    thanks that is what I was leaning towards. Just trying to get this sales guy to come down in price to around $42,500 which is invoice, but he is not budging since they don't have this suv on the lot and has to get it from another dealer....
  • My LE with the trim and options I wanted was also not on the dealer's lot. But he sold it to me at (invoice-rebate) after locating and bringing it from a dealer nearby. Since new models will be coming out soon, dealers will be willing to go down on price. You may also try carsdirect.com. They were also able to get the same model at about the same price. Good luck.

    I have received a quote for $6,500 off the MRSP of $44,820 for a 2004 armada LE 4x4 with dvd and sunroof. Is this a good deal with the nissan rebate?

    In Kansas City, they advertised up to $8000 off MSRP on Armada's. I called and the sales manager stated that was on LE's. But my hunch is that would have to be a technology package ($3900) equipped model. I am actually going to look and drive an Armada this morning.

    One catch for the $8000 of new Armada's is qualify for $500 college grad rebate. Yes, fully loaded units coming in around $47,000.
    I was not blown away by the Armada but impressed with the content included. Engine and drivetrain seemed strong. I notice what was probably the resonance issue many are experiencing in a non-sunroof LE that had an 04-04 manufacture sticker.
    So, still looking around at the moment.

    The college grad $500 is somewhat laughable on the Armada. You have to have graduated with a college degree within the past 2 years. I would imagine unless you are getting an advanced degree the payments might be a push.

    Went and test drove a second Armada today. This 4X4 LE had the technology package and no DVD player. Salesman is great, no pressure just wanting to make things happen.

    This is the same dealer offering up to $8000 off Armada's. Of course, that one sold! but their price came out to about $6700 off sticker. They were working pretty hard on the trade end but we were still $1000 off.
    The test drive did not blow me away and make me NEED/WANT the Armada. Guess I just have not made the emotional connection yet.

     The build date was 06/04 and the resonance issue did not seem to rear its ugly head. I took an extended ride on the freeway, only negative was the pogo stick type ride over the expansion joints (they were about 10 feet apart) on the highway. I agree there are areas where you can see the cost cutting but honestly seems like a good value.
      I will admit I am a little spooked by the problems with the roof and brakes people are having.
    I think another $1000 would have done it though!

    So I am an official owner after thoroughly reading every ones posts on the Armada. I am picking up my LE 4x4 fully loaded tomorrow morning. I have taken the vehicle out twice, once just on the local roads the second time took it on major highway and all the way home(wanted to see if it was going to fit in the garage). Final price paid for the vehicle was $42850. I love this truck...has everything I wanted, although I agree some items need attention..ie lights on steering wheel controls etc...I truly hope all problems have been fixed by now....because I dont want to be disappointed..
  • I think I am getting a nice price for my 04 Galaxy Nissan Armada fully loaded (Techno and DVD packages) for $42,500 (about $50 below invoice). I did NOT use the rebate but will be using the 2% financing. I should be picking up the car this week. Any thoughts out there before I give a final signature to purchase??? If you know of better deals out there, please let me know.
  • I think the only deal that can beat that probably is a deal I saw in the news paper today from Rt. 46 Nissan in Totowa, New Jersey. I guess you can negotiate the price you want for the ARMADA, say the invoice price. When you buy this ARMADA, you get a 2003 Nissan Sentra "free". I didn't call the dealer to see what conditions are attached because I bought my ARMADA two weeks ago. If I didn't already buy mine, I' have given them at least a try. Knowing the fuel consumption of Armada, I'd have taken a Sentra and used it for routine trips and used Armada only when needed. I hope somebody will benefit from this.
  • Thanks for the reply. I will ask my dealer about what sounds like an awesome deal.
  • Well, good luck. I don't think it is possible that the bugs are worked out. You will have problems. There is not one vehicle that is problem free. It is impossible. I have talked to consumer affairs and basically have found them just to be note takers but no power to do anything. Either this or they won't do anything. You name it and I have had problems with it. Be prepared to have new brakes put on at about 5k miles. I am waiting on the fix for them now. They don't even have enough parts yet for the fix (some new shims have been added since the brake fix didn't work) so that means they didn't use them on the ones that came off of the line. Consumer affairs told me they are back logged to try and get the parts to fix them and they are glad they talked to me so they can put me into the first allotment. They are hoping this will take care of the brake problem. The roof probably still isn't fixed since it is more than likely a design flaw. Listen clostly over bumps. Think that is wind noise on the interstate? Probably the roof flexing. Oh, I was just told by my service department that the roof is supposed to do that and that they all flex. It is normal. Can you believe? They refuse to do the fix on my roof because they don't hear the sound. I drove it today and the low rumble was at its best. Anyway, good luck and don't wait to take your vehicle in if you have a problem. Nissan service sucks and you will find that out. This is my first and probably my last.

    that deal I read too in the paper. However, fine print stated only 1 on lot. I had called and it was sold the prior day. Nissan in Totowa was not willing to match what the Stanhope Nissan was offereing as far as price and service dept. stuff, like tires for life...free wash and detail with every service and free loaner for all services performed. To me that is a dealer bending over backwards to make their costumer happy...
  • Hi,
    How does this service from Stanhope Nissan work? Especially this tires for life deal, do you pay extra for this? I bought a Road Hazard warranty when I bought the Armada. After I came home and looked carefully, it sounded like a waste of money since your OEM tire warranty is for three years. Anyway, could you please elaborate on the service terms at Stanhope Nissan? Thanks.
  • The tire warranty is 3 years?? My tires are almost worn out at 12,800 miles. The dealer told me I have no warranty on tires so I had to buy a new set. They would not even align it since they told me the alignment warranty was out at 12,000 miles. (told me the TSB is only through the regular warranty period of 12k miles) I took it to Sears and had the 4 wheel alignment done and it was off. Nissan said my tire wear is normal.
  • As long as I perform all services and warranties at the Stanhope Nissan Dealership they will provide you with: Tires for the life on all vehicles except Infiniti's, wash and detail with any service and a loaner car when brought in for service....amazing deal cant be beat anywhere. I am not aware of any other Nissan dealer in NJ that does this for their costumers
  • After trying company fleet program I gave the Costco program a try. Early this year it was $500 over invoice. Now it is down to Dealer invoice. The problem was I wasn't to happy with the sales team. Net it out I paid $37763 ($300 below invoice) Manufactured 8/04. I skipped the NAV unit because I didn't like the placement. But other than that I was very happy with the dealer. Also happy with the trade value of my used car. All around a good deal.
  • Wondering what kind of payments I could expect?

    Hi junk_food - you need to provide a little bit more information to get an idea from other shoppers. What options? What area of the country?

    Providing as much info as possible is more likely to get you the best feedback.

  • New to the boards here,tho ive been reading them for quite some time. So my wife an i finaly decided to buy. We picked LE,4x4,Tech pkg,splash guards an floor mats. Out the door price $41990. Had to take it in black tho (wanted Canteen) but in that color with the 2nd row bench seats didnt seem to exist.

    I got a quote for 41K of fully loaded 4x4 LE with DVD, Sunroof and NAV systems - is this nice or what? It includes the 2K rebate from Nissan. What do you think?
  • What is the invoice on that? I would think that with the 05's coming, getting invoice for 04's would take just a little haggling on your part.

    By the way, I'm interested in the same thing you are, but in the 4x2 version.
  • Anybody out there buy an '04 lately? If so, I'm wondering what kind of deals are being made.

    Also, if the 05's are out... What is the asking price? Hopefully, not near MSRP.

    Thanks.

    I just bought an Armada LE with Technology Package (Nav, Dual Zone AC, Sunroof, Power Lift Gate, Power 6-way Passenger seat), FLoor Mats, Cargo Mat, Splash Guards, Cargo Area Tray.

    MSRP was $42,670 + plus a $2000 so called mkt adjustment for a total of $44,670.

    We got it for $35,998. More than $2,000 under Invoice. It seems like it was a good deal...
    Ended up financing it for 60mo with a 1% rate....

    SO far it is great!
  • rodgod,

    Wow, that sounds great like a great price! I'm just curious as to what dealership you got your deal with?

    The invoice was $47,000, I got it for $40,650 including the rebate - very nice, love the Tec package and DVD entertainment with tire pressure monitoring and navigation system.
  • tt30tt30 Posts: 31
    That's not bad, $6,000 off the retail. Was it 4x4 or 4x2? Nissan had a promotion of $6K in our area for all Armadas, ended on Nov 1st - not sure if they continue the promotion.
  • OVER THE LAST WEEK I'VE BEEN PRICING 04 AND 05'S. HERE'S THE BEST PRICES I'VE GOT SO FAR WITH 3 DEALERS CALLING ME BACK TOMORROW (MON 8 NOV.04)

    It is a good price considering they offer $7000 discount now. The mileage might be high on these cars, so them them out (I know some offered me $7K discount on the truck that the son of the Nissan dealership was driving, 3,000 miles.) So be careful.
