    Hi goldieatx,

    I need some help in analyzing my deal and would really appreciate if you could look into the details of my deal as shown below:

    Would you be able to tell me how much worth was your trade-in. You have mentioned that you paid a total of $3250 dows (is this including or excluding the trade-in value.)

    My car cost me $33553 (Cash price including TTL) + $431.87 Gap insurance + $450 dealer maintainance + $312.01 (additional charges such as documentary fees, dealer inventory tax etc...) = $34746.88

    I have paid $1000.28 as down payment and the dealership only gave me a $500 recent college graduate discount.
  • i am looking to buy 2010 altima 2.5S need advice, around 10-20K miles on it....clean good condition...Im in NJ, what kind of price I would be paying for such a car? how do you guys come to a price to negotiate? For eg: if the car is listed for 19,000, where would u start bargaining? and where would u stop? what sites are used to figure out ur pricing?

    thanks!
  • It seems that 19K is the asking price for most 2010 2.5S. I guess you probably can get the car for about 17k. One thing is you need to look at the carfax and make sure that the car is listed as "Personal own". You don't want to buy a previous rental car or corporate lease car.

    Actually, I might want to get rid of my 2010 2.5S w/ 14.5K miles later next month. If you're interested, you can post your email here.
  • Just bought a 2012 2.5S Super Black Special edition Altima with 5 piece floor mats, aluminum kick plates, and splash guards. Sticker- 24,570. Used VPP program + $1000 Customer cash + $500 Holiday cash + $500 Financing cash to use Nissan financing. The VPP subtracts these incentives from the Invoice price of 23,046. They were ready to sell me this car for 21,046. I told them I would come back tomorrow in the daylight to make sure we liked the color. They tried to throw in the splash guards for free but I still left to think about it. The next morning I contacted another local dealer and they said they could sell the same car (they had 2 in stock) for 20,641. I called the original dealer and they beat that price. It went back and forth for a couple hours. If I didn't call them, they would call me. One told me if they are at that number they are loosing money you better take it. Then he called back anyway and said he would beat it. Finally both said they couldn't do any better so I gave them some time. I didn't get a call back so I went to the best one.

    From 24,570 MSRP
    23,046 Invoice

    Got it for 19,261 plus tax and tags. Used their financing at 2.74% for now.

    That is $5309 under Sticker.

    $3785 under Invoice.

    It's a 2 years old car why it's only clean and not excellent. A door ding or a scratch bumper should be still in excellent condition.

    I say about 17k for private party and 17.5-18 for dealer if it's excellent.
  • I was offered the following from M'Lady in Crystal Lake IL

    Make: 2012 Nissan
    Model: Altima 2.5 S
    Options: Splash Guards, Premium Audio Package, Conveneince Package, Convenience Plus Package, SL Package, Alloy Kick PLate, Floor Mats, Trunk Sub Floor Orgainzer
    MSRP: $28,990.00

    Internet Price: $22,127.00

    Includes Current Manufacturer Incentives (limited offer)
  • It seems like a real nice deal 1dipstick. If I were in your place, I would buy the car immediately.
  • I just forwarded this offer to a competing dealer and they came back and said that they would match that price. So it seems like no b/s.
    A 2012 Altima 2.5SL can be had for $6800 under MSRP!
    I think that in '13 the updated model is expected to come out. :confuse:

    6.8k off MSRP is crazy. It's not normal...make sure it's not a demo. I think 5k off for a loaded Altima is normal. I wouldn't be too happy until I get the car.
  • No way is this 6.8k off MSRP deal real.
  • I don't think it's possible...may be next May when they try to clear the room for the all new 2013.
  • Anybody bought a 2011 2.5S CVT Coupe? There's like 10 around my area and none of them will go below 20,000. Do you think they'll eventually cave?

    I am looking at 2011 Altima 2.5S with
    - SL Package
    - Convenience Package
    - Convenience Plus Package
    - Floor mats
    - Splash guards
    - Bluetooth
    - Aluminum kick plates

    I am being offered $24,486 (about $1300 below invoice)
    Minus $1,500 in current incentives
    For a total of $22,986

    Is this a good deal? How much more can I expect to knock down?
  • I think that's really good. 28k MSRP? That's about 5K off.
  • The prices vary based on availability and number of dealers in the area too.

    I bought a 2011 Nissan Altima in San Francisco bay area 2 months back and based on the number of dealers here and my buying experience, I think this is a good deal but not a great deal.

    I got the car with Convenience package + Floor mats +splash guards + Al kick plates for $21072 - $1250 (Nissan rebate) - $500 (New college grad) = $19322

    Equivalently, if the availability in your area is similar to mine, I feel you should be able to negotiate another $500.
  • Hi 1dipstick, I am interested in the same car (in Chicagoland area) and will appreciate knowing if you did end up closing the deal and the final price paid. Thanks!

    Started looking at an Altima the other day and I found some great deals on a 2011 3.5SR V6. MSRP on the car is $26,700 and I wanted to negotiate down the price. Got them down to $20,087.

    Got them down to an out the door price of $22,670 that's including tax, tags and they are paying for the fees and freight.

    Good Deal? Any Thoughts?

    In northern california all of Nissan dealers have offered big discounts for awhile and advertised prices for the Altima 2.5S start from under $18k. Meanwhile the Camry LE is $23k upwards.. it's a better car but not $5k better.... how is Nissan able to offer such value?
  • lucasqlucasq Posts: 20
    That is an amazing price!
  • Hello, I'm in the market for a used Altima 2.5 S. I located on at a local dealer (Miami FL Area) and their internet price for a 2008 Altima with leather seats, sun roof, and convenience package was $16,995. Their first offer was $17995 and I got them down to $14995. They would not go any lower than that. I was looking for a $15000 out the door price but they're out the door price was $17000. This included a $600 dealer fee.(they actually let me leave) Should I try to negotiate down further or should I buy it at this price. Oh the car as 47k miles on it. the TMV is around $13500. The vehice is in excellent condition (or at least it looks that way).

    That is an incredibly good deal and I wonder what consumer rebates did you apply to the deal and how much incentives did dealer have to reduce it such low? Invoice on that car is about 26,729 w/ dest. chgs. included so they discounted by 4,602 off invoice? Am I missing anything here?

    I was offered 24,662 plus TTL (1,500 buyer rebates) by Dallas/Ft Worth area dealer. It's a 2012 Altima 2.5 SL with Conv.pkg, Conv. plus, Prem. Audio pkg. & SL leather pkg. , mats, trunk org. & tinting etc.

    Any DFW area buyers getting great deals please share with us. Based on reading other posts 23k-23.5k is a very doable deal for above spec. car.
  • alookmanalookman Posts: 141
    Yes that is an amazingly good deal. I would jump at it.

    Will you share the name and location of the dealership? I am getting offer for same spec car for over 24.6k + TTL with 1500 rebates in Dallas area. Doc fees are 190!
