Nissan Sentra Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    If it was a demo, they didn't tell me, he had the car ready to be test driven when I came in but it didn't have mats and wasn't washed but it only had 54 miles on it. This is how it was listed:
    Price (including freight, handling and delivery): 15,144.36
    Processing fee for consumer services: 499.00
    Title Tax: 469.30
    Dealer's business license tax: 26.59
    Online systems filing fee: 10.00
    Registration Fee: 40.75
    Title Fee: 10.00
    Total delivered price: 16,200.00
    Rebate: -1,500.00
    Total: 14,700.00
    I'm not sure why the title tax is coming out to 3.09% and not 3.17% but I was told it was 3.17 in VA, it might be because they didn't break down what the freight/handling/delivery charges were separate from the price. 469.30 is 3.17% of 14,804.42 which may then be the price excluding the freight, handling and delivery. Thanks and I hope you enjoy your new car as well.

    Nissan had much better deals at the end of 2010 because they had customer cash rebates which i am not sure if they do now you should check into that. I bought a 2011 Nissan Sentra SR with convenience package(handsfree bluetooth,leatherwrapped steering wheel, cargo net) plus splash guards and floor mats for $15,135 plus TTT. It came to about $16,600 including everything. I think you can get a better deal if you can afford to wait. The Nissan Sentra is o.k. not crazy about the CVT transmission takes a while to get used to. Have you looked into other vehicles? The Ford Fiesta is a nice little vehicle available in sedan and hatchback that i am regretting not looking at but i would definitely not get the Nissan Sentra at that price. There are other cars in that price range that are better quality. The reason ibought mine was the rebates which made the price alot lower than the competition. Hope this helps

    i have narrowed down my choices between the new 2011 elantra and the 2011 nissan sentra SR..however,the hyundai dealers are not moveing from msrp so i might go with the sentra when the rebates are in effect...

    Your best deal will be the Nissan Sentra, hands down. However, the best deals with Nissan have come and gone. If you had purchased your Sentra SR in February or March, you could have picked one up for 14,800, including the convenience package. There were very heavy rebates going on then. Those
    generous rebates were halved when the calendar turned from March 31 to April
    Fools Day. Buying any automobile in May or June is the height of the greed season for auto dealers. Demand is high and transaction prices are much closer
    to retail prices during this period. If you can wait till July, or especially August,
    you will see rebates get better with 2011 models being sold for discount. That is,
    if you can wait that long. If you buy now, you could be 'raked over the coals.'

    Just came home with a new 2011 Sentra 2.0 SR with Special Edition package, Auto-dimming mirror, floor mats and splash guards in Northeast Ohio. Breakdown was as follows:

    MSRP: $20,225
    Sale Price: $18,550 (before $500 rebate)
    Rebate: $500 (with 2.9% through NMAC)
    Doc Fee: $250
    Sales Tax: $1175
    DMV/Title: $33.50

    Total OTD: $19,508.50

    Nissan of North Olmsted hooked it up with the best price I received among 4 other dealers in the area.
  • Note: this is for Arizona with its 9%+ sales tax rate depending what City. Purchased a new Sentra S with tint, mudflaps, convenience package, upgraded stereo (but not Nav) for $18,799.99 out the door. This included $500 rebate, 0% for 36 months from NIMAC and $500 new graduate rebate. I see that others have much lower tax rates and we apparently missed those $2500 rebates that were available last December. Doc fee was $299, DMV/Title $246. Got this deal from Earnhardt Nissan through internet pricing. 90 days before first payment.
  • Hey which dealer did you get that from VA?

    I'm currently looking for the same car 2011 or 2012 Nissan Sentra SR for around the same price since she just recently graduated :-)
  • I'm getting a 2012 Nissan Sentra SL for $19,000 OTD. Get it or should I wait until July? Thanks for all the help/info!
  • I totally forgot to mention the specs: heated leather seats, alloy wheels, sunroof, keyless entry... the only thing it doesn't have is a GPS/voice sync system that I could really use since I like to talk but I dont want to be holding my cellphone and talking while driving. The sync would've great to help me keep both my hands on the steering wheel.

    That seems like a good price. What's the price before taxes and fees?

    By July, the all-new 2013 Sentra might be out. Is that what you mean by waiting for July, or would you be looking for a close-out deal on a 2012?
  • Yeah that's what I meant... so that I could get a good deal on 2012 model but the dealer said that by that time almost all of them will be sold out since they sell pretty fast (which of course he would since he's trying to make a sale). The price before the TTT and fees was $17,800.

    hi folks,looking into purchasing a 2012 nissan sentra SR special edition package.msrp is $20,560.00 and includes interior accent lighting and floor mats as additional is hinting around 17,600.00 which would include the $1000.00 rebate that's in effect through nissan.iam trying to get them down to around 17 k+TTT.with all the competition out there that the sentra competes with such as the cruze,elantra,ect...the sentra's aren't selling very well so you would think that the dealers would be willing to deal.
  • backybacky Twin CitiesPosts: 18,682
    What would a comparably-equipped Cruze or Elantra cost these days?

    The Sentra could still be a good deal even at $3000 off MSRP. But you might find a dealer willing to go near $17k. It takes some work, and maybe some luck.

    When I set out to lease a Sentra 2.0S two years ago, I scouted around re deals in my area, found the best deal I could, contacted the Internet sales manager to make sure the deal was legit and they had cars in stock, then went to the closest dealer (which I know has very good service, I've leased two other Nissans from them) and told them what I'd found and asked if they could beat it. I was looking for a low payment with sign&drive. The sales rep hemmed and hawed, then I got a call from another dealer I had talked with earlier and we had a little chat re their best price--in front of the sales rep. I told the guy on the phone the best offer I'd had to date was $189/month sign&drive for 39 months (which was true). After we talked and he gave me a better offer, I told him I'd get back to him shortly, hung up, and told the sales rep in front of me that I could get $184/month sign and drive at the other dealer, for 39 months (again true), and I was going to head over there if he couldn't beat it. So he did--$179/mo, but I had to make the first payment. I hesitated on that, since I wanted 0 out of pocket, then he offered to toss in a Garmin nav system and a portable DVD player... both of which I could use. I said, "Deal!" and we shook on it.

    Dealers hate to lose a sale... especially someone who is serious and will definitely buy/lease that day, but maybe not from them.
  • Drove home a 2012 Nissan Sentra SL with leather package and SL special value packages, auto dimming mirror, splash guards, floor mats.
    Dealer stated MSRP was 23150. Dealer started email negotation at 19000+TTL. Final price 18000+TTL. (19500 OTD in texas).
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    that's $5000.00 off the msrp..not bad....but then again the sentra is not a hot seller like the elantra or chevy cruze so that's why you got a pretty good deal.
