2013 and earlier Mazda CX-9 Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • lukes6lukes6 Posts: 35
    Take a look at my post (3161). I was trying to work a cash deal on a 2010 GT AWD with the same MSRP. Here are your two options for January as I understand them for a 2010 CX9 purchase:

    0/60 financing plus 750 cash or

    3000 off if you bring your own financing or cash deal.

    I would think that you could get the CX9 you're looking at for around 33000 if you choose the 0/60 including the 750 cash back towards that target price. 34000 is still a little high for a year old 2010 model in my opion and from my dealings in the last two months. If you are serious on getting this, make them an offer at 32000 and try to work towards 33000.

    If you are a current Mazda owner you would also qualify for the 500 loyalty which would bring to 32500.

    In NJ I got an offer from a dealer for a 2010 GT w/nav/Bose for $28,020.
  • lukes6lukes6 Posts: 35
    Do you recall the MSRP?

    Was that with loyalty and/or trade? If not,
    that's one hell of a price! They would have been taking a beating on that one. You should have grabbed that deal.
  • Mistake I paid 27,900.
  • I'm in the DC area.

    I agree that it is quite a price - loyalty or not. After searching the Bay area for a great deal on a GT AWD for almost a month - especially after one of the poster's claim of a 30,500 price on one with MSRP of 39.4 K - I have come to the conclusion that getting more than $7000 off a GT with options can only happen on vehicles with some significant miles on them. So I pulled the trigger on a 2010 Touring AWD with no options for 27 K cash (MSRP 33 K) before TTL. My hats off to people who can manage better deals because dealers here just don't seem that hungry even with CX-9s that have been sitting on their lots for months.

    You got a nice price on the touring. The MSRP on the GT that I was offered was close to $40K it was loaded. Don't remember exactly.

    The dealers in this area that I've encountered so far don't seem to be quite as eager to slash prices as some of the other dealers out there as per this forum. I've sent an email to 7 or 8 dealers in the area and visited one. None of them seem to want to go as low as 33k with 0 APR. Many of them will go down to 33k but the second you mention to 0 APR they start balking. I'm curious to know if anyone went with the 0 % APR how low of a price were you able to negotiate?
  • circlewcirclew Posts: 8,612
    I received 2 prices:$3,000 additional for the 0% APR.

    I will stand firm and submit this is deceptive. There is no "0%" if there are 2 prices.

    Period, the end.

    Then I guess you think every manufacturer is deceptive when they offer a special finance rate OR a cash incentive.

    You get a choice on what you want to do. Intelligent shoppers will do the math and see which incentive makes the car cheaper for them. I would assume most of us have basic math skills to figure that out.

    Bottom line, there is no deception. Opinions are not to be misconstrued as facts.
  • circlewcirclew Posts: 8,612
    No, a finance rate of 3.9% on the cash price is the reality.

    Spin it anyway you like. 0% on a second price is deceptive advertising...all mfgrs. included. ;)

  • lukes6lukes6 Posts: 35

    I looked back at what I replied and think I gave you some really low numbers to shoot for considering you wanted the 0/60 financing. My brain was still stuck in cash deal thinking. Would estimate from my experience, in my state, that you should be able to get around 1250 off invoice, taking the 0/60 option. That would include the 750 cash you would get for the 0/60 option. If you qualify for the 500 Mazda loyalty add that to the 1250. I know....doesn't feel like such a great deal.

    The sales manager at my local dealer did mention that dealers have less wiggle room since Mazda cut their tier incentives to use for advertising back in November. The only real things they have to make the deal are incentives, dealer holdback, dealer fees, and any trade that you might have.

    Sorry for giving you crap numbers earlier. Hope this helps.

    I was wondering what price where people getting in the Philly area for a CX 9 AWD?

  • My wife and I have owned a 2007 GT for about 3.5 years, driven it 90K trouble free miles and decided we might as well take advantage of year end pricing to gain another one. Purchased at Jim Ellis Mazda in Marietta where we bought the first one. $36750 list, $30,000 plus Tax purchase price. Did not get their 0% financing.

    I must say as much as we enjoyed the 07 the 10 really seems to have some nice "refinements." The audio head unit with screen is a nice touch.... white dial needles on the dash (instead of orange), digital controls on the rear h/ac controls, slight refinements in the interior of the CX9 have all made for a very satisfying first two weeks of ownership.

    Interesting that we bought the '10 for about $2K less than the '07, but we have more on it... backup camera, power rear lift gate, Sirius radio and more. The best option we purchased on the '07 was the remote start. On a cold morning or hot, sunny afternoon having the ability to warm/cool the car before entry is wonderful. Required that on the purchase of our new one as well. The blind spot indicator has turned out to be quite useful as well.

    My wife, when I asked her about buying a new one, said that would be great. I want one just like this one.... blue with sand interior. So, that's what we have again. Neighbors still don't know we bought a new vehicle!
  • Hello,

    any rates on the 2011 CX-9 Touring in the Raleigh, NC area? Found one with an MSRP of $31,850 that I'm going to look at tonight. Wanting to do a 36 month, 12k mile lease. Is anyone doing 0 down?

    I'm currently in a lease on an 08 Honda Pilot with two payments left. Honda dealer said I have a little equity in that...payoff is $17200 and they would give me $18500 and use that little bit to a new Pilot but wasn't that impressed with their offer.

    I received a price for 33,300 on a 2010 GT AWD with moonroof, remote starter, roof rails with 0% for 60 months excluding T&T. Is this a good deal? Thanks
  • Maybe if it was a 2011, 2010, it's fair.
    Does it come with monitors on the head rest.
    I think you could squeezed them for another.
    $1000. If you know your credit is awesome.
    Tell them you want it for 32k, walk and tell them to call
    you if they accept your offer. If they think your crazy,
    tell them free oil changes for the lifespand of the
    vehicle, tire rotations, and squeeze a roof rack if it's not equiped.
    Always be relaxed, never anxious, if you get
    the car or if you don't you really don't care.

    I recently bought a 2010 CX-9 Grand Touring AWD with Navigation, moonroof/Bose, power liftgate and roof rails for $31998 + tax & license. Purchased in San Francisco Bay Area last week. Price includes $3000 dealer incentive and $500 San Jose Auto show customer rebate. MSRP $39,565, Invoice $36,549. Financed on my own at 2.7%. Did I do alright?
  • pf2001pf2001 Posts: 110
    No monitors on the head rest. Yeh, I feel that the quote is still high for 10. I think I will pass. Thanks voltron.
  • lukes6lukes6 Posts: 35

    The Invoice on this vehicle is 35404. Since you're wanting to take advantage of the 0/60 financing, I don't think 33300 is all that bad. Other than the 0/60 financing, you would only qualify for the 750 cash back from the manufacturer. If you're a current Mazda owner you can qualify for the additional 500 loyalty. Looks like the dealer is offering 2100 below invoice and almost 5000 off MSRP. From my experience here in FL, that's about as good as it gets when you take their 0/60 financing. If you bring your own financing, the should be able to knock off another 2500-3000. Good luck!
  • pf2001pf2001 Posts: 110
    Hi Lukes6,

    Well, the 750 deduction was already included. I think they could have went down farther.

    I went with the 11 GT AWD with moonroof, powergate, mud guards and remote starter for 34,000 with .9/60.
  • lukes6lukes6 Posts: 35
    Nice! I came to the same conclusion. The 2010's weren't discounted to the point were I felt good about the price verses taking a hit on a new vehicle that was a year old. Plus I really could fine one with everything I wanted. I was also trying to do a trade in with the deal but they really didn't want to give me much for. I decided to drive the wides SUV a little longer and sell myself. Will work on finding a 2011 CX9 I like with the options I 'm looking for later. Enjoy your CX9! The 3.7/6 speed trans is a nice trouble free combo. I have the same in my 09 Mazda6 and it scoots.
  • pf2001pf2001 Posts: 110
    Thanks lukes6. This is my first Mazda. I heard nothing but good things about this vehicle and glad that the Mazda tranny is better than others...

    I have a quote of 33,830 (excl. T&T) for a 2010 GT AWD with moonroof, navigation, power liftgate. Is this a good deal? I am in the DC area.
  • agbiggsagbiggs Posts: 19
    I recently bought in N. Virgina and paid a bit more than that (and thought I got a good deal), although I also had the Bose audio. What's the MSRP for the car you're looking at?
  • dc2011dc2011 Posts: 6
    MSRP is 39,365.
    The spec is GT AWD, Bose, Moonroof, Navi, liftgate. I'm looking in Montgomery County, MD

    My husband and I were looking to buy a new 2010 Mazda CX9 sport that we went to see at the dealer. We test drove the car and liked it but the breaks made a funny noise which he said was because it hasnt been driven in a while but that after 10 or so miles it should be fine. Is this true? About the price:He began to tell us that because it is a left over from last year's inventory that he was willing to give it to us at his "invoice price" which was according to his "print sheet" $28,000 OTD with 0% financing. This didnt sound right to me at all because my sister bought the EXACT, color and all, same 2010 CX9 at 0% on a deal for $28,000 OTD one year ago in the first week of february. Also, the tax in my state is half the amount of hers so i really knew he wasnt being honest. I felt something was wrong and explained to him why and he said hmm thats odd i dont know why the dealer would give the bottom price at the beginning of the year. He said if i was to pay up front that I could knock off another $3000. Making the offer about 26,100 OTD. He was stuck on his price until of course I thanked him for his time and said i would like to think it over upon when the the boss came over and said he would be able to knock off another $400, making the new OTD price 25,700 up front. He said this was the last he was able to let it go for even though its left over inventory because he was technically "losing" money even at this last price. I just don't believe that, was he just trying to make us feel bad? I mean I understand that the dealer has to make money as well but this is our first car buy and we really need the help. How fair is this deal? We just don't want to be duped. I'd appreciate any help/advice/opinion! Thank you!

    Yes, new cars that sit on car lots for weeks or months usually build up some surface rust on the brake rotors which can cause some noise when driven. Usually will go away within a few miles of driving and braking.

    As far as purchasing a 2010 CX9 Sport - go to or and look up a 2010 CX9 Sport and add the options on the vehicle you're looking at. This will give you the MSRP, Invoice, and what others are paying in your area prices so that you can verify what the dealer told you the invoice price is. Print these out so you have proof when you go to the dealer.

    If you want to take advantage of Mazda's 0%/60 mos financing on a 2010 CX9, you can probably shoot for $1000 to $1250 below Invoice. Don't know if the dealer told you , but Mazda is offering $750 cash back on 2010 CX9 models. I considered that in the $1000 to $1250 below Invoice that I mentioned.

    If you bring your own financing or pay cash, shoot for $4000 to $4250 below Invoice. This would include the Manufacturer to dealer incentive of $3000 (if you don't take the 0%/60 Mazda option) plus $750 cash back to customer.

    Keep in mind, this is a year old 2010 model. Don't let them make you feel too bad. They do want to move this year old model. Good luck!

    See what the fake 0% pricing does to sales? Deceptive means wary customer.

    It seems Mazda had their best month EVER last month selling CX-9's and finished up almost 25% YoY. Yeah, this so-called "deception" has really deterred people from buying the CX-9.

    People come here for advise and help and spreading lies based on nothing but personal opinions helps no one.
