  • My local dealer takes the msrp sticker the adds 2514.00 for a regional adjustment. What is that all about?

    bah,

    what region do you live in? i would just ignore that and negotiate like you normally would. if they dont budge, or try to push you onto the regional markup - walk. simple as that. there are plenty of nissan dealers around you i am sure!

  • I just got off the phone with one dealer. He says that Nissan is offering a $4500 rebate on the XE Titan now( I am not taking this as gospel). I have no idea if this guy is just blowing smoke up my rear but he thinks "his boss" can get me into an 4x4 XE Titan for around $20-21K after the rebates kick in. I don't really like the Titan's w/o the chrome in the front, but a 20k 4x4 Titan will be hard to pass up. This should be interesting, but I somehow feel I am going to be dissapointed.

    dont bite on that - all nissan dealers have the same incentives - and there is no additional incentive on the XE titan vs. the rest...he's just trying to get you in the door...i bet he's adding his own discount to the rebate...

    that seems ridiculous then...i cant think of ANY region in which there needs to be a $2500 markup...bah!

  • I kinda had that feeling. The salesman, "his boss", is supposed to be contacting me shortly. I'll fax him a credit app but I am not driving 80 miles down there unless we have something concrete to work around.

    I put around 300 miles in on Sunday. I ain't doing that again unless I have a good reason.

    Thanks all for the quick replies...Your deal of $24,750 sounds good. I would appreciate advice on my deal.
    Titan KC SE
    4x4 (no offroad)
    Popular Pkg
    Big Tow

    The salesman told me $24,500 and its mine 7 weeks ago-- I drove to the dealership and was not at all satisfied with the service esp. concerning hidden charges and markups- So, we stopped contact for the almost the past two months...He called yesterday and asked if I was still interested in this deal, that his "boss" was very interested in wrapping this up...Is that a good price or could I go lower since its been 2 months since he gave me that original quote? Thanks in advance
  • thenebeanthenebean Posts: 1,124
    i cant remember if the rebates have changed since 2 months ago (they may have...) however, if you question their service and their integrity, why would you go back, regardless of the price? please do not reward the dealership who has not treated you as you wish to be treated with a sale. take that number, and go somewhere else that you feel comfortable with, and see if they will match/come close to it. if you go back to the first dealer, where you were not comfortable, and buy a car, they will think its ok to treat customers as they have treated you, since you ended up buying...

    Thanks Thene, the only problem is that I can't find another one in the state and when I go to other dealerships to get a transfer they say that because its not on their lot they cant give me that deal- Is this true? Thanks
  • Got off the phone with "his boss" and he says that he wasn't sure about the $4500 rebate now on the XE. His out for his man was that the guy "thought" the new incentive program was going to be around $4500 for the XE. The salesman says they get the info any new incentives online today but it hasn't been posted. I'm supposed to be contacted later today. I don't want call my target dealer, the one that has "my" truck, until I get some more info and offers from these other guys.

    I called one of my friends on the phone, he says I am being stupid horsing around like this, and "just go and get the truck already".
  • thenebeanthenebean Posts: 1,124
    well...there is a cost associated with locating and transporting a vehicle - though it shouldnt be a huge difference...see what kind of deals they CAN do for you, and then you can go from there - anything more than $200 for transporting the vehicle back is too much.

    Thanks, the dealership that I want to purchase through is 80 miles from where the truck is. But, they say they cant beat the others price- but back to the original...Do you think that the $24,500 is the best I can do even though it was so long ago?

    Hi,
    Where were you given this offer? I want that truck with those exact options and that is the best price I have seen so far - I am in SoCal but am willing to travel a long way for the right price,
    Cheers
  • menmyjp , I went to the Titan forum and 6 month ago people were paying $26k or more for their SE 4x4s. So 24.5 sounds good unless they offer some kind of killer incentive tomorrow :D. That 24.5k is AFTER the rebate is applied right? The truck I am looking at is just like the one you want I think except that it has the OR pkg. I am looking at $27, 250 - $2500 = $24, 750. If I do take this deal I will make suer they don't tack on any hidden stuff on the contract.
  • menmyjpmenmyjp Posts: 19
    Right roger that, its $ 24,500 after rebates.
  • menmyjpmenmyjp Posts: 19
    Thene, Thanks again for your help! I just got off the phone with the dealership that I want to purchase the truck through. However, I am dissapointed in my resonse. He said the best they could do was $25,773. Which is almost $1,300 more than what I can get the truck for. Whats your opinion on this difference, also considering that its no more than 2 an half hours round trip for them to get it...THanks

    copied right from our nissan dealer website:

    Current Configuration
    11615
    2005 TITAN 4X4 SE KING AUTO

    K11-K
    SMOKE, STEEL


    Invoice MSRP
    BASE $25,581 $28,300

    FLO $90 $120
    FLOOR MATS

    POP $954 $1,100
    SE POP W/BENCH ST

    TOW $347 $400
    TOW PACKAGE

    USS $111 $150
    UNDER SEAT STORAG

    50S $0 $0
    50 STATE EMISSION

    Freight Charge $670 $670


    Total $27,753 $30,740

    if you take the invoice price and subtract $2500, you are looking at $25,253 plus tax, reg, and doc. if the truck above looks like what you are looking at, see if you cant get them to $25,000 plus tax, reg, and doc. who knows (in all honesty) how legit that other deal was, and with really cheap prices like that, you'll get scalped on financing, or they'll make you buy warranties, etc...the numbers are always made up somewhere else...

    it doesnt hurt to give it a shot!

    good luck!

  • I talked to my target dealer with the truck I want on the phone. He gave me the old song and dance about how I should be happy to get a deal like this in the first place. Anyways I said I'd come down there and write him a check if he could bring the Titan down to $24,400, or 26, 900 w/o the rebate, I'd buy today. He said "alright, let's get it done".

    I have a really bad feeling some massive rebates are going to be handed down and I am going to regret this but oh well. Everyone is telling me to do it, so here goes!!! At least I know my gut instinct was right if the prices come down.

    But if I even smell of an added hidden fee or bloated finance charge, I'm walkin.

    Thanks for everyone's help!! Wish me luck.

    if you always wait for something better, you'll never get anything done! :-P

    you are getting a great deal, and don't worry about what the rebates do - if it makes you feel better, when i bought my sentra se-r spec v, there were no rebates at all, now they have $2500! no big deal, i can afford what i pay, and i love my car - so who cares!

    good luck! im sure you'll love the truck :D
