Incentives often vary by region, but here in Atlanta, Edmunds shows the following offers-
(Manufacturer to Customer Cash)
$500 Mazda APR Cash- available to customers who finance thru Mazda’s captive lender.
(Special Financing offers)
0% APR for 60 months- must be financed thru manufacturer’s captive finance company.
(Manufacturer to Dealer Cash- aka ‘Marketing Support’)
$1000 Dealer Cash- Dealer Engagement program may only be combined with standard Mazda Capital Services or non-Mazda Capital Service leasing or retail contracts.
$500 Dealer Bonus Cash- Dealer Bonus Cash is available towards leasing or retail purchases. May be combined with other available incentives.
“Clear as MUD”, as my grandpa used to say! =) But none of the incentives specifically state that they CAN NOT be combined with the 0% APR. Usually, if a cash incentive can’t be combined with a special finance deal, it will state so.
Here's the link to 'Incentives and Rebates' listings here on Edmunds- http://www.edmunds.com/car-incentives/
Just enter your zip code, choose Mazda, 2011 CX-9, then Grand Touring AWD to verify the incentives available in your area.
I also checked TrueCar.com to see their best price for a 2011 CX-9 Grand Touring, AWD, Bose/Moonroof, Power Liftgate and Navigation- MSRP- $39,650, Best Local Price- $34,898. It is factoring in a $1000 cash to dealer incentive in that sale price. So $35,591 with 0% financing sounds pretty darn good. It’s a good deal as it stands, but you might be able to haggle them down a little more. I would probably offer to meet in the middle $35,091 ($500 off), but it may not be worth the trouble for just $500…it’s up to you.
In any case, the 0% financing is an AWESOME deal! With a 10% down payment, financed at the average market rate for a 60-month loan (6.99% according to Edmunds and Bankrate), you would end up paying $6450 in interest over the life of the loan! So the amount you will save is HUGE with 0%- it reduces your payment by more than $100! =)
Don’t let them try to temp you with the 2.9% APR for 72-months loan, which is the other ‘special financing’ offer. While 2.9% doesn’t sound like very much, over the life of a $35k loan it adds up to $3300+ in interest! Adding insult to injury, it only reduces the monthly payment by about $53 compared to 0% for 60 months!
As for choosing between the two offers, do you want/need the roof rails? You’ll be paying $400 more for roof rails and a cargo net, but you can easily get a cargo net on any model if you want one. Are they the same interior and/or exterior color? Just out of curiosity, what color(s) are you considering? My personal favorite is the Dolphin Gray with Sand interior…with Stormy Blue with Sand coming in a very close 2nd!

First, thanks a lot for such a detailed reply. After I sent this post last night I realized that I did not check the inventory of all the local dealers to see which dealers have multiple CX-9 GT AWD and would be motivated to sell. I found one dealer that I had not requested a quote so just shot an email out asking for a quote and told that I plan to buy the vehicle in a day or two.
Got a call at 10 am from the sales person and his quote was around the ball park of the previous quotes but he did not say I have to pay more for 0%. Since I was in the neighborhood and he agreed that he will work with me if I came in person I told him I will stop by first before going to the other dealer. I told him clearly what my priorities were and was able to get a good OTD price before any serious negotiations. Was able to get it down a little more and got the price (before TTL) to $34,685 with all incentives & 0% financing.
Normally I would have gone to the other dealers who quoted me the earlier prices (as originally planned), but since their OTD numbers was significantly higher ($1150 to $1600) I decided to give my business to the person who gave me the best OTD quote over the phone/email and agreed to work with me (and actually did) if I come in person. So I went ahead and bought the Copper Red Mica (Sand Interior) GT AWD with the Nav/MoonroofBose/PowerLiftgate package. Our other car is a similar blue and my 1 year old loves red color so we decided to go with it. Dolphin Gray did not appeal to us but I think it is an interesting & unique color by Mazda.
I think this is a decent deal what do you all think?

Great deal - better than what I got. Walked in on 5/31 late afternoon for a GT AWD, Moonroof, Bose, NAV, Power Liftgate, Remote Start. MSRP = 40,150 and they offered 36,553. I got it down to 36,000 and did a 3 year/36k lease. All the numbers coincided with car_man's lease rates.
However, I see that there was also up to $1500 Mfg to dealer cash in June which I could have used if I waited...

Those are pretty much inline with what we have in the North East.
When you take the 0% financing, you get an additional $500 customer cash rebate.
If you elect to pay cash, the dealer can offer you the $1,000 dealer engagement cash, but, they do not have to since it is not a public offer.
Mazda clearly states to the dealer body that you CANNOT combine dealer engagement cash with any lease or finance offers by Mazda Capital Services.
The only incentive that can be combined with all offers is the owner loyalty incentive of $500.

#3338 of 3688 2011 CX9 AWD Touring
Aug 21, 2011 (2:31 pm)
Thanks to all previous posters for helping me in my recent purchaseof a 2011 CX9 AWD Touring. After lots of research I closed on the following:
Vehicle price: $31,200, w/ moon/Bose, powerlift gate + $200 doc fee + TTL. Although I live in NC, I had to go to Maryland to get an AWD. No dealers in either NC or SC had a Touring AWD and I didn't want to pay extra for GT trims thaht were available.
I searched for along time and knew what the price points were. Most dealers in NC were going to change me around $33,000 to get comparable vehicle. Since I was going to DC for business anyway, I checked up that way and after dickering with lots of dealers (most of whom wanted around $33K with a low value on my trade in (2010 Mazda 3 Sport) I found one who was a dream. Three email offers, two phone calls for trade in details. was all it took. I showed up at dealership and there were no games at all. Same price as we agreed on for CX9 and for my sight unseen trade in. Very happy.
