Test drove the 2013 on Friday night and loved it. I'm in Chicago, and the dealer quoted me $35,200 + ttl for the SL 4x4, with cross bars and the cargo package. From what I'm reading here that seems like an okay deal (not the best, far from the worst). I've asked for an updated quote including the Premium package -- my wife and I LOVED the panoramic rear moonroof. Haven't heard back yet but am hoping they'll get hungry for my business and price aggressively. TrueCar.com suggests this configuration is worth $37k but I'm hoping they'll be inside of that number. Am I being realistic?

Let us know what dealer is quoting for SL with premium package. The price that dealer quoted you for the Base SL should be the price i have got from couple of dealers for 4x4 SL with premium package.
Check this car out. It is not 4x4 but to compensate for 4x4 it has Rear Seat navigation. MSRP is $40470. This is jus a internet price. You can still haggle more on this price. Hope this helps.

Thanks ucd. This is very helpful.
The link you sent looks to be a similar configuration. This SL has the headrest DVDs installed but does not have navigation, which is only available in the Platinum model. The DVD is an ~$1,800 (MSRP) add-on so it seems your dealer is basically throwing that in for "free" on top of the $35,200 I was quoted. Though I hadn't haggled on my offer yet, either.
I'm being told here in Chicago that new stock is hard to come by and that customers are putting deposits down well before cars are delivered -- especially for the SL with Premium package. Probably just salesmanship but we'll see. I'm still hopeful I can get what I want for under $37k.

I received my first quote last night for a 4WD SL with Premium package, $36,700 + ttl. This is $1,500 over the base SL (no Premium), which seems to be about a $1,000 discount on the Premium package itself. That said, the dealer does not have any SL-Premiums in stock and isn't sure when he'll be getting any. So I'm not sure if this is just a pricing gimmick to get me into the dealership.
I will clearly try and haggle downward, but $36,700 seems like a nice starting point given MSRP of $40k+ for this configuration.

We like this vehicle - can anyone comment on price paid?

bluechunks, I would think you could get your Platinum w/ Premium at or around invoice.
I just received another competing quote on an SL w/ Premium package plus cross bars, splash guards, floor mat set and illuminated kick plates: $36,000 + ttl. This is $4,000+ off MSRP and $1,200 below invoice, and requires that I finance through Nissan USA. I'm sure they'll make up a little bit by charging a higher loan rate than market (their first quote is 2.99%) but I still feel this is a great starting point. I'm told that if I finance elsewhere the purchase price will increase $500 -- so it's an interest rate tradeoff.

This is helpful & gives us something to go on should we decide on the Pathfinder. We saw the $500 discount for financing with NMCA too.
#472 of 648 Nissan vs. Infiniti

Has anyone compared the Nissan 2013 Pathfinder Platinum vs. the Infiniti JX35? Just comparing on paper, the Nissan looks to be about $7,000 less costly for the same features. I can't physically compare since local dealers still don't have a Platinum in stock.
Would like very much to hear from anyone who has driven both and their opinion.
