I've been looking for a CX9 Grand Touring FWD (with Bose/Moonroof, Power Tailgate, Navigation & Tow Prep Pkg) in Dolphin Gray with Sand interior in the L.A. area. The Mazda website shows 11 in Dolphin Gray with those options within 100 miles of L.A. But of those 11, only 2 have Sand interior...it's a tough combination to find, but it looks fantastic!
I'm shopping for my cousin who lives in L.A. and a light-colored interior is a requirement for her. She also doesn't wants a lighter exterior color, which rules out Stormy Blue, Black, Copper Red. Silver only comes with Black interior, so it's off the list. That only leaves two choices- Crystal White Pearl (CWP) or Dolphin Gray. We may have to go with the CWP if I can't get as good of a deal on a Dolphin Gray one. There are 21 Crystal White Pearl CX9 Grand Touring FWD models within 100 miles of L.A. I think it's a safe bet that I can negotiate a better deal on one out of 21 (CWP) rather than one out of only two (Dolphin Gray).
She's fine with CWP, but she's been driving a 2007 Lexus GX470 in the same color for the last three years (they call it Blizzard Pearl). Then again, I'm just glad that she likes the CX-9 quite a bit more than her 3-year old Lexus AND she even prefers it over a brand new Lexus GX460 that we test drove! That says a LOT about the CX-9! Now I want one....

Its worth a little more for the dolphin/sand combo and for the change of color but the pearl white doesnt look bad at all and oddly has an extra charge for it. looks like 0% extended thru labor day weekend ... will they just keep extending it?
#2897 of 3688 Is the TrueCar price include the 1000 discount?

Is the TrueCar Guaranteed price includes the 1000 cash rebate or not? Also does it include all the Doc Fees etc.? TrueCar's dealer cost is about 1500 below invoice.
I will content if I can just get TrueCar price with 0% APR without any extra fees.

It's actually been extended thru 9/30/10 already. I thought the new models usually rolled out in Sept but a dealer told me during my test drive the other day that only some models are coming out in Sept, the 2011 CX9 will not be released until late Dec. If he's correct we might see the 0% extended even further on CX9 and other late releases but there's no way to know.

Just purchased CX-9 GT AWD with RES, Nav & power liftgate package for 35,977 (excludes TTF)...already signed the dotted line, but hoping I made a decent deal. Only dealer in area that had the color and options I was looking for. Also got the zero percent financing, but they would have took and addition 1K off if it was a cash offer...but the 0% outweight the difference.

I have 15 CX-9's that just left Japan. I should be done with 2010's by late October and 2011's should get here some point in November.
#2902 of 3688 New Incentives?

Finally bought Dolphin Gray Grand Touring with Remote Starter, Bumper Guard and Cargo Cover past weekend. MSRP 35700, OTD 33550 with 0% APR, owner loyalty rebate applied and Tax Rate 6.25%.
Plan to install Pioneer AVIC-Z120BT in dash navigation and DVD system later on.

I have read some posts indicating that the Pioneer AVIC-Z120BT does not fit in the CX9 dash. Too shallow apparently due to some other wires/cables running in the back of the available space. Do a search with Crutchfield or call Pioneer to confirm.
