  • Thats a great price. I am trying to get one in SF Bay area and I am able to get $22,500 OTD with 0% APR or 21,500 without 0% APR. Is that a good deal. This is the base model.
  • I'm looking for a CX-7 - GT w/nav and a dealer just sent thsi to me "Mazda just added $1250 lease money to their program which would lower payments about $35 a month on the 36 month lease and your first month payment is now waived!"
  • Have the same vehicle- getting 19~20 in town // 22-24 on the road. Don't forget , you are driving a nearly 4000 lb. all wheel drive Mazda.. They aren't , nor are they sold as economy crossovers.
  • Do you get this one? what's the sale tax in your state?
  • Yes. I did get it. Sales Tax in CA is 9.75% looking at the posts, I think I might have paid a little over as I ended up paying 21100 for base model. with 48 months 0 % APR.

    Hi guys I work in a Mazda dealership and has been driving the awd 07, 08, 09 cx-7s for years, Love how the car handles and looks. Don't like the noise, gear box and interior quality. Real world mpg: 2-3 persons drive very carefully on highway, 19-20 mpg. 1 person drive in town, 15-17 mpg. If you want to have some fun then the mpg will be close to 10-12. NEVER achieved more than 22 mpg on highway no matter how I keep the rpm below 3k.

    And keep in mind the CX-9s I've driven for years easily gets 22 mpg on highway.

    the gear box ratio is too high...

    Hi,

    The Best price I am getting so far is $24,900 OTD for Best Price CX-7 Sport w/CP in Southern CA. Is this a good deal?

    Thanks.

    "best price upfront" means "best price for them".
    In my understanding, "best price" should be for them and for you.
    that's why you have to negotiate anyway, if you feel this price is high.

    I test drove RV-4 at the Toyota Bloomington in Minneapolis.
    It was used car with less then 3000 miles.
    When I said what I was going to make the offer, the sales guy proudly told me:
    "Here is one price and we don't take any offers".
    I left without any further conversation.
    One week later he sent me email -- this car now $1000 less.
    What about "one price"?
    we always have to make analiyses, to look around, and to negotiate.
    Period.

    Complaints were filed here in Minnesota about car dealers charging different prices for the same new car model. Now,atleast here in Mpls./St. Paul, most new car franchises have adopted the "one price " strategy for almost all new AND used cars. It is a clever way to make more money and end the "traditional" bargaining sessions made so famous or infamous known throughout the new car dealer landscape.

    Salespeople are now paid on salary and their job survival depends on volume. They have become "automotive information specialists" so to speak--and just simply point to the tag on the windshield when asked about price. I think a dealer trade in is still subject to "negotiation."

    As far as your one week later price "reduction"--just a little dealer "trickery" to get you to buy the car. I bet if you came in to buy that Toyota now--they wouldn't give you $1000 off-probably would offer a "free" extended warranty or "free" oil changes for life--or some "promotion" that equals $1000 in dealer jargon.
  • I found it really frustrated after talking with dealerships. I read those buying tips online for months, and it turn out useless. Those dealerships deliver almost the same price here. For 2010 i sv, OTD is around 22900-23100. I do want to get it below the MSRP (22400 or so).
    I am in Michigan. Anybody think 22900 is a good deal? :confuse:

    Today Mazda gives $1500 rebate on CX7 + $500 for Mazda loyalty -- if you have previous Mazda.
    And you still have to bargain with them -- CX7 is one of the worst cars in CR reviews,
    and these rebates should be at least $3000 if they really want to sell this thing.
  • Hey, what do you mean $1500 rebate? I thought dealers were offering 1,000 in lieu of 0% financing and $500 if current mazda owner.

    Whats the deal with the $1500?
  • Anyone have any suggestions on who to or not to deal with? Wesley Chapel Mazda, Ferman Mazda, etc?

    Ijust got the CX-7 i sport w/ c.p. here in miami...out the door price was 24000 w/ a new tag. Did I do good or was there a better deal out there? I went thru outside financing and got quotes from all the other dealers in the area which is not many. The dealer was nice enough to throw in the tints on the front.

    Hello there. I currently own a 2009 Mazda 3 which I absolutely love so I have been looking at the 2010 CX7 for some more room. I'm a little turned off by the recommended premium fuel on the turbo model. I test drove the 2008 turbo engine and it was a blast to drive so I hope this year is just as fun. But my question is do you think I will damage the engine if I fill up this car with regular fuel. I know I will get better performance with the premium but as long as I do no damage, I am fine with the regular. I mean geez, this car already is pretty peppy with that turbo. I have seen friends put regular fuel on a premium recommended car and their cars are just fine but not sure how different it is with a turbo. I plan to have this new CX7 for like 8 years or so, so I wanna take care of it. Let me know what you guys think? Thanks.

    i would be real careful putting 87 on that model. We have had 2 turbo cars in our family.
    1992 mr-2 and 97 gsx eclipse. There is no way we would put <91 octane. It tends to lag. Dont know abt long term since we never went that route. But look into the naturally aspirated model. We've put in 1k miles on it already and havent had any issues with it. If you are someone that needs to be going and out of lanes and has to merge a lot into the highway then turbo is the way to go but if you can spare 5 extra seconds for the car to pick up then non turbo is an option. Also I have played w/ the manual tranny and have found that if you lower the gears the motor does come to live. good luck on your purchase...

    This topic has been discussed endlessly. The fact is, since 2008 the turbo was tweaked (ECU and cat) to permit operation on regular gas, with reduced performance. The non-turbo version was introduced because dealers squawked about the poor mileage numbers. If you want the turbo's kick in the pants, then the small price differential on the fuel shouldn't put you out.

    I'm about ready to purchase a 2010 CX-7 GT AWD and would like some information as to what I can expect price wise in the NJ, NY and Conn area. I've looked at Truecar andEdmunds but have seen prices stated here lower than what Truecar and Edmunds says. Is there going to be any advantage in waiting until August?(incentives, 0% loans) Is a price of under $30,000.00 without TTL a reasonable expectation. Thanks for your help.

    I am having issues with my 08 CX7 - had the timing belt and serpantine belt replaced at 57K - motor mount on 60K - at 62500K turbo died...Mazda EXPP (i have coverage up to 100K) denied the claim because of sludge siting i did not change the oil enough or follow maintanence schedule...i supplied the info for when serviced outside of the dealer and followed the 7500K schedule....I am out $2500 for repairs and i'm concerned if the engine goes next that they will not repair....are you have ing any similar issues with consumers on any of the Mazda's? I see 100's of blogs regarding loss of turbo or engine and the EXPP is denying payments...what do you suggest...? do you have amechanic that can offer some insight to help me prevent future issues...help please tks

    I'm looking for a 2010 cx-7 AWD touring. The truecar dealer that is closest to us shows up on the truecar list of 3 dealers, but there is no price, instead it says 'this dealer will provide your price'. I contacted them today and they said their price is calculated by subtracting any dealer incentives ($1500) from the invoice and then adding in a profit of $600. He said they can't discount the car by the $414 holdback because they might not get that money, he said their truecar price was $28,761. The other two truecar dealers listed offer the car for $26,661. On truecar, MSRP is $30,615, Factory Invoice $28,761, and dealer cost $26846.

    Have any of you ever seen a truecar dealer displayed without them listing a price?
    How can two dealers offer this car for $26,661 when dealer cost is $26846?
    Is it even worthwhile to try to use this service to negotiate price?

    I own a Mazda CX7 2008 GT AWD.
    1. I've driven 49k miles in 3 yrs. I put 87 octane, what ever is cheap, no specific brand of gasoline either. I was told I can put regular gas by dealer in NYC / Long Island when I bought my car. I bought my car Dec 2008 for invoice price at that time.
    2. I love the turbo, oh did I mention I own a Honda CRV 2007 LX? Now if you want to know about borrrringggg, I can tell you how my crv drives...
    get the cx 7 with the turbo engine, you will have fun.
  • Has your Mazda Cx-7 been as reliable over the last 50,000 miles as the Honda CRV ? Obviously the Mazda with 250 HP will blow the doors off the Honda, but how has the reliability been on both cars?

    I have 62,000 miles on my 2003 CX-7 GT. Only problem was the AC which blew out last spring and was covered by recall. I have NEVER used anything but 92-93 octane gas. My #1 complaint is that it has a wimpy AC system. Gas mileage = 21 due largely to the fact that 60% of my driving is hiway. It's been a great car. :)

    I bought a 2008 GT AWD out the door with the standard options for 29,500.
    includes tax, title and registration.
    You should get a better deal because there is not a large demand for the car.
    Gotta say I love my Zoom Zoom
  • Just paid $20,900 with zero % financing and 4 year extended warranty for $700, plus they gave me high book for my 2005 Envoy XUV that I could not sell myself! I was totally happy with my experience at the Mazda dealer in Anchorage. If you send anyone to that dealer and they buy AND mention your name, Mazda pays you $250 minimum towards a one month car payment! In fact when I bought I used my friends name and her payment is only $199 but she got the $250 credit! I am so sold on the CX7 and this dealership that I will be back. I love my CX7 :) :P :blush:
  • ...now I just need 48 friends to buy a new Mazda and mention my name and my CX7 is paid for! ;)
  • Most dealers' prices are way below Truecar.com pricing that I am not sure what is really the lowest price on this vehicle. I'm looking at a 11 CX-7 iSport FWD with the convenience package and fog lights. MSRP 25745. My pricing has been around $21695. I'm in Chicago so hope someone can chime in. Thanks in advance.
