Hello Mazda Lovers!....

I just got a New (used) 2008 Mazda 3 grand touring. And seriously it is A-m-a-z-i-n-g!
Prior to this car I was driving a old piece of crap 93 Chevy S10....what a piece.

Finding the right Mazda 3 for me at a right price was no easy task- I was quick to find out that dealers are thirsty for a sale. I was fortunate to of bought mine at the right time (end of the month) AND I got it for a decent deal. The KBB price listed with all the features was $20,900 and I walked out of the dealership paying $18,600 (including everything from sales tax to license fees) Thats about a savings of $3,500+ off Kbb!!

Just a tip....

How did I get that much off?....

1.) The horrible economic recession puts some dealerships in a "selling mode" in that the NEED to sell cars to meet there quota. And sense a lot less people are buying cars because of job loss, inflation, ect. Isn't this recession great? totally jk

2.) It was a corporate car...
Corporate car means that Sales personal from either Japan or other Countries use a companies car to drive around in the states. Mazda 3 is a great car to drive everywhere!
(the dealership says they can stay in the states for up to 9 months)

3.) Last, I offered it all in Cash...Show me the MULA!
Dealerships sometimes like to have all the cash up front because it makes the transaction smoother and easier.

Thanks for reading!
