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.

thanks duayned, I agree in generall.
I've test droven both twice. From handling perspective, CX-9 is better than the MDX regular version. But the MDX sport version feels a bit better than CX-9. We are talking about 8K price difference between CX-9 GT and MDX sport.
I am leaning towards CX-9, because for the money, MDX's interior is not really much better than CX-9. Acura should learn from Audi or Lexus on interior. I wouldn't hesitate to buy MDX if they have the Lexus RX350 interior. Another car I am considering is Audi Q-7, test drove it, really loved the handling and interior, significantly better than MDX, CX-9 on both fronts. Of course, price is also much higher. However, the number of qualitiy issue complaints on Q-7 really scared me off. So guess I am going to save some money and buy Mazda again.
Didn't know CX-9 uses regular gas. That's helpful info.

I think CX-9 is terrific value for the price.
Both me and my wife drive Mazda now, one 2001 sedan we bought in 2003 used, one 2003 sedan bought new, we only had one worn axis replacement over the last 6 years.
But CX-9 is not 8 passenger, it's 7. Their third row space is the best among all mid-sized crossovers.

I forgot to mention I own a Mazda now. So that price might have factored in the 1k owner rebate. However, I would believe there is still some negotiation space, because I got that quote just by calling them.
There seemed to be an I-Pod connection problem for CX-9 with nav system. see: http://forums.mazdaworld.org/index.php?showtopic=19909
I am planning to wait for the 10 model to come out. Heard it's going to improve the i-pod connection, leather quality etc.
Anybody has any idea when the 2010 model will be available?
#1729 of 3688 How much lower can it go?
May 15, 2009 (7:25 am)
Given the current incentives, I'm trying to get a feel as to whether this is a good deal and if not, how much lower should I be able to go?
2009 CX-9 Grand Touring AWD
Effective invoice price: $34,433
Dealer offer: $33500+TTL
