Vehicle condition (accidents, tire wear, etc.), options, and other details: Perfect.
- TIER 1: You must have Tier 1 credit like me (Mazda makes you fill out a credit sheet (free) and you must be the same Credit Tier as me or higher. I am Tier 1).
- $1800: I am asking a $1800 payment plus take over the lease (plus Mazda directly charges the $200 AFTER you fill out the credit sheet and qualify. And then whatever Dept of Motor Vehicles charges for title transfer).
- NOT $529/month: Here is why I am asking the $1800. I wrote Gunther Mazda’s internet sales dept and asked for the price to lease my exact 2021 vehicle. They told me “$439 a month plus $1995 down + tax.” so if you spread the $1995 across the 36 months (that is $55.42 a month) and add 7% tax, that comes to $529 a month! (and you would pay, with tax, $360 a month). So for the 31 months remaining, that is over $5200 more!
