The dealer gave me approx. $2000 more for my trade than any other dealer and he reduced the doc. fee by $200. Also I called Nissan Canada and they advised me that at the Vancouver International car show they will be handing out coupons for $1000 off for any 2013 Nissan product. So I won't be paying list price. None of the dealers would drop their prices close to inv.as there is a shortage of new Pathfinders here. I will be waiting about 3 months to get ours.
The US dealers seem to be more likely to discount a new vehicle than Canadian dealers. I may sell my vehicle privately and then negotiate a better cash deal. I have had a few dealers offer a 1500. discount for a cash deal.
Not a great deal bujt better than list.

Look up Truecar.com, if you haven't already. Very good site that offers average prices paid by others in your area for the car you are watching. If it finds dealers in your area that have signed up with TrueCar, you will also get "certificates" from those dealers for a really good low price. Caveat is that they will claim the car has to be on their lot (i.e. they will not offer Truecar price on something they have to locate outside). Having said that, I still got my dealer to agree to a price only slightly over the Truecar price. Pretty good deal, I thought.

Agreed. Truecar is a great place to start! In the end I got mine $2,000 BELOW what the Truecar certificate said (before TTL) - from another dealer that did not participate in Truecar pricing. Everything is negotiable...keep pushing to get what you want for a great price!

According to Truecar, I got the truecar price on a car they had to locate. They said the target price was 41,532. So, I guess that is really not too bad. There was one person who purchased one in my area for a lower price, but I guess you can't feel to bad about that. I'm just wondering what area of the country it is that people are getting the really good deals! I'm midwest - invoice or slightly below seems about all you get here.

If you are in the Atlanta area, go to Town Center Nissan and ask for Rick Mackrell. Tell him David Waters sent you and he'll take good care of you.
#597 of 680 $500 cash card
Mar 09, 2013 (3:15 pm)
Has anyone been able to still get the $500 cash card 30 days AFTER they submitted the request? Meaning - I signed up for the offer 1/27 and we weren't able to get a deal done. Well the 30 days have past and I still have the email with the offer but worry I'll get denied as the initial 30 day window has past. We want to go purchase the car tonight and would really like to know if we can put an extra $500 down and have that card as well.

No secrets, I don't think - just a lot of email. We sent a lot of communications and did a lot of negotiating. We paid a couple thousand under what TrueCar is predicting for our area, so I tend not to trust it, but I'm sure it varies wildly.
SL Premium 4WD w/ carpeted mats, splash guard plus cross bars, all weather mats, aftermarket WeatherTech cargo liner (behind 2nd row) and 6 oil changes thrown in for
- MSRP: 39,895
- Sales Price: 35,029
- Lease Cash: 650
- Net Cap: 34,379
Plus the $500 edmunds card.
We paid acq fee up front so as not to pay finance cost and tax on that, but that's it - no downpayment. Same dealer gave me a quote on a Platinum (base) for ~$37K on a $42K MSRP.
