You aren't going to find a 2017 Mazda3 at this point, unhaggle should have removed it by now.

As Bobble mentioned currently the lease works out to be better than a cash/finance in the end... and with $8000 almost anyone can get approved.
$8k is the down payment?

I bought a 2017 Mazda 5 from Jeff. Totally awesome buying experience, I highly recommend him!

When I bought the car, Jeff said that the oil change interval is no longer 4 months but 6 months. The manual that came with the car says 4 months. Which is right? Jeff, do you have any source for the 6 months? (something that I can point to if I have any warranty issues) I don't drive 8k km even in 6 months, let alone 4.

Does anyone know if the 2016.5 GX AWD is pre-wired for a backup camera? Ideally I'd like to add the OEM unit and was wondering how to go about doing that. Thanks!

Is $300 over invoice do-able on a 2017 CX-5 GS AWD if financing?

Includes
-$250 customer signing bonus
-$400 grad rebate
-$425 upgrade to Mazda
+1402 for block heater, GPS, remote starter
+13% tax
After all the fees, On the road = 35979.50

Dear Unhaggle, would you be so kind and provide pricing for 2018 Mazda3 GS 6MT and 2018 Mazda3 GT 6MT?

Are block heaters installed at the dealership? I would have thought they would ship with the car from the factory.

Still waiting on better incentives for the new CX5. Any guess as to best month/time for top savings? So far really nothing to get excited about, promotion-wise.

They're selling like hotcakes so doubt there'll be much promotion wise

Thanks for the kudos..

As for the oil changes, it turns out I was wrong, the oil changes for the Mazda5 are actually 4 months as it is the only car is Mazda's lineup that has yet to receive the skyactiv upgrade.

Nope, and as it sits now, it isn't available as an accessory

$300 is a bit tight, closer to $400 maybe.

Good news is that the interest rate dropped a bit for October, bad news is the $250 signing bonus is gone.

Not really.. accessories normally have about 10% markup if that.

Starter is about $700.. not sure why you would want a block heater as well... unless you live in Thunderbay.

They are installed at the dealership.. CX3 is the worst one as it is 3hrs to install..

Yeah that sucks. There doesn't seem to be any practical reason why it isn't available, especially since the AWD models have the same infotainment system. It just deprives your service deptartment of a sale.

What do you recommend to your GX customers (or those who don't have a backup camera) and want something that looks stock, ie: no secondary screen on the dash?

For October the 2017 CX-9 has a $2000 retail cash rebate. This shows up in the Build & Price tool online.

There is also a $1,000 "winter tire credit" which I understand can be received as a cash discount.

Lastly I am eligible for a $1,000 loyalty discount.

Is anyone able to confirm if these can all be stacked?
