You are in the Nissan Xterra
What is this discussion about?
Nissan Xterra, SUV
Feb 05, 2005 (5:57 pm)
You can't buy a well-equipped SUV in the United States for less than $20k, so I have no idea what 'coupedincal' is talking about. You can't even buy a 2004 Xterra well-equipped for less than $20k. Nor can you buy a well-equipped Pathfinder now for less than $30k. Nissan is not risking anything by pricing the Xterra more than $20k. That's the price range of cheap SUVs. A loaded X will even break $30k, and that seems reasonable to me. A loaded 4Runner will break $40k. That's the market.

Dealers here in Denver say that if the pricing stays consistent with the 05 Pathfinder and Frontier the 05 Xterra should be $400 less than the 04.

I picked up a 2004 XE V6 on 2-5-05...we got it for$250 over invoice plus rebates. Getting hard to find ones with side air bags. The rebates offer two options 1)$1000 and 1% Nissan financing (if you qualify) 2) or $2400 and shop for your own financing**the other caveat is a $500 new college grad rebate added to either of the above options if you are a new/soon-to-be-new college grad** We negotiated for $250 over invoice BEFORE the $1500 in rebates($1000+$500=$1500)(wife is new grad) AND 1% for 60 months--. That is about what the TMV price was here at Edmunds (go armed with that info). We only got 14.3 MPG on our all-highway first tank of gas (even with a bit of a tail wind-ouch). I will follow up on the fuel economy after I experiment.

Just bought my second Xterra. First was a early 2000 Red SE 4x2 in Tampa,Florida Had 2 years ad traded off. Now I traded a 03 Jeep Liberty Sport for a New 04 Xterra XE with a lot of options; Got $5500. off the MSRP before trade in. Love my Xterra. Ride is lot better than Liberty and more room all around also. After the engine breaks in and a treatment of Slick fifty I expect to get around 21-22 MPG as I did with the 2000 model. It just takes about 8-1000 miles to break in first, (Nissan Engine Quality).

Specs and pricing for the 2005 Xterra are now on the Nissan website (www.nissanusa.com).
A loaded Off-Road edition goes for $28,930. There are only three factory options available on an Off-Road (once you've selected the drivetrain): Rockford Fosgate Audio, Side and Curtain Airbags, and an In-Cabin Microfilter. I think the price is pretty good.

Well, per nissan, the 2005's are scheduled to go on sale today. Anybody ventured to the dealerships yet? I imagine there will be slim pickings for a few weeks or so as inventory is built up. I'd be interested to hear how willing the dealers are to negotiate. I'll be looking at one, but will gladly wait until there's a deal to be had.

I do not think that $28,930 is good price... I think it should be a couple thousands less...
I doubt if people will buy such vehicle for almost 29,000.... but I need to see a vehicle to say for sure...

Yesterday I test drove an '05 Pathfinder and I loved it. I hope the Xterra drives and handles like the Pathfinder because I didn't want to take it back the dealer. Let's hope for the best.

on the '05 Xterra? I honestly thought it was pointless on the last model because of the shield on the front of the basket.
