  • You should go to truecar.com. You can find out the lowest selling cost of the car near you. I got a 2.5SL for $25 OTD
  • $1500 is a lot of money. Do you think you will save that much in financing with them vs. what you can get at other places? If you have good credit history, Penfed offers 1.99% and PSECU has 1.49% APR. How much are they offering through Nissan NMAC?

    Well at this point I am approved by Capital One at 4.17% (which is pretty high). I am not a member of any credit union and do not qualify for any (don't work for the right companies, make more in salary than the amounts required, etc). As such, my savings would be over $1,500. I will, however, look to see what standard financing they also provide beyond the 0% and perhaps their standard APR is also low enough to make getting the $1,500 a good idea.

    As a price though, is this good? It is about $770 less than the lowest I got at Truecar. I arrived at this price after combining truecar.com with the fax attack method and got dealers to bid against each other via phone. It seems that my final low price is at $20,400 + taxes and DMV fees (total of about $22,517 out the door).

    Is that good for an Altima 2.5S with the 20th Anniversary package in NY?
  • Well I think you can certainly get a better deal.

    I got 2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 S with anniv edition in San Antonio, Texas out of door for $20500.

    It also has Carpeted floor mats + Aluminum kick plates + Splash Guards + 0% APR + 0 down payment + $500 Grad discount.

    Here is the break down
    $19000 + 1448(TT&L)

    If you don't add 500 Grad discount, it should come to $21000 out of door.

    Hope this helps.

    I get that, but that's in San Antonio, TX. How about in NY or NJ?

    Hi, looking for a quick price confirmation. I am getting the altima s with no additional packages for 17K cash price + TTL. If I take the 0% financing then I will have to pay an additional 1.5K. Please let me know if this sounds reasonable.
  • According to leaseguide.com this is an excellent deal, but you tell me...
    2012 Altima coupe 2.5 automatic, convenience, premium & leather packages.
    MSRP 30,555
    Selling Price $27,280
    Bank fee $595
    Cap cost reduction $500
    Adj cap cost $29,244
    Money Factor .00073
    Residual $16,194
    Due at signing $500
    Payment (pre-tax) $367.79
    39 month/15k year lease
  • hey everyone...new poster here looking to buy a new car. Right now my top 3 are between the Altima, Subaru Legacy or Kia Optima. Im leaning towards the Altima though just based on price alone. I was wondering if ppl could tell me if they were happy with their Altimas? Everything I have read online seems that ppl love them, you guys seem like a pretty informed group so I was wondering if ppl could help me out.

    Also I found this deal being advertised on a website, and it seems like a CRAZY deal:

    MSRP$21,855.00
    Internet Price$16,058.00
    You Save:$5,797.00
    ePrice: Click Here
    Drivetrain: 4 door Variable 2.5L 4 cyl.
    Mileage: 0
    Exterior Color: Super Black
    Interior Color:
    Vin: 1N4AL2AP0CN492674

    http://www.herbgordonnissan.net/new-cars/2012-nissan-altima-4dr-sdn-i4-cvt-2-5-v- 888720/

    Seems to be a pretty awesome deal and Im thinking I should jump on it....what is the consensus here? Thanks for the help everyone!
  • Price looks amazing, but I am concerned about this line: "Your only additional costs are sales tax, processing fee, destination charge, and MVA tag and title fees for the state in which the vehicle will be registered". Can you check what the processing fee is for, and how much. The other fees (tax, destination, title/tag) are fine - you cannot generally escape that. Here in CA, we are charged Documentation fee upto $50 - if the processing fee seems reasonable, you may be fine. Inquire what your final "out of door" price will be.

    Also, realize that this is an absolute base model with no stereo/radio.

    I own an Altima 2.5S (one trim higher than this - includes radio and mp3), and so far I have been loving it. When I did my research, most people dis-liked the CVT. I suggest you see if there is a rental company close by who has Altima - rent it for a day or so, drive around town, and see if you like it. I did, and I bought the Altima.

  • This is the info I got from the dealer. What do u think?

    $ 21,855.00 MSRP
    $ 16,058.00 Special Internet Purchase Price*
    + $780.00 Nissan Destination Fee
    + $ 199.00 Dealer Processing Fee

    Other Nissan dealers don't always include the Destination fee in their quotes. We like to keep our
    quotes completely transparent with no hidden fees. Dealer processing fee is regulated in Maryland at
    no more than $200.00 but in Virginia, it is not regulated and dealers can charge as much as $500.00.
  • Deal looks good.. If you dont mind could you please let me know the dealer..
    I am trying to buy one and lowest quote i got is around 20500.
  • Dealer is Herb Gordon in Silver Spring MD. It is a 2.5 with minimal options, but I figure I can buy a nice sound system at Best Buy, the rest of the necessities on the car are there for me (power windows, Power Locks, AC). It does not have the options of a 2.5S, but to be honest alot of those option are not worth it to me
  • The reason I picked the 2.5S Altima over the Accord, Mazda6, and Camry was the better legroom (I'm 6'3"), wonderful CVT transmission (I've always owned manual tranny's because I hate the jerking that an auto does), and its better performance. During the test drive I took the freeway onramp, which had a good climb to it, and when I barely hit the gas I was pressed back into my seat.

    In fact I liked the Altima MORE after owning it 3 years, never had that happen with any other car, SUV or truck I've owned. So when my lease ended I started the search process all over again, and still went with the Altima this time with the 20th Anniversary package.

    Wonderful car, will probably get another in three years.

    Hey everyone, so here are my 3 offers for carshopping over the weekend...let me know what you guys think. I really negotiated hard, and thus far these are the best offers I have gotten, for 3 different models.

    2.5 BASE (no radio, minimal options) - $18,800 OTD (including all fees + 6% tax) using Nissan Finance (3.99 I think ?) with $0 down

    2.5 S - $21000 OTD (including all fees + 6% tax) using 0% Finance with $0 down

    2.5S 20th Anny Package - $23,000 OTD(including all fees + 6% tax) using 0% Finance with $1,000 down

    Like I said, I negotiated hard, but cant tell if these are good deals based on what everyone else has paid. What do all of you guys think? Thanks for the input!!!
  • between 2.5S and 2.5 20th edt shouldnt it be only 900 dollar difference? the nissan website show 1500 option reduced to 900 dollars. maybe im wrong....
  • newer cars use newer(untested) tech usually getting better mpg and hp to boot, so if I find a reck with low mileage it seems like it would be more cost efffective in stead of/ engine, trans, and axle rebuild.
  • Cfundo -

    Did you actually get the car for this price? I've been making this same exact offer at several dealerships with no luck. If you bought the car, can you please let me know what dealer in NY you bought it from? Thanks!

  • What did you show for your grad discount?
  • What did you show for your grad discount?
  • I just showed them my degree. Actually Nissan do a degree verification before giving you the discount.

    Hope this helps
  • Are you guessing or you know for fact?
  • Hey everyone, this is a GREAT forum. As all of you I am trying to get the best deal for my wife and currently have 3 dealers throwing everything at me.

    The first dealer we went to this past Saturday was local and we were there about 4 hours trying to hammer out a deal....it was a bust so we left. I then went on true car and from there it has been a crazy day with three dealers trying to earn my business.

    I would like to see what everyone thinks, because I kinda feel one of the deals is too good to be true and it's also the farthest away but at the same time a way bigger dealer ship in a heavy metro area.

    The car with options is:
    2012 Nissan Altima 2.5s
    convience package
    conveience plus package
    dark slate with frost interior

    Local deal is

    Retail : 25,975.00
    Savings: 3,350.14
    Selling Price : 22,624.86
    Rebate: 750.00
    Sub total: 21,874.86
    Fees: 725.50
    Sales Tax: 1,399.64
    Net Sales: 24,000

    we are putting down $4000, and financing $20,000 @ 0% interest.
    -We originally spent 4 hours in this dealership and they were not willing to even come this close until I contact 2 other dealers who were willing to negotiate.

    The two other dealers have been hitting me hard all day, but both originally gave us the current price you see before the local dealer finally called and said that they would do it.

    I already informed them that 2 other dealers have given me what I wanted without burning 4 hours of my time, and they said they would split the cost of the fog lights to make the deal better and free oil changes and tire rotations for as long as we own the car.

    The furthest dealer came back and just offered up

    Net sales price: $23,300
    minus the $4000 down to $19,300 @ 0 %, plus moon roof deflector and foglights free of charge, and they will fill up the tank of whatever we drive to go get their car.

    is this price too good to be true? because both the other dealers are telling me that it's impossible they are selling that far below invoice and that I'm going to get hit with all sorts of crazy fees once we make the drive.

    Hi,

    I bought this week 2012 Altima Base model (Auto) with floor mats/SplashGuard, Paint/sealant fabric guard package with 2yrs free maintenance with Nitro fill tires for 16000 (out the door) (Sales tax not included). Is this a good price?

    Thanks

    I have had my 2010 Altima for about 20 months and loved every minute of it. It is a joy to drive and extremely comfortable. My only two minor complaints are: 22.3 mpg for city driving and high pitched sound during highway driving, especially during acceleration. With these two minor complaints, I am enthusiastic and happy about my Altima, so far.
