Nissan Pathfinder, SUV
Feb 05, 2007 (4:21 pm)
I just bought a 2007 Pathfinder SE 2X4 in Avalanch White with Granite Interior. Options: SE Comfort Package, SE Premium Package, DVD Package, Splash Guards and Moonroof Wind Deflector. MSRP: $32,720. I paid $500 above Invoice: $30,448. I went to Nissan of Garder Grove here in So. California. I felt I got a fair deal. Love the Pathy. Just got out of a 2004 Toyota 4Runner V8 2X4 Sport Edition. I think the ride is just as smooth, the horsepower/MPG is comparable and the Pathy is more quiet.
#272 of 648 Help! Good starting price for a new 06 LE/DVD
Feb 12, 2007 (2:04 pm)
Not sure if I'm in the right forum..
Need a good starting offering price on a 06 Path LE w Dvd.Since its a new 06 still on the lot how much can I save if any?
Msrp is 38,500 with dvd, destination and not sure what else.
Salesman said could get ii it around 35. Seems high to me for an 06. Any advice on where to start and a good ball-park OTD price goal would be appreciated.

You will need to give a lot more details here for a good price. These vehicles have a ot of things to consider. When you say DVD do you mean bose? does it have the navigation system (adds a lot to the cost). Is it 4WD or two? Being an LE means a lot but it helps to specify the options such as power seats w/ memory? Leather? sunroof? running boards? body side moulding? floor mats? Side airbags? These all play into the equation. What I did is to determine the dealer cost with the options I got (Bose, driver power seat, sunroof , running boards, floor mats) and then deal from there. The way my dealer worked is to start with the MSRP and the repate ($500 at the time) and then just continue to increase the value of my trade. I had a 1997 suburban that needed transmission work (still drove okay) and AC work. Worth about $1500 at auction and the dealer gave me about $6000 in trade against the MSRP. It all depends on how they do thier bookwork. Do not buy any add ons like paint protectant, rust proofing or extended warranty (do AAA after 30k miles).

Go to kbb.com and here on edmunds and lookup the wholesale price(s). Average or observe the two to get wholesale price. This number is an average, meaning a considerable # of cars wholesaled for less than this. Don't know about the finance rate unless you applied at your credit union or bank and saw what a competitive rate is. Start at below wholesale and leave your cell play hard to get. (You really don't know how much they have in it regardless of what the book says)
As for the warranty and stuff thats your call.
#276 of 648 2007 Pathfinder SE Lease
Mar 01, 2007 (9:43 am)
I've been working with a few dealers on a Xterra SE lease and the numbers were too high. Yesterday one of the dealers came back with better numbers on a 2007 Pathfinder SE with comfort and premium pacakge.
39 Mo/12,000 Miles/$415 a month with nothing due at signing
I'm just beginning my research on the Pathfinder. I'm thinking of countering with $399.
I live in Ohio and have an excellent credit rating. Please let me know what you think.
Thanks in Advance!

Pathfinder with Factory DVD, Comfort, Premium, Floor Mats, Splash Guards, and Side Air Bags. $32354.00, price after tax and license is $34928.00. This seems high...here is the breakdown I received:
Base Price $28850.00
Floor mats $150.00
Side air $700.00
Splash Grd $140.00
Car_man! If I could have your opinion here that would be great. This is in WA (say 98074).
I also received a quote minus DVD and minus Premium BUT with an after market DVD system for $31291.00, OTD $33769.90. Is it about the same to get after market? Would affect the chance or decrease the value of leasing the vehicle? Is it possible to install DVD into a leased vehicle?

You want about 4500-6000 off a 34k MSRP pathfinder. See what you can work. I would not really want to start installing stuff into a leased vehicle but am not into that stuff either.
A rough rule of thumb for a good deal on a lease is to subtract $2000 or so from the advertised downpayment (or at least subtract 75% of the downpayment) and roll the rest into the 36 or so payments for little down. And stipulate you want 15000 mi/yr instead of 12000. (you don't want a lot down on a lease for a similar reason you don't want to pay 6 months apartment rent up front) This assumes good credit.
You may be able to get a good deal on a lease but usually not as they are designed to fleece payment buyers. (leases are mostly fleeces) Even for folks who take the business deduction, advertised lease deals are usually mediocre.
