What is this discussion about?
Nissan Pathfinder, SUV
Dec 16, 2012 (1:08 pm)
After lots of research and initially thinking JX, I bought:
2013 Pathfinder Platinum
Black on black
Price Paid: $39,600.
This included application of my $500 NMAC cash for Nissan finance.
The car is so luxurious I could not justify 10K more for a JX. I can use regular fuel, 1MPG better (I think), and more headroom in 3rd row. Only thing I miss/want is HID lights.
Negotiated 7 Year 120K Nissan Preferred Gold warranty with no deductible for $2300.
Good luck everybody!

Nice! Thanks - very helpful. I wasn't up to considering warranty yet.
What's the usual cost for the extended warranty?

It looks to me like you got a great deal and price. How did you do it and where is the dealer (state and name please.)
I checked Edmunds and it looks like you got a car for less than invoice ($40,593) wth an MSRP at $44,495. Your cost of $39,600 is a little less than 1000 UNDER invoice.
I'll try for a similar deal when the local dealers start getting some Platinum models in. I want just the plain Platinum without any other add ons.

Bought the car in Stockton, CA. Simply said I couldn't pay over 40k, they said ok. My friend Harris taught me this trick and it worked!

Is this an OTD price or do we need to add TTL to the $39,600?
I'm seeing a $36.5-37K OTD for SL+Premium.

This was selling price with destination minus 500 NMAC. Tax and license were extra.

I totally agree on the Infiniti JX upcharge not being worth it. And I love Inifiniti! A fully loaded Pathfinder is the same exact vehicle for $8-$10k less.
After weeks of negotiating online with 3-4 Nissan dealers in my area (Chicago), I finally closed on a purchase.
2013 Pathfinder SL
Illuminated kick plates
MSRP $40,470 and I paid $36,200. This includes $500 captive cash for financing through Nissan.

Has anyone gotten any good deals on a new 2012 Pathfinder? My local dealer still has 5 Silver editions and 1 LE. I'm wondering what kind of price I can negotiate now at the end of the year.

No my purchase was $36,200 + TTL. OTD price was a hair over $39k.
Comparing OTD pricing is difficult since sales tax rates vary from state to state and even city to city. I bought in Chicago, which has both a City and Cook County supplemental tax -- total sales tax is around 10%. Ouch! But I realize this is just part of where I live. Would my car have been "cheaper" in New Hampshire? Sure, but I have chosen not to live in New Hampshire.
Title and doc fees also vary state to state, though this is a much smaller portion of the purchase -- a couple hundred bucks max.
