2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum (3.5L V6 CTV Automatic)
Platinum Premium Package
4-Piece Carpeted Floor Mats
Illuminated Kick Plates
Negotiated sales price: $39,787.00 OTD (Montana title and registration = no sales tax). About to purchase.
.9 % APR for 60 months.
Quick clarification needed. Being told that the S and SV are the only models that qualify for $500 Customer Bonus Cash. Is this correct? Edmunds makes it appear as if Customer Bonus Cash applies to all models, while TrueCar states that Customer Bonus Cash is only available for S and SV models.
Lastly, has anyone received the $1000 Pathfinder Conquest Direct Mail? Here are the details:
A select group of targeted consumers will be given $1,000 in Customer Bonus Cash towards the purchase or lease of an eligible vehicle. Eligible Customers will receive a unique authorization code. Note: authorization codes may only be transferred among family members living at the same address. Customer must present this authorization code at the dealership to validate offer or authorization code can be located on the Nissan Incentive Award site by searching for Customer Name. No dealer manifest will be provided. Limit one offer per individual. Limit one offer per vehicle.
Comments and feedback are greatly appreciated and encouraged.

Have not heard of the $1,000 customer bonus cash. How did you hear about that - through Nissan website?
The Edmunds $500 cash back is good for all models. If TrueCar is telling you something different they may be referring to a completely different cash back offer. As far as I know the Edmunds offer is good for Edmunds only and has nothing to do with TrueCar.
Hope this helps! Good luck - you'll love your PF!!

The $1K Pathfinder Conquest Direct Mail program rebate is mentioned on NADA's web site. Also, if you type in "Pathfinder Conquest Direct Mail" program on Google, you will see many different dealerships pop up.
I have the Visa gift card offer from Edmunds (just need to take delivery of vehicle) ready to send off.
To clarify, Edmunds is stating that Nissan is offering $500 Cash Back and 0 % APR up to 36 months / 0 % APR from 48 to 60 months and appears valid for all 2013 Pathfinder models.
TrueCar is only showing 0 % APR up to 36 months / 0 % APR from 48 to 60 months and NO cash back offer.
Just wanting to know what others are experiencing from their dealership.
#616 of 680 OEM Accessories for 2013 Nissan Pathfinder
Mar 27, 2013 (12:25 pm)
Saw it mentioned (or so I believe) a web site that sells OEM accessories for 2013 Nissan Pathfinder on here, but now I can't locate it.
Any recommendations on where I should look online assuming it is less expensive that buying from Nissan directly?
#617 of 680 2013 Pathfinvder SL 4x4
Apr 02, 2013 (11:32 am)
I have just purchased 2013 pathfinder SL 4x4 with the following specs:
2013 SL 4x4 (mocha stone exterior and charcoal interior)
- tow package
- cross bars
- illuminated kick plates
- mud guards
- floor mats
After some negotiations I was able to get the car for:
Price of the car and destination fees: $33200
documents fee: $75
nys tire fee: $15
I also got free one year oil changes (maybe it is free 2 year of oil changes don't remember the details now)
I got 0.9% financing for 60 months. I am now waiting for my $500 edmunds card.
I saw someone mentioned that they got a similar vehicle for $32,433 + $498 (Dealer Conveyance fee) but when I called that dealer they said that person participated in nissan vpp program, and that he can sell similar car for $1100 more.
I got the deal at the end of the month and dealer asked me not to share the details...
One thing that I wanted to advice people is to watch for dealer tricks. The dealer I was dealing with tried to get me into high 3.99% financing, then tried to include different warranties. I walked out 3 times and was stopped 3 times.
When I got home I noticed that the price submitted to the bank was $33850 - $500 rebate. That would mean that the price is higher than $33200 I negotiated by $150. I suspect that the $150 are finance charges (but maybe this was the dealers way to get more money without me noticing). I was told by the finance lady I got a great deal, but I am sure they tell it to all their customers.
In the end it was a little stressful but was worth it.

That was me - and yes, I used the Nissan VPP Program for my purchase. I didn't realize the VPP program really gave you that much of a discount!! Glad I was able to use it!
Purchased the car on March 2, 2013 - and just yesterday received my $500 Visa gift card in the mail.
One month later and I still love the car. Good luck with yours!

Ah, so the dealer was not lying... .
The deal I got was about $270 more but again, I did not get vpp special pricing. Considering that I think the deal I got was pretty good.
I am happy that you were able to get it for such a low price. It helped me in my negotiations. Once I secured my deal, I contacted middletown nissan and found out that your deal was special due to vpp.
I like the vehicle, especially the comfortable ride.
Good luck with your pathfinder.

2013 SL 4x4 (Cayenne Red with Almond Interior)
-Carpet Floor Mats
-Illuminated Kick Plates
-Dual DVD Entertainment System
Paid $34,267 plus TTL out the door.
Flew from Charlotte to BWI and CARMAX dealer picked me up at the airport and drove me to White Marsh Maryland CARMAX to sign the papers and I drove the car back home. A $140 plane ticket to pay $2000 less on a car was well worth it. Highly recommend CARMAX new car dealerships. My salesman told me they have had folks from NY and as far away as Texas fly up to buy cars from them and drive them home. It was a nice 7 hour drive home and I got the car broke in all at once.

You may have a hard time finding that exactly. They will most likely have at least floor mats. I honestly think you should fly from NO to BWI and go to CARMAX. You will get over $5000 off MSRP and its no haggle. What you see is what you get. Their DOC fee is only $99, not hundreds like many dealers.
