Mazda MAZDA5, Van
#803 of 1273 Took the plunge...
Mar 04, 2009 (7:36 am)
Over the weekend, I bought a 2009 Mazda5, Touring trim with the following options: all weather mats, autodim mirror+compass, step plate, cargo net.
Hereís the breakdown:
Sticker price: $21,958
Invoice Price: $20,556
Sale Price: $20,633
Mazda Rebate: -$1000
Tax (6% sales tax)/title/license: $1551
Final OTD cost: $21,184
0% financing for 36 months, so thatís the bottom line. I think I did OK, but maybe could have haggled more. I'm admittedly not the best at negotiating tricks, but did go a couple rounds with the salesman.
Very happy with the car so far!

Sounds god. Just curious...any trade-in involved?
Mar 05, 2009 (7:12 am)
Thanks. No trade involved with this one. The dealership had quite a few Mazda5's on the lot, but not many Touring trims. I don't know if they just make fewer, or if this particular dealership went through them faster (or didn't have many in the first place). Anyone know?
#806 of 1273 Bought a new '09 Mazda5 about a week ago
Mar 05, 2009 (7:19 am)
'09 Mazda5 Sport with manual transmission. All of the following prices include destination:
With no negotiation I got a price of $16,500 after the $1,000 rebate. After tax, title, license, and doc fee, the price came out to a little under $18,000 which is financed over three years at 0% interest, no money down, and three months of no payments.
MSRP = $18,665
Invoice = $17,535
"Fair Market Value" = $17,653
As an alternative, I could have paid $15,997 for the new vehicle and after the $1,000 rebate (it is currently advertised at this price in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper, any of the three Bommarito Mazdas ) but would not have had 0% financing - based on market rates I would have been at about 4%.
I did not trade in a vehicle.
#807 of 1273 2008 Grand Touring Price
Mar 06, 2009 (10:23 am)
I'm looking at a 2008 new Grand Touring with a sticker of 23,185. The internet offer came back at $21,185 plus the financing plus $1000 incentive towards down payment.
What's a good price for this car? I'm thinking of offering about 18,000 for the car being that it's last year's model and given the state of the economy.

#809 of 1273 Mazda5 AT Sport - Michigan
Mar 08, 2009 (6:03 am)
Finally bought a car! Had February rebates in place.
$18,400 out the door:
$16,800 for the AT sport (already had compass mirror & rear bumper guard)
$250 for other accessories (interior cargo cover, door guards, all-weather floor mats)
$1350 tax/title/fees (6% tax in Michigan)
I basically said I was willing to pay the $16,800 for the base car. No one was willing to give me the accessories in that price, so I paid separately for them. I think this was about as good a price as I could get as I had 3 dealers who all were willing to make this deal but no one was willing to throw in the few hundred dollars of accessories on top.
I have to say, this was my first new-car buying experience and in general was very, very unpleasant. 3 different dealers lied to me about simple things (like when the rebates expired). Did most of my negotiation on line; in the end, I called up this local dealer (who hadn't responded to all my emails), said what I would pay, and we essentially closed the deal by phone and then I went in and signed all the paperwork. I liked it this way b/c there were no surprises. I think it was a good deal for him AND for me...it's just that in buying a new car, you don't know exactly how much of a good deal it was b/c I never could completely figure out all of the incentives in place.
I'll also mention that Mazda5 sales are up in Feb 11% compared with 1 year ago (the only Mazda vehicle with growing sales) which is probably why they pulled most of their rebates for March. Good luck to everyone trying to buy--I've appreciated people sharing info on-line which is why I've posted this.
#810 of 1273 Mazda5 Sport base
Mar 12, 2009 (10:01 am)
This is in California bay area.
MSRP 19,775 (base model) - Destination fee included
Invoice: 18,569 - Destination fee included
$1500 incentive for all cash customer
$1000 incentive for 0% customer
There are already a couple dealers offering $16,9XX for pricing. (basically = Invoice 18,569- Incentive 1,500 )
What is the ideal price for OTD out door price? 8.25% tax in CA
What is the ideal BIP price - Buyer's invoice price?
I am thinking
16,000 + 0% + tax + fee = 17,600
15,500 + 0% + tax + fee = 17,000

bascically, 18K=16,36x + 8.25 tax + fee.
1636x = invoice price of base model price 17,899 - 1500
regional adjustment and destination fee not included.
if you can make it 16000 or lower, it will be better.

Mar 12, 2009 (3:35 pm)
16,000 + 0% + tax + fee = 17,600
15,500 + 0% + tax + fee = 17,000"
can you pls let me know if you can get 09 M5 sport AT OTD for $17600 or $17000. I recently made an offer for paying cash $17600 OTD but was rejected...
