#82 of 122 Buying Experience CX-5 Touring FWD
Nov 20, 2012 (1:14 pm)
Joined this board to inform others about experience and hoping they can take it into account and save on their car purchase.
Bought a Mazda CX-5 FWD no tech/moonroof for 26,570 out the door with a full tank of gas and 2 miles on it. The dealership tried to negotiate a 26 sticker price off the bat even though the MSRP was 25,150. Make sure you print out the specifications of the car you want before you go.
The invoice price of the car 23,501 which I didn't see until later because this was my first time buying a car, ever.
The dealer was very experienced: had me drive the car, explained all the features, told stories about his kids, the whole shebang ...and then when it got down to pricing offered it for 27. We initially shook on 26,8 but last minute I started to feel off about that deal (paying 27k for the touring with no extra packages seemed steep). Granted there are few white tourings with black interior with the specs I wanted, had to drive 1-2 hours just to see one.
To be honest, I feel as though I overpaid but still love my car. Some tips I learned: the friendlier the sales guy, the more customers will overpay. don't ever feel like you owe the dealership anything even if you have spent hours talking, also throw in some incentives for yourself right before you sign (if you throw in .... I'll sign right now and you've got a deal-- I did this and got $300 off because I decided I wanted roof racks and wheel locks and they wanted to compensate me for it). That moment right before you sign and have spent hours negotiating is crucial, you can use it your favor -always- or walk. Always leave with a full tank and always choose a comfortable price in your head and NEVER budge from it. Also, go on a dead day, end of the month on a Monday. I understood that they probably paid around 22-23k for the car so made about 3,5 off my deal.
I would have felt better walking out the door with the car I have for 25k flat. But hey, such is life.

Great purchase. I won't make you feel bad about how many nickels above you paid, but I did want to throw this out to you: I'm surprised dealerships are still in business in this day and age. There are so many rock bottom ways of buying a car that ensure you never have to deal with some joker who knows nothing about the cars he/she is selling. Next time, and from now on, use internet buying, credit union buying services, or your favorite wholesale club's buying service. Dealerships are for one thing: "trying the shoe on for size." Edmunds and other resources are for research, and buying services are for purchasing. Best of luck with your car. From all research I have done (to include "trying the shoe on at the dealership"), it looks like a winner.

I was quoted $27,122.04 + TTL for a CX5 Grand Touring FWD. No additional options. I was told this was "employee pricing". Anyone have any input on whether this is a good deal or not? Thanks.

I was told that Costco members receive 500. under invoice no negotiations. I was looking for grand touring fwd. With tech package. Invoice price was 28,665.
My price before tax title and license would be 28,065. I would say you have a good offer.

I purchased my CX-5 on 1/2/13 in Dallas. Here's my deal:
The Car (MSRP/Edmunds Invoice):
CX-5 FWD GT: (27,345/26,557)
Crystal White Exterior: (200/178)
Tech Package: (1,325/1,179)
Wheel Locks: (55/44)
Purchase Price: 27,190
Sales Tax: 1,668
Dealer Inventory Tax: 60
Doc Fee (Dealer Additional Profit): 125
I qualified for the $500 Mazda loyalty so my price was $500 less than the OTD above (28,689). I wanted to keep that separate from the numbers as not everyone will get that $500. I also financed at the promo rate of 0.9/36.
This price was obtained without negotiation via the Costco Buying Service. I thought I would use the Costco quote as a starting point for negotiation but it seemed so low I didn't try to push it.

I bought a CX-5 Sport for my daughter at Hennessy Mazda Southlake. They advertised the car for $20,999 and that is what I paid with the only option the bluetooth package. The MSRP was $23,290. I found that discounts on CX-5 were less than $1,000 at other dealers so this seemed like a good deal. My daughter is thrilled! They included a full tank of gas.
I worked with Chris Pulliam and he was very professional and responsive. I would definitely buy from him again.
