What was your price before tax and tag? Also what options are on it?

I have a 2011 Quest LE with beige leather (white pearl exterior) and it still looks fantastic - even with the wear of 3 kids, carpool and a large dog after almost 40K miles. We were nervous about the beige interior, but would absolutely do it again. The car looks and feel extremely luxurious - exactly how a $44K minivan should. The only item that can rapidly show wear is the tan carpet floormats. I highly recommend using the Nissan all weather mats on all 3 rows to keep the van looking great. You will love the Quest LE. It's a unique, practical, reliable, and exceedingly luxurious van.

Thanks! That is really good to hear. I decided to take the plunge and have one on order. It is Titanium Beige with the beige interior. Do you put the all weather mats over the carpet or in place of the carpet mats?
I got the LE with the carpet mats, tow package, illuminated door kick plates and the splash guards. The dealer just called today and said my order would be in around July 2nd. This is a big move up from the original prediction of mid August.
Thanks for posting!

I did order an LE. I got a call that they were redirecting one from someone else's order so it would be here early and had everything on it just like I ordered. So I went to buy it today. Now I'm not so sure. Here is what I found:
- Dirty leather driver's seat
- Dirty steering wheel
- Scratched up drivers side door
- Deep gouges in the door well where the dealer installed the illuminated kick plates. They were not factory installed but instead installed by the dealer.
- Scratches on the passenger side
- Dirty carpet under the drivers left foot
- Layer of dirt/dust in the cup holders
- Paper scraps and misc. other things that look like residue from people using it under the floor mats
- Chrome in back might have the beginnings of a rust spot
- Manufactured in 10/12 according to the door sticker. Not just from the factory as I had been told
Somehow this had 9 miles on it?
That is the part I can't figure out. Is Nissan able to use these cars in Japan and then reset the odometer and sell them here? What I saw doesn't make sense to me as a new car. If I walk away I only lose the $500 deposit.
I wanted factory installation of my options and the dealer redirected a basic LE and then added my options on. Given the state of the car when I went to pick it up they don't seem to be very good at quality control so I'm not sure that I trust them having the options put on correctly. My options were the tow package, illuminated kick plates, splash guards and carpeted floor mats. They couldn't even put the floor mats in with any type of quality control because they just put them over trash and didn't even vacuum first.

I have bought my Titanium Beige LE. I loved the car so I reset my view and decided to view it not as an ordered car but one on the lot. The dealer also cleaned and polished it up really well.
MSRP 2013 LE = $45,210
Negotiated price = $37,000
Dealer handling charge = $549.75 (so the car price for people who's dealers don't charge this is equivalent to $37,549.75.)
+ local taxes = Out the door price of $40,693.66
Roof Rail Crossbars
Splash Guards (2-piece)
Tow Package, Class II
Carpeted Floor Mats
Illuminated Kick Plates (2-piece set)
Rear Bumper Protector
Chrome Fog Light Trim
Full-length Vinyl Cargo Protector
2 years of oil changes
7 yr/100K miles limited powertrain warranty
I did not order the dual panel moonroof package. Somehow I assumed the regular moonroof was standard and the second one was the package. I didn't really think the second one added value so didn't order it. I think if I knew it didn't have a moonroof at all without the package I probably would have ordered it. But since I don't use the moonroof that I have now I'm not sure if I would have gotten any value from it. I decided walking from the deal because of my mistake would have made me feel like heel as the Quests aren't popular in our area and the dealer likely would have not been able to sell the vehicle. On the good side I got the color and options I really wanted for what I felt was a fair and reasonable price.

How is your 2012 LE? We are being offered several right now for about $31k since the model is now nearly 2 years old .

What are the options are on the 2012 LE that is being offered at $31K? Do you have that approximate MSRP of the vehicles offered? Any financing deal with that price or is it a cash deal? Thanks for the info.

The car was pretty loaded but it also had 280 miles on it and some rear bumper cover damage. When I went back to Antwerpen Nissan to make the deal they raised the price about $4k, and I walked. I ended up with a Chevy Traverse.
