#2981 of 3489 is this a good deal on nissan 2008?
Jun 01, 2011 (11:27 pm)
Is this a good deal? i went in myself (female) I just don't want to get screwed. First time buying a car.
2008 nissan altima; 40k miles, fully loaded but no GPS ( dealer will throw in free portable GPS), leather seats, alloy rims, sunroof. warranty is for 60k miles, the extended warranty is extra money.
my credit is 650 and i'm going to put down 4k. He said $15,000 but not including tax and fees... with a monthly payment of $255.00 at 7% interest rate
Can I negotiate this lower? Originally listed for $16,995 as their "special internet price"
this is nissan in nassau county Long Island New York.

40k miles is not bad for a '08. If the car is really loaded (2.5 SL) and no accident, the price is o.k.
Warranty-there's no more B2B on this car, powertrain is good till 60K miles and transmission is good till120k miles or 10 years.
Personally, you should just buy a 4k car with your current credit score. You can save more money, improve your credit score and then buy a new Altima after a year or 2.
#2983 of 3489 Altima Rebates
Jun 06, 2011 (9:51 pm)
Recently (May & June) the Nissan dealers in my area have been offering $5000-5500 rebates on all Altimas bringing the price of a 2011 2.5S (no bells & whistles) down to about $18.5k-19k and 2.5 to about $17k. Very hard to negotiate though, even Honda is more flexible.
Why is only Nissan offering such a low price while the other manufacturers are not? A slightly upgraded Civic goes for $18.5k...

#2985 of 3489 2011 Nissan Altima 2.5S (Convenience+Convenience Plus+Bluetooth)
Jun 09, 2011 (12:20 pm)
It's been a while since I came back to this thread. Nice to see such a widespread interest in the new Altima. I bought one recently for my girlfriend and I must admit that I am quite impressed with the construction quality. It's just a good solid car but I did have the "Check Engine" light come on once for some unknown reason. It did go off by itself but was enough to freak me and my girl out... The car basically had 1650 miles on it when the check engine light came on and went off... The dealership was not sure what was wrong... Anyways, I am happy with my purchase and thought it is better to invest in an extended warranty... Who can give me the details to buy an extended warranty (Nissan only) cheap? No third party fake warranties please.... Any help greatly appreciated....

My Altima is about a year old. I am loving it so far. I am very interested in what information you receive about the extended warranty. I have not decided if I will get one, even though I plan to keep my car for about 10 years. My engine light seems to come on every time the car is scheduled for maintenance. I wonder if the dealership has a way to make that happen (maybe I am crazy to wonder about this.) Anyway, my dealer claims that not taking off and replacing the gas cap exactly perfectly causes this to happen. I did find out that, as you said, the engine light went out eventually. I am not sure, but I think it took about 3 weeks or so.
#2987 of 3489 2011 Nissan Altima 3.5SR Coupe in Texas
Jun 10, 2011 (10:01 am)
I went in to drive (and presumably buy) a 370z, but it didn't quite suit me. I was also interested in the Altima coupe, figuring I could save some money and gain some comfort over what's really a not-at-all-practical weekend car (the Z). Of all the cars I drove (VW R32, Dodge Challenger R/T, Audi A4, Kia Optima SX, Nissan Maxima SV, Ford Fusion Sport, Nissan 370Z), it seemed like a great choice. I took it for a 3-day weekend test drive to be sure, and I decided that was the one for me (despite tiny back seats). I feel like I got a pretty good deal, too, but who can ever be sure?
New 2011 Nissan Altima Coupe 3.5SR V6 CVT
Slate exterior, charcoal interior
Tech package (which inherently implies the previous packages)
Floor mats & such
Pretty much everything but kick plates (it was the only one available).
List price was $34,545
- Mfg cash rebate $500
My negotiated price was $30,545
I had them run up a lease on the same car, same price (maybe not the $500 rebate). With excellent credit on a 36 month lease, 12,000 miles, it came out to $439 per month, or something close to that.
I chose to buy with 0% financing from Nissan instead of an extra $1250 incentive.
I got a pretty good deal on my trade-in, too (though I'll miss my Infiniti). So, after about $3250 down (plus tax credit for the trade-in), I am paying $474 per month for 60 months.
I hope that helps to give you an idea of what to expect if you're willing to work at it. I'm pretty happy with the car so far.

I know Nissan was offering $500 rebate for financing thru them (not the 0% APR option) along with 1750 rebate going on during Memorial day sale. Was the offer from ABC Nissan considering the financing discount?
