Nissan Maxima, Sedan
Jun 04, 2007 (10:04 am)
I just got a new lease on a Nissan Maxima SE 3.5L 2007. I paid taxes and fees upfront, but no additional down payment I believe the MSRP was around 29,400 w/ sunroof and no special pacakges. 39 month lease 12k miles/year, paying 365/month. Residual value 16,500. I want to know if I got a good deal, this is my first time leasing a car! I have good credit also! Thanks!

I went to check 07 Maxima SE $ 28,995 MSRP with Rebate offered by a dealer. They are trying to charge 6% sale taxes from the initial price of the car (28, 995). I was under impression that I have to pay taxes only from final price which is $28,995 minus rebate.
How Does it work?

Minneapolis area; purchased Precision Gray Metallic '07 SL. Moonroof, mudflaps, floormats. Edmunds lists total invoice $29,401; list $32,143. Purchased at $26,985 plus TTL. OTD $29,142 including $370 license; 34.50 title; $1754 tax. Stopped by the Wayzata Nissan dealer to see what they had on the lot. Just what I wanted and sat down and inked the deal in maybe 15 minutes. I may have been able to work the price down a little bit but I'm in sales and really don't have the time to screw around. From what I can tell, a pretty fair deal.

Sorry; I just posted the comments about the new '07 SL. Sales tax is based on purchase price. My purchase price was $26,985 and sales tax is 6.5% in Minnesota. Sales tax on the purchase agreement I inked at the dealer is $1754.03. Also, the $26,985 is less the available rebate.
FYI - I found on the Internet that there might be an additional $500 available in rebate form. From what I can tell, it appears you need to use Nissan financing to qualify. I did not use Nissan financing and used the $2500 rebate number in my offer and the dealer was very close to $2500 below invoice ($2416) in the final purchase price.

ask him to provide it to you in writing where it says that offer is only for US citizens. My guess he is trying to get some extra cash.

where do i find the difference between the maxima SE and SL and why can you seem to get SL at same or lessor price
does SL have a standard upgraded stereo?

SE is sportier has wider tires.
SL has softer suspension and softer ride. Also they use fake wood.
SL does not upgrade stereo.
If I were you, I will get an SE, but if you are cross shopping with Avalon or Azera, SL is closer in its ride.
