After some terrible sales experiences in Chicagoland which included my family and I being cursed out of the dealership during negotiations in Schaumburg we ended up getting a sweet deal that we are proud of in Downers Grove <—- highly recommend!
Overall I contacted 9 dealerships, since late February when we began our search. Quotes were all very similar initially. Only until a few days ago did we see more dealers trying to be more aggressive in pricing.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond to this thread and I am happy to be officially a CX-30 Owner
I didn't end up buying the above car after all. I didn't really want the Soul Red as it was too much like the color of the Mazda3 (Copper Red) I've been driving for 14 years... They had an identical white car but didn't want to knock very much off of its price at all.Soul Red AWD Preferred. $29,240 MSRP - with various rebates and dealer discount - $24,403 including DOC fee. I will take care of my own Oklahoma tax & registration (about $1,250).
I saw several here in Japan just yesterday! Looking forward to see more CX-30 Owners join up and post what sort of deal they got...It appears the CX-30 is shaping up to be a big seller for Mazda.I finally saw a CX-30 driving around the city. It was a soul red, and I only caught a quick glance as I was driving in the opposite direction. The plastic cladding that drew a lot of negative criticism when the car was first released looks much better in person. I think I also would have opted for the polymetal gray over any other colour in the CX-30.
I have yet to see one, but then again, I don't go out much these days during this pandemic. However, there's a boatload of CX-5 and CX-9 in and around my neighborhood.I finally saw a CX-30 driving around the city.
That is my second choice color, but it's only available on the Premium, which was out of my price range. Japan has a really darn brownish color called Titanium Flash Mica, which would have totally been a close third choice.I think I also would have opted for the polymetal gray over any other colour in the CX-30.
About a week before buying my CX-30 at a Dallas area dealership I went to the Mazda store in Texarkana, TX to have a look. This particular dealership has multiple brands (Cadillac and maybe Buick too) in separate buildings. When I went into the Mazda building there was absolutely nobody there. NONE. I walked around looking at the various cars sitting on their showroom and I decided to leave. After getting outside I went back in to use their restroom then ended up sitting in a couple of the cars on display. I noticed each one had the key/fob laying in the console cup holders. I could have easily opened the doors and drove something away. And still nobody came around. I don't know if they had a camera watching or not but even after actually getting into my truck to leave I never saw a soul.e Evidently the sales folks aren't as hungry as I would have thought.Update: we did go to the dealer that night and walked around the lot. Went into the showroom and found no receptionist at the desk so we walked around looking at the cars inside for a good 15 minutes. Several employees walked right by us and didn't even say hello during this time. We decided to walk. The loyalty has since dropped to $750 and for shits and giggles I went to Carvana's site to see what they would offer on the Jeep. Their offer was $19,200 but our payoff is $24,500. That is too big of a hit to take and don't think the local dealer will do much better. So for now, we are going to live with the Jeep.
