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 had a wonderful experience purchasing my brand new Mazda 3! I had been thinking of purchasing a new car and, on the recommendation from a friend, went to Wantagh Mazda on President's day basically to 'shop' and not planning on making purchase that day.....but I did. I was treated with kindness and smiles from the moment I walked in the door. Victor, also recommend by the same friend, was wonderful to work with....very friendly and extremely patient with my endless questions.. Even though it was a busy sales day, he never made me feel rushed nor pressured in any way. I was very nervous going in as I was making this purchasing decision on my own. Victor made me feel comfortable every step of the way. During the test drive he pointed out and explained all the safety features of the car which are amazing. By the time we got done with the test drive I was SOLD on this car. I discussed with Victor what extras I wanted, Phil searched and found exactly what I was looking for and had it delivered to the dealership within a couple of days. The purchasing process was finished today when I picked up my new car. Again, Victor took his time explaining how to use all the features and made sure I understood everything. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. I highly recommend Wantagh Mazda and Victor if you're looking for a new car. Thank you, from this proud owner of a brand new, beautiful red Mazda 3!

I picked up a CX-5 on February 19th and it is one of the best cars I have ever had. It is an upscale vehicle at a very reasonable price. I definitely recommend this dealership.

We had the remote start installed in our 2018 Mazda but unfortunately it did not work right. Sometimes it would start and other times it didn't. We called the service department and spoke with Craig. He immediately arranged for us to come in and have the remote start replaced. We did this several times but unfortunately , and we don't know why, our remote start never worked properly. I told Craig that I would just like my money back and have the system removed, He immediately said " we just want to make you happy and if that's what you want we will do that". Within a week, He scheduled an appointment, we had the remote start removed and we had check in the amount that we were charged to install it. It was an absolute pleasure working with Craig and his crew.....they kept to their word and could have not been more professional! An absolute pleasure to do business with!
