I paid $20600+$399 doc fee+taxes for the 2012 Sport at Courtesy Mazda in Henderson (las vegas area). I did get 60 month 0% financing incentive (good til 10/31/12) in lieu of the factory to dealer dealer $1500 incentive so a cash buyer or someone with their own financing should take that amount off the price.
Only option on car was bumper guard ($50 invoice cost).
Got same quote at the only other dealer in town.
#1247 of 1273 New 2012 Sport Automtatic, $17,400
Nov 03, 2012 (9:20 am)
I just purchased a new Liquid Silver Auto Sport for $17,400 from a dealer in Rochester MN. It stickered at $21,420, so it was a $4020 discount from sticker. It was advertised on their website at that price, so there was no need to dicker. They had several more at $18,300 (which I thought was a pretty good deal in itself), but this was apparently a loss leader at $17,400.
That was a cash price. It is my understanding that taking the 0% 60-month financing would have been in lieu of a rebate (presumably $1500 to the dealer).
All that was added was a $75 doc fee (capped in MN), tax, title and license, which all go to the government.
#1248 of 1273 2012 Mazda5 Grand Touring
Nov 10, 2012 (10:37 pm)
I'm looking to buy a 2012 Mazda5 GT, and I'm using Trucar as the comparison price. It looks like I can get around $22k here in the Pac NW, but I know that there's a factory to dealer incentive of $1k going on right now in addition to the $500 customer rebate offered by Mazda. Am I crazy to think I should be doing better? (The $22k is after the $1,500 "rebates".)
OTOH, inventory seems low...

That is essentially invoice - $1500, which seems like a decent deal. A local dealer to me is willing to do $20,380 + $599 dealer fee on a 2012 GT. Heading down Friday to see if I can get one.

Did you end up getting invoice -$1,500.
I am looking to get a Mazda5 today or tomorrow, and I see the $500 incentive but I don't see $1000, at least on cars dot com. Perhaps it expired over the past week.
I am looking to get a Grand Touring in Chicago.

Yes, that's about what I ended up getting, too, but I had to go as far as SF to get it. PacNW came down to $21.5, but no lower.

First offer (no negotiating) received for a 2012 GT (no options) in Texas was $21.9 for a 2012 Grand Touring, w/ invoice at $23.5 . Not bad at $1600 below invoice, but maybe not stellar considering we're at the end of the year and these dealerships gotta make space for all the 2013s that are coming in.
There does seem to be considerable interest from the dealers to clear these 2012s off their lots right now, and the Mazda incentives -- $1000 mfg-dealer + $500 customer rebate + current 0% financing for 60 months (w/ $500 ?) -- are helping that effort.
Dunno if I should bite; the car's practical and fun to drive, but the cheap hard-plastics interior and crazy grin is still holding me back...

I saw that about the $1000 mfg-dealer + $500 customer rebate + current 0% financing for 60 months (w/ $500 ?) going on right now. Wondering how good the bottom line price can get considering those deals? Still possibly around $1500-2000 below invoice on a GT?
