You cant just say you finalized a deal without telling us what that is!

Haha, if you don't mind... what kind of deal did you get?

OK. Red GT with compass/autodim mirror and wheel locks. No trade - cash deal. $24,765 MSRP and got it for $23,800 including all fees (doc fee, etc), temp tags, some throw in freebies(oil changes, free dinner, couple other things), etc. Pretty good deal I think.

Damn, and Im looking at MSRP out the door for a GT w Navi.

You got under MSRP OTD???? My hat tips to you sir.

I agree, that's a pretty sweet deal!!

Boost Addict, I think that your area might be different, but I'd really push hard to get below sticker for your ride. I got the GT w/ Navi for $600 under sticker because there is a lot more profit built in for the dealers when you get the car fully loaded. But like I said, you may have a hard time because it sounds like CA had really high markups to begin with.

Yeah, I seriously doubt that deal is OTD, he just said that all fees were included and some freebies, if that is with taxes then it's an amazing deal.

Hey Everyone, I havent posted in a while, but I have been watching the boards. I just got a silver GT last night for $500 under msrp with the processing fee waived as well. I thought it was a pretty good deal. They just got the car in and no test drives, which was a prerequisite for me. So far, I love it. It feels so solid on the road and cant wait to put more miles on it. Also, if anyone is in the area, I bought the car from Jason at Gaithersburg Mazda. He was a great salesman, a little shy, but he got me in and out in an hour and a half and everyone was super nice. They didnt even push any extended warranty or services. I did opt to get the rubber cargo mat and bumper protectors though. And after I got it, I went and picked up a large chair that I had bought a few days before and threw it in the back, no problem. I love the versatility of this car. Hopefully more good posts to come! :klavergreg:

Congratulations on the new car, sounds like a nice deal to me.

Comparing deals with sales tax is apples and oranges in my opinion, at least with the way the laws are in Missouri. If I have a trade-in, I would only pay sales tax on the difference but if I pay cash I would pay sales tax on the whole amount. The amount of the sales tax could be considerably different but really doesn't change the deal from the dealer. If I pay cash for a car and pay sales tax on the whole amount and then later sell one of my other vehicles, I can then make a claim for sales tax reimbursement and get a check back from the State. This makes it work as if I had traded the car in and only paid sales tax on the difference but it doesn't change the deal I had with the dealer.

Also, differing sales tax rates could make a big difference. If I buy in an area that has a very low sales tax rate and my total outlay is less than someone else's, does that mean the dealer gave me a better deal? Not necessarily as I might have actually paid more for the car but a little less after sales tax. In that situation, I actually got a worse deal from the dealer.

That's true, we were just wondering if your deal included sales tax or not, because almost all of us (not in Delaware I believe) are paying some sort of sales tax. Just trying to get an understanding of whether the deal you got was excellent or "OMG that was the greatest deal of all time :shock:"

Either way, great deal, great car, enjoy!

LOL. Definitely not the greatest deal of all time but not too bad.

Yeah, wasn't saying that it was, just that we were trying to differentiate whether it was or just a great deal.
