Before visiting a dealer or testing a vehicle, you may want to do a little research online. You will find that there are many different online resources that can not only tell you all about your Mazda but also compare your Mazda vehicle to other similar vehicles on the market today. Sometimes the comparison will make you change your mind, but sometimes it will confirm that your choice for experienced mechanics is the right one.
Maybe you know someone who drives a Mazda. Find out which Mazda dealers have visited and which ones they prefer. After all, who gets their business when they buy their car? These are people you will want to visit or avoid depending on their opinion.
You will need to check with your local Mazda dealer which bank they will use to finance your car, unless you pay cash, of course. If you need financing and know your own credit situation, knowing the financial company the dealer deals with will help you decide which Mazda dealer to do business with. For example, if you have bad credit, you know you can't negotiate with a merchant who only deals with high-end banks.
After all, the dealership is the best way to know which car you are going to buy. Stop by one of the Mazda dealerships and see if they can inspect some cars. Test the pair you like and see if it's the right car for you. Your dealer is more than willing to let you fully review your options when they are ready to run your business.
