I'm Leaving!
« on: March 26, 2011, 09:37:27 AM »
Hi All,

After 3 years of driving the superb Mazda 3 it's time to get a new car.  Unfortunately Mazda's prices aren't competitive for my lease so I'm off to Vauxhall.

The 3 has been a fantastic car and I'm really quite sad to see it go.  Although I've not been on the forum much lately it was a great source of information and help when I got the car, so thank you all for the effort you put in.

Hopefully I'll be a Mazda owner again soon.

Thanks Stu,

the prices are crazy from Mazda at present.  A 1.6 TD TS2 will cost me £3,187 where as the Astra 1.7 cDTI Elite was £499 (on motability)  The astra is better spec'd and a whole lot cheaper.  My current 1.6 TS was available for £0, it's now £1,205. 

It's a real shame as I had no intention of moving away from Mazda, but it looks as though Mazda are moving away from Motability.

For those that don't know Motability take your benefit to pay for the car.  it's cheaper than a private sale but its not a free car.
