seeing that you owe $32.5K + interest on a truck valued at $24.8 can't be a good deal. I'm amazed at what a dealer can do as far as rolling negative equity. Once that Titan rolled off the lot you're looking at being at least $10K upside down and sorry to say that is not a good deal.

The deal is not bad make sure you get the warranty! MPG is about 13-17 depending on how heavy your foot it. I get 17mpg my husband gets 13mpg he has a lead foot. The space is wonderful! We love our truck!

thanks for the info. have you taken it for any long trips . i've read somewhere that the exhaust noise is pretty pronounced when cruising say 75mph.has this been your experience? i've only driven it on short test run but pretty impressed with engine responce and vast array of standard features on the le model.

I just purchased an '08 Titan Crew LE 4X2 with ALL the option packages, and a couple accessories. MSRP was 41,720, one dealer offered to ship the truck local (it was 380 miles away, but this dealership wouldn't tell me where it was) and gave me 38,220 as their first chop, but insisted that I pay the full shipping fee of 450. Through some research and phone calls I located the truck at it's current dealership, called them and they gave me 34,703 (about 1k below invoice), with 9700 for my trade in ('02 Chevy Ext. that I still owed 3700 on), plus I didn't have to pay the 450 shipping fee. My opinion on your deal is it's about the same difference between your MSRP and your negotiated price as my deal, so I would say it's a pretty decent deal. You might be able to do a little better, but that's up to you and the dealership. I'm sure the dealership I got mine at still made a good profit, but I was pretty happy with my deal. The advice I got here definately saved me some money on haggling the deal and trade in. As for the truck, I'm pretty dog gone happy with it. It's got the Navigation pkg, DVD Mobile Theater Pkg, Tow pkg, Moon roof, side airbags, Step Rails, plus it came with the underseat storage bin, floor mats, and the security lugs for the tires. The wife and I STILL haven't figured out all the neat gadgets built into this baby.

Congratulations! For $34703, does that include the rebate/cash back?

i've been hemming and hawing about the purchase of a new 08' titan for the past three weeks . now i'm glad I did. loved all the extras you get for your money with the titan. however after seven test drives at three different dealerships in seven different titan trucks every truck had to be jumped started with an eigth truck that couldn't even be jumped. no wonder for the $4,250.00 rebate. you look at the discount and you say an unbelievable deal. I almost bit. yes seven test drives. sounds crazy? maybe! I loved so much about it I was originally ready to over look the jittery ride, the well below average fuel milage, the noisy exhaust, but not the inability of a truck that wont start. yea I might be crazy but I'm not stupid. nissan titan no thanks.

The Titan certainly looked appealing to me and the rebate of $4250 was enticing as well. I just got the consumer reports New Car Buying Kit and checked the Titan. Very dissappointing to say the least. Brake problems from 04-06. "Reliability has been well below average." The used car verdicts has half black rating(fair).
