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



  • Does anyone know the October incentives yet? Are they going to enhance them to make room for the 2013?
  • Just curious if anyone knows the October incentives for the CX-9. I live in Baltimore and I'm planning on buying or leasing this week. For a 2012 model,is taking $5000 off of MSRP fair? Thanks!
  • Have you seen the previews of the 2013. Nice exterior. For last year, end of year discounts were around 6500 from MSRP
  • Or it's a lemon that came back, or my momma has a nice big bridge to sell. When do you believe what they say? When their lips stop moving.
  • If you haven't already, check out FitzMall in Annapolis. You can go to their website and they give you nohaggle pricing. We found it was a great price when we bought a CX9 earlier this year. Ask for Joe Frantum.
  • Wow that Fitzmall seems to have the right idea, wish I was closer. What about misc fees, doc fees and other such nonsense?

    Worked a deal on a 2012 Grand Touring AWD in the New Orleans area with Pearl Paint, Bose and Power Lift Gate; I wanted more off but this was the most I could get - I was hoping for some other hidden incentives but I could not find any. The AWD is not very common in this area so there were not as many around. I put a deposit and will be financing with my credit union for 1.99%. The car was manufactured 10/11 and had been sitting in the dealer showroom for quite a long time; new vehicle.

    The deal was as follows:
    MSRP: 38435
    Negotiated Price: 32491 (invoice - $3,000 incentive - hold back)
    Tax at 9%: 2924.19
    TL: 126.50
    OTD: 35541.69

    No other fees, No trade

    We also considered the Subaru Tribeca, Honda Pilot, and Infiniti JX (to see how the new Pathfinder would kind of ride/look). The features, ride, and feel of the CX-9 just felt superior to all of them - including the $46,700 Infiniti JX.

    Pretty much the same car: AWD, Dolphin Gray, Bose/MoonRoof, Liftgate, 6 disc, Roof Rack, Touring Models

    Local Dealer $31700 (+ wheel locks)

    Metro Dealer 3.5 hours away $31500 (+ dealer specific lifetime powertrain warranty)

    The added warranty is not a big deal since I doubt we'll keep the car longer than 5-6 years. I think the deals are ok. I may ask the local guy to throw in all weather mats and the cargo mat and see if it flies. We don't have tax in my state.

    Currently in a 2006 Subaru Tribeca that is just a little space limited. The AWD works great but the car is going on 101K. Trying to sell the Subaru locally as the trade offers aren't looking too hot. Looking to do the 1.49% 5 year PenFed loan on top of whatever we get for the Tribeca as the down.

    Prices were $2000 higher with the 0.0% 60 month incentive as previously posted.

    Not sure if I should wait it out till Nov/Dec when the 2013s actually start showing up...
  • sbuhlersbuhler Posts: 103

    Are you referring to the Touring model for the deal or Grand Touring? If this is Grand Touring I would think you are getting a great deal. I could not get under the price I posted.

    I like the Grand Touring better because of the Xenon Headlights, Fog lights, Memory Seats, and Blind Spot Monitoring.

    Touring Models

    I'm happy with the Touring. Our Tribeca was the Limited Trim with Nav and DVD. 7 years later we have a horrible Nav and the kids prefer their iPods/tablets for movies anyway.

    I'm also looking down the road and looking to save a bit by not needing 20" tires and Xenon bulbs. Wife and I are nearly identical in stature so we don't move the seats in our cars around. Blind spot monitoring would be great but I think we can do w/o.
  • Xenon bulbs cost less than Halogens. Haven't needed to replace mine since 2001 in my RX.
  • aviboy97aviboy97 Posts: 3,159
    Xenon bulbs are vastly more expensive. But, they do last significantly longer.
  • Bah, well I lost that gamble. Looks like November incentives are a few hundred bucks less than October. Oh well, maybe I will wait till December :)
  • sbuhlersbuhler Posts: 103

    I actually think they have improved significantly. The same car on fitzmall's site is almost 2,000 less this month. So if you look back at the deal I got on Oct 20; I think you should be able to get at least 1,500 more off my deal. I am curious when the official incentive numbers start floating around.
  • vinnynyvinnyny Posts: 774
    Don't fret. The real numbers won't be up on Edmunds for about a week. There's always a lag when the incentives change over.
  • Thanks All for the encouragement.

    I do see the new FitzMall prices.

    I would prefer to keep the purchase local but they just don't seem as motivated as the big city guys. Of course, the smaller dealer may not have the same clout with Mazda USA.
  • sbuhlersbuhler Posts: 103
    You are right who knows how much back end incentives some dealers have compared to others especially when it comes to volume incentives. I would say if you are happy with your local dealer and they will give it to you for invoice-incentives (3,500 now)-hold back (1%) you have done very well. You can always get a better deal elsewhere, but sometimes it is just not worth the extra 500-1,000 you might save travelling.

    We bought the car yesterday. I got offers for two cars at the dealer 3 hours away:

    31,249 (Touring, AWD, Moon Roof and Bose, Power Liftgate) + ~$400 DMV (not tax)
    33,000 (Grand Touring AWD, Moon Roof and Bose, Power Liftgate, 6 Disc so NO Nav)

    Went to our local guy. He said he could likely match the Touring price or come real close. At the time we were thinking $1500 more for all the Grand Touring features like blind spot monitoring, alarm, xenon, fog lights, slightly nicer wood trim might just be worth it spread out over 6-7 years. Unfortunately, the local dealer did not have a Grand Touring in stock w/o Nav. I really didn't want the Nav system for $1600 since I think our phones do just fine for that function.

    We bit the bullet and settled on a Grand Touring similarly equipped as the $33K model but with the Nav. We basically got the same deal you did but had to pay for the Nav. So, in summary:

    OTD Drive Off $34345 includes DMV, no tax in Oregon
    2012 AWd Grand Touring Dolphin Grey w/Black interior
    Roof Rails

    ~$5900 under MSRP

    I was going to do the PenFed 1.49% to get the $2000 but it was Sunday so we would of had to wait on getting the car till at least Mon/Tue. Dealer asked if they could try to get us financing (I assume they get some sort of referral if they sell financing as well). Ended up getting 1.74% through Chase (Mazda lender) for 60 months. We will likely pay it off early so I thing the quarter pt difference is negligible. It saved us the hassle of getting an external loan and dealing with the title being sent elsewhere.

    I tried really hard to squeeze a few hundred more out of these guys. I asked for the all weather mats or cargo tray and it was a no go. In the end they threw in the roof rails (to be ordered and installed). Dealer gives first oil change for free so that's a tiny rebate too I guess.

    I'm sure if the car was around another month we could have done better but I was tired of looking and I didn't feel like driving or flying 500 miles roundtrip to save a few hundred bucks. I'm also ok with the nav. After reading the manuals I realized that it had more features than I was aware of with the voice command recognition.

    Good luck to everyone! And, thanks for all the help and input! It was really useful!

    Glad for you! I am glad to hear that you got the Grand Touring. I tell you my wife really likes the blind spot monitoring. I think you get so many extras in the grand touring for not that much of an additional cost. We love ours. In the long run many times it is best to give the local guy the business. Our dealer also gave us a free first oil change. Might be a Mazda dealer thing. I normally do the maintenance on our vehicles, but I will take them up on the free oil change. I also heard the oil filter is torqued down a lot from the factory so I will let them deal with the first one. We are at 1100 miles already. Awesome vehicle! Can't believe more people don't purchase the CX9 over other offerings.

    Hope to see you over at Seem to have a decent but not very active forum on the CX9.
  • Yup! I need to create an account over there on 247. I was just researching the all weather mat options yesterday before getting the Weathertech Digital Liners and 2/3rd rows mat. I went with the OEM cargo tray for the 3rd row compatibility.

    You are right about buying from the local guy. I figure the good will will come in handy if I have warranty issues. We tend to take our cars to the dealer while under warranty. I service my Mini Cooper and old Landcruiser myself though.

    Safe and happy miles to you!
  • Hi All,

    I've been quoted a lease deal on a White Mica Pearl/Tan interior CX-9 Grand Touring AWD with Moonroof/Bose, Power Liftgate, and Navigation, for $436/month for 48 months, 10K miles per year, and a 16,850 residual.

    Good deal?
  • thank you if you can share your purchase information of buying a CX-9 recently in salt lake city.

    I'm helping my mom shop for a new vehicle and she really likes the CX-9. We've discussed the differences and look at countless photos online debating between the Touring and Grand Touring models. The Touring is a little cheaper, but the Grand Touring wheels and trim are definitely worth the extra cash!

    Of course, leave it to my mom to pick out one of the hardest find to color combinations- Dolphin Gray with Sand interior. The majority of the Dolphin Gray ones I've found have Black interior, but I have found three within a 250-mile radius of Atlanta that have the Sand Leather! As a backup, she will (begrudgingly) take one in Crystal White Pearl, which comes with Sand interior only.

    Here are the two best offers that I've received-

    2012 CX-9 Grand Touring
    Crystal White Pearl/Sand Leather
    NO Options- MSRP- $34,730
    Selling Price- $29,230 (includes $500 Loyalty rebate for my Mazda3).

    2012 CX-9 Grand Touring
    Dolphin Gray/Sand Leather
    Bose/Moonroof Package
    Power Liftgate
    Cargo Net
    Wheel Locks
    MSRP- $37,290
    Selling Price- $30,400 (after $500 Mazda Loyalty incentive)

    So it's only $1170 more to get the one in her preferred color AND with the Moonroof/Bose Package and Power Liftgate. The resale value alone makes that a no-brainer.

    Does the $30,400 quote ($6,810 off MSRP) look like a good deal? I'm planning to offer them $30k flat, but we'll pay $30,400 since we know it's the only one in that color combo left around here (and it's three hours away)!

    This is sort of an addendum to my previous posting, but I have found another 2012 CX-9 Grand Touring FWD, Crystal White Pearl w/ Sand Leather and NO Options (a 'base' GT as another dealer called it). The base sticker price is $33,395 instead of $33,735 (which is the current price, effective 03/01/2012). So the logical inference is that they received this particular vehicle prior to 03/01/2012, correct? If so, they've had it on the lot for at least eight months and I'm hoping that they will jump on an opportunity to get rid of it.

    I'm planning to send an email offering $29,000 plus sales tax, tag and title fee. I just have one question for anyone who can answer it- I realize that the standard 6-speaker Audio System won't be a powerhouse, but is the sound quality decent? My mom is hardly an audiophile, so I'm hoping it will be adequate. If it can play James Taylor and Anne Murray at reasonable volume, that's good enough....although I know it doesn't have an 8-track, so she'll be disappointed! =)

    Secretly, I'm still rooting for the $30,400 deal for a Dolphin Gray Grand Touring with Sand Leather, Bose/Moonroof and Power Liftgate! She says she doesn't care about those features now, but I know the Bose stereo and Power Liftgate would win her over very quickly......

    On the 30,400 one I think it is a very good deal. If you look at it, invoice is right around 35,000 deduct the 4,000 (3,500 incentives + 500 mazda loyalty) you are at 31,000. They are clearly giving you the hold back and some of anything else. You might also want to compare your prices to the fitzmall prices, they had a huge discount this month compared to last although the incentives only increased by $500. That might mean there is more out there. However, the 30,400 seems like a solid deal.

    The other deal with the MSRP 34,730 seems to be a little high. They seem like they are wanting about $400 over invoice on that deal minus incentives. I think there is at least another $750-850 left on that deal.

    I purchased my Grand Touring AWD with an MSRP of $38,435 for $32,490 on Oct 20. You should at least get another grand off of my deal due to the $500 increase in incentives and $500 owner loyalty, if not more.
  • sbuhlersbuhler Posts: 103
    My 2012 that we purchased in october had a build date of 10/11. It had the old pricing. You might be able to get a better deal since it has been sitting on their lot, but remember they are also paying to have it sit on the lot. Does the grand touring without the Bose have the backup camera?

    I would say if you can get invoice-$4,000 incentives (including loyalty)-1% holdback you are doing very well. Anything under, you are definitely pulling out of any other incentives they might have on the CX-9 that is not readily available and might be dependent on the dealership you are dealing with. Some might be hitting other incentives while others are not. That is why the best deal now will always be beat the next day.

    I don't know about the 6 speaker sound, but I would assume it would be pretty decent.

    Is that a good deal? :confuse: sales price 34,490. MRSP 41,490. 2012 Pearl White automatic, AWD. All other fees - doc, license, title etc come in at $450.
    I also got quotes from all the local dealers, as well as Costco Fleet manager and Internet. The Costco salesperson said they'd match it but agreed I got a good price. ( they were initially 1k more )

    This car has everything, fully loaded top of the line. It also has the cargo roof rack (valued at $250). I'm in the Bay Area. Thanks :)
  • sbuhlersbuhler Posts: 103
    Price looks good to me. Invoice is around 38,800. Looks like they are pulling off the 3,500 incentives along with hold back and about another $400. If your deal includes the $500 owner loyalty then I think you are doing very well. If it does not include owner loyalty then I think you are doing even better.

    Has anyone heard anything about a release date for the 2013 Cx-9? I can't seem to get a straight answer from the dealership. I assume there will be good deals to be had on the 2012 model around that time.

    I'd say pretty shortly here. The pricing was already set in October 22nd and it was made public on Mazda's website on Nov 12th...
