#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

I live in IL NW burbs; here is what I am getting from multiple dealers in the Area.
MSRP $39,330 - EPrice: $32,562 * e-Price includes premium package, tech package, splash guards, floor and trunk mats. I am not sure if this includes $1250 which I am really presing hard on negotiating with 0% APR for 60 months. Either $1250 or 0 for 60 months; but $500 is there with either case.
Another Dealer:MSRP $38,970 - *Internet Price: $31,518.00 (Options: Monitor Package, Sport Package, Sport Technology Package, Splash Guards, Floor Mats, Trunk Sub Floor Organizer).
Now here is this special from dealer in prime suburb: 25%OFF MSRP
I am still shopping!

From my experience most quotes sent from dealerships internet managers are including the $1250 rebate and not including the destination charge. Factor this in and the price goes up around $2,000.
Most people will take the $500 rebate and 0% APR.
I mentioned getting the $1250 rebate and 0% APR I was told it's not possible. The quotes I listed in my last post include the Destination Charges.

I'm in Chicago area as well. Is that 25% off MSRP promo for real? I've never heard anything good about the dealer that offers this. In my opinion, even with the incentives, the Maxima is overpriced by $2,500.

My visit to Nissan... in FL
2010 Maxima SV Premium+ Prim Tech Pkg
MSRP price... $39580 + protection package ($995) + Spoiler ($370).
-Total Sticker: $40945.
-Internet price 33899 + Tax and Tag. (After rebate..)
Final price after 1hr at dealer = $33,000 OTD. With 0% finance (I had $1500 trade for 1996 Maxima GXE). Also, I had to pick from their lot. They had only Black and Crimson Black with SV Premium+ Prim Tech Pkg which was not color of my choice.
By the way he offered $34,000 OTD from other dealerís inventory and can get the car in 24hrs... which will be choice of my color (Dark Slat). I said 33,000 OTD...we did not come to the deal then I walked away...
(Additional Info... other dealer in area which I have not visited yet since they don't have my color... his internet price is $32700+ TTL for SV Sport package + Sport Tech Pkg. Constraint.. only one color... Tuscan Sun on his lot).
Please share your opinion..
#749 of 859 Very Hard To Get Quotes
Apr 30, 2010 (7:05 am)
I live in Bucks County,PA. I went through the process of requesting quotes from about 6 dealers, not one dealership actually gave me a qoute, they all however send massive e-mails and leave numerous messages on my phone requesting for me to come in and take advantage of their great deals.
Then when you actually get the quote, you get it without the destination charges included, but they make sure they include the $1250 rebate and don't mention you can't take the $1250 rebate combined with 0% APR.
Too much Bulls*** with this process ...
Yesterday I spent the day going to a few dealerships in my area.
Colonial Nissan in Feasterville PA was about $1000 higher for the Maxima SV with Premium or the SV Sport Package than the other 2 dealers I went to, and Colonial Nissan offered me $3500 less for my trade than the other 2 dealers. Right now I'm working with the other 2 dealers to see which one will give me the best overall deal between the new car price and my trade in. They are both within $500 or so.
Will post numbers and dealer info when the deal is done.

Somethingís never change...It's a horrible business. It's the bottom of the barrel when it comes to people and ethics. It's all about deception and lies. One of the worse profession out there...Just above Burglarís and just below Airlines and Telemarketers. Sorry if I offended anyone but this has just been my experience over the last 20 years (full time business traveler and purchaser of about 15 cars). Use a car buying service. It's funny how it also says quick quote via internet and you never get a real price back.

I guess I'm lucky to have had a relatively good experience on my last two purchases...shopped Nissan, bought Honda entirely over the internet. The key was to separate the fast talkers unwilling to provide straightforward pricing very early in the discussion. Both times I ended up with an excellent price for exactly the car I wanted, and took less than a day.
I believe the key was that I did lots of research up front (Edmunds is great for that), and knew exactly what I was after and what a good price was. Then I told the dealers I wouldn't be going back and forth between them, that if their first offer wasn't in the top two, they wouldn't hear back from me. That generated a couple of serious offers, and got rid of the idiots. From there it took ~1 more round of negotiation with my top choice to turn it into a great deal. It helped that one time I bought on the last day of the month, the other was a year-end deal.
I know it's not a guaranteed system, but it's worked for me.
