Nissan Rogue, Car Buying, SUV

A factory nav/backup camera is available on the 2010 S model, as part of the "360 Package," but on no other Rogues (makes no sense). We didn't need it, so it was a non-issue for us.
We purchased a new '10 Rogue SL with Premium and Leather Packages, plus roof-rail crossbars, splash guards and rear bumper protector (all stand-alone accessories) for $22,300 plus tax (6.5%) on the net after trade-in ($13,500 for an '09 Honda Civic LX), and normal motor vehicle fees. There are none of those $399 or $599 dealer add-on charges here (Houston, TX). They tried to tack on a $149 "document preparation fee", but we negotiated it out of the sale. The $1750 rebate helped keep the cost down. Bottom line: $10,000 OTD. We were so pleased with both the vehicle and the deal, we bought another one (identical except for color) ten days later. My trade was a bit more ($16,000 for an '08 Mercury Mariner Premier VOGA Edition), so the final price was $7300 OTD. The sales associate kept pushing the low interest rates for creditworthy customers (which we are), since the dealer does make a few bucks off the financing. We nodded and smiled ... then paid cash. But we're sleeping at night. Our numbers show about a $1000 dealer profit, plus the $1750 rebate from Nissan ... looks like everybody won.
The dealership is Sterling McCall Nissan, part of that Group One conglomorate (at last count 144). We had visited their Toyota store, where we were descended upon like road kill by vultures. Our Nissan experience was quite the opposite from that fiasco ... everyone was courteous, professional, and low-key. We have a real estate background, and are astute negotiators. We also spent a couple of hours researching dealer cost, invoice, holdback and anything else we could unearth. We figured that $23,400 would make everyone happy ... so $22,300 (plus the three add-ons ... about $300) was a pleasant surprise.
We definitely made the right decisions concerning vehicles and dealership.

Hello, can you please tell me which dealership you got this from? The cheapest my dealer would give me in base price is $21K. The deal you got sounds awesome.

#473 of 632 Just bought 2010 Rogue S w/360 Package
Sep 13, 2010 (5:37 am)
I got yesterday a Nissan Rogue S with 360 package for $19,700 that includes the taxes, delivery fee, processing fee and rebates. On top of that I purchased the extended warranty for $1750. I traded a Kia Sedona 2005 for $3500 and financed the rest with 3% interest for 5 years.
How does that sound?

I took a look at the 11's ... not much difference, other than some bells and whistles which should be on the top model anyway. They added auto on/off headlights, climate control and a USB port. The SV with SL package appears to be a combination of the SL Premium and Leather options, plus a moonroof. By comparison, we paid $22,300 for a '10 SL with both packages, plus splash guards, rear bumper protector and window tint. The dealer also threw in the luggage rack crossbars, and deducted the cost of the floor and cargo mats (part of the Premium Package) ... about $300. Sales tax without a trade-in would have been about $1400. Bottom line: it looks like you'd be paying close to $4000 more.
I had an after-market auto headlight sensor installed for about $60 ... works just fine. Frankly, I thought that I'd miss the climate control (had it in two previous autos), but the manual system works nicely ... don't have to fiddle with it nearly as much as I did with past models. I think it has lots to do with the vents. I do miss the USB port, but I downloaded lots of music to my iPhone, so it's not a major issue.
We bought two '10 Rogues ten days apart, and don't regret it. If there are some available in your area, take a look at them. It might save you a bundle.
#477 of 632 2011 Rogue SV with SL package question
Sep 09, 2010 (1:25 pm)
I am considering buying a Rouge SV with Sl package - gray with black leather. I'm right around 26,000 how does that sound? I've been looking at this car, the 2010 Cl V EX-L with navi (although the 2011's are coming out in a few weeks), 2011 Ford Escape, and 2011 Chevy Equinox. I keep going back and forth, back and forth. I've read so many mixed reviews. I'm wondring if the 2011 changes in the Rouge has fixed many of the issues people have had with it. Many of the ratings said it looks plain, and doesn't have good style - I'm curious if the 2011 fixed their concerns. Also the leather in the Rogue doesn't seem as "plush" as the Honda CR V, but the front end of the Honda looks to "carish" then the 2011 Rouge. Also, I"m worried that the Rogue looks to much like a "girl car".....ha,ha,...which is why I was leaning to the escape or equinox since it wasn't as "round" and more "suv" looking...Just curious what you all think. The dealership has a car on hold for me waiting for me to come get tonight..but I'm hoping for some feedback from you guys first.

May I know where did you get the $22300 for the fully loaded SL? Is that after the $1750 rebates? That seems an fantastic deal! I read some of your previous post, it seems that you did a trade-in. Even if you don't do the trade-in, 22300+1000=23300 would still look like a price I'd jump in.
My local dealers (in Oregon) all quotes me around $25000 (after all rebates). The MSRP of this model with fully-loaded package is ~$29950. How can your deal sell one for ~$7000 below the MSRP? Is there any catch or you choose a good timing (e.g. they just want to unload the last one in the lot at a loss)?

heth247: I live in Houston, TX. The $22,300 is after rebates ($1750) and before our trades (we bought 2 identical Rogues ... got $13,500 for an '09 Honda Civic LX, and $16,000 for an '08 Mercury Mariner Premier VOGA Edition). The sticker prices differ, depending on region. There could also be a couple of stand-alone options ... moonroof, AWD, some aftermarket gadgets, etc. My thought is that the difference between the '10 and '11 models don't justify the huge price differential ... besides, the SL package on the SV model includes a moonroof. I haven't had much luck with them ... they've leaked, rattled, and in one instance, both.
car4523: We haven't had a moment's trouble with either of our '10 Rogues. From what I've read, most of the complaints deal with the CVT transmission. Apparently, the issues have been addressed, since Nissan warranties it for 10 years or 120,000 miles. We think it's terrific. As for looks, that's a personal matter. We've had ours pinstriped, which does make a difference. We like the rounded look, as opposed to the boxy appearance of SUV's like the Escape. I've owned an Equinox, and really liked it, save for the cheezy interior and cheapo black bumpers. We test-drove the '11, and found the four-cylinder version to be underpowered. If you read my review on www.epinions.com you'll get a better idea of why we chose the Rogue over the competition ... and we drove all of them! Sometimes it's all about the hunt!!
