Does anyone know if they still offer this? I can't find it on their website since the redsign way back when.

yes, many of us don't know about it...I believe they always offer that to buyers- rebates on recent graduates...they never tell us that's why most of us don't know about it...but the catch is you'll have to prove it...I don't think there's a loophole, unless you get a fake graduation certificate...

I think when i bought the car the salesman may have mentioned it. At the time I was a few weeks away from graduation but they gave it to me anyway. I just had to have the school send them a letter stating I completed a degree and what I majored in.

IIRC you have to be within 6 months of graduation, before or after, OR the same from transfering to a 4 year from a junior college.

Graduate Eligibility:
Canadian residents who have graduated between January 1st, 2002 and December 31st, 2006 from an accredited Canadian university or college — a list is attached for reference.

Hello John,

Thanks for contacting Mazda.

Unfortunately, there are no incentives and/or promotions currently at
this time for the MAZDASPEED6. Also, the college graduate program that
was in effect ended and is no longer in effect.

If you would like some assistance in searching for a MAZDASPEED6 our
Friend @ Mazda Team can help. This team can search the entire U.S. to
try and find a vehicle with your specifications and can be reached at
(800) 639-1000 or [email protected].[/b]
