I bought from Open Road Mazda of Morristown, NJ (historic location of Washington's HQ during the American Revolution). I did a fair amount of research here, I sent out requests for quotes from a couple of dealers including Open Road, and went in well armed with info. I communicated with Wayne Mazda, which has a huge inventory, but a pretty poor reputation. So I did not pursue the purchase with them, but they gave me a frame of reference (as did Manhattan Mazda). In general, people here were getting $7k off msrp easy back in October on the '08s, so that was my target on the '09, but I was willing to take a bit less off if I had to.
I probably could have done even better if I threatened to walk out (on both the purchase price and financing), but I was ok with the deal and just wanted to get it done. I simply did not have time between work and family to spend the next few weeks or months on this process. And I hated my old car, and just wanted that brand new CX-7 that was staring me in the face... As I guess is usually the case, the dealer and I got to a point on the price of the car, value of the trade, and financing where we both felt we got a fair enough deal.
You're getting towards the end of the month, so the next week or so is a good time to give it a shot. Good luck.

Thank you for the detailed info jeff. Based on the MSRP estiamte from Edmunds, i assume your price at the end came out to about $23.5K to $24K right? I might give it a shot, my sister is looking to get one of those, but she is considering leasing so i have to crunch my numbers and see what payment can we come up with based on the price that you got.
Again, thanks a lot for yuor help...
#686 of 813 May incentives/rebates

Hi everyone, my wife and I are looking at buying a CX-7, and last month, we found that there was $3750 in dealer cash on '09s and $4500 in customer cash on '08s. Does anyone know what the incentives are in the new month? I think there is still $4500 in customer cash available on the '08s but since dealer cash seems like it's usually hidden I can't determine whether it's changed or not since last month. It does seem possible that the incentives have changed as there are some new things ($1000 loyalty cash on '09 CX-9s) on Mazda's special offers page.
Are there any other fiscal incentives/rebates on the CX-7s that anyone is aware of? Thanks!

I got 21k otd on CX-7 Sport in VA. Is tha good enough or there are better offers around? How much would be a GT? Thanks in advance for experiences.

Not enough info. Year? Options? OTD may vary, if you are including TTL. Base '09 sports are going for 18.5, which is what I paid for a base '08 back in September.I also told salesguy to cut doc prep in half to $125, which he did.

18.5? I'm looking at a base '09 CX-7 right now with only power seat option. Sticker price is an even 25k. So a fair offer for the dealer would be 18.5? Wow, 4500 below invoice? I'd say that I'd be pretty happy with that. Are they getting incentives from Mazda to get that low? Thanks.

Pretty sure I purchased mine around the same time as des5, as I recall his username. Bought ours courtesy of Hurricane Ike in Sept 08. At the time, our dealer was offfering a flat $7K off MSRP on all CX-7's in-stock. No haggling, no surprises. Was in-and-out in 40 minutes...literally. I bought a base Sport, which had a sticker of $24.3. Paid $17.3.
At the time, I recall Mazda did have an incentive going. In addition, read here that during that time of year, dealers often offer to "buy" vehicles from the mfr (invoice less all incentives) so they can remove the vehicles from their floorplan. This allows the dealers to pass-on really good deals to customers.
Hopefully I didn't mis-state any of the above regarding the floorplan stuff. It's been nearly a year since I researched all this. Good luck with your purchase.

I offered 19.1K for a 26K one. The guy emailed me back right away and said that price is "very very realistic".

I'm in So Cal and one of the local Mazda dealers has been running and ad for the last week "Every new 2009 Mazda CX-7 in stock, All trim levels with MSRP $25,000 to $32,055 $8,000 off MSRP"
