    Do you mean $2000 off from invoice or $2000 off to bring it to invoice?

    HONDAkid
    P.S. and this offer is for the 07 Quest?
  • Yes, for an 07 SE Quest, that's why I titled the post "2007 Quest pricing". And yes, 2000$ below invoice, that's why I put "AND" in all uppercase letters.

    CarolandDavid ..... You do have a way with words .. don't you??!!

    May we NEVER talk again!

    Sincerely,

  • So $2k below invoice on an '07 if you are a previous Quest owner? Could you expand more on the "offer letter?"

    I'm relatively new to the buying scene. Could someone give me an idea on what the best bargain is on an 06 Nissan Quest S SPecial Edition is? I don't need all the bells and whistles and I'm a single mom of 4 boys, so I have a strict budget.

    This is what I got out of my local dealer:
    The MSRP: 26775

    The discount: -1293.00(what that is for I dont know)

    Rebate: -3000.00

    Sale Price: 22482.00

    State & Local Taxes:1155.13

    License , Title, Reg. Fees: 80.00

    I'm wondering if it is still possible for them to come down some on the price. Any suggestions? :confuse:
  • Letters were automatically sent to registered Quest owners from Nissan. We got one from corporate, and one labelled as from dealer, although they look so similar in format that you gotta figure it's from the same program. One referred to "VIP pricing" and 2000$ cash back, the other didn't really elaborate anything specific.

    You should be able to get a further discount on a 2006 Quest. They are trying to get rid of the 2006 for the 2007. Everythign else looks fine.

    Take a look on Edmunds for invoice pricing for the Quest S special edition. You may want to invest in a DVD player with 4 boys.

    We got a 06 nissan Quest s Spec Ed for 19,600. No dvd player. Only the standard extras (floor mats, upgraded upholstery, cargo cover) plus the Rear view with a compass which was a 230 extra. NOBODY we asked could match that deal. They said they lost 1,800 and I believe it. The other dealer also said can't match that they lost 1800. So I would think 19,600 plus 1,800 to get to 21,400 would be a good deal. We bought on memorial day. GL Mary
  • JerseyJen,
    We have 3 little ones so I was moved to respond to you. :)

    I follow all the online advice from Edmunds et al and refuse to deal from MSRP; I start with Invoice. This has worked for several years / vehicles / dealers for us.
    It's hard to comment on your price because an S-SP can still come with additional options and we can't tell from your MSRP what else is on that van. I can say the MSRP you typed is about 1300 higher than Edmunds base 06S SP MSRP (25450), so it probably has a couple options or dealer add-ons on it. Edmunds says invoice is 23537, so add that same 1300 to reach 24837 sale price. You have them nearly 2400 cheaper than that, which suggest to me you *might* be getting a decent price. There could be several other factors to look at. Discount could be because they need to move all the 2006s out now that 2007s are coming in. SOme of it could be that they had a local aftermarket guy put something on there and tried to mark it up 500. Dealers pay interest for every unit on their lot because they borrow money to buy them, so that's another reason they need to move them, especially older ones. The longer they have that van, the more its price will drop. Rebate is from Nissan, that's yours no matter what. They still make money in other ways (i.e. holdback) you won't even see.

    You might want to consider looking at the new Hyundai Entourage. I am - even though I'm a Nissan lover and have 2 2004 Quests now. I had to look because they offered virtually all the same options at thousands less. They have incredible warranty coverage, which should be all the more important to single moms of many on a budget. The worst difference for me is the CD stereo power difference, which I'd bet won't matter to you like it does me. The spare is inconvenient, but they give you some years of free roadside assistance anyway..
    Food for thought, hope this helps and good luck! Let us know what you do. :)
  • I am looking to purchase a pretty loaded Vehicle but noticed the SL can not be equipeed with VDC without the Nav/Pax package(like another $3200)

    What I want:
    2007 SL
    SL Prem. package
    Skyview w/ Sirius
    SL upgrade
    Seat package
    micorfilter
    MSRP $36415 but no VDC
    invoice $33132

    ...they have offered this Quest w/ misc options(they have 6 in FL region w/ MSRP of $36855..must have floor mats or whatever also...started "$400 over invoice" $33950 supposedly non-negoitable)

    But the 2007 SE with VDC and DVD/tech package list out $38055 w/o misc crappy addons...that should be included ie floor mats...I figure same price of $400 invoice so car would be $1500 more to get VDC

    Long winded ...is the Nissan VDC(vehicle Dynamic control) worth that much

    Did anyone else get one of these letters yet for an '07? Just curious, I haven't received anything yet and our lease is up at the end of Feb.

    Howdy everyone .. I am looking for Dealer Invoice Price on the 2007 Quest S.

    If anyone in the Toronto Ont area has this info, would you please post it.

    Thanks In Advance,

  • I have a purchasing strategy which may or may not be sound. I am interested in purchasing a 2006 minivan at what I hope to be a significant savings from what I have read on the forums and have been quoted. I am starting with information that a friend purchased a 2006 Honda Odyssey EXL RES from the dealership in Goldsboro, NC for $28,900 before taxes, tags, and fees. The OTD price was about $30,300, I think. I am also interested in the Nissan Quest as well as the Toyota Sienna. My plan is to take this purchase price to dealers of these 3 vehicles and see who is willing to beat this price by the most, on a comparably equiped van. I know the resale on Sienna and Odyssey is slightly better than the Quest, but they seem to be selling for about the same value when new. We looked at a Nissan Quest that was MSRP at about $37,000 and hoped this may fall into this range of the EXL RES. What is anyone's opinion on this strategy. After test driving all three vehicles, I ranked the handling in the order of Quest/Sienna/Odyssey. The problem with the Sienna is that the Toyota dealership we spoke with takes the LE and then does a dealer install of Leather Seats and DVD player. Negotiating with them seems to be a high risk since they will add these items, which would give us the vehicle we want, but would probably result in our paying the same price for the Odyssey EXL RES, which has many more features. The safest bet will be to attempt to purchase the same vehicle at the same price from the same dealer as my friend. However, they would need to transfer a vehicle from another dealership since they are sold out of the 2006 Odyssey EXL RES. I am not sure if any transfer fees would be added on or if I could negotiate the removal of those fees.
  • dtownfbdtownfb Posts: 2,915
    I'm not sure your strategy is sound since you will likely have to take what the dealer has on his/her lot. Also by not having a clear favorite vehicle or a clear price, you will be doing a lot of back and forth with saleman.

    It will be hard to get an apples to apples comparison this late int eh model year. I would sit down and decide what is the closest I can get in each vehicle, determine what options are the most important (ones you must have and the ones that you can do without) and negotiate the best price for each van. All three manufacturers want to clear out their 2006 since 2007 will be on the lots next month. I know Nissan is giving the Quest a makeover for 2007 and are aggressively selling the Quest. The Sienna and Odyssey will be a tougher negotiation but you shoudl be able to get a decent deal. I doubt your friend's saleman will give you the same price if they have to deal with another dealership.
  • before you buy an 2006 Quest look at the improvements in the 2007. My wife said an '06 would be fine but drove the 2007 and liked it much better....improved the fold down seats big plus over Honda/Toyota for my wife...improved the dash as well..

    She also felt the 2007 drove better

    The Toyota on the Limited has few options unavailable on even Top lIne Quest

    My wife loves here new 2007 Quest 3.5 SE with SE Tech/ SIrius and DVD (she moved from 2001 ML320).. except Nav/Pax package(only option we did not get)

    Also, I disagree if the vehicle is on a lot fairly close it will cause zero issues IMHO...our 2007 was 200miles away
  • I have a price offer from Southern States Nissan in Raleigh, NC. There are 2 other Nissan dealers in the immeidate area (and several within an hour)who I have not yet checked. Here is the price quote:

    Wholesale/ Retail
    Base Price: $30769/ $33650
    Destination: 650/ 650
    19" Run Flat Tire
    (VDC): 738
    Splash Guards: 113
    Seat Upgrade: 690
    Mats: 119
    Dual DVD screen: 1648
    Cargo Cover: 44
    Nav System: 1561
    -----------------------------------
    Final: $36287/ $39925

    Dealer pirce: $36637
    Minus Rebate $33637
    plus tax/tags

    This is $6288 under MSRP. I have read that $8-10k under MSRP is what you can expect. I have no need for the Nav System, which I cannot avoid with this package. Without the Nav system, I am paying $32066, which is $7849 under MSRP. I would probably be comfortable if they accepted the offer of 32066, but it still seems to be more than what others say they are paying. If we dropped it to wholesale, I would net the $350 above invoice and would be 8199 under MSRP at $31716. How does this price compare with others' experiences?
  • dtownfbdtownfb Posts: 2,915
    Also make sure you want the Run Flat Tires as well. they are pretty expensive to replace. You can check Tire Rack to get a sense of what they cost.

    The $31,716 gets you in the $8k-$10k range. Start negotiating at $31,5k and see what happens. If you are sold on the Quest, you should get quotes from th other dealerships in your town. You should casually mention that you have visted the other dealerships as well.

    Just got my new '07 Quest SE. Below are the options and OTD price.

    Color: Nordic White Pearl
    DVD DUAL SCREEN
    FLOOR MATS
    SEAT PACKAGE
    SPLASH GUARDS
    S/R WIND DEFLECTR

    OTD price: $35,200

    I thought it was a good price but wanted to know if anyone has gotten a better deal.
  • Start at post 497 or so, that's when the first 07 purchases are discussed. I think you are around $1,500 more than the best deals obtained
  • justin714justin714 Posts: 10
    Thanks dslunceford. I'd tried negotiating $14,500.00 OTD but they wouldn't budge 'til I got to $15,200.00. There was only one Nordic White available in California so that may have been one of the factors.
  • f1236089f1236089 Posts: 25
    $15200 for 07??!! Sign me up, please :)
  • vinhphucvinhphuc Posts: 44
    Hi,

    I believe the number "$15200" is a typo. Look up a few earlier posts you'll see that's actually $35200. Sorry to have your heartbeat going up for nothing! :)
  • tsu670tsu670 Posts: 293
    It appears Nissan has configured the Quest SL & SE options packages in such a way that it is almost impossible to get popular options without also having to buy the DVD/Navigation system and, therefore, run flat tires at the same time. Got this from Build a Quest and "Specs & Options" on Nissan's website. For example, if you want leather seats you also have to order the DVD system. If you want the towing package, you have to get the DVD system. And with the DVD/Navigation system comes run flat tires, something we definitely do not want (determined from "specs & options" page). Any word if this packaging will be changing for 2008 models?

  • Hello,

    I am looking to buy 2007 Model Minivan either Odyssey or Quest.

    I haven't made much research on Quest till now. I am thinking of buying Odyssey all the time.

    They best price I got on Odyssey EX-L with DVD system is 27,200.

    Today, I came to know, I will get better options and Skyview in Quest for less than the above amount.

    Can you tell me the best price I can get 3.5 SL Quest Model with SkyView & DVD System?

    Thank you
  • I live in Houston area. I was trying to buy a 2008 Quest last week and got this offer.

    Model
    3.5 SL
    Packages and Options
    Splash Guards
    Fold-Away Seat Package
    3.5 SL Panasonic® DVD Entertainment System
    3.5 SL Leather Package
    Rear view monitor
    No Skyview.

    Accessories
    Cargo Organizer
    Floor Mats, Carpeted
    Roof Rack Crossbars
    Retratable Cargo Cover
    Total MSRP:$34,560.00

    The dealer offer $28,000 not including TTL.

    I didn't buy it because there's 400 mile on the meter. Should I buy it? or how much more I can negotiate?

    Thank you.
  • dtownfbdtownfb Posts: 2,915
    Price sounds good. You may want to check what rebates are available. Based on the price you got from the dealer, there must be.

    The 400 miles on the van shouldn't be too much of an issue. The problem you run into now is the dealer will give you a great price but normally only for car already on the lot. They have their end of year numbers to worry about.
  • cclcalcclcal Posts: 20
    $22000?
    that's a great price, where are you located?

    i'm in socal and the best i got so far is $24xxx for a 2008 3.5S with driver's package. no leather, no skyview...

    not so many write ups about purchases here. 100s for odyssey/sienna.

    no one like the quest? prob cuz the 2009 is coming out in a new body style this fall.

    thanks!
