Nissan Altima Hybrid Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • todaotodao Posts: 7
    Don't know if you went ahead. I'm after a fully loaded (conv, comm, tech, moonroof) with $800 down and $475/month for 39 months at 15K miles per year. Don't know how good that is. Supposedly based on a $31,100 OTD price.

    Dirito Bros in Concord, CA.

    Too bad I'm in NY!

    As of this morning, 6 in stock at this price.
  • We just purchased a 2009 NAH fitted with the technology package at Tonkin Nissan in Wilsonville, Oregon. The price was just over $28,000 after the $3500 Nissan rebate available through June of this year. Moreover, there is also a very nice $2,350 federal tax credit coming, along with another $1,500 state tax credit here in Oregon. Therefore, the final price for the vehicle was just over $24,000.


    The dealership experience was very good. The staff was friendly, professional and well informed. The only issue is simply availability; there was only one NAH in stock when we arrived for a test drive.

    The car is very comfortable inside, fully appointed, handles well on the road, very low emissions and good mileage, and it performs well for a hybrid. We test drove the Toyota, Honda and Ford hybrids as well, but the NAH was the clear choice for us.

    It sounds like you got a nice deal. However, the federal tax credit is only $2,350.
  • Thanks for pointing that out-- I edited my post to fix the math...
  • Here are some photos of the "Blackbird" recently purchased:

    Any idea on how low I can get the base hybrid?

    I saw it advertised for $20k. My local dealer said he would match that price.. is this good or can I go any lower?

    Also, what insurance company would you recommend for this car? We have Progressive and their quote for this car is rather high in my opinion.

    $20k is pretty good. I think I've seen someone get $19499 though. Not sure if it's worth it to try and pry every penny from the salesman though
  • $20K is good. I know there are big Nissan rebates that expire at the end of this month, up to $3,500. There is also 0% financing.

    The cheapest insurance I could find was through American National.

    Lowest price I got so far is 19.8k + tax/reg from 1 dealer that is a little remote

    Does that quote seem serious to you? My local dealers are pretending that it isn't.. (of course :))
  • For the base NAH it's likely a serious quote. Last week, we purchased ours for $19,999 after deducting the rebate .

    However, the first dealer we actually went to did not believe the quote and would not even counter offer us. We left and bought it the next day at the advertised price. Today, my wife's niece's husband went to the dealer that did not sell us the car and he dropped my name. They were willing to sell it to him for the $19,999. The car probably has more miles on it now(saw it on their online inventory list and it was the only one in that color on their lot). We saw it last Saturday and it had 50 miles on it. The one we bought had eight miles on it. We did have to travel an extra 15 miles to buy it but we saved $1500.00 in the process.

    Was thinking of getting a Atima hybrid - along with the Convinience + Connection + Technology package. or just with the Convinience package. Just wondering what folks paid?

    Also does anyone know if NJ has any tax credits on hybrids in addition to the federal tax credit

    I just purchaed my NAH about 2 weeks ago here in NY. I ended buying the a fully loaded one as the dealer IAdvantage Nissan) wouldn't let me leave as the say. I paid 30,000 which was 3704 off list along with the 3250 rebate. I still get the federal tax credit. I purchased an extended warranty (7 yars 100,000 miles) which I can cancel within 60 days and I still thinking about it. The only advantage to this one is that if I don't use it I can get my money back. The only problem I have had is my regular car battery had died twice in 8 days and I am finally getting a new one. Anyone here about this?
  • I also had a dead battery on my 2008 Altima. I stopped to run an errand on the way home from work and when I got back into the car, it would not start. All I could get was a clicking sound when I pressed the start button. Road side service casme and boosted the car and it started. The dsame thing happened again the next morning so I boosted it and took it to the dealership.

    The dealership said the battery was low but not defective. I complained and they replaced the batte, but found nothing else in their analysis.

    No problems since then with the main battery. The dealership told me that they haven't heard of anyone else having any problems. Abviosly I am not alone.

    there should be a TSB on replacing the panasonic batteries with optima ones. which one do you have?

    What you guys think of this?

    NAH w/ Connection Package and sunroof for $25,300 after rebate incentive. After Hybrid tax credit, it will come down to $22,950

    4 year registration in NJ - $206
    Doc fee - $139

    We bought our NAH with convenience package yesterday for $23,100 OTD in Orange County CA.

    I believe the price before taxes and registration (but after fees) is around $20,700.

    I also got 5.99 % financing, which was pretty good considering credit unions would not even lend me anything given my limited credit history.
  • The last day of the month was a good time to buy. I received two calls from a dealer that did not want to deal two weeks ago on June 29th and 30th.

    Nissan announced sales for June being down 20 something percent which was much better than May's sales figures. If the economy is showing some bottoming the incentives could be reduced in the near future.

    Rebate of 3250 extended to 7/31, and bonus cash of 500 till 7/8. Confirmed with dealer that you DO NOT have to finance with NMAC to get the rebate, contrary to Edmunds information.

    missed the $500 rebate since I bought last month.

    One of the dealers wanted to sell me the base hybrid for $22,295 OTD in Socal, without even negociating.

    That was from Nissan El Monte (if anyone is interested). I guess with the new $500 rebate it may be possible to target $21,700 - $21,800. Minus $2,350 tax rebate that's around $19.3k.

    What a deal when you compare to other cars in this price range.
