    Finally bit the bullet yesterday. Picked up an i GT (Sangria Red) with Moon/Bose from Wayne Mazda, NJ. Internet sales matched Fitzmall of MD price of $22,900 plus tax tags Destination and dealer fees.
    Out-The-Door price was $26,112.
    Lovin' it! Good luck all, and Happy Father's Day!!! :)

    Thanks for all of the valuable information each of you have shared.

    I note however that not many folks have referenced the purchase of the S grand touring. I configured the vehicle online to come to $31,730. As of this mornings brief conversation with a dealer I think there is a $2K rebate on the grand touring S, and I can get a $1K Mazda owner loyalty rebate.

    If I get the $2K manufacturer rebate I assume I can't get the $1,500 and 2.9% financing deal from the dealer correct?

    What would a good deal be for this vehicle?
  • I am looking for a 2009 Mazda 6 i Touring 4 cyl auto with moonroof/bose and spoiler. It does not seem like $21,600 is a good deal compared to some I have read, but that about the best I can do. This is after $2000 dealer cash, not the 0% -1000 rebate, only can get one or the other, I don't have loyalty or preferred or anything else. This includes all dealer fees etc. Not Tax Title or licensing.

    One person I saw here recieved $19,969 for seemingly the same thing. Not sure about spoiler on that one, but still thats only about $400.

    Can I get some feedback on this? The S plan looks like not such a good deal either, with it being around $22,000.

    Thanks all!

    I think it is a good deal in most parts of the country. If you get Moonroof/Bose, that implies you are also getting the Convenience Package; is that right?

    If you go to Truecar.com to price that vehicle out, it looks like nationally, very few people are getting that car for 21.6k before title or taxes. I think it's helping you that in your region there are $2000 "dealer cash" (is that dealer cash related to your financing? or is it just a regional incentive for all purchasers?).

    In any case, there certainly could be specific dealers and regions that would sell at lower prices, somewhere in the country, but also there are likely to be many more who don't need to drop the price to 21.6k to sell the car.

    In my case I had to rush to unload a beat-up failing 15 year old Nissan with a newly imploding radiator to trade in, so my capacity to shop around was limited.

    I got a car like yours, but NOT with the Bose Package for a price of roughly 21.5-22k. It's tricky because they marked up my worthless tradein as being valued suggest a much higher price. However, if I had gotten them to offer 21.6k INCLUDING the moonroof/bose (I tried), it would have been great.

    If you really want to try for a better price, you could email/fax a whole bunch of dealers up to 200 miles away with exact specs and basically indicate you'll buy whoever comes in at, say $20.9k. Then wait, and recontact them as the month goes on to see who bites. It's not guaranteed to get you a better price, but my understanding is that if a better price is to be found in your region, playing this out over a month or so will likely help find it.
  • This is for the Moonroof/Bose pkg, not including the convenience pkg. The Dealer cash is from the manufacturer to the dealer and replaces the financing offer of 0%-2.9% and $1000 rebate. S Plan will show you that at least, have to talk to the dealer about it to find out what the current offer is.

    Thanks for the feedback and I hope you enjoy your car. With the economy being down, cars are not selling well. So just not sure what a "real" good price would be. The rebates change and people have different options and different special rebates. Would rather not leave $1000 on the table for the purchase when I know they are killing me on the trade-in.

    Anyone actually seen a 6i Grand Touring MANUAL in the flesh?
  • waterbuck1waterbuck1 Posts: 11
    Okay-
    truecar.com, assuming an Alabama purchaser, asserts that there is presently a $1000 incentive (by the way, I purchased 2.5 weeks ago and there was no incentive then here in Alabama; on the other hand, I'll bet that the Dealer might have gotten cash from the manufacturer, and they simply didn't tell me).

    Still, if I price your car, then Truecar.com thinks that a "great price" (rarely achieved) is <$21,755, and that a "good price" would be <$22,090.

    So, your $21,600 looks like a "great price" in the Truecar world. Add $1500 for tax, title and licensing and you are at 23.1k. If you are paying cash and this is the price, it's a totally good price, and yeah--there are probably people on this same forum in different parts of the country who worked it down from 21.6k to 20.6k, either because of desperate dealers with too much local competition, or because the purchaser was willing to do the fax/email thing and wait around . Since this is 6/30/09, my guess is you could play this game out in July if you wanted to.

    the one thing to sort out is whether this price is "great" precisely because they are screwing you on the trade-in. KBB.com (kelly blue book) can give you a fair appraisal of your used car (you can even cross-check it with Edmunds). If you have a 3 year old Camry or something, that's worth real money and you should try to get the dealer to use precisely what Kelly says its real value is, for tradein to a dealer (the dealer tradein value is always less than private market sales; I'm just making the assumption that you don't want to sell this on the private market). On the other hand, I was dealing with a 15 year old junker,and frankly I had a Toyota dealer tell me that they just had no use for it as a tradein, even though the Kelly Blue Book said it was worth $400-700.

    good luck!

    Prices are really starting to come down now on the 6 and most other cars, redesigned or not, out there.

    The economy is worsening, and car dealers are going to need big incentives from manufacturers to move metal.

    Look for blockbuster deals in about 2-3 months.

    Just bought this elusive veh last night. In the St. Louis area there are 4 of these cars, I think all of them have moon/tunes pkg.
  • moose5778moose5778 Posts: 3
    I just bought our i GT moon/tunes manual last eve. Thanks for your post it gave me confidence when I presented my offer of 22.9 - out the door price was 23.000 did not include TTL. Good luck
  • sporin71sporin71 Posts: 26

    I was just wondering if this was a good price for an 09 iTouring with the Bose/ Moonroof + Convenience package

    I was offered $22820 + TT&L

    I would assume this is a good price? think I can try to bring it down/ do better?

    Also, what do you guys think, should I buy the 09 or wait for the 2010 mazda 6 to come out? anything to wait for since the 6 will be much cheaper as the 2010 approaches..
  • waterbuck1waterbuck1 Posts: 11
    I have not seen reports on the 2010 Mazda 6, and you could just google that to make sure no major changes are planned. However, since the 2009 was "completely redesigned" the changes for 2010 might be pretty modest if any.

    I think the price you are offered is good. It's never bad to try a bit more, but unless you are in a very favorable market, I don't think they will move more than 300 or 400 bucks.
    good luck.
  • waterbuck1waterbuck1 Posts: 11
    little hard to tell for sure, but from reading about the 2010 lineup, I think that an iTouring with Convenience Package (2009) will be hard to match without going up to a Grand Touring Plus in 2010.

    In essence, for 2010, I think Mazda is reconfiguring how features are offered so that you will be pushed much harder to "buy up" to a higher tier if you want all the items available on a 2009 iTouring with Convenience Package.
    link title

    Of course they could drop prices anyway, in which case, this kind of concern doesn't matter too much.

    there won't actually be a "convenience package" in 2010. So to get an iTouring with extras like Bluetooth and the Blindspot warning system, you would go for the "itouring plus". However, that does NOT have dual zone automatic climate control, leather trimming on the seats or the "welcome lighting system". To get that all in one, you would have to go fro the Grand Touring.

    To get the PUsh-button start and the Mazda Advanced Keyless entry (both offered in the 2009 Convenience package), you would need to buy the "Technology Package" which will be available on the GT models only.

    Overall, my view has been that the 2009 Mazda 6 doesn't really turn out to be less expensive than the 2009 Accord or Camry, save for the fact that in 2009, Mazda figured out how to package in a lot of extra cool features in that one "convenience package" added onto the mid-tier card (i Touring), which really was quite a value (partial leather seats, welcome lighting, rain-sensing wipers, blindspot monitoring, automatic headlights, advanced keyless entry, pushbutton start).

    My interpretation of the changes for 2010 is that the car won't drive or look different, but you'll be forced to purchase "up" to get those things. At that point you might really have to pay a bit extra.

    According to a dealer I contacted, the new Mazda6's will be out in September. I plan to buy a new car sometime in August, so this may work in my favor.

    And if you guys go HERE

    and go to mazda 6, the build, they actually have the MSRP of the 2010's, although I do not how accurate they are.
  • sfogvipersfogviper Posts: 6
    Thanks for posting the link to that dealer! In reviewing the specs, it looks pretty much spot-on to what had been posted here before.

    I'm shopping for a 6s GT, so I built a 2010 with tech package to where it looks like everything matches the 09. At first I was missing the blind spot monitoring, but it's listed as a standard GT feature (overtaking sensor). Only other things I'm not seeing explicitly mentioned are the welcome lighting (which was previously listed here as standard on GT) and Bluetooth (which is, I'm assuming, listed as "voice activating system includes phone" - I don't see any reason to expect a change here).

    Glad to see the MSRPs of the two are close ($30975 now versus $31120 in 2010). Now to figure out if I can get a much better deal on an 09 in a month or so...

    2009 mazda6 sedan i sport 2.5 auto no other options

    sticker price was just under $22k

    paid 19477 plus tax title, etc.

    could have saved another grand but took the 2.9 financing, and probably could have whittled them down another couple hundred but they were good to work with and the salesperson treated me professionally with no pressure, so they deserve to make a living.

    supply of 09s in the 4-cyl getting real thin here in the kansas city area.

    transaction in zip 64086 for anyone looking locally. cheers
  • Hey, I paid 21,000 , which included TT&L for my new 09 Mazda 6, It was the I touring with convenience. I bought it a little over a month ago, so better prices are to be had now. Remember to get the preferred buyers card! it saves you 500 dollars
  • Excellent, glad to hear it, sounds like a great deal!
  • ldislerldisler Posts: 83
    Left a deposit on a in stock Mazda5 @8:00 pm. Called them @2:00 the next day to cancel the deal and they refuse to refund my deposit. The salesman never said
    it wasn't refundable. What do I do now?
  • moose5778moose5778 Posts: 3
    I live in MO. I did the same thing last week. The dealership gladly returned my deposit. Sorry foryour troubles. In MO we have a 72 hr rule that allows the purchaser to back out within 72 hours. I would look at your state laws to see if you have a similar law
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 104,108
    The three day right of recission doesn't apply to car sales. They gave your deposit back, because you didn't consummate a sale (as they should).

    If you had taken delivery of the car, there is no law that gives you the right to take it back within a specified length of time. (Hence the phrase, "over the curb").

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    I noticed that in California, you get a $2000 rebate plus Zero percent financing for 36 months. In Florida, you only get $1000 rebate with Zero percent financing for 36 months.

    That's a pretty big difference. I think that Mazda will raise the rebates on the 2009 Mazda6 starting in August , at least matching California. What do you think the prospects are for higher rebates with the 2010s on their way?
  • m6userm6user Posts: 3,181
    There may be some quiet dealer cash paid but don't think Mazda will go over $2000 for a consumer rebate.
  • mitchfloridamitchflorida Posts: 419
    The low interest loans that Mazda has been supplying are a value worth an additional $1000. I look to see some huge sales during Labor Day Weekend. That is always a good time to purchase. Also end of the year sales is the final blow out of last years models.

    I can afford to wait. .will look for the best deal on the 2009s after 2010s start arriving.
  • Can anyone tell me what the s plan price ( family and friends) is for an I grand touring and if I could do better on my own at this time of the year? I would be paying cash.
    Ebony black
    5 speed automatic
    2.5 liter, 4 cylinder
    moonroof bose pkg
    msrp: 28,440

    Any input would be greatly appreciated! :)
  • mitchfloridamitchflorida Posts: 419
    If you pay cash, it would be $23,917 + Tax , License, and dealer fees. That is for July.
  • Thanks alot Mitchflorida!

    gypo4:

    If you are leaning to an "i" with Convenience and Bose, you should consider the Grand Touring model. This model has the convenience package and all of the GT's are shipped with the Bose package. And, the GT has heated seats. Find Browns Mazda on the web and use their price as a benchmark. There are lots of GT's left in the lots.

    Personally I drove the GT and while I liked the car, I was totally unimpressed with the Bose system and I wont pay up for it. I have no idea why this is considered a premium system. :shades:
