Nissan Xterra, SUV
#303 of 424 2001 Nissan Xterra
Dec 27, 2007 (1:14 pm)
Im currently looking to trade/sell my vehicle and I was wondering what kind of offer I can get for my car
Its a 2001 xterra XE with 4 wheel drive ( YELLOW which is the best colour for xterra lol )
Has all the options that XE can be had from the factory as well as front and rear guard which costed around 2 grand from dealer.
It currently has 73000 miles on it.
There are some problems on the car.
The driver side seat does not move back and forth ( I think I have a coin stuck on the rail ) and the heater/ac does not work from gauges 1-3 but does work as normal on the 4th dial.
So my only choice is either freezing my ass off or sweat like nutz lol ( has anyone encountered this problem by any chance? if so what did it cost to fix? )
Other than that the car has the normal wear and tear that a car of 6 year should have , nothing major.
I got KBB TRADE IN value of 6000 on fair ( 8000 for excellent and about 7000 for good but I thought my car was just fair )
Do you think its reasonable for me to get 6 grand on a dealer trade in?
Im really not looking to do a private trade since its a lot more hassle than trading it in for a new vehicle
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated
#305 of 424 Purchase Price on '08 OR
Jan 02, 2008 (9:37 pm)
Before I share the details of my acquisition, I would like to thank Edmunds for making this Forum available. The voluminous data available plus the real-world experience of fellow owners and enthusiasts makes the decision making process far more pleasant, rewarding, and cost-effective. We bought our '04 BMW 325iT Sportwagon via European Delivery after extensive Edmunds research and have had over 4 years of sheer driving delight, reliability, and economy.
We ordered the '08 Xterra OR with automatic, despite having a combined 75 years of having driven manual transmissions. Again thanks to Edmunds Forum, owner's problems with the Xterra clutch dissuaded us from the 6-speed. We used the Costco Buying Plan through Shasta Nissan here in Redding, California, and were very pleased with their friendliness, professionalism, and honesty.
We ordered Tech Package, Supplemental Airbags, Tow Package, Auto Dimming Mirror, Protection Package, Adjustable Cargo Organizer, Floor Mats, Retractable Cargo Cover. Also ordered Desert Stone with charcoal interior.
Total, including factory incentive was $27,503.33. Given that Edmunds TMV is $29,160, we are quite satisfied to have received precisely what we wanted in the vehicle at a very fair price.
Took delivery last Thursday evening, and after a weekend trip to the coast, have over 600 miles on it. The Xterra is even better than anticipated, and since I can't pry it out of my wife's hands now, perhaps I'll finally get to drive the BMW (Sport Package, manual).
I can't imagine buying off the lot when ordering the BMW and Xterra exactly as desired has been so easy, thanks to Edmunds data. We keep cars for a long time, and it pays to get what you want.
#306 of 424 Purchase Price on 08 OR AT...Costco?
Jan 03, 2008 (8:33 pm)
I too am interested in purchasing an 08 Off Road, AT, through the Costco program. They said 500 over invoice minus factory incentives which are $1500 right now. Sound the same? How much negotiation room is left?
Looking at an Xterra Off Road with tech. package and will have to add tow package.
What kind of price should I be shooting for?
#307 of 424 Came home with an 08 OR!
Jan 04, 2008 (7:14 pm)
Well I guess I answered my own question.
We came home with an Avalanch Off Road, AT with tech, tow, auto mirror and protection. MSRP was 30,380 and sticker was 31,875. Invoice was 28,800 with 500 over for Costco was 29,300 minus the 2500 rebate put it at 26,800 before TTL.
We also had to add side steps for my wife which were not cheap that took us back up to 27,800.
It was great they didn't have an OR with Tow but one rolled up while we were there. We snagged it right off the carhauler...only 9 miles! We knew it was our car!
Overall it was easy and we were pleased with the expwerience and happy with our purchase.
#308 of 424 Xterra buying process experience
Jan 05, 2008 (6:07 am)
Yesterday I bought a 2008 xterra in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. I wanted to share my experience to anyone looking at buying. I went through edmunds for research and came across a get dealer quotes page. I entered my information on location and how far I wanted to go for quotes. Within minutes I had dealers sending emails and calling to verify info. The internet pricing system was extremely satisfying and comfortable to use. I sent out the price I was looking for and some sent their offer in an email and some sent their offer by calling on the phone. I visited some dealers before I started the internet process and the best price I could get was 23500 out the door price everything included for a 2008 xterra x base with no extra's MSRP 24840. I was asking 21000 out the door through the internet unfortunately the very best I could do was 21963 out the door price everything included. This price was actually the first email sent by Bowser in pittsburgh. I went in to the dealer and asked for the internet sales and they pulled up my email and we walked away with the deal. I felt the price was very fair. Not many dealers would even come close. The internet is the way to go if you are comfortable with computers. I had 10 dealers working for my price. I did have to counter a few times to get the price. I have gone on enough. In closing this was the best car buying experience I have had!!!!

Bought a new 08 Xterra SE just before Christmas.There was a $2500 rebate and 1.9%....You can't get both. Got the 1.9% and they knocked off $2500 from sticker.
Guess i got both.
Jan 11, 2008 (1:07 pm)
I just bought a new 08 Xterra S w/ tow package and a few other options. Sticker price was $27,255. With $2500 factory rebate & $500 college grad rebate our final price was $21,945. That would be an AMAZING deal; however, i only got $11,300 for my trade in 06 Honda Civic Coupe LX. That is low kbb. With the condition of the car, i imagine i could have sold it privately for about $2000 more. We did get a tax savings of approx. $1000 for the trade in though. Overall, i consider my negotiated price to be $22,945 (negotiated price + trade in loss). With that all said and done, we had $780 above my civic payoff for a down payment and our total out the door price with TTL was $22,880. It was a great buying experience and we are stoked!!

I followed the advice from http://www.fightingchance.com (packet of customized info costs $39.99) and paid $28,200 ($884 UNDER INVOICE).
I opted for the 1.9% financing, instead of the $2500 rebate.
