#18 of 654 Purchased an SE today
Sep 05, 2004 (7:48 am)
I just purchased a 2004 Pathfinder SE 4x2 in Atlanta with the following options:
- Popular Package (Radio: Bose AM/FM/Cassette/6 Disc CD Changer • Steering Wheel Mounted Audio Controls • Cargo Net • Retractable Rear Cargo Cover • Automatic Temperature Control) $800
- Floor Mats $61
- In-cabin microfilter $47
- Glacier Pearl (metallic silver) exterior with charcoal cloth interior $0
- Prices include $560 Destination Charge
MSRP Price = $28,500
Invoice Price = $26,365
WHAT I PAID:
Price Paid = $25,701.00
Dealer Fees = $ 499.00
Title & Reg = $ 47.00
5% tax = $ 1,312.35
Sub Total = $27,559.35
Cash Rebate = $ 2,500.00
Out The Door =$25,059.35
I got 3.59% interest through dealers finance department by purchasing a 60 month / 100,000 mile nissan warranty for $1,400 (really paying $1,000 more since by purchasing the nissan warranty they lowered the interest from 4.24% to 3.59%). I think I got a good deal.

i found a 2002 pathfinder SE for $21,900. is has 22k miles and is fully loaded. what is a reasonable offer for me to put in?

I was quoted $24,100 (after rebate) for a black 2004 Pathfinder SE 4x4 w/ Sirius Satellite radio installed. Quote was from a dealer in the Boston area. Three questions - (1) Does this sound like a good deal? (2) What additional costs should I expect to face to close the deal? (3) Is paying the extra $4,000 for a 2005 4Runner a better deal in the long run?

1. that seems to be a good deal i just bought my 2004 pathfinder SE 4x4 with popular package $26,000 out-of-door price. it should have been only $25,900 but life is not a walk in the park and there are dealers out there that will still try to cut your arms even things are already been straightened out.
anyways, everytime you cut a deal always have it on writing and bring your own calculator just to be sure on the numbers.
2. additional costs are documentation fees, tax and titles. the $26K that i got covers all of the added stuff.
3. we been on the same dilemma. if you got $4K lying around go for the 4runner, imo. but next best thing for me and wife without skipping meals is the pathfinder.

Thanks so much for the reply. I am likely going with the Pathfinder. I will post a report after I close the deal with a detailed accounting of costs. And on a final note, I had written my original message before I test drove both cars and I much prefer the Pathfinder to the 4Runner! A nice surprise!

We went looking for an 05 Pathfinder and while there were told of the deals on the 2004s.
We Test drove an 04 SE and then an 05 XE and the difference was astounding in the 2005.
Ride quality was smoother, much quieter, better interior, more features, and we like the new design as well.
Even with the offered $3,200 back on the 04,
We picked up a 2005 Pathfinder XE in Super Black with minimal options, as the Base XE is so totally loaded for a base trim, you don't need them..
Moving to the SE gives you so little for the $1000+ extra, it made no sense to me.. With the SE you get Compass / Temp gauge, Power driver Seat, ugly interior IMO and 70 series tires vs the 75's in the XE. Both XE and SE have the same rims.
There were only maybe a dozen 05's in the Central FL area only 2 XE's and No SE's, so bargaining power was minimal. Lots of LE's though
MSRP with options was $25,780 Dealer cost with all the options was $24,122 and we paid $25K even. Basically $800 or so over invoice.. Also got 700 over KBB for the trade in so we are pretty happy having one of the first baby Armadas.
Super Black looks Sweet on that big truck..
So now we are a 2 Nissan Family.
2002 Frontier and 2005 Pathfinder

Would you mind sharing your dealer experience in the central florida area?
#25 of 654 05 LE Platinum
Nov 01, 2004 (8:24 pm)
All the bells and whistles make this the most luxurious on'off vehicle out there. The NAV and DVD were not a huge deal to me until I bought the truck.... I AM SO GLAD I got those options...! The nav is brilliant- even finds restauants by cuisine! It's fantastic.... and the DVD with the infrred headphones are great. Can even run the iPod through the sound system... This thing is 100%. I was looking at Infiniti FX for months.... saw the Pathfinder and bought same day!
Got it for about $900 under MSRP.
