    Just purchased 2008 KC SE 4x4 V6 auto (red) with VTP for $17,221 OTD.

    From: Lithia Nissan of Medford Oregon.

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

    (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.

    Here's how I presented the offer in a PDF attachment via e-mail:

    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.

    samadams2: By my reckoning then, MSRP was about $27,800 on that rig, which means you got about $8,800 off! (Not counting the bug guard.)

    My previous truck was a 5-speed manual hardbody, but I could find an SE V6 4x4 KC manual in my area. I'm getting used to the auto (and my wife is very happy now that we have A/C, auto & cruise control).
  • Yeah I knew it was close to $28K for it. I'm still not even sure how much exactly I paid for the truck, I'm figuring around $17,700. I just know I went in there knowing if I could get it OTD for $20K I was gonna bite. We actually made the deal for $20K OTD with a 5.75% APR, but when it came time to finalize they jumped my APR up to 6.75%. When I got pissed because of the change he knocked another $1K off if I accepted the higher APR. 6.75% still aint bad so I was Very hasty to sign the paperwork and get it over with. I was so eager I couldnt hardly remember how to write my middle name. And to top it all off, I had planned on making down payment of $3K, but as it turned out I didnt need to, so now I'm blowing that money on accessories. I just ordered some black powder coated Westin Platinum Series nerf bars, and a Bakflip G2 tonneau cover last night. This week I'm hoping to get the front windows tinted to match the back and then get it to the dealership and have fog lights and a K&N cold air intake installed. Then maybe a custom catback exhaust and full audio makeover as soon as I can get my Ranger sold. Its gonna be one sweet ride when everything comes together. Its definately the love of my life at the moment.
  • After I bought my rig (see above), I helped a buddy buy the same rig (even the same color) except it also has the Tow Package. With the additional info I had from my deal, he was able to get a deal that was about $500 better than mine.

    Needless to say, I'm gonna expect him to buy me a good dinner!

    My friend got some additional infor from the dealer and it looks like dealers' actual "net zero" cost is almost $10K off MSRP on the V6's. (Figured as: $2,500 (rebate) + $5,000 (quota incentive) + $500-700 (holdback) + (difference between MSRP and invoice).

    So, it should be possible to get a deal around $9K off MSRP.
  • I dont know if one can believe a word anybody at the dealership says, but the finance guy told me that the only thing they were making off my deal was the $599 DOC fee. That they were actually gonna save money by not having to pay interest on the old stock they had, and once the 08's cleared they were gonna order very few 09's. Either way I dont think they possibly could have made too much. Only advice I would give to people looking to buy is, dont offer a penny more than you are willing to pay because they'll accept offers lower than you would think. And I agree with an earlier post either from here of some other forum, that production will be adjusted on the 2009's and they wont be as cheap as any remaining 2008's. Granted the 09's will be a little bit nicer, with some of the plasticy interior broken up with various materials, and the thermostat controls are nicer snd they even come with nicer wheels But I seriously doubt you'll ever find $10K or 30% off on the 09's. The time to buy is definately now and lowball the hell outta them.
  • Piante,

  • I need a bit of help if you can. I am looking to purchase A 2008 frontier crew cab in the Central New Jersey area. I am getting the usual salespeople nonsense, and I am wondering if their is anyone who has recently rec'd a good deal in the jersey area? A 4x2 is fine, the only thing that is important is that it is a Crew cab, and is Auto. I have been dealing with Pinebelt, and they are Horrible, I rec'd a couple of bites from Hudson Nissan in Jersey City, but that is about it. Thank you......
