I made a small typo regarding MSRP. The actual MSRP was $41,015 not $40,015 as I stated earlier. Price paid was $35,495, so the discount off MSRP was about $5,500 with 0% financing.
Sales tax in California is now 9.75% in the county that I live in. DMV fees have also gone up to $495. The only extra fees were $55 for Doc Fee and $7.50 for Tire recycling.
The 0% APR for 36 months plus $1,500 Customer Cash seems to have been extended through July 31st according to the Mazda website, so I assume that the $4,000 allowance to dealers has also been extended. If that is the case, you should be able to get about $8,000 off MSRP when paying in cash or getting your own financing.

I have requested internet quotes from a few dealers in my area (CT). So far they all are giving price of Invoice minus 4,000 OR rebate/special financing; but not both. This price is using S-Plan with no further negotiating. Has anyone encountered dealers going lower? I think it is an ok deal, but not a great deal.

Just bought an 09 Grand Touring AWD with Moonroof/Bose, GT Assistance and Roof Rack options in MA. I took the $4,000 incentive. MSRP was $40,465. Price paid was $33,921. OTD was $35,936. I wanted to pull the trigger before the MA sales tax jumps from 5% to 6.25% on August 1.

That sounds like a pretty good deal. I got the same car last year at Sentry West in Shrewsbury for about the same price under S-Plan.
Last Friday, I just bought the wife a loaded GT AWD 09 CX-7 using the 4K cash back from Mazda and $1K loyalty from Sentry West too. Was pretty much the dealer invoice cost but didn't have to wait until Duvall's tax raise costs me more.
Welcome to the family.
#1791 of 3688 CX-9 Best price

Been shopping for a 3rd row SUV for a couple of weeks. Read CR, edmunds, KBB, cars.com and have ot shortlisted to the CX-9 or Veracruz. Went to a couple of dealers in MN and the best price i got for a 2009 Sport FWD with the PW6 power package (heated front seats,mirrors and Pwr driver) was $24,500. Plan to install leather in front seats for $800 (dealer quote) or $1195 for front and 2nd row. Does this sound like a good deal? Have one 16 month old and a 2nd on the way, so leather on the 2nd will get trashed anyway.
Also, is AWD a recommended option in Minneapolis? Several folks said not really, since the city does an swesome job of clearing the snow and my wife can work from home on the really bad days.

I have had cloth and leather with a 3 yr old and a 5 yr old. Believe me, leather is easier to clean. Milk and juice wipe off leather much easier than cloth, which soaks them up. Either way, you can always buy a seat cover or put a towel down on the 2nd row seats to keep them from getting stained or ruined. Then again, the incremental $400 to get leather on the 2nd row if you are willing to spend $800 on the front doesn't seem too bad given you are spending $24,500 for the vehicle.

That was my price for the same vehicle in Houston, TX. They should do better than that in MN. I also got free oil change for couple years.

Buying a car for the S-Plan price is invoice. If a dealer submits an S-Plan coded sale to Mazda, the price cannot differ from what Mazda has designated as the S-Plan price.
When the dealer is audited by Mazda, and it is discovered that the sale price is more, or less then the actual invoice price on an S-Plan deal, the dealership can be subject to heavy fines or other forms of punishment due to breach of contract.
In Connecticut, CX-9 inventory is extremely low, especially the GT's. I would know, because I am a CT dealer. Dealers that I know of have not been willing to go under invoice to sell one, since there are not enough to go around. If you happen to get a dealer to go under invoice, then take it. More power to you!
BTW, what type of CX-9 are you looking for?

about to pull the trigger on a CX9 AWD sport with moonroof/bose, heated seats, backup camera and other extras. Using my own financing to use the 4k rebate
Price: 28,000 +TTL
And for the poster in MN - get the AWD!
#1796 of 3688 anyone notice certain colors driving up price?
Jul 10, 2009 (6:29 am)
i ask because i had been shopping for a Black Cherry GT AWD+Nav and it has been very hard to come by here in Northern NJ. i ended up getting one for 34900+TTL which i know is ~$1k more than TMV according to Edmunds but i had been to 4 dealerships that had one (including one 60 miles away in Long Island, NY) and they were ALL DEMOS with >1200miles on them. short of a blowout price (which i wasn't getting from any of them), i wasn't going to spend new car pricing on a demo model. what is it with owners/managers driving black cherry CX9 GTs around here? i know i could've gotten cheaper if i was flexible about the color but it was the only color my wife and i could agree on. oh well....
