Nissan Altima, Sedan
#528 of 3492 Re: 1999 Nissan Altima Limited Edition - negotiation [p76]
May 18, 2005 (12:23 am)
i've got a 98 SE altima, had since new. 85k miles now, runs awesome, been from Seattle to New Orleans and back with me twice. it gets low-mid 20's in the city, as high as 31-32 highway (cross country trips).
mine has little stickers with the VIN number on each of the exterior body panels. this is a good way to see if any panels have been replaced, indicating accident repair. maintenance costs are low, i do oil every 4k and have had dealer 30/60k services (every fluid changed, fuel filter, etc). other than that, only a new battery and tires.
pricewise, mine's got leather, sunroof, and is in above average condition, but it's a manual transmission. If I were to sell, I don't think i'd sell it for less than $5,500. so...your price is pretty fair. assuming it's an "SE Limited" with leather, roof, and the like. if it's a rental-spec "limited edition" with cloth seats and no roof, price is too high. there's a million of those out there. good luck.
#529 of 3492 2005 altima- 2 year lease?
May 22, 2005 (6:26 pm)
local dealer on Long island is offering $1000 down and about $200 per month for a 24 month (2 year lease)?
Wouldn't a two year lease make more sense for the customer than a three year? what's the advantage for the dealer?

there is no advantage to the dealer, or the customer. it just depends on whether you want to lease for 2 years, or go 3. the reason they are offering a 2 year deal is because that is what nissan's current lease special is. If the terms work for you, it really is a great price!

Well said, to me as a shopper spending a few hundreds more in return for good sevice and long term relation with the dealership and its service dep. is money wisely spened.

it most certainly is! i know around here anytime a loyal customer comes in, we bend over backwards for them. hassle free deals, free oil changes, throw in all kinds of accessories - you make a relationship like that with a dealer - you are all set! maybe you pay a bit more on a car than the hagglers of the world, but im sure people with a great relationship with a dealer are FAR happier than those who saved an additional $300.

i think the wind deflector makes a difference in wind noise when the roof is open. it's also less likely to create that weird pressure issue if you just open the sunroof and not any other windows. to me, its worth it!
