#714 of 813 Additional charges my CX7 is RIDICULOUS!
Jul 31, 2009 (6:01 am)
Thought I got an exceptional deal on a 2009 CX7 GT w/ Nav. and wheel locks in Liquid Platinum Metallic from Wayne Mazda in NJ. They quoted 7,425 off from $33,605 MSRP on 7/29/09 including destination charges, and w/o 0% (Got 5% instead).
Went in to sign the paper, and they wanted to add these mandated charges on top of tax and destinations:
1. New tires
2. Internet access
3. Windows edging (They will not take it out b/c the quote price is too low)
4. Credit check
6. Title & registrations
These charges came out to be $1,221. As far as I can remember, it is used to be Document, title & registrations around 6 to 7 hundred dollars. I guess I will have to nego. on the out of door price instead of just the car price from now!

New tires???? Yes..they are because they came with the new car shipped from Japan. Unless you asked them to replace the tires, they can take a hike.
Internet Access? Is satellite or FM radio now called "Internet". Perhaps they put in a mobile 3G wireless access router into the 12V power outlet to give you wirelesss access in the car. Maybe they are giving you one of these http://3gstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=961
but make sure they provide the 3G PC card or USB dongle and include the lifetime PCS service.
Window etching? Fraud. The car has a security system. who cares if you recover the glass or not. This is your insurance companies issue, not theirs!
Credit Check? They check everyone that walks in the door for a test drive. It's the cost of doing business.
If you have this in writing, I would fax it over to the Attorney General and the CEO of Mazda North America immediately and get their stealership license revoked.

I bet the "new tires" is the disposal fee that's attached to all new tire sales (including the ones on new cars). I think that's around $2.00/tire..
Without an exact accounting of the amount of each fee, it's hard to know how much extra you are being charged, without reason.

For future reference, I think that's a billet chrome grill..
That sounds pretty good... How many leftover 2008 models did your dealer have?

27K sounds about right for the GT with technology package based on my shopping experience. 21k for GT with bose sounds too good to be true even if its an 08. Was it AWD?
I just got a touring AWD with bose for 24k +tax. I overpaid but I just wanted the car in that particular color.

#723 of 813 Pricing Clarification
Aug 10, 2009 (3:04 pm)
I've been trying to locate an 09 AWD GT but have had little luck in the StL area. I found a model out in Ohio with all the options I want. MSRP = $31,130, got a quote for $24,290. Caveat 1 = It's a demo with 5800 miles.
When I asked for clarification on the quote, the salesperson responded that he used dealer cash, not the cash back or finance incentives when generating the price. I'm a little confused as to the difference and whether they can be combined. Anyone mind clarifying this for me? And feel free to comment on the offer.
