#62 of 129 Got one Touring AWD at cost
Sep 06, 2012 (8:32 am)
Through Costco membership program, dealer knocked off several hundreds from MSRP right away, after 5 minutes negotiation, another $300 off.
Total $25217 (should be invoice) + dealer fees and taxes. Walked out the door a little less than $28k with a full tank of gas. The dealer I bought the car from is amazingly easy to work with, nice guys. BTW I am in Seattle area.
#63 of 129 Bought GT wo tech package

Bought this for my daughter. No discount in Central TX (Austin, San Antonio) and very few cars available. However, one dealer had received just what I was looking for (Sky blue GT wo tech package) three days before so paid sticker. To their credit, there were no additional options and no dealer fees. They did offer almost nothing for her trade so sold it to Carmax for $1300 more than the dealer offered. High volume Kia/Mazda dealer selling cars like crazy. Love it or shove it attitude on pricing. Not the greatest buying experience but a great car.

Just curious, which dealer did you buy from? Have been offered $100 over invoice both in SA and Austin area (Georgetown) for the Touring model.
#65 of 129 New CX-5 Purchase
Sep 14, 2012 (2:47 am)
Bought a new CX-5 Touring with moonroof/bose pkg and tech pkg on 9-12-12. MSRP was $27,160. Paid $580 under MSRP and got it for $26,578 + fees, license and taxes. Out the door price of $27,800 even.
I have been shopping and comparing the RAV4, CR-V, Rouge and CX-5 starting back in January 2012. It is true that the Mazda dealerships do not seem to have very many CX-5 on there lots at any given time and when they do they seem to sale quickly, but not to the point that you do not have time to look around for a deal. In my area (Chesapeake, VA) I have only seen one CX-5 Touring with the upgrade packages that I got. Options other than the standard 3 models are hard to find.
For me (tall guy) the CX-5 was the best physical fit, it looks real nice with plenty of hi-tech features, plus the gas mileage is great. I was sold.
Tips: 1) set up a folder of favorites in your web browser with all the local dealer ships in your area. search them 2 times a week to get an ideal of how long a car sits on the lot before selling. Most dealerships post their new inventory with pictures right on there web page so that makes it very easy to track.
2) when you see a car that is not selling because of it features or maybe color then you will have a better chance to negotiate a lower price. This is what I did. I wanted the technology upgrade but did not want to pay for the leather seats or the expensive 19" wheels. When you have to replace the wheels you are looking at about $1K, ouch. I guess most people did not want to pay extra for the tech package without the leather so the car sat on the lot for over a month. A long time for a 2013 CX-5. This gave me leverage to strike a deal.
#66 of 129 New CX-5 Touring FWD
Sep 17, 2012 (12:23 pm)
Paid 28k OTD for White Touring FWD Moonroof Bose / Tech Package.. Before tax and fees it was about 26k... Faired pretty well considering my build at MSRP is 27,505 (TX) and True Car target buy is at 26,810 (including owner loyalty incentive).

How did you arrive to 27,160 for MSRP? The Mazda website has MSRP for any color other than white with your options for 27,305?

It was posted on bottom of window sticker. The MSRP before upgrades (all weather floor mats, wheel locks, moonroof, technology package [the tech pkg includes a lot of nice features found on the Grand like NAV and Bose sound system]) was 23,895. Good Luck.
#69 of 129 CX- 5 touring w moonroof
Sep 22, 2012 (3:48 pm)
I just bought my white CX5 with moonroof package and all weather mats for $26,000 out the door. I think the sale price before all fees was around $24,200 or so.
I bought this from sport durst Mazda in Durham NC. They told me they actually lost money on this but are a high volume dealer and will make it back that way. I had a terrible experience at Cary Mazda (capital Mazda) when I was told they would match the written offer if I brought it in. 2 hours of waiting and they said they couldn't do it and asked me to pay another $395. The GM was there and told me it wasn't worth driving 25 min to Durham over $395 and that they don't offer loaners or give free initial oil changes. All of this was a lie, as they do offer loaners and give you a free oil change.
Avoid capital Mazda of Cary NC. The GM and sales manager Rachel are liars. Rachel even texted me from a salesperson phone without his knowledge impersonating him saying I lacked integrity for shopping for prices and to never contact him (again she was acting like the sales person) again. Later I text the number back and said I was very surprised by his reaction and he responded he had no idea what I was talking about. He then informed me that the sales manager Rachel was reviewing his messages earlier and must have sent me the messages. SERIOUSLY what manager does that?
#70 of 129 CX5 Touring Purchase
Sep 23, 2012 (1:21 pm)
Paid 24,650 OTD for a Touring with roof rails, cargo cover, floor mats, and wheel locks. It was about 23,050 before tax and title.
#71 of 129 Low prices!
Sep 23, 2012 (6:49 pm)
Wow, the last 2 posts indicate some low prices out there - I just don't see it here in central Texas. I was offered a Touring version with NO options (sticker $24690) for invoice, which is just above $24K. That's BEFORE TT&L, etc.........
