While a brand new car can be a costly investment, financing can help you control monthly expenses while enjoying the best that the latest Mazda lineup has to offer. Read on for a few tips about building a financing plan that fits your needs with Brown’s Chantilly Mazda:
Check Your Credit
Even if you already have a general idea of what your credit score and finances look like, it’s important to gather as many accurate numbers as possible to accurately determine what kind of APR you’ll qualify for and what kind of monthly payments you can handle. Be sure to check your credit score from all three bureaus, because while uncommon, the FTC reports that one in 20 consumers have credit report errors.
Find Your Mazda
It’s important to pick a car that you want to drive, but you can keep costs under control by picking features in order of importance. For instance, a navigation system or a more efficient engine may be more useful than a sunroof. Don’t be afraid to deck out your vehicle with essentials, but keep in mind that the longer you stretch out financing, the more you’ll ultimately pay in interest.
Build Your Plan
After you know how much money is in the bank and how much your new Mazda will cost, then it’s time to head to the dealership and begin the negotiations. You’re free to negotiate a lower interest rate (APR) or to search for dealer incentives or factory rebates to save a little more. Research any acronyms or dealership lingo you’re not familiar with to avoid any confusion.

When designing the Mazda SkyActiv engine, the engineers at Mazda fine-tuned each vehicle component to deliver maximum efficiency and power. To complement the energy-saving technology of the SkyActiv engine, Mazda developed i-ELOOP Regenerative Braking Technology. This innovative regenerative braking system converts the kinetic power created by the brakes into electricity that powers the electric system of the vehicle. Each time you step on the brakes, the i-ELOOP transforms the kinetic energy of the brakes into electricity that powers essential electrical functions such as the lights and navigation system. By transferring the creation of electric energy from the engines to the brakes, the i-ELOOP system improves the fuel economy of a vehicle by up to five percent.
To get a closer look at all of the innovative technology behind Mazda’s SkyActiv engine, visit Brown’s Chantilly Mazda. Our inventory features a range of Mazda vehicles with SkyActiv engines, and our sales staff will provide you more information about the benefits of this exciting new engine technology.
