"It's a great car and beats the pants off the CRV which is outdated and ugly as sin".
Spoken like a loyal Mazda sales person! Re: your comment vs the new CR-V, you are aware that CR rates the CR-V higher in a head to head comparison and I suspect its sales volume will far exceed the CX-5s!.... A shame that Mazda can't keep up with the demand. I'd consider the CX-5 (if I could actually find one... ) but will never pay sticker when there are so many other good choices out there (CR-V, RAV-4, Mitsu Outlander, Nissan Rogue, Chevy Equinox, Kia Sorento, Subie Forester, etc).

Us dealers have come to learn is was not that they could not keep up with demand but actually demand was underestimated. Mazda recently announced an increased production of CX-5's as well as doubling the production of SKYACTIV engines and transmissions.
Since these cars are built in Japan, it will take 3 to 4 months before the supply v demand balances out.

I have been into the market very recently. Drove crv, rav4,cx5,rogue. I refuse to believe that cx5 white washes crv. Though I didn't buy the crv, I don't think cx5 was worth 24.6k before ttl. If I had only these 2 options, I would go for crv ex FWD instead of cx5 touring. Crv offers too many features for that price and cx5 feels powerless on the ramp IMO.
And MSRP is BS. At lease in North California I could at least take out 500 off 24.6k. Don't forget to haggle more in case of add ons.
#53 of 161 Does the CX5 Touring Model haveAuto On/Off Headlights?

It's unclear on most descriptions. Looks like some dealers list it as auto on/off headlights and others say delay-off headlights.

Local dealer has offered a "base" (no options) Touring CX-5 at invoice. Sounds pretty good to me - will check out tomorrow. Don't need all the fancy "techie" stuff, moon roof, etc. Had already told them I would not buy at MSRP......

No,you have to buy the tech package to get auto on and off headlights but you also get HID with adaptive control.
#56 of 161 1000 miles on my Touring AWD
Jul 22, 2012 (8:40 pm)
Picked up a Touring AWD with moon roof/Bose and Tech Package,crystal white paint,mats,cargo cover and locks MSRP $28,800.
The dealer who I bought 2 other Mazda's from told me if I gave him a deposit of $200.00 I could have the next CX-5 that came in,he had nothing on the lot and the last one he had got sold as it rolled of the car carrier.
They gave me a $830.00 discount along with the $500.00 loyalty bonus which is better than most who advertise they will discount it 999.00 but when you read the fine print that includes the loyalty bonus.
Watch the dealers who add on a processing fee over and above the tags/Title/Registration,I've seen some who charge an additional $400.00 but that was in New Jersey so maybe they all do it there.
I talked to one dealer in Langhorn PA. Reedman Toll who claimed they would sell me one with a $1200.00 discount but even if true and even if they didn't have some hidden fee's it wasn't worth my time and effort to drive 100 miles to find out.
A GT came in along with my Touring but the 19" low profile tires are a deal breaker for me.Expect to pay $300.00/ea when you replace them and the road conditions in N.E. PA make them impractical.
After 1000 miles in the CX-5 I can say it's all that I expected.Tight stiff chassis,handles great with very little body lean,very comfortable inside and quite and while the engine is short on torque a heavy foot solves that problem when needed.

#59 of 161 GT AWD with tech pkg
Aug 17, 2012 (6:53 pm)
Just put a deposit on a GT AWD with tech package, $200 off MSRP plus $500 military rebate ($29715 before TTL). Car had just arrived at port when I went to test drive, so hopefully will be in in a week or 2. Only a couple of other similar models within a 60 mile range of NoVa, and all the others had already had dealer add-ons installed. Great buying experience so far, no pressure, pleasant sales staff, at Browns Chantilly Mazda. Just noticed, BTW, that MSRP has already gone up $300, according to Mazda website, since we put our deposit down on Thursday...
