#41 of 679 Great experience buying my pathfinder.
Dec 17, 2004 (5:41 pm)
We just leased an 05 pathfinder SE with premium pkg, comfort pkg, and dvd player. We did the whole deal over the internet and the salesman drove it 4 hours to my house to complete the paper work. The MSRP was 31500 and the purchase price was 29250 or about 500 over invoice. I paid 1999 at lease signing and my total note with all fees is 367 per month. The dealership is Leblanc Nissan in south La. I highley recomend them. I also got 15k miles per year with my lease. This is my 3rd pathfinder lease and nissan has been great. They even waived my last 4 notes on my 02 pathfinder.

Got a 05 LE 4x4 w/ Nav for $35052 and then got them to throw in a DVD for $500. Drive off with tax and title was $38600. I feel like I got a decent deal. Let me know what you all think.

Looks like I got a nice deal ~= to davmc. Since this website was helpful, I'm just passing along my experience. Like davmc, had a lease due 5/05, got the postcard allowing early trade in, so decided to take a peek. Went xmas eve -- prob a good day to do this as i found out -- got '05 Path SE SuperBlack/Tan interior w/premium & custom packages + DVD (didnt need, but only one on the lot that fit other specs). 39 mos & 15k/yr for $750 down all in ($350 +400 1st payment) + $400/mo at Sloane Nissan in Devon, PA. 2nd Path lease from these guys -- solid shop!

Sounds like you got a good deal. I test drove the one and only Pathfinder they have at Mossy in o'side today. I'm trying to find one that best matches the lease program they have on the SE, either 4x2 or 4x4 (the 4x4s are hard to find in SoCal). Looking to get the SE in Canteen w/ Leather (another challenge). Has anyone else had a difficult time locating Pathfinders that fit into the lease offer they have till 1/3/05?
MSRPs are $29,900 (4x2) and $31,900 (4x4).

from the 3 dealers i talked to (following my fax), SE's with Prem & Custom packages & base LE's were in very short supply. One dealer mentioned an alloy wheel shortage (?), but another just said demand for those 2 were high. Also seemed like the deals on the LE's through 1/3/05 werent as compelling due to higher or lower residual values -- i forget -- just remembered that the theoretical thought of getting a base LE at a price similar to a multi-option SE (prem/ CSUT, DVD, Airbags, etc) was out of the question

I used nissan's web site (search dealer inventory). This helped me find the dealers that had the model I was looking for. I would then e-mail the dealers through the wed site and paste the lease special to the e-mail and wait for their reply. It took a while but 2 dealers came back with good offers. They even drove it 4 hours to my house and I met them one my lunch hour to complete the paper work on my kitchen table. ps I had to change my search zone several times as the web site only allows you to search 100 miles from a zip code. hope this helps

Does anyone have any actual Canadian purchase prices on any of the 05 Paths? I'm leaning towards the SE + premium package.
#48 of 679 Rattle noise in 05 Pathfinder
Jan 11, 2005 (2:09 pm)
Well I made the jump and bought a first year production vehicle. After my first week I'm experiencing a rattle noise in the engine upon acceleration around 2000 rpms. It'll be going in the shop this Thursday. I bought an silver SE for $500 over invoice. I really like it but can't believe it's already going in the shop. I'll update later. I've noticed a few very faint noises inside, we'll see how they develop . I just hope Nissan's service dept. treats me right.

If you could post your problem & the fix in our Nissan Pathfinder Owners: Problems & Solutions discussion, that would help other members who may be experiencing the same rattle.

I am now looking a 05 Pathfinder, SE with all options. Right now I have 1 dealer offering $100 under invoice. I am finding when I try to get over the internet pricing many dealers are hesitate to give me a quote. I am in the Chicagoland area. Any one have a good experience with the local dealers?
