#1997 of 2921 October Murano Price Hike
Oct 07, 2008 (5:23 am)
Interestingly, it seems like prices for 2009 Muranos have gone up in the last couple weeks. The offers I see on Web sites and on carmax.com are much higher than they were in September. What's odd is that Murano sales were down AGAIN according to Nissan, almost 16% down from September 2007. And, there no no rebates or incentives for Muranos right now (Nissan is offering incentives for every other model except the Murano).
Has anyone heard anything that might explain this?

I just bought an SL AWD last week with premium, leather, tech. Tinted Bronze/black leather. I love it. I used the VPP discount and the dealer honored a quote he gave me in Sept even tho I purchased in Oct. They said Muranos WERE selling, so there were no rebates, but if you look at the dealer inventories on the nissanusa website, there are a lot of them out there -- some even at the old price before Nissan increased the base and destination charges over the summer. I read the same thing you did on the sales being down and hoped for a rebate this month. Nissan is offering .9% financing for 36 months this month. With the VPP discount, I got an extra .5% off, so am financing at .4%. I was going to pay cash, but that rate was too good. I found a calculator online that compared paying cash with financing and the low finance rate with a rebate. Even tho there was no rebate, I used $1000 rebate just to compare and the low finance rate worked better for me, so I'm happy. But I agree with you -- it makes no sense not to have a rebate on the Murano.
#1999 of 2921 Extended Warranty on 2009 Murano
Oct 08, 2008 (8:15 am)
I purchased my Murano last week (SL AWD, Leather, Tech, Premium) and the dealer gave me a week to decide on the extended warranty. I never got one in the past, but do realize there are a lot more electronic components that can go bad in this newer model. I'm assuming I will keep the car beyond the 3 yr warranty. I drive less that 7K miles/year. Any advice on what level I should consider? No navi or moonroof, but they suggested the Gold Preferred. Is it true I have to sign up within 7 days of purchace? I actually was so disctracted with the new car, I forgot and now I only have one day left to decide! Or do I??????

What part of the country are you in? What price did you end up paying (relative to invoice)? I'm not familiar with the extended warranty regulations so I can't comment on that...sorry.

Quickly contact a Credit Union. They offer much better extended warranties for cars. Got my 7 year/70K mile gold level warranty w/$50 deductible for just $550....well below what the dealership wanted for its warranty. I never buy extended warranties...but like you...felt that will all the added tech on this vehicle it would be a good item to have.

I'm not sure if your quoted price includes freight or not, but according to Edmunds.com, here is the invoice price for the car you described:
2009 Murano SL 2WD $26,184
Premium package $867

This forum has been fairly helpful to me by going through experiences and I just wanted to share that I too have gone through and purchased my 2009 SL AWD (Merlot).
To summarize, it seems that the Mid-west, West coast are the best places for deals on a Murano. The tri-state area dealers are sticking with their quotes and the best you end up getting is approx. $800-900 below invoice unlike the rest of our brethren who seem to walking away with as much as $3000 below invoice!
I shall be sticking around if anyone wants to ping me on my experiences in NJ. I eventually made my deal through a dealer-partner of CarsDirect.com in Jersey City, NJ.

Just bought a new 2009 Murano SL AWD with premium package, moonroof, leather, floor mats, and splash guards. $ MSRP 34,240 including freight--- out the door for $ 29266 + 152 doc fee which is standard in Illinois. Got 3.9% 60 month loan from Nissan and free oil changes every 3750K for first three years. Best deal for me by far in the area --- and I checked. Sapphire blue with beige interior. And the dealer has complimentary candy, coffee, chips, muffins, soda and hdtv. I'm loosening my belt a notch as I write.
