I agree with your whole post. Nissan lacks the rep of Toyota and Honda, but they match or exceed their price. What was the 500 volume discount you were referring to?
We have dealers here still with 2007s. And I don't see when they are going to clear out the 2008s with the economic progressions. It is going to be a brutal sales month for Nissan (at least the minivans).

basically what Nissan did, was promise dealers 5000.00 dollars for each quest they sold during a time period as long as the dealership met its quota. The dealerships that participated, sold a lot of cars. The ones that did not, did not sell many cars.
While I noticed that cars were going considerably under the 3500 discount, I did not figure out the reason why until is was basically too late unless i wanted something that was absolutely loaded.
Should be interesting to see what Honda is going to do, my understanding is that it has a lot of product left (relatively speaking).

I just looked at the Nissan Quest sales numbers for September. They sold 410 minivans for the whole month, down nearly 83% from last year. I think it is pretty safe to say they will step up to move their remaining 08s. Or maybe they won't and dealers will just be holding them like some still are holding the 07s.

Again, in looking at the Quest sales number for October it isn't looking real great. While I didn't think they could do worse than 410 sales, they only managed 354 for the whole month, down nearly 79% from last year. While I did think it was possible they would step up on their incentives, they really haven't, and it is possible that most dealerships are cleaned out of their 08 Quests. So maybe things aren't so bad (at least for the ones who have cleared out their inventory), and things look discouraging for others.
Maybe those on the frontline have a different perspective.

So are Nissan likely to do another last ditch sales effort to clear off 2008's in remaining dealers lots? Or are those dealers out of luck at this point?
I have a dealer in my area with 4 or 5 '08s on the lot and I'd be tempted if I could get similar action to what others were getting towards the end of summer. I was also checking out the Mazda5 and they are getting pretty desperate with the pricing of that too locally... Seems if it isn't a Sienna or Odyssey and has sliding doors, the prices are being slashed.

I would not expect Nissan to go down to their August prices for the Quest...other vehicles, yes. Many dealers were able to clear their inventory back than, while others did not, and will likely be holding onto their product for a while.

I have a online quote for a Nissan Quest SE 3.5 with all the extras (nav, heated leather seats, DVD, Backup Camera) for $34,793
Do you think that we can talk them down anymore? What would you think a good deal would be. Oh and we are in WA State.

It looks like your a bit below invoice, even without considering the $2000 incentive. I would think that's pretty decent for a 2009, but it's been hard to follow the Quest pricing with the limited activity in this forum.
