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!

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"

Sales of CX-7s are down some 60+% from last year. It didn't take long for Mazda to offer dealers at least 3750 engagement money on the '09s with most '08s finally gone. There can also be salesmen who will find a way to get you loyalty money even if you don't own a Mazda. You have to knock some competitive heads together, but add up 3750 + 1500 + 1000 = 6250 off MSRP and the sale is still AT INVOICE! The dealer is still pulling 475 holdback, but he 's got make something.
Regarding the So Cal deal, occasionally in some regions the engagement money is bumped up, perhaps because of local stock imbalance. When I bought the bounty was another $800 near the end of the month. Mind you, only one dealer of the six I worked with mentioned it. SIx months ago, the hottest deals were in Texas.
As I've said before, Mazdas start out as a poor deal at sticker, but get discounted down to a very good deal in the end.
