About honest dealerships, I do not know whether this depends on the dealership or a particular salesperson, but when we were looking at 2012 CX-9 last January at Lunde Mazda (that's Fargo, North Dakota!), they let us special-order the configuration and color we wanted (Sport, Blue with sand cloth interior with factory installed backup camera) and the sales person did not even ask us for a deposit.
They are not the cheapest, sales or service, but they were treating us well, both for sale of new CX-9 and service or my 08 Mazda3. The whole purchase process was as comfortable as it could be: we had negotiated over e-mail and I wrote a check for the exact amount specified in the last e-mail. They did mention extended warranty while I was signing documents but did not mention it again when I said no to it. Now, if only the new Mazda6 offered cloth heated seats...
By the way, our previous dealership (Southern States Mazda in Durham, NC) were great in sales but only so-so in service, and the one before that (Open Road Mazda, NJ)... almost put me off Mazda for good.
So YMMV, I guess

I have a price of $26, 432, including destination and plus fees and tax, for a 2012 AWD Touring with moonroof and tailgate lift in New Jersey. Is this a good price?

It is Sansone auto mall but it was bogus. It was through AAA, Consumer Reports, and the services for all those on-line discount. I had spoken with the person who responds to internet inquiry and she assured me it was that price with only $349 doc fee, tax and registration, promising no additional fees. She even looked the car up in the inventory and confirmed she had it. I even e-mailed her to confirm and she did. When I went down there today they added on about $3000 in fees for nitrogen for the tires, window etching, pinstriping, and 3 year dent warranty. They refused to honor their agreement so I left. I do not recommend them.

Yes, it seemed to be a combination of bait and switch and false advertising. I think it was the first time I was at a dealership where the manager did not come over when I decided not to buy which proves they knew what they were pulling.

If you are looking for an honest dealer in NJ then try Hamilton Mazda. I found them easy to deal with when I bought my 2012 CX-9.
