#281 of 536 2005 MPV Incentives Expire 2/28/05
Feb 06, 2005 (8:32 pm)
Instead of 0% financing, there is a $3,000 dealer incentive for MPVs until 2/28/05. Edmunds shows this, but other sites and even some Mazda salespeople aren't very aware.
Couple that with a $1,000 incentive to finance with Mazda (can always refinance with another lender).
Then work with a dealer that will sell at or close to invoice, and that takes off another $1,900 (goal) for even a base LX. For a more upscale MPV there is even more to work with. One around here sells about $200 above invoice and will even find a car on a non-competitor's lot to get the right car & color.
Hard to say if these incentives will continue past Feb., but one salesperson said the selling season generally picks up in March. Any past history with incentives like these continuing?

I am purely speculating but I feel the MPV incentives may be pulled back once the Mazda5 arrives....
With the big MPV incentives it can be had for the same price range of the new MZ5...I don't know if thats good or not.
#283 of 536 ISO pricing help w/ 2004/2005 LX models
Feb 09, 2005 (12:31 am)
For those of you in the know, what would be good prices for the following models (before any rebates are deducted):
1. 2004 LX w/ LX Plus, side airbags & TC, DVD,
roof rack, and wheel locks (MSRP: 26,770.00)
2. 2004 LX w/ side airbags & TC (MSRP: 23,885.00)

4. 2005 LX w/ LX Plus, side airbags & TC,
bumper, spoiler (MSRP: 25,645.00)
Also, is anyone aware of a pet cargo net for the back area with the 3rd row folded down (to keep doggie from getting up into the 2nd row area)?

You'd think that Mazda wouldn't want to kill the sales they are getting on the MPV by stopping the incentives. If it was a new revised MPV, then sure. But, seeing as they do next to no advertising for the MPV, why kill the thing that makes 'em attractive for shoppers?
Is there much of a waiting list for the MZ5 already?

Was your $18,100.00 price after rebates or before?

Was your price of $20,600 before rebates, or were those not available in October?
#287 of 536 I think the logic goes like this:

If you can get an MSRP $25k MPV for $19k after rebates and discounts, and the Mazda5 has a sticker of $19k, folks are going to expect bigger price breaks on the 5. It's a nice vehicle, but why wouldn't you take the bigger van with the V6 for roughly the same price? Now, if transaction prices for the MPV move towards $21k or so - and as expensive as Honda and Toyota have gotten I think there's room in that range - it's a lot easier to move 5s without dropping $3k on the hood. I think Rich is probably right on here.

When the new MPV comes out there will be a more clear distinction between the 5 and the MPV.Both in looks,size and price.

The more I think about it the less I'm concerned about the two vehicles and incentives....
we have a similar situation now...the MZ3 is selling without any incentives but the MZ6 has some incentives which brings it right into MZ3 price range. we have seen plenty of folks come in to buy the MZ3 and leave with a MZ6 based on their perception that the MZ6 is a better deal based on the discounts.
I think the MZ5 will bring in folks who are product curious...I'm sure a certain percentage will see the big discounts on the MPV and feel bigger for the same price is better. The MZ5 may not be for everyone but getting new faces into the showroom will result in sales...mazda's are easy to like.

You can say that again. I got a flier in the mail good for $500 off any new Mazda - from Gerber, as strange as that seems. I keep trying to convince the CFO that between the college grad rebate, the Gerber certificate, and all the incentives that I really ought to let that poor lonely leftover '04 Mazdaspeed Miata follow me home. So far she isn't biting, but if I get a promotion...
Rich, are there still any incentives on the '04s or has it gone to dealer cash?
