Regal Nissan has put up their first expected delivery:

Pricing is as expected, no committment from the dealership if they will try to extract a premium price or go with MSRP. I'd love to wait it out to see what the market makes the price, but it is such a good looking vehicle it is a gamble if it will go down or go up in the immediate short term post launch.

As late as last Friday, I was told by Regal Nissan that price would be MSRP and that none of the nine they expected were currently spoken for. Based on the frequency at which they contacted me after my initial inquiry they are not getting a tremendous amount of initial response. Not suprising considering the lack of Internet buzz about the Murano, coupled with lack of traditional advertising. Who really knows about it unless they saw it at an auto show. Frankly, I think that bodes well for sub-MSRP pricing or other incentives in the near-term.

On a related Atlanta-area note, http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1873080083

I really shouldn't fault the dealer, but rather the people that are willing to pay more than MSRP...especially in light of the fact that two Atlanta area dealers already told me they would sell at MSRP! As PT Barnum said...

On the bright side, there are a few real nice pics.

Scam or Trouble?

With two days still to go in the ebay sale, the bid price is $5100 ABOVE MSRP ????

Either there's some insider dealing going on, to raise the price artificially, or we potential buyers are in big trouble. Based on this auction dealers everywhere are going to be telling their customers about the demand, and yikes...

It smells fishy to me.

I was thinking the same thing. Considering that I can count less than 50 people discussing the Murano online between here and FA (half of which are Nissan salespeople), few of which are in the Atlanta area, this does seem fishy. Do experienced eBay users run their bids up so quickly with this much time left?

BTW, I drove up to this dealership to take a look at the Murano this afternoon. They don't even have one at the dealership and the salesperson told me they have never had one. (I know that this auction is not for this vehicle, rather the chance to buy one) Based on the nav system screen showing the dealership location AND a local radio station tuned in, I would say that: 1) I was lied to or 2) The saleman was clueless. Oh well, at least I got to drive my Wife's Altima. :)

There truly is a sucker born every minute if someone is willing to pay $5600 over MSRP ($498 documentation fee) when two different dealerships have already quoted me MSRP in Atlanta.
