#2332 of 2921 Bought a new 2009 LE AWD today
Apr 19, 2009 (5:48 pm)
So my wife and I purchased a new 2009 Murano LE AWD (black) today from Ira Nissan in Woburn, MA.
Price paid: $34,700 (w/o tax and title) 36,790 (w/tax and title) (both include $1k rebate)
Trade in: $8200 (2005 scion tc)
Also purchased the 6 yr, 70,000 Nissan preferred bumper to bumper warranty, wheel/key protection, and interior protection (we have a small child) for ~$2100
All in all I think we got a pretty good deal, especially in view of a previous poster's calculation that the best possible deal we could have negotiated was ~$36,200 (w/tax and title). The folks at IRA were generally very nice. We were only annoyed by two things: 1) we originally went to see a dealer demo (which I spent 2-3 days negotiating price over the phone), only to arrive at the dealership to find that the manager driving it did not want to sell it); and 2) the fact that we had to wait an eternity (~3 hours) after we came to a price agreement to actually get in the business office to sign the papers!.

I am seeing that others are getting better deals on the LE but it also seems that it includes the rebate. We want the 2.9% financing and understand we won't get the rebate if we take that instead. I was thinking that 1k below invoice was pretty good but is it? We haven't been out to see the vehicle yet, and no other dealers have been able to meet the price so I still "feel" like its a good deal but is it? I haven't dealt with Nissan before so I'm not familiar with how their financing works, tia.

I am getting a 2wd Nissan Murano SL with:
- tech package
- premium package
- leather package
- dual panel moonroof
- splash guards and
- floor mats
I checked it at Edmunds and the MSRP is $35,990 and the Invoice is $32,868.
After contacting several dealers, the lowest Out-The-Door price that i got was $32,900. That includes license, tax and title already.
Do you think this is a good deal? I am from Chicago

It is hard to tell if it is a good price since you added in the tax and title.
You need to post the sale price. I got almost the same SL in June. This was before all the crazy stuff. I got $1000 below invoice. Which was/is a good buy. So I would start with $1000 below invoice and work down from there.
So far after 11 months of ownership I have had no probems and been very happy with my 09 SL.

Remember that you can offer LOWER than the invoice price because the dealers also have something called "dealer holdback" which is an amount the manufacturer will credit back to the dealer after they've sold the car to cover advertising and other expenses to sell the car.
The Edmunds web site has a page that lists what percentage of the MSRP or Invoice price each manufacturer's dealer holdback amount is on all their cars.
On a new loaded Murano, the Nissan dealer holdback can be as much as $1000.
When I bought my SL Murano, I offered $500 below invoice (knowing the dealer holdback was around $900) and they didn't flinch (which means I should have offered even less!
On top of the dealer holdback, I think Nissan still has their $1000 cash back program going.

i read that the date the car was made can be found on a stick in the door? and does this at all correlate to how long the vehicle has been on the lot? ie it takes a month to get to the dealer so that should be taken off the date?
also a murano i was looking at today had 100% made in japan on the front windshield, including final assembly, but the window sticker said final assembly in LA. is there somewhere on the vehicle that says where its made? (nothing against LA

I have been researching Murano's now for a few months. I have been offered a 39 month lease 15K miles for $499.00 a month with $1k down includes everything. The car has the following:
2009 Murano SL without Nav.
- has leather package
- has premium package
- has dual panel moonroof
- has tech package.
The MSRP is $37,525
The selling price Is $34,291
The residual value is $19,888.25
The money factor is .00159
Does this sound like a good deal or could I do better? Maybe no money down? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe the market has changed but your discount off msrp should be at least $4500. Check other posts.
#2341 of 2921 2009 SL FWD + Premium
Apr 23, 2009 (3:25 pm)
I need your opinion on the following deal:
2009 SL 2WD with:
- Premium package
- Splash guards
- Floor mats
According to www.edmunds.com
MSRP = $31,255
Invoice = $28,769
Sale price = $26,456 before tax, title and DMV fees. This is ~ $2,300 below invoice and ~ $4,800 below MSRP.
Does it look like a good deal for New York City or I could do much better?
