This does NOT seem like a good deal at all! A few things we really need to know are as follows:
1.) How much are they allowing for your trade-in (You can post on the real-world trade values of the edmunds forum and qbrozen can give you a realistic trade in value - Edmunds, Blackbook, and KBB are running from about 14,500-17,000 for your current car which means you should definitely have a good amount of equity)?
2.) Are you purchasing another 2012 awd sport which has an MSRP of around $33,000? If so, you should be getting at minimum $6,350-6,550 off of that truck since you are a current Mazda owner (Invoice-$4,000 incentive-holdback). Others are getting even more off so there might be another $1,000 in another incentive that we are not easily aware of.
3.) What is your tax rate and dmv fees in your state? Are you taxed on the difference between the trade and the new vehicle.
4.) What is the interest rate you are being quoted for your 5 year loan? Credit unions are running 1.49-1.99% on 5 year loans at this time.
Also, never deal in monthly payments if you have not answered the questions to #'s 1-4 before making the deal. If you are able to answer the questions above, we should be able to give you a better idea on the deal.

Thanks for getting back - i live in NY & car would be purchased in NJ. So they said $418 a month for everything (60 payments/five years) for same cx9 i have but the new 2012 & i would trade in my 2009 cx9. Dealer only dealt w/ monthly payment $ - live and learn. Also, my cx9 is in excellent shape w/ $38,000 miles. Sounding more like not such a great deal. Thanks & let me know what kind of offer I should be looking for with my trade in and purchasing a 2012 cx9 sport awd.

Does anyone know the CX-9 incentives for December?
#3612 of 3688 Has anyone seen a 2013 Cx-9 in a dealership?
Dec 07, 2012 (9:15 am)
I received an email from Mazda corporate yesterday with details of a lease deal for a 2013 CX-9 Grand Touring. I have called 3 dealerships in the Westchester, NY lower Connecticut area and none of them have them in. Has anyone seen a 2013 model at a dealership or been told that dealers have them? Has anyone seen one in the NY or Philadelphia area? Mazda Corporate could give me no leads.

Our local dealer in Montgomery County, PA, said the 2013's were on a ship in the middle of the ocean and should be at the dealer around the last week in December. They are heavily discounting the 2012's now.

Do you know what the incentives on the 2012s are? I cannot seem to find them since November's expired.
#3615 of 3688 Which option better ? 2010 or 2012???
Dec 21, 2012 (2:43 pm)
I am in the process of buying a cx-9 and have one at a dealer that is a 2010 AWD Touring white/charcoal with Bose/power lift gate/ rear camera with 23k miles going for $24,700 before tax and registration. In addition, I am negotiating with another dealer for a new 2012 silver/black leather AWD touring with Bose/lift gate and backup camera( same specs as the used) for $28,800 also before tax. I am hoping to bring the 2012 price down to at least 28k. Any thought as to whether the newer more expensive one is the better option long term regarding value and resale?? Or just go with the used one which is in great shape? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Hoping to make a decision by Monday dec24th.

If the price difference ends up being only $4k, then I'd take the new 2012 over the 2010. The new car warranty, fresh tires and higher resale value easily offset the $4k differential.
#3617 of 3688 Burning plastics smell of new CX-9
Dec 21, 2012 (8:56 pm)
I am trying to buy a CX-9 as well.
Today, when I tested drive the car (GT) on a uphill road, I smell something like burning plastics. I stopped the car and find the smell came from the front hood . I repeated the uphill test for another two times. I did not smell anything during the last test. The salesperson told me the smell came from some spray on the engine, which protects the engine. It will go away after I put hundred miles on it. Did anyone notice such smell when driving a new CX-9.
BTW, which trim offer more comfort driving, touring or grand touring? Is the only real difference between touring and grand touring is wheel size?
Will update my purchase price for 2012 model.

Yes, it is fairly common for a new car to have that smell. My CX-9 had it and the smell went away in a week or so.
