  • JC, you bring up some good points, despite the nomenclature there are really way more differences between the Touring and GT than the Touring and Sport. Honestly we were going for the Sport, but with a baby and Labrador we have found that leather is easier to keep clean. That is really the only substantial difference between Tour/Spt, you can get the power heated seat/mirror in a package on the Sport and then you are pretty close to having the same equipment.

    I have to come clean and say that the GT we looked at was used from Carmax and the guy didn't know how it all worked (never got the tailgate to power open) so I am afraid that first impression sort of stuck with me. Wife thought the 20" ride was too firm, which is probably the most consistent comment that I have seen in the reviews of the GT.

    We actually picked up a Touring last night: AWD Bose/Moon White Pearl with the Sand Leather. We had to drive up to Milwaukee, but it was what we wanted. Invoice 33600-4K rebate -1K loyalty so 28600. Seems like a good deal where the sticker was 36025 and there were very few White Touring AWD in the area so we wanted to act before they were gone or we had to drive even further.

    There are actually a couple things that would be nice to have as an option that are only on the GT and that is the memory seats and the Blind spot monitor would be nice. I also don't understand, and this may just be a rant against foreign cars in general, but why can they not make auto on off headlights standard ?(GT only). Not sure if this is just a preference in the US, but funny how most GM cars from the late 90s (Beretta, Grand Prix, Alero we have owned) have had these.

    This may have been covered else where, but from the literature the CX-9 headlights for Sport=Manual/Touring=Auto Off/ GT=Auto off&on seems like it would be more cost effective to be uniform for this sort of thing, but hey I don't make cars for a living so I am sure there is a reason.

    I wish luck to everyone out there looking. I appreciate the feedback from this forum and hope everyone finds what they are looking for.....
  • Just wanted to make sure I understand what I've been reading ... there is a $4000 dealer incentive, and that is in addition to the $1500 customer cash? I don't want to sound like I'm smoking crack when I walk into the dealer... What I'm looking at is a CX-9 Touring FWD with MSRP of $31,715 and invoice per Edmunds of $29,349. Incentives of $4000 and $1500, then add back $750 destination, plus $172 for the Crystal White Pearl paint bringing the total to $24771. Does that sound about right???

    Only things I'd add are Remote Engine Start and burglar alarm options.

    In my case there was only a $1500 mfr rebate
    no REBATE of $4000 (it was a $3500 for a CLUNKER plus $500 from the dealer for bringing in a clunker)
    however, there was a mazda loyalty incentive (I think for $1000) as well but that did not apply to me

    when i was shopping (~5 weeks ago) it was $4000 dealer cash OR $1500 (plus 0% financing). you could not do both. basically if you could secure your own financing or could buy cash, it was a better deal to do the $4000. if you wanted to go through Mazda (Chase) for financing, take the $1500 and 0% for 36 months. The $1000 loyalty can be extra to both deals. Additionally, cash for clunkers can be additional to both deals (assuming you can justify getting this pretty poor fuel economic vehicle called the CX-9 under that program =) heh heh).
    i am not sure the dealer cash is still around....it seems pretty spotty now whether dealers will offer it. personally, i am quite glad i bought mine last month when the deals where pretty ubiquitous and i got the exact color/features i wanted.

    100% in agreement. Not a spec of buyers remorse here. Very happy I worked something out in July.
  • Interesting, talked to CarsDirect and they mentioned $4000 incentive, but that you cannot get 2.9% for 60 months with that.

    Indeed, on the CarsDirect site, the Touring FWD in White goes for $27240, including destination, in Southern CA. I'm thinking of taking the CarsDirect printout to the dealer and telling them they have a deal if they take $27000.

    Opinions?
  • jcpharmjcpharm Posts: 92
    that is consistent with what we said: you cannot get the promotional financing rates with the $4k dealer cash...they are mutually exclusive. however, that doesn't prevent you from going down to your local bank and getting a 2.9% loan and taking the $4k discount there.

    My experience with CarsDirect is that you can probably do better than $500-1000 under their price....i used that exact same tactic as you (walked in with CarsDirect printout in hand) to buy my 2005 Murano. i got a good deal...but not a great deal. having said all that, if you are going to get the CX-9 regardless and you found what you are looking for, don't lose out on it over a few hundred bucks when, in the big picture, you are saving thousands.....IMHO.

    This car looks so sharp. Picked it up on Sunday. it is a silver Grandtouring, Navi, Moonroof, Tow pkg, Dockable entertainment system, Roof rack, Cargo mat, Cargo net. Sticker was $41100.00. Got it for invoice less $4000, less $3500(clunker), less $500. Purchase price was $29600 + TTL. A few dealers closer to me here in orange county would not give me the same deal and they all told me that once I get there, they won't honor the deal. It went very smooth with no problems and the internet/fleet manager was very nice and professional. Good luck with your purchase everyone.
  • Picked up our new White CX-9 Touring with Sand interior last night. There were very few of these available in So. Cal., I think less than 10. I think we got a fairly good deal. MSRP was $32665 and we got the $4000 off and ended up paying $27200 + TTL. On a side note, what a great looking car! Very smooth ride, excellent interior.

    Does anyone have the Remote Engine Start option? What do you think of it, and how much was it to have it installed? The sales guy actually discouraged us from this option, saying it was a waste, and expensive to install. When does a dealer ever discourage you getting options on a car???

    One other question ... can anyone provide opinions on the Mazda maintenance plan (3 years/$695) and the Mazda extended warranty (7 yrs/60,000 mi/$1350 dealer cost). Would folks recommend getting these? Finance guy said we could add when we secure our financing if we want at those prices listed above. Hard decision, owner input welcome.

    When we bought our CX9 in July, I also asked about having the Mazda factory remote start installed by the dealer. I was told that it was not a very good system and didn't integrate well with the car. Like you, I figured if the dealer said that, it must not be worth spending the money on it. I can do without it, just thought it would be neat to have. I'm sure others have it and have had no problems with it - probably just a matter of opinion and preference in terms of how the thing works.

    As far as the warranty goes, as much as I hate them, I plan on eventually getting an authentic Mazda extended warranty because my wife tends to put lots of miles on her car. I'm more concerned about the electronics and computer system stuff than the mechanical/engine components. I'll probably wait until early next year. You can get one any time up until your factory warranty expires, or shortly before that time/mileage. If you look online, you can find a 6 yr / 100k mile official mazda warranty for around $1700 ($100 deduct plan). My plan is to solicit the local dealers for quotes, using the on-line price as a negotiating tool.
  • Just started shopping and have been offered this already, which SEEMS pretty good:

    CX-9 Touring FWD
    Bose/Moonroof package
    MSRP of $34,425

    The offer is $6,000 off of MSRP for a total of $28,425+TT&L. What do you guys think? i would be perfectly fine with a Sport model, but I'm a sucker for leather interior.
  • Got a quote for 29.2 +ttl in NJ
    for CX9 touring awd ,bose,leather,moonroof.

    sounds like a good one?

    Thanks!

    Got a CX9 GT FWD with GT assist, Moonroof Bose, Towing pkg and Roof racks yesterday, from a bay area dealer yesterday. Nice Car. The MSRP is $39510....got it for $32300... did all the peice negotiations by email...

    Cheers
  • Sounds pretty good to me. I was pretty happy with $5500 or so off MSRP on my CX-9 Touring FWD, so it looks like you are doing pretty well with $6K off on your AWD.
  • talon90talon90 Posts: 10
    Was that price $32,300 OTD or still + TTL?
  • zoomguyzoomguy Posts: 4
    32300 + TTL of course.... and you don't want to know how much tax we pay here ... :-(
  • valcvalc Posts: 1
    that sounds like the deal I just got. I bought a cx9 GT
    fwd ,bose moonroof,GT assist, towing, that sounds just like the one you bought price and everything. I also live in the bay area. You are right about the tax bad news. I could have bought another car:) but mine out the door was just over 31,000 I had a cash for clunker. so far love the car. Happy shopping everyone.
  • this sounds great. where? my experience last month was that there were no cars in north jersey, and there were no good deals to be had.
  • Your deal is very similar to ours. We just picked up a blue CX-9 Touring FWD with Moonroof/Bose, Roof rack, homelink/compass mirror for $28,604+TTL in WI. We didn't do cash for clunkers because our trade is worth $7K, but got $4K Mazda incentive.
  • I wasn't aware of the $4K Mazda incentive. I thought all they offered at this point was $1500 or 2.9% financing?
