2013 and earlier Nissan Altima Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • Just signed the contract with a dealer for a 2012 Altima 2.5 base with free Floor and Trunk Mats, free service plan (oil and tire rotation), free navigation. About $16300 OTD including everyting. Capital region NY.
  • Does a 2.5 base come with Navigation?

    No. Base 2.5 is really base. No music/mp3, no navigation, no iltelligentkey. It does come with 4 speakers and its wired so you can easily install an aftermarket music/mp3 player and save $$. The 2.5S comes with music/mp3, 6 speakers, and intelligentkey.

    I like this car more and more. 27.9 to 28.0 mpg around the city. I like the dual exhaust tips and the sporty look of the Vision Wheel alloys I purchased along with the all weather mats. This is the second time I've bought all weather mats (2008 Pathfinder) and I just leave them in year round.
    For the money, this is the best sedan I've seen at the best price. Nissan has it figured out. They give you more for less.
    Love the Dark Slate with Frost interior.
  • No. The navigation device should be a separate one from the dealer.

    Just leased a 2012 Altima Sedan, 2.5S w/ SL, Tech, Conv, Conv+, Premium Audio, Spoiler, Splash Guards, Fog Lights, Floor/Trunk Mats, MSRP = 31,140. Black w/ blond leather. Sales price, $28,096 (quoted as $800 below invoice, and based upon truecar that appears true, edmunds price calculator seems off a bit (yielded $28,847, but the MRSP was off by $160 on $825 lease rebate, $500 loyalty rebate, $500 MLK weekend rebate all applied to take the total sales price to $26,271. Up-front costs are a total of $823.21, including doc ($397.90), tags ($73), first payment (283.43), and $68.88 in taxes. Payments are $275.17 plus $8.26 3% NC tax for a total of 283.43. 39 month lease, 12,000 miles per year. $595 acquisition fee rolled into the lease. I was going to lease for 36 months, but the dealer pointed out that going to 39 months saved about $14 a month, and that Nissan was offering early outs on their leases (they did offer that to me in September, for my 2009 Altima that I turned in). So I went for 39 months.

    Dealer was Michael Jordan Nissan in Durham, NC. I had 3 other dealers willing to take $800 to $1000 off the invoice for a new Altima, plus the $1825 off for rebates, but this dealership had the car that most closely met our option/color needs (Black was my wife's second choice on color, she really wanted Tuscan Sun, but there was not one in the state of NC w/ the Technology Package). I tried to get the dealer to $1000 off invoice, but he was firm at $800 off. I did all the negotiations by email/phone. Got to the dealership, everything was as promised and I was in/out in 75 minutes, which included the paperwork for my new car, the paperwork for my 2009 Altima lease turn-in, changing/verifying my insurance coverage, and transferring all my maps/tools/junk from the old car to the new one. No attempt to up-sell me on unwanted paint sealant, nitrogen in tires, maintenance agreements, etc. I rate this dealer A+.

    In addition, NMAC has committed to waive the $395 disposition fee on my 2009 Altima lease since I leased a new Altima through NMAC. I count that as another incentive, bringing the total in incentives to $2220. Love the new car!
  • Just got a 2.5SL, Silver, black leather, Premium Audio, Convenience pkgs, ground lighting. Invoice $8K, paid $22,848. LOVE the car! Went on through Consumer Reports and printed out certificate...dealership honored price. Was there for 4 hours, but it was a holoiday weekend...very busy.
  • Does anyone know the pricing of the Maintenance Plus? Is it worth it? I'm in the NY Tri-state area.
  • I just bought a new 2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 S with Annv Package on Jan 16 in San Antonio, TX.

    I got the 2.5S with Anniversary package + Carpeted floor mats + Aluminum kick plates + Splash Guards + 0% APR + 0 down payment + Grad discount.

    The car was listed at some $24770 or so.

    I got it out of door for USD 20500. I could have got it for USD 19000 (OTD) but have to lose USD 1500 discount as I wanted the 0% apr.

    I love the car and hope I got a good deal. What do you guys say?

    Sounds like you got a good deal, I found the bottom line price for that model at $21,083.00 with just the $1500.00 rebate. Can you break down the price as I too am from San Antonio. Also what dealerdhip did you purchase from?
  • Is this $22,848 OTD Price?
  • No before tax, title, tags...
  • Price of the car(After all the discounts from dealership & Nissan):- 20020
    Grad Discount : - 500
    MLK weekend Discount:- 500(I think they are still running it)
    TTL - > 1480.
    with 0% Apr + 0 downpayment.

    Actually I did some comparision shopping. I first got the price from Ancira Nissan, they were offering me the same car to me at 21,180 OTD. Then I asked Ingram Park Nissan if they could beat the price. They said yes & sold it to me at $20500 OTD.
    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the information. I checked the Gunn website and see they have one listed at $18,108 so I plan on checking with them to see if there's a catch on that price. How do you like the car thus far?

    Depends on where you are and what your tax rate is.

    I'm shopping for basically the same Altima SL (MSRP 28k +/-) and here in Pittsburgh the best price I've gotten is $25.6k before incentives and tax, which makes your deal look good.

    A couple hours down the road in MD I can get it for $23.4k before incentives and tax, which makes your deal look not so good.

    Shop around.
  • Thx

    I bought that car cuz I bet the price I got is the best.
    The dealer I bought a car from is in IL and tax rate is 6.25%.
    Before incentives and tax, the car price I got is $24,947.
    I bet you better drive 2hrs down and get that babe and hope this could help you :)

    I am about to buy a Nissan Altima 2.5S with the 20th Anniversary package for $20,500 (plus NY taxes and NY DMV fees = $22,627). I will also get the 0% financing (could get it for $1,500 less if I go with a different financing option and get the $1,500 cash back).

    What do you think?
