    great deal. that was what the dealer offered me but I thought that was still too much and I could of gone without some of those toys....so I'm looking for the best deal for a base 2.5SL.
  • dhauerdhauer Posts: 16
    Are you talking about a 2.5S with an SL package? That car will get 24k + t t & l. Stickers at $25,195.
  • pghaltimapghaltima Posts: 19
    negotiating with some dealers about getting the 2.5SL for 23k. I know it is not easy.

    Sometime between now and Sun. March 25, I'll be buying an '07 3.5se LOADED... premium package (sport pack included), Tech package, VDC, CVT. I'm out in NorCal. Some of you seem to be pros so what you think is the rockest, bottomest price i might get away with. I've been told by the dealer we'll aim for 29,500 and of course he says he'll do the best he can. way i figure it since he threw it out there i'm going to hold him to it, unless you think i can do better... thoughts?

    Hello, Just got back from a dealer in Southern CA with this info on a fully loaded 3.5 SE...

    MSRP = $32,715
    Adjusted cost = $30,167
    MF = .00221
    Term = 36
    Residual = 60% ($19,629)

    Quoted me a payment of $402 ($434 w/tax)

    This was with $2000 down, assuming that included TTL, conversation didn't get too far...However, in his caluclations it seems that he did not subtract my downpayment from the adjusted cap cost so I don't know...With that I caluclated my payment should be in the $369 range...

    Anyone, have a quote on a similar car, I also heard that there is a "monthly special" on a 24 month lease giving a 70% residual...

    glozaeta, I was hoping to get a final price more around where you were told, please keep me posted on how that goes...

    Any info appreciated...

    Also, anyone know of any junk fees to watch out for...

    Sealed the deal for a 2007 2.5SL precision gray with charcoal leather, anti lock brake, splash guard (sticker ~$25,500) for only $23,000. Edmund TMV is $23,400. This is probably the best deal east of the mississippi. West Hills Nissan in Pittsburgh is the best. and did I mention the car is gorgeous....

    Congratulation!! I bought the same color as yours 2.5S 3 weeks ago and love it. Not many on the road with this color. I see lots of Black and Silver. I love Precision Gray. You got a good deal. Does that include Convenient Package too?
  • pghaltimapghaltima Posts: 19
    yeah on the convience package...leather and stuff, but no connection package (bluetooth & BOSE stereo). really bummed about that. it is niceeee.
  • ckjesckjes Posts: 6
    Dark Slate / Charcoal Leather

    SL Package
    Rear Spoiler
    Splash Guard
    Floor Mats

    I've been in the market for only 3 days.

    And the best offer i have got so far is 23,999 Net Cost Plus Tax License.

    I know it's not the best deal compare to others in this board.

    So plz tell me how to deal with the dealers online with tips.

    * what is TTL?
  • pghaltimapghaltima Posts: 19
    you just have to get the dealers to fight it out. you need to set a deadline on when you will sign the papers and let them know. they won't like fight it out but you need to force their hand. Where are you at to get 23999? I got my 07 2.5SL in precision gray / charcoal leather without the rear spoiler....for 23000. nerve racking, you must remain strong. They will tell you that if you argue for more then they will take the deal off the table but you just have to play the game and keep to a number you like....your might be 23200 for best deal (if any dealer will fall for it)..good luck.
  • ckjesckjes Posts: 6
    Thank you for your tips.

    Hope i can make the deal just like yours.

    One more question, should i talk about the financing online

    before i get to the dealer??

  • pghaltimapghaltima Posts: 19
    I personally would keep everything open and I would just ask for the price first. You don't want to give the dealer any idea on what you will do because that is power. There is a 3.9% 3yr financing but I paid cash so I don't have to worry about all that crap.

    hope you get a really good deal....you have to keep all of us updated.
  • glozaetaglozaeta Posts: 4
    I GOT THE CAR TODAY!!! Final MSRP was $32,882 on the dealer trade. It was everything I wanted, TATALLY LOADED!! even had the kick plates! Final price was $29,633. $200 below invoice according to the dealer. I think I got away with a pretty good deal.

    Thanks you guys for your tips.

    Now the best offer i got is

    $25,000.00 O.T.D.
    Including tax, lic, fee

    without the spoiler.

    Every dealer says that there is none with the spoiler

    in CA.

    Should i keep going?

    Or you think this is a fairly good deal?

    Is it ok to put the spoiletr later at the dealer shop?

    THanks.
  • "* what is TTL?"

    Tax, title and license. Can be considerable (the tax part, that is--title & license all the same) depending upon whether you have a trade-in or not. Here in Texas, the tax is figured upon the remaining balance after trade-in. Suppose the total comes to $25,000--you're allowed $15,000 on your 1950 Ford Tudor Sedan with radio/heater/overdrive/plastic seat covers--you pay 6-1/2% on the remaining $10,000, plus whatever the title and licensing fees are, usually about $75. That's why it's critical to get as much as possible for the trade-in, not just lowers the price but the tax, as well. You'd have to take that into consideration if you were to sell your car to a private party. You might get $1,000 more, but you'd have to figure how much MORE it's going to cost you to pay tax on the whole $25,000 before it would be worth while.

    That sounds pretty good. you have to figure the MSRP on the car without any options, destination charge, or other extras is about 20,000. so for another 5k your getting the sl package, abs, splash guards, mats, taxes, tittle, tags, destination.

    If you realy want to save every dollar you can, just take that offer to another dealer and ask them if they're intersted in beating it.
  • I just bought a 2.5SL with SL pack, ABS, Floor Mats, Spoiler, Kick Plates, Fog Lights, Emergency Kit, Splash Guards, Wind Deflector for $24,000 plus TTL. This was 369 below invoice.
  • pghaltimapghaltima Posts: 19
    that's a really good deal. I got a precision gray, charcoal leather, abs,mats, wind deflector 2.5SL without spoiler, kickplate, fog light, emergency kit for 23,000. The dealers here in pittsburgh really didn't want to sell the car for 23,000 so your 24000 with all those extras is a steal.

    Hi, I just got mine at the end of Febuary, and have been driving it for a while! I love it. I got it at 22,751 +TTL I had 3 dealers battle it out to get this price lol same package but without the Emergency Kit and spoiler :)
  • pghaltimapghaltima Posts: 19
    WOW, 22,751 is really nice. I just got my 07 altima 2.5SL 3 days ago for 23,000 without anything except for antilock, splash guard, and wind deflector.

    What dealership?
  • dllovettdllovett Posts: 2
    I bought a 2007 Altima at the end of February with the following options:

    SL Package
    Connection Package w/ XM
    Spoiler
    Fog Lights
    ABS
    Floor Mats
    Alum. Kick Plates
    Emergency Pckg
    Splash Guards

    MSRP was $27,545, invoice @ $25,408 and I paid $24,498. I did have a dealer fee of $600 so after that, I came out $310 under invoice + TTL. Turns out I could have done better if I'd waited until March, with the 100,000 car event. I got an offer of $500 below invoice w/ no dealer fee last week...oh well.

    I'm very happy with the car - it is loaded and awesome! The seats were a little stiff, but are softening up a bit. It's a lot of fun to drive and the Bose radio is great.
  • Was just quoted $397 15k per year for 39 months...Zero out of pocket all fees including tax, title and reg. rolled into payment...The car is loaded with everything except a spoiler...Do you think this is a good deal?

    I can't believe what you all are claiming to be buying your Altima's for. I'm in Michigan, the most depressed state in the union right now and I can't get a dealer to selling me a car for $500 OVER invoice. They are all talking $1,000 over or I can go fly a kite! I've got a 753 credit score and can easily be financed, but I'm getting treated like a red-headed stepchild. Congrats to all of you! Maybe I'll wait and find one in another state and just drive it back to Michigan...that would be fun anyway.
  • "I'm getting treated like a red-headed stepchild."

    No, you mean red-headed CROSS-EYED FRECKLE-FACED stepchild... Good luck!
  • bv050506bv050506 Posts: 97
    Exactly! I did some more negotiating yesterday and I've got 1 dealer to $195 over invoice but now he wants to go lower on the trade. I'm trading in a 2007 Camry XLE with everything but NAV, in superb shape. They are telling me $20K because it has 20,000 miles on it. They also admitted they'd start it on the lot for $26,900, I can't win. I may start a nationwide search for a dealer that will sell to me for under invoice which is $26,880 including destination. If I fly to Oregon or Florida, it would be a great way to break in the new Altima anyway.
