    We ordered a CX-9 the day the order form became available to our dealer back in October. We anticipate delivery sometime in the next 3-4 weeks here in NE Ohio at Fred Vincent Mazda/VW. I don't know if it's because we also bought another car from them but our initial deal was $1K over invoice. When the PLG became a late intro, they offered to reduce the price by $500 (which includes the price of the PLG.) Therefore, we're paying about $800 over invoice and they're throwing in the $100 Mazda all-weather floor mats. Call it net $700 over invoice.

    I'm relatively happy with the deal for our fairly loaded GT CX-9. I can't wait to give you our initial reaction to the vehicle...which we've never seen!

  • CX-9 Touring with Moonroof and Bose. MSRP $33490.00 and purchase price of $31,355.54. First CX-9 sold at Bill Hood Mazda in Hammond, La. :shades:

    Seems like Mazda is dealing. I wonder why all the $$'s of MSRP on a new vehicle?
  • Local dealer newspaper ad - CX-9 Sport model - $4021 off MSRP but caution, I think this is tied into a high pct finance package - seeking out the fine print!!!
  • I have a local deal for $2600 off MSRP of $35030. I had another deal at $3046 off, but dealer claimed they would honor that price on that one vehicle but not on searching out the one I want. The $3046 was off the exact one I want but it had the rear entertainment and I wanted the sunroof instead.

    srinaldi - what trim did you pick to get that price? Touring or Grand Touring with what options?

    I would like some feed back from the owners of the CX-9. Looking at the CX-9 I love everything except the fuel mileage. Is the mileage quote only 16-22?
    Thanks :confuse:

    The trim was a Grand Touring with the Bose and sunroof package. I picked it up last night for what the dealer claims $200 under invoice. They wanted the business since Feb was a very slow month for them.

    can you do me a favor
    Take a look under your cx-9 and look to see if you have a cover (skirt, plastic thing) under the engine.

    On mine it looks like there are fastener points there but no cover

    let me know
  • Has anyone purchased or started negotiating for a CX-9 in the Boston area?

    If so, what dealers have you spoken with and what prices have you heard?

    I am looking for a CX-9 Grand Touring AWD with the ASSISTANCE PACKAGE (with power open and close rear hatch) and MOONROOF/BOSE/6 CD PACKAGE.

    Thank you...
  • srinaldisrinaldi Posts: 22
    There isn't a cover for the engine, but there is a small cover up towards the front of the motor covering what should be the radiator area.

    thanks srinaldi

    same as mine. went to the dealer to pick up my plates yesterday and peaked under a couple of CX-9s and I guess there is not a cover

    thanks again

    Talked to our local dealer yesterday and test drove the CX-9 GT AWD. He said that Mazda was being aggressive about marketing early, to get cars out on the road. Thus, the deals (purchase and lease). You should be able to get within $500 of invoice EASILY (and probably better) and they are offering some nice lease programs.

    The car drove very well. I did not find the 20's too harsh, but I drive a BMW X3, so perhaps I am used to the harsh drive. The handling, for a car that big, was very good. Acceleration was acceptable, not outstanding. Cargo room, third row, and access to third row were good (as advertised), although you need to move the second row up for a six footer (like me) to be comfortable enough in the third row. The interior was surprisingly nice, with the two tone sand/black color scheme.

    I also drove an Acadia- definitely more cargo room, and a bit more comfortable in the third row, but handling, while pretty good, wasn't as good as the Mazda. And, the GMC interior was not quite as nice. Also, GMC was not as willing to deal on the price as Mazda.

    All in all, the Mazda was more enjoyable, but the Acadia more functional (with the room) to serve in the place of a minivan.

    Now, let's see that the wife likes...

    I actually wanted real life numbers. but thanks away. I test drove one on Friday and it had a "Stiff" ride. I think I'm going to go with the Acura RDX. It's going to fit my needs
  • How long, in general, from filling out the order form to final delivery? I know that the CX-9's are built in Japan, so it is a bit longer than for cars built in North America.

    We test drove the CX-9 last weekend and are going to buy one, but none of the dealers in the area has the features we want (either they're too loaded or don't have enough), so we're going to place an order for what we really want. Just curious as to the typical delivery times.

  • srinaldisrinaldi Posts: 22
    My dealer did a locate and found what we wanted and had it within 2 days. I could have ordered which I think was around 2-3 months or do a dealer locate.

    If the dealer can't or won't change an order that is already in the system your looking at apx 4 months depending on your location. For orders going in this month your looking at may/june production and depending on your location the CX will spend 3-8 weeks on the boat....
  • thanks for the quick response. Looks like I might be waiting a while - I can't find any GT FWD's anywhere in a 150 mile radius (searching thru Mazda's web site) - they're all AWD's.

    I hope it will be worth the wait!

    Very interesting. On a side note. I drive a BMW 325i with sports tuned suspension and large high performance tires..and triptronic. I LOVE my car and will be mourning the end of my lease in 20 days. I have been spoiled by the handling on my car and have found it difficult to downgrade in cars. I test drove the Mazda 3 with 2.3L and liked it enough to buy and pay off in 4 years and hand down to the daughter. I sat in the CX-9 and seems very comfy but did not test drive. The dealer however had a surcharge of 10K for limited availability (THEY MUST BE DOING DRUGS)they also had a surcharge of 5K on the CX-7! These dealers hear in Miami are vile and vicious. The sick part is that most consumers put up with that and accept all that added crap on the car. Mileage seems crappy for the CX-9 and I am still biased on the BMW. I test drove the X3 and loved it. By far the funnest little sort of cross over. Would like to see what the reliability and residuals would be on this car first. My 2 cents.

    Less than a week ago, I bought a stormy blue GT CX-9 for $2,000.00 below MSRP. I called around different dealers in the So Cal area and they all were offering me about the same discount off MSRP. I went with my local dealer because they were the only ones who had the stormy blue in the entire area. I guess they say it's the hot color. I'm lovin it.....can't wait to get off work to go drive it! :)
  • laker34laker34 Posts: 27
    Which dealer in So Cal did you purchase your car from? Also, what kind of interest rate were you able to get?
  • cjazoomcjazoom Posts: 9
    I bought the Grand Touring with navigation, bose, moonroof, auto dimming mirror and remote start. I believe those were all the extra options I purchased. Oh and I bought it at Patterson's Mazda in Tustin. The auto-dimming mirror was already installed and it wasn't an option I wanted, but I sure am glad I have it now. It makes an incredible difference at night, it reduces the glade tremendously! So total price was $36,100.00. My interest rate was 6.75% because I went super long term. Probably could have gotten lower if I didn't want such a long term.
  • remmibremmib Posts: 32
    Seems like you got a good deal. Is this a AWD or FWD?
    I went to Mazda web site to build with your options. For FWD MSRP is $37730 and AWD $38930, so you are getting slightly less than $2000 off for FWD or more than $2500 off for AWD?
  • cjazoomcjazoom Posts: 9
    My MSRP was $38,100.00
    I got the FWD. Didn't think I needed the AWD and I didn't want to lose any on the gas mileage.
  • laker34laker34 Posts: 27
    So how do you like the CX-9 so far? I'm trying to decide if I want to buy the CX-9 or the Saturn Outlook/GMC Acadia. Did you test drive other SUVs (or CUVs) before you purchased the CX-9?
  • srinaldisrinaldi Posts: 22
    You must have got something more than that. The FWD Grand Touring with Bose/sunroof runs MSRP $35030 and the remote start $350 and auto dim mirror $250 for a grand total MSRP of $35630.
  • laker34laker34 Posts: 27
    I think you're forgetting to add the $595 destination charge.
  • cjazoomcjazoom Posts: 9
    I absolutely love it.....

    The stereo is awesome, the handling is fun. The ride is just a bit hard but what do you expect with those big wheels. The cabin is quite and luxurious. And my favorite feature is the bluetooth that is navigated by voice. My only qualm is the lack of trip computer.If I had a choice of driving my boyfriend's lexus gs or the cx-9.....I'd say I'd rather drive the cx-9!

    I didn't test drive any of the ones you mentioned, but i test drove the jeep wrangler and the jeep grand cherokee. I actually ordered a rubicon wrangler. But my commute is going to increase to about 85 miles a day so I thought I needed something with better MPG and a better, smoother ride.
