    Hi - Can you please advise as to which dealerships in tri=state region quoted the best prices? I started a search today, and any insight is greatly appreciated

    one NJ dealer is offering the following (before TTL):
    My 2010 CX-9 Grand Touring AWD MSRP $34,215
    VIN: JM3TB3MV2A0224300
    Destination Fee $750
    273-hp 3.7L DOHC 24-valve V6 Standard
    6-Speed Auto Standard
    Colors
    Exterior: DOLPHIN GRAY MICA

    there are much better deals based on some of the earlier posts

    I also am in Houston in the market for a similar CX 9 - which dealership did you go to?

    I checked with dealers in NY, Conn, and Mass. The lowest offer was 300 under invoice, 0%. However, they came in 1500 low on my trade. The closest other dealer was in the same ball park. Regarding the TMV figure, the closest I am able to get to is about 1500 more. What gives?

    Well, first, we all assume that customers are 100% truthful when posting what they purchased a car for. Second, it depends on the region and how popular a specific vehicle is in that region.

    You live in the North East where the CX-9 is most popular and dealers are not overloaded in stock. Infact, inventory is a little low. There is no reason for a dealer to panic and blow CX-9's out because the reality is they will sell rather easily.

    I am a CT dealer and $300 under invoice on a CX-9 plus 0% financing is a good deal, for this region. If you feel it is not, then don't buy and try and wait it out for a better offer. You are well within your right to pass and try and negotiate a better deal!

    Clearlake & Conore dealer quotes were best.

    I checked with Dabury and Stamford dealers in CT and other nearby dealers in NY.

    I do feel it is a fair deal for the price of the CX-9, but I do not think it is a fair price for my trade. Edmunds, KBB state 6k private trade, 4.5k trade in. The dealer above offered 3k and then wouldn't budge. Regarding everything I've read something is out of kilter here.

    I like to think I am a reasonable, trustworthy person. I don't begrudge anyone making a decent living. However, if I feel I'm being taken advantage of, which I do in this case, I doubt I'll ever return.

    Judging by the value they are giving you, I presume you own an older model car with higher miles? If that is the case, the dealer is most likley going to wholesale the car and wholesalers laugh at KBB and Edmunds trade values because they are essentially worthless. Black Book and Galves are the standard by which cars are valued for the most part. Ask to see the source they are using to asses your car.

    In most cases, dealers will pay up for trades if they can profit from them and make a new car customer at the same time. I know if a customer is going to trade a car to me that I can retail, I will always try and meet their demands. However, I'm not going to give someone $3,000 for a car that I can only get $2,000 for from a wholesaler. It's not good business.

    The most important thing is to feel good about your purchase. If you are not happy with the terms, then don't buy. If you are happy, then sign away and call it a day!

    Thanks for the insight aviboy97. I'm thinking on selling my car privately. I didn't want the hassle but I figure it is probably worth it.

    We may wait for the 2011's at this point.

    There is still no official information regarding the 2011 CX-9's just yet. Keep in mind, the probability of 0% being offered in very low if there are still remaining 2010's left. It is a crap shoot.

    Buying a car is tough. Not just because of the negotiation process, but, because there are a lot of cars to choose from and many variables that can effect your decision.

    I buy goods when I feel I am getting a good deal. Whether it's a TV, car or furniture, I really would not know what a "great deal" was if it smacked me in the face. I buy if I feel I am comfortable with the purchase price as well as the product I am buying. If my wife likes it, it make my life that much happier! I'm sure you know how that goes.

    I just traded in my Volvo XC 90 for a Grand Touring CX 9 and I love my new CX 9. In my opinion and for the money...the CX 9 is the best deal on the road. I am amazed that I have found a truck that not only looks and drives the same as the Volvo but has a dozen extra features plus a lower monthly payment. If your in the market for a SUV with a third row and every feature/gadget available on the market today...the Mazda CX 9 is the perfect SUV for you! As an added bonus...the dealership customer service and sales experience far surpassed the experiences that I have had in the past at the Volvo, Infiniti, and BMW in the South Florida area. I bought my CX 9 from Gunther Mazda in South Florida. They were GREAT!

  • Why is it that the invoice price the dealer shows you is generally about $400 higher than the invoice price edmunds gives you? They generally say "those websites are inaccurate". Have others experienced this?

    The additional $400 you are seeing is the regional assessment charge which is Mazda's advertising fee billed to the car. The charge varies depending on the market you live in, hence why Edmunds does not track it.

    Edmunds does state they do not track such fee and it is actually billed to the dealer. Go back to the pricing section and start to price the CX-9 again. You will see a blue link titled "advertising fees", click on it to see Edmunds disclaimer on why they do not track such charges.
  • OK, thanks I missed that. I guess I should be adding that to the TMV price as well. I see about $800 diff between the Invoice and TMV. How close to TMV can I hope to get with the 0% deal?

    Thanks J.
