Its either take the $2500 rebate or the 1% financing, not both. According to dinkytown.com, taking the 1% financing option is the better option.
I got the dealer down to invoice cost on the 2004 LE Crew Cab. It is pretty much loaded, with:
BIG TOW PKG
NISSAN DVD MOBILE THEATER SYSTEM
UTILI-TRACK SLIDING BED EXTENDER
So if I do buy, it would be 1% financed at the $32,779 invoice price, so far. Since I would rather have the NAVIGATION instead of the DVD I am still looking. Don't think I will find a 2004 so I am also considering a 2005.
Also hoping that the rebates or APR incentive may get better closer toward the end of March.
Does anyone know if there is, or will be, an aftermarket NAV available for the Titan?
I have done my own tedious inventory searching thru the Nissan web-site. Man I think I may need therapy. At least I know whats out there close to my area.

I don't think you are going to have any problem finding a 2005 at or near invoice. Granted the rebate and the interest rate is not quite as good. However, you are going to sell this truck at some point and a 2005 is going to have a significantly better resale than a 2004. I think you may find the dealer is going to have some exceptional unpublished discounts for the rest of this month on the 2005 making it even more attractive.

The final price includes the rebate.
I believe by next month, the rebate will go as high as $2500 off for Nissan and Toyota because GM is aggressively marking off their SUVs and trucks. Competition is really heating up, as well as higher fuel cost. Titan SE CC should go for $22K by next month since Ford F150 SLT CC are advertised for $21.7K almost everywhere.
I was surprised to see that Tundra SR5 DoubleCab were on sale for $6K off!!
Now, I have to find a way to dump my 2000 Impala LS quickly!

So hvan3, you recommend waiting it out for better deals? Do you think that the dealers might offer lower financing rates also? It would be great if we could get both rebate and financing together. That would really sell some autos.
I can probably wait until May when my lease is up.

well the drive to a million sales event ends march 31, so why would nissan further lower incentives after that time? in reality, there is no way to determine what nissan is going to do with their incentives (i work at a nissan dealership, we find out the incentives when they are publicized to everyone) my bet, is nissan is going to push til march 31st, then rebates will stay the same unless gas SKYROCKETS in the summer (and even then they'll have to see how the market goes) or sales really plummet. chances are, if the incentives go up, it will be a month or two before the 06's are scheduled to come out.
its all a shot in the dark however, the only people who know anything are nissan corporate people!

If you get a 2005 you can get the NAV without having to get the DVD, its the way that they set it up. It really Makes me mad that they don't offer the tow-toned Sand/gray color anymore.

toyota won't do that big of a rebate no matter how much they need to do it. If and when they do "rebates" the call it customer cash and it is for a weekend or as long as a week.

Everything I see in the paper leads me to believe that big trucks will have a hard time moving out of the dealer lots because rising fuel cost. Get this, in Malibu, CA, (or was it Beverly Hills?), I heard premium unleaded went for $3.05 per gallon!
Anyway, the Drive to 1,000,0000 sale won't end just in March. Nissan will extend the sale and call it something else. $1500 rebate by Nissan is nothing to write home about. I"m pretty sure that all manufacturers will increase their rebates to get buyers back into their showrooms for large SUVs and trucks. Keep in mind, SUVs and trucks are the most profitable segment of their business. They can "afford" to give bigger rebates. IMO.

Perhaps you are correct if you gauge by dealership per capita. However, Southern Cal is the land of BMWs, MBs, Lexus, and etc. More cars and trucks are purchase in SC than in any other region in the nation. That is why majority of the car companies have their design studio/corporate HQs in SC..... Nissan, Toyota, Honda, Madza, Kia, Hunydai, Audi, and etc
It's cheaper to buy cars in SC due to stiff competition, however, it's expensive to drive the cars here with high insurance cost, emission cost, and higher fuel cost.
