#270 of 828 Titan crew cab LE or Dodge ram 1500
Feb 20, 2005 (6:38 pm)
I am trying to decide between these two trucks:
Nissan Titan LE crew Cab and Dodge Ram 1500 SLT
This is going to be my first truck and I appreciate any advice and insight on these trucks.
These are the best offers I have received on these 2 trucks in LA. I am still in the process of going to other dealerships in the area.
1.) 05 Nissan Titan LE Crew Cab:
TITAN LE 25,794.13 + TT&L, ALL REBATES applied
2.) Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 4.7 V8 (Not the Hemi)
The price on 2005 Dodge Ram quad cab SLT 4.7L v8 automatic transmission, Navigation, power sunroof, light group
Fleet Affiliate price $28559
Your price $27995
- 2500 rebate
- 1000 cfc
Final Price 24495

i would say go for the titan - especially with that price! also, you are getting a much more powerful engine and bigger towing capability than the 4.7 in the dodge.
my 2 cents
#272 of 828 Nissan Titan/F150: Looking for best So. Cal. price
Feb 21, 2005 (4:11 pm)
Need referral help finding a dealer with a clear-cut purchase formula on Nissan Titan/F150 in the Los Angeles/Orange County region.
Does it depend on "model" and options or can I work a formula of invoice price +/- so much?
Am SICK of the moving target pricing seems to be at dealerships. Have been trying to compare Titan and F150 and see what room there is in pricing and having a heck of a time.
I don't want to talk "payments" or trim levels, just want an "invoice price plus or minus so much" sort of formula based on well published MSRP and Invoice pricing.
Is the a trim package Nissan or Ford will partiuclarly deal on?

Yeah, some people just want to play that game and it bites. I just keep telling them - it isn't any of your business what the monthly payment is I can afford. Tell me the bottom line price and break it out (invoice, add-ons from manufacturer, add-ons from dealer if any, doc fee, tax, title and any other fees). If they don't do this, I walk and be sure to stop by the Managers office on the way out. What you are asking for isn't out of line.

as a salesperson (and internet manager) i say email your request to as many local dealerships as possible. some wont respond, some will give you the whole dog and pony game of come down and we'll make it worth your time, and others will give you their best price (for example, i always do $400 below invoice on all internet requests) go with the one that lists it all up front - print out the email, and go see the internet manager. best way to buy a car! if you have any other questions, i'd be happy to answer
best of luck!

If you wanna great deal, take a little trip to Carmax of White Marsh In Maryland. I saved 5000 bucks on my SE King Cab- loaded... I came down from NY to get it, and it was well worth it. They can do everything that one day- I showed up at 3 in the afternoon, and was driving home at 6pm. Great people, great prices, and tons of options to choose from.

Feb 23, 2005 (11:36 am)
Def. not... i just got that truck in Maryland yesterday for 24000- except no bed extender- but did have the full bed package otherwise.
granted prices are probably different in Hawaii... but i'd be like you gotta come way down.
#278 of 828 What Fees will Nissan charge?
Feb 23, 2005 (9:33 pm)
Curious on what fees I should expect when I buy from the dealer. Does Nissan charge an ad fee?
Documentation fee? And any other BS fee?
Should I avoid paying all these fees, and just ask the dealer what the final cost will be without the Tax/License charge?
Thanks for the help.
#279 of 828 Factory ordered mine
Feb 23, 2005 (11:10 pm)
I was looking for an '05, red alert, SE, 4x4, off road, big tow, utility bed, crew cab. Looking for this in Hawaii was not working, so I even covered all of southern Cal, not one like that. Decided to factory order and started calling the dealers in Hawaii, I will not deal with the Tony group ever again. They gave me a discount off the base price ($1500) and then wanted to charge full MSRP for all the options I wanted. They also tried to say the price before rebate could not be set until I took delivery, Nissan might change the price. King Nissan on the windward side gave me $1000 over invoice before any rebate when I take delivery. I also got a lot of help from the GM of Power Nissan Torrance. He helped me even though he knew he would not make the sale, I would recommend giving him a call if you are in SoCal. This will be the second vehicle I have factory ordered, takes a bit of time, but you get exactly what you want, no dealer add ons or options you don't really want. Will be delivered mid to late April.
