Deal on the price of the vehicle exactly as if you were planning to purchase it. $30,998 is the MSRP of the X-Trail SE AWD w/automatic. Now that we know the dealer cost of the SE AWD ($27,618), add about $950 for automatic and the invoice price is approximately $28,568. You don't want your lease payments to be based on $30,998 now, right?
The markup between invoice and MSRP is about 8.5%. Even if you split that with the dealer and agreed to lease at 4.25% over invoice (or about $29,782) that would save you about $40/month on a three-year lease, given Nissan's current rates and residuals. And you could probably do even better than that.
Note that right now Nissan has a promotion on where they're paying the first three payments on X-Trail leases. Depending on whether this requires the dealer to make a contribution (i.e., pay some of those payments for you) they may be less willing to deal on the price, because they're already losing money there. On the other hand, if it's Nissan Canada that's making the payments for you, then it shouldn't affect the negotiated price with the dealer.

the dealers I have spoken to suggest there aren't many lightly used x-trails out there. While the number isn't huge, Autotrader.ca shows about 10-15 within 100km of Toronto.
Most have some or even most of the warranty left and look to be okay deals. Might be a good to get a Carfax report on them (I believe you can get an unlimited number of the reports for a month for about $20). You can get to Carfax through CAA.

36 months seems like a great deal at 0.8%..... 3 years of almost no interest and if car is still good for me, I can by it back for $14.6k What do you all think??
#17 of 33 Got a quote for Nissan Xtrail...is it worth it?
Mar 27, 2007 (5:36 am)
I got a quote at a nissan dealer for a new 2006 Xtrail Bonavista edition for a total of $30,663 (live in ontario canada). The currently have a promotion on for $6000 off MSRP. I haven't gotten to the stage of haggling the price so i'm sure I can get for a bit cheaper. Was wondering how much more I should get off the final price? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

#19 of 33 Bought a 2006 Xtrail Bonavista
Mar 29, 2007 (5:05 am)
Well we ended up buying the Bonavista. It was just too good of a deal to pass up. We ended up paying a total $30,000 flat. This included taxes (live in Ontario Canada) and got them to throw in the cargo rubber mat as well. Got a bit of a deal on the rust, paint, fabric protection and sound inhibiter (doubt this does anything but it was part of the protection package).
So before tax, freight & delivery it worked out to $24,800.

So the $30,000 included the protection package? The Bonavisata edition, does that include AWD, Traction and Stability control? Which dealer in Ontario did you get it from?
I am thinking of a Mazda 5, but maybe the X-Trail is a better buy? A previous poster felt betrayed by Nissan for discontinuing the X-Trail. I don't think it matters, does it? As long as Nissan is around, they will still warranty it.

The protection package was another $1000 (included the taxes). The Bonavista is AWD but does not come with the Stability control (only comes in the LE model). Nissan hasn't discontinued the Xtrail. They aren't coming out with the 2007 models but will be coming out with the 2008's. The 07's were late in coming out and therefore decided to hold off until '08. Thats why the big incentives on the '06's to compete with their competitor's new '07's. We bought ours in the Burlington dealer.
#22 of 33 We just bought the X-Trail LE
Apr 14, 2007 (8:24 am)
Quite the experience with the various dealers. Morningside Nissan told us they were the only ones who had the Bonavista and there were only 15 left in Ontario and it was rock bottom at $24,888. We almost bought but checked other Nissan dealers and fount that there was a lot of inventory. We have been nissan and Infinity owners for a long time and very comfortable with their service and quality.
As much as we loved the Bonavista, we found a few X-trail LE's and although $3,000 more, found the Interior and total package much more appealing. Got the same deal $6000 off and settled for an on the road price of $33,700. Tan with Black Leathyer Interior.... very impressive.
That was aweswome for a quality vehicle, plus we have family in the UK and they raved about the X-Trail.
Had an ugly experience with a Mazda sales man in Ajax who thought we would buy the Mazada SUV. (It is made at the Ford plant). When we told him we settled for the X-trail, he said it was discontinued because of problems, it was made in Mexico and we wouldnt get our moneys worth...yada yada yada. Talk about a sore loser.
Brings up a point though. Every Nissan dealer said the X-trail was made in Japan. Did anyone else hear Mexico?

Glad I found this thread while I was looking for a new XTrail. The info was very helpful in making sure the price was right and I knew what the pros and cons were of the SUV. Just purchased a Platinum Bonavista at Midway in Whitby. No hassle no pressure deal and they still have quite a few of them left, so if you're looking head out there. (No I don't work for Nissan!!) Just under $30K all in. Pick it up Wednesday. How does everyone like theirs so far?
p.s. They are made in Japan.
