Mazda MAZDA5, Van
#579 of 1273 2008 Mazda5 Touring CWP
Apr 17, 2008 (11:24 am)
From: Morrie’s Chippewa Valley Mazda Eau Claire, WI.
Mazda 5 Touring
Crystal White Pearl Mica paint
Auto-Dimming Mirror w/compass
All Weather Mats
Rear Bumper Protector
Front Splash Guards
Bottom Line w/ Destination: $20,405.00 plus $125.00 paper fee, tax, title, license.
Great buying experience, very happy with my decision for a Mazda5, and Morrie’s Chippewa Valley Mazda, all they sell at that dealership are Mazda’s might be a good reason they do such a good job.
#580 of 1273 Red GT from Northern Indiana

From: Kennedy Mazda in Valparaiso, IN (far suburban Chicago)
Mazda5 Grand Touring in Copper Red
Mirror w/Homelink and compass
rear bumper guard
Took the special financing: 1.9/3.9
Price including options: $22,450
Had to wait just less than a month for them to track down the color I wanted. The dealership was easy to work with--especially liked the sales manager. I was very pleased with the price. I almost feel guilty knowing how much our Canadian cousins are paying. However, I do owe several hundred dollars in medical bills at the moment...maybe, I don't feel so bad.

hondax2 (mazdax2 now),
i assume this includes destination charge. and does not include tax/registration. did they put too many additional fees like doc fee, credit check fee.

That is correct--destination charge was included. There were no additional fees beyond what the state and county charges for tax/title/registration.

Does $22,450 include the taxes?

No--Indiana sales tax of 7% was added as were the titling fees charged by the state. At registration, Indiana residents also pay the county excise tax on the vehicle. I took advantage of Mazda's 1.9-3.9% financing incentive, too.

I just bought mine last night and it's my first brand new car ever. Double whammy of excitement, for me. I paid $18,400 that includes destination but taxes & reg. excluded. I got the 4.9% financing and the dealer gave me $1,000 more for my trade than the next closest dealer offered. I did the edmunds.com dealer price quote search and every dealer came back at $18,900 and none would budge from their quotes. Then I e-mailed a dealer I found on autotrader.com that had 11 Mazda5 in stock. They came back at $18,400 and would not budge on their price. Finally I got them to throw in tinted windows for every window except winshield of course and they agreed. Thats a $250+ value according to 2 local shops I called this morning. I hope I did good, please give me your opinions.
