07 mazda 3 2.3 to 07 mazda 6 v6
Okay so, here's the story:
Last august my parents bought me a 2007 mazda 3 S automatic. I wanted a manual, however they didn't really agree with that. I actually didn't even want the car and would have been happy with a $4000 integra. Regardless, they ended up buying it for me and I said I'd help out paying for it due to the fact that I feel bad receiving such a large gift. I have put down like 1200 towards it so far (we've paid about 3k of it off so far, 36 months 0% interest 0 down)
Anyways, my parents are looking for a new car. However they like how my 3 drives, so I told them to get a mazda 5 as it's basically a minivanified 3. So we went to the dealer and my dad didn't really like the 5. However while we were leaving we saw an 07 mazda 6 v6 mtx for $17995. MSRP is/was 23k! $5k off of msrp and it's still a new car. So we test drove it and I really liked it.
Leading on to the dillema. My dad offered to buy my the car, and my mom and dad will stick with my 3 which they like. Is $18K for a v6 6 a good deal? Am I going to be happy going to a v6 6? Anyone familiar with gas mileage? I'm assuming city won't be much worse since the 2.3 isn't great as it is... The biggest negative I've seen so far is the wide turning circle on the 6 vs the 3.
Also, on mazdausa it says $3000 cash back or 0% financing for 72 months on an 07 6. Do you guys think that 3K is already taken into account? And if so can I push to get the 0% financing as well? 0% financing at 72 months would be a scant $250 a month, which I'd most likely pay the majority of (due to me not liking huge gifts and all)
Lastly, am I going to get tired of mtx? My brother tells me im going to hate it in about 3 months.
Thanks for the advice.
