Simmer, I am not giving up for sure. But I have had three dealers who have given me written value of this Maxima $20,000.00 and the highest $21,000.00 just days after the deal in which the sales manager valued the car at nearly $28,000. in writing. Both were used vehicles so I can't see a drop that fast in that amount. The other dealerships have told us we were out right lied to about the value on both. Imagine a car salesman lying to us?
I have an attorney on it and the local news. So we will see what happens now. I hope to keep others from being taken advantage of by them for sure. Bad business is bad business and they should change their slogan about the customer satisfaction. Thanks for the imput and support. I would love to sell it outright or trade it but not at a $8000.00 loss

Simmer! Just talked to the general manager Randy Santos, and he is going to give us our Acadia back with a full refund or our money! My husband is going in tomorrow to switch out autos! Very happy. Guess that no one wants to go to court or be on the news, shame on that sales manager, Dean;;; But thank you for your support and encouraging me to move forward and not give up. Thanks to the general manager for making this right!

You did pretty good, I got an 11 Maxima Premium Crimson Black MSRP 41k on lease for $350 a month with $1500 down for 39 months 12k miles year. Buy out is $22,400 but I paid a little more upfront with less miles allowance for the lower payment. About the same overall cost as you.

I forgot to mention I got the tech package also. I've been pretty happy with the deal. A guy in my work was paying $472 for an 09 base SV. Thats $4,758 more and didnt get the car fully loaded. oof.

Good for you. I am glad you got justice here. The sales manager was out of line. (good guy bad guy routine? we wont really know) They would have taken your money had you not pushed. Many, many people will not. Its a numbers game for sales people. They get ahead by making thier numbers and get rewarded for breaking thier numbers. Cars, appliences, most any item that has a sales force tends to follow the same rules. Saturn used to be the one who broke that trend (or were much publicised for doing it, I have no experience with them personally)
In a case such as yours, the Internet is your tool.
As much as I do love my Maxima, the Acura was my next choice. Personally I am not a follower, so no Toyotas or Iphones for me
#850 of 859 2012 3.5S w/ Limited Edition Package
Oct 19, 2012 (4:06 pm)
The lowest the dealership is willing to go on the 3.5S with LE package is $26,900. This price includes the Nissan rebate of $4K. The Sticker price is $34,435. Doing the math, they are discounting this vehicle $7,535 off sticker price. The dealership is located in the Boston, MA area.
Is this a reasonable price to pay? Any responses are greatly appreciated!

That sounds like a good deal depending on the options. I did not research, what does the LE come with? Leather? sport wheels? etc? Im from Ma. myself and did a lot of research last year at this time. Have a good handle on the non sport max. there were a few reasons I didnt buy the S but price wise, the S is much less money. Cars.com lists 2012 max_S at around 30-32K so it sounds like a very good price. If you decide to buy, def check it out with a mechanic before you buy. A lot of cars get purchased at auction and therefore dealers can still make a tidy profit from a ar similar to yours. You have to make sure its not been hit and repaired, and if so, was it repaired right (as in minor hit) it may still be worth pursueing regarless IF it was an auction car. Car fax will help but not always do they get reported. Thats where a good mechanic can look it over and find things you dont see. Which dealer is this? I have had some experience with several in MA all the way into Boston too. My mechanic would look a car like this over for no cost. You may get a $25-30 charge to have someone do this but its well worth it. Never ever trust a dealer.

Thanks alot for the response. It is appreciated. Never trust the dealers-I def hear you. As for your questions....The car is brand new 2012 with just 50 miles on it. The Limited edition package only stickers for an additional $710 so it doesn't include much more than the regular (S) model. The seats are cloth. The LE package includes dark hyper silver wheels,smoked headlights and dark finish sports grille, HID xenon lights, fog lights, outside mirrors with led turn signal, rear spoiler, digital compass in rear view mirror and metallic trim inside the car.
The car comes with 3 other small options..... mats,splash guards and trunk organizer.

Straight forward but don't buy any maint. Plan or extras
