#304 of 828 Rebates vs Financing Option
Mar 13, 2005 (7:01 pm)
I will be in the market to buy Titan in May but if I can get a good deal I will before then.
I was wondering if I want to finance a Titan thru Nissan at 1% if I would have to do so at full MSRP? Would it be worthwhile to finance thru another venue to take advantage of the rebates offers? If so where have you heard is a good place to finance?
So far the best price I am being offered for a 2005 SE CC with:
ROCKFORD FOSGATE PKG W/PWR BENCH
SIDE-AIRBAG PKG W/VDC
UTILITY BED PKG
UNDER SEAT STORAGE BIN
UTILI-TRACK SLIDING BED DIVIDER
is MSRP of $33210 and an internet price of $29166.47. This includes the rebates. Can I do better than this or is that a fair deal? I live in the New Orleans area and we have about 10 dealers in the area.
Dealer says the side air bags are very rare in a Titan CC and they might have to special order the truck. Has anyone else heard this?
I'd be willing to drive to Texas, H-Town or Big-D for a better deal if neccesary.
Thank you for your input.

I think you can get a better deal here in Southern California. Are you willing to travel for a 'good deal'?

I think I saw an ad in our local paper, a LE crew cab can be bought for $27,500.

I have recieved a quote from a Bob Howard Nissan here in oklahoma city.
2005 Titan SE Crew cab with some options.
Msrp is 34296.00
Quote is 30400.00
Where should I start my negotiating? I would like to end up paying somewhere around 28000.00 Is this realistic?
thanks for your response

Offer $29,500 and be firm. Be ready to walk if he says no. The higher the MSRP, the more profit the dealer gets. Keep in mind that Nissan is already offering $1500 rebate. The dealer should at least kick in $3000 off.
Also, since it's near month end, try dealing with the fleet manager. He's more flexible than the sales manager.

There was rumor that if Nissan's million vehicle campaign wasn't where they wanted to be at this point in time, they'd possibly raise the incentives. Has anyone heard? I'm looking to get a Titan some time this month and was wanting to see if I should hold out or go ahead and take the dive. Appreciate anyone's thoughts...

Hold out. With rising gasoline prices, big SUV and P/U sales have slowed this month. Once we inched closer towards summer, gasoline could be $3.00!!
In my neck of the woods, Tundra Access Cabs are being marked off $5000.

there is a website that you can go to for cacluating yours rebate vs. low interest financing.
I use it to tell if which one would be a better deal. Plus, pay retail if you want, but i wouldn't pay more than Invoice. I might even go as far as 500-800 dollars below invoice +rebates. But that is what I would be aiming for. Hope this helps

That helps alot! I greatly appreciate it. The best deal I'm being quoted is $500 over invoice, but that's to bring the specific truck I'm looking for in. Haven't found one on the lot I'm looking for (SE Crew 4x2, Red Brawn with just Pop. Package Captains and Utilty bed package). All the quotes I've been given are all around 400-500 over invoice. I'll keep pushing back though. Thanks!

Yogibm1-That is a great site, thanks! Lets you look at everything at home on the computer screen without the BS pressure at a dealership.
I think I found my truck at a local dealer in my area, although it is a LE 2004 Titan. My best quote from this dealer is at invoice, before the 2500 rebate. However, they do have a 1% APR rate for the 2004 Titan as well.
Should I try to get them down even more than invoice since its last years 2004 model? Or is that a fair deal?
