What is this discussion about?
Nissan Maxima, Sedan
#308 of 859 I bought a Maxima SL Silver with charcoal interior
Jun 07, 2005 (12:57 pm)
Here is the deal I received on 5/31. Was it a good one??
2005 SL - DPP, sunroof, satellite radio, splash guards, floor mats and trunk mat, tcs.
Sticker - 32,550
Invoice - 29,672
Paid - 27,587 that's with the 1250 rebate and dealer holdback (does not include tax, tags and dealer fees.) I also purchased the Gold Preferred Plus 60 mos - 100, 000 for $893. He said that was $50 over his invoice price. ?? I had to actually ask the finance guy to show me the vehicle protection plans.
I usually do not buy the ext warranty but this is bumper to bumper through Nissan and there is a lot of gadgets in this car that could become expensive to fix. I almost took the 3% finance and gave up the rebate but the finance guy let me keep the rebate along with 4.89% for 60 mos.
I had a great buying experience. My husband loves his new car. So everyone is happy.
I really wanted a red one but the only one I found was more then an hour away and he wanted $28,225 and refused to match the above price. He said it was to good a deal to be true. Luckily my husband likes the silver just as much.
To those of you still looking there are deals to be made.

I am certainly not an expert but sounds good.
I was quoted the following:
2005 Maxima SE
15K miles a year
$385 a month.
If i paid Taxes/Title/Fees/first payment - roughly $1,500 in my state - payment would have dropped to $366
I really wanted an SE with a moon roof.
That was $410 with nothing down and $390 with $1,500 down.
I so wish i could have bought it but my budget would have been stretched. A couple of years ago i purchased my dream car - a 2003 Max SE. I loved it!!!!! Ten months later i had to sell it - long story - has to do with a divorce. So, now i drive a fabulous 2004 Honda Civic with 117 ponies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! On the bright side - my monthly gas bill dropped from $130/month to $80.
Since i did buy the car - not sure what the residual price was.

nissan is not currently offering the rebate with a lease. they do however, have $500 lease cash currently available. The current national lease is $309 for an SE with sunroof, floor mats, splash guards, Automatic, with $1999 due at signing. these payments do not include tax (since they cannot quote a tax nationally when every state is different), or registration and dealer fees. it seems as though (short of me actually running the lease) that you are in good shape if your $315 a month is with taxes. make sure they gave you the $500 lease cash! let me know if you have any other questions!

I'm looking for an SE with DPP and satellite radio (XM). I live in Atlanta, and I did the dealer quote on Edmunds. After reading these posts, I'm disappointed with what I received. The invoice is 29239 and I've received a quote of 28610 (car only) and 31548 (OTD - traction control, floormats, splash guards, sunroof?) For the second quote, I have to clarify the sunroof part b/c I think that's the standard one. Do you know if I should be able to get this car at invoice or closer to invoice?
These quotes included the rebate!

you should be able to get invoice, however different markets may have different supply and demand. if you are getting similar pricing across the board (couple of hundred over invoice) then that is what the market is commanding in your area. you could email all the dealers around and say the first one to sell you the car for invoice minus the rebate including all the equipment you are looking for, you'll buy. see if that lights any fires under any butts!
