Ok, so the discount isn't huge, but it IS a discount, not an attempt to gouge because it is a new model.

I just priced the Murano SE 2WD at Carsdirect.com (loaded w/Nav) and came up with these prices in an Atlanta Zip Code:

CarsDirect Price: $36,235
MSRP Price: $36,285
Invoice Price : $33,004

This bodes well for early buyer discounts. Gouging dealers be-gone! :D

I also used Cars.com to price out an SE 2wd with the Popular Package. It came out to $33,117. Looking forward to getting behind the wheel soon!

Do yourself a favor and try Edmunds.com.
Price everything out, all the options you want, and then check the MSRP, the invoice price(which is the target price for your negotiations) as well as the heading that says what others in your area are paying(this will be higher than invoice).

I simply picked my options and printed out the listing with the 3 headings: MSRP, INVOICE, and What others are paying. I blanked out the third column completely and was left with MSRP and INVOICE.

When I went to make my deal, the sales manager had the exact figure as I did for invoice, that's what I settled on. May have even gotten it lower.

Do the research and homework before you deal!

Wow a moldy oldie post! Keep in mind the MSRP above reflects November 2002 pricing.

Today, you should be able to start at invoice and deal down as dealerships compete for your business. Thats what I did, and ended paying $1200 under invoice for the exact model I wanted (In June 2003, an 03 SE AWD with popular package and vdc). I was able to get this price by calling different dealers, telling them the best price I could get at a competitor and asking if they would match or beat it. One afternoon of phone calls, a price well under invoice. I think I made good use of my time and got a great deal.

I love Edmunds.com. It is a such a useful site (except for their unfavorable review of the murano!).

You can get the Mo below invoice now. It's not in short supply. A lot of people assume the Mo is overpriced when they look at the sticker price.

Invoice Boasting

There's a whole other thread about Invoice Pricing

http://www.nissanmurano.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1721

elliotgb,

This is what you said from that other thread.....

"I think I may have gotten stiffed a bit by the dealership on the trade value, "

So did you really pay invoice? Or is it just that the dealers shuffled the numbers around ?

For those who paid below invoice, I challenge you to scan the Buyer's invoice, remove all personal information, and post it.

I'll bet there's trade-in's, extra purchases, fees, etc.
