Best Kia and Mazda dealerships in the GTA?

Currently in the market for a new car, and narrowed my choices down to either the Optima or the Mazda6. Which dealerships in Toronto/GTA are the best in terms of service and reputation? I've heard of good things about Scarboro Kia and Gyro Mazda. Any recommendations?

Trento Kia always has been good to me. But I've been a customer for 10+ years back when they were Trento Subaru Suzuki.

Avoid 427 KIA. Worst service ever. Incompetent and incredibly rude.

My old Altima is falling apart at the seams so now it's time to get into something new. I've narrowed my choices down to these 2. Which one would be the better choice? For what it's worth, I value driving dynamics over fuel economy and comfort as I don't put too much km on my car to begin with.

Since you stated you value driving dynamics, the Mazda6 would be your no-brainer choice.

KIA Optima sometimes has $4000 - $7000 off factory rebate, depending on the month.

Mazda 6 is also a good choice. Previous models had rust problems, you might want to research about this generation, I'm not sure.

Yeah that's what the reviews are saying. A lot of the negatives are centered around the choppy ride quality due to the car leaning towards the sportier side, but I guess that's part and parcel if you want a fun mid-size car within a reasonable budget

The Mazda will cost more, but it'll be better in every way.

Do you have any experience with driving the 6?

The car is a 2016 Mazda 6 GX. 0 km, never been driven. I used Unhaggle to try and get the best price. MSRP is $26,000, and I was quoted the invoice price at $24,593. Including the 3% dealer profit, taxes, mandatory fees as well as financing costs, my ALL-IN cash price is $29,864, so basically $30,000. I'm going to be financing at 1.99% over 84 months - $168/biweekly payments. Does this look like a good deal? I haven't signed anything yet or put any deposits down, and I'm still waiting to hear back from a couple of other dealers who I email-bombed asking to beat this price. But from all the research I've done, it doesn't look like I can get a better deal on a brand new Mazda 6.

7 years at 2%? Buy something cheaper.

Also I've never seen a car with 0km,who promised that?

You are financing a base model for 7 years? Ouch. Have you considered sizing down to Compact (Mazda 3) instead?

In any case, deal wise you should reach out directly to Jeff-TheBiz from Mazda thread. He is the go to Mazda person on this board and should be able to get you something better than 3% over.
