Thanks for your help!
By the way...it is a sharp car, esp the interior.
This is our 4th minivan (2 Dodge and 1 Toyota Sienna). This is my wife's car, and she is more impressed with this than any of the previous vans we have owned. This is the first Nissan product I have purchased and hope to have good luck with it. So far I'm impressed. This van has much more power than the Sienna we traded in. The styling is cool (for a minivan).
Thanks for your help. Prior to reading your post, I would have been happy paying $100 over invoice. This is the kind of information that makes this forum so valuable.
Good luck w/ your new purchase! Happy driving!
Maybe as a custom order they are willing to deal. Sounds good
Now I have to wait 3 to 6 weeks for delievery and I was wandering if anybody else ordered theirs how long it took for delievery.
I placed an order with a dealership for this configuration:
Rogue Leather(we wanted black carpet)
This configuration was impossible to find since no one had Rogue leather and if they did it had the Nav and DVD systems which we did not want or need. So we ordered through this dealership In April or should I say tried to. They advised that Nissan would not allow them to order any SE's for the entire month so we would have to wait until May to place the order. So we said OK we will wait since the reason we needed the van like most people we were going to have our third child in June. The dealership advised that the vehicle should be here end of June or at the latest middle of July.
Here is the email I received from them today:
"My Nissan Manger was finally contacted by Nissan with
your VIN number: 5N1BV28U94N367089. It is scheduled to arrive on 8/13. I
know that is late and we are very sorry for the inconvenience. Nissan was
behind in there production due to numbers and the 4th of July Holiday. The
vehicle may arrive early but that is the date Nissan is giving us right now.
I will definitely keep you posted".
Am I out of line to be very very upset. I think we have been more than patient with them even allowing them to wait another month to order the vehicle since they were not allowed any new SE orders.
What does the board think? Do you think I am entitled to anything for all this inconvience? This is my first brand new vehicle purchase and it goes without saying my first one ever ordered from the factory. I want to make sure I am not over reacting and since I have no history with this type of situation I would like to hear back from the board.
It is getting to the point where 05's are going to be out before I get this vehicle.
Goos luck with your Quest. You'll enjoy it.
Did you purchase the 2004 model?
I would say they worked real well - they have also been right behind me in getting all my problems fixed, including arranging a loaner van for all the time we were in shop. I did not have the extended warranty
Thoughts? Haven't signed on the dotted line yet, but the dealer gave us this price out the door when others were saying $30,100 + tax/title/tags. His is inital price was $750 below invoice.
This is Herb Gordon Nissan in Maryland.
I'm assuming that your sales tax is 5% or around $1,450, making my number around $30,626 with a $100 doc fee. ~$31,100 with just a $500 rebate (that figure must be related to your low financing rate).
So I'd say you are doing a little better than the TMV price, but there's probably a bit more room to wiggle if you want to be a grinder.
Usual disclaimers about my math - you can do it yourself here.
So if it helps you sleep better, go for it - my other bias is that the Nissan extended warranty is probably going to always be honored, while a third party one may not be if the company or their underwriter goes broke. Warranty Gold did this a year or so ago and filed bankruptcy, leaving a lot of people holding worthless pieces of paper that they paid lots of money for.
Read the fine print on the one you choose because the companies are expert on wiggling out of payment for one reason or another.
There is also some debate about the best time to buy - you may get a better price by tying the purchase to the van purchase. Or you may do better waiting and getting it online. You'll have to check with Nissan to see how long you have to purchase one - it may be one year or as long as three years.
We have been dabbling getting a new car for about a month and have just understood that we really need a minivan. Looking at Quest and the Honda Odessesy, but the 05 Od'y isn't due yet in Chicago area until October and then I suppose they'll be selling for $$. Won't the 05 Quest be a better deal?
Any help will be appreciated!
We had standout due to 129 miles then we were tired for two months of shopping car and we went for it.
There was lot of push to buy protection and extended warranty but we did not went for it.
Van was built on 06/04 and does have some defects which will need to be repaired by the dealer. However, we are very pleased with the van overall.
My vin is not part of the recall, but I am affected by the Customer Satisfaction Initiative Nissan put out on the Quest. Only one item, the FM tuner.
smoke SE with:
VIN of 33,500 (last 5 digits - concerned about quality of early production models!)
AND 2,000 dealer miles.
Dealer has offered $32,987, but I am not yet convinced.
SE (silver w/beige interior)
Dual DVD (2 screens)
Dont have the running boards but I imagine it would not increase the price that much. As it is the price is $313 under invoice. I would wonder why your price is thousands below. Sounds fishy to me.
I forgot to mention that this doesn't include applicable tax and a repair of a slight "ding" (more like a scratch) on the front bumper.
I just paid 24,060.30, out the door, on a 2004 Quest S. I forgo the $1000 rebate in lieu of 2% financing for 5 years. Did I get a good deal?
Would appreciate feed backs from other Quest buyers.
I've been trying to get the dealer down further because I know the 05s are not too far off. Should I jump on this deal or hold out? I'd appreciate feedback.
Can you please tell me about your experience / the sales rep you dealt with / price you paid?
I am also considering buying Quest SL from Herb Gorden Nissan.
