2017.5 Mazda 6 Touring is as sweet as a bag of donuts!
November 6, 2018
By far my best new car buying experience in 43 years of adulthood. I shopped a long time for a mid-size sedan and unlike 2018 Camry, Accord, Fusion, Sonata or Optima, I got a sports car that is also a nice size family sedan. This is fantastic; cannot believe Mazda does not sell more 6's. Negotiating (online) with Marc Metzler and Ben Kowalewski was a reasonable experience. My trade was in excellent condition and unlike most dealers, they did not try to lowball it. Odd that they added tint after the deal was agreed to for no tint. Tint is nice for Florida but hard for old eyes to see through driving at night. I'll leave it for now. Amazed there was no hard sale or even an offer from their finance guy for extended warranty, paint protection, specialty insurance, or anything else. My wife was ecstatic because she does not like my dickering over those last minute additions. Also great that Mazda Giant doesn't' have add on window sticker like most others dealerships (e.g. some ridiculously high like Courtesy Toyota & Brandon Hyundai). The multiple incentives I was entitled to were not itemized, so I may have paid up to a grand too much; but Ben would not budge further. This trim level is exactly the exact soul red sedan that I wanted inside and out and I would do it again. We also have a 2012 SkyActiv Mazda 3 in the family, so I know they are really great cars!
