Nissan Titan Prices Paid and Buying Experience

  • The Nissan dealers in my area seem to have a surplus of '05 Titans sitting around. Has anyone had any luck getting a really great deal on one of these '05 models? I just can't help wondering why there are so many left. Are the dealers holding out for some reason? Should I hold out until first of the new year? Thanks for the help! -Bill
  • I am new to this board, but I was hoping that some of you have some advice for me.
    I am looking for a '04 or '05 Titan with low to no miles on it. I am curious about when to buy, the dealers seem to be having good deals on the 05's trying to get them out the door right now. But should I wait until after the new year? Is there an advantage to this?
    Anyway, just wondering when the best time to buy would be. Thanks.
  • I always try to buy near the end of the year, the dealers want to move out the old inventory. I would recommend looking at Carmax website, White Marsh, MD is a Carmax with a Nissan Franchise. The price of their trucks is posted and not negotiable any further. I just copied their price of the truck I wanted to buy and let my local dealers match it or not, then I let them match or beat the trade value. Fortunately for me my local dealer did match the Carmax price then beat the trade value. There is a $2,000 rebate on the '06, there was a $3000. rebate on the '05 before Dec. 1, I don't know what it is now. This is a great way to cut the bull out of the dealing. (One of the dealers I worked with could not match the Carmax price,$1,300 higher, so I know it is darn close to as good of a deal available at the time that I was going to get). So far I am very pleased with the improvements of the '06 LE 4x4 Titan over the '04 Titan that I traded. I especially love the new hydraulic assisted tailgate.
  • Did you get a good deal on a leftover '05 Titan? I'm looking at picking up an '05 Titan Crew SE and hoping to get a great deal. I don't NEED it but would love to get one and trade in my '01 Pathfinder if I can get the right deal. Thanks - Tom
  • I've gotten 4 quotes for a 2006 SE King Cab with Tow and Traction Package (and the ubiquitous SE "Popular" Package). They range from 19.3% to 22.6% off MSRP. Basically invoice to invoice-$300 less current rebate of $2750.

    FWIW, last Sept. I got my 05 KC LE for around $85xx off msrp, which I thought was a very generous deal at the time. Good 'ol non-negotiable CARMAX was only offering around $7200 off MSRP at the time, and no other Nissan dealer would get close to that price for this truck. Maybe I got lucky. Who knows? I don't have the numbers in front of me, and I'm old, so I can't exactly recall what they were, but if memory serves, that was very close to 23-24% off MSRP. I think the MSRP was $36xxx, give or take.. So I would say that I think you're getting a pretty good deal with what you already have....but

    Know what I'd do for grins if I were in your shoes? Since I love playing "the game", I'd take your best deal and take it to another dealer and ask for some additional silly amount off -- say an extra $500 or so. That's what I did and I was amazed that I got a bite. Don't be "pushy"; rather, just ask! Of course, it depends on all those other car buying 'factors' but it never hurts to ask.

    Good luck. It would be great to hear how your hunt turns out. I'm not a dealer or anything, just a curious Titan lover. Thanks! dave

    Total w/ Options $30,523.00 $27,279.00
    Rebate $2,250.00 $2,250.00

    Total $28,273.00 $25,029.00
    -----------------------------------------------------------

    I'd been working with the sales rep since back in November 05. I was relocating to AZ so I told him i'd give him last chance to beat any offers once I got to Phoenix.

    Anyways, we agreed on a 06 Titan Crew Cab 4x2 in Majestic Blue with bench seats, bedliner, and mats only for $23,000.00

    I got to the dealership and they didn't have that vehicle. (Funny thing was on my way there, a different sales rep from another dealer called to say his best offer was $23,458 for an XE with preferred pkg. I told him about the $23k offer for an SE and he laughed and said they would do a switch when I got there.)

    Both the first sales rep and his manager showed on their computer how the vehicle was still available but they could not find it on the lot.

    Well long story short, they asked if we could find another vehicle. Sure it took me an extra hour to locate a similarly optioned vehicle. There was one in Smoke but since i'm down here in the valley of the sun, I figured i'd go with a lighter color and opted for the silver with additional options of bed extender, underseat storage. We never even discussed the tint and clearcoat paint protection until AFTER the vehicle had been detailed for drive off.

    We settled for $23,200.00 which still seemed a pretty good deal. I had to go to IKEA while they did a dealer exchange with another dealer but I got my truck out the door with 25miles only!

    -----------------------------------------------------------
    Sale Price $25,450.00 ///($23,200.00)// w/ rebate.
    Tax $1,879.20
    Tire Tax $5.00
    Doc Fees $369.00
    License Fee $444.00
    Title Fee $4.00

    SUBTOTAL $28,151.20

    Down (incl Rebate) $12,250.00

    Finance $15,901.20 @ 5.99%

    If you are in the Phoenix area and would like a great deal, I will be more than glad to refer to sales person and dealership. Mine was $7,323.00 off MSRP or 24% discount!

    BTW, the silver color was my main color choice until recently so I can't complain about the color. Driving this one which has the captain's chairs is awesome. I'm glad I didn't get the Blue with bench seats now.

    Props to Power Nissan here in Tempe, AZ. Southeast of Phoenix off I-10 on Auto row. (Seriously, there are like 16 different car make dealerships on this little loop.) :shades:

    The reason you are seeing lots of '05 Titans around in comparison to the '06 models is b/c of the similarity in incentives. I think it's only a $250 dollar difference between models. Who wouldn't go with the newer at that point
  • Hello,

    I am wondering if it is a good idea to buy/lease a 06 titan? Has Nissan fixed any of the problems from 03-05 models? I would really like to get some feed back.
  • nvbrohoenvbrohoe Posts: 2
    HELL NO...!!!
    I have an 06 titan - SE 4x4 - worst vehicle i have ever owned...horrible gas mileage - about 10-12 mpg at best - crappy interior materials - basic features for a not basic price - depending on how much you drive, gas can cost you a ton - i'm using about $180 PER WEEK - OUTRAGEOUS...!!!
    I will never again buy another Nissan anything - their vehicles are just cheap in quality and overpriced in comparison to Honda & Toyota. I'm heading to the Toyota dealership next...
    good luck :mad:

    Well, I must say that I have an 05 LE Crew Cab and I LOVE it! It is loaded. After researching this site and all the previous post before purchasing mine, I found that "Supposedly" all the Brake problems were resolved. I specifically looked for an 05 that was built "Later" in the year to ensure the kinks were resolved. As of now, I have 5700 miles on it and "knock on wood" I have had no problems. I get around 14-16 miles a gallon depending on what type of driving I am doing but I remember reading a post on this site prior to purchsing my vehicle and it just hit to the bone. It read something like "Well we all know that a big full size truck either this one or another model is going to burn gas prior to puchasing it, so there is no reason to complain about it after the fact like its a big surpise" That's what trucks do and we should expect it. I use mine mostly for weekend cruising and just plain "Looking Good :)" Now, if you plan to use it as a truck to go back and fourth to work and you work 20 miles or so one way or its your primary "do everything" vehicle..Well, expect to spend a lot for gas. I can only speak for myself and my experience thus far and it mine has been very pleasant. I bought mine, by the way, becuase I don't really buy new vehicles every other year. I will probably keep this one forever and if after 10 years or so I plan to get another I would just give this one to my Dad. Good Luck! Hopes this helps some.

    I worked on a deal for a 06 Titan SE 4x4, no extras. Sticker is like 29,500. i can get it for 24,000 even. Is it a pretty good deal, it's not exactly the color i wanted but i can compromise.

    Only option on this baby was some floor mats. I figured I could add a lot of stuff as after market parts (if I need them). I mainly just wanted a basic pick up truck. Previously I had looked at the Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier, Pontiac Vibe, and even the Honda Element. I couldn't pass up the all around package on the Titan though, plus to get a v-8 at this price level is amazing. Speaking of price I got the XE with the floor mats for $18062 +TTL. That is over $6000 off the sticker price with the destination charge included. I bought at Continental Nissan in Coutryside, IL (just outside of Chicago). The experience was wonderful plus they have a car wash on site and offer lifetime free car washes. Not too bad IMO, not I'm going to add a Line-x spray on bed liner as my first aftermarket add on.

    Joe,
    I'm looking for the same truck. Where in Phoenix did you get your deal?
    Bob Lindgren
  • I've been offered a price on a 06 Titan SE (Popular, Trac, Tow Pkgs) for about $2000 below invoice, including rebates. I'm pretty sure I can get that price much lower. There are several dealerships that have very similar vehicles in stock so I should be able to get into an apples-to-apples bidding competition. Having said that, I wanted to wait until the 2007 models come out and then make a purchase on a 2006. Would I be able to get a significantly better deal waiting until the end of summer or am I only looking at a couple of hundred dollars difference and limited inventory at that time?

    Thanks for your help.

    It all depends on what you need to accomplish with a truck. For towing, you can't beat it for the price. It's great for hauling a family of five. It's fun to drive and gets a lot of compliments for its' appearance.

    As any intelligent consumer would know, the Titan's fuel consumption is high - as it will be for any heavy-hauler. You can't get a lot of power without paying for it. If you don't need power and/or room, consider a smaller (wind cross-section), lighter, weaker (6-banger) truck. That said, the Titan fits my needs perfectly! I'm happy because it does what I want, it's fun to drive, and I can afford to fill the tank.

    Comments about the interior quality not being good are subjective and silly from my perspective. Our other car is a loaded Volvo XC. These two vehicles should not be compared. From my perspective, trucks shouldn't be luxurious. If that's what you want, you should ask yourself why you're buying a truck. Trucks are meant for utility, to be kicked around. I considered the $40K to $50K trucks with the fancy interiors, but I couldn't shake the feeling that it was for the ego-trip types or contractors who live in their trucks and can pay for it with pre-tax income.

    FWIW, Carmax will take $6,500 off MSRP for a truck that is comparable to yours. I checked another "no haggle low price" dealer in my area and they offered $5,700 off MSRP on their web site. Last Sept. when I bought my 05 KC LE, I was able to get a fantastic deal, but I think CCs are not discounted as much as KCs are, but I don't know that for a fact. Another low price dealer here lists a truck similar to yours for around $29,282, or about $5,650 off MSRP. CarsDirect.com indicates that, in this area, $29,245 or about $5,680 off MSRP, is a reasonable price. So you gotta believe that if Carmax will quote their price with no haggling, the others would obviously match it pretty easily.

    These prices are, of course, plus TTL and fees.

    When I bought last year I found dealers willing to go a good bit below what they advertised in the paper or on the net. I was convinced there were hidden incentives for them to move the 05 models to clear the way for the 06s (in some cases, pretty hefty incentives). For example, my truck MSRP'ed for just over 36, and I was OTD for 28,5. Go figure.

    Good luck. These are great trucks. I'm still on my honeymoon.
