    Hello all,

    Finally decided to get the M5 and super excited about it. I actually have blue one on order since our dealer could not find any even with dealer trade. Anyways, here is the deal (not final yet) but Auto Sport for 17,098 + tax and licensing in Seattle/Everett Washington area. This price also comes with 100,000 mile powertrain warranty. Should I go for it? I know there was another Seattleite posting for a GT at around 19,750 + tax and licensing so this seems reasonable for a sport. Comments please. Thanks guys and gals

  • I made a cash deal last week on a Mazda 5 sport with manual and no options for $16.5k OTD. Our local tax is 6% and that is included in the price. Your tinted windows are worth about $200.

    Good luck though, the price has gone up significantly this week because of C4C.

  • I believe the $1750 dealer cash on the Mazda5 ran out today. Anybody know what the new "deal" is yet?

    TIA

    I did ask my dealer about this since we too noticed the expiration date, but he said that on the 09 it will probably continue if not get better, but I guess we will see. 09 are pretty sparse it seems

    Mazda5 July 09 sales up 45% over July 08. Looks like supplies of 09 5's is sparse. I'm glad I got mine on 7/25/09. For those shopping in NJ try Hamilton, very good dealer. Avoid Maple Shade, dishonest but I don't want to get into details now.

    We bought a Mazda 5 sport today at Romero Mazda in Ontario, CA through the clunker program and the dealer was still getting $1750 marketing support. They were willing to work with us to get a discount of $900 below invoice, plus the extra $500 added to the clunker $4500. Very satisfied.

  • Congrats Kurt, Romero Mazda is an awesome dealer. I have had nothing but pleasant experiences with them in parts and service department. Dan Trimmer in service and Erick in parts.
  • Got home a couple days back with our new '09 Mazda5 AT Sport, with the Performance Package (spoiler + 6 cd changer). Left the dealership (Bommarito Mazda West County in St. Louis) with an OTD price of $11636! (with $5000 CFC cash). Very happy with the price and the experience.

    I'm definitely glad we acted when we did as it seems that all the online specials & pricing around here have vanished. I wouldn't be surprised if dealers are less inclined to negotiate with the huge surge of CFC buyers.

    I've been working the phones and the web here in the Twin Cities, and you have a better chance of seeing Bigfoot than of seeing a new Mazda5 of any type. Twice I have had leads of cars that will be arriving, and twice someone else has put a deposit down before I could get to a dealer. Congratulations if you bought a 5 the last week or two of July. You had some options to choose from, and you most likely got a much better deal than anyone else will get for the foreseeable future.

    Dealers are asking for 18000/- + tax and license in bayarea. Is this a good deal.
  • Paid 22900 for a GT with Nav. in MD.

    I was the guy that got the GT for $19750 at Seattle's University Mazda.
    I originally went in for the Sport AT for $16600 but changed my mind when I saw the GT. I wanted the leather seat so the GT at $19750 was worth it.

    The dealer also offered me $1400 for 10 years / 120k milesage full coverge warranty (not just powertrain) with zero deductible. I thought it was a good deal but still thinking about whether I should get extended warranty since most Mazda are very reliable these days. What do you guys think?
  • lyzardolyzardo Posts: 12
    Success - maybe. I scored the last base Sport AT they had at Polar Mazda here in the eastern Twin Cities. Supposed to arrive just after Labor Day. EXCELLENT people to work with. Price was 12477 + T&L. Not too bad - good enough considering their scarcity. The catch: I'm now playing chicken with the CARS program. I have to hope that the program runs through Labor Day so the paperwork can get submitted before the program ends. Crossing my fingers...

    This is exclusive of any offer or incentives for a Sport Model with auto tranny in white. Just wondering if this is a good price?
  • lyzardolyzardo Posts: 12
    Just bought a Sport AT (only option was the compass rear-view mirror) and paid about $17,900. Included $1750 Mazda cash and what amounted to a $400 Costco Auto Program bonus. So without Costco, that's pretty close to what I just got. White is a bit more costly, so that evens out the rear-view mirror, most likely.

    With CARS program factored in, cost was about $12,075 +T&L.

    When did you buy this? The only incentive now is $500 on top of a C4C rebate. Did you purchase this in July?
  • ldislerldisler Posts: 82
    Is that out the door?
    I bought a Touring for $17900 including $1750 cash rebate
    & $500 CFC rebate. I would think a Sport should be under $17000. Although I
    think stock is getting slim. I'm in Central Jersey and bought on 7/25/09.

    Purchased this week. $1750 cash was listed (and explained) as being part of the deal.

    I've been seriously looking since the weekend of July 25/26. There was a big difference between (roughly) pre 7/27 deals and post 7/27 deals on the M5. The car has been scarce, and deals have been hard to come by. Supply and demand has kicked in.

    I'm guessing there are a lot of dealers out there kicking themselves that they went as low as they did pre July 27 - they simply didn't expect the huge run on cars during the first week of the CARS program.

    If you got in early, you scored in a big way. I'm just happy to have found an M5 to buy that was selling at a moderately decent price.
  • Awesome, glad you were able to find one. Did you get a chance to take one out for a test drive?
  • d1ganjed1ganje Posts: 3
    Yeah, we got a Sport AT after too and paid 17720 with the Pep, review mirror and fog lights. Considering their scarcity, we thought that was pretty good. It is crazy how the price has gone up.
  • ldislerldisler Posts: 82
    I'm glad I got mine on 7/25 right as the mad rush started. Inventory seems
    to be low now.
  • lyzardolyzardo Posts: 12
    Funny - I have not been able to drive one. My wife drove a 2006 last week just to get the feel for them and gave it a thumbs up. I've only had a chance to look at one - haven't even sat in one yet.

    We got Blue Sport AT at University Mazda in Seattle for $17.3K - right off the ship. Most of local dealers are out of stock completely. They don't yet take orders on 2010... Good luck to those who're on the hunt.

    Was looking two weeks ago and sent email requests for out-the-door prices (recommended by these forums) to about 6 dealers. I was trading in my 2000 MPV (157K miles) as Cash for Clunkers. Got a good price from Tully Mazda in NH ($11,653 + TTL + all-weather mats + rear bumper plate), but since that was a hike, waited to get more prices. Nobody else really gave me a good price. Friday morning I called and the car was gone. There were questions whether CfC would get more money, plus MA tax rate was going up, plus the $1750 Mazda rebate was ending, so I wanted to do it. More calls during Friday and found only one available 60 miles away. The dealer said that he had a customer willing to pay $12,900 for it, so that was it.
    The next week Congress gives another $2B and I'm back in the market. I check Mazda inventory within 50 miles on the website and there are 10 with manual shift. This past Friday I send some emails back to the dealerships again. This time I get a response from Ira Mazda (20 miles away) with an OTD price of $18,160. I respond back that I'm doing CfC, so I subtract the $4500 + $500 from Mazda, plus the difference in Sales Tax, and it is less than $12,000, which I think is pretty good since I thought the $1750 went away. I send him my figures and he agrees. I'm waiting to see if more dealers respond. I talk to a different NH dealer (Werner Mazda) who had 2 available, but he wants $500 over list because he says the list price is going up for the 2010's so he feels he can get the increase early. I told him I was not interested because I already got a much better price. Wellesley Mazda is the closest, but they want $17,000 + $444 doc fees (ignoring the CfC component). I'm getting antsy because I don't want to lose the Ira car too, so the next day I drive up and end up getting it. The deal was even better because I (and the internet guy) didn't know about the $150 you get for the salvage value of the clunker. It ended up being right around $11,670 + TTL. The salesman was busy but he was good. I'd recommend them.
    Just picked it up today, after the dealer got the authorization for CfC. Since I am transferring plates, I still have to go back one more time to pick up the registration and sticker (and for them to install the bumper step plate since it had to be ordered). Checked the Mazda inventory website again, and it still shows 10 available Manual Shift, so I don't know how accurate it is. (Hope this message wasn't too wordy)

    1 month ago there were 70 mazda 5's whitin 50 miles of me. Today there are 11. I'd say Mazda sold a lot of 5's with the Cash For Clunkers.
    If your want one now your going to need good luck to find the one you want. I can't imagine dealers are going to be making very good deals.
  • A Boston area dealer has said to me in an email that the 1750 rebate is still going on, but I can't verify that at all through edmunds.com or any other website. Any thoughts?
  • pi_manpi_man Posts: 9
    If you look at CarsDirect for the Sport Manual, it shows MSRP at $18,775, invoice at $17,715, and their Target Price at $16,565 which includes under Incentives "Special Pricing - Expires 8/31/09". This was the same price I saw at the very beginning of this month. Whereas around 8/7 their Target Price was $18,315. So to me this looks like the $1750 is in place, at least in the Boston area.
  • Thanks!
    Looking to buy a 09 mazda 5 automatic by the end of the month, dealer inventory is basically non existent, but some dealers have some mazda5s on the way. The dealer in wellesley is the closest one along with the one in quincy as well.
