First, I'm not buying a used 2008. If I want to do that, they are going at auction for about $18,500.
What auctions do you go to? I cannot touch a 2007 GT AWD for under $22,000 at the auctions. I have been to 6 auctions from New York to Florida. Mazda wants $24,000 +++ for off lease CX-9's. $18,500 is a pipe dream my friend.....
Second, I know from this thread that the car has at least $6,250 in cash on it (or did as of June)
The cash incentive on the 2009 CX-9 for June was $4,000 and an additional $1,000 if you currently own a Mazda. I don't even print out the 2008 incentives anymore because the North East sold out of 2008's 6 months ago

the # came from a database and was for 2008s with about 30 clicks on them. That number is up approximately $1200 this week. I know that there are few good deals at the auctions these days.
Local Mazda dealer near me has 5 2008s still on their lot. I thought they were all new, but it turns out one of them was a demo. It looks like they bought 4 of them from other dealers - 2 from ft. myers and 2 from somewhere in MS according to the sticker.
So what do you think a good deal is, in relation to invoice, on both a new 2008 and a new 2009? My guess is invoice minus 4k for 2009 and invoice minus 6.25k for 2008? Unrealistic?

Sounds like a good deal. I got the exact same trim, options for $26050,without the $1000 loyalty cash. Got them to add splash guards for $99 extra, installed.
Is there a way to get the $1000 cash without being a current/past Mazda owner?

As a consumer, I would want a 2008 below invoice plus incentives. I would like a 2009 for invoice knowing that the 2010's are on order and should be here come September.
Since I am a dealer, I will give you the business side. First, having any 2008's left is a bad business mistake. How that dealer has 2008's left is beyond me. 2009's in my area, North East, are becoming very very slim. No dealer will swap with another dealer and 2009 supply will not last until the 2010's get here. I would really like to make a few hundred over invoice on the 2009's. Fortunately, in my area there is a supply vs demand issue in my favor.
I am not aware of the inventory of CX-9's in your area, but, if you can negotiate at least an invoice deal on a 2009 CX-9, I would think that is a good deal. If you can get better then that, then more power to you! I would stay away from a 2008, since you will not be able to buy a "new 2008" at the market rate of a pre-owned 2008.
Let us know how you make out!

Found a 2009 CX9 Touring FWD with bose/moonroof MSRP $34550. Per edmunds, invoice is $31,885. I was quoted $28,060. That's $6,500 below sticker, $3,800 below invoice. Seems like a good price to me, but it seems some on here have done even better. Thoughts?

thanks for the tip. they offered me a good price, but not as good as yours (even if I add $1,000 to yours because I'm not a mazda customer). Did you do anything to get them to lower the price?
Also, did you mess with a trade?
#1872 of 3688 Got mine today

Went in today to get price quotes and took what I got in Cary,NC. We chose a Black 2WD Sport just cause my wife doesn't care about all the bells and whistles. The only option it had was power seats at $490 I think. MSRP was almost $31K even. First quote was 26,900 with owner loyalty. I asked about their website which said 23,995. They came back with 23,995. I said sounds good. If you throw in the roof rack I won't go compare quotes. After some himming and hawing they did it. So final deal was
$23,995+ttl = $25,300 out the door for standard Sport with roof rack and power seats option.
I was disappointed in trade in value. They offered 2k for my '03 mazda mpv. We just decided to keep it.

Did you end up calling or emailing? We did no negotiating, they offered the great deal upfront. We did not trade because we have a 16 year old who is taking our 2000 Honda Accord.

I emailed. They gave me a price of $28k on a sticker of $34.4. About $1500 worse than your deal. I'm not a mazda owner so I figure I'm not going to get that $1,000, but I was hoping to get the other $500. I would like to trade in my current car, which is most of the reason I'm buying new instead of getting a slightly used one through auction, which I have access to. Had a bad experience last time I sold a car myself and don't really want to deal with that again. I am calling tomorrow to discuss if I can get a price, or at least a "range" or general expectation for my trade unseen, but if I drive all the way up there only to have them back out on the trade price or make a really low ball offer because they know they have me, my blood pressure will go through the roof. I'll leave, on a matter of principle, but it will tick me off to no end. I guess it's a matter of trust. I can tell you right now that I would not trust my local dealer enough to drive across town. I hope your experience is representative!
