It was Gerald Nissan in Aurora, kinda out there as I live in Chicago. Worth the drive out there as the "country road are easier to navigate" At first the dealer said that we could not drive by ourselves....some kind of excuse. But when we were going to leave the "main man" said, take it out for a spin by yourselves. Thank god as if one more dealer had to sit behind me and talk about himself .....
Wow that sounds like a great deal as it has another package for about the same price. The utility package was not needed for me as the runners get icy, hold snow, and plows snow. If I wanted to get the top of the truck, step on the wheel or step or even doorjam. But if was there, yeah it would be ok.. Yeah if you go, since there are about 30 dealers in chicago, you can likely get $500 to $1000 below invoice then the $1500 off. It may be one that is likely to sit a little longer for its color or extra options. SE's are there, but at $3000 over the S for a stereo, rims, and titanium is not quite worth it.
24,300 sounds already below invoice by at least $500. watch out for destination charges because they should be included in the invoice cost. My thought is buy now or pay about $3000 dolars more in January for close to MSRP and higher interest rates. So that is like one year of depreciation.
Rebates are listed, I found it on the web somewhere it is $500 cb, and 4% at 60months which is about $1000 off the prime rate.
#70 of 424 $100 below invoice
Oct 14, 2005 (4:37 pm)
I'm now at $100 below invoice for a 05 Xterra S 4x4, power, utility, microfilter, cargo cover, floor mats, splash guards, body side molding. Invoice is 24620, so I'm at 24520-1500 = 23020 + ttl. What does everyone think? The dealer basically said this was their final offer. I would really like to buy it, but I want the best deal possible. Does anyone think I could get 2-300 more off the price? Around here there aren't too many S's equiped like this. There are a lot of SE's though.

I know nothing about 4x4's, but I've recently had some interesting relavations. Not including Tax, title and tag, (almost) loaded 2005 S 2x4's can be had for $20.5K and 2005 SE 2x4's are less than $1,000 more. Don't pay more. You are bidding on a year old car.
I've switched to focusing on an SE for the reason you said....there are a 'lot of them' and for a G more, you get big 17" deluxe tires/rims, deluxe stereo et al.
Just because this car is popular with you, don't think it is popular with the masses
because it isn't. Pick up the phone, ask for the persons who responded to your emails and made a VERY low offer on a specific car with the options you want. Call every dealer with in a hundred miles. They get paid to sell cars, they have a load of them and they can't eat 'em. Oh, and consider a SE.

so does that mean an SE 4x4 should be ~$23.5k? adding the xtra trans shouldn't up the price too much more than 2g right? Also, it seems the only deals they're offering is 3%APR + $500 cash OR $1500 cash only... so with good credit, what are the chances of getting close to 3% and taking the latter rebate? sorry, but kind of new to this. Thanks to all!

Did you read my post about calling dealers and making offers? The lots are full and the 2006's are here.
I just bought an SE 4X2 (changed from original S 4X2 intent) with 15 miles.
MSRP is $26,630. Follow the numbers: my cost $22.1, dealer add ons $650, tax title transfer $1500, REBATE $1500. Walk out price $22.7k in Winter Haven, FL.
Special thanks to Thumper and everyone who posted prices and told us how to save a few hard earned bucks. THANKS
3 day 2005 X SE 2X4 review:
PRO: strong engine, NICE stereo (plays mp3's), stadium seating.
CON: no driver seat elbow rests, stiff ride, mileage??

i truly encourage everyone buying a new car to search for the correct dealer invoice. I paid and went through c_______r_____s.com then walked into the dealer and went to the back lot to check on actual inventory. se come with fog lights easy to see how many they have on inventory ect. I paid 21,000 plus ttl. then was offered the extended warranty for 1,300 i told them no thanks. went on the internet and found a dealer back east that advertised the 6year 100,000 for 899.00 SOLD!! i called nissan usa to verify that the dealer trully existed and the offer was real since it had a name (type of cigarret brand)nissan. they are for real.

thanks for the great info. I think I will look out for a 2005 SE, but, on edmunds, it claims the msrp is 25,350 (4x2) and invoice = 23,709. This puts you well below invoice, even without rebate (an incredible deal). 4x4 trans (per msrp) is ~2g more, so I would hope to shoot for 24.1k, BUT, other than there being lots of these cars still on lots, what other leverage do I have to deal this far below invoice. I have no ammo when they come at me with their "rock bottom 'invoice' price" Anyway, any other suggestions/opinions would be really great! As posted before, the absolute best i've been able to get so far is for an S 4x4 w/ pwr + util for 23,3k
#78 of 424 Xterra SE 4X4
Oct 24, 2005 (3:23 pm)
I called every dealer in MA for pricing on SE 4 X 4 with floor mats, microfilter, autodimming mirrors, mud guards; 4 dealers had the color I wanted; 2 were willing to do $24,650 (MSRP is $28,800); 2 are willing to go to $24,500. I think they may even go lower in another week or two. As many of you know, Automotive News came out with stats on dealer inventories; there are 26,000 of these babies out there which represents a 128 days supply (it is the end of October!!!). I suspect that deals will only get better. Happy hunting.
