#1163 of 2921 2006 Murano SE AWD - Trying Again
Jan 06, 2007 (3:36 pm)
Hi there -
Me again - I am new at this thanks for your patience.
Okay, I was offered $30315 for a 2006 SE AWD Murano. It comes with the sunroof package, splash guards and floor mats. It does NOT have the touring package. However, it did have the rear video camera (COOL!!!), the six CD player, bose stereo system and even a tape deck (who needs that?)
The offered included a $1000 rebate - which is calculated above.
He said he was giving me a total of $4750 off of MSRP (and was a nice guy - not pushy like most of them). It's at Berkeley Nissan and IS their last 2006.
Is this a good deal? And, given that I am ready to buy, any suggestions on what you would counter? Does anyone think I could get it for $28K or lower?

Don't forget..if you buy a 2006...the minute you turn on the ignition you are driving a one year old car that has depreciated >25%.
Consider that when negotiating a price.

Sounds like a real good deal to me...Below 28 might be pushing it...especially with them offering the $1K rebate.. Research the exact MSRP, you can do this on Edmunds...then see how much lower the 30315 is..see if he's telling you the truth...

First, thanks for BOTH comments - to you and the other guy. Good thgoughts and greatly appreciated.
Second - DUH! Thank you VERY much for asking me to do the research. It all gets a little overwhelming at times and sometimes the best advice is the simplest.
So, I DID, in fact, research MSRP. And, Edmunds says MSRP for this exact model is $35110. So, in fact, he IS giving me close to $4700 off MSRP. (It's not exact, but if I start quibbling over $45 in a $30,000 deal, then I'm being too stingy, and in any event, the fact is he's offering MORE than $4750 off of MSRP.)
I'm not sure how this plays into the other comment about depreciation, which is also a very good point.
But, at least I have a good base and know I am getting a decent deal. Now, I just need to decide:
if I want the murano (I am also looking at a RAV 4 and I know it's two ENTIRELY different animals - part of me feels like the Murano is too grown up for me at this stage and is the kind of car I should have later in life), and what to counter if I do counter.
I think you are right about $28K. That said, if I counter that and they come back at $29,000, I can jump on that.
Thanks again - very helpful.

Ya know.. ALL vehicles will have problems. I bought the Murano 1st year out. I love the way it drives. Price and LUX aside, Muranos are worth it.

Please can anyone tell me if i should settle for this price or hassle more? The manager was leaning on the $32,500.00 figure.

I also wanted to know if i should settle for a AWD Murano and what do u guys think about the VDC and TCS. I really don;t know if its worth the extra money in houston weather

I paid 32999 for the exact same model. I walked away content and relieved. The CVT is awesome. My only concern is what happens if it goes out... ie. Transmission problems...
Hell of a car! Love the Nav. We live in San Antonio, so the weather is roughly the same. We saved the extra 2k and stayed with the FWD...

Thanks for your reply tanthony66 i think i will also save the 2k and settle for the FWD, now the only question remains as to weather setter for the dealers extended warranty primarily due to the CVT tranny. They sell the warranty for 5 years and 60k miles for 1000 bucks. Let me know on that too if you have any idaea.
