While most of the attention Nissan has been getting recently revolves around the GT-R sportscar, its bread-and-butter models, like the Sentra S and the new Murano, have gotten slight bumps in price. The compact sedan sees an increase from $16,930, which included a $660 destination charge to $17,030, including a higher $695 destination charge. The Murano was just redesigned and launched with a mildly lowered price for this model year. Not so much anymore, as it now jumps to $29,250, including a slightly raised $780 destination charge.

In addition to these incremental sticker price adjustments, Nissan has announced a mild increase to the destination charges for all of its 2008 and 2009 model-year vehicles carrying Nissan or Infiniti badges. Though Nissan has yet to comment on the reason for the price hikes, we'd imagine that the weak U.S. dollar and high fuel prices undoubtedly play a part in both the base price bump and the associated destination charge increases.

      They should put the GT-R engine, transmission and suspension (ok, a bit softer) in the Murano, would make for a lot of very surprised faces!

      destination charges are a rip-off. unless you special order the vehicle, then the dealer should be paying for the shipping, or it shoudl be just part of the base price and not called 'destination charge' anymore. why should i pay for the shipping to the lot? when you go to the grocery store do they say the apple is $1 but then the shipping to get it to the store will be an additional $0.25? no it's inherently part of the cost of the item. Destination charges are just a way to keep the base cost down.
