2013 and earlier Nissan Murano Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • bitoy11bitoy11 Posts: 2
    Hey guys! Kind of interested buying Murano SL awd. Will somebody help me what's the OTD. I'm from Tampa. Thanks
  • johnzeejohnzee Posts: 9
    I have a 2007 SL Murano (touring package) that will be due for return in July. There are still 3 payments left (39 mo lease).

    Current payoff $20,167
    Amount due in July $19,084

    Can I negotiate a lower purchase price with Nissan Financing or are they pretty much firm with the payoff amount?

    I was informed that the only way to purchase the car is via the dealer where I leased the car from, is that true? Few years ago I purchased my leased Toyota Highlander and I just paid the payoff amount + tax directly to the lender, no dealer involved.

    If I need to go to the dealer, what fees do I expect to pay besides purchase option fee and sales tax?

    Thank you.
  • This is a re-post of my purchase details. I apologize for re-posting, but given its the last two days of the Nissan buying year - I was hoping to get the thread back on track for its purpose. I'd be happy to answer any questions on my our purchasing experience.

    Color: Glacier Pearl/ Beige Interior

    MSRP --- 34,745
    Invoice --- 31,791
    Paid ---- $29,537 ( includes destination charge and assigning of $1250 rebate dollars over to dealer)


    1. Leather
    2. Premium
    3. Dual Moonroof
    4. Carpeted Floor Mats and Cargo Mat
    5. Accessory Value Package
    6. Splash Guards
    7. Bumper Protector
    8. Bug Protector ( Black Plastic Shield across front of hood)

    This was a good deal, but not a great one. After dealer hold back their cost was about 28,800 as a guess, but I believe in leaving meat on the bone too. Its the end of the year and just go straight to a manager and help him or her with end of year sales numbers and help yourself out to a bit of a deal as well. Mileage at time of purchase was 15 miles on the car. Manufacture date was 12/09. Car must have been sitting for 2 months. Saw the same at other dealership too.

    This is Houston, Texas, land of a gazillion Nissan Dealers. After TTL and Document fee total OTD was $31,780.

    Nicely done loach. Personally, I hope mike sticks around and generates more disdain. This is one of the most amusing discussions on my watch list. :)

    after going on vacation in the mountains and freezing snow, the silver grill has bubbling on it. Has anyone had this problem. My murano is 2004 so not under warranty, took it to the dealer but basically nothing they will do about it. I heard there is a 1-8-- number that we can call, does anyone have it. also annoying is the drivers sun visor keeps falling down, the deal wants 350.00 for that. HELP.

    The topic is Prices Paid... not, about each other, or how Nissan screwed you.

    Next one in the pool with an off-topic post just might get a "CarSpace holiday".

    Thanks for your cooperation...

  • Hi, We purchased a 2010 Murano LE at the end of December and at the time we got 2.9% financing and 3% off invoice. Benefit then was to get the sales tax write off.

    The same dealer is offering Nissan employee pricing to employees of large companies which is over 4% off invoice, 0% financing and 2 years maintenance, guessing to compete with Toyota incentives.

    Anyone know if you can do better on your own or is the employee the lowest deal.

    We are thinking of getting either another Murano LE or a Maxima sedan....we absolutely love the Murano LE.

    Thanks, Bob

    Hey that is interesting. What was the final price. I got an SL with moonroof and leather. for $31,050 in december with the same incentives. I was wondering if anyone has gotten a quote around this price. The MSRP was 36,110. It had some extras like mats and etc. Just wondering how my deal is still holding out. I also traded my 2007 S AWD in for $18K (17K miles). In any case its a great car and the stereo is a killer. My mom has a Lexus with the premium stereo and it is no competition for the Bose system on the Murano. Highly recommend the Bose and Moonroof. No need for the Tech stuff its a waste of time. Take care. Happy hunting. NJ area
  • Nissan website shows no deals whatsoever.

    No rebates

    No 0% financing

    Looks like the deals are over until the end of the model year in the fall.

    Well, it may be you might have to until fall for a new promotion, but I bet in a month or so there will be something new. And there very easily could be something going on from Nissan to the dealers that is not published to the consumer. I bought a Murano a year ago last November for $1,800 under the invoice price when there were no rebates/cash back offers of any kind (there was a 0% financing, but I got that too, in addition to the $1800 under invoice price). Maybe the dealer was just taking a bath on the car, but I doubt it, since there were a number of folks posting here with similar deals in several parts of the US. (which was how I got the idea to offer at $2K under invoice)

    Or maybe Nissan is selling so well they don't have to offer any kind of deals anymore! (yeah, right...)

    Patience is your friend.

  • The March Sales data for Nissan showed a whopping 44% increase in sales over March 2009. Annual sales period ended March 31st as well. All of this from an accounting perspective as well as shareholder pricing is a formula for less deals to be found for April, with a major sales decline likely, followed by better deals to be had shortly thereafter. Just an opinion.

    Just purchasing a 2010 SL with the Tech package and got it for 31,050 -which reflected a 1250 rebate.

    They are offering an extending service contract where you have no service costs for 5 years/75000 - cost is 2248. Any thoughts - is it worth the money?

    Not worth it for 90% of people.In 75k miles all you really need is oil changes,filter changes,fluid replacements and tire rotations as maintinence.

    That would not cost nearly the price they are asking,I could get all that done at a reputable mechanic for less than half of that.Just my opinion .....
  • interested in LE AWD with NAV - what is a great price. I have Pilots at 3% below invoice can I get close to that kind of deal on this car? Live in Chicagoland

  • Congrats on a good negotiation and great vehicle!
  • bezier,

    could you let me know which dealer your purchased this Murano from? You got a great deal! thanks
  • I've become increasingly interested in the Murano, and reading this forum has been a big help. My Nissan dealers in Miami are all trying to quote me full MSRP for a 2010 AWD Murano with 360/leather/premium, $36,650.

    I sent an email basically saying look, I've priced this car out on Edmunds a hundred times over. I know what the true market value is, and even that seems high compared to what others are reporting paying. I told them I'm interested in the car, but only if I get a good market price on it. I'll see what they come back with. I'm not paying their inflated prices. I'm more than willing to drive my old car until I get a price I'm happy with.
  • mikesmuranomikesmurano Posts: 118
    That seems high from my experience; especially when you consider how many quality issues the Murano seems to have.

    The track record does not look good. Read the customer service thread. Geeze.

    Go to and see what deals are available near your zipcode. They will be lower than msrp. Quick check near me yielded $3750 off msrp includes a $500 factory rebate. The rep you talked to was a scammer.
  • Hi.

    You haven't specified the exact model; ie: is it an SL or an LE? It looks like an SL as a guess. Why don't you look at the FWD models instead of the AWD models? Although I haven't seen one single transfer case failure or problem in the 2010 models, there are many in the 2009 models and previous. Getting the FWD model eliminates this risk entirely.
  • Has anyone leased a Murano under their current lease rate promotion? Nissan is currently offering a $299/month lease for 39 months with $2999 down for an S model with AWD, floor mates and splash guards with an MSRP of $31,050 and a net capitalized cost of $25,749. I'm looking to get an equal or better deal on and SL model with options. Before I go off and shop around, I was wondering If anyone knows the money factor on this current deal and depreciation %. Thanks.
  • only spent a day negotiating price with different dealers and got the vehicle
    it is a SL 2WD includes:
    invoice $32540, MSRP $35550
    final price is $31540 + TTL
    I know I can get better deals if I wait some time or go to a dealer in different state, but I don't have much more energy on car shopping...

    I believe a price ~$1500 below invoice is very possible in the country.

    St Louis, MO - West County Nissan.

    Black/black 2010 SL FWD
    Tech package
    Leather package
    Premium package
    Splash guards, rear bumper protector, floormats, and roof rail crossbars
    First 4 oil changes free
    Invoice: $33,9XX. MSRP: $37,160
    $32,335 OTD, including $199 "Admin Fee" but NOT including TTL

    We seemed to benefit from an internal screw-up due to an ~$800 price increase that occurred a few months ago (the original quote we received was for a pre-price-increase vehicle, and the quote was never changed although the vehicle we ultimately ended up with was post-price-increase). This became a problem to the dealership only after they had obtained the car from another dealership, we had inspected/okayed the car, procured the money, cut the check, been at the dealership to complete paperwork for an hour, etc. They initially tried to split the $800 increase with us but, to their credit, ultimately honored their original quote after we pushed back. Other than the 11th hour confrontation over the price increase (which ultimately worked out in our favor), we had a pleasant buying experience with this dealership and felt we were treated fairly. Their initial offer to us was $1000 under invoice - $500 dealership discount off invoice plus $500 Nissan rebate.

    So I had been shopping a Ford Edge, but didn't like, well...dull. Looked at a Mazda 7 then went into Nissan and really liked the Murano, this was yesterday. Priced at the dealer I test drove at, numbers were ridiculous. Did an Edmunds price broadcast last night, figuring last day of month, quarter and possibly fiscal(6/30/2010) got responses from 4 dealers. Went with this, bought it today.

    Silver/black 2010 SL AWD
    Leather package
    Premium package
    Splash guards, rear bumper protector, floormats, and roof rail crossbars
    First oil change free

    $32,780 NOT including TTL or admin fees. Financed total $34,950 - $1000 down, 0.9% Nissan financing

    I don't know ifit is the strongest deal from my end, but certainly quick and painless. Picking it up tomorrow. Will there be a 4th of July blowout sale...?

    Hi all.

    I a very interested in buying a 2010 LE loaded with leather wood grain, etc... pretty much all I can get but I don't need the nav. The prices here for that vehicle seems to run around 38-41 K or so how much should I pay for it to be a good deal? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I just turned in my 2009 Murano for a 2010 Lexus RX350. I was tired of dealing with all the problems with my Murano and the terrible service. If you are in the market for a Murano you really need to consider the Lexus RX350. The quality is far superior and the service is out of this world. Do yourself a favor and check out the RX350. You will not regret it and you can thank me later.
  • I dunno -here are the latest Lexus recalls;

    * 2007-2008 Lexus GS 350 and GS 350h

    * 2008 Lexus GS 460

    * 2006-2008 Lexus IS 350

    * 2007-2008 Lexus LS 460, LS 460 L

    * 2008 Lexus LS 600h L

    Total vehicles = 140,000 just for the engine spring recall alone. ( leads to stalled engines while in motion). I think the new 250 model got pulled from sales entirely within the last two weeks. Lexus is a mess right now.

    Read the customer service and CVT thread before buying a Murano.

    Buy Acura or Lexus if you want a premium Japanese vehicle.

    If not, Nissan will take you to bankruptcy.
