Hi GT8 --
So you're getting north of $7,500 of the MSRP (although I prefer to deal in relation to the invoice myself).?
That sounds like a decent deal, especially if you're satisfied with it.
Hopefully, you shopped at least one other place to get a comparison price?
Also, be sure to check online sellers, like CarsDirect.com.
For instance, one dealer here on Long Island, NY recently offered me a "super deal" (in her words) on a 2009 AWD Sport for $27,000.
Not bad, esp. if you want all-wheel-drive, which I did not.
So I shopped another dealer, who offered me a FWD Sport with pre-installed heated/power seats and a roof rack for $25,700. OTD about $28,000.
I also checked the CarsDirect.com price, which is $25,847, no options.
The invoice is $29,200 (w/o options).
My point is that now I have a good feeling about what kind of deal I'm getting. It may not be the absolute lowest I could ever find, but I know it's not a ripoff by any means. The dealership is close by and has come well-recommended by my own mechanic, for one.
So that's how I made my decision.
Hope this helps!

Hey, thanks for that BNP --
did you get that off the official MazdaUSA site?
I was hoping the incentives did not go down from April, since I have not closed my deal yet.
And lo and behold -- unless my eyes (and memory) deceive me (both of which happen at my age) it looks like the 2009 CX-9 Dealer Engagement Cash went UP by $500.
Wasn't it $3,500 last month, and is now $4,000?

Good move, my man. At the very least, they owe you a copy of that paperwork and a much clearer explanation of what went down.
Keep at 'em.
Glad to help. Let me know the final result!

Good info. Thanks.
I'm planning to lease a CX-9. If then, how much incentive I can expect totally?
$4K can be combined with $1,550 lease support??
#1699 of 3688 Looking to get cx-9 GT
May 06, 2009 (9:49 am)
1st time poster here. I appreciate all the advice I'm reading. My wife first introduced me to the cx-9 a couple weeks ago and it seems like a good vehicle for our growing family. I'm starting to get price quotes from dealers in my area (Twin Cities). My goal is to get quotes now and then walk in with a check at the end of the month and see who wants to really deal.
I'm trying to understand how to negotiate for the best price. I'm looking at a stock 2009 GT with moon roof and navi options. I've been quoted anywhere from $36,400 out-the-door ($6.5k off MSRP) to $41,000 out-the-door. It seems like some people on this forum are getting better deals.
My understanding is that invoice for this package is around $36,901 (base: $32,567/ moon: $1686/ assistance: $1978). The MSRP is $40,135. Dealers are getting $4k back from Mazda this month.
So is my thinking correct that if a dealer wants to sell this package it should be selling for around $33k+ttl? Or should I be looking for more savings?
I appreciate any advice!

One important question to ask on your quotes is, Does that include the Mazda incentives? If no, then it would be fair to reduce that quote by the Mazda incentive.
We agreed on a price and went into the financing office thinking that I had the option of $1000 cash back or low interest. The manager said we could not do either because we got a "Dealer Rate" which included the $1000.
So, I wasn't getting the great deal I thought. But they gave me a good trade in value so we went through with the deal.
I am not sure of what the incentives are right now but, to me $6.5 off MSRP seems like a good deal.
Tell the dealers you are comparing prices and ask them to beat the others price. When you do go, BE PREPARED TO WALK AWAY if they don't hold to their deal.
#1701 of 3688 Where's the "wiggle room" when leasing in NJ
May 08, 2009 (1:04 pm)
I'm new to leasaing, but I do know there are things that one can negotiate and there are things that the dealer adds in that pads their profit. Could you guys help me to learn more about these issues? For example, dealer offering 36 month lease on an '09 cx-9 sport for $329/mo, 10K miles/yr, with $3078 down due at signing. This includes everything but licensing costs, registration fees, and taxes. So, if I go to lease a Sport in the May-June time frame, what residual, MF, and other fees would I be looking at here in NJ?

Apologies upfront, as I can't help you, having never leased a car.
But I did just want to ask, why are you leasing in the first place? With the low prices now on Mazdas, esp. the 2008 leftovers they are still trying to clear out, seems like a better time to buy than lease, which has never made much economic sense to me.
And only a 10K annual mileage allotment? I guess you don't plan on driving much!
(But I have an open mind.)
