What dealership? I'm seeing Essence fwd with roof and Nav in red in the continental US for $28,400-29,000 from a MSRP of $39-41, or about $11,000-12,000 off.

You can shop and compare to other dealerahips naton wide on a number of online for sale websites like cars com, autotrader, and cargurus.

The CX-5 will be a little smaller and not as quiet as the Envision as it is more luxury than sport. The Buick will have a longer standard warranty, offer free oil changes and tire rotations on the first two visits.

Mazda has only a 34% retention rate on returning customers or one of the worst amongst other automakers.

Drive the Buick first and then the Mazda and you'll see the differences. Supposedly the Mazda has a near-luxury interior and quality materials with a firmer, athletic drive.

Hey,
Thanks for the response. That price on the Envision is an otd price, so $30,003 + tt&l and fees brings it to $33600. The Mazda feels a little peppier and steering is sportier feeling, but it all seems so less luxurious compared to the Buick, but the Mazda is less expensive. One of the things I read was that the Mazda loses ~25% of its value in the first year, and that is depressing. I will check those sites and see if I can find an equal Buick for a lesser price. Thanks again for the advice.

All depends on how long you are going to own it before trading it in. You can see what new prices the dealerships are offering and then compare used prices on KBB.com or nada.com. The Envision hit the lots early summer 2016 so used prices are haven't dropped much. The domestics usually have thousands on the hood which basically negates Japanese residuals for over thr life of the car.

Earlier in thr month 2017 Premium l were advertised at $29,999 from $43K! The Premium l will have 2.0T with AWD, heated heats and steering wheel, NAV, and tri-zone climate control. Along with cross traffic alert for backing out of blind parking spots. All depends on what options you want.

Funny, I've been looking since October and I havent seen the Envisions this low till December. Whats even curiouser is that just about everyone is deep discounting except Ford. I have been watching the Edge also, and they only have 4500 of incentives.

December is one of best times of the year to buy. Dealers are adjusting inventories for next year's model and manufacturers are throwing cash on thr hood to make that room.

I guess I'd have to ask myself, "why is the Buick more" and conclude "you get what you pay for". Buick is synonymous with comfort and luxury. And, I know it's an old fashioned, long forgotten theory but I still believe in buying American. Yes, I know cars, materials and assembly are all intermingled these days but.......where do the profits go?
