#844 of 1273 Incentives below invoice?
Apr 27, 2009 (6:08 am)
We're really close to buying a new 2009 Mazda5 Grand Touring.
The dealer is talking invoice - $250 (using "his" family discount) plus we'll take the $500 cash and 2.9% financing. So total is invoice - $750 + tax/title/dest.
But I'm suspecting that there is room to move below invoice. The local dealers are claiming there's no more marketing support from Mazda, no volume incentives, etc. I think this is bunk!
Can anyone tell me if they've purchased a NEW 2009 Mazda5 below $750 under invoice?

FYI, I've talked to a few dealers about 2009 Mazda5 GT purchases. They're all offering Invoice - rebate easily: $750 under with the finance or $1500-$2000 under with self-financing.
For example, a no-option M5 GT would be $21,149 with available 0.9%/36 financing.
No one is willing so far to go under invoice.
#846 of 1273 $15.7k for a sport manual?
Apr 27, 2009 (12:18 pm)
With no options. That makes it basically invoice + $50. Seems decent, but I saw someone in Portland above at $15.1. Not sure if that was with the same incentive structure as now: Paying cash, so my number includes $1750 dealer incentive. Is $750 below invoice (before dealer cash) a reasonable expectation?
#847 of 1273 last-minute options to buy?

Factory-installed items are obviously all predetermined for the car you've picked out, but seems like there are a lot of smaller items, bumper protectors, compass mirror, cargo net etc. That you can either buy or (more likely) ask for in bargaining. Curious as to what people think is worth having?
#848 of 1273 sport manual: 15235

Thanks to the Portland poster, I said I had an offer at 15.1, so he came down from 15.7 to 15235 plus a few knickknack options. (Sport manual, no factory options.) That's about $750 below invoice after incentive. Wasn't an arm-twist, I'd guess there's room below $15k, at least with this $1750 dealer incentive going now.
Tax (9.5%!) 1453
doc fee 55
Out the door at 16933.
#849 of 1273 5 sport below invoice Sacramento

I just bought a NEW 2009 Mazda5 Sport auto trans with only the 1PE "popular equipment package" for 17,400 before tax, reg. and fees. The total out the door price was 19,150.00. So at 17,400 this is significantly below the Edmunds invoice of 18,990. I went through the Costco quote system. They said I could get the Sport Auto trans with no options for 17k even. Though this is nowhere near the Portland price I just read about, it's the best price I could find in N. California. I heard that CA folks buying a car in OR have to register it there for 6 months first??? Though I can buy WA or NV cars with CA smog, I would still have to pay CA sales tax when registering with CA DMV and this negates the advantage. Thanks to all the other folks who post here for helping me know what's reasonable.

I bought a Stormy Blue Mazda5 Touring for $18.6k in April. Not including delivery, tax, tags, title, etc.. With that I got roof racks, all weather mats, rear bumper guard, door edge guards, cargo net, cargo cover, and wheel locks. So far I'm very happy with the car/van... with it. I'm concerned about the upholstery and how it will look over time; it's pretty light and has no pattern, only texture. I'm Scotch Guarding this week. Since purchase I have added seat covers for the middle row, the Mazda sun shade (big windshield wouldn't hold my old sunshade), and the Mazda cargo mat.
Only problem item (condensation inside driver side tail lamp assembly) was replaced at delivery.
Dealer experience was great. They seem to want to move cars and are backing away from hard sell tactics. I went to Rosenthal Arlington Mazda in Arlington, VA. Elizabeth was a very knowledgeable and helpful salesperson.

#852 of 1273 2008 Mazda 5 Touring
May 08, 2009 (7:32 pm)
Wre looking to purchase a new car. It's most likley going to be an Elantra Touring or a Mazda 5 Sport or Touring. When checking the website of a nearby dealer I noticed that they still had a 2008 Mazda 5 Touring with a MSRP $21,373. I have not went to check it out yet. Does anyone have any ideas of how much below invoice before the rebates ( $3,000 Customer Cash or 1500 cash plus apr) I should try to get this for?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am almost tempted to start at around 18K- 18.5K .

Wizkid: Just bought a manual sport base no options for 15.2, and it could have gone lower. With the invoice of the AT about $1k more, I think you should be able to go down to 16.1 or 16k even, if you're paying cash and the 1750 dealer incentive is still in place for May.
