2015 Mazda CX-5 Prices Paid and Buying Experience

edited May 4 in Mazda

I just bought 2015 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring (White) with Tech package. It doesn't have any other extras like roof rails etc.

I paid $29,099 for the car DMV fees (around $275) Doc fees - $75 No Sales Tax (Oregon)

Everything was negotiated via phone/email before I went to buy the car.

Only surprise addition was loan origination fee of $350 for Mazda financing for the 0.9% for 36 months. But, I thought I was good deal with the car price so did not complain much about it. I don't think auto loans have any financing fees usually - is this just a way to make additional money?

    That sure sounds like a dealer fee. But, on Mazda's website, under the 0.9% financing offer, it does say that "loan origination fees may apply".

    That's the first I've heard of it.. maybe, another bad trend starting.

    I'm thinking of a 2015 Mazda CX-5 Touring AWD in red, which I'm getting out the door for $29k (including all taxes and fees). This is in NE Ohio.

    Given the above deal for the Grand Touring, I'm a little unsure now!

    @tfu747, oshogg stated they have no sales tax in Oregon; so that alone could save you over $2k :D Must be nice!! I'm looking hard at a Honda CR-V EXL and a Subaru Forester 2.5i Limited; but am adding the CX-5 Grand Touring to the list! I also happen to think that the "loan origination fee" is a total scam! All they're charging you for is beginning the loan process! WTF? I've seen online where experts say you may be able to negotiate that away if you try. I'll be watching that little cost! If anyone can tell me why I should buy the CX-5 let me know...thanks!

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 28,054

    Yeah... loan origination fees on a car loan are right up there with $499 and up document fees.. ridiculous.. You can fix that right quick by having your own financing in place. Once they see that they aren't going to even get the base kickback from Mazda Finance on the deal, they'll change their tune..

    I just purchased a 2015 Mazda CX-5 Touring in Meteor Gray with the moonroof/audio package, with no other accessories from the dealership for OTD of $27,000, and TTL was 1,907.29.

    I think I received a good deal, but want to get other's thoughts.

    I live in TX and looking to buy a 2015 Mazda CX-5 Touring 2WD. I am not looking to buy White or Red, which cost more. I am also considering a CRV and RAV4. After some initial online requests, the best deal I have received is: Sales price (incl. destination) - 24223. Invoice on this is 24240+830 Options (tint, wheel guards, door edge) - 620 Documentation - 50 TTL - 1740 OTD - 26633.

    I have not yet started direct negotiations with the dealers. What is your feedback on the price? What can I aim for?

    I bought a 2015 CX-5 Touring AWD Monday evening. I'm eligible for S plan, so there was no negotiation - got it for invoice. I had a 2010 CRV, and, didn't care for the new one - drive train hasn't been improved. I passed on the RAV4 as well - too underpowered to suit me. The dealer did not charge a loan origination fee, but, did hit me with a $195 "Doc" fee.

    Regards: Oldbearcat

  • steverstever YooperlandPosts: 40,209

    Well, congrats @oldbearcat, didn't even realize you were shopping. As I recall, your wife didn't like your old CR-V either?

    As doc fees go, that one wasn't too bad. Only $145 more that it should have been. ;)

    Color? (maybe you can post a pic here or in Reader's Rides).

    Stever: The Mazda is the Meteor Gray color. Wife didn't like the Honda because the seats were very uncomfortable to her on long trips because of her two hip implants. Yeah - you're right - I was expecting a $50 Doc fee. Oh well. Started shopping because my daughter wanted the Honda for her kids' nanny, and, she bought it off me on Sunday.

    Ah yeah, it's nice to have presold your trade when you decide to shop new.

    I was pretty smitten with the Blue Mica myself; didn't get to see the Meteor Gray.

    stever: Yeah, I liked the Blue Mica too. However, dealer only had a 14 model in that color, and, the car was more expensive than the 15 model I bought. Took the Mazda on a long business trip today. Boy-what an improvement over the Honda I had.

    @cpk5, have you hit any dealers in person yet?

    Not much data but it looks like invoice is the car price to shoot for (note that some people occasionally beat "S Plan" or other kinds of "easy" deals (Costco, USAA etc.). It's not as easy a process though.

    For your online quotes, it looks like the dealer is adding to their profit with the options, but the options seem more useful than, say, pin stripes.

    I should be able to get invoice (SPLAN) - $500 (corporate discount) - $500 (college grad) = $1k below invoice.

    Going to head to dealer now to confirm.

    Anyone else get such a deal?

    Sorry, one last question ... what state? Mazda has regional numbers.
