    I had an interesting phone conversation with a Nissan sales manager on pricing of a 2009 Maxima. As a result of the Olympics and Nissan's TV sales campaign, 2009 Maximas are no longer being discounted at his dealership. He offerred me a $200 coupon off of MSRP. What a nice guy!

    By the way, I'm finding most dealerships are now offerring $3k to $4k discounts on the 2009 Maxima. So, this one dealership is really going for the "Gold". Literally!

    I was orginally looking at less expensive cars as this is a company car that will aquire a lot of miles. I got an 08 SE with Leather, moonroof that opens, Bose and sensory package for $25,300. This is a lot of car for that amount of money. Sticker was $33,600 plus the deal had on of those crappy $1,000 side stickers to make it $34,600. Big selling feature was that it takes regular or premium. I have put nothing but regular it and it is fine.

    what state did you get that great deal.

  • jeffc10jeffc10 Posts: 2
    I got it in GA (Gwinnett County). After shopping it was apparrent the dealers are getting extra back end $$ to move them out. If you can live with not having the latest model (09) I do not think you can buy more car at that amount. Interesting all the rebates negate any financing offer, but I got a 4.64% for 60 (I do have a 800+) but that says they did not put any uplift on the Cap One financing. Again moving them out. Lastly most of the dealers had only loaded SE's and SL's left, all the base SE's are long gone.

    Repost from 8/4/08:

    How much was Dobbs' dealer fee? Are the posted prices legit? Any high pressure, hard sell on add ons, competitive financing, etc?
  • Dobbs dealer fee was $479. I know I got took on that but I made up for it with the overall deal I got considering dealers were not wanting to come off of sticker. No high pressure at all. they have their prices advertised on website. check it out.
  • Catdaddy,
    Still sounds like a good deal considering the market right now. I was afraid there might by a hefty doc fee considering the aggressive prices posted.

    I will not be ready until about this time next year. I am sure by then there will be good deals most anywhere. While the price is good, adding $479 to a cheap airline ticket and the gas to get home to SC I imagine will get me right back up to the VPP Nissan supplier price that I could get at the dealer 2 miles away from home. Plus I can get an extended warranty directly from Nissan at cost if i want it.

    Thanks for you info.
  • I couldn't get a good deal where I live. I received $2500 more for my trade in there and the most I could get them off of MSRP was $2500 at only 1 dealership here in Texas. The rest of the dealers did not want to come off any. I felt like coming off $4000 was very good. They had about 20 on the lot to choose from.
  • I think you made out like a bandit, especially since you were already in the area for other reasons. I will have to do the math when the time comes. It might not be worth it for me since it would be a special trip for that reason only.
  • Have you checked out their website at

    All prices are listed on the internet
  • Oh yes,
    You got me interested a few weeks ago when you advised us of your purchase. Dobbs does not publish what their doc fees are though. This was a red flag for me. A lot of places will advertise a low number and then later you will find out that this # doesn't include destination and/or a high doc fee which makes their real price much higher and no better than any other dealer.

    This is why I was curious to hear the whole story from you. I would need to know the total picture so I could decide if buying from them or another low cost dealer is really worth the $ and hassle involved in buying far away from home.

    I think my strategy will be to take Dobbs (and others) price to a few local dealers and see what happens. If they say heck no, I can always add the price of the plane ticket and fuel to drive home to my offer and see if that works. If they say heck no again, I have to decide to take a chance on Dobbs, Fitzmall, etc. or to accept the VPP supplier price which is:

    "Dealer invoice
    Minus VPP discount (Nissan 2.87% : Infiniti 1.65%)
    Plus dealer added options, Security Plus, Infiniti Extended Protection Plan, etc.
    Plus 2.5% delivery fee of dealer invoice after VPP discount has been subtracted
    Plus destination and handling charge
    Minus applicable incentives
    Equals participant's purchase price"

    Not a bad deal; gets close to invoice with no hassle. I will have to compare this to what Dobbs/Fitzmall/and others report on these forums as the months go by.

    If I weren't locked in a lease for another year, I would probably be on my way to Memphis by now.

    Thanks again.

    In mid-August, I purchased a 2009 Maxima w/Premium and the Technology Packages. In Central North Carolina, I was able to get $3700 off MSRP. Doc fee was $399. Nissan Apex dealer was also very nice to work with and came very close to this price - they just didn't have the specific color/options I was looking for.

    If you can travel, best deals in the Eastern USA appear to be at Dobbs Nissan in Memphis. Even with a $700 shipping fee, you may come out ahead buying from these folks if you live in a big city where large discounts are still hard to find.
  • not a bad price sounds like this dealer ship is grate what color did you end up getting exterior and interior color how do you like the car Thanks for rreading have a verry good day Marco.

    I've had the car 3 weeks now and still love it. I particularly like the car for its luxury features - more so than its sportiness. I plan to publish a review of the car in another week. I got Blue with Tan interior.
  • Are any Dallas area dealerships offering any significant discounts off the MSRP of the 09 Maxima? If so, how much and for what model and package?
