I was told July incentives expire today (Aug 3rd). I was quoted 28600 for Touring AWD w/ Bose Moon. That includes 1K Mazda owner plus 4K incentive that seems pretty uniform across the board. Gotta ask how pop tart can trade in a clunker for a vehicle that gets 17-18mpg combined? I know we are not buying the CX-9 for mpg so I gotta wonder how that works.....or doesn't. I know the GM CUVs Acadia et al were available 20 mpg combined, but I didn't think the CX-9 qualified. Then again this is the government we are talking so who knows.
I am willing to bet that if you ride out the clunker craze and when 2010s come in with a mild refresh the 2009s will be even a better deal. Only problem is colors seem limited, plenty of black and grey and very few white/red on the lots in Chi-area.

Yeah, the July rebate/incentive ended yesterday. So, I want to know what it is starting today. Any chance the incentive is more then 4K now?
And I agree that the deals will be better at the end of the cash for clunkers program but no low end models or good colors will be left. That's the problem.
When someone gets the new August incentive, will you please post it? Thanks!

The CX-9 falls into the Category 1 Truck section of the Clunkers program. Which means it needs to have at least 18 MPG and 4 MPG (for $3500) or 5 MPG (for $4500) more than clunker you're trading in. That's if you're trading in another SUV, which I was. I'm not sure about what the rules are for cars. I was getting rid of an '01 Durango which was rated at a combined 14 MPG and going to an '09 CX-9 FWD which had a combined of 18 MPG so I qualified for $3500. The AWD does not qualify since it's below 18 MPG.. I would have loved to get the full $4500 and could have on other SUV's rated at 19 or 20 MPG but preferred the CX-9 over the others.

According to the dealers I spoke to today, the rebate and incentives are unchanged for August. (FYI)

The dates on the Mazda website have also changed from Aug 3rd to Aug 31st. If you are not picky on colors or options Sept. may be better, but looks like some good deals can be had right now. I have considered the Acadia or even the Outlook thinking Saturn would have to discount, but if you want a Moonroof and AWD good luck to you. For the price of an AWD Touring w/Bose/roof you can not touch a GM CUV. Sorry General ahhemm Govt. Motors maybe next time.
Thanks pop tart for the heads up on the FWD available for the CARS program, I am not sure if everyone knew that. Just think that rusted out Navajo(explorer clone) sitting in your driveway now be worth $4500-5500!!!.only in America.

Can someone recommend a dealer in the NY/NJ/PA/CT/DE area? I don't mind traveling to get the best price. Thanks!

I'm also looking for same.
I have been talking to john kennedy mazda in PA for a blue/sand cx-9 touring with moonroof/bose. the best he's offering right now is 33650 - 4000 - 1000 (owner loyality). This is the lowest i have found for a blue/sand so far. They have a lot in inventory and may give a better price if I'm not too inclined on the blue color.
is this a good price?

Seems like what I am getting quoted in WI/IL AWD Touring Bose/Moon pearl/tan 33600-4K-1K loyalty. We have decided that if you don't want a Van this is one of the best values $/cargo space. Again the GM CUVs are a little bigger, but you can not get the same features for the price.
I think it is a good price, but I have seen many Silver/Black and Blue out there so use your judgement, if they are not moving at that price and the 2010's come in I would bet you could save a couple more bucks.

We are in the market for a CX-9 Touring FWD with Moonroof/Bose pkg., roof rack and homeline/compass. We found one that still needs the home/link compass installed in Blue Mica with Black interior. I offered $27,500 with home/link compass and roof cross bars thrown in plus TTL. The dealer offered $28,500 plus TTL and no homelink/compass or roof cross bars. We are in a stand off. How's my pricing?

I can't comment about your price, but rest assured that both homelink/roofrail can be installed easily by yourself. No need for dealers to do them. So, this makes it flexible for your negotiation.
- roofrail: 10 minutes with a screwdriver
- homelink/audodimming: 30mins-2hours (depending on your skill)
Parts can be bought at many internet Mazda dealers.
Here is one
(free S&H > $100 - this is important 'cause stuffs like roofrails cost $$$ to ship)
