Feb 10, 2009 (3:23 pm)
I am in the DFW aera, I just picked up a fully load 350Z touring 2008, white pearl with orange burn leather with everything, nav, side airbags, aerodynamics package, 18" chrome wheels, and free tint + nitrosomething tire. The car is new, 20 miles on it
The sticker was $39,000 I paid $28,900 + TTLs ... yes 25% discount, no hassle, the Internet department women was really nice to work with (north Nissan Texas ). I am pretty happy

Picked up a pearl white 2008 6-speed for $21,900 + TT&L tonight. Brand new, plastic on the seats. Three dealerships in Dallas, TX matched the price before I decided on which one had the best colors to pick from.
MSRP was $29,x00. Ended up being right at 25% off like the guy above.

I've been looking for a 2008 leftover touring coupe at the dealers however haven't seen any left overs in MA. If anyone knows of any dealers in New England or Northeast who have some 08s left, please let me know.

#369 of 475 Just bought a used 2005 350Z Touring Manual 6
Apr 06, 2010 (3:01 pm)
Nissan of Santa Barbara called me after I test drove a brand new 2009 370z Enthusiast. Loved the car but out of my price range. Soo long story short... they had a silver 2005 Touring Manual 6 (so it has VDC, VLSD, leather and heated seats, nice rear view mirror, metal kick plates, etc) priced at 19,995.00 with 34,700k miles on it. I was going to look at a similar one at Nissan of Thousand Oaks and test drive the 2010 370z Auto in Simi Valley Nissan.
I test drove the one here they called me about, found a bad vibration noise behind the steering wheel, clutch is ok but not even close to new, air con. is still cold, radio is good. Only flaws, some scratching on the front passenger side, on the plastic sub woofer cover on driver side, one scratch on hood, tires are about 1/2 to 3/4 worn down but didn't see any uneven wear or odd wear. Brakes looked good, engine and transmission seemed solid. Found out it was owned by an older lady who traded it in for an Altima. She had purchased and had all serviced done at the dealership that called me, some small factory warranty stuff. Otherwise, impressively immaculate.
I debated about the total cost of ownership over my leased car (which I was considering buying out). I would be paying 400 more in insurance per year and $8 more in gas per half tank and get less mileage. But then the dealer took my lease as a trade in, paid it off and my last two payments that equaled $500. So in the end, I got basically got the deal I originally offered, but now with 1 year power train, free oil change and fix the vibration noise that gets bad on the freeway and got rid of the lease.
Mechanically solid, engine and transmission seem solid, getting about 19mpg city/highway at the moment but about 22-24 on highway. Clean leather and exterior, I can't complain. After 5 hours of haggling I got it down to a price I was willing to pay for it and the dealer was willing to sell. Coming from a family car, it's GREAT! So much torque and horsepower, I just baby it around mostly but when it's opened up to accelerate on the freeway, it's incredible fun.
Nissan of Santa Barbara, California - Sales service is great, technical service is helpful, but like every consumer end dealership in this area, the technicians are just not as good as Los Angeles or in the valley. Lots of mess ups happen here at the Honda, Nissan and Toyota dealership service garages. I've had bad experience with Honda and Toyota, I've learned so I will not be using Nissan's service garage for anything major except oil changes and basic maintenance.

#371 of 475 2008 Touring Convertible for sale
Jul 05, 2011 (9:15 am)
My Nissan has a marino blue (navy) body with a tan convertible top and cream leather inside.
It has almost 17,000 miles on it. I am thinking of selling it as it mostly sits in a garage in Florida.
It has all the add on's with the exception of the navigation system. (I have a portable GPS.)
I am the second owner and I searched for 6 months to find this beauty and it is in great condition.
What do you think is a reasonable price?

#374 of 475 Nissan 350Z: Lease Question
Sep 16, 2005 (12:00 pm)
You and kd were so helpful in educating me about leasing that I was saved from walking into a lease that would have cost me more money than it should. So, I put that dealer on the back burner until he calls me again (most likely in a few weeks to tell me they can now do what I thought was a fair deal).
In the meantime I'm going to see if I can get a good deal leasing a 2005 or 2006 Nissan 350Z Enthusiast.
What should I keep in mind for the residual and money factor. Also, what is the base and max amount for the "sell rate" markup because now I know they will throw that in too. I recall that the BMW lease was better if you stayed below a certain amount of months so if this holds true for the Nissan I'm also interested in how many months to lease for the best deal. 10 or 12,000 miles per year is fine.
Thank you kindly.
