Nissan Altima, Sedan
#3215 of 3493 2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 S
Jul 18, 2012 (1:31 am)
I purchased my first Altima last night at a dealership in Northern NJ (near Paterson) and think I got a smoking deal, you be the judge.
MSRP was $24,340. I ended up negotiating down to $17,500++ with an out the door of $19,7xx which includes the NJ registration at $400. Of course they added a doc fee of $299 and window etching of $299 but I still think I came out ok. I was prepared to pay cash but they said to get the deal I would need to finance at ~4.25% for 60 months but I could prepay w/out penalty after 90 days. I was able to put $5k on a credit card though. Before we even started negotiating, I told my sales person they are not going to make any money off of me but I'd give them $50 if we could work out a deal on my terms and they clearly fought hard for me (we got up to leave twice) but he had the sales manager chasing after us.

Thanks - appreciate the feedback. I think I ended up doing pretty good in the end...MSRP 28850, purchase price 22500.

i think that's a tad on the expensive side. i was looking into buying a 2012 last week. A 2.5s, and i was getting one for 16k including ALL fees plus tax. I was going to get the 2012, but then after seeing the 2013, I changed my mind. I got the 2013 for 21,600 all fees plus tax. That was 22,500 msrp. They tried to get me to spend 25k plus tax on it. lmao. This was at star nissan in queens, ny.

Is that the SL with Bose Premium Audio package? You got $ 6350 off MSRP !!?? Sweet! What was your OTD price ?
Did you have to pay any additional doc fees, processing fees or anything? And did you get any special financing or did you opt for the cashback ?

I'd have to see it to believe it. I walked out of another dealership that sent me an e-quote for 15,995 but that soon became 20k because I'm not a recent grad, not coming off a lease, not current Nissan owner... So I guess if you qualify you could get for 16k but its unlikely 99% of the people actually qualify for all the gimmicks.
#3220 of 3493 2012 2.5SL w/ nav - fully loaded
Jul 21, 2012 (10:51 am)
Here's the deal I'm currently getting:
2.5 SL fully loaded - $22,500
doc/destination fees = $1,000
VA taxes = $1,000
8 yr/100k ext warranty = $1,500
Total OTD = $26,000
Let me know if you think this is a good price. I feel like the doc and dest fees are high, and I need to lower the base price of the car to compensate!

Think you are doing good. Our final price was right at 24K (Including tax, title etc). It was loaded with everything except no navigation.

That sounds like a great price. Are you getting good financing rates for that ? Or did you forego financing to get additional discounts on the price?

Jul 25, 2012 (3:03 pm)
I took financing to get an additional discount of $500. 2.9% interest rate. May just pay down on it early. Overall since it was loaded we felt like we got a really good deal.
#3224 of 3493 Re: Altima 2.5s with anniversay package [lexxluthor]
Jul 27, 2012 (8:06 am)
Did you buy the one with Anniversary package for $24930 - $7400 = $17530 ? I'm getting the same one for $19200 and that is the best deal so far..
Appreciate your response..
