Opinion on 2015 Mazda3 Hatchback GS

Hi RFD Automotive,

I'm buying my first car and here is what I've negotiated with a Mazda dealer so far.

2015 Mazda3 GS Hatchback
- 32000 km
- Certified Pre-Owned
- $15000 + tax; $5000 down, $10000+tax at 0.99% for two years. Final price around $17100.
Unfortunately, there is no link on their website to the car.

Do you think this is reasonable? Can I do better?

Thank you.

Seems like a good deal. I paid $14.5k OTR for a 2014 Mazda3 GS with convenience, and sunroof package with 60k. However that was at a nissan dealership, and there is usually extra value when buying from mazda dealerships directly.

Is your car auto? Convenience package? Moonroof package?

My friend bought his Mazda 3, GS Hatchback, 2015 with 53,000kms on it.

Walked out for $14,500 or so. Was bought at a place called Wilson's in Guelph. Wasn't a specialist Mazda dealership per se, but they had about 75% mazdas.

It's auto. No convenience package. No moonroof.

I own the same car as a 4 door sedan with the convenience package.

I'd recommend getting the Convenience Pkg, if I recall it added leather steering wheel, shifter and heated seats.

Because it's a 2015 you get unlimited mileage warranty anyway, so the CPO/7 year warranty doesn't really add value anymore.

Not a bad deal, but I'd push a little more on price or look for a GS w/Conv. for a similar price if I were in your shoes.

Good luck!

Does that price include sales tax?

Seems like an ok price. If it helps at all to compare, I picked up a 2014 GS with 90k for 11k +taxes, manual, convenience package yes but no moonroof.

It IS a convenience package after all :D There is leather padding on the wheel and shifter and front seats are heated.

Initially it wasn't CPO'd, I had them add it for $500. And adding that allows me to get the Recent Graduate rebate of $500 so its like I'm getting it for free. Worth it I think.
