As I see it medical work is a noble profession, but damn it just pays the bills if your a CNA. So I went back to work selling cars, I sold 4 in 5 days, a hell of a lot easier than selling Cadallics and Chevrolets, Nissan is a easy car or truck to sell and I see a very good future in it.

I am tired and bored, but not sleepy so I thought I would log on and see what I could get in to.

Yes it was very difficult, I cant beleive how different it is selling Nissan, its really strange, but I would prefer a Nissan or Toyota over any other car or truck. My favorite on the lot is the Nissan Titan V8 4 door, those are awesome trucks, but with the gas prices its not real popular right now with people. I did sell a '07 Frontier day before yesterday though.

I find that to be true, when I first started selling that is the exact words my brother law said to me, but I couldn't beleive it until I found out for myself, and it is very true.

2009 GTR...if it meets expectation it'll be 911 turbo performance for < 70K. I'd favor it over a vette for reliability and interior quality.

To be honest I dont know about the 2009 GTR, but we have a Z350 on our lot and they are really sporty cars, we have had some people wanting one in a convertible.

I think the keyless entry and keyless start are really cool, until I started working at the dealership last week I had never seen that before. The Monteros are wonderful, hell I like them all I guess except for the Versa I don't care for them although, they do get 38 miles a galllon, so thats something to consider for transportation if you travel a lot.

They are not too proud like Honda/Toyota and will dicker on price.

How much money do sales people make just selling one car. I always figured they made like 100-200 for selling just one vehicle.

25% of the gross profit, the only way you would make 100 bucks is if you ended up dropping the price so low the dealership didn't make a profit, its called a mini deal, that doesn't happen often.

So for example if the gross on a car you sold was 2k you would get 500?

Nissan has been nothing but good to me. I have a Nissan 97 2WD Truck 95k miles never had a major problem. You do all the maintenance it needs and it'll run practically forever.
I know someone that runs a delivery service. She has 3 of these running around all over, one over 300k miles. She wants to buy mine for her business. No Way! this is my baby! Oh yeah 26 mpg on the highway!

Nissan Sales Dive 14% In April
By Ryan Thomas

The Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.’s April sales dived 14.0 percent on a daily sales rate basis to 61,179 units compared with last year's 77,102 units sold. The company’s sales decline points to fewer selling days in April 2007 as compared to 2006.

The Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) reported sales of 71,124 units in April and that is an 11.1 percent cut from the previous year. The NNA sales decreased 14.0 percent over last year. The Infiniti Division posted a sales gain of 12.0 percent with 9,945 units sold, as compared with last April’s 9,618 units. The all-new G Sedan contributed sales of 4,491 units, an increase of 71.9 percent over last April.

This April, Nissan bumpers failed to protect the company from sales crash. For the month of April, Nissan and Infiniti sales totaled 71,124 and that figure is an 11.1 percent decrease over last year’s April sales of 86,720 units. In North America, the NNA operations include automotive styling, engineering, consumer and corporate financing, sales and marketing, distribution and manufacturing.

In the United States, Nissan auto sales dropped by 18 percent on unadjusted basis. North American Sales Chief Brad Bradshaw said Tuesday that the U.S. sales for the Nissan and Infiniti brands equaled 71,124 vehicles and that is down by 18 percent compared with the same period in 2006 on a volume basis.

The company's sales fell eleven percent and the figures are adjusted for the fact there were two fewer selling days in April 2007 compared to the prior year. The Japanese automaker said a 20 percent decline at its mainstream Nissan brand or a 14 percent decline on an adjusted basis. The sixth largest automaker worldwide noted that the luxury Infiniti brand registered a four percent increase in volume, or a 12 percent increase when adjusted for selling days. Additionally, Nissan brand sold 61,179 vehicles, while Infiniti delivered 9,945.

In an interview, Bradshaw said it was a "difficult month" for Nissan. He said that the company expected some softness in the first half of the month, due to the Easter holiday and the end of tax season. "But the market didn't come back" in the second half of April as Nissan expected, he added.

Slow truck sales continued to injure the Nissan brand, and now the company is dealing with a unforeseen decline in passenger car sales. "What has been just a truck weakness in the market appears to have crossed over into the car side of the business," Bradshaw noted.

Nissan for the fiscal year 2006, ending March 31, 2007 filed its results with the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The results include net revenues of 10.4686 trillion yen, operating profit of 776.9 billion yen, ordinary profit of 761.1 billion yen, consolidated net income of 460.8 billion yen, and the operating profit margin came to 7.4 percent.

“2006 did not boost our results towards achieving the objectives of Nissan Value-Up,” said the Nissan President and CEO, Carlos Ghosn. “However, we believe that the commitments are within the potential of the company and we remain focused to deliver them completely. Accordingly, we have decided to extend the period for delivering all the Nissan Value-Up commitments by one year.”

Ghosn noted that tangible progress had been made on the four key breakthroughs in Nissan Value-Up. The Infiniti luxury brand continues to expand around the globe with its launch to Russia in 2006 and into China and Ukraine in 2007. The Infiniti brand will also be offered across Western Europe by 2008.

Stressing on the outlook for this fiscal year, Ghosn said that the fiscal 2007 will be a better year for Nissan than the year 2006. However, the rising raw material costs, energy prices and interest rates, fluctuating foreign exchange rates, high level of incentives, and an escalating number of troubled competitors and suppliers, would remain as business risks for this year.

Honda's sales are up year over year, Nissans are down, and have been down..... their sedans suck, and the trucks are getting killed by the Tundra and the Silverado.

It is quite clear through looking at the sales data... as the original point of this thread.... that I would not want to be a Nissan salesman at this point in time.

If I had no brand loyalty and just wanted to make money, I would try to sell Scion or Toyota right now.

Don't hate me forever, but.......I'm a GM fan. Always have been. I think the days of producing garbage are over, you can credit competition from Toyota, Honda, and Nissan. I have driven a Vega before, so I understand your arguement. However, I have an '06 Pontiac G6 and it is wonderful. I've personally owned 4 different GM cars and can see myself being no more satisfied owning a foreign car.

As for GM's business decisions, terrible. In fact, they may make them dead. However that does not change the fact that I am still a fan of their cars.

Have you figured out the name of the Armada yet, BigGranny? I'm surprised they even let you on the lot not knowing the names of their flagship products.

Even if you had only worked there 1 day, you'd think you'd figure out the whole Quest, Pathfinder, Titan, Frontier, Armada, Sentra, Altima, Maxima naming scheme. I don't even work there and I know that much. I don't even own a Nissan and I know.... Jeesh.

I don't want to start a new thread for it, so I'll throw it in here:

Has anyone seen the new Toyota lines. Good grief, they're massive. One of the things I always liked about Toyota was their refusal to bow to the "bigger is better" mantra that Americans demand. The Tacoma dual cab with extended bed would be perfect for me, though. I'll probably get one 6 years down the road, when they're affordable used, and I"m ready to get rid of my Tundra.
