A. A copy of your company photo id, current paycheck, or business card that includes the eligible company employee's name and company name is required to verify proof of employment with the business associate company.
Q. How much will the vehicle I'm interested in cost? Can VPP headquarters provide me with price quotes?
A. When you present your completed VPP claim form, you are entitled to see the invoice of the vehicle you are interested in buying. Final VPP vehicle pricing can be obtained only through a Nissan or Infiniti dealership.
Q. Can the dealer charge me a documentation fee with VPP?
A. Yes, the documentation fees should be the standard charge for all customers, including VPP customers.
Q. What if I want to purchase accessories? Will I get a discount?
A. Prices for accessories are negotiable between you and the dealership. There is no pre-negotiated VPP price for dealer-installed accessories.
Q. How can I find out what incentives are offered on the vehicle I'm interested in?
A. For information on current vehicle incentives, click on the Current Customer Cash Offers link at the top of the page or contact your Nissan or Infiniti dealer.
Q. Can the value of my trade-in be used to further reduce my purchase price?
A. No. The value of a trade-in can be used to pay for your vehicle purchase, but it cannot be used to determine your purchase price. Your trade-in must be handled as a transaction separate from the VPP price calculation.
Q. How do I finance a vehicle if I purchase or lease through the VPP?
A. Financing is handled the same way it is with non-VPP purchases. You can work with the dealership to obtain financing, or you can obtain financing on your own through a bank or credit union. If you choose to finance through the dealership, normal credit standards apply.
