately, Mazda is not currently providing any lease support on the MazdaSpeed3. As a result, it really does not make sense to lease one at this time.

  • Here you go, jicbulk. Mazda's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2009 Mazda3 Sedan s GT with 15,000 miles per year are .00237 and 63%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are .00151 and 52%. If you were to lease with only 12,000 miles per year, this car's residual values would be 2% higher.
