    Why do you consistently end every post with "Sorry about the spelling" without ever actually taking the time to learn how to spell?

  • I just wanted to tell everyone that A LOT of dealers are offering a flat 40% of MSRP on new Frontiers, Armadas, Quests, Xterras and Titans.

    No, I am not making this up. There are ads all over the place, from New Jersey to Kentucky to California.

    here is a deal for you in NY....I just leased an 2008 S Model. The NMAC lease deals are so good, I did not want to buy the vehicle...even for low 20s like this. I called these guys and they would not lease the car for this 21K number.

    got the great rate factor and let them take the car back after 39 months...It made the leasing a no brainer for me. My Toyota sales guy could only shake his head. Good ride for the money....If you want to buy...you'll be buying WAY under invoice.

    I just bought a 2008 Pathfinder LE V6 MSRP $38,535 for $27,000 plus TTL. Call up Glenn Nissan in Lexington Kentucky and ask for Jason Obradovich. They are having a crazy sale. I had to hold my vehicle with a credit card so that it would not get sold before I got there (I drove 90mi from Cincinnati). Definitely worth the drive! No gimmicks either. I was in and out of there in 30-45 minutes flat. Tell him Jason from Cincinnati sent ya and he might give you a bit more of a discount!

    Don't really mean to be a party pooper with many on the truck forums, but if one looks up a 38000 pathfinder on kbb.com (used 07 with average miles ) and finds it has a trade in value of about 17000 if that, (this is what your 08 will be worth in 12 months) 27000 (35% discount) is not really anything to write home about. Eating 10 grand to drive an unpopular gas consuming vehicle the first 12 months is really not that appealing.

    As for Crazy sale, its the dealers and factory going crazy to get rid of them and people crazy enough to buy them at such small discounts.

    Happy huntin

    well its a deal for me. If you think $12k off sticker is a 'small discount' best of luck to you buying any vehicle. This is a top of the line pathfinder, and the cheaper ones can be had for MSRPs of signifnicantly less (probably what you priced out). When i put the options on the one i bought into kbb.com, it gives me $23,700 as the private party value using 12k miles as an example. If this is the case, after a year, I would only have about $3300 in depreciation...tell me what you can find with the size and utility of the pathfinder for only $275 a month spent in the first year. Only a fool trades in his car...that's where the dealers make a ton of money. You are much better off selling individually.

    Most people don't NEED an SUV but buy it for the looks etc. I personally do need the 3rd row and extra space with my family as well as the 4wd in the winter. All cars take a hit, especially the first year and there is no sense buying the current generation hybrids as the mileage savings is not currently worth the extra cost of the vehicle. Why are you surfing the truck forums if you are not interested in trucks?
  • jfritschjfritsch Posts: 958
    Is that why I have such a hard time getting 12000 off a 18000msrp mazda3? (which has a trade in value of 14000 in a year)

    I don't know guy, I put in an 07 Le Pathfinder with average miles and a buncha options and barely got 18000. This is in line with all the 20mpg trucks. Even quoting private party when many people would have a hard time getting kbb trade in from a dealer is kinda irrelevant. Trying to find a private party buyer when they so low from being dumped by thousands would be a trick. If you looked up the private party of an 08 used that is rather meaningless.

    In most states, one is taxed on difference between the trade and the new purchase. In an 8% state, a 15000 trade to the dealer would save one about 1200 in taxes, which is why most people don't screw with the private party sale on higher priced vehicles. Doesn't always stop them from getting pinched on the trade but is why they do it nonetheless.

    Obviously, I don't have all the details on your deal.

    Good luck to all

    Several problems with your analysis. First, trade-in is not the value of a car as we all know you can't typically buy a car at trade in price. Second, you "bought" the first year depreciation and mileage for the spread between purchase price and year 1 value. Presumably that had some value, otherwise EVERYONE would buy used cars and that clearly is not true.

    BTW - I ran this myself using private party value and excellent condition, and it came back worth $23,600. So that kind of puts an end to that conversation.
