USAA price is only guaranteed for vehicles that are actually on the participating dealers lot. So it can be difficult getting a dealer to honor that price on an order.

The Texas deal isn't a deal for everyone(although def worth considering.) Driving halfway across the country can negate your savings and if you have a trade in, that's another area you can potentially lose. (ie your local dealer will give you 23k on a trade and the Texas dealer will only give you 20k)

That and the gas to drive there and back.

I called to inquire about the Texas deal and I was told I had to be a member of Tread Lightly to get the full 5.5% Just another thing to consider regarding the TX deal.

I wonder why they require tread lightly membership? Extra cash they get from the sale I guess? Since tread lightly is a 1% below invoice deal, not really sure why they care.

They use that to pay part of the discount. Otherwise the full 5.5% comes right out of their pocket.

Treadlightly membership

It's only $100 and it would be done at the signing of the docs. Not a bad deal to save a goodly percentage. Price I was quoted by the Texas deal folks saves me just under $3000 OTD from the deal offered by my local dealer!

Well worth it.....

The cost of fuel in the diesel was less than $175 to drive from Texas to Minnesota.

May I ask how they did the release of your 13 lease payments? I leased mine 36mo and plan to lease again from the same dealer at lease end.

After reading all of these posts, I feel like I didn't get that great of a deal. I paid invoice for my 2014 Limited ($37,500), but they did give me $28,500 for my 2011 Murano. Now days I think you can actually get a better deal if you finance through the dealer, but I don't like car payments.

^^^^^This^^^^^

Right with you on not wanting a car payment. Plenty of deals on leases and low interest rate loans, but cash folks really get the least amount of breaks. We just paid cash for our 2014 JGC in November and there were no factory incentives for us whatsoever.

I don't like car payments either. I doubt anyone does, but for most (me included) it's now somewhat of a necessity until I hit the lottery, become a lobbyist, or something like that.
If you get a better deal or more breaks if you finance than a cash deal if cash is the only thing you'll do, then finance it and pay it off the next week or so. There's no penalties to do that, or it never was for me anyways back when I bought much cheaper vehicles. With rates near zero or 1-2%, you may be better off financing and keeping your cash where it's getting a good rate of return. Depends on the situation, and no two are alike.

I actually did just that when we bought my wife's Juke, we traded a Beetle and they talked us into financing and then I paid it off in a couple of months. Dealerships sometimes make a little off the financing, but this time I just didn't want to mess with it. I bought the cheapest Limited they had and paid just $9,000 plus tax after trade.
