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: 30,477

    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?

  • oldbearcatoldbearcat Posts: 179

    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 Viva Las CrucesPosts: 41,579

    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.

    After looking at the CRV and Rogue we decided to get the CX-5. Seemed like the middle of all the options with no major downside (and 0% financing doesn't hurt).

    For the 2015 Grand Touring AWD Red with the Tech Package (so all the bells and whistles) price was 29,799 with 150 doc fees. We got 4600 for our 2003 Element (which on KBB was listed for 3500 in our shape and milage). This was in Seattle WA. Was cool the car only had 5 miles when we drove it off the lot.

    Question, they offered us some Vehicle Service Contract with Zurich for 1549 that was good for 8 years or 100k miles. Are these worth even considering? I tend to think no

    Thoughts on the deal, according to Edmonds says True Value should be 30,742 for invoice.

    I would never buy a 3rd party extended warranty.

    Totally what I was thinking. Thanks for the help. Any thoughts on the deal? Hard for me to tell since the trade is in the mix. I am happy with the monthly payments thought

    Well, you got an "independent" value number for your trade so it sounds like you treated that part of your deal separately from the new car deal. So that's good.

    You can "appraise" the new car here by drilling down under the Make/Model/Year tabs above, plug in your Seattle zip and the options (click "Build"). Then compare the sales price to TMV. The idea is to try to beat TMV, since that represents the average price paid in your area. You want to be below average. B)

    Pay attention to the bottom line prices instead of the payment. That way the dealer will have trouble padding your payment number without you realizing what you are actually paying for.

    Yeah, that number was the 30,742 for invoice (based on the add ons and trim level) and we paid 29,799 plus 150 doc fee. Feel good about it but wanted more, of course that was without the tech package so I guess it's all good :)

  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 41,579

    Sounds good to me. Nice rides too - we test drove a 2014 a few months ago. Really hit a lot of sweet spots, including the projected MPG.

    After you get some miles on it, please write up a Consumer Review.

    Guys,

    I just got an offer for $28,800 before tax, tags, fees for a 2015 AWD Grand Touring with Technology package in Virginia. This is the lowest price if seen in my area.

    Good deal?
