Mazda CX-7 Prices Paid and Buying Experiences

Share your order, pricing and buying experiences here.


  • Just reserved my CX-7. The dealer had to change the order to upgrade from the moonroof package to the technology package. The production date is listed as end of March which means I probably will see my Black Cherry Mica AWD Grand Touring w/Sand Leather interior and Technology package in the April/May timeframe.

    I'm jealous!

    Good luck with it.
  • Thanks!

    Now that I've done it, I'm a little relieved that I got what I wanted at a good price, and a little nervous since there aren't even any test drives or first looks to read yet.

    It's also still a LONG wait till it even gets built, much less arrives.

    Are they knocking any off the sticker price?
  • I contacted several dealerships and got prices of $200 over invoice, $500 over invoice, $1000 under MSRP, $500 under MSRP, and MSRP. To get the color and trim I wanted, however, I ended up going out of my immediate area (about 100 miles away), but got an even better deal -- invoice.

    So what is invoice anyhow? like arouund $2000 under retail?

  • For pricing w/options, check out Kelly Blue Book.

    It looks like for the base, MSRP is about $1600 over invoice. Then the gap will go up depending upon what options you pick.
  • Thanks, it is possible to test drive the CX-7 already?

    I would like to reserve one but not before driving one...

    Not yet. They are not due here until late March, early April. My guess is they won't be here until late April, early May.

  • I ordered mine end of December, with the similar tech package, Grand Touring, in the Copper-Red!! I'm be letting go of my 02 Milli S, which I love, but this is going to be a great ride!!! This will be my 6th Mazda in 5 years! My kids drive 626's, and my wife drives an 05 Tribute S. Love the product line, and never had a problem. I'm not at all worried about the turbo. Everyone needs to keep in mind a couple of things, this engine has been out awhile, in the speed6. They've put a better intercooled turbo on it, and one of the most important things is that it's made in Japan! I've owned 2 Milli's. One was an 02 Milli P product built here, the other was the 02 Milli S, built in Japan, what a difference! Trust me, I've owned and driven both, and the are very, very different cars!! The Japanese product is far superior!! :D

    I would not say the MS6 has been out that long, only here since late November, early December.

    Where did you hear about a better intercooled turbo?
  • "One was an 02 Milli P product built here, the other was the 02 Milli S, built in Japan, what a difference!"
    I believe that all Mazda Millenias were built in Japan regardless of the production year. Mazda uses more robots in their plants in Japan than in the US. I think this explains the difference in perceived product quality. Here is a link to a Mazda site showing a mazda6 (Atenza) in production. :)
  • Sorry about that, but I still have the window stickers for both cars, and the P was built here and the S was built in Japan...they will only make two products this year that are shipped to the US, the RX and the CX. All other products are produced here in the US.
  • The only Mazdas built in the US are the Truck, Mazda6 and the Tribute. All others plus the Mazdaspeed 6 are made in Japan. The 626 and the MX-6 were the only other Mazdas made here in the US.

    My Mazda3 was made in Japan.

    Checking to see if anyone has bought this vehicle in the Washington DC area?

    Please share your experience including dealer name and price.

    As of today vehicles are not on sale yet. Have been told by my dealer in LA that sales start next week.
  • aviboy97aviboy97 Posts: 3,159
    Ours should be here next week as well. I have had 2 rental agencies call me from Miami, FL looking to buy all of our CX-7's at discounted prices. HA!
  • audia8qaudia8q Posts: 3,138

    not true...Mazda is doing a pre-sale of the CX-7. Info can be found on We have several deposit's already....subject to test drives of course.
  • audia8qaudia8q Posts: 3,138 cautious. Brokers are all over trying to buy CX-7's for export. This violates Mazda's dealer agreements and the sales will be rejected and future allocation gets put in jeopardy.
  • zoom49zoom49 Posts: 76
    Yes I've had a CX-7 on order since Nov 2005, My pre order should arrive at dealer the last week of this month.
    As of today there are still no dealers with cars in physical inventory to sell. :(
  • audia8qaudia8q Posts: 3,138
    The boats have arrived in the US filled with CX-7's.....Mazda will process them and start to ship to dealers in a week or so. They are trying to get at least one to every dealer in the initial shipments.

    Just got back from my dealer..My current Tribute lease is due back next week!!
    Anyway, no CX7's in, but on the way.. As I was with the salesman, the Mgr came over and said he just got the leasing programs in onthe CX7..........


    He said the current lease program was for 24 mos.....3000+ down, and a monthly price around 440.00..(W/O taxes)

    YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING I said!! He said NO, that is what is currently onboard from Mazda

    Oh well, after waiting patientlt, it looks like we WILL NOT be in a CX7!!
    NO WAY I will pay those prices..

    Looks like the wife will have to settle on either :
    Mercury Mariner
    Pontiac Torrent
    Suburu Tribeca (though not really in running)

    Any thoughts on any of this...Including second choices!!
  • audia8qaudia8q Posts: 3,138
    Got word that Mazda started shipping the CX-7 to dealers today!!!
  • lilarrylilarry Posts: 13
    You do not mention which level CX-7, how many miles the lease covers, what the lease-end buyout price is, or whether you are in US or Canada. At first glance, without crunching any numbers, assuming 12k miles per year for a fully loaded CX-7 in US Dollars ($32-$34k sticker) the price does not seem too out of line to me, although it does not seem especially great.

    Also remember - interest rates are up, which will affect all leases.
  • guyfguyf Posts: 456
    Local dealer in Quebec City is advertizing he has a CX-7 on his lot.
  • rogueangelrogueangel Posts: 6
    This was a prliminary quote in the Northeast..specifically NJ.
    I don't believe they truly know all the numbers, since most dealers couldn't even talk pricing..
    According to the Mazda site, they have a lease incentive of 3500 down and 299 mos..For the entry level I believe..

    :cry: Unfortunately for me the 400 mark is WAYYY outta my need and league at this point..

    If they start selling these at a price OVER list, forget about it.. :mad:

    My time is cruching vehicle is due back the 31 of this month, so we need to SERIOUSLY consider other options..

    Like I said the choices narrow to: Tribeca Ltd; Torrent ; Mercury Mariner.....
    OH WELL!! :sick:
  • aviboy97aviboy97 Posts: 3,159
    It may have been the same person to call, but, he said they were a leasing company in Miami, FL. We want no part of that.

    Hi everyone,

    Here's a pic of the CX-7 we received today from Mazda.

    This is one of the freebies we were sent for being one of the First Choice program buyers. Our real one is due at the Dealer within two weeks."
