#101 of 719 Looking for base S model with just fold Seat Pkg in NJ at 23,500 - Rebate
Oct 21, 2003 (11:07 am)
It is my 1st post here.
I just bought SIENNA LE 8 Pass Pkg 7 for 26,500 after 1900 off MSRP.
The Supply situation has improved in 2-3 weeks.
Since I am now shopping for my brother for USED SIENNA, I saw one QUEST yesterday and liked FOLDABLE middle seats which no one has it now.
Simultaneously I heard about some REBATE coming next month which I believe is POSSIBLE because:
ON NISSAN WEBSITE they have special LEASE OFFER on model S with foldable seat pkg.
So if I can get about 2000 off MSRP on S model with seat pkg. at MSRP of 25,130 and 3000 rebate and if it costs me
FINALLY for maximum between 20,000 & 20,500 PLUS state taxes etc. I don't mind buying a new one instead of a used SIENNA.
DOES ANYONE ON THIS BOARD THINK IT IS POSSIBLE?
Thanks in advance for reply or email me please.

#103 of 719 To janwunchen about Deal in NJ & somerset nissan offer $1000 over Invoice
Oct 22, 2003 (8:01 am)
To mr. janwun chen Would you please post atleast the name of your dealership in NJ and if possible email me the name of salesperson.
Since yesterday I have started shopping so incase if REBATE rumors become TRUE which I believe is a POSSIBILITY because Nissan already
HAS attractive LEASE OFFER on their site for "S"model.
I also checked dealer sites and all of them have couple of vans in stock.
If I can get "S" Model finally for maximum of 20,500 after rebate with just + NY taxes , I will go for it and I am willing to wait till December.
HOWEVER, I got a call from Somerset Nissan , NJ
who offered me "S" for 23,892 about 1500 off MSRP.
THEIR OFFER ON "SL" & "SE" models is $1000 over factory Invoice On in-stock or Order van.
I hope rebate is offered because I would hate to buy USED van at so high prices.

Nissan was expecting to sell a big portion of their S and SL models of the Quest, while have only a select few buy the SE. From what I am seeing and experiencing, the SE is the biggest seller and the other two models aren't doing half as well. It would be logical to assume that if any rebates were to be offered, it would be for the two lower end models, and not the SE. Dodge does that quite often--sell the lower models on huge rebates while offering very little or not incentives for their highest end model. (Far be it from me to suggest that Dodge is like Nissan!)
#105 of 719 Great Buying experience-Smoke SL Pacific NW
Oct 25, 2003 (11:55 pm)
I just bought a Smoke SL here in Seattle for $500 over invoice, which is a good deal here. I don't understand how people get deals like $500 under invoice on such a new car. I got the last Smoke SL with the upgrade package in the entire state (I searched myself) and no dealer seems to have more than 4 or 5 on their lot at most. It didn't make sense to me that Nissan would offer a rebate on a car they didn't have many of (at least in my part of the country)
Anyway, it was the most pleasant and easiest car buying experience I have ever had, and I average one car per year or two. The internet manager at Campbell-Nelson Nissan was very straightforward, honest, easy-going (not pushy), pleasant (believe it or not), and gave me a very good deal (the best I could find here). If you don't want to waste hours haggling over $100 I would highly recommend them. Actually, after hours you probably wouldn't get the $100 anyway.
#106 of 719 Deal in Tampa
Oct 26, 2003 (11:21 am)
We purchased our 2004 Nissan Quest nearly one month ago at Courtesy Nissan in Tampa and was very pleased with the deal we received (2% over invoice). Professionalism and courtesy was extended by everyone at the dealership. We did not encounter high-pressure sales and they spent the time necessary to test drive and explain the vehicle to us. We interfaced primarily with the internet manager at Courtesy. Equally important is the time the dealership has taken after the sale to answer our questions and to ensure our satisfaction. We've received several follow-up calls from the dealership. KZ
#107 of 719 Great Deal in Northern VA
Oct 26, 2003 (5:55 pm)
I purchased a 2004 SE yesterday at Browns Nissan in Sterling. The Internet Manager at the dealership told us over the phone he would meet a price quoted by Carmax. So we drove Browns in Sterling, and they said pick your SE and we will do the deal.
The van we liked had DVD and running boards (which the Carmax one did not) so we offered to pay invoice for those options, and they said sold.
We paid $32,622 for an SE with seat package, single DVD, splash guards, and running boards. The only additional charge (not counting tax, tags, title) was a dealer prep fee of $220.
I would highly recommend this dealer. They stuck to their word and came through with a great deal.
Interestingly, Sheehy Nissan in Manasass had said they would match Carmax, but when we made the offer at the dealership, they only came down around $1500 off of MSRP. Their Internet Manager couldn't make the deal unlike the Brown's Internet Manager who had the juice to make the deal happen.

Quick follow up. Sheehy Nissan called back today and offered to sell me an SE at $500 over invoice, but they missed their chance.
#109 of 719 Another Deal in Tampa
Oct 27, 2003 (3:12 pm)
2004 SE w/DVD, Seat package, Cargo Cover, Mats, Splash guards - Smoke
Gave my best effort to get this van over the last month while staying in the immediate area. The best offer via "Fax Attack" was $800 over invoice + 499 Processing fee + transfer in from Jax. Needless to say I passed on that deal.
I then tried the Edmunds quote finder a couple of weeks later including Carsdirect and AutobyTel. I started getting calls out of the woodwork from several different dealerships in the area. The problem I was encountering was finding one in Smoke. My wife and I decided we could live with Silver, so I went to the dealership that had Silver closest to the configuration I wanted.
We went back and forth several times, with my sticking point that I was not willing to pay over invoice for a color we didn't even really want.
So guess what, the GM comes in to seal the deal and imagine this, I think we have a Smoke SE that just came in this morning. I just about laughed out loud. Anyway my final deal ended up being somewhere around $700 over invoice or there abouts including processing fees. I probably speny an extra $500 to get smoke, but my wife is happy.

That Bowke bloke <g> mentioned in another Quest discussion today that the Smoke SE is in high demand and very short supply.
My Quest is silver; very easy to keep looking clean, but glad to hear you got your first choice Congrats on the new ride!
