Nissan Frontier, Truck

I live in Spokane, Wa. We have 3dealers that sell Nissan Frontiers. Two in Spokane and one in Post Falls Idaho 22miles away. I sent E-mails to all three about a new Frontier, only Midway Nissan, in Post falls Idaho showed any real interest in helping me. I then sent a e-mail that I was interested in a Frontier, at dealer invoice and that I would apply the 1000.00 rebate to buy for 1000.00 under dealer invoice. They sent a e-mail back saying that would be fine and the deal was done. Went there test drove three trucks and bought a 2005 se 4x4 6sp. KK Bed liner and caps. floor mats and filter. 19,600.00 plus tax and license.Very professional. Sure was a lot different then the last time I bought a truck which was in 1993 a Mazda 2600 4x4. This was a much better experience. The deal was done before I left the house and could conentrate on test driving, I would try to buy this way again.

with tow hitch, stripes, rack, floormats and microfilter. $24,150. This includes the $1000 rebate that I saved for the end of negotiations. I worked for weeks trying to get quotes from dealers in Tulsa, Little Rock, Springfield and other places and could get anything over the phone or email lower than 26,000. I then heard about Sams Club auto program and went to their website and plugged in my information. Within hours, I got an email from my local dealer telling me that the Sams program is for $100 over invoice. We started negotiating there.
Great experience and I'm happy with my price. I would be interested to hear from those here if you think it was a good deal, I'm certainly pleased until convinced otherwise.
Thanks to everybody here whose posts I read for months and months prior to actually buying my Frontier. Your advice and experience was invaluable.

My hubby is an active duty officer currently in Iraq till Dec; I want a good deal on a truck for him. He LOVED his 2003 Toyota Tundra w/ SR5 and TRD sport. But we had a lot of equidy and such, so we sold it and my odyssey to pay cash for my car. So we want a CHEAP payment.
My mom saw an add in a Conway, Arkansas paper for Superior Nissan for $12,570 for an XE king cab with perfered pkg, floor mats, and bedliner with rails.
The msrp is $18,200.
- $3,500 dealer cash
- $1,000 rebate
- $1,000 if you trade a nissan in (I don't have)
so for me it's $13,570 "26 at this price"
So my mom goes to the dealer (I'm in NC near fort bragg), and it's the same salesman who sold her FIVE honda's!!!
He said it's for real...plus
8k off msrp for "any" titan...
not a bad deal??
I tried to e-mail several dealers here in NC, and one wrote back like I was dumb saying was it a "used 04' ".. Please, I'm not stupid.. ofcourse it's NOT!
It's a NEW 05 not used, not a dealer, etc...
This is a good deal...does ANYone know how I'd get a truck from Ark to NC??
When people buy on e-bay and such, don't places ship for you for like $300??
that way no miles are on it???
I have 3 small kids ages 6,5 and 2.5 so I can't go get it...
And is this not a rockin' deal?? I think so...
My hubby also likes the tacoma pre runner. but they are NOT bending well on price...even for a TFS customer...

Yes I can confirm the previous post about Nissan in Conway, Arkansas.
I recently bought a King Cab SE with Power Package, Floor Mats and Bedliner for $17,090. I added a tow package for $450 and extended warranty for $995. My payment on a five year loan is $360.
I asked them how they can sell this truck so cheap. They said that the only way they make money on the deal is if the buyer has a trade-in (which I did not). I did not trade in my 97 nissan truck since it had 208,000 miles on it . I figured I would just keep it and drive it some to keep the miles off my new one .

Ya, it is cheap. I passed on it though; just sit till Dec when my hubby returns, while we are moving back to Conway after he gets out, that is about 8-9 months and the drive back is about 950 miles. Plus it had 267 mi on a new truck. And if you take all the rebates that get it to $13,570 for an XE King Cab, then you have to finance w/ nissan motor corp; told the interest rate was 5.9% which is ok, too high really, and it was 8.44%! I nearly FELL OVER! Seems the finace co is trying to make some money back! So I'll wait, nearer to end of year they'll do rebates and apr's.. Plus we are looking at a tacoma too...not sure which.. Prob better if he drives them both and figures it out; kind of scary buying sight unsean.
We'll my mom went to see it, said it was fine. I think the apr % is too high and I have PERFECT credit...

My interest rate was 6.4% and when I got the ext warranty it dropped it to 5.69%. Had the truck for a week now and I love it
Welcome back to Conway (when you get here)
#93 of 411 Is this a reasonable deal? Please advise.
Aug 15, 2005 (11:38 am)
I've been talking with a dealer about an SE 4X4 6spd, and his first offer is 2% above inv
and then applying the 1000 cash back. However, because he has to "dealer trade" for
the truck that I want, he is quoting 400-600 to truck it over from the other dealer. This seems like BS.

I was told the same thing by my dealer when they did not have exact color I wanted. You could call some other dealers and see if they have what you want. They will probably give you same deal as the original dealer (minus the 400-600).

Dealer in Bremerton, Washington will sell new Frontier for $500.00 under invoice , give you the $1000.00 rebate and get the Frontier you want in the area for $0. Also if we had enough owners or prospective buyers sending E-Mails to webmasternissanusa.com maybe we could get NISMO to offer a dual exhaust kit for V-6 Frontier.

Turner is my local dealer also. have you had any problems with the service department? i'm asking because i'm choosing between the tacoma 4 cyl 5spd or the frontier 4 cyl 5 spd. i'm concerned about the quality of the local service departments for troubleshooting and support of the vehicle.
