  • I got a quote for 09 Versa 1.6 Auto A/C with ABS package of $1,3700 OTD with $500 college cash back. Is this too high? My calculation is $1,1700 OTD according to carbuyingtips.com.

    Thanks
  • Bought mine yesterday in NC. I paid 15,900 out the door. The rundown-

    Splash Guards
    1.8 SL Convenience Package
    ABS Package
    Floor and Trunk Mats

    TMV lists this car w/options at $17,664, invoicing at 17,462. Nissan website MRSP is 18,190. All those are BEFORE taxes, tags, and document fees.

    I started out at overstock.com, which gave me 3 quotes, the lowest being the "guaranteed lowest price". Phone called a dealership 2 hours away that had the exact same car, and asked for a better deal, mentioning they were so far away from me. Got an written email quote from them good for 3 days. Sent that email to a local dealership, who beat the price by $10 and threw in free floor and trunk mats. Test drove the vehicle in their store, didn't buy that day. Researched their stock and came back the next day and made them an offer on one that included ABS.

    Be careful- they tried to get me with the extended warranty. Quoted me 100,000miles/60months for $2500, and kept dropping it until it hit $956.

    I just got a quoto from a dealer. He says that with my discount(employee of UM have the VPP discount) including taxes the OTD price is only $16,891 + Plate fee.
    2009 Nissan Versa 1.8SL HB with power pack(Splash Guards, 1.8 SL Convenience Package, ABS Package, Floor and Trunk Mats).
    But I have not got the detailed information of the OTD price.

    He says that the car stickers at $18,070. From KBB, the MSRP is $16,905.00; Invoice is $16,329.00 and the New Car Blue Book Value is $16,820.00.

    So is it a good deal? I am a new man that want to buy a new car. Thanks for your suggestion.

    I am in Arr Arbor, MI.
  • Check out my post above yours. Exact same car. I had no "employee discount" and got mine 15900 out the door. That included the plate fee. I think you can get it down a bit more, but he gave you a "reasonable" offer. You should get it in writing/email and see if any other nearby dealerships can do better. Good luck!

    Could you tell me the detailed price information you paid on this vehicle (including the invoice, tax, rebate and so on). Thanks a lot! I want to bargain with the dealer.
  • This info is taken right off of my "Buyer's Order":

    MSRP: 16390.29 (they adjusted this price to meet my "out the door" offer)
    NC Highway Use Tax: 491.71
    Documentary Fee: 444
    License and Title: 74
    Subtotal: 17400
    Rebate: 1500
    Total: 15900

    I hope that helps!
  • I have a quote for $14,886 plus tax and title for abs, cruise, power package, mats and guards. Is this a fair price?

    Thanks
  • scorpicscorpic Posts: 5
    I also got a quote of the same vehicle.

    2009 Nissan Versa 1.8S HB: has splash guards, power package, cruise control, rear roof spoiler, ABS Brakes, and Floor & Trunk Mats.

    Stickers at $16,315
    Invoice at $15,575

    Again I won't know your Exactly discount till you come in but it should be about $300 below Invoice (Below Dealer Cost).

    $15, 275 (your price w/ V.P.P. Discount)
    $190 (Documentation fee)
    _________________________________

    $15,465 (total taxable price)

    $16,392.90
    - $750 (rebate on the 2009 Nissan S HB model...the SL has $1500 in rebates)

    $15,642.90 + Plate fee ($23 if transferring a plate from another vehicle. A new plate fee depends on your birthday)

    Thanks a lot. Your MSRP is amazing.
  • what is V.P.P Discount? My out the door price is $16,008.41 fair?

    I am not sure if you are qualify for this offer. Enter your company code, then you got it.
    So where are you? I think we should beat the price down.
  • is 16,008 OTD fair price?

    White 2009 SL w/ CVT
    Mfg options: Convenience package, Floor/Trunk Mats, Splash guards
    Dealer options: Window tint, wheel locks
    MSRP: $17940 before $1500 rebate (not including dealer option costs; from Edmunds.com)
    Invoice: $17209 before rebate
    Sales price: $15760 before rebate
    When you add in the rebate, and the Texas AirCheck $3K voucher for my 1990 Honda Accord, my OTD price was $12100 or so.

    This car had been on the lot since July 2008, bought it last Saturday night of the quarter (3/28/09). Woohoo!
  • Just bought an 09 Versa SL h/bck with all options available inc. sunroof for $18,500 inc. payments/tax over 4 years. The dealer offered an extended warranty for 7yrs/70 or 100m miles for $1,650. Since the car is fully loaded then seems a good idea to take the extended warranty, but is the price reasonable on it?

    In Feb bought a versa hatchback s, barebones, manual windows,locks,AC, six speed, with dealer installed cruise for 13500 out the door, tag and tax included.This was Sandy Sansing Pensacola Florida.

    Almost bought a 1.6 sedan with air at Chris Meyer over the border in Alabama but he tried to change the deal at the last moment. Had agreed to pay 11500 out the door for a 1.6 sedan with 5 speed and air. Agreed to put 1500 down and specified that the 1500 was part of the 11500. I think the sales manager realized he couldn't sell at that price and tried to change the deal to 11500 +1500 for a total of13000.

    Low ball tactic. I had agreed to pay an additional 270 for dealer installed cruise but couldn't stomach the dirty tactic and the fact that he kept insisting I had misunderstood about the down payment when I had specifically asked for clarification earlier.

    Have had the car for one month no complaints. Enough power to get on freeway and plenty of back seat room. Sandy Sansing was very direct in their negotiation.

    So 13500 otd good, average, or bad?

    thanks,
    john

    sounds very bad deal.
    including every package.MSRP18330
    I forget said OTD price to the saleman.(then they try to cheat me after I sign the contract).. car price 14800 the saleman added 695 for destination charge.
    695 for bank loan documents fee(that's [non-permissible content removed])
    also they accout the tax add the 1500 rebate base on the price we settle.
    actually I already refuse the car prepare and other charge (about 460)
    otherwise,I will get higher price ..
    carzy..very bad experience...

    I've had experience with Honda and Toyota, but I am new to Nissans.

    What brought me here is the price. My big question is if I can get a versa 1.8 S automatic for under $12k out the door?

    And if so, how does this car compare to hondas and toyotas? I'm mostly worried about reliability. I just want to have a car that I can get an oil change every 5k miles or more with no other hassles for at least 3 years. Thanks

    Any car can need repairs, so that is an exercise in probability. Don't know if you are talking about the hatch or sedan, pwr options or not. Depending on your state, taxes and tag could range from $300-1700, so OTD is not very descriptive.

    I haven't bought a Versa (yet, i hope :P)

    Anyways, I want the Versa SL Hatchback with the CVT. I want the convenience package and the ABS. On Nissan's website it makes me add the splash guards when I add those two... do i need to have those to get the convenience package??

    How much can I expect to pay for a CVT HB? The dealer had the exact car i wanted with a price of 15500 after all rebates... how much more room for negotiation do i have?

    My goal is $16000 OTD, after all taxes/fees/title, etc is that too high? Can i get it for lower?

    Any advice would be great, thanks so much!!!

    Well I've seen the SL HB with CVT, ABS, and splash guards in my area going for $14,166 (MSRP of $18,070) so hope that gives you a better idea as to what to target for.
  • Is there anyone buy the versa 1.8 S sedan this days?
    I would like to plus
    1. power package
    2. Mat
    3. splash guards

    Is this possible to buy it around 12500? with outdoor price?

    The dealer give me 14169 for ODP?
    I would hope to know is that possible? or it's good enough?
  • swooshbugswooshbug Posts: 5
    Thanks alamocity!

    Is the 14166 you mentioned the price before or after taxes?? Is that after/before incentives?
  • alamocityalamocity Posts: 680
    That is the price before TT&L and does include the rebate.
  • swooshbugswooshbug Posts: 5
    Has anyone ever used Nissan financing?

    I could get an additional $750 in incentives, and the $500 recent college grad incentive if I finance through Nissan...

    But, I've already been pre-approved at my credit union for a 48 month loan at 5.25 APR or a 60 month loan for 5.35 APR..

    Will Nissan's rates be a lot higher? My credit score is around 720-750 if that helps.

    Thanks for any help!

    I apologize for not giving enough info.

    This is the options I want on an 1.8 s model. I don't care whether it is a hatchback or not.

    Optional Equipment $1,180 $1,023 $1,023
    P02 Power Package $730 $633 $633
    T01 ABS Package $250 $217 $217
    R01 Cruise Control $200 $173 $173
    Color Adjustments - - $0
    Not Sure
    Destination Charge $720 $720 $720

    I want to know if I can get this for $11,300 + $720 destination + taxes + license fee. This is in the Miami, FL area. I plan to go into the dealership and tell the guy I am ready to buy at $11,300. I don't know anything about how the cashback incentive works, just care about how much I am financing.
  • Hey~

    11300 is the total invoice of the 1.8S with all the optional equipment you want?
    I just want make sure because I quote for 1.8S sedan with the same optional equipment for invoice price 12498. But I am in California~~

    If this is the real price, can I ask them to match it??

    Okay, I'm going in tonight to talk to one of the two Nissan dealers near me.

    The car I want is: SL 09 HB w/CVT, ABS, convenience package, and floor mats.
    MSRP = $18035, Invoice = $17307, and TMV = $17557

    I'm eligible for 3 rebates if I finance through Nissan: the $1750 customer cash (don't need to finance through Nissan), the $750 Bonus cash, and the $500 recent grade bonus cash, for a total of $3000 in incentives.

    I see a lot of you are getting the car for a thousand or two less than invoice after rebates, and fitzmall.com has the same car for $13910 after rebates (the $1750 and $750 ones, doesn't include college grad), so I should be able to get it for around $13410 after all rebates, right?

    So, my goal should be around $16410 before rebates, taxes, title, tags?
    That would mean my OTD including all fee and taxes would be around $14600.

    Does that sound like a good price? Is the dealer likely to agree to something like that?

    Oh, and regarding the financing, my credit union will refinance the Nissan loan at the new car rate they pre-approved me for, so as long as Nissan doesn't have any sort of pre-payment penalties, or restrictions on how long you need to have the loan in order to get the rebates I plan on financing through Nissan to get the extra $1250 in rebates and then re-finance at my credit union for a lower rate.

    Has anyone financed through Nissan? Do they have a pre-payment penalty??

    Thanks for any help, it is much appreciated!!!

    hey, I was asking if anyone thought I could get that price. Not that I have received that quote. No one has answered me, so it might not be possible. Unfortunately I won't go to the dealership until july, so I won't let you know how it goes anytime soon.
  • Hi, thanks for your information.
    I can also share my information to you.
    The lowest OD price I have already got is 13900.
    And I am still trying to negotiate with them~

    Good luck for both of us!
