Can someone please tell me more about this 4,000 dealer incentive cash that I see posted about above? Is this nationwide? Is this being offered on all 09 CX-9's? Is it in addition to the $1500 manufacturer rebate being offered? (I should not that I am NOT using Mazda financing)
I want to purchase the base model with no options which is $29,820 plus destination. Invoice is around $28K. Anyone know what I should be able to get this for? Will I get the $4k + $1,500 off that price? =$22,500?

No not both. EITHER $4k manufacturer to dealer incentive OR $1500 cash back with special Mazda financing rates. If you have secured your own financing, i would go with the $4k. If you are a Mazda owner now you CAN add on an additional $1k loyalty rebate.

A quick price calc would be invoice (excluding destination) less holdback (probably $530 or so, basically MSRP incl destination x 1.75%) less the $4k fact to dealer cash plus dealer profit (2-5% of cost?), then add back the destination charge because it is an actual cost to the dealer that they must pay. So, assuming a $750 destination charge, I would say you are probably looking at somewhere just south of $25k, or $5,500 off sticker. If you own a mazda you can subtract an additional $1,000 for the rebate. Lay this formula out for the sales manager and I think you will get your deal done pretty quickly. The biggest sticking point might be how much profit you think the dealer should get. I think 3% is pretty fair, so maybe start with 2%. The biggest unknown is whether they have any hidden volume incentives that they can use to bring the price down further. Without knowing that, it's tougher to argue lower than the result using the formula laid out above. Also check trucar.com and edmunds to get a feel for average actual prices paid.

Doh. That's still more then I have to spend. I only have 23K (+ tax, title, registration) to spend on the base model. This vehicle may never come low enough for me to buy it. I may need to look at other brands
Any chance if I hold out until later this fall that I could get this for 23K?

I think I read somewhere in here that the 2008s had $5-6k incentives well after the 2009s started coming out, but the obvious risk is whether the inventory will be there.
You could go in and lay it out straight to them and say, this is what I have to spend, can you get there. Worst case they simply say no and you have your answer. If they can get there, I would say there must be some kind of other relatively big volume incentive that they are sharing with you, and they are making very little on the car.
The article in the link below indicates supply/demand might be starting to come in line a bit more, so whether big discounts will be available later will depend a lot on whether that's true...

Somewhere within this thread a buyer mentioned getting a great rate at penfed.com. I finally decided to check it out and it was a pleasant surprise. Unlike B of A, which 2 days later is still trying to process my app, penfed gave me a result in 5 minutes. Check is already in the mail supposedly. You do have to pay $20 to join their group if you're not a military relative/member but I think its a good cause and worth it.
Hope this helps someone....

I ended up buying at a different dealer. I got a '09 FWD CX-9 with moonroof/bose in the exact color we wanted for $28k even out hte door excluding state taxes. I think the "price" was $27345 plus doc fee, temp tag, etc. that got it to $28k out the door. Again, I will still have to pay state tax on that - they didn't collect it because I bought out of state.

Trying to work a deal in DFW.. 2009 CX-9 Sport. No options. Tried to get $22k + TTL with the 0% Financing that's after $3500 for cash for clunkers plus the mazda $500 kicker and $1500 disc. on CX-9's. That would make it $27.5k before discounts. We got close.. $22.8k but he wouldn't do the 0% he said the price was two low and their deal with the lender wouldn't let him do it. He said I would need to do $25.6k if I wanted the 0%.. I thought the connection between sales price and finance % was BS. I didn't have to make a deal so I walked.. Is the $27.5k before discounts reasonable?

Sorry folks, was out-of-town for a while with no internet. Please try the Browning Mazda in Cerritos or the Tuttle-Click Mazda in Irvine.
I finally got my 2009 Mazda CX 9 FWD GT for $31,689 + TTL. It comes with the GT Assist Package, Moon-Roof Package and towing Package thru Cerritos dealer.
Things went pretty smoothly, seems like Mazda is doing well (so are other dealers due to the "clunker" deal) and it took forever to do the financing/paperwork etc.
#1902 of 3688 August 2009 Dealer Incentives for CX-9?
Aug 02, 2009 (4:50 pm)
I know the July 2009 dealer incentive on the CX-9 was 4K. Any changes for August? Thanks!
