What did you pay for your CX-9?

Here is what I did...and what others have already suggested.

I first got a quote from a large volume dealer who was known to sell cheaper then most since they work in volume of sales. Got around $6,000 off MSRP without any incentives such as Miltiary or prior Mazda owner since I am neither.

Next I shopped that around multiple dealers and finally landed one that agreed to match it. From experience you will get more of a discount by financing (except if you opt for 0% special financing) verse paying straight cash since the dealers get a financing kick back.

My goal was to pay cash so I took the financing route to get the best deal possible and paid off the loan in full when my first payment was due.

2021 mazda CX9 GT silver in AWD purchased February 2021, MSRP $45,040, final deal was $39,000 plus TTL (california taxes suck).

Wish I had some other incentives such as current mazda owner or miltiary, would have made a much sweeter deal but I am extremely happy with my CX9. 👍

Financing vs paying cash. You are correct, with the small distinction that by financing, it often means with other means than the 0% APR offered (or low interest rate offered by Mazda).

In my case: Negotiate a price with the dealer, Refuse the 0% APR and get the cash payment incentive from Mazda corporate on top of the negotiated price (that also saves a bit of taxes), finance at 4% through the agreement the dealer has with a bank (this is were dealer receives his kickback), then immediately payback the loan and save the 4% interest.

of course that only work if the financing is flexible enough to allow to pay it early with no penalties or interest charges.

Spot on. I think I ended up paying $23 bux in interest before paying my loan off in full, I want to say 3 weeks after I signed at the dealership. No pre payment penalties so I was good to go. Just hit my 600 mile break in now it's really time to have some fun. 😎
 
I usually don't buy used vehicles from a dealer but I think I found a good deal this time. 2018 CX-9 Sport at 38k miles paid $21,500 out to door including tag tax title. No accidents and clean carfax.
 
I didn’t know we were doing used prices here but I’ll add mine. 2016 GT black interior and MGM exterior. 43k miles. $24,778 OTD. Needed new mirror caps ($100) but CarFax was clean. Original plan was to keep it knowing it would be a trade in for a 6th gen 4Runner when they come out in 2022/2023 but I’m liking it more than I thought I would.

I'm shopping for a 2021 CX-9 (CE or GT) in the Raleigh, NC area (finance, not lease). Most dealer websites are offering about $2500ish off MSRP. How much more should I be expecting to get off when I visit in person and attempt to play hardball?

Just bought a 2021 CX-9 CE (FWD) with illuminated door plates as the only option in Cary, NC. Paid $42.5k OTD including $750 Mazda loyalty credit or whatever it's called. Also got 0% for 60 months through Mazda with the deal but I did have to haggle to get this deal. I was told the internet price was only for cash buyers which was about $2500 off MSRP but I basically got the $2500 off by haggling. I was told by multiple sources that Mazda is marking new vehicles up very soon due to low supply. My salesperson said that they mark up the used vehicles weekly on their lot.

I found a good deal (I think). CPO 2020 CX-9 Signature in red at 12k miles paid $35,200 (before taxes/registration). No accidents and clean carfax. 2 weeks with the car now and loving it.

I know supply is tight but there are a bunch of Carbons on the lots that obviously aren't moving that well. Truecar still shows ~7% off msrp is the best I could do, however. Could I get over 10% in mid Atlantic, Northeast?

Just joined the forum, and a new owner. I am in mid-atlantic/east coast, picked up a Carbon for just shy of 10% off MSRP. Be weary if you are shopping MD or VA, they have crazy doc fees and then also add in destination (advertised pricing has it removed). Inventory does appear to be getting tight and the dealer told me they have 0 CX-9 inbound. Glad to have grabbed a discount and the 0% while it was still out there.

The CX-9 is a very nice looking SUV, but the Carbon Edition is just stunning. Dealer offered similar percentage discount on a GT, making it only a few hundred dollars more, but preferred the look of the CE as opposed to getting the HUD and 360 cameras in the GT.
 
We just leased this ‘21 GT AWD at a cap cost of $41,200, a little over $4,000 off MSRP And were able to turn in our Mazda6 Signature a year early due to appreciating used car values. 3-4 months ago the buyout of the 6’s lease was more than the trade in value. Last week when we got the 9 it was $1300 more than the buyout. We put that $1300 equity as a down payment on the lease of the 9 and our lease payment only went up $29 a month….even though the 9 had an MSRP $10k higher than the 6. I was happy with the deal.

Hi All, New here, first post!

Just about to pull the trigger on a 2021 Touring with premium package for $36 OTD at 0%. First Mazda (VW/Audi when I was family-less, then Toyota) and I'm super happy with the car and the deal.
Sounds good! Everything at my local Mazda dealers except the CX-9 "Sport"....everything else is $40,000 or more. I just can't seem to do it. It doesn't seem fair to my wife for me to spend $40K on something that immediately loses its value the moment I drive it off the lot. Toyota Highlanders are all 40K also. In 1972 my dad bought a new construction 3 bedroom home for $44,000. Fully loaded CX-9s cost more than the home I grew up in.o_O I hate it! :rolleyes:
Thinkin' about getting an attractive black AWD Chevy Traverse that I CAN buy at the local dealer for just $34,500....but the back up camera/touch screen is just 7 inches and there is no blind spot monitoring system like I've enjoyed on my last two Mazda vehicles. The Chevy does have Android Auto and way more cargo space than a CX-9.
