Here’s the lowest bid I’ve gotten so far from a dealer in the area. Just looking for some feedback on how good it is and how much room you think I have to bring the monthly down past what it is right now.
$294/mo, all-in incl. tax
MF / Residual: .00001% / 52%
Selling Price: 21616.67 (I think? Might not be reading it right)
I ended up almost exactly on this deal for a Mazda 3 Select 36/12 near end of July in SouthFlorida after a lot of negotiating and checking dealers from Orlando to Miami.
Mazda 3 Select Sedan FWD
Selling Price: $19,500
Included $720 Mazda lease cash
Adjusted Cap Cost: $21,400
Included $595 Mazda Acq fee
Florida Doc Fees $800 (#&&$&&#!)
Goverment/License Fees/Upfront Taxes $450
Residual = 51% (set by Mazda/Chase Financial); $11,995
MF = .00001 (set by Mazda/Chase Financial); watch for markup
Payment: $265 + tax
Note: I did not have Mazda loyalty but if I did that is $750 additional discount and another $750 if you have a Mazda 3. This deal would be $220+ tax monthly if I had Mazda 3 loyalty
To close this they added free maintenance (oil change and rotations) for the first 30K and tinted windows. I figured this was worth $10+ a month.
Likely going to buy the car at lease end for $11,995 unless it has quality issues or a CarFax accident mark. I went for the free financing on the lease and built-in GAP lease insurance with teen drivers.
There was maybe another $10 a month at the most from another dealer by waiting but the maintenance/tint and getting the color desired took priority
Yes a Civic leased better and the Accord 1.5T was close, but we were really impressed with the new Mazda 3 for the entry sedan segment with teen drivers. Didn’t like the new Corolla and Jetta R-line lease was not working out at all.
My 6-month Mazda 3 insurance was also 15% lower than Honda and 20% lower than Jetta when quoted by State Farm
Yes. No harm in trying to work more dealers. Multiple dealers told me they were losing money and it was a matter of who was willing to lose the most. Yet three of them came in under the $270 a month $0 DAS before monthly tax. LOL
A few talked a big game said others were lying and bait and switch and go sign the deal immediatley if true. Blah blah blah…
Mazda is sucking right now. The new 3 isn’t selling very well. There should be more room to deal this month.
It is a nicely designed car packed with safety features and a new design for 2019. Really been impressed with the car over the first few weeks.
Hey folks, just an update - I’ve gotten this down to $285/mo (all-in, taxes included) + free washes + they deliver the car, so I think I’m going to take the deal. Haven’t had much luck getting lower than this, but I’m pretty happy with it.
Question - what do I need to look out for on the paperwork to make sure they’re not pushing addons on me and that the deal is exactly what they say? Is there a guide on this somewhere?
