Mazda MAZDA5, Van
#1126 of 1273 Looking to purchase leftover '09
Nov 16, 2009 (7:16 am)
Test drove the Mazda5 this weekend and loved it. I understand the '10 models have stability/traction however I am a firm believer that a well trained and attentive driver doesn't need it. Local dealership gave me a price on a 2009 Sport with manual transmission of $15,925 plus tax (All other fees included) and mentioned the incentive of $1750 as well as a "dealer cash" amount that he wouldn't divulge. He also told me that the 2.9% for 60 month financing could not be combined with the $1750 incentive. Curious to know if this is the truth since the Mazda website doesn't mention anything about the special financing not being stackable with a rebate and also wondering if anyone knows what the "dealer cash" amount is since I cannot find anything about it on the web anywhere! For that matter, nowhere can I even still find anything about the $1750 incentive still being alive but it must be if they are offering it.
Thanks for the help.

I just looked at a new 2010 Mazda5 GT. Stickered for $23,755. I talked them down to $20,700. We are thinking about it. Not sure about fees and tax. I'm trying to decide if I should get this or something bigger. I wish it had a hair more space behind the 3rd row and a bit more horse power. I'm looking at a used Honda Pilot.

You guys were right! I've got scammed. The finance manager told me the total care covers damaged wheels. Like when you hit a pothole. And with aluminum wheels, that's like 400 a piece.
Well guess what! I hit a curb a scratched the wheel. I thought, well that sucks, but I'm covered. Turns out you have to have a flat tire and if the wheel gets damaged as a result of that, then it's covered. There is actualy language specific against hitting curbs and potholes.
Other things not covered are squeaks, squeals and rattles. Exactly what this car is prone to.
#1129 of 1273 Aggregate Pricing
Nov 25, 2009 (8:55 pm)
Ladies and Gentlemen;
I am buying a Mazda GT 2009 on the East Coast. I plan to email all my local sales managers or fleet managers and deal with whomever gives me the best price.
I won't even go into the dealership until I have the best pricing agreed via email.
I will then go to the second place bid and see if they will beat the first.
I am doing the same thing with a Mini Cooper purchase - and have recruited 4 other mini buyers to do this with me. We are dangling the carrot of 4 sales in one fell swoop to the ONE dealer that gives us the best price.
I would love to attempt the same thing with anyone looking to buy a Mazda.
I am in NY - but will go to NY, NJ, Conn, or Pennsylvania for the best deal.
We would agree on the car price first - pick the dealer - and then each person is on their own to deal with trade-ins, financing, lease, or whatever.
If you are interested - email me techdirektoryahoo.com - I want to send this email out to the dealers either tomorrow or Friday.
Black Friday is usually horrible for Car Dealers from what I hear and I think we will get lots of focus.

#1131 of 1273 Mazda5 Sport Purchase in CT
Nov 30, 2009 (9:26 am)
I live in CT and just bought (cash purchase) a 2010 Mazda5 Sport automatic with these options: Popular Equipment Package (liftgate spoiler, side sill extensions, 6-CD in dash player), door edge guards, rear bumber guard, all weather mats, and cargo net.
MSRP = $20,920; dealer invoice = $19,574, less $750 dealer cash discount, equals $18,824. I paid $18,516 for the car ($308 beneath discount-adjusted invoice.) The dealer made up for that through a pretty bloated "dealer conveyance fee" of $489. My final out-the-door cost was $20,300 = $18,516+$489 (doc fee)+$1,140 (CT 6% sales tax)+$155 (registration/title).
There aren't many Mazda5 Sport vehicles around in copper red (the only color we were interested in), and fewer still that have the Popular Equipment Package we wanted. The dealer I bought from had this exact car on his lot (one mile on the odometer) and is only a 1 hour drive away from us. He initially quoted me a figure that was about $700 above what we eventually settled on. I had called close to 75 other dealerships across the northeast to get a good feel for the range of pricing that was being offered, and it helped a lot in my negotiating to have received a particularly low quote from a NJ dealer. After some back and forth, my CT dealer was willing to lower his price enough to get within a few hundred dollars of the NJ quote I had received. Before finalizing the deal, I followed up again with other area dealerships to see if they could beat that OTD cost, but none of them could get close to it, in part because they would have to pay to have the car transported to their lot from another dealer.

#1134 of 1273 Considering a 2010 Sport Auto
Jan 01, 2010 (5:34 pm)
Considering a 2010 Mazda5 Sport with auto...No other options.
Was quoted $16,999 plus tax and tag transfer. Is this a good deal or should I hold out for lower?
Thanks in advance.
#1135 of 1273 2010 Mazda 5 Sport manual transmission
Mar 12, 2010 (8:39 am)
Anyone shopping for this vehicle lately?
Trying to negotiate with a dealer. Offering car for $16825 plus taxes, fees and registration in CT. I see a fe wmonths ago people had better luck getting a car for about $1k less. Now they have 36 months 0% APR financing, so that may play a role.
Please share if anyone got a lower price. The car has no other options on.
