Lets just say that the final paperwork did not match the email or what I thought we had agreed on. I did get the price but I was demanding my keys back before I was done.
Think the lowest price posted is a gimmick most of the time also. It did just that, kept the poster above from negotiating, or feeling there was no room for any. Bull honky. It's like CarMax and their no haggle price they claim to be the best. A quick look around shows they're thousands overpriced most of the time.
Glad it all worked out for you in the end, though...
I have less than a week before taking delivery of my '17 GT AWD w/Premium Pkg. Dealer won't budge on price but is willing to cut some corners such as refunding the remaining lease pmt on my 2015.
I'm moving up from the bi-xenon HIDs to the LED headlights and anxious to compare. The HIDs were definitely better than halogens but they did have an extremely sharp cutoff. The 2017 that I took for a drive was eons quieter than my 1st gen CX-5.
Seriously, I was not liking the lack of directional stability in my current CX-5. Understand that a short wheelbase vehicle with high center of gravity drives differently than a family sedan but I never really felt that secure on the highway.
Just purchased a black 2017 Mazda CX-5 for my wife in Georgia. Car is still on the way here from Jacksonville, should arrive Wednesday.
2017 CX-5 GT FWD
Sales Price: $28,000 after $2,585 in rebates and dealer discount
Sales Tax (7%): $2,030

$500 Chase financing incentive

I had 2 dealerships I was pitting against one another. Sales manager said he didn't want to go back and forth with the other dealer and asked how much additional discount I needed so I told him make the sale price an even $29K before rebates, he agreed.I asked the other dealer if they could do anything else and they said they were done.
Just purchased my first Mazda: 2017 CX-5 GT FWD in Machine Gray (no premium package).
My price: $29,335 (including $940 destination fee, before TTL)
Unfortunately, I didn't qualify for any rebates.
I am thrilled to have this vehicle in my driveway right now. Thanks to everyone on this thread for sharing pricing info and negotiation tips!
What did you have prior? What made you consider Mazda?

When I bought my 16 Akera July last year, i got it from a dealer about 100km away, on the Gold Coast. Had seen the car in person a few days earlier and noted the ViN number.
Then did the deal and agreed price over the phone on the following Tuesday. Within an hour, the dealer admin had emailed me the contract, i printed out, signed, scanned and emailed it back, and at the same time, I EFT'd a deposit into their account and we had a binding contract there and then. Contract included a schedule with the specified vehicle details including VIN number.
Can't you guys do the same?
On the day of collection no dramas at all, i had done the funds transfer of the balance to their account, they checked it was there, and everything proceeded exactly as per contract. My wife, son and I each were presented with a nice Mazda cap with the logo of the local footy team the dealer group sponsors on it, my wife also scored a big bunch of flowers. They fitted my personalised number plates while we waited.
