2003 Mazda 6 question

So I found this pretty good looking Mazda 6 at a local dealership. It's a V6 3.0 Liter. I took it for a test drive, and it seems to run beautifully. I've been researching this car for a few days now, and I figure this would be the best place to ask. It has 133k miles on it, and there is some light body damage, just scratches on front and rear bumpers, a little dent on the rear bumper as if it backed into something. The dealer has the sticker price at $7,500. After talking to him, he said I could probably get a deal on it if I choose to purchase it before they repair the body damage. I'm not sure how much of a deal, but I'm guessing I could get it down to around 6,000. So what do you guys think?

tl;dr 2003 Mazda 6, V6 3.0 liter, 133k miles, light body damage. Probably could get it for around 6,000. Opinions? I'm newer to Mazda's so I'm unsure. Thanks

I got my 03 6i 4cyl manual for 5.3k, with 108k miles on it. It was in relatively good condition as well. I feel like you should be able to talk the dealer into selling it to you for 6,000 after they fix up the body lol thats just my opinion

It really depends on where you are in the country.

People are selling 03 M6s with the v6 anywhere from 5k to 8k in the Austin and San Antonio area.

A guy down the street from me got 8k for his. Stock, GT, great condition with Bose and just over 100k.

i would try to negotiate price. I got my 06 V6 with 104k for $7200. It had minor scratches here and there, and some dents from what i think might have been acorns or hail. the car ran fine and i had a mechanic look at it. tried to rip me off saying it leaked oil but when I took it somewhere else they said there was no leak. But most definitley have a mechanic look at it if there is body damage to make sure the frame is all good.

I got my '04 6s (loaded) with 95k for a little under 7k in the spring. It had some cosmetic things (a chip in my back bumper, a scuff on the front and a small crease on the front fender).
