    Bought an 2010 Base yesterday here in Socal. I had them match + $200.00 North Bay Nissan's price which was worth it to me since I had I had a trade in and it was a 900 round trip drive. I was really surprised they went for it times must tough on these Hybrids but it came out less then a base model! Overall very happy.

    $27610 Msrp
    $23,695 price paid
    $4500 rebate

    $19195 +Fees
    $2350.00 tax credit
    $16845.00 or around $19k OTD
  • Wow, $23,695 price paid!
    Is this including your tradein?

    $16845.00 is really really cheap then.

    BTW, I only see $4000 rebate from Nissan website. How can you get $4500 rebate?
  • rzuffrzuff Posts: 3
    The trade in was a seperate deal and they gave me $500.00 more then the other two nissan dealerships that wanted $1800.00 more for the same hybrid model. so they didn't make it up there. It was also $700.00 more then Carmax would give me to sell it to them.

    The extra $500.00 rebate is something going on that ends this weekend for California residents.
  • Would you please tell me the dealership name. I am interested in a Hybrid Altima as well, so would try and get the same deal from the dealership.
  • rzuffrzuff Posts: 3
    It's one of the dealers in the San Diego area. They actually made me promise not to tell anyone in case the boss didn't agree again or was unavailable so I don't want to name them. I think this is the last day for the extra $500.00. What I did was email them and telling them I was thinking of doing the North Bay Nissan deal in Petaluma and driving up and and driving back. We agreed $200.00 would be fair for me not to have to do that. North Bay Nissian has the ad posted on there website for $18,995 after rebates but before the tax credit for a base model.

    If you need something today I did see Connell Chevrolet Costa Mesa had them for $7500.00 off which is about $800.00 more then I paid but still a great deal.

    Personally I think Nissan attached some sort of dealer incentive to sell these cars and get the inventory down but who cares them come out cheaper then the base 2.5 and drive much better IMO

    Just bought a Mystic Jade NAH, all the packages, floor mats, kick plates, after all taxes and fees, and with the huge Nissan rebates (but not the tax credit), $29769 out the door, in the Sacramento area.

    It's a great ride.

    Just picked up a base Altima Hybrid in dark slate with the convenience package and floor mats for 23615 OTD on Long Island, NY. Includes ttl fees. MSRP-28930 incl destination. The dealer threw in vin glass etching, I guess it was already done as I wasn't expecting any extras. In fact I didn't know it had the floor mats until I saw the window sticker after the purchase.

    I really would have liked some more options but adding the next package was another 4k+ on top of the convenience package and didn't want to spend the extra.

    I just bought one in Rochester, NY with P01 and K01 packages. MSRP $33,160 - $9500 OFF (the deal seems very good, I did not even negotiate), the final price before TTL is $23,660 and the trade-in (not included) for my Nissan Maxima GLE (95000 miles) is $4000.
  • kgatworkkgatwork Posts: 16
    Congratulation, Great price, wish you had posted sooner, I would have purchased one for that price. You got a better deal!

    What year Maxima did you trade and did you think you got a fair value?
  • vgavga Posts: 1
    Drove out yesterday. 10k off MSRP. 28.2k OTD here in NORCAL. After federal tax rebate, 28.2-2.3= 25.9K. Cheaper by more than 2k OTD, compared to equivalent gas based ALTIMA SL bcoz of the federal tax rebate.
  • gl14534gl14534 Posts: 7
    The trade-in was a 2000 Maxima. I am relatively new in this area and not sure if it's a fair value. The dealer said that the price was lower here. But the Altima deal seemed excellent yesterday and for the entire Memorial Day weekend. The discount is up to $10K on a fully loaded Altima. Mine does not have the tech package, thus $9500 OFF. With the additional $2.3K tax credit, it's hard to pass this deal.

    Thanks for the response, I'm just curious if these deals involve dealer financing?

    You are right about the 2.3k incentive, thats what sold me. :)
  • gl14534gl14534 Posts: 7
    Between $4000 Nissan cash back+$1000 bonus cash and 0% interest, I chose the cash. The interest at the dealer is 3.6% for 60 months.

    Bought the base NAH with no options for $18,700 plus tax and license, in San Jose, California. The price is great, about $9K off list. However, the dealer charged tax on the discounted amount before factory rebate is applied, so in effect I paid tax on the rebate. Is that how they are supposed to do?
  • hipercohiperco Posts: 9
    Rebates are taxable in New York, seems that California must be the same.
  • muoimuoi Posts: 1
    Can you tell me which Nissan's dealer in San Jose that you got this good price?
  • Bought our altima last week - after test driving the base model I was interested to see what the dealer had, And went walking with the salesman - he showed me the different trim options and then rushed by the hybrids. I started looking a little deeper and he let it slip that the Hybrid had a $4000 rebate instead of the base $1000. Add $500 for being a recent grad, and it was $1450 more out the door than the base model. $22500 OTD, and then the $2300 credit next year. Really great car at an excellent price.

    picked up frost white hybrid with convenience sticker of 28,940 for 20,900 and the additional tax credit for net cost of 18550. What do you guys think?
  • bizibizi Posts: 17

  • giraldogiraldo Posts: 16

    I would really like to buy an Altima Hybrid but it is not available in my state. I am considering an out of state purchase but probably can't pull it off before end of June (3 more days). Do you guys think the deal will last into July? The 4K incentive? How long has it been around for? and what is Nissan's history with incentives?

    Thanks for helping!
  • hipercohiperco Posts: 9
    The 4K has been around for a while. I only got $3750 on my left-over 09 in April, when the 2010's only had $3000. I wouldn't expect the $4000 to go away any time soon. I should have waited ;)

    A great site is truecar dot com. They show the pricing history.
  • bizibizi Posts: 17
    It seems that the rebate of $4000 or $3750 has been going on for a long time. Other dealer incentives come and go, however. June is not as good as May in pricing in California, although the rebate has been the same. We don't know if July is getting better or worse. The other factor is that 2011 model is coming out soon. We don't expect much change in that model, but a newer model year may make a difference in resale value.

    If I get a brand new Nissan Altima Hybrid 2009 now, would i still be able to get the 2350 tax credit for hybrid vehicles? or does the federal tax credit apply to only 2010 nissan altima hybrids? for tax year 2010.
  • mrashy2004mrashy2004 Posts: 15
    Hi. I would like to get one also and you can get the referral bonus.

    Please email me, I would love to buy one today.

  • onyx2005onyx2005 Posts: 5
    Yes, the tax credit is available of any "new, unregistered" hybrid, regardless of what year the vehicle is.
  • ndanndan Posts: 14
