This is my first Mazda, so I went for the Maintenance package, the extended warranty (I too will probably blow through the 36K package in a little over a year) and the GAP insurance (which I'll keep until the car is about 2 years old). I was pleasantly surprised that the bumper to bumper also covers user error (ie flinging your coffee at the infotainment screen and shorting it out).I got the mud flaps included for no additional price (about $150 in parts). I also opted for the 10 year extended bumper to bumper warranty, which was an additional $2,000. I put so many miles on my car that i would burn through the bumper to bumper in little over a year (36K Miles). So i figure this way i'll be worry free for three years. I got a GT with all the bells and whistles and i figure it wouldn't take much going wrong with an electrical feature to burn through $2K. Also, the extended warranty has some nice features like road side assistance where they will tow you to a Mazda dealer and hook you up with a loaner. Not to soung cliche but this worry free guarantee is well worth it to me when i'm two hours away from home often for business.
Apparently the $2K bumper to bumper is the same across all their vehicles no matter the trim.
I've never purchased a new car before so maybe this is typical, but as Makana said I was happy there were no hidden fees. I knew i wanted the CX-3 they had on their lot and i went into the dealer ready for battle, and they were like "nope, you just pay the sticker price on the vehicle, nothing else." Of course that doesn't count Registrations, Insurance, Taxes, and Title.
I guess they are like Sport Carpets to match the racing pedals you can install on this 146 HP hotrod. I am not sure why you would want those carpets, the standard ones are fine. I will be in the market for some rubber mats come winter.I meant those, which don't come standard.
Agreed! We knocked off a few hundred dollars off of one the packages we got.Anyone who purchases dealer provided extras and additional services/coverages, make sure you negotiate those prices. They typically have a TON of markup which is why they dealers give such a hard sell on them.
