#767 of 3491 Re: Thoughts & good price point for 2007 Altima 2.5 S with 2.5 SL Package [
Dec 28, 2006 (7:11 pm)
Just leased an 2.5S with SL package in Marlboro, MA. It was Dark Slate outside, black inside and fog lights. I was trading in a 2001 altima with 85k on it,that had been stolen and repaired with with 9k in damage. I got trade in value of over $5500 and $500 recent collage grad rebate. I walked out of the dealership paying nothing, everything including 1st month payment and all taxes and fees taken care of.
The terms were 12k miles a year, 42 months for $299.62.
While doing the paperwork with the finance guy I extend the warranty from the 36k/36 months to the full 42 months and added roadside assistance and free towing to a Nissan dealership, along with 100% free rental car when I am without my car for an extra $3.47 a month. I don't have AAA, so I though why not and in the past 4 years I have had to pay for a tow truck 3x.
This car is SICK, it is by far the best car for the money even when you just stay at the base 2.5S trim level. Toyota Camry and Honda Accord don't hold a candle to this. I think I got a good deal, I hope I did, but I don't care right now as am so pumped I got this amazing car. What do you think of my deal? Did I do good or maybe I could have done a little better?

I just bought an 06 Altima Special Edition for $17000 complete after rebate from a Milwaukee area dealer. This one replaces my 02 Altima which moves on to one of my sons. My Nissan experiences have been wonderful.

Dec 29, 2006 (9:47 pm)
paid for 2.5s : 18,987
SL package : 3501
ABS : 260
mats : 127
splash guard : 102
Freight charge :615
dealer profit : 408

title/regis etc.. : 150.50
vin etch : 249
extended service contract : 705.02
extended maintenance contract : 910 (good job you guys )
Can I get refund for those extended things? Even though they said I can get free engine oil change for 5 years, it seems too expensive.

You need to get out your paperwork and go over it with a fine-toothed comb..
You likely can't get out of the VIN etch, as they actually put work into that (even if it is only worth $30). But, the service contract (warranty?) and maintenance contract likely have cancellation provisions...
The sooner you cancel, the more money you save.. If you've only had the car for one day, they might re-do your paperwork and save you the trouble of doing an official cancellation..
The extended warranty may not be a rip-off, but I wouldn't recommend it. Paying for maintenance in advance on a Nissan? That can't be a good deal.
One point: If you've financed these extras, and you have to jump through the official hoops to cancel them, then you probably won't get a check back. If their is a lien on your vehicle, any refund will be sent to the bank to reduce the loan amount on your vehicle. (which still benefits you).

The $17000 did not include tax or title. The same dealer wanted $17000+ for a basic 07 Sentra.
