    do u think a wind deflector is worth it, they are putting it on today on my 2005 altima sl i dont know if i like how it looks, do u like it email me asap at thanks in advance

    i think the wind deflector makes a difference in wind noise when the roof is open. it's also less likely to create that weird pressure issue if you just open the sunroof and not any other windows. to me, its worth it!

    Best Deal!!!!

    $16,900 includes rebate, but no add ons, just taxes and tags. MSRP $20,550

    I just got a quote for a loaded 2.5s w/ the prem plus conv package and the ABS. I was wondering, since the extra radio and sunroof arent that crucial, if the 3.5 would be a better buy. I was hoping the lease prices would come out the same, but I'm not sure completely if the programs are different. I have a few request for quotes into dealers now, but haven't heard anything back. Any info you can give before the end of the month would be greatly appreciated!

    The program is the same on all Altimas, IF you live around the Washington DC area, I could help you. As far as buying the SE vs 2.5S is matter of preference, 4cyl gives you better gas mileage, and 3.5 gives you power, so whatever is more important to you, plus the 3.5 already comes with ABS. You could get a Altima for $2600 below invoice price around here.

    A drive to DC isn't too far...haha. I'm just searching for the best deal and so far i've gotten the dealers at around 300 above invoice (not including the 750 rebate). I live in PA
  • cyninhicyninhi Posts: 18
    Since I live in Hawaii and we never get good deals, are we able to buy off island and have it shipped here? It would be so much cheaper.

    What are the pros and cons to this?

    A local dealer is offering $4000 off MSRP on any Altima in stock. At least, they were this past week - I don't know what will happen come June 1. This seems pretty good to me, particularly as I am shopping for a 2.5S with ABS/air bags and either the convenience package or the convenience plus. Any thoughts?

    Got quoted 18,400 this weekend for a 2.5S with Airbag/ABS and Convenience Plus. this price included the 1500 cash incentive.

    Is this a good price? any ideas on what incentives will be post 5/31?
  • thenebeanthenebean Posts: 1,124
    june! surprise ;-)

    i am not expecting rebates to go up yet - if they do, and that is IF, it won't be until the 2006 models come out...and even then, it may not go up until after the new year. but that is my guess - altimas are selling well, and im sure nissan doesnt want to kill the residual value by rebating the heck out of them.

    just my 2 cents!

    -thene :)
  • juniorbilljuniorbill Posts: 7
    $18,400 sounds good to me - $5,200 below MSRP, better than the $4,000 below MSRP ad I mentioned before, and $3,500 under invoice. I hope if anyone finds about about June incentives they post it.
  • juniorbilljuniorbill Posts: 7
    Forgot to ask - could you post the dealer and location where you got the quote for $18,400?
  • marko00marko00 Posts: 4
    Which dealer did you get the 3.5 SL from? Did you negotiate over the Internet first or you went to the dealership?
  • mbuntingmbunting Posts: 158
    I'm starting to send in some offers to local (Seattle/Tacoma, WA) Nissan dealers for the following vehicle:

    2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S (4cyl / Automatic)

    Premium Convenience Package
    ABS & Airbags Package

    Edmunds Invoice Price: $22,655.00 (w/ Destination Charge)

    I offered $21155.00 and that includes Destination Charges and also the current Nissan Rebate of -$1500.00

    This price ($21155.00) is basically Invoice cost (from edmunds) for this vehicle, with the $1500 Rebate factored in. Has anyone had similair success?

    Are you 2.5 owners happy with the power of the 4 cylinder? Moving to a sedan from an SUV (Pathfinder) because my commute is going to nearly quadruple starting in October (being transferred). Also, normally used to Leather is the feel and quality of the Cloth interior/seating in the Altima? I have only test driven a 3.5 SL w/ Leather previously.

    Thanks for any and all feedback...especially on pricing!

    P.S. I'll let you all know what I hear back as they come in...I've only sent out one offer so far though.

    Does anyone have an opinion if this a good deal on the Nissan Altima 3.5 SE
    no additional options.
    21,583.00 (includes rebate)
    its only about 60.00 lower then Edmunds TMV price, so
    is there room for additonal movement from the dealer?
  • What does everyone think of this lease deal?

    Code Red SE-R 6-speed with $800 airbag/traction ctrl package, $150 floormats, and $120 splashguards.

    24-month lease....12,000 miles per year....
    No money down except inceptions ($1350)
    ...$355/month including all tax

    I bought a 2.5s with the convience plus package a couple weeks ago and like the car very much. I paid 23,300 for mine but it does not have ABS or the airbag package. But I liked the car and for the money I didn't mind paying that much. Plus the salesman is my neighbor. So I hope he was doing the best that he could offer me because I know where he lives. He's got to pay bills too. I'm not a leather fan but I like the cloth seats not to hard and not to soft the adjustment is good for me. As for power I think it is a fun and peppy engine. A little loud on the highway but my other vehicle is a 2004 chevy duramax. So the noise is not bothersome for me. After driving a diesel I hate slow vehicles. But the altima is a good performer. Sounds like a pretty good offer on your car. Maybe wait to see if other dealers will compete on your offer and not take the first one you get.

    based on other leases on altimas i have run, that seems pretty aggressive to me! enjoy the SE-R! it really is an AWESOME car!

  • Hey,

    Looking for a 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5s.......just the basic one. Looked around in houston and everyone around here is in the 17,500 range for the car......

    MSRP: 20,380
    Invoice: 19,099
    Rebate: 1,500

    and im getting it for around 17,500....which is bacially invoice minus the rebate. Wanted to know if i could do any better. I had one dealership offer 17,200......and another also offer 16,485 plus ttl .......but im wondering if thats not just something that gets you in the door. What type of prices are going on with these types of cars. Let me know please. Thanks

    I decided on a 2 year 12k lease today on a black/black 2005 Altima 3.5 SL w/ Traction Control and side air bag package. With an MSRP of 28,770, a cap cost of 26,105, a residual of 68%, a down payment of 1,745 and a money factor of .00127, my monthly payments are 290. How did I do?
  • templer16templer16 Posts: 6
    OK here is my question:

    I got a 05' Altima 2.5S with an MSRP of 22,020, I leased it for 135 a month (taxes included) 15,000 miles a year and I can buy it at the end for 14.5k. I had a trade in of 3500.

    So how did I do???

    Second part, is that it got totaled 2 weeks later and now I am shopping agian, seeing if a I can do better. I got offfered 155 (tax included) for a 3.5S MSRP of 24,750 with 3500 down again, my residual of .69 still stayed the same and I can buy it for 16,880 at the end of 2yrs.

    Now I ask how does this compare to my first deal, and is this current deal a good offer???
  • sandylsandyl Posts: 42
    the real question is what the "selling price" was on the lease. to me, for the extra 20$ per month (which over 2 years would be about 500$ difference) really sounds like a great offer.

  • paul138paul138 Posts: 31
    can you check out my question #549.
    what is your opinion?
  • thenebeanthenebean Posts: 1,124

    MSRP on a 3.5SE with floor mats is $24,460, invoice is $22,657 minus rebate of $1500 is $21,157 plus tax, reg, doc etc. It looks as though they are pricing you a few hundred over invoice - so you can probably get them down another $450-$500 bucks, depending on your market, and how available that particular vehicle is.

    hope that helps!

    Saw some people posting about getting below invoice w/o rebate in DC area. I'm going to buy 1 today or tomorrow and would be very interested where this is. Best I've received so far is for invoice minus rebate.

    Thanks for the help.
  • thenebeanthenebean Posts: 1,124
    depending on the trim level and equipment, you may only be saving another $200-$500 at most on a vehicle into holdback. Altimas, unless fully loaded, dont carry tons of money in holdback, and so you really cant get $600 or more off - unless a dealer is DESPERATE to move a unit. your best bet is to go to the dealer who actually HAS the car you want, and work with them to get a price that is comfortable for you! if you shop a dealer that doesnt have the car in stock, they usually have to make sure they cover their cost for going to get it for you - meaning higher price to you.

    good luck!

    Just bought a new altima 2.5S without any package for 17.3. I am in wisconsin and this wasthe best rate i could find around here. What do u guys think about the price??
  • mchspdmchspd Posts: 1
    I just purchased an 05 2.5 S yesterday! Got what I wanted and was happy with the purchase! I searched for a couple of months and called every dealer in the Houston and outside area. Worked deals for a vehicle with exact options.

    Sheer Silver/Frost Cloth
    Conv. Pkg.
    Splash Guards

    MSRP 22,230
    OFFER 17,850 + TT&L (price reflects $1500 rebate)

    This was $350 lower than any other dealership in town. I worked all the deals via email and phone. I purchased it from Clear Lake Nissan from Russell Sr., Internet Manager. Turns out management from another Nissan dealership in town took over and wants to turn things around, and especially beat their group.

    Happy and surprised to get the 6 spoke star alloy rims on the vehicle. I had not seen that on any of the cars at other dealers.

    Deal was better for me to take the 2% financing over the $1500 rebate. So we closed the deal at $19,350 + TT&L. No money down.

    Hope this helps you guys out your deals!
