I was dealing with Browning Mazda in Cerritos not the Browning in Tustin, that's why I got the different treatment. To make it short don't go to Browning Mazda In "Cerritos", they will not honored your overstock certificate.
I went to Riverside Mazda in the Riverside Metro Automall. Great experience and got a Liquid Silver 2010 Sports Auto with popular package for $16,084 +TTL = total paid $17861.91. No game in this dealer showed the certificate, the sales guy talk to the manager and came up with the contract at the price specified. Spent 1.5 hours max at the dealer. This is the future of car buying, I was dreading to buy a new car before but after this I will pick a Mazdaspeed 3 next year for myself because I enjoyed the experience so much.

Seems like no one else has made a purchase lately?? I'm in the SoCal region and am looking to get one in a few days and was wondering if anyone have any pointers in getting a good price for the sports model. I am hoping I can get the pricing romodome and a few others received. Thanks in advance for the help!

Did you buy a used one? How many miles for that car? Auto or Manual? Thanks.

Sorry for the lack of detail. I'm new to this "being excited about a new car" thing as all of my past car purchases were cars that were 7+ yrs old =)
We bought our Mazda 5 Sport at Mastria Subaru in Raynham, Ma.
We bought it used and it had 44,645 miles on it the day we picked it up. It's an automatic. It was previously used as a rental car, hence the high mileage and low price for the year of the car.
I had test driven several cars before I settled on the Mazda5. The fold down 3rd row seating was very attractive to me. The other attractive feature was the MPG. $41 to fill it up compared to the $60 it took to fill my old Ford Windstar.
Love it so far!

I, too, filled out a USAA price certificate. Same problem, they only want to talk on the phone (I have a feeling we're talking about the same manager) and provide no commitment. She said she would honor the price when the car came in that I was quoted (note that USAA quotes are good for the current inventory only). I asked for an e-mail to spell out everything so I could understand. She refused and said she could provide info when i decided to come in so I'd be ready. If you will honor the price, why can't you write it down? Tricky....I'm about ready to head to Riverside.

My wife & I traded in a 2001 Honda Odyssey EX (at 131k w/ onset of transmission troubles) for a new 2012 Mazda5 Grand Touring. MSRP $24,870, negotiated price of $23,199 (so 1670 off of MSRP) and we got 900 better on our trade in than any other dealership was willing to offer. Of course they gave us 4k for the trade in and said they'd have to auction it, then two days later the old van is on their lot with a "SALE" price of 6995. Gotta love dealers!
So far, the wife loves the 5 and the Bluetooth phone & wireless music streaming is very cool!

tempnem, you could also try the John Hines Mazda (the one in Irvine or SanDiego). The problem with Riverside Mazda for me personally eventhough I ended buying from them was inventory. They have a very limited number of car in my opinion...Good Luck
