Nissan Titan, Truck

I had just purchased the 2005 Titan LE here in Hawaii. I had a 2005 Tacoma on order but was getting tired of not being able to get the numerous options as they weren't being added just yet. I took a glance at the options of the Titan online (much better flow than toyota) and I was even able to know which dealer had the truck I was interested in.
I had done my research here and abroad and am very greatful for what I had found. I noticed that others were able to get 2-4K under the MSRP so that was my goal. I had a 2003 Taca DC for a trade in that was loaded with things I've added. I had a loan established from my credit union so I only needed to pic my truck.
My 13 y/o son and I took the Titan LE for a drive and bing-bada-boom, I was hooked. We went in for bargining. I told my son to pay attention closely. I was hoping that my working in psych and law enforcement field for over 10 years each would pay off.
The dealer was a bit smooth to not list all the options loaded on the truck there at the site but they were listed online at nissanusa.com, down to the VIN. I noticed that the dealer had the truck listed at 33K and it had the utility rack and big tow. So my goal was to get it to the range of 30K.
Having a pre-approved loan for 31K I had my buying power and they happily started the 4-square at 35+K with a lovely 5K down. I immediately said I have nothing to put down and am limited to 31K. They asked for 32K and I told them I appreciate their offer but already have a great truck and would shop further. They came back and said they could do 31K. I walked out with my keys and an awesome truck.
I was worried about the gas mileage as I love to see things go by in a blur but my taco was getting 16 mpg and I am now getting 'round 12-13 mpg.
They later told me they didn't charge me for the tow pkg, as I was asking if/why someone had opened the two front door panels. They said it came like that. I don't see sales folks as friends only business partners making a living. All seems well but I was tossed a bit when they told me about the two pkg after my asking about the door panels which were found out by my tint person I go to.
Anyone added the maintenance pkg? I've had the extended warranty for the taco and am getting full refund as I've not used it. I was going to apply it to the Titan in an extended warranty but may just put it towards the maintenance pkg instead, or just pocket it for a rainy day.

"Anyone added the maintenance pkg?"
You may have better luck asking that question in our Nissan Titan forum, which you can find by using the drop-down browsers at the left of the page.

I want a 4 dr. LE CC 4x4 with side-air bag package and floor mats. Edmunds says MSRP is $37,230, invoice of $33,656 and TMV of $35,439--all prices would be further reduced by the current $1,500 March rebate.
TMV includes $300 regional adjustment and all have $670 destination charge.
Seems like many of the prices discussed on this board are less than invoice?? Anyone have access to good prices in pacific northwest???
#289 of 828 2004 Titan LE
Mar 02, 2005 (11:30 pm)
One of our local dealers has 2 2004 Titan LE. They are marking it off by $8,000. While tempted, I decided to pass it up. I prefer 2005 SE.
In LA/OC, I've seen '05 SE going for $22.5k, while '05 F150 Supercrew XLT can be had for slightly under $22K. Also, '05 Rams Quad cab SLT can be had for under $21k.
decision, decision..... My top choice is Titan SE!

Does anyone have any recommended dealers for the best deal on such a truck? I'm seeing postings of XXX amount under invoice, etc. Best I've found is a little over invoice. Looking to get an SE RWD Crew Cab with Popular package (captain's seats). Would really appreciate any advice. I'm looking forward to becoming a new Titan owner! Thanks!

Went to the dealer, spent only 2 hours reading and signing documents.
Glad I did not have to bargin with the car salesman.
#293 of 828 2004 Titan Rebates?
Mar 04, 2005 (10:20 am)
I've checked with two Georgia dealers and gotten two different rebate figures. $2500 and $3000. And a few places on the internet quote $1500. What's the truth?

Thanks for the info. I'm on the verge of getting a Titan SE but can't seem to get the price just down to where I'm looking. You think there's really a chance they may have a mid-month incentive announcement? If so, any idea how much? Thanks!
