Nissan Pathfinder, SUV
#238 of 679 Just bought a nissan SE 4WD '06
Aug 18, 2006 (5:40 am)
I just bought pathfinder. I paid approximately $27,500 plus ttl. this price includes a trade of my 1997 Suburban SLT 4WD. The trade offer was $6000. Now you can check edmonds trade value on a 1997 suburban I get $2800 to $3819 considering that my suburban was somewhat dirty inside although no fraying or tearing. It had the check engine light on for a problem with the transmission, the air did not work and some rust was showing at the bottoms of the doors. I figure it would be worth $2500 at auction (or less) given its 10mpg city. So I'd say I got a discount of $4000 off the sticker price of $33,500 for $29,500. I think invoice is $29.7k plus destination of $605 for total invoice pricing of $30.3K. I'd then argue that I bought this car at about $800 below invoice. We can argue all day about the true value of my trade in but after paying about $15k for the suburban and driving it for 57 months, I think it owes me nothing. (had to install radiator/2 sets tires/intake gasket/4 complete brakes -drums rotors pads/replacement headlights).
I figure that was a smoking deal.
Depends how you rate it too I get 1 year of free service including 3 oil changes plus tire rotations and next years inspection. All tolled probably a $100 value but the best thing is the treatment with a ride home and possibly a loaner car if needed.

#240 of 679 Tampa, FL Pathfinder S model Lease Deal
Sep 04, 2006 (6:54 pm)
Bought this Aug 31st around 11:30 at night.
Got a Silverton Blue 2006 Pathfinder for $23K. After all said and done, the lease came out to be 39months, 15K miles per year, $512 down (which included first months payment), $289 a month, they threw in the pinstriping as well.
This car is going to work out great for my family. Just to add for those who done know, Nissan does not charge any drop-off charges when you return the vehicle.
I am very happy with Nissan so far with the safety features they include standard and small things like no drop-off charges at the end of the lease (besides tires, damage, etc.)
#241 of 679 2006 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4x4
Sep 13, 2006 (8:08 pm)
Took me 3 days to send, responde, negotiate with 9 dealers. Come down to:
2006 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4x4
All-Season Rubber Floor Mats
Cargo Area Protectiong
Red Brawn Pearl
OTD: $32,100 (INCLUDED 6%PA Tax, $141 DMV fees)
Not sure if this is a good deal, since the Dealer included the $500 Rebate in the price because I told them I would go with my Credit Union 5.9% instead of going with Nissan's 5% for 60 months.
Should I take delivery?

Going with my experience in just buying my car I think you may have done well if your rax is included. I figure the tax to be around $1800 or so depending on a trade or clean deal. With The invoice at about $33 k for your LE Model getting it for about $30,000 is a very good deal to me. Again that is if all you say it all there is. No trade??
I was happy with my SE-sunroof & bose for about 800 under invoice after the trade and discounts were adjusted into the mix.

Thank you so much for your response. Just want to confirm, that this is a clean deal. and this is around $30,041 plus tax and tag. This is a SE, not a LE btw.

You can look back in this thread to see what I paid. My dealer basically started at the sticker price and just kept increasing my trade-in. I had a trade in that comes back at aroud $3000 or less as the engine light was on and the ABS light too. He ended at about $6500 trade. I had a SE like yours but no leather. No rubber mats. No cargo protector. I did get running boards. body side moulding and the other stuff you got like bose CD and power driver seat. I paid about $27k with the trade in. I figure that if I can get at least $500 to $1000 under invoice on a nissan it is good. Remember this is not a Chevy with the hugh markups. Also remember that some of the added items like the cargo net and floormats are really cheap for them but have steep prices.

Just went back and reread my earlier post. I forgot how much I had paid. It sounds like you essentially got yours for what I paid (within $500) and you got the leather too. (I voted for leather my wife wanted cloth-guess who drives the car and won!) So I think you did well. I felt that when we left the dealer he was just a bit too happy.

I leased my 2005 Pathfinder LE 4x4 in December 2005. I dont know what the vehcile price is off hand but my payments are $382/month 39 month lease 12K miles per year(including 6% sales tax) with $2500 down. My LE is loaded with everything except Navi. It was a total impulse buy, they got me to the price I wanted on the vehicle I wanted and I walked out with the car. I did no shopping around at all. I possibly could have gotten a better price with a little shopping, but I am happy with my deal.
