#734 of 859 Maxima SV with Sport Pkg and trade
Mar 29, 2010 (12:50 pm)
Bought a 2010 Maxima SV with Sport pkg, floor mats and splash guards on 3/25/10. MSRP was 36330 and invoice of 33187. Took financing and traded a 2006 Maxima SL with 76000 miles and a transmission problem. KBB trade in on 2006 is $10850 in good condition and $9300 in fair condition. Retail is 16500 (we saw several similar 2006 Maximas on lots between 15900 and 18000). Dealer gave us $16,750 for the 2006 and we purchased 2010 at MSRP. I took 0%/60 mo financing
We were prepared to take 10,500 on the 2006 and pay 500 (cash to dealer rebate) under invoice for the 2010. With this formula they gave us 14143 for the 2006. I had an offer from another dealer for 400 under invoice and 9500 for the 2006. The 14143 is a very high number for a car with high miles and a transmission problem..oh and they ate the 350 bill to change fluids, do a large service and check out the transmission that was slipping/revving uncontrollably. Some of that money really came from discounting the 2010 lower than 500 under invoice.
So, for those of you shopping now, I think there is room beyond the 500 under invoice (we did not get 1250 rebate as we opted for financing as it is worth more than 1250). A trade in muddies the waters to know exactly what was paid for the 2010, but this may help someone. Purchase was in Reading PA area - Eisenhauer Nissan

Thought I did good the other day, but not sure now after reading some previous post, but Im still very happy with the dealership and love the car. Picked up a 2010 Maxima-S off a lost leader ad with an MSRP of $31530 for $25,777 plus tax and Lic in Los Angeles, Ca which brought it to $28742 O.T.D (in L.A you add about 11% to the selling price to get your out the door price, tax, lic and fees.
I took the 0% for 5 years instead of the $2000 cash back because it saves me $800 over the term at what would have been a 3.99 % loan rate. Im guessing the less loaded the car, the less room they have to bargain so maybe I did not do so bad. Still worked out to $5753 off of sticker. Hope this helps someone and not depress others

What did you end up paying? I have them $7k off $39,840. Maxima SV with everything I just feel I can still do better. 2011 coming out in a few months (August). Should we wait? Love to have $8k -$10k off. We have a new Infiniti G37 that we received $11k off MSRP a few months ago. But we waited right before 2010 came out in February.

Paid $31K + TTL for 2010 Maxima SV with MSRP of $39.7K.
Used Nissan vpp pricing (friends & family) which was 4.3% off the Invoice cost.
Received $1,250 Nissan rebate plus $1,000 for being a Toyota owner.
vpp pricing = $34,553
I then told the sales mgr I was still shopping his price. He asked what I wanted to pay to get the business. I told him $31K and he agreed.

Where did you get that deal? I'm in Atlanta. Gwinnett Place Nissan is at $33k ($39,840 sticker).
I will buy from anywhere in country and have it shipped.
I'm going to also get them to throw in Sport Wheels (19") They don't like to do that, but they have so many Maxima Sport sitting out there with 19". No one wants the Sport package because you lose some nice options (i.e. dual moonroof, wood trim, rear controls)

#742 of 859 dealership wouldn't negotiate on cash deal
Apr 20, 2010 (6:21 am)
Saw a car that fit 95% of what I wanted, (the color was not my desired choice). It was a 2004 Nissan Maxima sl with 125000 miles on it. I made an offer 200.00 below the TMV, which was 2500.00 below the dealers asking price. The sales rep. told be they could drop off 500.00 and their price was firm... I thanked the salesman for his time and walked out the dealership... before I could get to my car, he offered to take another 500.00 off.... I told him it was a cash deal and gave him my final offer, the TMV value... The sales manager came out and laughed saying no deal... I gave them my card and said thank you again and drove off... this car has sat at their site for over a 6 weeks.. My father said,"if they don't sell it in the next 3 to 5 days, they will car and make another offer to me... Of course, I am still shopping confident that I will get the right car for MY PRICE.......lol
