I am planning to buy my first car, and I found this forum so helpful. Thank you everyone!
I am looking for a 2013 Altima 2.5 SV w/ nav, the MSRP is $28,140, and the dealer gave me $24,650 OTD after all rebates.
These are the installed options:
Vehicle tracking system.
Is it a good deal? How much room for negotiation? Thank you so much!

Just bought new 2013 Altima 2.5 SL, dark blue with tan leather, with splash guards, mats, wheel locks from Autonation Clearwater Nissan. Also got 5 yr roadside asst and 2 yr maint plan thrown in with deal. See price details below. Overall, easy to do deal with dealer, but they started with a very high price even though their online price was shown much lower. Once i threw their competitor prices at them to beat or I would walk, they were more willing to negotiate. Got what i wanted without having to drive to another dealer, Jenkins Nissan in Lakeland, which offered very low price with a few extras like kick plates and illumnation. Also got 0% financing for 5 yrs.
Negotiated price: 23869
dealer fee: 699
battery fee: 1.50
tire fee: 5
tag fee: 99
sales tax: 1528
county taxes: 65
title fee: 364
factory rebate: -500

Does your OTD total price include taxes?

Looks like this forum post was down for sometime and it appears back to normal now.

Looking at a 2014 SV with nav, conv, carpeted mats, splash guards,. MSRP $27,240 internet quote $22,897 includes dest but not tax, reg, etc..I will qualify for their 0% financing, and $750 and $500 offers..How much better can I do?? I have no trade as other car was totaled. I am shooting for $21,500 plus tax...Thoughts???? Car that I want is in stock......BTW I am in Albany, NY and a high powered dealer just took over an existing Nissan franchise...High powered meaning...he advertises likes mad....and has many other dealerships in the area.

I'd shoot for under $21K but, not sure about the competitiveness of your region.
A local dealer on Long Island said they'll beat $24K on a 3.5SL with tech, spoiler, etc but, I'm unconvinced Altima is the best in this segment and I wasn't "sold" on the CVT transmission, there seems to be a "lag" when accelerating

Thanks for your insight..the price from LI for under 24K for 6 loaded is sharp. I am going this morning to test drive and if we like the car..we will see what we can do. There are now 3 Nissan dealers within 10 miles of me...and the new one Fucillo just opened and he is very,Very promotional..I hate car shopping but I think today I will have fun with the entire experience and see what I can come up with..I am originally from NYC..would be curious if you could name the dealer there..What car would you recommend in the segment..Thanks in advance for your help.
#3489 of 3491 MY RESULTS..2014Altima SV
Nov 29, 2013 (11:28 am)
Was quoted $23,578 for the 2014 SV w/ nav, splash guards, conv package, carpeted mats, trunk net and body SM.....the OTD price w/8% sales tax, doc fees, and other fees was $25,836.74. This also included 0% finance for 5 yrs, and Apple Ipad. It also included $1250 in Nissan incentives...The sales manager took 3 runs at me after the salesman quoted me his first price which was over $27K...OTD...The sales manager swore to me that they were making NOTHING on the deal at the $23,578 because of the 0% financing, rebates and I pad. He told me that I would never believe him in regard to his FINAL price that he was making zero on the sale. The car had been on his lot since Aug 17, 2013...I thanked them for their time and left. I liked the car...quite a difference from the 2000 Altima that was just wrecked...Had a nice ride and the amenities were fine. Tomorrow I look at one of the other dealers in town that just took over a Nissan dealership...
I think I could do better. What do you folks think of the deal that I got which I turned down?
#3490 of 3491 2013 SL & 2014 SL
Dec 08, 2013 (2:53 pm)
I got 2 offers yesterday before tax... This just a the price
2013 SL with Tech & Roof - $25695
2014 SL with Tech & Roof - $25000 which was only for 24 hrs and after that 26000
I had to pass on both... $25000 looks unreal with to be true....
What you guys think???

Look at my previous post...and I walked away from that..I realize no leather and no tech..but IMHO neither of your offers was anything to get excited about. You have to mention are you using their financing..is their a trade, etc. I am going to wait until next week to really shop as I believe that the dealers in my area are NOT..moving Altimas at all...I keep track of the number of cars on Nissans site and there has been little inventory movement in the past 10 days./..I am thinking Nissan will sweeten their offers by mid Dec and the dealers will be very hungry going toward years end....I will keep the board up to date with my shopping experience. BTW my price did not include sales tax
