I need to fax, or submit a copy of the Gerber discount to mazda for the 500 dollars rebate, but i no longer have it. Does anyone have the certificate so i can fax or send it. If you can e-mail it to me that would be great. If you can send it, it would be great too. I appreciate any help.

#175 of 1273 Just Bought a Mazda 5 Touring Automatic
Dec 20, 2005 (9:32 am)
I just got my Mazda 5 last night.
Price Paid: $20,200 OTD.
Mazda 5 Touring, Automatic Transmission, Wheel Locks, Cargo Liner, Bumper Step Plate & Free Lifetime Oil Change.
This price included my Zoom Zoom Certificate.
$18796.75 Car w/options (includes $560 Destination Charge)
$1903 in tax/license/reg etc.
minus $500 Zoom Zoom Certificate
Total OTD $20,200
Almost $450 under invoice.
I used the fax/email method. Dealers were all over the map from $500 over invoice down to my purchase price. Dealer offered no grief, beat my financing which will save me another $500 over the life of the loan.

Great deal on 5. I will finalize deal end of this week, I have dealer at invoice, plus zoom zoom coupon. Can you clarify the cargo liner details? How big is this, does it just cover the small storage area in back or does it also cover the back seats when folded down. I'm just finalizing details, not sure if i want the cargo liner. Nice job on oil changes

I meant to say, almost $450 below invoice BEFORE adding the $500 zoom zoom certificate.
As for the Cargo Liner. It's in the accessory catalog obtainable at the dealership. They had to order it so I haven't seen it yet. It looks like it covers the back of the 3rd row seats and the cargo floor. I have a dog so it's a necessity. I do wish I would have ordered front splash guards and I may do that soon.
I would take your offer and email it to as many dealers in your area as possible. See who is willing to budge. It's the end of the year and they just aren't moving many cars, they admitted it to me. In 2.5 hours, I was the only customer in the dealership and I only went in to sign papers.
I thought for sure I would end up buying where I test drove. They ended up having the second worse offer. They think they have you because you might be loyal. But I realized it and I got a MUCH better deal because of it. S-Plan right now should just be a starting point. Put the deal out there to everyone as almost every dealer was willing to go invoice or at least $100 under, several in the $300+ under range. Let invoice be your starting point and I bet you can do better. This probably won't work after the 1st of the year but until then, I would try to work it a bit more.

Even better deal you got, well done. Still negotiating on mine. Started at 1000 over invoice, then 400, then 300, now at invoice, I have been talking to a couple of others and playing this information. I'm definitely not committed to this dealer, so I will keep working on it until end of year. Time is my friend. Lastly, your assuming it covers 3rd row, please send pictures, dimensions or anything else you can find on it. I don't have pets, but like the idea. I have Sub Wagon with one and view it as a requirement. Keep me posted.

#182 of 1273 Mazda 5 sport basic

I bought a sport basic model with auto transmission on 01/02/2006 with $17436 with a $500 off from a so called S-plan. Good deal, excellent car. Love it.

Was that 17426 before TTL? I have the S-plan, too--for most models it gets you well over $1000 off. (For example, on the Mazda6 sport wagon base model, it gets you $1792 off.) How come you only got $500 off with the S-plan for the Mazda5?
