    Not sure what you mean by "send us some proof", how?. We did everything by internet with the dealer and they honored their price quote. The price ($17,500) did include their dealer fee. We have been driving around with our new car (Copper Red) for a few weeks now and we love it. It is such a fun car to drive and so comfortable.

    Date: August 8, 2008
    Location: San Diego, CA
    Trim: Grand Touring
    Any extra accessories: Color-Keyed Door Edge Guards, Rear Bumper Guard, All-Weather Floor Mats
    Price: $21750 (including dest charge) + TTL, and $0 down 0% financing
    Comment: Wanted a GT in Stormy Blue, but that color was really difficult to find. The nearest one was in San Francisco, almost 500 miles away (but only a $49 plane ticket). Worked with Pedro at Hayward Mazda. He was great, but finance department person was very difficult to work with. Flew there in the morning, picked up vehicle and drove home (and saw about 33.5 mpg!) Very happy overall.
  • About a week ago we bought a Mazda5 GT silver no options for 22400 + TTL in Orange Mazda, Albany, NY. Got 0.0% for 36 months.

    Overall experience is pleasant, test drove in the evening, gave them a call next morning, visited them for 30 minutes in the afternoon to sign the papers and pick up the vehicle.
  • Houston, TX

    Just paid $18,900 with all fees and taxes ("drive-out") for 2008 silver Mazda5, Sport trim, automatic 5-speed transmission, no extra features, less than 35 miles on the odometer. Did I get a good deal?

    Well to give you a comparison here in San Antonio that model has been running for $17,995 plus TT&L so I take it the price before that was close to $17,500?
  • Thanks for the response. Yes, the price before TTL (had to look that up!) was $17,585.

    Sounds like you got a good deal, enjoy your new vehicle.

    Just bought a 2008 Mazda 5 Touring with no other option in Stromy Blue in San Jose, CA...
    price = $18,999 + tax, license, doc = out the door almost $21,000
    the car has only 3 mils on it and after my test drove, now, it has 9 miles. ;-)

    I have also purchased the "Mazda Total Care" extended warranty (with ZERO deductiable) for 100,000 miles or 6 years. The GOOD thing is... if I do not use the extended warranty, at the end of the contact, I will get 100% money (the purchase price of the warranty) back. It is stated in the contract. That is the reason I go for it.

    I think I got a good deal, and the dealer are easy to deal with. Put everything up front. will pick up my car tomorrow. (I walked in at 7pm and done with everything by 9pm)

    Purchase date 08/22/08
    Dealer: Lou Fusz Mazda
    Location: St. Louis, MO
    Purchase price: $22,200 + TTL
    Options: Wheel locks (50), pin stripe ($85), nitrogen ($70)
    Color: Galaxy Gray

    - Did not want the pin stripes. The dealer supposedly gave them to us for "free".
    - Had not heard about the nitrogen in tires deal until we drove the Mazda5. Dealer said it would improve tire wear and fuel economy. Can anyone confirm?
    - We wanted other options like cargo net, rear bumper guard & wind deflector but the exact vehicle was too difficult to find. Will most likely purchase after market.
    - Test drove an '08 Touring a few months ago and felt that the Grand Touring was worth the extra $.
    - Overall purchase experience was pain free and pleasant. Became engaged w/ dealer through employer's "corporate discount" program.
    - We fit the demographic for the Mazda5 - husband, wife, 2.5 year old w/ one on the way.

    Happy shopping!

    Purchase Date: 8/27/08
    Dealership: Nelson Mazda Rivergate
    Location: Madison, TN (Just outside Nashville, TN)
    Purchase Price: $21,900 + TTL (ended up out the door $24,000 + change)
    Options: None
    Color: Copper Red Mica

    We had been researching the Mazda 5 for a few weeks and test drove a Silver Touring at this dealership last week. They also had a Copper Red GT, which we loved, but thought it would be out of our price range.
    We got quotes from the Mazda dealerships in our area through the Edmund's TMV request. One dealership had a Galaxy Gray GTand a Black Touring, and they gave us a quote of invoice price on both. The difference between the two was only about $1800, so we figured why not? We called the dealership where we test drove the Silver Touring, but it had already been sold. But they still had the Red GT. We asked if they would match the invoice price of $21,900 that the other dealership gave us and they did. Oh, and they're tinting the windows at cost (approx. $150).
    The dealership had all our paperwork ready for us, we had proof of insurance faxed over to them before we came in, and we were in and out with our new Mazda5 in under 30 minutes. :)
    The dealership staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the experience was a very pleasant one.
    On a related note, we came from a 2003 BMW 325i and are so happy with all the room and features of this car. We have 2 kids (one is 18 months, so still in a carseat), and after stowing a stroller and all the other accoutrements that come with having a baby, the trunk of a BMW leaves something to be desired. We are so excited to have a car with so much space, but doesn't look like the typical minian! :shades:
  • Bought our new white Touring 5 in New Orleans on Tuesday from Paretti Mazda. Started process on internet, the salesman was GREAT! Test drove the 5 and 3 just to get a feel for the difference. The 5 just fits our family better and the white really looks sharp! There were no Touring 5's in Baton Rouge, so New Orleans was the nearest dealership, which is about 60 miles away. Took advantage of the 0% financing, you just cant beat that. Only took off $1000 MSRP, but felt it was worth it and besides the next nearest dealership was another 3 hours away in Alabama. Needed a new car right away. So far so good. It may be just me, but the 5 seems to get alot of looks. :)
  • Been trying to buy a used car for a couple of weeks, no luck with a couple of deals that fell through. My wife wanted to seat 6.

    Woke up yesterday morning, 8/30, my cars newspaper section has a small ad, with a price for a Touring, $18,869. Salesman called us after I sent an email, and I told him I considered the ad to be a real ad. He said yes, it's real.

    Boom, no BS, no add-ons, no problems.

    2008 Copper Red Touring, $18,869, no destination charge, no other charges of any kind other than state required TT and L.

    Zoom! Zoom!

    I just bought an '08 Touring w/ remote engine start, cargo cover, and roof rack for $20,055 in Dayton, OH. I thought that was a great deal, but $18,869--wow, that's incredible. Congrats!

    I used the web to get quotes and to start a bidding war among dealerships. Matt Castrucci Mazda in Dayton was great--fast, friendly, honest, and detail-oriented through the whole process. We wanted the galaxy gray cover, but there weren't any left on the lot. We could've ordered one, but the dealer said he'd knock off $300 if we took one of his lot. Fortunately, my wife really liked the golden sand color once she saw it in person (the car's for her). Depending on the lighting, it either looks gold, tan, pale green, or all the above. People seem to love it or hate that color. So long as my wife's happy, I am, too.

    I think I read every last consumer comment on this car before purchasing, including this forum--thank you everyone for sharing your thoughts. We couldn't be happier with this car.

    In researching what I should pay for an '08 Mazda 5 Touring, I found this web site, which includes a free spreadsheet for figuring what the dealer actually paid for a new car, and what you should pay for it:

    link title

    Eye-opening, and very handy--this assured me that I got a good deal on our purchase. The web site has a lot of useful info on other aspects of the car-buying experience, as well.
  • We bought a 2008 Mazda5 at 17,700 before TTL yesterday with POPULAR EQUIPMENT PACKAGE.
  • Got it for 18000 out of the door with FL taxes on 08/31/08.
  • 2008 Mazda5 Grand Touring
    Stormy Blue
    Wheel nuts, Cargo net, All weather mats, Rear bumper step plate.
    MSRP $23403

    Got it for $21400 + TTL @ 0%APR for 3 years in Newport, Rhode Island.

    Dealer was great to deal with via email. Came in, signed papers and drove off the lot incl test drive in under 45 minutes.
  • Purchase Date: 9/10/2008
    Dealership: Anderson Mazda
    Location: Crystal Lake, IL (near Chicago)
    Year: 2008
    Trim: Touring
    Price: $20,420 (including dest charge) + TTL, and 3.9% financing for 48 months
    MSRP: $21,595 (including dest charge)
    Factory-Installed Accessories: Compass/Auto-dimming mirror
    Color: Stormy Blue

    After having a horrible experience with Schaumburg Mazda, I submitted an Internet request to three other dealerships on Sunday morning. Anderson called me that afternoon and after a 2 minute conversation and call-back in 20 minutes had located a car and quoted me a good price. They sent a spreadsheet showing how they got from MSRP to out the door.

    I submitted a list of 8 accessories that I wanted to purchase at the same time and install myself. MSRP was $530 and they offered to sell them to me at $465, which is slightly over invoice. This sealed the deal. The rest of the process went pretty well with a 2-day wait to dealer trade the vehicle and some waiting during the closing process (mainly at the handoff between sales and finance.)
  • Sorry guys, mine was used.
