#479 of 654 2013 Pathfinder SL w/ Premium Pkg
Dec 18, 2012 (10:17 am)
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.

Nice deal norcal. I too was looking at the JX having owned an EX35, but when we saw how much similar the Pathfinder's interior was to the JX, we started to rethink our decision.
I find it hard to find many Platinum Premiums with the color combo we want. Not too many have MSRPs over $40K.
So what exactly is the "all I can afford strategy"? Do tell.

Funny you mention colors being hard to find - the one we like the best (mocha stone) seems to have gone missing entirely... hmmm.....
FWIW we also looked at Toyota Highlanders - for some reason, the non-premium hybrid model isn't available.. only premium, which at first glance puts it at around $46,000.
Oddly, I'm also finding that for some reason, the listed prices on the various dealers' websites show HIGHER msrps than the Nissan site itself.... yikes.

LOL... I was quoted on November 24 for a Platinum Premium at $48,480! That's about $5K over MSRP. I didn't even respond.

Me - "All I can afford is up to 40K. It's my wife, you know how it is."
Dealer - "OK, how about 39.6K?"
Me - "OK."

#488 of 654 Bought 2013 Pathfinder SL in Texas
Dec 30, 2012 (7:39 pm)
Bought the 2013 Pathfinder 2 weeks ago in Houston Tx. Probably not the best deal you can get but here's what we got. We ended up paying $1000 over invoice.
Invoice Base: $31,424
Trailer Tow: $347
Floor mats: $152
Destination Fee: $825
Dealer Fees/Profit: $1000
Driveout was roughly $36,000
We financed with Nissan at 2.54% but they said the negotiated price included the $500 rebate. Invoice price on edmunds has fluctuated so I quoted the price that was listed at the time. The car they sold me had the crossbars on the roof rack already so didn't have to pay extra for it.
Don't forget to look for the $500 edmunds rebate if it's still available on this website that pops up as an ad.
