Yes, that's what the altima's price is supposed to be.
No, I don't think it's a normal price for every where or all the time. It might be true for your area or if you buy it in the right time.
I helped my brother to get a 2011 2.5S like yours minus the Special Edition almost 2 months ago. We needed to go to 3 dealers in order to get 19.5K +TTL.
Best price at Truecar now is $20,622 (like yours) + TTL in Philly area.

#3025 of 3493 Was I fooled by my Car dealer
Aug 02, 2011 (7:33 am)
I am new this country and hence I dont have any credit hisory. I bought a Nissan Altima 2.5S 2012 putting 50% as down payment and my relative who had 751 FICO score co-signed for me. The dealer made my relative as the main buyer and I as the co-buyer. He charged an extra 500 dollars stating that I belong to Tier 4 and and my relative belong to Tier 1 otherwise my interest rate for the finance would shoot up. So is this additional fee actually charged or was I fooled??? Somebody please advise me. Thanks in advance.

I just bought a new 2011 Nissan Altima on July 30.
I got the 2.5S with Convenience package + Carpeted floor mats + Aluminum kick plates + trunk sub floor organizer.
The car was listed at some $24850 or so.
I got it for $19322 + TTL = $21450 out of door (CA taxes suck!!)
The dealer was trying to force GAP insurance on me for $600 and I said that no way am I buying that, so he removed that.
Though, he did end up selling me some phantom sticker warranty thing for $99 which helps recover cars if stolen.
Apart from that since I did not have that good a credit score (~ 650), I got the loan at 4.74%
Quite happy that the dealer reduced the base price by at least $5500.
Note: This includes $500 of new college graduate discount.

It sounds like you got a very good deal to me. I bought my new 2010 exactly a year ago and have really loved it. Only had one weird problem...the battery having to be replaced after 3 months. I have never heard of that $99 thing you bought. I would be interested to know if anyone knows if it is worth anything. Happy driving!
#3028 of 3493 Altima Pricing and Insurance
Aug 03, 2011 (6:05 pm)
Drove the Altima and consider it far superior to Fusion, Malibu, and 200. Few questions for the forum:
1) Costco plan is $100 over invoice. Is this as good as it gets or should I try to negotiate lower with another dealer?
2) I am over 50, no accidents or claims for over 20 years. Yet, the insurance quote for the Altima 2.5S was $632/six months or about $220 over my Grand Prix. Is the Altima abnormally high? I did notice on the IFHS website that it ranked lower in crash tests than many of the mid-sized cars.
3) How difficult is it to order a Special Edition with no other options? I am getting it for the foglights. Or is it easier to just get a 2.5S and have the lights installed as an accessory?
4) Is the quality the same for vehicles coming out of both plants?
Thank you in advance for any insights you can provide!
