    I think larry10 was making a joke...


    I can guarantee Larry was making a joke!

    Yes it is a great time to buy a frontier right now. But you will definitley not receive 75% off and Disney tickets....

  • Would you mind telling me the NJ dealer? I live in Ocean County and don't mind traveling for a deal.

    Thanks

    I just got a 2008 Nissan Frontier 4X4 SE V6 with the equipment package and tow hitch for $20,500 after rebates of ( $2500 + $1000) from Poughkeepsie Nissan in NY. Sticker was around $27,085. Do you think I could have done better? I have not picked it up or done the finance paper work yet. I put $500.00 down on a credit card. What do you think?

    I would have went for that deal. I'm looking for the same truck right now and I'd be happy with anything between 20-21K. The problem has been finding a 4x4 that's even available. The dealership is not wanting to talk deal over emails so it's been hard to get an estimate price.

    When I heard about the promotion. I call the Internet Department in Oakland CA. They said they price match anybody.

    Got me 4X2 Frontier CC SB with Value Truck Package for $18,000 OTD. Can't be happier.

    GOOD LUCK BUYING!!!
  • LunLun, Is there anyway you could email me the exact promotion that Bay Bridge Nissan offered you. I just visited Dirito Bros. Nissan in Concord, and they where offering me a 4X2 Frontier CC SB with value truck package for $18,500 before taxes and fees. If there is anyway you could email me more info I would greatly appreciate it. My email is farzienrad@gmail.com
    Thank you so much for your help.

    Yes, the manual transmission does translate into a lot of driving enjoyment. The 6-Speed manual is what led me to buying new my '06 Frontier SE Crew Cab 4x2, my first Nissan. It's a sweet powertrain with excellent gear ratios -- even my wife shifts it like a pro.

    I agree with you on the poor quality of the base stereo. I think new speakers might help me best.

    FYI

    Tonkin Nissan in Wilsonville, OR has been advertising on their Web site:

    2008 Frontier SE 4x4 V6 automatic + F01 (Value Truck Package) for $17,725

    According to Edmund's:
    MSRP = $25,260
    Invoice = $23,691
    TMV = $21,659

    I haven't checked this out personally, but thought it might be a helpful reference point.

    I have a sweet '95 Nissan V6 4x4 with only 45K miles, so I'm just waiting to see if they get even more desperate. Would jump at $16,500. (May not happen, but I don't really need a new truck.)

    MSRP on a crew cab 4x4 se automatic with the value truck package is almost 27000. If your info is correct, if not you have probably have a manual trans.

    TMV has been a joke in one way or another for years, possibly (or not) on cars but epecially off on trucks, especially now.

    If you can get an 26700 se 4x4 crew auto with pwr and alloys for 17700 or thereabouts, you need a new truck, even if you have to get less than the books for your 95. That truck is ancient and the 05 redesign on a great improvement over the 04's much less that.

    If its a 26500 truck, canvas the dealers, try to work them down and buy it for 17700 if not. There is no such thing as a sweet 13 year old truck. (only of the memories of what you did in the back ;) ) This is a low volume vehicle. If a cars.com search within 30 miles produces only 20 or so hits do it, don't screw around too long for another 1000.

    Good luck

    Thanks jif.

    Should have added, this is an extended cab, not crew cab.

    It's about $7,500 off, which I'm guessing is $2,500 rebate + $5,000 dealer incentive mentioned earlier.

    I understand about TMV; just included for reference.

    One guy mentioned before there are some 40% off promotions, which would be 10000 off. Enough additional info to suggest it isn't bs. Get 10-20 bids towards end of month on a crew or extended cab (whatever you want) and see how close you can approach this working with the 2-5 who need to make a sale. If you can get your 16500 or less (or a crew cab for a bit more) do it especially if you can get close to kbb or especially edmunds for your 95 trade in. They're blowing them out, stocks are shrinking and they will have production adjusted next year so August is it. Cars.com or Frontier website will help you email within a 150 mi or more radius. Obviously for 8500-10000 off its well worth it. This truck was untouchable for less than 4500 or so off in august just a year or so ago and still a 07 has a a kbb trade in value of around 18000 . (for what thats worth.)

    Good luck

    Lithia Nissan of Medford Oregon (Lithia is a pretty large network of dealers).

    Quote for 08 KC SE 4x4 V6 auto with VTP: $18,709

    According to Edmunds:
    MSRP + destination charge: $25,260
    invoice + destination charge: $23,691

    Another bit of info: A different dealer rejected my offer that included a $5,000 reduction for a "Nissan-to-dealer incentive for 2008 truck quota" and said "we aren't going to meet the quota."

    It looks like there may indeed be a $5,000 incentive that some dealers may receive.

    Happy shopping!

    From: Lithia Nissan of Medford Oregon.

    According to Edmunds:
    MSRP + destination charge: $25,260

    (Seeing, moparbad's last post, I may have left some money on the table. But I'm still pleased to have gotten this rig for the price.)

    For those who might be interested, I used an e-mail variation of the standard "Fax" offer approach (see below). Note that I committed to the deposit upon acceptance of the offer and indicated in my cover e-mail that this offer would be presented to another dealer if not accepted by the expiration time.

    I got an e-mail back with a PDF of a dealership sales agreement to sign, and a follow-up phone call to verify that it was OK to charge the credit card. So far, the process has been completely painless.

  • csprafcspraf Posts: 6
    I bought the truck and made the deal over phone, 3 calls and one trip to take delivery. Treated very good at dealer.
  • Just purchased a new Super Black 2008 SE 4x4 CC short bed with VTP, tow hitch package, and bed extender OTD for $18994 with 0 down and no trade in. Oh and I got them to throw in a bug guard. I didnt need a new truck but for that price I couldnt say no. I feel like maybe I could have gotten them down a few hundred more but I think it's well worth every penny that I gave for it.
  • I'm looking at a 2008 Frontier LE, long bed with leather pkg., ABLS, air bags & moonroof. MSRP is $29730 - first offer from dealer is $22000.Any thoughts on getting a better price/ Should it be better?
    Also, any experience with the leather seats? Are they too warm in the summer and too cold in the winter? I'm in NJ. Does the leather hold up in a pick up?

    samadams2: Great price! Which transmission?

    choochoojohn: Dealers who can qualify for the Nissan $5,000 bonus for meeting quota seem to be selling 2008 V6's around $8,000 to $9,000 off MSRP (OTD). At the very least, they'll should you $7,500 off, cuz' that still leaves them with as much profit as if they'd sold it to you at MSRP with no rebate or bonus in place.

    That said, not all dealers will meet the quota level, and may not have the $5K to play with.
  • It has the auto trans. I used to be a manual only kinda guy, but after driving my work truck with auto trans I've realized that NOT having to shift all the damned time is kinda nice. Not to mention in my experience looking and debating to buy one in the last 2 years its harder than hell to find a 4x4 CC with the manual trans. Also I live in the mountains and it gets pretty cold up here in the winter, so I'm gonna look into getting a remote starter which I've wanted for years now but never been able to get one because of my manual Ranger.
