#488 of 648 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.

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.

Jan 02, 2013 (11:04 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!

O, and don't forget the $500 edmunds rebate for the pathfinder!

Was this FWD or 4x4? Premium package?

That is about $1100 below dealer invoice by my calculations. Was that a VPP price? What dealer did you go to?
Carmax has one identically equipped for $40,518 today.
Thanks for the info. Go Ravens!

This was for a Platinum 4x4. No Premium package, just the standard addons I listed above. I have a car that was totaled during hurricane sandy so I qualify for the sandy vpp. I was able to get a local dealer to knock off another $1000 below the vpp offer but they weren't able to locate the color we wanted. I found a dealer in PA that have the vehicle we wanted and they almost matched the offer, just $500 shy, but their doc fees was less so end up to be about same OTD.
If you were asking about the $500 edmunds rebates, it's for all 2013 pathfinder. If you search for pathfinder and look around in edmunds, you should see one of the ads mentioning $500 rebate. This is a separate offer outside from the dealers but you must sign up before your purchase. Just submitted my vin from our purchase. My brother got something similar for the maxima earlier last year.

Is the edmunds rebate still out there? I've looked and don't see it. Closing on a MY13 PF tomorrow. Would be great if I can still get.
