Nissan Pathfinder, SUV
#489 of 679 Nissan pathfinder SL

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.

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.

sticker $35314, paid $31,000 even, less $500 for financing through NMAC, so $30,500. I also applied for the $500 Visa gift card through Edmunds, hopefully I'll receive that too-$5314 off sticker, $2229 UNDER invoice...took them a few days to find blue, but well worht it for the $$ I saved. Could hardly believe it when they came in at that price, I used truecardotcom and they basically matche dthe lowest price and some. I always believed the end of the year was a great time to buy a car, but this was by far my best deal ever. Still have my 2002 with 193k and hope to keep it for at least one more year.
