It should be the other way around: Buy a Versa, and get a Titan for free.
Now, there's a marketing idea that would get some people in the door.
GM is making deals all over the place. I even saw an ad for something along the lines of $10K off a Tahoe hybrid. Saw some of the same big discounts on Corvettes. It makes me drool just a little bit.
kyfdx....I'm with you on the EX 35. I drove one when I was out shopping recently. Although I was impressed, I was left with the idea of "what's the point?" There really isn't enough room in it to even qualify as a wagon.

I guess that's why it's being heavily discounted. Even the backseat is far smaller than that of a G35 (looking at the dimensions)
Combine that with a higher price, and you're destined to have a product that will be discounted heavily.
It's a very beautiful car, though, despite the lack of space, and it does seem more practical than a G35...
#187 of 193 Best AWD Option?
Aug 25, 2008 (8:45 pm)
Hi Everyone, greatings from your friends up North
My mum is looking to upgrade to something new from her current 2001 RAV4, which has about 120,000KM on it (~75K Mi).
Anyways, she is trying not to put out too much, and thankfuly these RAVs have a great resale value up here. Couple that with the common border we share with you guys and the knowledge available online, it is easy for us Canucks to buy a car down south (maybe Canadian dealers will stop gouging us if we speak with our wallets and buy down south...).
Anyways, long story short - What's the best deal in the 20k (USD, obviously) and below range for something with AWD?
I was thinking 2009 Ford Escape, if some serious rebate action opens up on that.
Otherwise the 2009 Vibe AWD looks good.
It has to be one of these makes (for warranty validity purposes on cross border sales):
Obviously I don't expect to find any $20K or below deals on a volvo or infiniti, but if you guys have seen any smoking deals on something form one of the above manufactures, I would appreciate the heads up!
I was also looking, and it seems like the Vue is on a pretty good discount, but its going to be well over $20K still for a decent unit.
$20K is about the price ceiling I am looking at.

I'd go for the Vibe or the Matrix...

I'd second that. Probably go with the Vibe for no other reason than it's a clone of the Matrix and GM is offering employee pricing on it.

Do Nissan warranties not cross the border? I would imagine that if Infiniti warranties do then Nissan's will too.
I'd suggest another RAV4, perhaps? Or what about the Nissan Rogue (if the Nissan warranties cross the border)
I'd also second the Vibe/Matrix recommendation as well.

If you are looking for a minivan, you should consider the Nissan Quest. The Quest board is reporting ridiculously low prices for the base and S models. Over $10k discounts.

Not just the Quest (minivan), but the 2008 and 2008.5 TITAN, FRONTIERS, ARMADAS and PATHFINDERS are at least 10000 off MSRP, some are close to 40% off MSRP.
Some dealers are willing to deal, others are not. Find a dealer who has lots of inventory and start emailing them for OTD offers. Use the Edmunds TMV to find out the MSRPs with the options you want.
