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 679 Bought 2013 Pathfinder SL in Texas
Dec 30, 2012 (6:39 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.

Bought a 2013 pathfinder SL at continental Nissan of countryside Illinois.
We dealt directly with the new car sales manager.
Doc fee 160
Not the best deal, but they gave me more for my trade than any other dealer.
The sales manager was easy to deal with, but the finance manager tried every trick in the book to rip me off.
They had a 599 accessory charge that I made them take off.
They tried charging a high interest rate but I did not allow it.
It eventually worked out in my favor.

On Christmas Eve, I bought a white 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum 4x4 with Premium package in Baltimore, MD;
-500 nmac at 2.89% rate
$39450 + taxes, tags, title and $200 dealer fee
Also included roof crossrails which msrp is $300
illuminated door kick-plates $275
mud flaps/protectors which are $150
and I made them throw in the all-weather rubber mats ($180), & full tank of gas ($60)
FWIW, I didn't buy it here but Carmax of white marsh, MD (which is a Nissan dealership) has the same exact model without the dealer added options I mentioned above for a no haggle price of $39,998. You should use that as your starting point for negotiations at a traditional dealership.
#491 of 679 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum
Jan 02, 2013 (10:04 pm)
Just picked up our 2013 Moonlight White Platinum! Had to travel 2hrs away to PA to get it as our local dealer in NJ was unable to locate the vehicle for us and let me hanging for over a week before telling me so which almost made me miss out on my Hurricane Sandy VPP offers.
MSRP 42,720 which includes splash guards, roof rail cross bars, carpeted floor mats and cargo package, and illuminated kick plates.
Price was $36499 which includes the $500 NMAC rebate.
OTD was 41,617 which includes 1,977+tax for extended warranties.
I believe I did pretty good. Just bought all weather mat from ebay for $111.50 shipped!
