#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...

dealer offer $1300 below the invoice for touring?
#61 of 161 Few deals

I picked up CX-5 Touring with nav and moonroof in Portland, OR for $1000 under sticker with $500 loyalty rebate. The car is hard to find with the right options and harder to get a decent deal. Boise had the best price but Portland had the right car at a decent price. I just completed a 3000 mile trip and got about 32.5 mpg at speeds around 65-70.
#62 of 161 Got one Touring AWD at cost

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 161 Bought GT wo tech package
Sep 09, 2012 (2:47 pm)
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 161 New CX-5 Purchase
Sep 14, 2012 (1:47 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.
