I don't mean to be rude, but this thread should stick to prices paid and buying experience like it's titled. I was purchasing my pathfinder last night and needed my memory refreshed. I tried to access this thread from my smart phone and had to dig through people talking about recalls, etc to find what people paid. By the time the dealer came back with the offer it was too late.
With that said, I think I got a good deal.
My Pathfinder was loaded out Platinum Premium White exterior tan interior with tri climate and DVD in the headrests. It also has illuminated door sills, roof rail cross bars, carpeted floor mats, interior accent lighting, illuminated kick plates, and cargo area protector. Total for the car was 39,000 out the door. This includes $1380 in taxes and another $300 in title and license. I put $2k down. So I ended up paying $39320 for the car itself. MSRP is figured at $43,780. I also did my own financing at better rates than Nissan. Math worked out to take the financing from my federal credit union over any incentives for using Nissan Financing.
#643 of 680 Need advice... about to purchase...
May 17, 2013 (4:59 pm)
I am about to purchase an SL and want advice on if the price is good or if i could do better...
here is the best quote i got:
Base SL 4WD $31,800
Cross Bars $246
All Season Floor Mats $114
Premium Package $2,410
+ Document Fee $75
(no other destination fees, etc.)
The price does include $1000 cash incentive and $500 captive cash for financing through Nissan. I haven't negotiated interest rate yet but I don't plan to finance much and plan to pay down in the next several months, so it's not a huge factor - as long as the $500 incentive is worth more than the interest payments.
I would really appreciate any advice for those that have been through the process... is this a great, decent, bad deal???

I purchased a new SL Premium 4X4 the last day of April. It came with carpeted floor mats, 4 pc mud flaps,rear bumper protector and cross bars. MSRP was $40,795. The price I paid was $34,588 + $699 doc fee(they rip you off on that here but nothing you can do about it) + tax and tags and was also inclusive of $500 cash incentive(at that time) and an additional $500 cash for financing(I plan to pay the whole thing off in a month anyway). I also traded in a 2008 highlander limited with 73k miles and got $22,500 for it. which was the KBB trade in value for excellent condition. The tax rate here in NC is only 3% on new cars so I only paid the difference in the prices from my trade in to the new car so save a bunch of tax there as well.
That is the best price you will find. I did my homework including looking at fitzmall and carmax new car sales out of state but my local dealer beat them and I was ready to go there for their great no haggle price).
Hope this helps

May 20, 2013 (6:03 am)
I walked out on a Platinum Premium 4x4 with splash guards and floormats. The sticker was at $44, 870 or so. The price offered to me was $38, 999. This is after the $1000 rebate. Can I get better?

Something is fishy about that MSRP. My pathfinder has every possible option other than the tent and snowplow and its not close to that MSRP you stated. I paid 39k out the door with taxes included so you can do better.

I was incorrect on the MSRP. It is actually $44645. This is for the Plat Premium 4x4 with floor mats and splash guards.
According to Edmunds, the Invoice on this, exactly as equipped is $41118. At $38,999, It seems that I am at $2119 below invoice which would include $1500 in Nissan Incentives.
If my math is right, I am looking at $619 below invoice.

We just bought a FWD Platinum with floor mats for 36,325 OTD. That is including 6% sales tax. Also includes $2,000 in incentives ($1,000 of that required that we use their financing). We went through AAA pricing to start and then negotiated an additional $1,100 off beyond that. The dealership we went with gave us the best price we found in the area. We went to 6 or 7 different dealerships and this was the one left standing after negotiating with various sales managers over the past week.
