Went to Puyallup Nissan (South of Seattle) today, even though I knew they didn't have what I wanted (1.8S, manual, white). There isn't one like that in the whole State, but there was one in Oregon. A nice (and I mean that) salesman was very helpful, and let me look one over without the "What would it take to get you into one of these today?" speels. This was the first time I'd seen a Cube in person, it wasn't as small as I expected, the windshield wasn't as big as I expected, the rear luggage room was bigger than I expected. Doing some of the mods I plan on isn't going to be easy,because the muffler and spare tire are in the way.

I was surprised that there wasn't any "ADM" or "ADP" applied, only the MSRP + delivery + installed options.
We went inside, they offered to make me a deal on any Cube they had in stock, but I wasn't interested. They then checked regional inventory, and the one in Oregon didn't show up, so apparently it had been sold. They then checked Cubes planned for delivery in the region in the next few months, and no 1.8S white manuals were planned for delivery, which surprised me. They then offered to custom order one for me, which they said they normally don't do. I told them we could do a deal, but not if I had to pay retail, but said that I'd wanted fog lights and I knew that they had higher markup on dealer installed options like that. I was going to try to get them to come in with a total price of about $200 below sticker price. They came back with an offer to through in the fog lights and installation for free (about $400 below sticker!). They did caution that they've had problems in the past with the factory installing mud flaps and floor mats even though they weren't ordered, and if that happened, I'd be charged for them. I agreed, as long as they agreed that he most additional I'd pay would be $200.

So, the bottom line is: 14,690 + 720 for delivery = $15,410 for a white 1.8S with a manual and dealer installed fog lights! If it comes with mud flaps and floor mats, It'll be $15,610. I think I got a good deal. Could I have beaten them down another $100? Possibly. Another $200? Not likely. But I actually consider sales to be a noble profession, and wasn't trying to get an absolute killer deal, just a fair deal. So while Carsdirect says the best price in my area is about $500 over sticker, I got it for $400 under sticker. I think that is fair! My custom ordered Cube should be in my diveway in 45 to 60 days.

The dealer was Puyallup Nissan, and the salesman was Dan Renard (253-848-4507, [email protected]), both highly recommended.

WOW! I was told it would take 90 days if I wanted to build my own. I ended up compromising on the color to get one sooner, but they took about $1000 off the sticker price for me.
