    Nice rig! Very sharp looking.

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    Hard to evaluate the deal without itemizing dealer discount, incentives, etc. See my posts above for full list of itemizations. If you give us good data, we can give you an accurate answer.

    Looking for some insights...

    If they were my daughters, I’d take a serious look at the CX-30. Good safety tech and a more reasonable price point. Small back row, but do they need more? Seems to be a raised 3 hatch, which would be worth a look itself if you were thinking sedan.

    Does smartphone USB port also charge phone?

    Front USB ports should be putting out 1.5 amps IIRC, at least while the engine is on.

    Disable Database Artist Name Retrieval

    #FirstWorldProblems LOL. Hit the home button to put something else on screen? if you don’t know what book you’re listening to without a display of what’s playing, you must not be paying enough attention.

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    Probably area-specific. I’m in Denver Metro. Could be statewide.

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    Great deal and excellent presentation of the detailed pricing!

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    Yes, one is loyalty. The other is $1500 off any new CX-5 purchase (or lease I assume).

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    Best I’ve been able to do is 10% off MSRP excluding dealer fees and before incentives. Still haven’t pulled the trigger. Even though it is the ‘deal of a lifetime’ given Mazda’s pricing structure, I still like my 16.5 and trade-in values or very low now. It is tiresome seeing all the posts that...

    Is this a great price for a 2019 CX-5 GT?

    I’d call it “run don’t walk” unless it has something seriously wrong - salvage title, bent frame, engine/tranny damage, etc. might be worth having a trusted mechanic give it a good check up.

    Extended Warranty - Turbo?

    That’s what I thought. Was offered this: “For 9yr/100,000 $0 ded. Our cost is $2584.” No sale! Since I probably won’t be buying, I did not negotiate the bid. $1k too high IMHO.

    CX-5 head on pole crash

    I guess a comma between “on” and “pole” is needed there. As one who frequently abuses the sometimes-overused punctuation mark, I hadn’t thought of that interpretation until your post. Good find LOL.

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    FWIW, All Denver dealers except Schomp charge a D&H of $599 or $699. It is non-negotiable. Schomp is a “one price” Dealer and doesn’t negotiate. You can see their price online.

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    Sent that info to you last Tuesday via direct message.

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    The dealers are hungry right now. I was offered 10% off a GT-R. (See above) Several others wouldn’t go more than 8%. That was before rebates of $3k including loyalty. Not sure if I’ll bite - my 16.5 GT is covered for 5.5 years with extended warranty and new 80k mile Conti True Contacts, not to...
