Half of the vehicle purchasing process is determining which model you would like to add to your driving arsenal. After that is accomplished, you have to decide whether you would like to buy or lease your prospective vehicle. If you aren’t sure of what each path entails, we would be happy to fill you in with all of the details so you can get your automotive endeavors started off on the right foot. Then, when you make up your mind, you can head over to our Finance Department at Wantagh Mazda.

Leasing

Let’s get the ball rolling by diving into the path that more and more potential drivers are taking as time passes. Otherwise known as leasing, this mode of automotive acquisition is synonymous with borrowing and allows you to take home one of our fantastic Mazda driving options for a timeframe and mileage that is heavily dependent on your driving needs and future goals. This is especially perfect for commuters that tend to grow bored of their vehicles after an extended period of time, because you will be able to upgrade to one of the latest iterations on our lot the moment that your contract ends. The best part is that your monthly payments will be a fraction of the price of buying because you will only have to foot the bill for the Mazda’s depreciated value. Then, if you choose to not upgrade, you can always return the keys or pay the remaining cost.

Buying

On the other side of the purchasing spectrum is your ability to buy the vehicle you are keen on outright for its full value. When you drop by our Finance Department, you will receive a one-on-one consultation where we split up the cost of the driving option over a period of time that ranges anywhere from four to seven years. In that window you will slowly chip away at the vehicle’s value by making monthly contributions. Then, when your contract is up, you will have achieved ownership to use it as a trade-in or pass it down to your teen when they start driving. If this sounds like the right plan for you, you can get a better idea of what you can afford by plugging some numbers into our online Payment Calculator. Then, you can fill out the Finance Application so we can get a head start on your loan options.

Inventory

If you haven’t already, you can start looking through the vehicles that we have in stock right from home! Since both buying and leasing share our new Mazdas in common, that’s where we will wrap up this overview. When you click on the corresponding link at the top of your screen, you will be able to select your preferred driving option and dive even deeper by using the filters on the left side of your screen on the inventory page. If you aren’t sure of what will fit your daily requirements best, then we would be happy to give suggestions! The Mazda CX-9 and Mazda CX-5 are perfect for the modern adventurer that requires ample space for passengers and essentials alike. If you would prefer a sedan that boasts premier performance specs, then you can’t go wrong with the Mazda3 or Mazda6!

Once you decide whether to buy vs lease near Garden City, NY, make your way down to Wantagh Mazda. We are located at 3180 Sunrise Highway in Wantagh, NY.

I can not say how much I greatly appreciate the service department especially Craig at Wantagh Mazda. They are always there for me when I need help with a flat tire and never turn me away because they are too busy. Even when it is time for the required maintenance they do not pressure me nor overcharge me for things I do not need. Thank you for being there for me and your honesty.

We bought a CX5 at this dealership three years ago. We dealt with Victor and Phil. We were well-treated and enjoyed the experience. We've only taken the vehicle there for routine service over the last three years. (It only required one repair item that was covered by warranty). We are 100% satisfied with the service we received from Craig (Ass't service manager) and Alex (service manager). The quality of the work and the prices were great. We have found all work was done properly and the prices charged were very reasonable. I can say that WE TRUST THIS DEALERSHIP and we'll be back next time we need a new car!

DESERVING OF THEIR TOP SPOT ON DEALER RATER!

Charles N

Is it possible to give five stars to a dealer who never even sold you a car? YES! This is about my experience with Wantagh Mazda, a dealer so focused on customer service, that even when Joe, their sales manager, couldn't sell me the Mazda I wanted, he made sure I got the car anyway. Here's how that happened. I was looking for a 2020 CX-5 Signature in 1 of 2 colors which, due to Mazda's COVID production shutdowns, I couldn't find anywhere. Wantagh Mazda is about 40 miles from my home, but I reached out to them because they are the top-rated Mazda dealer on DealerRater in the NY area. That was important to me because I hate getting the runaround from unscrupulous dealerships, which still happens far too often. Joe made his intentions immediately clear to me: "I will do everything I can to help get this car for you, but I am not going to string you along if I can't." That is the kind of honest, no-nonsense approach that I find is all too rare when shopping for a new car. After much searching--and a few close calls with dealers who showed the Mazda I wanted in inventory, but turned out not to actually have the cars--Joe finally found the CX-5 Signature that I wanted in red, which was my top choice. He did his best to get if for me, trying to arrange a car swap with the dealer who had it, but the dealer didn't want to give it up. At that point, most dealers would have simply said, "Sorry, I can't get the car" and then tried to sell me on something else that they had in inventory or knew that they could get. Instead, Joe said, "I know you really want this car, so here's the contact info for the dealer I found who has it, here's the email for their sales manager who I've been talking to, and see if they'll sell it to you directly." Well, I did contact that dealer and I'm now driving EXACTLY the 2020 Mazda CX-5 Signature in red that I wanted, and it's all thanks to Joe at Wantagh Mazda, even though they didn't make a penny on the sale. The dealer he connected me with was in a very small town out-of-state, and I never would have found them on my own. I can't thank him enough for this outstanding customer service, and I look forward to having my car serviced in the future at Wantagh Mazda!

I wanted to replace my 2015 Madza3 with the current model. I knew precisely what I wanted after research and a test drive. I reached out to a few dealerships in person and online. Wantagh Mazda (Josh) replied almost immediately with quotes. No fuss, no drama. No pushing of "tire insurance" or other nonsense fees and charges. But I especially liked that they were respectful of my time as I was of theirs. The entire transaction was done online and phone in a day and a half. Of course, the delivery was in person and was also another quality customer service transaction with Fred. Included proper C-19 guidelines: masks, wipe-downs etc. Car is great so far. (And so pretty!) I need more time to put it through its paces, but if its like my old Mazda it will be fine. The car buying experience is usually boring and infuriating. My experience with Wantagh Mazda is that doesn't have to be the case.
