are you looking for 4x4 or 4x2? being as though i am in the northeast, the majority of our trucks are 4x4. i did a locate and found the following truck:
2005 Nissan Titan LE CC 4x4
Red Brawn Exterior
Graphite Titanium Interior
Off Road Package
Is that what you were looking for? Like I said, there is one out here on the east coast (a second one has way more options)

This was Almost there..I want a 4X2 with all those options you mentioned Except the 4x4, Off Road Package. Thanks so much for looking. I even called CHarleston, S.C. this morning and they had one with Sunroof and side airbags but steel interior. I have an appointment tomorrow to look at one with everything I want except its steel interior, so I may end up settling with that. COuld have been a worse settle. Still, a very beautiful vehicle..I'll let everyone know what happens..
But if that graphite/Tit appears from somewhere before tomorrow evening..Who knows...
#590 of 828 Atanta Titan Price LE 4x2 Crew Cab
Jul 28, 2005 (6:07 am)
I have been negotiating a deal here in the Atlanta area on a Titan LE Crew Cab(smoke) w/ Navigation, Big tow and Mats. I offered $32,690 out the door and after 4 days of talking they accepted.
Total invoice $32084
Doc Fee $599
Plus Taxes (6%) = $34643
Plus + title/lemon law =$34689
Less $2000 Rebate= $32689 (DOP)
Do any of you think this is an ok deal? This is the only smoke color truck around with the options I want and they know it. If this deal looks ok than I am going to go for it. Thanks for any input

Just picked up a 05 SE KC 4x2 in Galaxy Black and Steel last night w/ the following options:
-Utility Bed Package
-Utili-Track Sliding Bed Extender
$24,435 before TTL
$21,935 after $2500 rebate
I think i did about as good as I could do, and in my opinion it wasn't even that hard to get them down that low. Just used the info I found on this board.

Hey, if you're happy with it, then go for it! It doesn't matter what I think. But since you asked, if it were me, consider:
*the 599 doc fee is tantamount to first degree assault using a purchase order. They'll tell you it's non-negotiable, but I wouldn't pay more that 100-150 for the minimal amount of work that they do for it. They will say they can't reduce the fee; I say fine, then reduce the price of the truck by $499 (or whatever you're comfortable with). You have to ask yourself whether it's worth it to you to maybe lose this deal (and truck) over the money (then there's that pesky notion of being taken to the financial shed).
**Holdback is about 3% of invoice. That's about $960. My tactic (sometimes I'm successful, sometimes not) is to split that. So there's anohter $480.
If this were me, I'd go back and ask for $975 off this truck, but at a minimum, I'd ask for a reduction in that ludicrous doc fee. I've fallen in love with many trucks over the years, but would have fallen out of love for $500+++!!!
Bottom line, what do YOU want to do?

I had ran the numbers the way you talked about and this is how it seems to work out.
BASE INVOICE $29,242.00
DEALER PROFIT 3.00%
DESTINATION CHARGE $670.00
GWINNETT TAX 6.00%
DEALER FEES including title/lemon ect. ....$644.00
1) Base + Options = A $31,414.00
2) A – Dealer Holdback (3% OF TOTAL INVOICE) = B $30,471
3) B x [Percent of profit going to dealer] = C $914.57
4) B + C = D = $31,385
5) D + Destination Cost = Negotiated Selling Cost of Car (NSCC) $32,055
Drive out price (NSCC+Fees*Tax-Rebate) $32,878.55
$32,700 is what I have been offered. I hope I am not making a mistake. Thanks

FINALLY! After months of research and reviewing this forum. I picked up my 05 CC Titan LE and got what I wanted.
Red Brawn 4x2 Sunroof/Navigation/DVD/Side airbags(If I had a choice would not have taken for the extra money)/Tow Package/ XM radio and the seats are Steel interior. Only about 4 left in California/vegas/Nevada regions. NO Graphite/Tit interior with these options left.
Total: $35, 859 (Includes $100 over invoice) plus tax, license and $8.75 California tire fee. Grand Total $38,991.31 minus $2000 rebate OTD $36,991.31. I may have been able to haggle a few more hundred dollars because it was the end of the month. However, I knew this was the only one like this left in this region and I was tired of the research, plus I think it was pretty consistent of what others had paid and some have paid more. So I think it worked out. I am estactic(sp) Thanks for all your input.
One last question: Again what do you all think about getting the extended warranty? They tried like crazy to sell me that for 7yr/75,000 bumper to bumper for $1999 and if I had added it it would have worked out to maybe $20 more dollars a month but I was already about tapped as far as I wanted to go for this truck..I would like an extended warranty..Would be nice but what is the going rate? Was that a fair price for a warranty?
#595 of 828 I got my Nissan extended warranty for $1695
Jul 30, 2005 (1:38 pm)
..that was for a 7 year 100,000 mile warranty.
They were trying for an hour to sell me a lower warranty, and I kept balking, and then I surprised him when he offered this one not thinking that I would take it....
after 10 minutes of delay over the 5 year, I grabbed this one to his surprise...
#597 of 828 Employee Discount???
Aug 01, 2005 (6:47 pm)
I have been diligently shopping for a Titan for the past two and half months and these forums are a huge help. However, I just keep holding out for "that best deal". I really appreciate and consider remarks/post in this forum I wanted to get some feedback regarding emp. pricing...Its Aug.1 and one would think that Nissan would be incline to follow suit and join in on the employee offer. Any thoughts? Am I just spinning my wheels waiting for that deal? or is it an offer that just may be around the corner? Thanks in advance for your response.
