What did you pay for your CX-5?

AZ is famous for bulshit addons and pricing gimmicks but its a free market. Take it or leave it :)

just some examples, not so extreme as 'hal2' ones but still ....

lcd protector 100+
tint 300+ (that is actually useful)
edge guards 100+
paint sealant 200+
bumper protection film 150+
vin etching 300+
security protection whatever 200+

and here is another nteresting offer examples from local dealers.

MSRP 36900
SALE PRICE 35400
WITH LOCAL TAX 38200
TOTAL:
42700 incl. taxes fees and all.
o_O over 4500 in fees and whatever.

my favorite 'mind trick' from few years back is sales person leaving me on his desk with the bible on top of it for me to 're-think' the offer.
 
I'm looking to buy 2020 CX-5 Touring in Metallic Gray w/out Preferred Package. $10k down, financing the rest. How much should I ask for the total price with Tax, Title, License and Fees included (OTD)?

I've been quoted between $27- $28500k by several dealers before TTL..which I turned down.

Located in CA: Orange County + LA area

A Good touring 2020 discount imo should be in 8% to 14% range. So if the MSRP on Mazda website says 28000 - it would be from 24,000 to 25 760. But I am not sure if C-19 changes that. I am not seeing new cars at big dealers on autotrader etc. as the inventory levels could be very low - so most of the sales happen at or around MSRP.

CX-5 Touring 2016.5
Hi folks, first time new car buyer narrowed down to 2021 CX-5 Grand Touring without pp. question is how much should I not pay over if the MSRP is 30,377? I live in Dallas, Texas if that matters. thanks for help.
Dallas - you have Freeman - honest and good dealer will give you good price and it can be beat.
El Dorado - see if they are desperate to sell
Mazda of Hurst - not cool
Town North - biggest volume and may give you the best deal.
I did see a good few rates outside dallas - install Auto trader and use it to search-spread out to 200-300 miles out of DFW.

For GT a great discount is 13-15% off MSRP - note for me I didn't care about CX5, I had a default fall back in Rav4 and I had 12.8% off Touring w/ Package. Use email to do the talking and look at OTD pricing. Then go in. If a dealer is close to hitting his quotas he will give you a good deal. I had no deal and then within 16 hours I was driving home my car from El Dorado. I got around 100-150 dollar worth stuff free - tint etc. and one oil change which I did not use. For service I actually go to Freeman Toyota.
From a Trucar perspective - my prices was 10% lower than the lowest Trucar price on their website. So use that as a barometer and again - its a function of time and discounts. Act quick on any good offer and you should be good.

Once you walk in there they know you won't walk out over "only' $500 which is, as they will tell you "only" $8.33 per month for 60 months.

That's why I'm a big advocate of emailing and saying "I'll come in tomorrow morning and pay $xx,xxx. If you can accept that great, if not, I respect your decision but have to think about it for a week" Trust me, they do not want you to think about it for a week as you may never come back.
 
Okay! This is my first time buying a car (I've only ever leased) and today haggled my way to (what i think is) a fair price for the Cx-5 Touring with the preferred package + leather seats.

For background: the reason I added leather seats as a one-off rather than just upgrade to the CX-5 Grand Touring is because I specifically want mahogany colored leather seats -- not that parchment white/beige color. To get that mahogany color on the GT, they'd charge an extra $1600 to switch out the existing beige leather -- which just wasn't worth it. The Touring (with the preferred package) had everything I needed. I didn't see a need for the satellite radio or the 19 inch wheels.

So anyway.. here's the offer we got (after some back and forth):

MSRP: 29,505 (Touring + preferred package)
Less Discount: -$3,478.93
Less Rebates: -$1,250
+ Leather: $1600
Doc fee: $680
Tax: 849.18 (3% tax where I am in NC)
Non Tax Fees: 94.75
Total OTD price: $28,000

I think I did well...but I'm not sure. I didn't buy it just yet; I walked out because I felt a bit pressured to sign on the dotted line. But by the looks of it, I'm getting a 11% discount on MSRP (not including rebates....but including rebates it ends up being closer to 18% off MSRP).

I'm just about ready to sign on the dotted line this week -- but wanted to throw this out there in case others felt I could do better.

thanks!

You should absolutely skip that leather upgrade for $1600. It will NEVER look factory and I would NOT have them tear into and remove the seats on your brand new car with all the touchy electronics airbags and wiring. They will absolutely do a hack job and will break clips etc. The smart thing to do is go for the grand touring woth factory leather or live with the seats in the touring preferred. You are asking for trouble , not to mention rip off price to do that. Also, would this dealer happen to be in Raleigh?
