Nissan Armada, SUV

I just purchased a silver 2008 Armada LE 4X2. It has the technology package, premium package, floor/cargo mats, cargo tray, and cargo net. The out the door price with tax and license was $40,443. I am in the Los Angeles area and the sales tax was $3,243 (7.75%) and license/registration/tire fee/smog abatement fees were a total of $345.
The dealer was West Covina Nissan. I did all the negotiation over the phone and internet with the internet department. I walked in took a quick test drive and bought the vehicle. Unfortunately with the President's Day sale they had going they were very busy and it still took us about 4 hours to get out the door.
It seems like a nice vehicle, but it is for my wife. This forum gave me some good information, so I wanted to pass along what I was able to get done. Hope this is helpful to all you out there looking to buy.

Just purchased a new 08 Armada for 28,5k. MSRP was well over 37,7. Fantastic vehicle. Purchased from Trophy Nissan in Mesquite and love it.

Looking at working on an SE or LE over the weekend.
I know the rebate is $4500 here in Texas -- what should I expect

Looked at an LE today -we really like it but when I test drove it I Noticed the Odometer at 1600 miles! How unusual is this?! IF we decide to buy how much additional compensation should i get for the excess miles!

I would expect to pay $9000 or more under MSRP. Easily 4k under invoice.

My goal is 10-11K under MSRP-- but your figure of 4K under invoice???? Where would this come from- dealer holdback is less than$1K and incentives maybe another 1K
Also I was considering asking for the AAA rate of 52 cents per mile for the 1600 miles already on the vehicle or an additional $832 that is fair and should be after any other negotiation-- If the vehicle had less than 200 miles I would understand but at 1600 someone has used this as a demonstrator or a service loaner vehicle - unless they drove the thing across country

Do you plan to keep this vehicle for a good long time? I ask b/c unless I was getting a steal (14-15K under MSRP), I would not buy a truck that was broken in by somebody else who has no ownership stake in the vehicle. At the very least, I want would a sweet deal and get a free extended warranty.

I do plan on keeping this vehicle a while- I certainly think the free extended warranty is a great suggestion- For a dealer to sell a vehicle 14-15K under MSRP--- Have you ever heard of anyone getting a vehicle this cheap?
