#1716 of 3688 Current incentives for May 2009
May 11, 2009 (11:06 am)
Anyone know what the current incentives for May on the 2009 CX-9? I only see:
2009 Mazda CX-9
0.0% APR for up to 36 MONTHS PLUS $1,500 Customer Cash OR
2.9% APR for up to 60 MONTHS PLUS $1,500 Customer Cash OR
4.9% APR for up to 72 MONTHS PLUS $1,500 Customer Cash
Any manufacturer to dealer cash that is not being made public? Also, the 2008 CX-9 incentives are:
$5,250 Customer Cash OR
0.0% APR for up to 60 MONTHS PLUS $1,000 Customer Cash OR
1.9% APR for up to 72 MONTHS PLUS $1,000 Customer Cash
Are these accurate? Thanks in advance.

I am considering a 2009 CX-9 GT with Nav and Moonroof/Bose. I live in Houston. Got a dealer quote of $32,459 as the sale price with drive out $34,740. The MSRP is $39,460. This quote is only good if I pay cash. Houston seems to be a big seller's market where buyers have difficulties obtaining good deals as others in this forum. Please let me know if there is still room for negotiation. Thanks.

Hi Jason --
The short answer is yes, he most certainly IS paying more than he had to.
But yes, you also did the right thing by not trying to take over the situation (even though they did ask you to be there as wise counsel -- and promptly ignored your advice.)
Now, I have no numbers for you (I have never leased a car). Someone on this board likely will fill in the blanks.
But the reason for my quick opinion is based on what you obviously already know:
The moment he and his wife indicated how much they liked the vehicle, plus gave any hint at all how much monthly payment they wanted -- they were fished hooked on the salesman's line.
All he had to do was reel them in -- and he surely did.
Now, the deal may not even be horrible or a ripoff (let's hope) -- it could be decent! But no way it's the best they could have gotten had they just politely said, "Thanks, we'll think about it," and left to research it and get quotes from at least 2 other dealers!
I feel your pain. I was with my wife (because I'm the "negotiator" of the family) when she did pretty much the exact same thing buying her last car a few years ago. And I have a daughter who may well do the same some day, with me looking haplessly on. lol
It bothered me for while, too. But you know what? I've learned to live happily with the same "secret" the car dealers use: Buyers never have to get the best deal, or even a really good one. You only have to get them to think they did.

There's always more room for negotiation.
For one thing, make sure you ask at least two other area dealers if they can beat that offer. And by beat, let them know you mean substantially, as it's not worth your time to disengage with a dealer you like (even if you don't like him/her) for a measly $100.
For another thing -- why limit yourself to Houston?
Email or call 4 or 5 fleet managers, or sales managers (not regular salesmen) in other nearby cities and even across the border in Louisiana.
I can't guarantee you'll get a bid that makes a two-hour drive worthwhile (although you might even get one hungry enough who will deliver the car to you!) -- but
A. - you never know till you try. and B. - if you don't, then at least you'll feel better about the deal you've already got almost in hand.

Thanks Duayned for your reply. I guess I needed to know that at least my thoughts were right, even though I didn't force them on my son. I will never tell him about this, but it will take me a while to gt over it. My feelings are the money is always better in my pocket than it is in the dealers. BTW, after the deal was made, the dealer's negotiator, who happened to be a wisened sales manager, did everything he could to tell me that my son made a good deal...he knew that I knew we could have done better and that I didn't push my son to do so.
I still would like to see the figures....someone?

I am so confused on what I am doing trying to buy a CX9.
First, I was looking at leftover 2008's - because Mazda's incentives are so good, but there doesn't seem to be many in the NJ/PA/DE area - only 2. And, even then, I'm not sure what is a fair or reasonable price to use as my bottom line.
Would I do better buying an '09? I was looking at Mazda's financing options and it's as low as 0 or 1.9%, which seems great, but the offer of only $1500 cash back seems low ... how much negotiating room could I have with them??
I am very new to this process and need any help anyone can provide me with. Thanks so much!!

Thanks duayned. I have already contacted local dealers within 30 miles radius. I found out that the prices I got were pretty decent and most local dealers so far had a hard time giving me a much lower price. The best I have got is either about $300 lower or the same price but with life-time oil change. Well, that dealer was 20 miles away. So it does not really matter much.

Sounds like you're on the case, my man.
Hey, it's all you can do.
So just pick the best combination of price/service; don't let them talk you into a bunch of extras you don't want.
Then rest easy and enjoy your new ride.

That was from Tyson's Corner Mazda. The price is for all cash. For finance, it was about $2700 higher.
