Buying a 2016 Mazda CX-9, and saving $4000 off of MSRP.
Very easy and smooth experience with Jeremy (sales manager) at Murray Mazda. I was looking for a 2017 and decided on the 2016 since he provided a further discount on the price and on the interest rate. Would recommend them to others looking at a Mazda to purchase.
Buying a 2011 Mazda Mazda2, and saving $500 off of MSRP.
Asked a number of dealers for their best price. Some gave me what looked like terrific deals, but they all tried to jack up the price once they had my interest. The West Coast Mazda dealer gave me a competitive price and kept to his word: he did not try to change the offer when I came into the dealer in person. The final cost of the car was slightly below the CarCost Canada recommended price. More importantly I was dealt with honestly and fairly.

Array your base price/levies/add ons/taxes in an Excel spreadsheet; know your rock bottom and mid to high end price points based on 1% increments of mark-up before going to the dealership of your choice. Use the online quoting feature at another dealer's website to ask for a specific price based on 3% markup; get them to commit; then ask other dealer to beat it at 2%.
